...EDITED....
No one has to "prove wrong" a troll who constantly tries to change the topic of discussion, Brian. Proof is for CREDIBLE posters, people who make relevant, on-topic arguments. You refuse to do these things and instead constantly rant about "warming mitigation," a topic which is NOT being discussed.

Incidentally, you've never ONCE demonstrated that an attempt to mitigate warming would "do more harm than good" or "starve more people than it saves." So these are completely unproven and unsupported claims on YOUR part. Hypocritical as well, of course...

The caveman Uggh had that discussion with Oggh when paleolithic man first discovered and used fire. Oggh grabbed the burning end of a stick and said fire was bad because it hurt. Uggh grabbed the unlit end and hit Oggh, with the lit end, proving him right.

The people selected Uggh to be their leader and used fire to improve all their lives. It's too late to put the genie back in the bottle.

Your 'I KNOW you are but what am I??' "argument" is exactly what I'd expect from a nine-year-old. Why don't you just leave? You have nothing to contribute and only childish insults to offer.

Trolls call everyone else "trolls." That's what trolls DO. Dismissed.

Looks to me like steady reduction in the public concern about the seriousness of "Global Warming" In the last 7 years I've gone from the member of a 9% minority to a 20% minority. That's over a percentage point per year. I look forward to being a member of the majority before I croak.

You could join the majority now if you'd just wise up.

But science and truth don't care how popular they are.

Of course, public opinion has little or nothing to do with the scientific fact of global warming or the evident involvement of human beings IN that warming. What this points out is that industry and partisan propaganda is having a serious effect on the public's ability to judge the facts.

IOW...propaganda works. Sadly.

Seven years? Hey Steve, I remember 8 percent as deniers aka dismissive in a recent Yale poll. So just for you:

In this update on Global Warming's Six Americas, we report that the Alarmed have grown from 10 percent of the American adult population in 2010 to 16 percent in 2012. At the same time, the Dismissive have decreased in size, from 16 percent in 2010 to 8 percent in 2012. The report focuses on how the six groups perceive the benefits and costs of reducing fossil fuel use or global warming; their support for different national climate change and energy policies; and their beliefs about who has influence over the decisions that elected officials make.

QED, deniers are shrinking in numbers. You can join the Alarmed, if you cared.

I'll bet you're in one of these minorities, too.

"Americans love their conspiracy theories. Public Policy Polling asked voters to weigh in on 20 more infamous ones, and the results show that a not-insignificant number of people believe that President Obama is the anti-Christ (13%), Big Foot exists (14%), and the planet is secretly ruled by the New World Order (28%; 4% think our societies are actually ruled by "lizard people"). Among the other results:

21% believe the government covered up a UFO crash in Roswell; 29% believe in aliens
6% believe Osama bin Laden is alive; 5% think Paul McCartney has been dead for decades
15% think there's mind-control technology hidden in TV signals
37% think global warming is a hoax
7% think the moon landing was faked
15% think Big Pharma develops new diseases as a way to make money
14% see the CIA's hand in the 1980s crack epidemic"

One often ignored consequence of global climate change is that the Northern Hemisphere is becoming warmer than the Southern Hemisphere, which could significantly alter tropical precipitation patterns, according to a new study by climatologists from the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Washington, Seattle.

Such a shift could increase or decrease seasonal rainfall in areas such as the Amazon, sub-Saharan Africa or East Asia, leaving some areas wetter and some drier than today.

"A key finding is a tendency to shift tropical rainfall northward, which could mean increases in monsoon weather systems in Asia or shifts of the wet season from south to north in Africa and South America," said UC Berkeley graduate student Andrew R. Friedman, who led the analysis.

Pres. Obama isn't the anti-christ. Pres. Obama only gets a salary of $400,000 per year(now kicks back 5%).
The first POTUS who gets a salary of $666,000 per year........ now you know the mark of the anti-christ beast.

Oh, oh! I really blew the lid completely off the Revelation!

Your Yale propaganda lists six categories instead of five. Add the lowest two, Doubtful & Dismissive, together and you get 21%.
