John Cook’s climate blog scepticalscience joins the list of those pushing the man made global warming meme which delete comment answering their brash rhetoric in ways they can’t rebut fairly in open debate.
I have been posting comments to a thread promoting a John Cook book entitled Climate Change Denial: Heads in the Sand.
Before I show you the comment and my censored reply, here is a quote from the book:
“Just because there a professor of something denying climate change does not mean it is not true, it is just that the professor is in denial. This is why one must make use of the preponderance of evidence in science, the collective view.” – John Cook (“Climate Change Denial”, 2011).
John Cook and his acolytes have a lot to say about the mental state of people who have doubts about the IPCC view of climate change, making frequent reference to Dunning-Kruger, delusion and etc
It’s a scarily brief step from
“The professor is in denial” to “The professor is delusional” to “The professor would be better off keeping quiet” to “The professor has been removed to a mental institution for the good of himself and society”.
First they came for the professor…
But I digress.
Here is the comment and my reply, now, sadly,
