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.

"A peer reviewed admission that “global surface temperatures did not rise between 1998 and 2008?"

Yes but why do you ignore that those years averaged higher than the ten years before.

And Tired...why the odd numbers? Why 1998-2008? Why not 1990-2000 or 2000-2010?

"No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world."

What comes in between "phony" and "climate" Tired? Please provide the full quote if you are able but I bet you won't because you can't.

"NO warming this century and you guys still hang on to the LIE"

Which 14 years averaged a higher global temperature Tired?

1900-1914 or 2000-2014?

You should have no problem with this, you only have 2 choices.

"Environment: The United Nations on Friday released its climate change report, which says that scientists are 95% sure that man is causing Earth to warm. Well, we're 100% sure this finding deserves a heaping dose of ridicule."

Tired, how much ridicule does the 5% that don't think global warming is manmade deserves? Surely they deserve even more yes? Maybe a huge heaping dose?

After looking at all the twitter sized comments from Tired, it appears he knows he is incorrect in his assumptions again.

That and his childish insults he peppers about here. Not to mention he has some delusions over his standings here at the forum. I am afraid Tired no one needs your permission to post ;)

I don't care if you continue to call me names. I base my self-worth on my relationship with God, not with you.

You should care, however, since your words reveal your character.

As Jesus said, "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks."

And you may call me names if you like. It was you who said you were "done with childish insults."

As for me, I can't remember posting any childish insults on here. At least not knowingly.

I'm smart enough to realize we're all on the same team.

Well, Tiredofit. I again apologize for using the terms "anti-science" and "denier," even though I only used it in reference to tactics, and not people.

I just never imagined anyone would be so thin-skinned as to keep bringing it up, even after multiple apologies.

"Ever notice the anger when it all comes unraveled"

Yes, you start treating the comment board like a twitter page when you are being shown to be incorrect in your assumptions.

Reasonable suggestions are offered to you about citation of information and how you could present your point better or even how you are wrong. But you go into denial mode and get all frustrated.

Again you revert to your default tactic--the childish insult you recently said you were "done with."

"Didn't see you chide your little buddy."

I don't remember him being a hypocrite like you. You said you were done with childish insults but continue to say them. Are you trying to make him behave in a manner that you won't? Bad form dear fellow.

"Anyway you are going with what scientists THINK now despite your reliance on peer reviewed lies."

Hmm, you have yet to show that any of the peer reviewed articles offered by Harry or others had any lies in them. Keep trying if you think you are correct.

"Never said it did Kendall,"

It was in your post. Take responsibility for what you copy/paste or quit doing it.

Also, if you have a point to make...it is up to you to provide the evidence and not tell others to just read an article.

Try using your copy/paste powers and cite some information in a proper manner. It would do you some good.

"You guys don't have a thing to prove your religion of global warming hysteria."

Statements like that have poisoned this debate.

I didn't pay much attention to global warming until I encountered folks like you who make these statements and call people who disagree with them names like Marxists, hoaxes, frauds, leftists, and the like.

So I started investigating, and I found the preponderance of scientific evidence is against you.

Just look at the emotionally-charged language you use. You who recently said you were "done with childish insults."

Tiredofit,

Please read the articles. They admit the surface temperatures aren't warming, and show where the heat may be going.

Posted 674 days ago.

harryanderson

I certainly hope Curry and others, like Lubos Motl, who doubt the ocean will warm enough to cause problems, are correct.

Motl wrote, "So I think that the ocean heat data are pretty cool, convincing, and show a rather uniformly increasing total heat. But the same data also seem to imply that the climate sensitivity is well below one Celsius degree per CO2 doubling."

Climate scientists think the super El Niño of 1997-1998 pumped a lot of heat out of the Pacific. The colder water is absorbing much more heat. Most scientists claim the heat will re-emerge. A few, like Judith Curry, admit the oceans are absorbing a lot of heat but question whether it will cause future problems.

For a good clear discussion of this see

Right, Kendall. The US is a fraction of the world's land mass, and is not representative of the world.

Climate scientists have been looking for the missing heat. They focused in on three things, the sun's variability, reflective aerosols from Chinese industrialization, and the ocean.

Current thinking is that the Equatorial Pacific may be responsible for absorbing as much as 90% of the excess heat, which may explain why land surface temperatures have risen but little.

And yes I did not read those posts you posted.

Now take issue with me doing that like a good widdle boy.

Oh wait you probably shouldn't since you are guilty of the same.

Tiredofit you are the tip of a feminine cleaning tool made by Massengill.

Breitbart London!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you serious?

You whine like a baby missing its mothers teat about leftwing media bias then you offer that up.

Oh god now I know you're just trolling.

Couldn't really be that stupid.

But then again.
