Climate change deniers don’t understand expertise
It’s a no-brainer – want a reliable report – employ experts.
The ‘left liberal slime’ conspiracy
So how do the local climate change denial cabal over at Climate Conversations Group dismiss this report (and dismiss it they must – that’s how they pass their time. Dismissing science and slandering scientists)?
Andy (familiar to many readers here for his sock-puppet behaviour) starts mildly with:
‘based on current climate models -is all I need to take away from this ‘report’ from the World Bank’
He obviously has no idea of the important role models can play in bringing understanding to complex situations. These guys just rely on anything they can use to discredit the science.
Then he continues:
‘The last time I heard, banks were in the business of lending money. I didn’t think they had any expertise in determining the sensitivity of the atmosphere to carbon dioxide. Unless, of course, they have a financial interest in, say, carbon trading.’
No – he doesn’t understand the report commissioning process does he. He seems to think that bankers in pin-striped suits did the research and wrote the report.
But no – it’s more basic than that. Doesn’t matter if they were wearing pin-striped suits or white lab coats. They are all part of a world-wide conspiracy and he hates them:
‘Yes I understand that the World Bank is yet another part of the left liberal slime that uses Climate Change to further its agenda. Do you think I have any respect for these organisations at all?’
Poor Andy! How does he manage to get by in this complex world?
