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.

You may feel the topic is science but what you really mean is that the topic is science that you accept and nothing else. It's ok, you get confused quite easily.

You do realize that science changes right? To hold a person in 2014 to the standards and ideas of 1970 would be very silly. That would be like forcing a Christian to be a literalist just because a 100 years ago, the vast majority of them were.

Kendall, I have never been to that place in Vienna, but I take that as some kind of threat. Be careful what you ask for.

I do use my real name...Kendall. I've always said that. Seems some angry children don't understand the simple things in life. So tragic.

Will you stop by Buffalo Wild Wings tonight around 10:30? I'll even buy you a drink before beating you at trivia.

I am offering you a chance to prove who I am to you. Will you expand the horizons of your knowledge with a simple enough test or will you hide with your head in the sand? I know you find it quite comfortable there, you seem to spend so much time in that place.

Not the 1970's and today's scientists and research has nothing to do with that stuff.

"deny the very existence of evolution"

Pitiful tactic, the topic is about global warming and not evolution.

Global warming is something that can be observed in real time. We can keep records of how it is going about. When one discusses evolution, you cannot do that.

Let’s fast forward to the 1970s, when we were entering a new ice age and the only possible solution was – surprise - more government power. The global cooling panic morphed into the global warming panic. Suddenly, temperatures were inexorably rising and the ice caps were melting. In fact, they should be melted by now.

But “global warming” is problematic when the uncherry-picked evidence shows that the Earth is not getting significantly warmer. The hockey stick is stuck. Now, one might take this new evidence and revise one’s conclusion to conform to the observed data. We call that science. But we are dealing with “science,” and when the evidence doesn’t support your conclusion you change the name of the phenomenon.

Hence, “climate change.” Its goal was stop us wacky literalists from being able to point to a lack of warming to disprove global warming. Apparently, we were fools to expect that what the scammers called “warming” might involve warming.

"how would one know that what you say is the truth? there are MANY Kendalls here in the MOV. NO PROOF OFFERED"

Style of writing. Consistency of opinions. Things that won't make any sense to the likes of you.

But hey, if you have the time.****e on down to Buffalo Wild Wings in Vienna around 10:30 tonight and I'll meet you there. We can play some buzztime trivia.

That is..if you actually live around here.

"the most inconvenient truth of all is that it hasn’t gotten significantly warmer since the industrial revolution started generating CO2, and it hasn’t warmed at all in recent years."

You are so near sighted it's sad. Deniers...they are an odd bunch indeed.

FWIW, I didn't name call, I stated a FACT, you ARE a fraud and you KNOW IT. You profess ad nasuium your Christian religion on this forum and deny the very existence of evolution yet you chastise those that don't buy into the current BS of supposed well paid scientists. That makes you a fraud and hypocrite, if you see that as namecalling, lets just say its accurate

"you don't offer up your real name either"

And you are therefor incorrect again. Kendall is my last name. I've also written many letters to the editor using my name.

In the end, you don't use your real name because I gather you are a coward.

Harry I pay little attention to you regardless of your kissing my ring or attacking me. The FACT is you don't live anywhere near here and have NO connection to the mid ohio valley, one has to wonder why you feel the need to be here. I don't post on the Las Vegas Examiner web site as I DONT LIVE THERE.
