    Poor grammar too with that ‘,’ between ‘Fraud’ and ‘Deception’

    Uh, wrong.

    There are so many real things to attack in that book; no need to invent more.

    Indeed, the criticism is petty and stupid, a sort of grammatical Dunning-Kruger effect.

    OK. So I may have erred, never having known about the use of a comma in this way. BTW it still looks wrong in the context.

    So to describe me as creating a ‘grammatical Dunning-Kruger effect’ is just as petty, and stupid, as you, think, my, error, was.

    Enough commas for you? 😉

    But then that is one of the ‘entertaining’ things about ianam, always a bit OTT with the vitriol. This even though I agree with your position on any debate

    And lest you get me wrong, I am one of the so called warmists having studied and taken on board much of the science that underpins our understanding of AGW and of its reality.

    Whatever, sorry for the unintended distraction.

    That is what I call a big scandal!
