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.

If our heads are not cut off, this administration will allow the ebola disease to invade us.

And what are our leaders planning to do? ? Why, they are planning to fight climate change. God help us all.

Ohwiseone,

The Department of Defense has decided to duck the harm headed this way.

"Climate change will affect the Department of Defense's ability to defend the Nation and poses immediate risks to U.S. national security. The Department is responding to climate change in two ways: adaptation, or efforts to plan for the changes that are occurring or expected to occur; and mitigation, or efforts that reduce greenhouse gas emissions."

I tried to make sense out of that last post. Impossible.

A dangerous gang moves to the Mid-Ohio Valley. The murder rate goes up 15% every year for a decade. Then the murder rate levels off for a few years and the mayor comes out and says that there is no problem with murder in the area because it leveled out.

Would you buy into that way of thinking? I doubt you would. You would probably want to fix the problem so the murder rate goes back to the way it was prior to the increase.

I read all the opposition has to say and find it lacking in many things. Mostly they are lacking in facts to support their positions.

Just saying in essence, "Nuh-uh", isn't an argument. To say there have been no global warming is to ignore all the evidence that there is. If they would be specific in their statement then I would have a little respect for them.

It's funny because if you read their stuff, you would think that the Earth went back to a more cool period of time but that's not true at all.

Troll, troll, troll. Lol

Is a troll a nut? If so, a troll is a climate changer. Hey, change this rain to sun, super man.

So in not so many words you are a troll. And by posting on here we give you a return on your investment.

Maybe all of the rest of us should stop posting?

Would you like that Tiredofit/stillhere?

I think that would upset you and make you curl up in your security blanket and suckle your thumb while weeping that we has hurts it!

LOL!

Literally all you do is talk down to people Stillhere/Tiredofit.

And you love to put words in other peoples mouths.

Like stating that we actually want the government to take over the energy industry...even after people tell you they don't support that at all. And then repeating that ad nauseum. Right along with bleating that we haven't provided on single piece of proof.

Which is funny because even if we did(and we have)you just deny it.

I means its all good and well if you are actually wanting to participate in a nice discussion.

Oh but thats not what you are on here for. Nope you are on here to castigate others for your own enjoyment plain and simple.

You care more about being argumentative than about the actual issue.

My guess is that you lead a pathetic life and this is all you have for entertainment in your retirement. I could be wrong. But I am just saying.

"You are just plain WRONG and you are too invested to admit it."

I'm invested? Reeeeeallly? LOL!

Ummm. No.

You on the other hand seem to be heavily invested in posting on here. I mean you got kicked off and chose a new username that just screams 'hey look at me'. And you enjoy insulting people not just on here but also at the Marietta Times. Which you also got kicked off of.

Your investing in all of this was also well demonstrated by you posting reams of copied articles off of other websites and then pasting them on here while no one was arguing with you.

So yea pot calling kettle.

Such an intelligent vocabulary. Troll, troll, troll. Faux, faux faux.

Why don't you discuss 18 years of no warming, ohweirdone? Or the weak huricane years? Or the very rich climate baloney sellers?

mythravere

There's no POINT when discussing things with you are rather trying to discuss things with you.

You are dead set against this issue because of political reasons....not the facts. The facts are meaningless to you. All you are focused on is swatting down what you perceive to be a socialist cause.

"Did you have to wear a helmet in math class just curious"

You know I knew a boy who had to wear a helmet because he had downs syndrome and would occasionally have seizures.

I guess in your social sphere its ok to make fun of people with disabilities.

No surprise that you are showing yourself to be an even bigger P OS than what I already though.

Good job sport!

Oh and to make it clear. CO2 is making is it so that the earth is carrying more heat. The CO2 heats the atmosphere and due to various forms of mixing with the water that is in the oceans the heat that is in the atmosphere ends up in the oceans.

Posted 485 days ago.

mythravere

The atmosphere affects the oceans and in turn the oceans affect the atmosphere. There are several methods by which this happens. All of which I doubt you even care to be told about since you're going to deny it anyways.

mythravere

"So how is CO2 in the atmosphere ONLY heating the water>>>???? that makes NO SENSE"

There's this called heat transfer. And also you might not know this but there isn't any kind of barrier between the atmosphere and the water.

StillTiredofit........they actually touch. :| LOL!

For three hours, Shawn Panhandlety browsed in Scud Fudd’s hardware store. He ended up at the fastener department and selected a box of ¼-20 bolts an inch and a half long. Then he discovered he’d dropped his wallet somewhere in the store. He told Fudd he thought it might be in the fastener department.

“Wait here,” said Fudd. “I’ll look.”

Panhandlety watched Fudd march to the fastener department, glance around, then return, all within 2 minutes' time.

“It’s not in the store,” Fudd declared.

“But it could be anywhere in the store” Panhandlety protested. “I know I had it when I came it.”

“Oh, so it just decided to leave the fastener department and crawl somewhere else,” Fudd sneered. “Do you know how idiotic that sounds?”

Panhandlety retorted, “I sure do, and I can’t understand why you would suggest it.”

Mythravere gets it right again. It's silly to think the globe in global warming consists only of the atmosphere. Just as it's stupid to intimate that heat "decides" to go somewhere. Heat has no capacity to make decisions. It moves from a warmer place to a colder.

"so lets get this straight, somehow, global warming ended 18 year ago but just decided to warm the upper part of the ocean and not land, LOLOL SURE that is PROOF POSITIVE LOL"

Well when the area of land on this planet comprises somewhere around 29% of the total surface area with the oceans taking up the rest it only makes sense that the oceans would pick up more warming than the land mass would.

When you factor in the discovery that the oceans have taken up more heat than anticipated...then you get an understanding of why the atmospheric heating has leveled off for the most part.

I know its hard to understand but this is science updating itself with new information.
