The distortion of science for ideological purposes has a long history, and the results are generally ugly.
WHAT GLOBAL WARMING?
Lubos Motl has picked up on Spencer and Christie's latest lower troposphere data which shows an absence
of global warming.
CO2 emissions will rapidly be distributed over the planet so clearly this northern hemispheric warming has nothing at all to do with the earth's atmospheric chemistry. Rather it points to a proliferation of human life in the northern hemisphere - and any proliferation of life has to be a good thing.
One other point I have noticed recently is the ploy by AGW proponents to invoke the moral oblication to reduce emissions. Moral obligation?
Quite clearly AGW is not self-evident - for if it were this blog would not exist, and as a result of not being self evident, AGW proponents need to persuade us with argument that global warming is real. If it were real, no argument would be necessary!
