Climate Denial Meltdown

| May 1, 2011 | 2 Replies

As we seem to be discussing conspiracy theories here lately, let’s take a look at Climate-gate, the oft repeated Fox News banner of climate change denialism.
This video is a good and detailed look at not only the emergence and initial rallying cry of Climate-gate, but also how a thoroughly disproved lie emerges again later as a new rallying cry.

It is a pity that this video does not even bother to go into the criminal activity used to gather the misleading information. The forces of anti-reason are tireless, and this is just one of many subjects in which it manifests.

    Thanks, Dan. This was clearly spelled out.

  2. So, like, Dr. Muller, just like a real scientist, set about to prove the other guy wrong…and then validated the prior results. Hmm. Sounds like Dr. Muller, too, is a real scientist, and with some integrity, too.

    That's the way it works.
