Global Warming Denial, Part 96
Well known finance blogger Barry Ritholtz had this to say about a recent conference he attended:
I have been speaking with a number of the other presenters here in private. One of the speakers here claimed that there is no such thing as Global Warming.
Now, I want to repeat what he said: Not that the global weather is a complex, variable system, or that we cannot tell with a great deal of certainty the precise impact mankind has had, or we are unsure of what future results might be if do this or that. Rather, the claim that temperatures around the globe have simply not gone up.
I don’t even bother responding to these comments anymore. […]
Barry embeds this NYT graphic to help him make his point.
It looks like Barry is treating the hard-core climate change deniers like LGF does to hard-core creationists - it just isn’t worth discussing a topic with someone whose mind is welded shut to data coming from the outside.
