How to deal with a Global Warming skeptic in a cooling world

By the blogowner, honestclimate, December 16, 2008

The world is no warmer today than it was in 1998, we can’t have people thinking that global warming has stopped. Below is an easy to understand flow diagram on how to deal with global warming skeptics in a cooling world…

Lol! I especially like the second set of conditions to becoming a climate scientist. If I’m not mistaken, I qualify at least 4 times – does it mean that I have a PhD in Climate Science?

2. honestclimate - December 16, 2008

Yes indeed! Your PhD certificate awaits you on the IPCC website 😉

Also be sure to see my post on “Understanding Man-Made Climate Change”:

If skeptic is a paleontologist then skeptic = a Neanderthal

My favorite was “The skeptic clearly doesn’t believe smoking causes cancer”. This is freaking genius!

The smoker-skeptic rebuttal is an actual reply used against Richard Lindzen, who smokes. Hey, they have to try *something* to discredit Lindzen!

Folks here might be interested in material on my husband’s website:

Honestclimate, I’m printing all 3 of your charts to post on my wall. Sweet!

Ellen, thanks for the link. Dr. Gould’s Open Letter to Members of the American Physical Society/New England Section found at the link you provided is excellent. Besides arguing for scientific truth over propaganda, it provides “one stop shopping” for links offering evidence against the “concensus” view.

I’m so excited about my PhD! He he he

I think the idea is good, you could have used that kind of stuff to make hilarious charts.

However, those aren’t even remotely funny. Did it take like 3 minutes to do that?

Also, by saying that the world isn’t warmer than it was 2008 you’re not telling the whole truth. If you look at the CLIMATE (for example, 5 year average of global temperatures) you’ll see that it is a LOT warmer. And that’s the whole point.

Dear Tuukka Simonen

To answer your question

“Did it take like 3 minutes to do that?”
No, it took me only 2 minutes, I type very fast.

“However, those aren’t even remotely funny.”
Well, it’s funny to me and that’s all that counts. Every time I get an alarmist post like yours it just motivates me even more. So thanks for the motivation!

Also if you don’t like the fact that record cold and snow records have been broken left right and centre, please take it up with Mother Nature. In the mean time I suggest you dress warmly, its getting mighty cold out there…

” its getting mighty cold out there…”

On a point of information: In half the world it is and has been pretty hot. Like Australia and all the countries in the southern hemisphere.

Three FACTS for all you skeptics and alarmists alike to chew on: There are 3 major reasons why we have this debate at all and people deserve to know the TRUTH.
FACT 1: carbon is not the black sooty stuff we all go EEEEWWW at – it’s CO2, get it, ie plant food. And because of an insane fear that we will see obese cabbages and stuffed carrots gorged on CO2, the IPCC was hired by disturbed greenies and vegans.
FACT 2: Polar bears WANT it warmer. They have nightmares thinking about all those coats and boots we will need if we know how COLD it’s gonna get. So they too lobbied the IPCC
FACT 3: Frustrated by the cooling, the IPCC has resorted to trebling the amount of hot air it is producing. Alarmists have been told to spare not a single breath, and puff and huff to the max. Now, that might just warm things up significantly!

The thought that the earth has “A” temperature is a ludicrous idea. At any point on any day, the temperatue is influenced by the sun, the clouds, the ocean currents, the state of the measuring devices, temperatures and reflections of nearby things, etc. The same is true of all CO2 claims. This data has all been cherry to create a fantasy picture of the world. It is about as useful as would be trying to determine your own temperature by sticking a thermometer in Al Gores butt!

“But we are talking averages here!”. Right! So, on average we’ll be just find if I stand on ice while you sit in boiling water! This entire debate serves only to demonstrate how gullible and silly most people are. The next time you encounter a global warming wacko believer, simply ask him or her this question; What should the temperature of the earth be? Than sit back and watch them struggle as they attempt to answer the most fundamental question about the climate! You will be entertained!

There might be global warming or cooling but the important issue is whether we, as a human race, can do anything about it.

There are a host of porkies and not very much truth barraging us everyday so its difficult to know what to believe.

I think I have simplified the issue in an entertaining way on my blog which includes some issues connected with climategate and “embarrassing” evidence.

In the pipeline is an analysis of the economic effects of the proposed emission reductions. Watch this space or should I say Blog

PS The term “porky” is listed in the Australian Dictionary of Slang.( So I’m told.)
