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.

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.

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.

Hey Stillhere you do know that this" Hasn't warmed in 18 years ." is talking about atmospheric warming right?

You do know(but will deny)that scientists have found increased heat in the upper layers of the ocean?

Ha! God LOL! I knew you was gonna trot out the Fox thing. Whew! This is hilarious.

I told you that I found enough evidence to point that ol Roger Ailes had at the very least given direction to people as to what needed to done so that Canada could have their own propaganda news outlet.

LOL! All you have to do is to look at what they wanted to change in the law. Its so Foxy in its nature lol!

"Political Heat: What Climate Change is Really About"

"So let me get this straight,

Cooling is warming Warming is warming Drought is warming Rain is warming Hurricanes are warming Lack of hurricane is warming So far so good?"

Its really sad that you just can't wrap your head around how a warming planet will affect all facets of the climate/weather.

LOL! Someone states that global warming may lead to more severe winter storms...lol...I bet your head just spins!

How can that be you think? Never mind the facts that show that although the polar areas may be warming they still are cold. Never mind that weather patterns might shift uncharacteristically during the season and cause say the jet stream to dive farther south than normal bring cold air into contact with an atmosphere whose water content has increased because of an increased amount of evaporation because of a warmer atmosphere.

Nah never mind all of that.

ITS A FRAUD....lalalalalalalala!

Hey I'd be willing to listen to someone other than you take a crack at showing that the world isn't warming up.

The reason why your opinion will not suffice comes down to you letting your political ideology inform you rather than the facts.

Of course you will chortle 'what facts'. But its been spelled out so much for you so many times it ain't even funny.

But I and the others figured out your game a long time ago. Ask for proof..deny proof...claim none was given.

No one told us global warming would be white and deep. More fraud.

Thatsabsurd

I'm in my 2nd week of Globewarmers school. Its darn tough acting as stupid as they want us to be. Next week they teach how to lie, cover up our lies and lie some more. We have to do this with a look as if we are edumacted and smart. The week after that they teach us how to fold our tin-foil hats and when were done we get our graduation pictures taken wearing them.

They said be careful after they dumb down we may walk smack into a glass door but that's not the worst part....they say we will back up and walk right back into it.

"He is a very prominent skeptic and surely one would have to entertain his thoughts before making up ones mind that the sciences is settled."

First, I never said the "science is settled." I'm convinced it isn't.

Second, I have entertained Dr. Ball's thoughts, thanks to you, and I've found them unconvincing for the reasons previously listed.

“Its a place to argue, and to post dueling links that are dismissed out of hand.”

I don’t see it as a place to discount others’ ideas. I don’t dismiss your links “out of hand.” I look. (When you post links, that is; it’s often hard to tell which words are yours and which words you’ve copied and pasted.)

I check. That’s how I discovered Dr. Ball acknowledges not being knowledgeable enough in physics to challenge greenhouse gas theory. You pointed me in that direction.

As far as. Ball being “very prominent,” he isn’t prominent in current scientific circles. In his curriculum vitae on his website, he states that his last “significant publication” was 30 years ago, in 1984.

ht tp://drtimball.co m/_files/dr-tim-ball-CV.pdf

Here again, I wouldn’t have known this had you not pointed me to it.

So while Dr. Ball is prominent at the Heartland Institute, on Glenn Beck, and Coast to Coast AM radio, he’s not significant in scientific circles.

Stillhere, I thank you for your newfound courtesy, which makes debate more pleasant.

I never consider seeking truth a “game.”

I concede that Dr. Ball is a climatologist. I also take back my statement that he’s a “geography teacher.” While that’s literally true, it’s misleading, and I should have researched it more before I posted. Very careless of me. He was a professor of climatology in the Dept. of Geography.

So yes, Dr. Ball is one climatologist who denies global warming is a greenhouse gas. His specialty seems to be in the historical record rather than the physics.

Still, I’m not swayed by his disavowal of CO2 as a greenhouse gas for two reasons.

1. Among a great many climatologists, even skeptical ones, he’s apparently alone in his disavowal.

2. He admits to an “inadequate understanding of physics to openly challenge” the theory that CO2 is a greenhouse gas.

So have a good w/e.

Tired- it can be determined what species of plant life existed at specific points in time. And a good weekend it will be.
