Climate Change Sceptics:

Bring on the climate change sceptics! It certainly makes the debate more colourful and exciting. It certainly sells more newspapers, ups TV ratings and increases web site eyeballs.

Certainly, the climate change sceptics language, phrases and even their countenance are often quite extraordinary. 

But perhaps they have gone too far.

While these incidents are extraordinary, it does not address the real question at hand. It distracts from it.

So here is my question (I call it the child’s question).

How’s the weather lately? Is it the same? Is it getting better?

Even the anecdotal evidence is there. Every time there is a severe weather event, people affected by it describe it as the worst ever. Ignore the statistical evidence, but anecdotally people notice!

But statistically, why are weather records are tumbling like the Climate Olympics?

It might be just me but I don’t hear any facts from the sceptics. Which leads me to my real point. In the climate change debate, these sceptics in fact fail the basic rules of debate. Good debaters criticise the opposition and then present facts to support their case.

These people don’t. Perhaps they should. Perhaps then we can have a real debate.

One thought on “Climate Change Sceptics:

  1. I totally agree! the fact the climate sceptics are preapred to use deciet and even fraud, shows they have lost the debate, they KNOW their side is wrong! Unfortunately it is usually trace back tog reed, a commercial interest protecting it cashflow!
