cavalryman said:And yet the masses remain as ignorant as ever. Sad, really. And here I thought centuries of Enlightenment have established that the science is never settled, yet the warmists claim it's so, to the point of wishing those who point out the flaws in their models be imprisoned for their heretic views. Shades of the Inquisition, no? So much for your claim that we've advanced the discourse. I do believe that my example referencing Galileo is just as apt today was it was a few centuries ago. Heretics will be denounced as ignorant, the scientific method will continue to be ignored, statistical methodology will continue to be perverted. Churchian views might have been been replaced by the dogma of the AGW cult, but nothing has changed much when it comes to discourse. Case in point, Pope Francis is very much of your opinion, so give thanks that the Catholic Church is once again denouncing heresy, contra scientific fact. #IamGalileo, if you like.
Oh - minor quibble. I've not called you ignorant. That would have been you - vis-a-vis those who refuse to bow to the orthodoxy. Projection is an interesting phenomenon, as is virtue signalling. I really wonder what triggers either.
So the answer is no, you do not wish to discuss the science. Instead you wish to go in circles addressing the faults in methods and make protests claiming dishonest. We can both play that game, it gets neither side any ground and no one walks away any more informed. I'll concede I'm often crude with my approach, however I do at least provide some information. Care to do the same?
