We’ve had a few examples here lately of crazy creationist talk, but some of the climate change denialists are just as bad. Look at this example of someone arguing that greenhouse gases can’t cause global warming:
Moreover, the actual trapping of heat cannot raise an object’s temperature in the first place. It only slows down heat loss.
It might be literally true, but it’s operationally false in this case — that argument only works if there is no internal source of heat and there is no external input. If you slow down heat loss to a point where it is less than heat gain, you will get an increase in temperature.
This kook must be one of those people who likes to wear a fur coat on a hot summer day.
