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.

Do you really consider the opinion of a journalist to be portrayed and accepted as the opinion of an educated and accredited, field tester scholar of a scientific discipline,ithink? .Coleman, first of all was a "weatherman", with a degree in journalism.He wasn't published.He served with the Weather Channel for ONE year,only.He was a businessman,who could could do weather segments for TV.And his denouncement of GW/CG was totally political,not scientifically factual in any way. And,Happer.Well he is a physicist, but optics is his area of expertise.And he basically said that excessive co2 was a good thing for this planet. And, all of this on Tea Party stationary.

Anyway, you can continue your political-agenda discussion without me for a while. It's time to play basketball.

I agree that the politicians and greenies like to portray catastrophe. I am in neither group.

Since I belong to neither group, I'm more focused on Lindzen's scientific opinions, and whether those are shared by his peers, than his political opinions.

That's why I don't respond to the obsession you and Ithink have with my politics. For me, it's a scientific discussion, not a political agenda.

All very true, Stillhere.

The article about Coleman is out new today. I know he has been discussed before. He says no warming in over 18 years.

Good talking to you. Gonna take a break.

Well, Stillhere, I see you refuse to ackowledge the contradictions in your own statements.

At least Dr. Lindzen, unlike you, acknowledges some of the major mistakes he's made. The NYT reported:

"Dr. Lindzen acknowledged that the 2009 paper contained 'some stupid mistakes' in his handling of the satellite data. 'It was just embarrassing,' he said in an interview. 'The technical details of satellite measurements are really sort of grotesque.'”

Stillhere, you seem ignorant of.basic attribution principles, so I wonder if your info came from the research that Dr. Lindzen said contains "embarrassing" "stupid mistakes."

The Canadians are having a little excitement today. Our time will come. Before G W gets us.

You mean he will keep on trying to scare us with his wisdom about the sky falling? Oh shoot.

I feel so sorry for poor harry. It has to be soooo upsetting that his fellow republicans say his pet theory is a lie. I am sure he values the opinions of his fellow republicans and is hurt by this. lol

It's over, Stillhere. The warmers should stop embarrassing themselves and slink back in to their hole.

"Climate-change-is-a-lie-global-warming-not-real-claims-weather-channel-founder

Climate change PROVED to be 'nothing but a lie', claims top meteorologist THE debate about climate change is finished - because it has been categorically proved NOT to exist, one of the world's leading meteorologists has claimed"

Posted 645 days ago.

"John Coleman, who co-founded the Weather Channel, shocked academics by insisting the theory of man-made climate change was no longer scientifically credible.

Instead, what 'little evidence' there is for rising global temperatures points to a 'natural phenomenon' within a developing eco-system.

In an open letter attacking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, he wrote: "The ocean is not rising significantly.

"The polar ice is increasing, not melting away. Polar Bears are increasing in number.

"Heat waves have actually diminished, not increased. There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms (in fact storms are diminishing).

"I have studied this topic seriously for years. It has become a political and environment agenda item, but the science is not valid."

It's amazing, Stillhere, that you avoid your own posts. So are you now saying that global warming ISN'T heating the top ocean?

Are you disavowing your former statement that global warming CONTINUES to heat the ocean?

Stillhere, you wrote, "ccording to Professor John Christy, director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama/Huntsville, October 1 marked the 18th anniversary of no warming as measured by Earth’s climate satellite system."

The fact satellites haven't shown warming doesn't mean there has been no warming. After, you yourself posted that global warming continues to warm the upper ocean.

what do you say about that?

Socialism always hurts the average ciitizen and creates wealthy and cruel leaders who are dictators in reality. Free enteprise gives us all a chance to prosper and have a good life .

I give a big thank you to the framers of our constitution.

Just like he promised, obama plans to transform this nation into his own ideology and cultural majority. After the election he plans to flood this country with immigrants who have no interest in being America loving citizens. What a disaster he has been and we will live with the effects forever.

"As for capitalism, I say this, it is the FREE state of man unlike socialism, so that being said the pursuit of happiness would require capitalism, not big govt socialism" Stillhere.

You do realize that capitalism in its unregulated state is a form of survival of the fittest?

Capitalism left unchecked and to its own designs is as much of a destructive beast as socialism.

Literally if something doesn't make business sense then its not done. A consumer,employee heck nation is at the whim of those who run the corporations.

And the shear amount of regulation on business bears out that corporations can not be trusted to do what is right. They do what is right for themselves which has in the past lead to huge injustices being committed on people.

No better an example is the Cuyahoga River.

The persons and companies that polluted that river had a choice. And you can see where that lead.

Stillhere said "MOD its right after the separation of church and state."

Posted 18 hours ago Are those your words?

I don't say there was that specific arrangement of those words,but it is clear what the role of congress is in this matter.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ..."
