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.

•The RSS satellite dataset shows no global warming at all for 213 months from August 1996 to April 2014. That is more than half the entire 423-month satellite record. •The fastest centennial warming rate was in Central England from 1663-1762, at 0.9 Cº per century – before the industrial revolution began. It cannot have been our fault. •The global warming trend since 1900 is equivalent to 0.8 Cº per century. This is well within natural variability and may not have much to do with us. •The fastest warming trend lasting ten years or more occurred over the 40 years from 1694-1733 in Central England. It was equivalent to 4.3 Cº per century. •Since 1950, when a human influence on global temperature first became theoretically possible, the global warming trend is equivalent to 1.2 Cº per century. •The fastest warming rate lasting ten years or more since 1950 occurred over the 33 years from 1974 to 2006. It was equivalent to 2.0 Cº per century.

You all call that weather, not climate, right?

What kind of instruments did they measure with in prehistoric times? Cartoon time, kids.

According to NASA, 2013 was tied with 2009 and 2006 for the seventh warmest year on record. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) ranks 2013 as the fourth warmest year on record, tying with 2003.

“In summary they both show that the ‘pause’ in global surface temperature that began in 1997, according to some estimates, continues,” wrote David Whitehouse, who holds a doctorate in astrophysics and was the BBC’s science editor. “Statistically speaking there has been no trend in global temperatures over this period.”

NASA data shows that the ‘pause’ in global warming continues

NASA Data: Global Warming Still on “Pause,” Sea Ice Hit Record

Posted 323 days ago.

NASA reports that September was the warmest on record, as was the last six months.

Whatever happened to the glaciers that used to cover North America? Did the cro-magnons burn too much coal in their factories, or did they drive big sports cars and melt the ice? I'm sure it had to be some kind of homo sapien activity.

maybe the dinosaurs breathed on the ice and melted it. NAh, it had to be some kind of human bad behavior. Like trying to survive.

The warming continues.

Stillhere posted on this forum four days ago that "the upper part of the world’s oceans continue to absorb heat from global warming."

Notice the word "continue."

www dot skepticalscience dot com/global-warming-scientific-c Some very interesting reading ! And the tiredbrain troll has no answer to this ! It just still doesn't know !

Yeah , there isn't any reason that the Arctic has lost about 70% of its total volume of sea ice over the past three decades. It's magic ! You brain dead right wingers are more apt to believe that !

Hmmmmm if co2 causes warming and co2 has increased there must be more warming, but wait....... There isn't, hmmm

Stillhere

Hmmmm if co2.causes global warming, why has there been ZERO WARMING IN 18 YEARS

Posted 323 days ago.

Ohwiseone

Like I said ~~~~And so as usual you will ignore the fact that the Arctic has lost about 70% of its total volume of sea ice over the past three decades. Well ai'nt that special !Inconvenient facts don't sit well with liars !

I am concerned with the total obstruction by your republicans ! If its so very bad then get them off their arses and get to work doing something , anything constructive !

Posted 323 days ago.

Stillhere

Might as well talk about that since there is no warming in 18 years to discuss

Too bad Romney cannot boast of the fine military careers of Obama, Clinton and Carter, lol

You must be talking about chicken hawk Romney, and his support of the Vietnam War, while secure in his conscientious objector status.Oh, that's right now, he is a republican.

Posted 323 days ago.

I am concerned with the adverse effects right now of obama and his like minded socialist leaning cronies. They have no resemblance to old time patriotic America loving democrats. Most West Virginians understand that. Go Capito.
