Just spent the last couple of days trying to get some sense out of or back into a couple of young climate alarmists. My first comment was fairly innocuous but was immediately met with insults and invective.
Every effort I made to bring a few points to the debate was met with the same sort of result, insult, assertion and invective - but no logical refute.
I tried to show that there were a large number of scientists with good credentials that were skeptical about how settled the climate debate was - only to be met by the assertion that these people were all discredited.
They even tried to call 'Godwin's Law' on me - by suggesting that one of the lists of dozens of climate change skeptic scientists - was the equivalent of Hitler
Gary Lindsay entered the debate... and his contribution was characterised as a "Gish Gallop"
I started to suspect, from the type of comments that Tong was putting up that he may have been infected by veganism - and made an aside to that effect - only to have it confirmed by his mate, Hudspith.
High time I bring this discussion to an end methinks...
Tong gets precious when it appears someone is giving back what he gives...
