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.

Unlike you Stillwrong, Harry actually explains his point of view on topics. I've never known him to just go into absolutes when it suits him.

Your style though is to post whatever is easy and never break down your thoughts on the topic. You two are hardly similar to one another.

Nothing wrong in pointing out his faulty logic in believing part of what a doc says but ignoring the rest. Wouldn't you agree?

@ Kendall78,

It's best not to be drawn into idiotic behavior, lest you and all your posts disappear.

@Harry I was trying to see if Stillwrong considers what Dr. Pachauri as a "provable fact" or evidence..proof..whatever.

If he does then he has to agree with everything the doc says. We both know of course he won't because he is an idiot.

@Kendall78

So, if you meant to imply that Dr. Pachauri is in the consensus camp, you have done so.

@Kendall78

You’re quite right, sir.

Those interested may find Dr. Pachauri’s quote, which came last March when the IPCC issued its latest report, here:

htt p://ww w.npr.or g/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/03/31/297092061/u-n-report-raises-climate-change-warning-points-to-opportunities

He has also written:

“A multilateral agreement to tackle climate change is absolutely essential…”

htt p://ww w.theguardian.co m/environment/cif-green/2010/jan/04/climate-change-delay-denial

And he has said:

“What is happening, and what is likely to happen, convinces me that the world must be really ambitious and very determined at moving toward a 350 target.”

What a surprise, Stillwrong is cowering from the question.

Pachauri is an expert that should be listened to when it serves Stillwrong's position but when he doesn't...Stillwrong becomes deaf/mute. What a coward.

Rajendra Pachauri believes there is no slowdown in global warming. Is this true Stillwrong? And if he is wrong here, why is he right with what you posted?

"Nobody on this planet is going to be untouched by the impacts of climate change”-Rajendra Pachauri Chairman, IPCC

Is this true Stillwrong? Pachauri said it and you consider what he says as a fact right?

"THE UN’s climate change chief, Rajendra Pachauri,"

So what this man says you will consider a PROVABLE FACT...this is what you are saying Stillwrong?

Yes or No

18 years and no global warming. Al,et al, are complete fools.

Many bad things have happened under the Obama regime. Global warming would just be a minor blip, even if it were real.

Watch out for ebola. And the corrupt IRS. And the devastating obamacare. And ISIS. And laws being ignored. And illegals taking your child's school space and tax dollars. And the beat (list) goes on.

"You just cannot get past that fact can you? THERE HAS BEEN NO WARMING IN 18 YEARS"

A fact? You are claiming you can prove it to be a fact there has been NO warming?

Please do that will you.

"lol sure you may try to back up your claim that Mr Watts doesn't know..."

Oh Stillwrong, you want me to prove what a person doesn't know? HAHA, you are just as silly as ever but at least your new username suits you.

I don't know why the fossil fuel industry should get 2% of all government revenue.

I'm sure Tiredofit would have an answer if he hadn't suddenly disappeared.

Sorry Stillwrong, Anthony Watts doesn't know what he is talking about.

You may explain why you believe in his stats and records if you wish.

We all know you won't but I love pointing out to everyone that you have no idea what you are talking about.

"Oh do show how there has been warming"

Certainly Stillwrong, just tell me what form of evidence you will accept as evidence.

No point in wasting your time or mine with sources you will not accept right?

Go on, please tell us what form of evidence you will accept. You had many many months to figure it out.

It's humorous that Stillwrong says that there has been no warming in 18 years.

He lies so easily doesn't he?

Everybody should pay his or her own way. Government should avoid picking winners and losers.

But government picks fossil fuel companies to be the winners.

According to the International Monetary Fund, “On a ?pre-tax? basis, subsidies for petroleum products, electricity, natural gas, and coal reached $480 billion in 2011 (0.7 percent of global GDP or 2 percent of total government revenues). “

ht tp://w ww.imf.or g/external/np/pp/eng/2013/012813.pdf

480 billion bucks. You can cut government spending by 2% just by eliminating subsidies on fossil fuel.

Its hilarious that the "disappeared" was claiming victory....but yet still hammering this forum with his copy/pastes. Which caused him in the end to defeat his own self.

Because it isn't just this site he disappeared from.

Yep the wind always dies down at some point or someone shuts the door.

I'd rather not see a bunch of degrading comments.
