Forget what the core elements in the smear of skeptic climate scientists are? See my four Background posts. For new readers who are just beginning to learn how the ‘industry-corrupted skeptic climate scientists’ accusation is totally baseless …. Continue reading
For the latest readers arriving at this blog, I periodically have short descriptions of upcoming material under the “Watch this space” title. Up next, if commenters at online global warming discussions have the intent of intimidating me out of making observations on the issue by directing other commenters to a negative profile of me, wouldn’t be best to provide them with profile details which actually prove their belief that I’m a liar-for-hire, instead of presenting an appearance which causes critical thinkers to wonder if the whole ‘skeptic-climate-scientists-liars-for-hire’ accusation is suspect?
Meanwhile, please do scroll down this page for my completed posts, and return soon to see how the next one coming up will fill in this space.
Using absurdity to illustrate absurdity – one more example of how the claim that ‘climate change deniers are untrustworthy because they also deny the harm of cigarette smoking’ implodes under hard scrutiny. Continue reading
What does that have to do with climate science? Absolutely nothing, and by God, any idiot knows breathing second-hand cigarette smoke can’t be good for you. So if anyone or any organization even remotely denies that it is at least harmful in some way, then those people are folks you want to avoid mentioning at all costs, so as not look like a fool yourself. This includes situations where those same folks dare to question the settled science of catastrophic man-caused global warming. It’s all a brilliant setup ….. but there is one eensy-beensy fatal problem here. Continue reading
It’s one thing for book author / documentary movie star Naomi Oreskes to be tapped for quotations on the state of affairs in the global warming issue — last night’s appearance on the PBS NewsHour (2:49 point here), for example. It’s quite another problematic situation when she is tapped for work by Democrat politicians. Continue reading
I dissect myriad angles of the accusation about skeptic climate scientists ‘being paid by Big Coal & Oil to lie to the public’ for basically for one reason: to amass bulletproof information for journalists who want to objectively tell the story of how character assassination has been used as a tactic to steer the public away from taking those skeptics’ science assessments seriously, and/or for attorneys or congressional investigators who might want to hold people accountable who may have engaged in either libel/slander against skeptic climate scientists, or who may have engaged in some form of racketeering to prevent their global warming gravy train from derailing. Regarding the following problem, envision a TV courtroom drama scene, where the prosecuting attorney raises some action the defendant made, the defense attorney objects, and the prosecutor replies with, “goes to motive!” Continue reading
In my previous post, I detailed at length how an apparently hapless college student’s “Misinformation Campaigns Spread by the Fossil Fuel Industry” research paper fell apart under hard scrutiny. Today, let’s spend a shorter time on the elemental idea of ‘misinformation’ in the global warming issue, and where it seems to be more readily found. Continue reading
It is a propagandist’s dream to live in relative obscurity while seeing his work repeated and embraced across the land. People have asked me why I dwell on global warming issue book author Ross Gelbspan, who was at the peak of his fame over a decade ago. Let me show you how it is not the man I dwell on, but his words and the outgrowth from them. Continue reading
Part 1 of this 2-part post was little more than my illustration of what I do when I’m not composing material for this blog, using a ‘guest post’ at Christopher Keating’s “Dialogs on Global Warming” blog. Today, I’ll illustrate how Keating’s subsequent diatribe against me is little more than a microcosm of the larger problem plaguing the political side of the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) issue.
