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.

Tired, does CO2 effect how atmosphere retains heat?

Yes or No

Don't deflect and show your cowardice, answer the question.

Meanwhile, back in the present--

--evidence of a warming planet grows.

"A giant portion of an Antarctic ice sheet appears to be on an 'unstoppable' decline, new research released Monday (today) showed, which could lift sea levels faster than previously forecast.

"Melting around the West Antarctic Ice Sheet has been occurring for decades, and has sped up in the past 10 years, according to satellite data of the Amundsen Sea Embayment, which contains enough ice to lift global sea levels by about 1.2 meters, or nearly four feet."

Thank you, Tiredofit, for the trip down memory lane. The term "mental midgets" reminds my of my grade-school days on the Park School playground (now occupied by a Wendy's and a CVS).

My last post was a little rough on you, Tiredofit. Sorry for the offense.

You have no credibility on this issue, Tiredofit. Here's why.

The two main dimensions of credibility are competence and character.

A competent person should be able to answer the simple question Kendall has asked.

A person of high character, one who we may consider honest, seeks to reveal truth, not to express the hate inside him.

And your abusive language doesn't change that fact one bit. Nor does it seem to have any effect on the self-esteem of anybody here.

It does do one thing. It shows your character.

And that's the idea behind global warming. CO2, when added to the atmosphere, retains heat. The experiment shows this to be true.

All your talk about infrared radiation is a smokescreen. CO2 is a greenhouse gas, and the experiment demonstrates it. The thermometers show it. I don't see why it matters whether the gasses were heated by their molecules jiggling, as in a microwave over, or whether they were heated by contact with the glass. The point is they were heated, and the gas with more CO2 was heated more.

Tiredofit,

Once again. You say the infrared rays won't heat the gasses inside by causing their molecules to jiggle because they won't pass through the glass. So why does bombarding the glass container cause the temperature of the gasses inside to rise? Maybe the infrared rays heat the glass, and the gasses inside are heated by convection.

Our thermometers show that the gasses inside heat up, and the gas with more CO2 heats up more and stays warm longer.

Tired said, "infared wont penetrate glass"

He was shown to be wrong by the very blog he got his info from and of course his natural response is to insult.

Tired, I never claimed that near infared could do anything except that it could go through glass. I am sorry you got confused and thought something else.

For crying out loud he won't answer.

He's just like that lady who is the head of the federal drug task force or whatever when asked if pot is as dangerous as other harder drugs.

She refused to answer because doing so honestly would compromise her position.

"Do you care to debate this point?"

I did...I defeated you by citing from the exact blog you got your info from.

Don't be a hater Tired just because the simple art of literacy won out over your skills in ignorance.
