Jennifer Marohasy has posted a list of the “ten worst blog posts“. Tamino and Eli Rabett are crowing are crowing because they got number one and two and the best I could do was number six. Cohenite, the guy who compiled the list, had earlier compiled a list of the “ten best climate research papers” that, no fooling, included Chilingar. So you can imagine that his new list is of similar quality and it does not disappoint.
Cohenite says these posts are the ten worst because:
they reveal that at least part of this debate about anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is not about science, but its suppression.
In other words, these are blog posts in jack boots.
The closest Cohenite comes to writing anything in support of his claim that these blog posts are suppressors is when he gives Tamino the number one spot for charging Joe D’Aleo with perjury. Except that Tamino didn’t charge them with perjury. Look at what he wrote:
If Sheppard’s post or D’Aleo’s graph were sworn testimony in a court of law, I’d charge them with perjury.
Cohenite doesn’t seem to understand conditionals. Tamino is accusing them of dishonesty, not perjury. And this is typical — Cohenite doesn’t seem able to understand the posts that claims are suppressing the debate. For another example, his take on my post on Lomborg is
It seems Deltoid has a special loathing of Lomborg. His sins appear to be: he argues conditions are better than ever for more of us; interference with nature does not always produce bad results; and AGW preventative measures are a waste of time and resources; and he hates polar bears.
But what I actually said was wrong with Lomborg was this:
But what Lomborg really does is cherry pick and systematically misrepresent the science.
And I went on to give specific examples. But I shouldn’t complain KÃ¥re Fog’s website on Lomborg (which isn’t even a blog) made number five on the list, merely for listing hundreds of errors and flaws in Lomborg’s work. Cohenite doesn’t even try to dispute any of them.
And as usual, the comments to Cohenite’s post are full of the usual Marohasy-approved abuse.
