The holidays and a medical complication with a relative of mine are probably going to slow up my process of putting out blog pieces over the next two or three weeks, so I’ll take this brief time to sincerely wish those who read this a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy New Year, Happy Winter Solstice and other applicable celebrations. And in the spirit of good will toward our fellow citizens that the holiday season inspires, ……
….. a suggestion for anyone following this site who happens to be directly or tangentially involved in efforts to say skeptic climate scientists are paid to operate under an industry directive to lie about the issue: ’Fess up about not having any evidence over the last 23+ years to back that up. It’s the wisest thing to do, for the greater good of the public and for saving yourselves. The only thing keeping that ship afloat this whole time is the abject failure of mainstream media journalists to check the veracity of it.
Bruce Ismay: But this ship can’t sink!
Thomas Andrews: She’s made of iron, sir. I assure you, she can. And she will. It is a mathematical certainty.
If skeptic climate scientists were bonafide industry shills, we would have already seen irrefutable proof of it 20, 15, 10, 5 years ago, not the ‘industry enemy du jour’ shifts from Western Fuels, the Global Climate Coalition, Exxon, Kochs, etc. This abysmal failure to show us all absolute evidence of illicit money exchanged for fabricated, demonstratively false science papers / assessments is the proverbial ‘mathematical certainty‘ that dooms the accusation, and places the whole idea of man-caused global warming in peril of sinking if its promoters cannot defend their position against science-based criticism from skeptic scientists.
