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.

Trolls like the tiredbrain troll still don't like inconvenient facts ! Heres what you've been asking for but don't want to address !!! research that is not funded by our government ! ~~~~The dependence on fossil fuel energy sources since the industrial revolution has undoubtedly shaped economic prosperity for the developed world. However, an unfortunate by-product of fossil fuel combustion is the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), an important greenhouse gas that is known to influence long-term climatic variations through its ability to absorb infra-red radiation.

Human emissions of CO2 have resulted in atmospheric levels higher than any period over the last 20 million years. The continued emission of CO2 will lead to widespread climate change related impacts. ~~Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) UNSW Australia, Sydney NSW 2052 Australia Notice they say "will lead to widespread climate change ", not maybe , not some, but will !

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?

Why do you lie? When have I claimed CO2 is the cause?

Kendall78

"DO YOU HAVE PROOF that CO2 produced by man is warming the planet?"

Yes and it's been provided.

Remember this little GEM from while back

Never said it was your agenda. Try not to guess

Do try to keep your story straight Jimmy, I do grow tired of making you look silly

"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.
