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.

No upward trend in 15 years myth swing and a miss.

What were the questions on the survey, who were selected to take it?

97% of scientists??? Care to elaborate on how many people that represents? What is the sample size?

I think this a good point to state that I feel your whole point in this little debate on here isn't based on disagreeing with the facts about climate change.

Its purely political in nature.

Rightwing marching orders went out and stated that to be a good little Conservative one has to resist this issue because...what else...socialism.

You are just standing in lockstep with your brethren!

Jesus Christ! Why is it so hard to understand that we have dumped a huge amount of a greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and that it's causing an upward trend in global temperatures?

No one can predict exactly the sea level rise or temperatures etc. But projections can be made from where temperatures were at in the past to where they are now and where they will be if the upward trend continues. The can model effects of this temperature increase too.

Also no natural phenomenon have been found to be the culprit of this.

At least I hope you would. Because what's the point in having the information that proves something is false and withholding that information?

Because that is essentially what you game is at this point.

You know the facts that have been stated about climate change are false but yet you refuse to lay your information out on the table.

WHAT IS THE POINT IN THAT?

I and the others have laid it all out why we believe the climatologists.

Since you take issue with that and you see fit to make comments about this issue the onus is upon you to state where we are getting it all wrong. The same for Tiredofit or anyone else.

Failure to do so is dang good way of making yourself look like a fool.

Each time we raise a point or show where you are wrong on one of your points and you do not counter it...and instead just sit back and say NO a freaking million times over....that shows your ignorance on the subject.

Its patently clear that if you had anything with which to counter what's been laid out about the truth of climate change....you would.

“I am not crazy enough to think I know the future temperature, water levels, ice thickness,etc of the earth. I'll leave that to the loons.”

I’ll leave it to the 97% of all climate scientists who agree that mankind’s activities are causing climate change.

Myth, you are nuts. You do the proving. I am not crazy enough to think I know the future temperature, water levels, ice thickness,etc of the earth. I'll leave that to the loons.

But then again..maybe the reason you don't provide any info is because if you're not saying anything then there is nothing to be criticised about?

Oh gosh lol!

I can but I need information. But you won't give me any.

Which begs a question.

If you aren't here to convince anyone of anything then why post about this issue at all?

Oh well thanks for the entertainment.

You and Tiredofit are just blowing wind.

One of those types of person who can never ever admit they are wrong.

Stay that course!

Where is your proof that I can't prove my assertions?

HAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH LOL!

OMG!

Posted 97 days ago.

mythravere

Ithink...lol...prove that I can't prove the claims that I am making!

Counter my claims with information that shows that I am wrong...and by extension the scientists are wrong.

HAHAHAHAH hilarious!

Posted 97 days ago.

There is no info about the future. Only guesses. Much info about the past cannot be proved.

You can say I murdered someone ten years ago and tbere is NO way I can prove I did not.

No one is obligated to disprove your wild claims. It is up to you to prove them, and you can't.

"I do find it odd that you three seem to think I owe you proof of anything."Tiredofit

Hey if you want to make yourself look like a fool by all means go ahead.

But when arguing an issue it is essential for both parties to be willing to lay down the facts of why they think they are right.

Unwillingness to do so just makes the person refusing to do so look like they don't know what they are talking about.

Of course we already knew that.

I mean if you had the info why wouldn't a person lay it out on the table for consideration?

It just goes to show that your angle Tiredofit isn't an informational one. Its all about the politics of resistance to the opposing party.

"I do find it odd that you three seem to think I owe you proof of anything."

When one makes a positive claim, oddly enough..most people expect you to back it up with evidnece.

"The fact is the burden of proof is on YOU"

And you have been provided with evidence of it happening.

"and you have failed to convince me that you even understand the supposed evidence you are touting,"

We could give the same evidence to a dung beetle and just because they do not understand it doesn't make it not factual. What is also humorous is that you shouldn't care if we understand it at all. All you should care about is if you understand it.

"I have stated many times that I believe any change in climate IS a natural event PERIOD."

And that is a positive claim that should be backed up with evidence.

"I have history on my side."

No you don't.

"I wanted you to see,again, that not all climate scientists agree with all the warming hysteria."

And I am glad that most scientists are not in that hysteria. It doesn't benefit anyone to be on the fringes when it involves a topic this big and important to humanity.

No Tiredofit,

You don't have to provide evidence for what you say...

...not unless you want to convince somebody, that is.
