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.

“This analysis shows that 13 of the warmest years have occurred in the past 15 years. Alternately, one could say that 12 of the warmest years came in the last 13.”

The decade from 2000-2010 was the warmest on record.

Climate researchers look to longer term trends to determine warming, as there is too much natural variability within any given year. And that long-term trend is unequivocal (see NASA chart below): The world has now gone 30 consecutive years — 360 straight months — where every month has been above the 20th century average, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.”

A complete, non-cherry-picked look at the data shows clearly warming hasn’t stopped.

They cherry-pick 1998 as their starting point.

Those who accept the conclusions of almost every climate scientist don’t have to cherry-pick their data, but if they did:

“It would be just as easy, however, to pick out much cooler years as a starting point to show a sharp increase in temperatures. Starting one year earlier or later — at 1997 (0.46 degrees above the 20th century average) or 1999 (0.41 degrees) — would yield between one-fifth and one-quarter of a degree of warming. This would represent as much as 31 percent of all warming the world has seen since 1880, when record keeping began.

“Choosing 1997 or 1999 as a starting point, however, would be just as misleading as choosing 1998.”

“Now the fact is the average weather is not warning ergo the climate isn't either.”

That statement isn’t true.

“(Rep. Lamar Smith) mentioned an oft-repeated claim that there has been a ‘lack of global warming over the past 15 years.’ Though the rate of warming has slowed, the world does indeed continue to warm, and cherry-picked data underlie the claims that warming has stopped.”

Rush and Hannity are idiots on this topic. On their radio shows they can't even tell the difference between weather and climate.

5) Predictions about the impact of global warming have already been proven wrong: The debate over global warming has been going on long enough that we've had time to see whether some of the predictions people made about it have panned out in the real world.
