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 all can choose to believe the money snatching enviro wackoes, but I prefer to believe those who are not getting rich from goofy ideas fed to gullible wannabe scientists.

I know it is not as exciting as the sky is falling, but try using a little common sense if you want to seem credible.

Kendall, don't worry about my knowledge of the difference between the USA and the world. I'll put my college geography grades up beside yours ANYTIME.

But they are supposed to understand science better than those who believe the scientists are right about Global Warming.

LOL!

@Harry- some people have an issue with that don't they? They think that the US is the world.

Ithink,

I see where you've been led astray--you said in one of the ten coldest years in US history.

But it's called GLOBAL, not US, climate change.

The US, which takes up .019% of the earth’s surface, can hardly be considered representative of global weather.

Ithink,

NOAA says 2013 has been the 4th warmest year on record.

I don’t know where you’re getting your information, but it conflicts with NOAA’s preliminary report for the year, which covers the period from Jan.-Nov., 2013. NOAA expects to release the full report Jan. 14.

The prelim states:

“The combined global land and ocean average surface temperature for the year-to-date (January–November) was 0.62°C (1.12°F) above the 20th century average of 14.0°C (57.2°F), tying with 2002 as the fourth warmest such period on record.”

But let’s keep this in perspective. One year of warmer weather doesn’t make a trend.

2013 also finishes 17 years of no global warming. I like it a little warmer myself.

"2013 will finish as one of the 10 coldest years in US history."

Part of the earth's natural climate change.

I don't see you citing the survey and you are the one that brought it up. My questions are hardly of the gotcha type. They are pretty simple and maybe that was the problem you have with them.

Posted 952 days ago.

Hunting straws, Kendall? Lol You couldn't even find a source for the survey.

What I am not finding is the evidence for this statement, "Government $400,000 study shows tea partiers are higher in scientific understanding."

Higher than who? In what type of scientific understanding?

Posted 952 days ago.

harryanderson

Exactly, and that title shows that you lied. The title refers to "an anti-science campaign," not anti-science individuals.

Now I am going to sit back and chortle as Ithink and her ilk strut about like they got a chip on their shoulder.

heheheheheheheheheheh!!!!!!!

All that study proves is that the positions on science that the Tea Party types hold are born from the guidance issued forth by their corporate handlers.

If they comprehend science so well then why do they reject its findings so readily.

I've said it before and this shows it full well that facts mean nothing to them.

Tiredofit

You’re not telling the truth when you say I’ve called people anti-science. You know that’s not the truth because we’ve been over this ground before. I challenged you to show where I called any INDIVIDUAL anti-science, as opposed to STATEMENTS and CAMPAIGNS. You couldn’t name a single instance.

And now you repeat your falsehood. You’re using a classic technique of liars: repeat the lie over and over, and hope people will believe it

It is not at all hard to find, Kendall. Greta and Meghan Kelly both gave details last night. Both are reputable lawyers. Here you are.Bing has other choices, I did not try google.

Didn't find any reputable study to back your claim. Could you please give a proper citation.

Posted 952 days ago.

Government $400,000 study shows tea partiers are higher in scientific understanding. They sure got fooled. Don't watch for this news on your alphabet soup channels. Either google or look at Fox.

Posted 953 days ago.

Kendall78

Sort off the topic but is there some unspoken rule that you either have to accept everything science says or absolutely none of it?

“Oh Kendall take a hard look at the UN and IPCC see what they have to gain.”

I did take a hard look at the IPCC. It claims “It reviews and assesses the most recent scientific, technical and socio-economic information produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of climate change.”

I believe that’s what they have to gain—to assess the latest data and provide a knowledge base for policymakers of all political persuasions.

I’ve seen no credible evidence that the IPCC was set up to rob us of our freedoms, as some folks have suggested.
