A big frustration

I have said for years that I would not get sucked into the global warming debate. Warming is real. It is likely to end the current global civilization, to the extent one can say there is a global civilization.

But, there is only so many hours in a day to deal with ignorant assholes.

But this, 2010 – where does it fit in the warmest year list? is just too much.

Not just the stupidity of climate change denialism, but Easterbrook has manipulated data, and just plain lies as much as any creationist ever did. Even the recently departed Duane "Galloping" Gish would have respected this pile of bullshit.

The main issues are with Easterbrook's selective and dishonest manipulations of data. The main problem I have is in using graphic software to illustrate his lies. But I will keep working on it.

Creationists and climate change denialists do tend to go hand in hand.

Remember that the key point of "evidence" trotted out by climate change denialists is the short-term economic consequences of abandoning fossil fuels. An obvious non-sequitur, yes, but still one that has managed to convince the wingnuts.

Just wait, politicians are everywhere, screaming like lunatics, "Global warming is not real!" The only reason (in my personal opinion) they deny AGW is because, thought scares them.
