2011-06-08 06:33:09Deniers Agree That Section


A commenter, Martin, on the "Tony Abbot denies..." thread has suggested something I think has merit... a list of arguments that various deniers agree with.  His example was actual climate scientists (such as Lindzen and Spencer) who agree that CO2 will not fall to the surface of the earth because it is heavier than air, and GHG theory does not violate the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics.

This has come up fairly often recently (particularly in the 2nd Law debate).  it would help to get a lot of the useless noise dealt with to simply say "look, even among deniers, no reasonable person agrees with your position, so what the heck are you doing?"

This would be particularly valuable in more esoteric areas, when, for example, Spencer didn't like Lindzen and Choi 2009.

It's something to consider.
