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.

Once again, Tiredofit suppresses rational discussion. He demands “proof,” but won’t accept proof under the most common definition of it.

He defines proof two ways. He wrote, “Proof is a concept that is really only applicable in mathematics, because math deals with abstract concepts and definitions.” Under this definition, changes in land and sea temperature, disappearing ice at the poles, and the like aren’t evidence. These things can be observed. They aren’t abstract, so Tiredofit won’t accept them because they can be observed.

He also wrote, “To be proven, something needs to be demonstrable and repeatable.” According to this definition, rapidly rising temperatures over the last century don’t count because we can’t repeat the last century.

Tiredofit’s position is absurd.

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 All I advocate is there IS research that says man has and will have a role in climate change !

True or false Triedofit.

You will deny any and all facts/proof we provide even when they are truthful and accurate.

"We have no proof, you win ;)"

You forgot the all important smiley.

I was just seeing if you'd do a victory dance.

Lizden is a climatologist"

He's retired now though. So is his information up to date? I don't know.

But something you should know about him.

He acknowledges that the planet is warming. Unlike you.

Sorry my bad. The website didn't come through. Not that you need it anyways. A quick google and you'd have it. But anyways.

That came from The Guardian.

"Anti science denier. Counter climate. All terms you on the socialist left apply to those that question your religion of Algore."

This has nothing to do with debating the facts of this issue.

This is just you flinging mud.

Which is in reality the only angle you have.

We go through facts and it devolves into us vs them politics.

The Weekly Standard's Lindzen puff piece exemplifies the conservative media's climate failures The Weekly Standard suggests we should gamble our future on the climate scientist who's been the wrongest, longest

Also a good read.

LOL! I never called you a child molester. I only wanted to know if you would like for me to call you one in lieu of you calling me a socialist.

SEPTEMBER 18, 2014 11:48AM Reflections on Rapid Response to Unjustified Climate Alarm By RICHARD LINDZEN"

Of course its a good read for you Tiredofit.

Its authority that appeals to you.

Hey Tired you are a denier of the so called global warming hoax are you not? LOL!

If the glove fits.

"Explain how air has a surface???????? Lol"

WOW! If there isn't some degree of surface area to air then why does it push back on your hand when you stick your hand out the window of a moving car?

And you know there is a thing called surface temps in regards to the air temps near ground level of this planet.

Hey Tired. It was theorized about the ocean warming last year. The confirming discoveries were made this year.

LOL!

I didn't bother to read your article. You do that so much I don't even bother anymore.

Here's a thought. We've seen a decline in the number of hurricanes for awhile now. As everyone knows hurricanes feed off of warm ocean water. Now wind shear has a big influence on hurricane development. Too much and no go. Now if there aren't any hurricanes to pull that warmth out of the water and the Gulf Stream takes that warm water north its reasonable to say that the water up there is going to be warmer than normal.

That article was from 2013. The oceanic warming discovery was this year.
