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 SHOULD push the KT Pipeline project over the goal line to completion. Obama, the Anti-fossil fuel President, was recently bragging about the cost of gasoline dropping, DESPITE his objections to domestic drilling. Meanwhile, oil prices have fallen in spite of his resistance to drilling on public lands by uptake from private properties. This increase in world oil capacity has been crimping Vladimir Putin's economy and making the flow of petro-dollars to supporters of Jihad all the less prolific.

With the fossil fuel possibilities available to the American people, Obama has been walking a line of domestic fuel policy that borderlines his either being a fool or a traitor. The people and economy of West Virginia have not been beneficiaries of his CO2 phobia (as reflected in the November election results, WA).

NASA reports:

"The year 2014 ranks as Earth’s warmest since 1880, according to two separate analyses by NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists. The 10 warmest years in the instrumental record, with the exception of 1998, have now occurred since 2000. This trend continues a long-term warming of the planet, according to an analysis of surface temperature measurements by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS) in New York."

Satellite measurements aren't direct temperature measurements. They're inferred from radiated wavelengths, and different groups have come to different conclusions in analyzing them.

NASA and NOAA use actual surface temperature measurements.

Scientists are working to reconcile the differences. We should support more funding for this.

Myth, you use opinion talk. There is never a fact in your opinions about the right. And your untrue beliefs couldn't be more wrong.

Fox News is a liberal rag?

I've seen this tactic before, stillhere. Ignore the message and attack the messenger.

Try this: "I fail to see where Barack Obama has suggested that people should hate the police. He has talked about how young black men distrust the police, and whether local police forces are overly militarized — and those who think he’s wrong should criticize him as strongly as they want"

The right is so far out there curled up in their own comfortable reality that anything that doesn't jive with that reality is considered evil etc.

I'll put it like this. Don't accuse me of putting distance between us when you are the one walking away from me.

And that is in regards to racial issues. And it is the same with political issues too. Don't complain about someone else being divisive when you are actively segregating yourself away from everyone else.

When a person or group chooses to let differences between themselves and others completely close off any chance of a positive relationship its nobody's fault but the person who lets the differences get in the way of that relationship.

And that is how the right approached Obama. He's different...he's not one of us therefore he must be bad.

And when you keep telling yourself that and you entertain every single crazy idea that reinforces what you believe you become segregated and set apart from the whole.

Thats why the right sees anything liberal as an existential threat.

Stillhere people on the right that complain that Obama is being divisive more often than not are actually the ones responsible for any feelings of division that they have in their own minds.

You might think Obama is intentionally driving a wedge between the people of this nation when in reality its you yourself thats allowing these feelings of separateness to come into your thoughts.

If anyone on the right feels that this nation is being divided it is they who are pulling themselves away from the rest of us.

And now the Washington Post fact-checker, Glenn Kessler, has weighed in on Rudy Guiliani's ridiculous statement.

Guiliani earned four "pinocchios," the most possible, reserved for "whoppers."

Stillhere I assume you are talking about Obama's support of the recent protests?

But I have to disagree on the left being intentionally divisive.

The right has done their fair share of taking divisive positions.

I'll put it this way. Its like being in a relationship with someone and deciding to terminate that relationship and then turning around and blaming the other person for walking away from the relationship.

In other words a lot of the divisiveness that Republicans assume is coming from the other side is in reality completely self inflicted.

Some on the right have been consumed with a seething hatred for Obama right from the get go.

You can't blame Obama when someone goes out of their way and hates the guy of their own accord.

"“This administration and it (sic) party have been purposely divisive in a cynical attempt to gain and retain power.”

That right there is something that both political parties do. They both coddle supporters and latch onto hot button issues that will get reelected.

Its a game they play. They know what their base wants and they deliver so that their base will deliver them another term in office.

Former NY Mayor Rudy Guiliani has earned the latest “Pants on Fire” from Politifact.

Mr. Guiliani told Fox News, “"We’ve had four months of propaganda, starting with the president, that everybody should hate the police."

According to Politifact, “Giuliani’s claim is an outlandish distortion of what Obama actually said.” The article lists Obama’s actual statements. Here are some:

htt p://ww w.politifact.c om/punditfact/statements/2014/dec/23/rudy-giuliani/giuliani-obama-propaganda-says-everybody-should-ha/

Furthermore, I find nothing in Obama’s words that justifies the extreme statements made here, like

“This administration and it (sic) party have been purposely divisive in a cynical attempt to gain and retain power.”

I know this IS off the subject of Climate Change (another wealth redistribution and people control program at best) but, remember when Obama committed to the proposal that, "This is not a Red America and a Blue America. This is not a White America and a Black America. This is the United States of America."

Well, he's been contradicting his own rhetoric, just a tad, ever since he uttered that observation.

H-ell, he's not even much of a "Community Organizer", unless we're only speaking of 13% of the American community.

Maybe obama has already bit off more than he can chew,Kunectdots and Stillhere.

Ever read the rants of Harry Belafonte, harry? Or Rev. Wright? Or Louis Farrakhan ? Or Sharpton, Jackson,etc? And the whining of racial "slights" claimed by the obamas and Holder?

To me it is a pleasure to help someone in a grocery store. To Queen obama, it is an insult.

The obamas had the opportunity to show blacks that we are all Americans. Not hyphenated victims. Instead, obama, Holder, and other prominent activists have stirred up racial problems that will be hard to heal.
