Interesting email today from one of the “advocates” of climate change. Said advocate noted he does not read this blog because he can’t take the face-painting and head-banging (I think he has me confused with some other site, but who knows?). Now, if I recall correctly (and I do because I have all kinds of backup material), one of the objections to skeptics is that they don’t read the actual science pages, only their own pages, to avoid learning anything new. WOW, now I get confirmation that advocates do EXACTLY THE SAME THING. Isn’t that most interesting? Apparently advocates are afraid of the truth, right? I mean, that’s their interpretation of people who avoid opposing views, so it’s not like I made it up. It’s their standard. Okay, it’s been known for years and there’s really no way to fix it, but I do feel obligated to point out that climate science really isn’t about the science and only about agreement whenever evidence drops in.
As an aside, there are some awesome mammatus clouds this morning, but it’s too dark yet to get picture.
Another thing I should address is people who disagree with me telling me to take a class in science presuming that if I had taken science I would immediately recognize how indisputable their position is. I will list the classes I have taken and if you have one that isn’t on the list, I will consider it. For those of you who change the subject or tell someone else to take a science or physics class, I can’t reach someone who ignores his/her own requirements.
High school—chemistry, physics, geometry, trigonometry, algebra
College—general chemistry, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, instrumental chemistry, physical chemistry, statistics for non-science majors, statistics for science majors, calculus (several biology classes also)
Online—science based course on climate change from MIT
As for those saying to “read a research paper”, been there, done that too. I am always open for suggestions on what papers I could read.
