“Response” (to “…I would be interested to see how one can prove from such varying data that the warming has accelerated over time”), by Tamino

Denialist tripe, swatted by Tamino. Now, I know I am learning via the Denial101x course by John Cook (and many others) that the reason why Deniers are Deniers is because the notion of global warming itself challenges their values or the solutions they imagine are needed to curtail warming are unacceptable. Nevertheless, it is amazing to me that people will repeatedly trot out the same old crap and somehow believe if they do they are advancing understanding. Either they don’t really understand, or they are just parrots of a few key spigots of climate denial. I don’t know the degree to which this is true, but I have read, but have not (yet) investigated that some comments at online news sites are not posted by people but by bots. Now, in Tamino’s case, it’s improbable Mallett is a bot, but this might go some of the way explaining my dismay on why the same old-same old gets trotted out, including the “warming stopped in 1998” thing.

Open Mind

Some comment replies require more than just a few brief lines.
