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.

Here we go again! LOL!

Lets see you put out your "reasoning" on the issue of climate change. Absolutely nothing you say sticks..it gets thwarted with REASON and....jeepers creepers.

Hey Harry you're a fraud!

What a laughable deflection.

You believe the earth was created by God in 6 days, yet think man has control over the very clImate. You call those who are skeptical anti science. What a fraud

The only fear presented here is you claiming the world will be in dire straights if we don't give our liberties and money tom government. You are such a fraud

Yeah harry you fraud, much like you mock science with you belief about the origins of the earth itself.

Tiredofit writes,

“The two are inseparable as it IS a political agenada, not a scientific discussion.”

Tiredofit’s statement accurately describes the Counter Climate Change Movement’s campaign to belittle science. They seek to deflect the discussion from scientific research by stoking political fears.

They don’t want us to view the issue like the chairman of Exxon-Mobile views it—as “an engineering problem with an engineering solution.” They want us to view the issue as a struggle between opposing ideological camps.

And this explains many of the responses we see here. Posters disparage the science and engineering. They won’t even look at the scientific evidence. Instead, they want us to adopt their own paranoid fears.

Tiredofit admits that he sees it as a political problem. That’s why he discredits the science.

It’s not a political problem. It’s an engineering problem with an engineering solution.

"There is no proof that man has any such influence over climate."

Why do you think that? Why do you think that the dominant species on the planet that dumps tons of chemicals in the air, able to effect the ecosystem of the entire ocean and create the power of a star by splitting the atom has no effect upon the climate?

Our planet has a carbon cycle. Only thing is we are putting more into the system than what the system can take out.

That has consequences.

The experiment on the Bill Nye video simply shows what all the carbon can do once it is in the atmosphere.

I would really like to hear why that experiment is wrong in what it shows.

Am I to believe that if I performed that experiment something totally different would happen? Am I to believe that no difference in the temperature between the two jars would be observed?

If that is true either explain or point me in the direction of the information that informed you of the "real" nature of that experiment.

"Did you notice it was a very low year for tornadoes this year?"

And how is that evidence that climate change isn't occurring? Climate is more than weather patterns in the middle of the US.

"And what had your imbecile scientists predicted?"

I have no scientists...imbicile or otherwise.

You know if one goes back and digs into the history of this area and the areas like it that produce coal.

Take a long hard look in particular at the railroads the built their empires by hauling coal.

For a very long time there have been mile long trains pulling coal out of just our mountains.

There are pictures of the coal docks in Roanoke Virginia with storage yards filled to the gills with full coal hoppers.

The carbon content of coal runs from 60+ to 91.5% in the case of Anthracite.

Once used all that carbon goes into the atmosphere where it for the most part stays.

That is a sh!t ton of carbon...just from coal!

It doesn't take an intelligent person to figure out dropping an egg with crack it.

Pulling all of that carbon out the ground and putting it into the atmosphere has consequences.

If the tobacco companies did a peer reviewed study suggesting smoking made you smarter, I would be a skeptic. When the Ippc who's very funding depends on a crisis says something I am a skeptic. When the predictions dont come to fruition I am a doubter

There is no proof that man has any such influence over climate. There are suspected links, bad models, but no ACTUAL proof, just a handful of people with a 7 or8 million dollar budget keeping the gravy train rolling.

"Professor admits faking AIDS vaccine to get $19M in grants"

Whether it is medical research, or climate research, just follow the money. What a corrupt bunch of snakes come out of our supposedly schools of learning these days. I wouldn't believe a climate scientist unless I knew enough about him to know he is honest.I know plenty of crooked ones have been exposed.

Did you notice it was a very low year for tornadoes this year? And what had your imbecile scientists predicted?

It's only political if you allow it to be so. Ignore the politics and focus on the science the best you can.

"the recent ice age"

I find it interesting that you mention this since one of the possible causes of the Little Ice Age (who knows or really cares if you were talking about it) was due to a volcano throwing up material into the atmosphere.

Another possibly cause is the altered change in the ocean flow due to the Medieval Warm Trend.

So while these causes were natural, mankind can assist in creating these causes again. Climate is complex but to ignore that we are in fact a contributor to it is foolish and dangerous.

Tired, Ithink- out of the past 2 pages I have seen NO evidence of any kind to back up your position. You have done nothing but deny without and try to make this a political argument instead of a scientific one.
