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.

“Was this a vow or were you just busy>?”

Both. I was busy, and I thought you stopped your name-calling ways. Maybe I underestimated the depth of your disdain.

So what do you do now? Do you keep trolling to keep me away?

I have the distinct feeling that "harryanderson" IS as Democratic as a Democrat CAN BE in Wood Co.

I see no thoughtful answers in your posts. I insults, but it doesn't take any thought to toss insults.

Now I hope you'll provide thoughtful answers to my questions, instead of your usual shotgun trolling to bury my posts.

“Did you celebrate OUR party victory in NOV Harry?”

The question isn’t relevant to the discussion, but I’ll address it anyways in the spirit of cooperaton.

Absolutely! We repudiated some candidates from the radical right, then won big in the general election. This should convince 2016 Republican presidential candidates that they don’t have to kowtow to the extremists. Also, it frees John Boehner from those whom John McKain called “wacko birds.”

So yes. When the power of extremists is diminished, I am always pleased. Maybe we Republicans can now elect a President.

“SO if we are NOT getting HONEST RESEARCH for our dollars, why put more into it?” It’s tragic that some government research goes for purely political purposes, like research used in Congressional investigations. Should we stop dishonest Congressional investigations? Yes, but I know not how. I desire honesty in government. But, to the point at hand, I know of no instances where climate scientists used government funding to produce dishonest research. Can you cite any examples where government dollars have provided dishonest research?

Now I’ll answer your questions. I’m not afraid.

“we exaggerate to prompt political action and gain funding, do you deny that”

I can’t deny that some have. I think we need better models, but nobody should engage in deceptive tactics. I believe in honesty. I notice your source didn’t provide any examples of funding obtained by deception. Do you know of any examples of funding obtained by deception?

Well, Stillhere, I never took a vow to stay away from here. I’ve just been too busy to play.

I see you didn’t answer my question, even though it followed logically from your post. Nevertheless, I’ll provide my answer. Yes, we need better models. If the models we’ve been using are accurate, it’ll cost us a lot of dough. Given the risks involved, we must have a good ability to predict future climate before we commit to a course. (Inaction is a course.)

So do you think we should reduce the scientific uncertainty and develop more reliable models?

Amen, Walt!

"Troll." "Dead end useful idiot."

No matter how long one stays away, when one returns, one will find Ohwiseone and Stillhere foiling rational discourse with their childish insults.

Clearly what I said wasn't too bad or the post would have been removed or I would have been kicked off of here.

Don't act like a victim. You kicked mud around until you got a reaction. Which is exactly what you were going for.

Better yet stop acting like the accusation was actually made against you. Because we both no it wasn't therefor no harm done.

Also I fully admit what I said was wrong.

"If you think that posting valid information is somehow worse than what you did, well again, very low character"

Hey I am not the one who got booted. Just saying.

Also I never did follow through with what I said.

But I must state that in regards to making a series of back to back short posts if its being done from a phone then I understand. But if that is being done to bury other peoples comments well that not in good form.

mythravere

Stillhere/tiredofit oh yes you did. If not then care to explain why you are posting under a different username now? And not just on this site but the Marietta Times site as well.

I mean what did you do to get your previous persona on here booted. I took it to be the massive amount of copy/pasted posts from other websites that you carpet bombed this very forum with.

If it wasn't that then what?

I myself have had my fair share of posts removed from this site and I even threatened to make an accusation against you....but I never got kicked off.

For you to have gotten booted...well it musta been bad.

Hey Kunect. Stillhere/tiredofit started the whole burying posts thing awhile back. When he was still posting under the Tiredofit name he posted craps loads of copy/pastes and crap loads of short posts one right after the other.

Ohwiseone is just responding in a similar fashion.

OWO needs help. A brain transplant might do it.

In other words, you're practicing your talents of obfuscation by employing much ado about nothing?

Well, it helps push the forum's comment count numbers up...but very little else.

NOTE TO THE FEW REMAINING READERS OF THESE FORUMS; In order to get to the latest pertinent information that might posted, you have to see through ohwiseone's game to bury such with his one-four word meaningless comments.

If The Parkersburg N&S is at all interested in preserving these forums, and impressing their value to potential advertisers, they should consider banning ohwiseone's tactic.

Now you are going to try and get me to explain it all again and each and every fact I lay out you summarily deny. Not because the facts may be wrong (which they aren't) but because its what is expected of you politically since this issue is seen as a liberal cause.

Sorry not going to play on your terms.

Heck all it will do is cause you to get banned agains because I know you are just itching to drown us in copy/pastes again.
