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.

"Slowest tornado season on record"

Weather is not Climate. Another fail Tired.

"No global warming for 17 years"

Incorrect, global warming continues. Ignoring the Oceans and the fact that the globe is hotter than it was 20, 50 or 100 years ago is rather closed minded.

"Second slowest fire season on record"

This has nothing really to do with climate. Now if you might compare long term drought..then you might have something.

"Four of the five snowiest northern hemisphere winters have occurred since 2000"

Which shows that climate change is happening. Thanks for the help with that.

"Coldest summer on record at the North Pole"

The North Pole isn't the whole Earth. Fail

"Highest August Arctic ice extent since 2006"

Ice amounts does not disprove that the Globe is warming. Fail

"Record high August Antarctic ice extent"

Antartica is not the whole world. Ice amount does not eliminate the fact that the Earth is warmer now than 20 years ago.

"No major hurricane strikes for eight years"

Weather and Climate are not the same thing. I believe the deniers love to point that out when it serves their needs.

Kendall, where is the heat and where are the hurricanes?

17 years of no increase in temperature. Facts, kendall, facts. Go play golf with your lefty comrade, your political rantings are way off track.

"Obama is worse than anyone could imagine."

Nope...people's imagination about how bad it is trumps reality.

Hope you're right about the liberals,Tiredofit. They are doing big damage right now. Obama is worse than anyone could imagine.

CO2 has been tested and it does capture the wavelength that associated with warming.

Fact.

If you disagree, please do an experiment to show that it is like...well...whatever gas you think doesn't absorb heat.

Good luck.

"VOTE in NOV and end this attempt to take over the energy sector of this country by the BIG GOVT socialists."

And there it is....you are just a denier because it serves your political agenda Tired. You hypocrite.

You'll ignore the facts just to move your petty politics along.

Tired, you can appeal to authority all you wish, you can rely on propaganda and hyperbolic nonsense but when the day is done, YOU HAVE ZERO PROOF.

"As the climate COOLS or stays Level"

1. It's not cooling.

2. If you think the status quo is a good thing then you are delusional.

If the murder rate of Parkersburg went up 10% every year for 2 decades and then just leveled off...would you say that is a good thing? I doubt you would.

So if the Earth is avergaing at a hotter rate than is did 2, 3, 5 or 10 decades ago...why do you think it's all ok?

"There is NO testable or provable facts that show CO2 is causing the climate to warm"

Actually, CO2 is a greenhouse gas that has been shown to retain solar energy.

If you disagree, you may go about and show that CO2 has no effect on the climate.

"NO WARMING IN 17 plus YEARS FACT"

Past 17 years hotter than the 17 before..FACT.

Actually, the Ocean temps have risen but for some reason that fact is ignored by people like you.

I'm not talking about predictions of climate scientists or those without a college degree in anything.

I'm talking about testable and measureable facts of the here and now.

Posted 619 days ago.

They are not facts, they are illusions. Situations in the future are predictions, not facts.

"about made up claims about"

So the facts mean nothing to you? You'll just dismiss them as made up because it doesn't fit in what you want to believe?

Posted 619 days ago.

The worthless debate has been over for a long time to me.

We may be blown to smithereens in the near future because of obama foreign policy dumbness. And we are supposed to worry about made up claims about the climate's eternally changing temperature in the far distant future?

Read the news and find out we have real problems and no leader to help wih them.

Very good Tired...you understand what "Bandwagon" means.

You are such a good little reader...oh yes you are. Good boy.

And this disproves that man effects the global climate how?

If your intent was to show bandwagon mentality, might I suggest you research how deniers use the bandwagon style. They tend to use people's ignorance as a catalyst to get their bandwagon moving.

Coal was on the decline before this push to reduce emissions was even thought of.

Know why?

There is only so much of it that can be mined. Simple as that.

Imagine the shock and outrage these war on coal acolytes would have had when one of the coal industry's biggest customers moved in mass away from coal use had they been around when it happened.

That industry would have been the railroads. Faced with an all around easier to use and more economical fuel the railroads abandoned steam power very quickly. Not all steam engines were powered by coal. Some were oil fired. And the maintenance on a steam locomotive was far more intensive.

But market forces caused the movement away from steam power for locomotives.

Market forces will also cause the movement away from coal to cheaper and more economical gas or even nuclear. Its happening right now.
