Fun quotes from the comment sections on the net:
Meanwhile Texas is drowing in its SECOND climate change driven flood of the last few months.
No proof of this anywhere, yet it’s constantly used to “prove” global warming, as if no flooding ever occurred prior to 1900.
The “climategate” emails showed no evidence of data fabrication. The now famous phrase about using a trick to hide the decline referred to a discussion of whether to use proxy data that diverged from direct instrumental data in one particular graph of temperatures through history. Whether the scientists used the proxy data or not, they were not talking about altering any data.
Yet every time a skeptic choses to use one set of data and not another, there is the screaming of “cherry picking”. Global warming believers cannot even define terms consistently, yet we are to believe they have complete and untainted knowledge of the future? Belief in psychics and a religion worshipping Gaia is what this is–there is NO science in any of this.
This stupid nonsense about “climategate” has been debunked by no fewer than EIGHT independent investigations. Still you sociopaths paste these lies all over the internet. Shame on you. You’re killing people and destroying property. You’re no different than common vandals and terrorists.
This is what “rational scientific discussion” of global warming looks like–calling people vandals, sociopaths and terrorists if they disagree with the religion of global warming. It has to be a religion–no real scientist would ever call someone who disagrees with him a “terrorist”. Only religious and political zealots do that.
Anti-science Christian-right Koch-supported Tea-Partier, who thinks God controls the climate, wants access to all your emails to see if you ever said anything that can be used against you somehow. All because of denier blog idiocy. Thanks a lot, guys.
Come on, Lew, were are your studies on the conspiracy ideology of global warming believers? The internet is drowning in examples. I’d be happy to forward you a thousand or so similar comments about Big Oil conspiracies, Tea Party conspiracies, religious conspiracies. Whole “believer” blogs are filled with them, used as justification for believing in global warming. The paper is crying out to be written, and you, as the truly impartial scientist you are, must simply be lacking the time to collect the needed data. I can help. Science needs the whole story told and you are a scientist. Drop me your email and I’ll get right on providing the data. I eagerly await your letting the world know how much conspiracy ideation exists and is contaminating all of climate science and policy.
According to our first commenter, this photo is PROOF of global cooling—frost on August 23rd, the earliest ever. It only takes one or two events as proof, you know.
