William Haas, currently on the Water vapor is the most powerful greenhouse gas thread.

Strong trolling tendencies:  ignorant of the science and the scientific method, headstrong, failure to listen, unhealthy dose of D-K, etc.

 

I'm starting to make typo's and errors in judgement; I'm tired & going to bed.

As ever, if you have to moderate out one of his statements that I've replied to, feel free to delete my reply!  Doesn't look too promising on his ability to be open to reason...

Question - is this William Haas from St. Louis MO?

If so, he may be a Congressional candidate (http://www.votebillhaas.com/index.html). Whoever he is, he certainly doesn't appear to have a background in the sciences.

IMHO, everyone is doing a great job of dealing politely and patiently with William.  Kep it iup, but I suspect Dan will ahve to trottt out his standard wanrings if this keeps up.

I suspect that he knows much better and is trolling.  "Concern knowledge trolling" is what I would call this--but someone probably has a better term.  You arrive on the scene asking "innocent' and "simple" questions, but without accepting the answers to existing questions and then just posting more diversionary questions...ad infinitum.

Maybe someone should ask if he is the Congressional candidate, no harm in that is there?

Daniel,

"Nimrod"

LOL, my impression too now that I know that tidbit.  You might need to trott out your standard warnings today, he is quite persistent in his trolling now scatter shot of "innocent" questions, and i do not think he has yet acknowledged (or agreed with) any of the information/science provided to him, he just moves on to the next red herring.

nimrod  

1. A mighty hunter. Now chiefly used in this sense outside the United States.
2. A slow-witted person.

 

The Biblical definition is "A mighty hunter before the Lord".  As in someone annointed by God, in His service (a saver of souls).  The latter definition is the appropriate 20th/21st century colloquial definition.  And the sense (derisive) in which I meant it.
