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.

Oneil here is a bible verse that applies so well to you.

Proverbs 18:7 A fool's mouth is his undoing, and his lips are a snare to his soul.

FROM BROOKINGS After the warm and relatively snowless winter of 2012 over 1 out of 3 Americans that thought global warming was happening indicated that mild winters in their area had a “very large” effect on their position regarding global warming. But after the colder and snowier conditions of the winter of 2013 only about 1 in 5 Americans that think global warming is occurring said that milder winter conditions in their area had a “very large” effect on their views on this subject. TOO BAD YOU ARE LOSING THE DEBATE

When you don't know what you are talking about, just blame climate change, Fox News and Rush, right, myth and oneill?

Don't those idiots know that climate change made that airplane disappear? And climate change would be stopped if it were not for Fox. Fox is responsible for so few tornadoes and very few hurricanes too. Fox Power. Whatever the weather, they did it.

And that is a consensus of my peers.

Oneill, why do you constantly put your ignorance on display by talking about what the "right" will do? I am on tbe right and being a long time subscriber to the News and Sentinel, how will I be affected? Talking about yourself?

Hope you and the peers are keeping warm. A fake concensus just gives an illusion of warmth so be careful.

I forgot to add this.

Anyone who cites Fox News as a source is pretty much admitting that they are misinformed.

Not that anyone cares what you say. But just so you know. It can be proven with facts that Fox News is deliberately deceptive in the news they "report".

The head honcho has an agenda and Fox News reflects that agenda.

From the hyper partisan bent they take to the flat out false accusations and insinuations they make.

Fox News isn't news. Its a rightwing propaganda mouthpiece.

Even their slogan We report you decide is misnomer. They decide before hand how the news must be spun and they spin it to make those that their boss disagrees with out to be bad.

Fox News is yellow journalism at its worst.

A consensus in sciences is just that.a consensus. Any IMBE--cile that had to resort to idiotic accusations of someone watching fox news is . . . . .well is just a freaking imbecile.

And that's is my consensus.

On the issue of pay to play. It won't affect me one bit. I don't need to be on this site. Sure has been fun but you know what..big deal.

I won't have to worry about the stupid pop ups that I can't seem to block. The pop ups by the way are horrible on my android phone. You literally can't do anything without triggering one. Its annoying.

I just hope the paper is ready for a drop off in ad revenue and the potential that online readership will take a big hit.

Once the switch is made I won't even bother with this site.

The new Cosmos show is awesome. Its hilarious that it is causing people on the right to throw a fit though.

People demanding equal time to air their views on the origin of life.

Only problem is that they would have to be able to bring some proof to the table that specifically backs up their views to stand a chance. And we all know that can't happen.

Oh its so funny. Mr Tyson even took on the issue of the the complexity of the eye.

HA HA HA! LOL!

Its funny that so many are willing to argue the science is wrong...but when science lead to a medical treatment being developed that makes their lives better or saves their lives...yep no questioning the science there.

Its a political issue for most of the people who deny it. Its the old us versus them paradigm rearing its ugly head.

That is the biggest problem you have selling this myth, other than the TOTAL LACK Of warming. The socialist left has made this a religion and skepticism is bound to be the result.

Its funny Fred, you can see the motives of Christians and oil companies but fail to see the motives of big government socialists and green companies trying to shove out the oil and gas business. You also turn a blind eye to the BILLIONS of dollars that reward those that find the supposed warming.

REAL scientists engage in repeated studies and do not base their "consensus" views upon either Biblical prophecy or oil company propaganda . NO they are based on FAULTY models and BIG GOVT FUNDING>

Oneil exactly "Climatologists" A a gathering of two or more persons who agree on a subject "a consensus' They are NOT scientists and their "ideas" are never approved through the science world vetting process. They are NOT approved because they have ALWAYS failed to use "proper" scientific methods. So you can have two or you can have thousands that have a "consensus" and they can all hold "peer" reviews and then clap each other on their backs HOWEVER the science field rejects all their Consensus.

Time to wake up and smell the garbage you drank last night oniel..............AGW and all the quacking about Climate Change has come to light........

Give it up

Climate Scintetstetetesteeees can "consensus" all they want that's all it is a consensus. However science is real with facts not consensuses. And you won't find anyone in the "science" world take it beyond a consensus.

Why because its garbage only imbecile could possible believe in.

They have never done anything but "peer" reviews because the science community rejects their hypothesis and their theories BECAUSE they fail to use scientific methods in their decisions.

Climate scientists inhabit a world foreign to most of us. So we can find it hard to believe what they say, especially when many of us, including me, have close friends and relatives who don’t want to believe anthropogenic CO2 is causing problems.

Yet climate scientists only grow stronger in their consensus.

Geochemist James Powell reviewed 2259 peer-reviewed articles from 9136 authors recently published (11/13 to 12/14). Of those, only one “propose(d) a fundamentally different reason for temperature rise than anthropogenic CO2).”

*******blogs.scientificamerican.co m/the-curiouswavefunction/2014/01/10/about-that-consensus-on-global-warming-9136-agree-one-disagrees/

Maybe the networks didn’t report much on the work of skeptical climate scientists because skeptical scientists are so hard to find.

Like it or not, it seems to me we’ll have to accept this global warming science.

"COLD SHOULDER: ABC, CBS Exclude Scientists Critical of Global Warming for More Than 1,300 Days -

Like a simple parlor trick, the networks are able to make skeptical scientists vanish, at least from the eyes of their viewers."

No wonder viewers of the alphabet networks think the science is settled and every scientist agrees with them.

Censorship at its worst. Dispute the facts if you can, not the source.
