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.

We needn't panic over this debate. As we move forward, we'll be reducing our use of fossil fuels. Even 2/3 of those who classify themselves as Republicans or Republican-leaning independents agree that we should, so that's almost certain to happen.

Global warming isn't the number one reason why Republicans feel this way, however. 48% list reducing dependence on foreign oil as the top reason. The second most-listed reason for reducing our use of fossil fuels was to "save resources for our children and grandchildren." And that's exactly the response one should expect from conservatives.

I'd say the only people getting desperate about this are those who profit from fossil fuels.

Here's the point: Even those for whom global warming isn't an important issue favor reducing our use of fossil fuels, and they have very good reasons for doing so.

Tiredofit do you have proof that the warming of this planet is strictly caused by natural phenomenon?

And its in the previous pages on these forums.

You want it there it is. Go read through for that info.

I myself will not mention those facts until you show the facts that make you right.

If you are right then there has to be facts that back you up. But you won't mention them.

All I am going to do is sit back and watch you make a fool of yourself.

We've laid that proof out many times before as I have SAID MANY TIMES BEFORE.

That proof of ours that we laid out IS what we believe.

Its the same facts that you rejoice in repeatedly rejecting and denying and/or ignoring.

I think most researchers do their work because they think that they may make a difference and have some scruples ! Not all could be as republisized like , oh lets say Bob McDonnell, a perfect example of a fine upstanding Christian republicanism ! !

"Thats why this forum is up to 222 pages of posts as of right now."

Actually, it would probably be less than 50 pages but the other 150+ pages is Tired being in denial.

" You want to fundamentaly change our entire energy sector"

You think that climate change is the only reason why people might want to change how we create and consume energy?

You're that little twit of a mouse that never left to find new cheese aren't you? Lol, who would ever thought I could use that boring book for a reference in this?

So if any one here needs to man up it is you. I mean why would you not be willing to show people the truth if you do indeed have the facts that support that truth?

One of two things it could be. You don't have anything to back up what you say and you are hiding behind your own silence. Or you are just stirring the pot with your posts.

That also shows that we harbour no fear of talking about the issue.

Its just that we are sick of your ********.

I'll say again. YOU DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE FACTS.

I'll also say again that you can't allow us to be right..so you reject and deny everything we say.

And I'll say again that you will not defend your own positions by showing the facts that support your positions.

Because we cant very well scrutinize those facts if you don't mention them.

Tiredofit have we went into detail about why we believe man is having an effect on the climate.

Yes or NO.

Saying no will mean you are lying.

Because we have went into detail a multitude of times.

Thats why this forum is up to 222 pages of posts as of right now.
