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.

Not sure imbecile is appropriate, what I see are two types of people. The first group embraces government think we need more and will willingly believe anything they are told. They cannot believe that governments are at best a.necessary evil and will run to them liberties in hand for security.

That would fit a definition of imbecile.............

To top all of this off what do I see?

Kendall and Harry offering honest points for consideration in this little debate we got on here.

Neither you nor Ithink will even engage those points and detail why they are right or wrong.

Instead the goal posts get moved.

Petty and pathetic is all I can say.

And goodness lol! You bring up the old MSNBC CNN vs Fox News argument.

Yep..a load of crap! And you know it.

But I understand. Its the one thing you have to use in an argument about who is "right" etc whatever.

Another thing to be considered when dealing with rightwing persons,organizations etc is this.

The tendency to flat out deny anything that you feel is a liberal cause.

Without any consideration of the facts!

So many on the right will deny everything and anything a liberal stands behind just because its a liberal bringing the subject up.

Its called being biased.

Facts just can't pass through the seething hatred rightwingers feel for people on the left.

Once a topic is labeled as a liberal cause...you people can not be be approached on the issue.

All that is heard after that point is no no no no no no no no! Thumbs in ears blah blah blah blah!

Pot calling kettle! Pot calling Kettle! LOL!

Tiredofit you are so off the mark its pathetic.

You know why I can dismiss sources cited by people like yourself?

Its all about the track record.

You see. Your sources have a nasty habit of trumping up lame as hades arguments trying to thwart what science says about our changing climate and mans hand in it.

Simple as that.

I do not see you providing any convincing arguments or evidence that you are right...not one shred!

Kendall leave Walker sometime and you might run into the Ten Commandments in some prominent places in DC. Other places too. They're very Biblical, don't you think?

@harry- don't forget the ones that have died. Kind of hard for those to defend their position.

"Normal American people are....They try to live by Biblical standards"

"Did I say anything about needing to be Christians, or something? No, I did not."

Nah..you are so correct. After all, Jews and Muslims live by Biblical standards every day. If by Biblical standards you ignore the New Testament and include the Koran. Love that you called me a bigot without a shred of evidence to prove it.

I’m having a few problems with this Oregon Project that those who find it credible should explain.

First, only 39 signers, by the project’s own admission, are educated in “climatology.”

ww w.petitionproject****/qualifications_of_signers.php

So one signer in every 807 has education in climate, according to the site itself.

How many of those 39 are currently studying climate change? We can’t tell, since the list of names at the side doesn’t say who has education in what field.

They don’t tell us who these 39 are, much less provide an opportunity to review their work. That’s too much hidden information for me.

Kendall, you seem to be a bigot. Of course J ews, Mormons and Muslims can be normal people. Did I say anything about needing to be Christians, or something? No, I did not. You just read what you want to read, whether it is there or not.

And what were you saying when he had a great approval rating? That the majority was correct then?

The masses are fickle, ignorant and cannot be trusted. The Founding Fathers knew this and that's why we are a Republic today instead of a Democracy.

@Tiredofit- What is your point? Having the most people agree or watch you means you are correct?

Under that kind of thinking, Obama must be correct because the majority of voters put him in office. Are you sure you want to go down that way of thinking?

"They live family centered lives and love their God and America."

Guess normal people are Muslims, Mormons, Jews and so many other groups of various faiths.

Honestly, you described probably what most American citizens look at themselves as, though I doubt you would include them in your definition of normalcy.

Are Muslim Americans normal? Are Gay/Lesbian Americans normal?

They follow the laws of the land and they work hard. I see absolutely nothing that wouldn't make them, and many others, "normal".

Posted 918 days ago.

Normal American people are thankful for what they have. They live family centered lives and love their God and America. They help those less fortunate than they are.They try to live by Biblical standards, but all of us fall short. They take reponslbility for their own actions and welfare. They live a life of honor and are good role models for their children.

So take it or leave it. My husband is very normal in my opinion, and I am truly lucky. His "normalcy" is reflected in our now grown up children.

Just because the "normal people" (whoever they are) doesn't get it doesn't mean the liberals are incorect.

Always remember, majority might rule but it doesn't mean they are right.

Though it is funny because technically their are no longer any majorities in the nation. At least not from a racial pov. European-Americans make up less than 50% of the population now. It's a Brave New World indeed.

Posted 918 days ago.

Nice try. Poor little liberals talking points turn off normal people. MSNBC and the other liberal sites repel family oriented people. They can't seem to learn that people don'r want to hear filthy trash or global warming lies. And those are their thing. No love for country, church, or their fellow man unless it is minorities to make themselves seem important.

Minorities are mportant just like everyone else. No more, and no less.

And what does the fact that liberal oriented shows not appealing to the masses have to dow ith ther veracity of their arguments?

I suggest one should read "The War Prayer" by Mark Twain and do a little study on certain oppositions getting drowned out by popular movements (such as the Nazi and Russian Communist Party) throughout history. Were those oppositions wrong just because they didn't garner a larger audience?

"Ever notice that liberals only believe their own set of lies instead of"...the conservatives unique set of lies?

One problem that both sides tend to have are those that use appeals to authority as arguments. Who cares if 1 million scientists sign a petition saying that global warming is or is not happening? If those people do not understand the subject matter it makes their opinion no more important than anyone else's opinion.

Those on here that say global warming and climate change is happening are however doing something that the opposition isn't doing much of an that is offering citable information.

Posted 918 days ago.

The hot earth and air posters here make me understand why the liberal talk radio shows are almost kaput for 2014. Mostly all that is left is NPR, and it is only still around because we are forced to pay for it.

Blathering repetition of the same old liberal hate and socialist viewpoint gets tiresome fast. Ever notice that liberals only believe their own set of lies instead of facts?Before you ask, the info about liberal shows being cancelled was on Drudge today.

"Scientific American took a random sample of 30 of the 1,400 signatories claiming to hold a Ph.D. in a climate-related science. Of the 26 we were able to identify in various databases, 11 said they still agreed with the petition—one was an active climate researcher, two others had relevant expertise, and eight signed based on an informal evaluation. Six said they would not sign the petition today, three did not remember any such petition, one had died, and five did not answer repeated messages. Crudely extrapolating, the petition supporters include a core of about 200 climate researchers‐a respectable number, though rather a small fraction of the climatological community."
