It's moderately amusing how, having categorically rejected any and all science that supports the notion of climate change, some Blogging Tories are now enthusiastically supporting any alleged "science", no matter how shoddy, that contradicts it.
What a great gig. Can I choose my preferred snippets of reality, too?
BOB CARTER, MORON. Since all of the above scientifically-illiterate dipsticks reference exactly the same article from Canada Free Press, and since that article makes such a big deal of one Professor Bob Carter, it naturally behooves us to take a closer look at the dumbfuckery of Prof. Carter.
This has been a public service announcement aimed at those who truly want to understand what is happening with respect to climate change. This does not, of course, include any Blogging Tories, who are simply beyond help these days.
BAD CRITIC. NO BISCUIT. Commenter "ruairidh" weighs in on the controversy, with unfortunate results.
All research in this area should be welcome but there is an unfortunate trend amongst some people to declare that the issue has been settled and any sceptic/denier /heretic who deviates from the dogma should be abused and ridiculed. This post on your blog is a particularly fine example of this hysteria.
Really? In what way? I can't wait to hear this.
By getting into a personal attack against one contributor to an article ...
I'm sorry ... "personal" attack? Where? There's absolutely nothing "personal" about accusing someone of being a partisan hack and ignorant dumbfuck if you go on to back it up with unimpeachable evidence. Nice try, though. Onward.
... (which if you were being fair quotes many more scientists than the one you single out) you do your arguments a disservice.
Ah, so one of my sins was that I didn't discredit each and every contributor to that article. Of course, if I had tried such a thing, every contributor I eviscerated would have been just as quickly replaced with another dishonest hack, and I would never have been able to keep up.
I should point out that, while the Blogging Tories I linked to above simply gleefully swallowed every bit of nonsense that was presented in that article, I was the only one who took the time to dig a little deeper. And for that, I am chastised for, apparently, not digging deeply enough. You just can't please some people, can you?
Just for the record in case you want to call me scientifically illiterate ...
Not scientifically illiterate. Just logically incoherent. And, just for the record, don't take it personally.
ADDITIONAL SMACKDOWN AT NO EXTRA CHARGE: Since just one disemboweling is apparently not enough for some folks, I'll toss in a second one for free. From that hideously dishonest CFP article:
Even among that fraction, many focus their studies on the impacts of climate change; biologists, for example, who study everything from insects to polar bears to poison ivy. "While many are highly skilled researchers, they generally do not have special knowledge about the causes of global climate change," explains former University of Winnipeg climatology professor Dr. Tim Ball. "They usually can tell us only about the effects of changes in the local environment where they conduct their studies."
And since Ball makes several appearances in that article, it seems only fair that one be allowed to heap discredit on the article by doing the same to Ball, no?
There. That's two. Is two enough?
