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.

" The never ending parade of controversies and conspiracies" show up because NO Plan Obama and his bigoted and blind administration create them.

Our country and the world are in terrible danger because of his blunders. You won't have to worry about the temperature and tides. You wnd all of us will be burned to a crisp.

You want to talk about wealthy politicians,Myth? Check out the recent disclosure of Jay Rockefeller'S finances.

He comes "home" to WVa about 11 times a year. He flies on a private chartered plane and bills us, the taxpayers, for it. Look up the huge amount. As wealthy as he is, he is cheap.

Have any of Palin's expenses come out of your pocket?

Going back to Fox News. Some of the talking heads on that show say some mean and vile things.

How could someone act in such ways.

Oh I know. Its all about the money. Or should I say funding.

Although I will say this. I do like Shepard Smith. He's a good guy in my opinion.

Heck I even like Glenn Beck these days.

But then again. Appealing to the rightwing mindset is an industry in of itself.

You people dont realize that a big chunk of those who say they have your best interests in mind really only have what's in your wallet in mind.

They make the appeal to your sensibilities and then you just fling your hard earned money at them and they make bank on it.

Dont believe me? Look up financial disclosures of Tea Party groups and people like Sarah Palin who appeal to your sensibilities.

Look at how much money they bring in. Look at how much money is used for "expenses". Then look at how much is actually going to support conservative causes and candidates.

Some of these people and groups are keeping 75 to 90 some percent of the money they bring in. The rest goes to helping with the causes and candidates that are dear to you and yours.

Its not hard to find out what Fox is focusing on. They have a tendency to create "news" by their own hand if you will.

Besides. Pretty much all of rightwing news outlets operate in the Fox manner.

We know what's being focused on because the never ending parade of controversies and conspiracies shows up on places like this site here.

Ithink. People like you and Tiredofit wouldn't have the opinions that you do if you didn't consume "news" that is pretty much identical to the opinions you express on here.

Rightwing news does a pretty good job of making a big deal out of things and then fanning the flames even hotter.

How do you know what "Faux" focuses on? You must have to watch it to get real news, too, don't you, ohweirdone?

"any person of reasonable intelligence would know i don't endorse those views"

HAHAHA...it took you enough time to come up with that lie Tired. So basically you are saying you are a liar. That's the type of person that says something as fact but don't mean it.

Oh you are a card Tired.

Posted 533 days ago.

Speak for yourself braintired ohweirdone. Actually we readers are pretty smart. We knew better than to vote for the incompetent socialist. And we won't be following you trying to escape a myth. Silly climate change crazies.

I would like to thank you again Tired for supporting the fact that man has damaged the Ozone Layer and therefor effects how the Earth absorbs heat.

It's so nice you believe in man made global warming.

" Surveys show no one gives a crap and that's a good sign."

Yep..not giving a crap about something important. Guess you guys have a lot in common with Obama after all. ;)

"What does that say about your faith?"

I have no faith in science.

Why do you lie and make up stuff about people you don't know?

Posted 533 days ago.

Kendall78

It's been shown but you are too lazy to go back and look at it.

Keep showing your true colors Tired.

Oh and again, thank you for showing that man does effect the Ozone Layer and therefor does effect global warming.

"Its not for me to prove man DOESNT cause global warming"

I never asked you to prove man doesn't do anything. You have proven that man does effect global warming thanks to your whole ozone commentary though. Thanks ;)

"its up to you to make the case"

You already shown that man effects global warming by showing that man effects the Ozone Layer that controls how the Earth absorbs heat. Lol.

What I have asked you to do is to prove what you do believe in, that something other than man is causing global warming.

It's easy for you to say what's not doing it but you seem like a bit of an imbecile when you won't say what is causing it.

Yeah Tired...everyone can see that you offer up no facts. It's part of who you are.

"when they are using 50 to 100 years of data."

Curious how many years of data one needs to make a scientific statement?

Does this mean that no scientific fact is really a fact to you since there isn't thousands of years of data gathering?

"where did the mile thick glaciers across Ohio go?"

What glaciers? Are you using a paltry 50 to 100 years of data to come to a conclusion Tired?

"I have read it all."

Liar. Not an insult or name calling but a fact.

I find it strange that they can call this scientific fact when they are using 50 to 100 years of data. What percentage is that if you take into consideration the earth is approx 4.54 billion years old?

And please don't cower away from reading the proof...it's all right there for you. ;)

Tired, I refer you to the past 200 pages of comments of this thread. You will find all the citation you ever need.

Heck, you have seen them already multiple times. Perhaps you will actually read them this time.

Of course you could try the novel approach of proving your position with concrete evidence.

Tiredofit you are completely biased against this issue.

The facts don't really matter. Its the political aspect of it that is the deciding factor for you that forms the opinion you put forth on here.

Mans role in climate change is looked at as being a Democrat/left wing issue. You are strictly aligned against anything Democratic and or leftwing. Therefor being that the climate change issue is viewed by you as coming from the left...you say its all a hoax etc ad nauseum.

Nothing can be proven to someone who's mind is already made up.
