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.

It is time for the News and Sentinel to get rid of the idiot Ohwiseone. We have a right to look at this forum without seeing his degrading ignorant slime.

The ebola issue is pretty scary. I hope the numbers released of those who have died are accurate.

If it was really bad I'm not so sure they would tell us.

Someone should have told O'l Tired that websites don't look kindly on someone spamming their website with the contents of another website.

Oh well guess he learned the hard way.

The US State Department recently ordered 160,000 Hazmat suits for the Ebola virus, prompting concerns that the outbreak of the virus could be much larger than anticipated. In a press release on MarketWatch, Lakeland Industries described how the State Department has a massive demand for the suits

________________________________________ Christopher J. Ryan, the CEO of Lakeland Industries, stated: Lakeland stands ready to join the fight against the spread of Ebola. We understand the difficulty of getting appropriate products through a procurement system that in times of crisis favors availability over specification, and we hope our added capacity will help alleviate that problem. With the U.S. State Department alone putting out a bid for 160,000 suits, we encourage all protective apparel companies to increase their manufacturing capacity for sealed seam garments so that our industry can do its part in addressing this threat to global health. Only 1400 federal workers are currentl

I have to laugh. Look at the page number now that Tired is gone. It was over 300 but with him gone, it's down to 123.

I will say this I seriously doubt you would even have the ability to admit a personal flaw of yourself.

Such is the height of your arrogance.

Every single time you bring that up. Thats a slap in the face. A personal slap in the face.

Its a wound that you are pouring salt in.

You didn't misquote me. But you are taking an admission I made about myself and using it against me.

You are making this personal.

Here's the thing if I knew you had some sort of handicap and I knew for sure. I wouldn't use it against you.

But you being a rightwinger. I guess that kind of behaviour is to be expected.

"Forum poster and dead end job math challenged MYTH"

Since you are trying to assassinate my character do you want me to return the favor?

Believe me I have found a****sure way to make that happen.

What you don't know is that when I switched from the climate change denier group to the one that believes it is an issue is this.

For the most part I view taking care of climate change and our energy woes as one of those issue that if you take care of one it will take care of the other.

The energy issue is my main reason for being on the side of the what the scientists are saying.

In all actuality I am not criticising him. In fact I agree with him in that pressure can be applied to scientists. I just don't automatically assume that the pressure has affected the whole group of climate scientists. You on the other hand do.

We have taken billions of tons of carbon and moved it from the ground and put it into the atmosphere.

That will affect our atmosphere and the climate along with it.

Is it going to be as bad as they say. I really don't know.

What I do know is that the earths population is growing exponentially.

Thats a lot of mouths to feed and society is going to need every increasing amounts of energy to service the needs of those people.

Fossil fuels are finite. Sure we may have large amounts of it left...but fossil fuels are prone to volatility in prices and availability especially in the case of oil.

A diverse energy portfolio is in my opinion key to dealing with humanities needs in the future.

Did you not ask us to tell you that you DIDN'T have a valid point? :)

"There will be breaks in the warming at times.

Hmmm. If co2 is the cause and it continues to rise, why would there be "breaks". at times?"

Sorry to clarify. There really isn't a break in the warming but a shifting of the warming from atmospheric to oceanic warming. Because of those currents that he mentioned.
