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.

You say I ignore facts, so do you. Show me a prediction that can be proven to be a direct result of carbon

Oh yea I need to mention that the northern ice pack becoming less and less in the summer is allowing shipping routes to open up that weren't there ten years ago.

Also there is a push for increased energy exploration by all the countries with with a stake up there.

Couldn't do so much of that ten years ago.

Why is that?

Yep, so why is that proof of anything?

Convince me that me showing you facts is a worthwhile endeavour.

You'll have already shown that you will deny it all.

You know the polar north is still cold and when we have a slew of weather patterns bring that cold down here along with moisture from the south what do we get?

Bad winter! DEE DEE DEE!

“Good bye winter… In the northern hemisphere the deviations are much greater according to NOAA calculations, in some areas up to 5°C. That has consequences says DWD meteorologist Müller-Westermeier: When the snowline rises over large areas, the bare ground is warmed up even more by sunlight. This amplifies global warming. A process that is uncontrollable – and for this reason understandably arouses old childhood fears: First the snow disappears, and then winter.” Die Zeit, 16 Mar 2007

"Republicans are at fault for a portion of the debt as well, never denied that."

But you never lambast them the way you do democrats.

Myth are you googling to find a prediction that came true?

mythravere

Whats the point to showing you the predictions that are coming true?

You'll just deny it.

And I'll bet that because of what I just wrote you'll accuse me of not being able to prove that any have come true.

I might do it if I feel like it.

The fact is they make their home in the democratic party these days but there are a few in other parties

I rail against government in general not parties. The socialist left is an ideology not a party.

What predictions have came true and are proven to be be due to carbon?

"The debt is a matter of mathematics, I will forgive your ignorance."

I guess if we wanted to keep a lid on the debt we shouldn't have had a Republican administration take us into a ruinous war that hasn't accomplished anything.

They did get access to the oil they were after though.
