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.

"I have provided a link more than once of 31,487 American scientists that signed a petition rejecting man made global warming."

That would an Appeal to Authority Fallacy. You have proven nothing.

Simple question harry even for you. Why is bill Nye any more credible than over 31,000 scientists that don't buy your warming myth

I am not the one predicting doom, it's you who are afraid.

Have you read the petition of over 31,000.american scientists?

I checked out what CNS said, and I explained why I feel they distorted the issue. Won't you accord Bill Nye the same consideration?

Why are you so afraid?

Tiredofit,

Did you even check out what Bill Nye said?

How easily you forget. I have provided a link more than once of 31,487 American scientists that signed a petition rejecting man made global warming. Each was denounced as a shill for an oil company or not a "real" climatologist. Now you hold up a host for a kids tv show mechanical engineer with a BS IN science. So why SHOULD he be any more credible.

As to the question of why we need redemption, I like Tiredofit’s answer.

That takes care of CNS. With respect to Bill Nye, Mythravere, of course, asked the relevant question: “Why are the things Bill Nye said false?”

Tiredofit, as usual, refused to address the relevant question.

I agree.

We shouldn’t reject an article simply because it appears in a certain publication. We should judge each article on its own merits.

And, as I pointed out earlier, the CNS article distorts NOAA’s findings when they claim “…[2012] was one of the coolest of the decade, and thus confirms the cooling trend.”

In this case, the article distorts by leaving out key facts—9 of the 10 hottest years on record have come within the decade in question and a decade isn’t long enough to establish a climate trend.

So, while we shouldn’t reject a CNS article outright, it’s ok to suspect CNS articles because we have already caught them distorting evidence.

The Counter Climate Change Movement (CCCM) regularly distorts scientific evidence by omitting key facts.

Seems to me that when facts and the truth are laid on the table you look for a means of discrediting the source so that you don't have to deal with an......inconvenient truth. You mean like CNS, Christian Science Monitor, Forbes, Fox and all the other ones you dismiss out of hand????? Hypocritcal much?

In the case of Bill Nye he's not to be trusted because he hosted a science based tv show which lead to him attaining a spot in popular culture?

What is the reasoning for distrusting him?

So easily lead you say? Hmmm.

Why are the things Bill Nye said false?

Seeing as how the test featured in his video is something that you or me could easily perform I wonder why he would go to the trouble of doing something that could be easily debunked?

It can't though can it?

If so then explain why.
