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.

"You are just plain WRONG and you are too invested to admit it."

I'm invested? Reeeeeallly? LOL!

Ummm. No.

You on the other hand seem to be heavily invested in posting on here. I mean you got kicked off and chose a new username that just screams 'hey look at me'. And you enjoy insulting people not just on here but also at the Marietta Times. Which you also got kicked off of.

Your investing in all of this was also well demonstrated by you posting reams of copied articles off of other websites and then pasting them on here while no one was arguing with you.

So yea pot calling kettle.

Such an intelligent vocabulary. Troll, troll, troll. Faux, faux faux.

Why don't you discuss 18 years of no warming, ohweirdone? Or the weak huricane years? Or the very rich climate baloney sellers?

There's no POINT when discussing things with you are rather trying to discuss things with you.

You are dead set against this issue because of political reasons....not the facts. The facts are meaningless to you. All you are focused on is swatting down what you perceive to be a socialist cause.

"Did you have to wear a helmet in math class just curious"

You know I knew a boy who had to wear a helmet because he had downs syndrome and would occasionally have seizures.

I guess in your social sphere its ok to make fun of people with disabilities.

No surprise that you are showing yourself to be an even bigger P OS than what I already though.

Good job sport!

Oh and to make it clear. CO2 is making is it so that the earth is carrying more heat. The CO2 heats the atmosphere and due to various forms of mixing with the water that is in the oceans the heat that is in the atmosphere ends up in the oceans.

The atmosphere affects the oceans and in turn the oceans affect the atmosphere. There are several methods by which this happens. All of which I doubt you even care to be told about since you're going to deny it anyways.

"So how is CO2 in the atmosphere ONLY heating the water>>>???? that makes NO SENSE"

There's this called heat transfer. And also you might not know this but there isn't any kind of barrier between the atmosphere and the water.

StillTiredofit........they actually touch. :| LOL!

For three hours, Shawn Panhandlety browsed in Scud Fudd’s hardware store. He ended up at the fastener department and selected a box of ¼-20 bolts an inch and a half long. Then he discovered he’d dropped his wallet somewhere in the store. He told Fudd he thought it might be in the fastener department.

“Wait here,” said Fudd. “I’ll look.”

Panhandlety watched Fudd march to the fastener department, glance around, then return, all within 2 minutes' time.

“It’s not in the store,” Fudd declared.

“But it could be anywhere in the store” Panhandlety protested. “I know I had it when I came it.”

“Oh, so it just decided to leave the fastener department and crawl somewhere else,” Fudd sneered. “Do you know how idiotic that sounds?”

Panhandlety retorted, “I sure do, and I can’t understand why you would suggest it.”

Mythravere gets it right again. It's silly to think the globe in global warming consists only of the atmosphere. Just as it's stupid to intimate that heat "decides" to go somewhere. Heat has no capacity to make decisions. It moves from a warmer place to a colder.

"so lets get this straight, somehow, global warming ended 18 year ago but just decided to warm the upper part of the ocean and not land, LOLOL SURE that is PROOF POSITIVE LOL"

Well when the area of land on this planet comprises somewhere around 29% of the total surface area with the oceans taking up the rest it only makes sense that the oceans would pick up more warming than the land mass would.

When you factor in the discovery that the oceans have taken up more heat than anticipated...then you get an understanding of why the atmospheric heating has leveled off for the most part.

I know its hard to understand but this is science updating itself with new information.

What evidence?

Mythravere,

You also reposted,

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

According to this, the "missing heat" isn't missing. It's in the ocean.

Mythravere, you reposted,

"Although the top half of the ocean continues to warm, the bottom half has not increased measurably in temperature in the last decade."

Good catch. This statement actually supports global warming.

"So whats the latest lie to attempt to scare people into handing over the energy sector?"

I told you that I nor any of the others have stated any kind of support for "taking" over the energy sector.

What do you keep making like we do? Are you that desperate for attention.

Posted 683 days ago.

mythravere

Also I never said that the deep oceans were absorbing heat. I specifically referenced a news item that you referenced.

"image shows heat radiating from the Pacific Ocean as imaged by the NASA’s Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System While the upper part of the world’s oceans continue to absorb heat from global warming"

" Although the top half of the ocean continues to warm, the bottom half has not increased measurably in temperature in the last decade."

Thats from what you copy pasted on here. That supports what I am saying. LOL!

You also fail to understand that science is a field that gets updated as new information comes along.

Its no wonder that Republicans/conservatives have such a problem with science.

Science isn't rigid and weighed down with an inflexible dogma.

Science can be tested and verified. If new information contradicts old information then the old is tossed out and the new vetted information is used to inform the scientific knowledge.

Which is totally unlike Republicans in that if information they put forth is found lacking in facts...well they just go on like nothing happened and deny they are wrong.

mythravere

Its not our problem that your political leanings cause you to gloss over the scientific facts and cherry pick information that only supports what you say.

Its becoming clear that the oceans are absorbing a lot of the heat. Heat that otherwise would be in the atmosphere. The natural phenomenon that is causing this could potentially last for another decade.

But to state that because the atmosphere isn't warming therefore there is no global warming while there are facts stating that the oceans are absorbing more heat than anticipated is being willfully ignorant.

Its also nothing more than a part of the gotcha game of political brinkmanship that you have been playing the whole time on here.
