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.

Again, what it the margin of error in the data you cite Harry, LOL you always avoid that one.

The Steven Goddard piece says that in 1976, the outlier climatologists mentioned "(could) offer no scientific proof to back up their theories that the earth (was) cooling."

Now, in 2015, the few outlier climatologists who claim the earth isn't heating up can offer no scientific proof to back up their theories.

But, as I pointed out, the earth is warming, to wit:

1. The oceans are absorbing a lot of the excess heat.

2. Surface temperatures continue to rise. 2000-2010 is the hottest decade recorded, 13 of the warmest years have come in the last 15, 2014 was most likely the warmest ever, according to NASA, and “the long-time warming trend is unequivocal.”

I suggest the 2015 scientific studies I cited should carry more weight 1976 opinions backed up by no scientific studies.

Global warming has not stopped, as I pointed out. However, the rate of warming at the earth’s surface has slowed down, but it continues to rise.

That’s the surface. New 2015 studies suggest that over 90% of the heat from global warming is going in the ocean

(htt p://ww w.scpr.or g/news/2015/02/02/49566/world-s-oceans-steadily-heating-up-new-study-finds/),

and that “the forces behind the supposed hiatus are natural— and temporary — ocean processes that may already changing course.”

(*******e360.yale.edu/feature/how_long_can_oceans_continue_to_absorb_earths_excess_heat/2860/).

As to those who ask what the “correct” temperature is: “Most scientists concur that two degrees C of warming above the temperature during preindustrial time would harm all sectors of civilization—food, water, health, land, national security, energy and economic prosperity.”

You used to claim the rate of increase was proof that it wasn't a natural variation. What say you now when all the evidence points to a pause or plateau in warming?

Do you deny that we were once covered in thick ice sheets right here?

Just how will you know that you have fixed the problem you believe exists?

It's cute how ppl who mention the last 18 years never mention the climate reverting back to the way it was prior...

And when was that Kendall, the ICE AGE? Should we long for the days of 2 mile thick ICE over our heads?

A small city has a murder rate of one death per year. The next year it's two murders and the next year it is three murders. This increase keeps going for decades and then stops increasing and holds at 25 murders a year. 18 years later guy comes along and says there is no murder problem since there has been no further increase. Is he wise or stupid?

Have you forgotten your dishonest claim that 2104 was the hottest on record? First of all even if it was, there is no proven link to co2, Secondly when you look at the data and margin of error, it's greater than the supposed warming, sorry you fail to meet the bar of fact

Why no warming Harry has Co2 output ceased?

And no warming in 18 years, by the way what is the error margin in your data Harry
