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.

Convenient? Years of putting up with believers in a hiatus isn't convenient.

If you want to talk about me so much, how about you start a forum on that to satisfy your obsession.

Read the article and then you'll know. I can't keep spoonfeeding you this all day.

According to the report (if you read it you would know this) the previous measurements from buoys were giving an erroneous idea of a hiatus. Revised measurements show that warming has never stopped.

Focus, what is the problem with trying to get the most precise readings when doing science?

"so there is no sense in finding a quote"

And yet, you do find quotes. Hmm, are you confused again?

Back on topic which is climate change and not you and me. What problem is there with trying to get the most precise readings that a person can get?

"But I do appreciate that you have admitted there has been a HIATUS in warming.."

Perhaps you could back that up by giving a direct quote where I said that and not quoting another. I bet you can't and thanks to that little trap I laid last week, I know you can go back to look ;)

I take it you are attempting to avoid real discussion about the topic by trying to make this about you and I? Nope..not going to work.

If you are against the use of buoys, sailors and whatnot to measure temperature...how do you propose that people find out what's going on with the world?

That reading comprehension still giving you problems eh? Don't cherry pick the quote. Read the whole quote and the research if you are capable.

What problem do you have with the scientific method? Scientists are trying to get the best data they can to make an assessment of the situation.

Why are you against logic, science and rational thought?

I call my faith Christian. And I call science... Science.

Try it out sometime, you might like it.

You have issues with reading comprehension don't you?

"Our new analysis suggests that the apparent hiatus may have been largely the result of limitations in past datasets, and that the rate of warming over the first 15 years of this century has, in fact, been as fast or faster than that seen over the last half of the 20th century." (Thomas R. Karl, L.H.D., Director, NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information)

"Hmmm so you neatly lump everyone who isnt sold on your religion a denier huh?"

I have no religion. I have a faith and that is in Christianity.

If one denies something is happening and doesn't give a logical and scientific alternative....yep, denier fits them pretty well.

"Skepticism is no agenda"

Never said it was your agenda. Try not to guess.

The deniers complained about readings being taken rooftops and near asphalt, while ignoring all the other measurements.

In the case of the buoys, they want ships to also confirm the readings.

So you see, you are in error. They are not wanting to take one over another but to come to a consensus.

You have an agenda and try to tell (not show) us how things are.
