One facet I love about BMG is its capacity for debate (most of the time.) Although I hardly ever agree with the political views of its bloggers, there was always the room to debate.
Except on “global warming,” a term since changed to “climate change.” I was always skeptical of climate change, or at least its man-made caused. And for that I have been called a “denier”, a term meant to invoke something more heinous … “holocaust denier.” Maybe not on BMG so much, but certainly around town.
No debate, not even dismissal of my position, but a personal attack.
I wonder, given the stunning revelations from the leaked East Anglia emails and subsequent academic scandal spreading throughout the scientific community, how do proponents of climate change here at BMG respond to what reads like a full confession by climatologist Phil Jones?
