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.

Lesson of the day Tired....use quotation marks. Otherwise you seem a bit erratic.

"You are so deluded you thing I am.."

Also I would recommend you pause and take your time in writing. Otherwise you kind of sound like a caveman.

You keep blabbering about not having proof. I find this odd since there has been alot of evidence sufficient to establish it to be true. Even from your own ramblings.

You have shown that the past 17 years have been hotter than the previous 17. Thank you for that.

You have shown that land temps have not changed dramatically and thanks to you being so specific in saying land temps, you have shown us that oceanic temps have risen. Thanks again.

You say CO2 isn't a greenhouse gas but then blatantly refuse to show it to be an inert gas incapable of being a greenhouse gas. Therefor the obvious conclusion is to go with existing data and agree that yes...it is a greenhouse gas. Thanks again.

Being a denier that offers no information just strenghtens the very position you want to tear down. Don't you get that?

"I GUESS YOU DONT UNDERSTAND POKER EITHER."

Actually I understand it quite well. I am playing the game while you are just a heckler in the stands who wished they had the capital to play the game.

You see Tired, to play this game you have to be willing to offer information and citation. You don't do this and think you prove something by telling others they are wrong with no good reason.

Many logical questions are asked of you and you refuse to asnwer them. I don't know why. Maybe you are afraid. Maybe you don't know. But since you do not offer anything to back up your assertions, you are not playing the game...you are just a heckler.

"because you have nothing and cannot admit it."

Are you saying that I never cited any of my information before? You should try to make your lies more opaque.

"Cannot prove a negative."

I agree, that's why I never asked you to prove one.

I never said once that the govt needs more power.

Why do you lie so much?

Time for dinner...have fun with those citations you are going to post. :D

Posted 531 days ago.

Kendall78

I will tell you what....I will again cite my information when you do.

That seems fair right?

Posted 531 days ago.

Kendall78

Actually you have shown nothing, that's your problem. And you seem to have a short term memory issue too.

Look back through the many many pages and you will see where I cite information many many time.

You will also see where you never cite information many many timesbut still make claims.

Remember, calling a bluff implies you have a better hand or more chips. You have neither. ;)

"show me the data"

Why? You won't accept it. You already have said that many times in many different ways.

Is that why you don't give proof because even you don't believe it?

"NO more proof than any other warming or cooling cycle were man made"

Except that this warming trend does not fall into the historical norms. The only different factor is the industrialization of society brought by mankind.

Again, if you have another provable possibility...show us your proof and we will consider it. Otherwise, why are you wasting your time?

"I don't have to prove they are not, cannot prove a negative"

I have never once EVER asked you to prove a negative. I have many times to prove your unsaid assertion that something else is causing the current climate change. You have not done that.

I also asked you to show that CO2 doesn't have the properties of a "greenhouse gas" but that it has the properties of a safe gas. You have not. I don't think you can.

"That's why you are losing the argument."

What argument am I losing? I back up my assertions with research and cite that information.

You....don't.

"but that IS NOT PROOF"

So the rise in temperatures during the last 100 years is not proof?

Curious, what would you consider proof? Don't deflect...answer the question because I think everyone would be interested in knowing what you consider to be proof.

"SO KENDALL IS MORE..."

Ignoring the childish screaming, I never once said I was more intelligent than her. But facts have very little to do with her comment now doesn't it?

No where in her comment does she state that she can prove that scientists exgaggerate. Also, in no way does her comments show that mankind does not effect climate change.

So Tired, you are still left without any evidence supporting your position. Back to square 1 with you.

"So, yes, climate scientists might exaggerate"

See that word "might". Some similiar words are: perhaps or imaginably.

So just because they "might" does not mean they do. You have to prove that they (the entire global warming community) exaggerate. Good luck.

"that quote"

What quote are you dithering about now? I was commenting on your own insane babblings.

What you don't like are the facts when they don't go with your belief.

Fact, the past 17 years are hotter than the previous 17.

Fact, the oceans have been getting warmer in the last 2 decades.

No amount of posturing or deflection changes that Tired.

"It is no secret that a lot of climate-change research is subject to opinion.."

No it's not a matter of opinion. You are more then welcome to give your uneducated opinion on what you think it means but that's why it's an opinion; you don't understand it and are guessing.

"no warming in 17 years."

That's actually a lie. There has been a rise in warming in the oceans.

Also, the land temps have been hotter these last 17 years than the previous 17 years.

"predicted the Arctic would be ice-free this summer."

Congrats...you shown that a single man was incorrect in a prediction.

But how does this counteract everything that we know and have seen in regards to Climate Change? Oh yeah...it doesn't.

You do realize that just because a prediction didn't pan out, that doesn't mean it's proof against the theory itself right?

I mean, a person could "predict" that humanity will evolve into a being with a IQ of 1,000 in 200 years. If that didn't happen, would that mean evolution isn't true?

"I know I am right lol"

Except when you are wrong..lol.
