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.

"That's the kind of scumbag we are dealing with"

No its not me or anyone else. Its the righties that are growing more and more extreme in their views.

You guys love to smear people. But of course you cry when that ticks someone off and they decide to throw some dirt back at you.

LOL! Only a rightwing jerk would cry and play the victim card when their intentional smearing of others results in backlash.

Hey Stillhere. I never did do it did I?

You know why I resorted to that?

Because you are unreasonable.

No one can reason with you. I could have politely asked you not to call me a socialist but you are one of those people who would smile at that and keep on calling me socialist out of spite.

"Just because you think I support socialist causes doesn't mean I do."

Yeah Myth...Stillwrong is going to refuse his social security check when he gets it. In fact, I bet he will vote for whomever will promise to get rid of that nasty bit of socialism. After all, there is no way Stillwrong would support taking money from the workers of today to pay for the disabled and elderly.

I know facts don't change liberals, but I still like to dump a few on them.

Keep up the good work, Stillhere.

Al Gore could become the world's first carbon billionaire

Last year his venture capital firm invested in a small company.

The company,is Silver Spring Networks,

The deal appeared to pay off in a big way last week, when the Energy Department announced $3.4 billion in smart grid grants, Of the total, more than $560 million went to utilities with which Silver Spring has contracts.

How do you like those apples, ohwiseone?

ABC News**** estimated Al Gore's net worth at $100 million, which isn't bad considering that he was supposedly worth about $1 million when he watched George W. Bush get sworn in as president in January 2001.

Talk about your get-rich-quick schemes, how'd you like to increase your net worth 10,000 percent in less than seven years?

" If you cannot explain the PAUSE you don't know the CAUSE "

That is priceless, Stillhere.

This global warming does not fit. lol

Ohwiseone is just like an old baby toy. You pull a string and it says the same nonsensical words over and over.

"Who makes money with the lies? Easy, easy, easy. The climate changers who are making movies and TV shows,writing books, selling stuff (even t shirts)."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!

Reeeeeeallllly?

LOL!

You say that while the little fact that those who run the campaigns and other forms of support for rightwing politicians and policies take your money and run with it. Which is provable by their very own tax forms. The vast majority of money they raise goes into expenses with less the 10% in a lot of cases going toward the actual cause.

Whats funny is that they know exactly what to say and what fears to coddle to get you to toss your money at them.

LOL!

Good interpretation,harryanderson.

Stillhere, I didn't say he had a "conservative political outlook." That was the Weekly Standard.

Posted 560 days ago.

You should answer your own ideotic question. No warning is going on. It is fraud and lies.

Who makes money with the lies? Easy, easy, easy. The climate changers who are making movies and TV shows,writing books, selling stuff (even t shirts).

The radical warmers who get enormous fees for speaking at colleges and money making tours. Lawyers like Bobby Kennedy Jr.The wacky college professors and pseudo scientists who get huge grants for fake studies and programs. The green businesses that rake in billions of our dollars before they go belly up..

And we can't forget the politcians who scare people to get elected and rich.

Second problem: Lindzen’s confident predictions that global warming will cause no harm. The Weekly Standard reports:

“Lindzen also disputes the accuracy of the computer models that climate scientists rely on to project future temperatures. He contends that they oversimplify the vast complexity of the Earth’s climate and, moreover, that it’s impossible to untangle man’s effect on the climate from natural variability.”

The climate IS complex, but here’s Lindzen’s problem: If it’s “impossible to untangle man’s effect on the climate from natural variability,” how can Lindzen predict that global warming will result in no harm?

Lindzen contradicts himself.

If predictions are impossible, why are Lindzen’s own predictions any better than the predictions of the majority of other climate scientists? Again, Lindzen behaves like those he criticizes.

First problem: The Weekly Standard shows Lindzen’s political bias.

“One frustrating feature of the climate debate is that people’s outlook on global warming usually correlates with their political views. So if a person wants low taxes and restrictions on abortion, he probably isn’t worried about climate change. And if a person supports gay marriage and raising the minimum wage, he most likely thinks the threat from global warming warrants costly public-policy remedies. And of course, even though Lindzen is an accomplished climate scientist, he has his own political outlook—a conservative one. “

So, while Lindzen accuses others of having a political agenda, he has one himself. He’s behaving like those he criticizes.

Dr. Lindzen is worthy of serious consideration. For example,

“Lindzen doesn’t deny that the climate has changed or that the planet has warmed. ‘We all agree that temperature has increased since 1800,’ he tells me. There’s a caveat, though: It’s increased by ‘a very small amount. We’re talking about tenths of a degree [Celsius]. We all agree that CO2 is a greenhouse gas. All other things kept equal, [there has been] some warming. As a result, there’s hardly anyone serious who says that man has no role. And in many ways, those have never been the questions. The questions have always been, as they ought to be in science, how much?’”

But I have two problems with Lindzen: I think he lets his political agenda color his thinking and I wonder about his predictions. In both of these areas, Lindzen behaves a lot like those whom he criticizes.

Ohwiseone can't post without his obsession with faux, whatever that is. Liberals are lost without the words faux, hate, Koch bros., racism and war on women. Lol Most people have never heard of the Koch bros. Soros is much more famous.

Oh and I hate to point this out again. Stillhere formerly known as Tiredofit it got banned on this site and the Marietta Times site.

It takes a certain amount of bitterness to post in a manner that gets you banned. Just sayin.
