A Few Things Ill Considered

Move over Marc Morano, hello Denial Depot!

Now this is good stuff!

A big thanks to Eli Rabett for finding this site!

Here are a few favorite highlights:

Why are the so-called experts silent about all the snow that is everywhere?

Well it’s most likely because they are all shut indoors all day with their climate models. That’s right, they are so busy playing Climate Tron that they haven’t the foggiest idea what is going on outside anymore. They don’t see the REAL world that REAL people like you and me see

When so-called “experts” in their “peer reviewed journals” say one thing, we dare the impossible and find imaginative ways to believe something else entirely.

Perhaps an overuse of exponentials is why a minority of climate “scientists” don’t comprehend how ludicrious co2 warming really is. If they just compare 5 digits with 5 digits for Sun vs CO2 they might not contemplate how massive the sun is compared to an atom of co2.

As well grounded climate skeptic bloggers we immediately become suspicious of this record because it shows a warming trend. We know that the surface record shows only Urban Heat Island bias and AC Unit Warming bias in this period. Yet neither of these effects will be picked up by satellites, so why do the satellites still show warming? Something is wrong.

The #1 tool of the avid skeptic is imagination. So lets put our imagination to use and gather together some seeds of doubt. With luck some of these seeds will survive to grow into full blown talking points.

The scientific consensus is that in 1200AD the climate was excruciatingly hot. Plagues and disease swamped the world and people were dying of heat exhaustion. The situation got so bad that the Vikings moved to a large snow covered island north of Iceland to escape the heat. The ice on this island subsequently melted and so the Vikings called it Greenland. Greenland soon became the wine and farming capital of the world.

Another time-waste hazard, but major congratulations are due to its brilliant author!

    Another proud graduate of the Rush Limbaugh School of Climate Science.

    As usual, it’s hard to distinguish well-done parody from the real stupid.

    There are no facts, just informed ideas.

    Brilliant. It is well written satire akin to The Onion.

    The author obviously has a knack for sarcasm and experience slugging through the muck of the Echo Chamber Blogocave of Greater Wingnuttia. It’s very reminiscent of this, except far broader in scope.

    The real proof of any Poe, though, lies in the comments. Take a gander – that, right there, is some fine crankery.

    Hey, did y’all know the sun is a lot bigger than a carbon atom?

    I’m sure that means something…

    Take that, you scientists!

    I thought this had to be a joke. I think I’m caught in a Poe’s law quandary.

    I suspect it is satire, just like Gerlich and Tscheuschner. Only a bit more subtle.

    It must be a joke.

    At first I wasn’t sure, as there really are people in cyberspace who are that stupid. This clinched it for me: “If you haven’t already read Blog Scientist Jennifer Marohasy’s blog take a look. It seems to be modelled on DenialDepot, although in my opinion a little less coherent.” Question is, is Jennifer Marohasy’s blog also a satire?

    I’ll drop a mention of denial depot my MMCC denying brother-in-law, and wait and see if he quotes any of the “facts” back at me.

    Here’s a good one….in the comments to the post “Is the Oregon Petition too Selective?”, people rant about how you have to have a science degree to sign the petition and how the Oregon Petition is actually a “warmist plot” to suppress the voices of “blog scientists” and plumbers.
