Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

And because I know you will.

NO ONE IS SUPPORTING THE GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER OF OUR ENERGY INDUSTRY!

The things that we know will happen with a warming planet are. Sea level rise. Unpredictable seasonal weather patterns. More intense droughts.

The whole thing with there being more warmth is that it translates to their being more energy in the atmosphere.

There is a good bit of uncertainty in regards to what exactly is going to happen climate wise to this planet.

BUT! There are some things that we know will happen if the planet continues to warm. Which it has been doing and you Stillhere/Tiredofit agreed with until you changed your story. You might have disagreed with the cause but you did agree that it was going on until that angle played out for your crusade and you took up the no warming in 18 years bit.

" Unforeseen phenomenon can't exactly be programed into a model." Typo correction.

No one is having a fit. LOL! I don't know about the others but I find it really amusing that you are getting tripped up by simple aspect of science.

As new information comes in scientific findings change.

You are also tripped up on the aspects of climate modeling. The models can not really predict what is going to happen in the short term.

Our weather and climate is a very dynamic thing.

We just don't have the ability to simulate the whole shebang in the most absolute of detail.

Thats why its really no surprise when a prediction is off. Unforeseen phenomenon can exactly be programed into a model. Like the wind shear changing in the Atlantic in such a way that it prevents the formation of Hurricanes after it was said that they would become more numerous and more powerful.

Stillhere informed us that "the upper part of the world’s oceans continue to absorb heat from global warming."

There is no pause. It continues.

"Lol as EVERY prediction fails to materialize, NOW they claim we cannot believe their own sources, lolool"

No whats really funny is that you complain about funding being a big influence on why the scientists make the findings they do therefore every things they say must be suspect.

That is until you find a scientist that supports what you believe who you then cite as proof of your positions. All the while never giving them the same scrutiny that you give to scientists who support an issue that you disagree with.

Global warming continues, according to stillhere, who posted that "the upper part of the world’s oceans continue to absorb heat from global warming."

"Curry actually entered the public eye in 2005, with a paper in Science magazine warning that hurricanes were likely to become more intense as a result of climate change."

Remember chiding us because the predictions of more severe hurricanes never came true?

Guess where that came from?

Her! LOL! And low and behold there you are appealing to her authority.

Who needs instruments to look at fossils, moderation? I certainly agree that we don't have any way to know exact prehistoric temperatures. So called heat records now don't mean anything.

I'm sorry,I don't have time to teach you. You can read it on your own.

There has been warming in the past 18 years...indeed that is...so.

That's so.

What instruments did the use in prehistoric times? Ithink, you can't cover that up and hide it,it still smells.

Posted 623 days ago.

moderation, it is hard to believe that you asked how I know ice sheets existed. Just look it up.

Unlike the future, which we do not know anything about for certain, there is much indisputable evidence about some things that happened in the past.

Tired-the earth has experienced its warmest September and consecutive, including this passed September,six month period since records for temperatures have been kept.

You still haven't responded to your reference of how the ice sheets may have melted,ithink.how do you know they even existed? I am surely not aware of any biblical mention .

Yup,myth.We sold them all of that same technology we found to be so evil down the road.

We have altered and destroyed many ecosystems.so2 does affect natural and man made surfaces.We have made water sources unusable, as well as the aquatic life within them.The nitrate runoff from agricultural lands is an unsustainable practice.We have been shown that we can negativity modify all of our natural surroundings.How many of you two still believe the moon landing was faked?

U.S. kept discovery of abandoned chemical weapons secret

Chew on that for awhile.

Some facts about that story.

Those discoveries flew in the fact of the Bush administration's assertion that Saddam was actively making chemical weapons.

The weapons were pre 1991. And had components MADE by American companies in them. Namely chemical precursors for the chemical weapons.

When did this stuff get over there. On Reagan's watch.

LOL! You guys will make things worse not better.

You might find it interesting to know that I hope the Republicans gain the House and get total control.

The clusterf-uck that will come out of the is going to be a comedy goldmine.
