Why Doesn’t Anyone Listen Any More?

…is the latest wail from the pro-GW camp.  Perhaps is was the deliberate distortions revealed in Climategate? The whitewashed investigations? Or, maybe it is constant censoring of alternative views.

What do I mean? Here is the headline:

As the article itself points out, even UK pro-GW researchers do not believe 2010 was the warmest year (and, I agree, my post is below). Second, when people tried to make that and other pertinent points, their comments were deleted:

Of course, this is also the practice at realclimate, climateprogress, and many other pro-GW sites. No dissent allowed!

So, it is understandable that after incorrectly telling us that NYC would be underwater by now, the UK winters would be snowless, the rain had disappeared from Australia, record U.S. hurricanes were on the way (no major hurricanes in the U.S. since 2005, record low tropical storms worldwide), etc., etc., that people would eventually tune them out.

It again proves the public at large is a lot smarter than many scientists believe.

  1. You are absolutely right and I thank you for pointing out my error. I inadvertently left of the word "major" which I have now placed in the posting in bold face type.

    Thanks for pointing this out.
