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.

Tiredofit. Do you old chap spray vinegar at chemtrails?

Because the excuses you put on the table for not believing this stuff is akin to doing just that.

Conversing with Tiredofit is like trying to talk sensibly with the chemtrail and 9-11 truther nuts.

There's no way to penetrate their circular logic.

They have what they believe and if anything contradicts it. They will find a way to discount the conflicting facts.

They see life through Funhouse Mirrors.

And what they see is filled with distortions .

"They reward those that develop theories that predict devastation by funding more and more of their research."

This is just Tiredofit's fear addled mind trying to justify not believing in something that contradicts something he believes.

So he invents a reason.

Well I think its becoming more clear by the post that Tiredofit can only see things in a certain light.

If what he sees doesn't jive with what he believes or he is told something that contradicts what he wants to believe he just discounts it. He then blindly attaches one of his asinine justifications to it so that he can discount it.

Those justifications are: 1.They're doing it for money. 2.Its a socialist plot. Its usually one of those two.

Ithink....is your strategy in all this, "When in doubt..bring up Al Gore"

Isn't that akin to the Far Left that says, "When in doubt..bring up Dubya Bush"?

One thing for sure, Rush and Fox News are more credible than you.

Posted 523 days ago.

Not "research". It's manipulating and manufacturing lies. Instead of Gore, et al, being right about the Arctic ice being gone, it is increasing. Silly guessers

"Cannot prove a negative."

I have never asked you to prove the negative...not once. You should try to make your lies more opaque.

Ohweirdone, do you only know about rich republiicans ? Take a look at Soros...the Kennedy family, Jay Rockefeller, Pelosi, Boxer, Reid,and a pack of other rich democrats.

And if they are not rich, they will be when they leave office. Like Clinton and Gore. Look for Bamy to be a millionaire, too. Going green means raking in green dollars for democrat politicians.

Ohweirdone, I change your name because you change names.

It would appear you don't have a bit...that I agree with. ;)

No proof, new fearmongering.

"He calls skeptics illogical yet he thinks women came from Adams rib?"

Tired, that is one of the worse pi** poor attempt at deflection I have ever seen on here and that means alot after seeing your daily rants.

"Big oil has found a way to profit by cooperation with the socialists."

Evidence or are you speculating again?

Exactly, myth. As I posted before, even Exxon and Shell now acknowledge that man is heating the planet.

Being rational, these former funders of climate science denialism know they must adapt to the best info available, which comes from 97% of the most-expert climate researchers.

The irrational, on the other hand...

"The GOVT does not give grants to those whos findings say its a natural cycle.."

Guess those scientists are not very convincing.

That is until like in the case of the biofuel alternatives being developed by the Navy are sidelined out of pure political vindictiveness.

Because why oh why should our navy be investing in alternative fuels when its all based on a hoax anyways?

So its clear. The navy got so far as to actually have an F/A-18 flying on on a 50/50 mix of biofuel.

I don't think its been totally sidelined fortunately. Although quite a few congressman pulled out their binkies and cried of few tears over it.

But an interesting aside to all of this is that quite a few big players in the energy industry that took issue with climate change no longer do so. The see it for the problem it is. And are investing in alternative energy sources or research into alternatives.

Also there is no questioning the issue when our very own military sees climate change as a potential threat to national security.

So while some people feel there is a "debate" on this issue others aren't letting their judgement be clouded the "questions" that surround this issue and are actively planning to deal with problems that it will bring us.

"It seems many of these scientists that are studying global warming are paid from grants from the government. The more you find the more money you make."

If profit was the singular motivation for scientific discovery then we'd find ourselves lacking in quite a few modern amenities.

But I must say if profit/funding is a concern then one must also question those who have taken issue with climate change.

A bunch of the various companies,groups and individuals that have taken issue with this topic also have a vested interest in industries that are threatened by the response to man made climate change.

So they use their deep pockets to fight the issue by casting doubt that people like tiredofit latch onto.

And that leads to the discussion on this issue being muddied up and politicized.

Oh and these entities I am talking about pretty much have a huge swath of conservative government officials in their pocket. And the puppets say what the puppeteer wants them to.

"The more you find the more money you make."

That's the kind of thinking that got the vaccination/autism conspiracy stuff going but one should get all the facts before jumping to conclusions.

If the scientists are fudging data for more grants, then it should be easy to prove. And of course it takes more than a few scientists to discredit an entire scientific premise.

It seems many of these scientists that are studying global warming are paid from grants from the government. The more you find the more money you make. It seems like when you hire consultants to come in. They always find changes for you to make, and then in a few years it is changed back to what you were doing in the first place.
