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 may feel the topic is science but what you really mean is that the topic is science that you accept and nothing else. It's ok, you get confused quite easily.

You do realize that science changes right? To hold a person in 2014 to the standards and ideas of 1970 would be very silly. That would be like forcing a Christian to be a literalist just because a 100 years ago, the vast majority of them were.

I do use my real name...Kendall. I've always said that. Seems some angry children don't understand the simple things in life. So tragic.

Will you stop by Buffalo Wild Wings tonight around 10:30? I'll even buy you a drink before beating you at trivia.

I am offering you a chance to prove who I am to you. Will you expand the horizons of your knowledge with a simple enough test or will you hide with your head in the sand? I know you find it quite comfortable there, you seem to spend so much time in that place.

I never claimed once that Kendall78 was in fact my real name. Don't be an ignorant twit.

Not the 1970's and today's scientists and research has nothing to do with that stuff.

"deny the very existence of evolution"

Pitiful tactic, the topic is about global warming and not evolution.

Global warming is something that can be observed in real time. We can keep records of how it is going about. When one discusses evolution, you cannot do that.

I'm certain you have not seen 78 in anyone's name silly child. Have you seen "Kendall"....take your time...think about it. Let that brain of yours churn through the information.

"how would one know that what you say is the truth? there are MANY Kendalls here in the MOV. NO PROOF OFFERED"

Style of writing. Consistency of opinions. Things that won't make any sense to the likes of you.

But hey, if you have the time.****e on down to Buffalo Wild Wings in Vienna around 10:30 tonight and I'll meet you there. We can play some buzztime trivia.

That is..if you actually live around here.

"the most inconvenient truth of all is that it hasn’t gotten significantly warmer since the industrial revolution started generating CO2, and it hasn’t warmed at all in recent years."

You are so near sighted it's sad. Deniers...they are an odd bunch indeed.

"Kurt Schlichter..."

Sorry...not evidence, just more opinion. Another fail on your part Tired.

"you don't offer up your real name either"

And you are therefor incorrect again. Kendall is my last name. I've also written many letters to the editor using my name.

In the end, you don't use your real name because I gather you are a coward.

Just the other day, Tiredofit, I said I didn't think your bullying tactics reflect your true personality. And today you return to name-calling and, incredibly, try to bully me into leaving this forum!

I'm sorry, but I'm inclined to decline your invitation.

Kendall78

Tired why don't you contribute to the paper where you live and stop polluting our forum with you propaganda.

I can say this because there is no evidence that you are actually from this area. Now if you would feel free to offer up your real name...

Now when those who say that the global rise in temps are not do to man, they offer nothing to show that their side is correct.

I have seen no false premise on here. When Harry or others say that the overall temperature of the Earth is going up, they back it up with actual data.

When they say that CO2 is a green house gas, they back it up with science.

When the science says that global temps will go up, they have been largely correct.

Ithink, Which of these people are from Chicago and have taught Constitutional Law? Barack Obama or Jonathan Turley

The answer is both but why are you siding with Turley?

I will admit that Turley is consistent. He was against President Bush's warrantless domestic surveillance program and was in favor of Clinton's impeachment for his abuse of executive privilege.

@Ithink- What has the President done that is unlawful? If he had, obviously the other 2 branches of govt would have stepped in but have they?

Turley said, "I happen to agree with many of President Obama's policies, but in our system it is often as important how you do something as what you do."

So why isn't the other two branches doing something then if Obama is wrong?

"I intended to just ignore your post.."

It's always easy to ignore questions, it difficult to answer questions. You just keeping to that easy road.

Yea. Notice how Tiredofit always directs the discussion onto the funding angle.

Seems to be the only argument he has.

One thing about it. Its the type of topic that can be highly manipulated.

Its all heresay and blind assumptions.

Ithink,

I’ll explain this again, since you seem to have a hard time grasping it.

Climate is a series of weather events observed over a period of time, usually decades or centuries. Weather is one event.

Let’s try it this way: I once caught a Northern Pike at the mouth of Decker’s Creek, which, at the time, was a sickly acidic mine-waste carrot-looking orange. By no means did I consider the Monongahela a good place to catch Pike. I probably could have fished there from now until this day and never seen another.

Hopefully, this will clear up some of your obvious confusion.
