Whoda Thunkit: More Inconvenient Truths About Global Warming
As in, it is looking like little more than leftwing political advocacy.It isn't science. Science incorporates contradictory data into its presuppositions and adjusts accordingly. Environmental whackjobs don't - they keep repeating the same debunked crap over and over again as if nothing ever changes.
Last Monday - on ABC Radio National, of all places - there was a tipping point of a different kind in the debate on climate change. It was a remarkable interview involving the co-host of Counterpoint, Michael Duffy and Jennifer Marohasy, a biologist and senior fellow of Melbourne-based think tank the Institute of Public Affairs. Anyone in public life who takes a position on the greenhouse gas hypothesis will ignore it at their peril. Duffy asked Marohasy: "Is the Earth stillwarming?" She replied: "No, actually, there has been cooling, if you take 1998 as your point of reference. If you take 2002 as your point of reference, then temperatures have plateaued. This is certainly not what you'd expect if carbon dioxide is driving temperature because carbon dioxide levels have been increasing but temperatures have actually been coming down over the last 10 years."BUT BUT BUT how is this possible? Algore said the debate was over, and his minions are likening people who pay attention to the actual science to Holocaust deniers! They just HAVE to be right! And he won an Oscar! SCIENCE!!123!!!
