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.

"Was not addressing you Jimmy, pay attention."

Learn to quote and do citations properly then. Any high schooler could do that, so I have hope you might be able to do it as well.

Its a fact the you Tiredofit. No matter what facts are sent your way. No matter how concisely the case is laid out.

You just can not admit its real.

And its all because of the political aspect of this issue.

Its you versus the lefties isn't it?

"The latest propaganda stunt from the Skeptical Science Kidz is underway and it is about as exciting as it is predictable. Every hour, a new opinion is revealed along with a cartoon climate scientist caricature drawn by former cartoonist turned “climate expert” John Cook."

So with this I must assume that you didn't bother to see whats being said but rather decided to appeal to your chosen authority?

If all you read is what the skeptics say then how are you getting the whole story?

I expected this much.

I didn't post anything about 97% of anything. Pay attention.

(From the BBC) "Concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere between 2012 and 2013 grew at their fastest rate since 1984."

"The WMO's annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin doesn't measure emissions from power station smokestacks but instead records how much of the warming gases remain in the atmosphere after the complex interactions that take place between the air, the land and the oceans."

""The climate system is not linear, it is not straightforward. It is not necessarily reflected in the temperature in the atmosphere, but if you look at the temperature profile in the ocean, the heat is going in the oceans," said Oksana Tarasova, chief of the atmospheric research division at the WMO."

Just wanted to put something a little more relevant to the topic than unions in Canada.

OH MY FREAKING GOODNESS! LOL! What a boon for you Tiredofit.

Google "97 Hours of Consensus"

97 scientists are give 97 reasons why climate change is real over 97 hours.

You wanted proof? There you go. Straight from the scientists themselves.

Now everyone watch as he fumbles around and rejects what they have to say.

By "full cost," I mean all the costs not currently reflected in the purchase price.

For example, if your activities cause someone to suffer breathing problems, should you be held liable?

"Do you agree that those that profit from the sale of fossil fuel should be held responsible?"

Yes, but I do have a couple of observations.

First, we all profit from the sale of fossil fuels. If we drive to work, or even take a bus, we're profiting. Shoot, we're even profiting if we bike to work on a road paid for with fuel taxes.

Second, I believe people should hold themselves responsible to avoid "be(ing) held responsible."

You mean the question about profits? What was that again?

Also, you haven't answered my question, which only requires a simple yes or no. That's ok, though. It shows how we are different.

One of mine? I wouldn't call someone an idiot. That's your style, not mine.

Ohw - you seem to contribute a lot to this conversation. Can you give me some examples of incorrect statments by Fox?

Yes, Ithink. Oil has lots so uses. I think future generations will find more wonderful uses for it, and we should save a generous supply for them.

That's why I think it's too valuable to burn up by driving into Spencer for a Big Mac.

Posted 519 days ago.

Show me where you found the definition of Faux= Fox. Your mind is not a reference resource for us readers.

Why shouldn't the oil companies make a profit? When you lefties get them all put out of business, where will you get all the multitude of products that are made mainly from by products of oil?

That includes medical devices, medicine, telephones, cars, and dozens of other things we use daily.

Plastic is necessary in this world we live in today.

Ohweirdone, you keep asking stupid stuff. Speak English. Faux is a French word that has no meaning as you use it. I'm sure Tiredofit has heard the wind blow before.

Do you agree that fossil fuel users should pay all the costs associated with using it?

But again I will ask a question that relies on your opinion....what would you consider to be "proof" in this argument?

You won't accept academic findings, govt findings or even business findings. You won't believe personal research on here either.

So what would you consider to be proof?

Tired, are you even able to answer a simple yes or no question with a "yes" or "no"?

I ask because Harry and many other try to bring down the question to your intellectual level but you still go way off tangent.
