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.

George Will had a good opinion piece on the subject.

Conservative columnist George Will says global warming is just another way for liberals to get what liberals want: more government power.

"Global warming is socialism by the back door," Will told The Daily Caller. "I mean, the whole point of global warming is it is a rationalization for progressives to do what progressives want to do, which is concentrate more and more power in Washington, more and more Washington power in the executive branch, more and more executive branch power in independent czars and agencies, to micromanage the lives of the American people."

And folks that is the real story here, create the crisis offer the solution, which is always control. Notice how the problem is always somewhere else? Somewhere you cannot see? The record cold here is to be discounted as "over there" it getting warmner. Ever question that? you should

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

I'd said you'd post angry, irrelevant things to bury my post.

And right on cue, you deflect to the ozone layer.

Like I said, these interactions are useful.

If they ever actually convince us that the crisis is real, there will be a never ending series claims that we are making progess but more must be given up.

I’m not sure I agree with Schultz’s proposed solutions. I prefer the conservationist and personal responsibility approach. We should conserve resources for those who come behind us and assume responsibility for our actions that reduce others’ standard of living.

That being said, I agree with Schultz that, if we fail to act, we’ll be “mugged by reality.” And when that happens, big, intrusive, government steps in to exploit the crisis. That’s when our freedoms erode.

We should all conserve. Turn down thermostats. Walk, bike, or use shared transportation when possible. If we each act responsibly in his or her own sphere of influence, together we can make a huge impact. If we all sacrifice just a few of our present luxuries, we’ll leave better gift to those who follow us. It’s the right thing to do.

It reminds one of the OZONE HOLE of he 80s, what happened to that?

It's still a problem. As of a few weeks ago, the "hole"—which isn't so much a gap in the ozone layer as an area of seasonal thinning—is even bigger than it was at the height of the ozone panic in the 1980s

Once again, stillhere, you show how completely you have lost the debate and have no options left but to suggest something is wrong with me.

That's why these little exchanges are useful. It shows that the anti-global warmers have no real argument.

I'd say your next tactic will be to post a lot of angry, irrelevant stuff to bury my post.

The real beauty is, it will NEVER EVER END. There is no endgame with the Climate mongers. They cannot tell you HOW they will ever know they have slain this invisible and imaginary beast they will just keep buying swords to swing wildly all the while profiting from the fear they have manufactured

The socialist left wants yet another tax one for a crisis that does NOT exist. Ahhh its a perfect scam, get business (those that wish to profit) on board and pump out the scare tactics.

In an op-ed this morning, another conservative, George Schultz, who was Reagan’s Sec. of State, has proposed action on global warming.

After listing some of the strong scientific evidence, Schultz writes, “These are simple and clear observations, so I conclude that the globe is warming and that carbon dioxide has something to do with that fact. Those who say otherwise will wind up being mugged by reality.”

He proposes research into energy development and a carbon tax, and suggests Reagan, his old boss, might have done something similar.

From where did you copy and paste the first two of your last three posts?

Why won't attribute your sources?
