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.

In which way? Climate change deniers say the data gathered is wrong to suit their misguided beliefs.

In this case, the readings from hundreds of ships where commercial and military sailors are being trusted over buoys with no oversight.

Which do you trust....machines with no direct on site checks or hundreds of independent readings made by people?

If it turns out that the scientific equipment is in error, it will change quite a few assumptions about climate change.

You are a card. You really thought I didn't remember my own numerous posts?

Writing out false quotes do not equal information.

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

Yes and it's been provided. Kendall78

Why do you lie? When have I claimed CO2 is the cause? I guess we cannot trust the posts of a dishonest person

Was listening to a report on NPR and it may turn out that measuring buoys in the oceans have been wrong for a long time and been giving lower temps than what the actual temps are. If true, then the supposed 20 year "no rise" would be false.

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 !

Anyone suprised? When politicians or govt agencies suddenly addvocate global warming, it only means they have lined up thier investments to profit from bad policy

As a partner at Silicon Valley venture capital heavyweight Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers, Gore is poised to reap hundreds of millions from investments in the companies that will benefit from the government's increased emphasis on green technology. According to The New York Times's John Broder, Gore could become the world's first "carbon billionaire."

Earlier, I referenced a Fox News article about major oil companies calling for a carbon tax.

That same article explained why they're doing so. It said, "While that involves a cost for fossil-fuel companies, they said 'carbon pricing policy frameworks' will help provide a roadmap for energy companies and investors."

The oil companies know there's a problem, and that the longer we refuse to address the problem, the more disruption it will cause.

Disruption is their worst enemy, so they're seeking a roadmap, or stability. They figure they can live with a carbon tax easier than they can live with the consequences of inaction.

Action is inevtable. These oil companies, being rational actors like the Dept. of Defense, call for action that doesn't destroy their investments in infrastructure and natural resources.
