The “tactics” were worked out by the creationists decades ago. Their playbook is full of them.

The most used tactic is to confuse by obfuscation. By using enough multi-syllable words they hope their audience will miss the PHYSICS FAIL.

Anyway, good luck. I can’t believe that there are still people out there who try to get around the greenhouse effect by mumbo-jumbo.

You are quite right that obfuscation is the overall tactic. These people send up endless clouds of BS in the hopes of falsely stealing the credibility of actual science while muddying the issue to the extent that folks who will not look into the science on their own can feel comfortable in concluding what they want to conclude in the first place. It is exactly the same crap that the evolution deniers use when they try to be pseudo-scientific.

The fact that Mr. Reisinger is using all of these tactics is not a surprise - nor should it surprise you that he is actually stupid enough to attempt deny that CO2 is a GHG that causes warming.

The important thing to do is to nail these cretins to the wall on their massive physics fails when they make them.

This idiot does not understand energy conservation or the fact that vacuums don’t conduct or convect. This automatically puts him in the lowest class of failure. Since these morons do not have anything like actual data or analysis to back up their outrageous BS, they can only make arguments through appealing to their own authority and the authority of shared delusion with their intended audience.

Stripping them of that authority by pointing out that they would fail grade-school science does the job well.

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
