You Know How I Know Global Warming is Mostly Baloney?

By Sean Lynch on General

Because the people arguing against Global Warming “skeptics” feel the need to resort to ad hominem attacks and highly emotionally charged wording to make their case.

Some zingers:

“In his recent opinion piece, National Post’s Terrence Corcoran displays how out of touch he is with the recent National Academy of Science’s findings on Confused?climate change. It is not worth debating the misinformation he purports, so we will just post a link to his piece and let it speak for itself.”

“I am not a scientist, but I do know that in science, much like any other profession, it helps to know the background of the information source.” Standard “shill of the energy industry” accusation.

And those are just from the front page. Anyone who disputes Global Warming is called a “spinner.” Any information calling Global Warming into doubt is “disinformation” even if it’s simply a matter of differing opinions. Honestly, I’d much rather hang with the skeptics than with people like this. I wonder what they’d say about Michael Crichton?
