I haven’t written that much myself lately, mostly just a couple of pages where I post part of another article to bring it to your attention and maybe post a brief comment on it, or two. For that reason alone, I really wanted to do this, that and hopefully encourage some of you to join in and make these guys suffer even more for not using their critical thinking skills. You could also tell us about some other wingnut stupidity.
Now lets begin our story.
The epic battle started with this tweet. It had nothing to do with climate change, although it is certainly wishful thinking that ignores historical facts.
But of course they wouldn’t listen,
Vicious Babushka had a great reply, unfortunately and unsurprisingly these guys don’t get science, or they just don’t want to get it. Anyway its all some conspiracy for the government to gain more control over our lives. We should just ignore the fact that too many scientists would get nothing out of it. Not to mention what you’d have to gain as a climatologist, if you could debunk the idea that carbon dioxide and other green house gases are heating up the planet. Also we have to ignore how much easier things would be for everyone if anthropogenic climate change didn’t exist.
I was glad however to see that at least one other people had come along who saw the forest for the trees.
Off course FreedomDisciple doesn’t like facts. He prefers his anti science, anti government delusions.
His responses to me were no better.
Then I decided to deal with her nonsense.
I then directed Victoria to something I wrote, thinking that maybe when she saw how few scientist actually accepted climate change compared to those that don’t, she might actually change her mind.
Turns out that was wishful thinking. Turns out she doesn’t like our website either.
Then the anti science wingnuts answer to the Lone Ranger came down to take on us “tree huggers.” He came to shout off nuggets of “truth” to us from his steed of justice.
But I fired back with our greatest weapon, Neil Degrasse Tyson.
I’m betting if I actually googled what Jim Withrow1 suggested I’d get a bunch of wingnut sites talking about how “evil” us “tree huggers” are. Then he expected us to believe this.
Then JimWithrow1 the Wingnut Ranger showed us just how much he understood Climate science, not to mention what he thought was a “credible source”
Then as Vicious Babushka would say came the butt hurt.
And they still refused to accept the unpleasant reality of climate change.
I have yet to get a reply. I guess its just too much for them to embrace reality, when it would mean doing stuff they don’t like, like having to figure out how to cut green house gas emissions.
Update 6/1/14 at 6am : Added a link to The Hayden Planetarium’s page on Neil Degrasse Tyson
Update 6/1/14 at 7:52am : there was one tweet I forgot to include. The lone ranger returned and revealed the “real” culprit behind the “global warming conspiracy.”
No wonder so few scientists believe climate change is a hoax.
