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.

The science IS politicized

Once again, you try to turn it into a political debate because, as Bast said, the "scientific debate is of enormous frustration."

I'm not interested in a political discussion. It's all about the science.

And if it's not political why site POLITIfact? Here's a hint, if they have Fact in the name, it's doesn't mean they stick to them

No, it hasn't been debunked. Not by a long shot.

As Politifact said, "Additionally, much of climate change deniers’ back-up evidence is cherry-picked or too simplistic to be meaningful."

A better way to say it is 97%of those that derive their living from government funding think the government should get more money for failed predictions

Sure is a good talking point but it's dishonest as he77

It’s all about the science, duh. And 97% of the most-published and most-cited scientists agree.

Still lying HARRY? That has been debunked multiple times

Climate science skeptics won’t support science because they know they can’t win that debate.

Like Heartland Institute head Joe Bast said with uncharacteristic candor: "We've won the public opinion debate, and we've won the political debate as well, but the scientific debate is a source of enormous frustration."

That explains why they always try to turn it into a political discussion. They can’t win any other way, and they can’t change their minds.

In a rational, truth-seeking debate, we would discuss the relative accuracy of different temperature measurement methods. Instead, they wish to distract us from the science and talk about “the money duh” or “Lemmings begging for more govt.”

It’s all about the science, duh. And 97% of the most-published and most-cited scientists agree.

thegreek - Yep! Rather than lowering our standards of living, through Obama's reduction of input of CO2 into the environment, why not do what we can to discourage nations that are destroying the planets rainforests (the lungs of the Earth) from doing so?

I'm of the mindset that Obama's desire to impose higher energy costs upon the American people and it's industrial base, is little more than HIS attempt to bring the US to heel. He's stated that he doesn't consider our nation as being "exceptional", wanted to credit the Arab cultures for the scientific innovations he thinks they have been denied by civilization and is just a general open port for floodwaters of un-American ideological debris from around the planet. I consider him a traitor to our (our children's) posterity and believe he lied at every front for the sole purpose of crafting absolute power...and abusing it.

It is no secret that a lot of climate-change research is subject to opinion, that climate models sometimes disagree even on the signs of the future changes (e.g. drier vs. wetter future climate). The problem is, only sensational exaggeration makes the kind of story that will get politicians' - and readers' - attention. So, yes, climate scientists might exaggerate, but in today's world, this is the only way to assure any political action and thus more federal financing to reduce the scientific uncertainty.

We SHOULD push the KT Pipeline project over the goal line to completion. Obama, the Anti-fossil fuel President, was recently bragging about the cost of gasoline dropping, DESPITE his objections to domestic drilling. Meanwhile, oil prices have fallen in spite of his resistance to drilling on public lands by uptake from private properties. This increase in world oil capacity has been crimping Vladimir Putin's economy and making the flow of petro-dollars to supporters of Jihad all the less prolific.

With the fossil fuel possibilities available to the American people, Obama has been walking a line of domestic fuel policy that borderlines his either being a fool or a traitor. The people and economy of West Virginia have not been beneficiaries of his CO2 phobia (as reflected in the November election results, WA).
