the deniers here will never be computer programmers
Computer programming is not for everyone. "I think it's reasonably specialized, and nobody really expects most people to have to do it. It's not like knowing how to read and write and do basic math."
since they fail at reading, writing, basic math
and logic, major fail at logic

Thanks for sharing your own weakmosauce logic.

It isn't weak, thats the essential point Sketch. Sumner is weak in math, so one can reasonably deduce he is incapable of statistical analysis and most certainly computer modelling. It is a physical impossibility so the deductive reasoning is not weak, it is strong.


He might be capable and strong in the capacity of squirting goo into all the woodworking defects he needs to hide before the client shows up, but quite simply that ability cannot be reasonably deduced as indication of strength in a highly technical field of science.

What exactly is your profession and experience anyway, and how does that help ( or hinder) you in your quest for the holly grail of proving incompetence and corruption in institutional science?

Come on Sketchy, stick your neck out a little. Hell, we have no way of corroborating anything you claim so go for it.....

Bruce seems like he's been up all night fuming at the mirror. You really should have your internal problems looked at by a professional, this group therapy here is not serving you well. Anyway, anything new anywhere along the front of the climate wars?

That is how you deduce everything Rick, by how it "seems" to you. When you have confidence in your own council there is no need for the hard and difficult work of deliberation of fact, just your intuitive gut instincts that leap instantly into your consciousness from the deep well of hard earned prejudice and self preening narcissism.

Thats cool you know, I mean everyone does it. Its just those who possess humility understand that quality judgement hinges on just a little bit more. Well actually a lot more but don't let that little fact rattle your nerves. You're grip on your caulking gun might get a little shaky if your confidence starts to slip.

Just keep yapping Bruce. Your giving a fine example of humility in your unfailing confidence in your own council to judge anyone with viewpoints contrary to your devine intuition of the rightness of the crumbling consensus.

Wow, Sketch, I completely overlooked that! Like, completely. Like.

The truly beautiful part though is that you're here. A lot. Fine use of bandwidth, you ask me.

On the other hand, if you were using sulphates to hold the temperature down to plus 1.8 degrees C, in a world where the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere would otherwise give you plus 4 degrees C, then the effect on tropical rainfall would be small. And that is a far likelier scenario, because we are most unlikely to resort to large-scale geo-engineering until we are right at the threshold (around plus 2 degrees C) of runaway warming.

Mea Culpa

By Gwynne Dyer

Confession is good for the soul, and my soul is certainly in need of improvement, so here is a confession. I got it wrong in my article “Geo-Engineering in Trouble”, sent out on 15 January. I couldn’t be happier about that.

Got something wrong. Couldn't be happier. Did you see that Rick? Does it "seem" to you that this statement would be an indication of humility as a quality in the processes of one Gwynn Dyer? Or is it more likely by your process of knee jerk intuiting that he is weak, admitting to faulty conclusion being an indication of a lack of confidence in own council rather than a basic element of trial and error deductive reasoning.

No need to reinvent the wheel Rick, plenty of better people have been there done that well before you and Lord monk ton.

I've already shown you're full of sh#t...


At least I stood up and apologized as soon as I realized I was wrong in what I said. Because that's what honest folk do.


But full of sh#t? Yeah I know who's full of shit:


I do recall you posting a long post, where you repeatedly claimed to answer my questions. Unfortunately, you didn't include the questions, which made it nearly impossible to know what questions you were answering.

Im out the door to my fractional ownership project high over the Matanuska glacier. The hydrofracking on the well yielded approx. 1.3 gpm which along with 350' of in well storage is more than adequate without additional storage tanks. Today we're backfilling the foundation, all is going well. Before leaving,here is an article about China's immediate backpedaling of a low level functionaries announcement of CO2 cut commitments made last week.Read the reuters article titled Chinese officials plays down emission cut expectations. Excuse me if this info has already been posted.

Nice burn, K-man. That post was about 30 replies into our little pissing match. By that time, I had exposed a boatload of your lies and hollow boasts.

Did you ever find any examples of me purposely misrepresent what I've said ? From before May 14th. Like you repeatedly said you would.

How about quoting my opinions? From before May 14th. Not an opinion I directed you to or your interpretation of a posted cartoon. An actual quote of mine.

Lie.
I didn't quote a "blog" Sketch, try again.

Lie.
Wow Sketch, really?

This last post is funny because you start out with another distortion of what was previously said:

Let's review how this played out.

I commented about (mostly) believing scientific studies and about my skepticism of the media's coverage of climate related research.

No Sketch, no, that's not how this started. Why do you need to distort things so?

This started out when I made a post that ended with the statement "Looks like you get your views from non-scientific OpEds rather than scientific fact."

Lie.
You fully misrepresented what I said.
Why are you such a liar?

Plus marks for consistency.

BB, what's your point?

i,m jus say'in that the climate has changed alot in even the last 10,000 yrs. From that thawing the planet is bound to get warmer. We just started keeping record what 50 yrs ago? We also think that the planet has been at its cloosest distance to the sun in our eliptical orbit. That also would have to do something with our temperature. i presume as we move away its going to get cooler?

My point being, Nature is the predominate force. And Man is a dirty, stinky creature! But theres no need to rub guilt in his face..
