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.

I never used the term correct or incorrect in relationship to climate.

"2 mile thick ice sheets"

Is that what happened during the mini ice age you mentioned?

Trolls like the tiredbrain troll still don't like inconvenient facts ! Heres what you've been asking for but don't want to address !!! research that is not funded by our government ! ~~~~The dependence on fossil fuel energy sources since the industrial revolution has undoubtedly shaped economic prosperity for the developed world. However, an unfortunate by-product of fossil fuel combustion is the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), an important greenhouse gas that is known to influence long-term climatic variations through its ability to absorb infra-red radiation.

Human emissions of CO2 have resulted in atmospheric levels higher than any period over the last 20 million years. The continued emission of CO2 will lead to widespread climate change related impacts. ~~Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) UNSW Australia, Sydney NSW 2052 Australia Notice they say "will lead to widespread climate change ", not maybe , not some, but will !

Basic knowledge of history? How's that proof of anything?

Think 2 mile thick ice sheets over your house

Define what you mean by "Ice Age" please.

"How do you know there was no interference?"

Basic knowledge in history. If you think there could have been, please explain.

"And how do you know there is some now?"

Information and common sense. Heck, some of the info you've cited or supported said that humans are interfering.

"What mechanism warmed the earth out of the last mini ice age?"

Is it the same mechanism that is warming it now?

What mechanism warmed the earth out of the last mini ice age?

Posted 64 days ago.

Stillhere

How do you know there was no interference? And how do you know there is some now?

Posted 64 days ago.

Kendall78

Yes and if all previous climate changes had no interference from an animal species of the planet, then one can say what is going on now is unprecedented.

Don't you agree that one cannot call any warming period "unprecidented" until they understand what preceded it?

Kendall78

You do realize that the Ice Age lasted for thousands of years right?

Kendall78

You are the one that wanted to bring up the Ice Age.

If you wish to "begin by condensing a 10,000-13,000 year period of time down to something manageable for discussion here." Feel free since it was your suggestion, will wait patiently for you to do so;)

And yes I repeated myself ;). Great time for a lagging post

Posted 65 days ago.

Stillhere

repeating yourself? Sure sign ;)

Let's just take our consensus that there is "nothing wrong with the climate". And call it a victory. Have a great day and thanks
