Ok, so I have to do it, I`m adding Denial Depot to my blogroll in a new section, _The lighter side of catastrophe_.
I know I will probably regret it, but I just can`t help having a little fun while I`m over there…..
What terrifies me about Denial Depot is that those drongos have the right to vote. And the sheer numbers of them is why our attempts to forestall climate change are probably doomed.
“terrifies”??? Democracy and free speech “terrifies” you??Lay down on the couch and tell me all about it.
Where’s that couch? I am terrified too!
When democracy has brought us 8 years of GWB ending in the worst recession the world has ever known, and free speech obtained by water boarding, then I do not think that is going to save us from ourselves.
“our attempts to forestall climate change are probably doomed.”
Oh, how I long for the days of climate consistency.
I asked how them how to deal with a story on the Wilkins disintegration and they pointed me to complete nonsense and told me not to take the ‘bait.’
In the same thread someone is basically arguing there is no such thing as climate.
I can’t decide if it is a joke or is in earnest.
Lewis, it’s satire. If it’s hard to tell whether it’s a joke or not, then that’s either because the posters there are very clever at disguising their satire or else because it is very, very difficult to take the piss out of denialism given that it’s typically so ludicrous in the first place.
We do our best. Then one goes to read presumably ‘genuine’ comments at WUWT and one realises that the reality exceeds one’s best efforts to satirise it.
Ahhhh, now I feel really dumb. It is sort of like trying to mock Oprah then isn’t it? Or those SNL sketches where they mock the talk show The View.
I never find them funny because they always sound too much like the actual show.
Wow. That’s really well done. Frankbi has been outclassed. Most of those comments are real, though.. a decent example of woolblind confirmation bias, if ever I saw one.
