Whilst one wouldn't like to sink to the level of the naughty person who has vandalised Sunny's Wikipedia entry the other day... [Emphasis, but not entry, mine.]
He is one of the founding members of the New Generation Network. A group and manifesto set up to challenge the current discourse of race relations in the UK.He also smells like cat pee.
... one really cannot let some of his assertions go. The thing is that Sunny not only knows absolutely toss all about climate change, he also, quite obviously, knows bugger all about the IPCC or, indeed, the state of scientific publishing at the moment.
I suspect Iain Dale and others on the typical Tory right have missed the point entirely.
First, I am not a Tory. Second, your links to Dizzy and myself miss a crucial point: we know a fuck sight more about science than you do, sunshine.
I alluded to this point last year in the death of debate on CIF: the view taken by some producers that they can have a ‘balanced’ discussion by inviting two completely opposing viewpoints and watching the sparks fly. Looks like Doughty Street might be going down the same route.
And what else would you suggest, Sunny? Get two people on who agree with each other? That makes for tedious television. Oh, is it because you share Dave "ignorant fuckwit" Miliband's assertion that the results are "unambiguous"? In which case, you are a fuckwit.
The reason why Greenpeace is right in avoiding such programmes with such participants is because it gives the false impression that there is still a debate to be had and that it could go either way.
Sunny, you lack-wit buffoon, in science there is always a debate to had; that is how science progresses. Go and look up falsifiability, you fucking numbskull.
No. When 90% of the evidence supports one position then such a ‘balanced debate’ only creates a false impression.
As does your fucking ignorant post, you stupid fuck. What you ignorant cretins don't seem to understand is that the IPCC has not yet actually published the "evidence". To describe you as a stupid, fuckwitted bigot seems almost charitable at this point, frankly. No, very charitable, actually. Fuck off.
What ignorant arseholes like Sunny don't understand—because the politicians don't want you to know and because journos are too lazy and ill-informed to do any decent research these days—is that the debate is far from over. The excellent Bishop Hill has been cataloguing some of the extremely dodgy practises of climate scientists; the main contentions are their cherry-picking of data, their unwillingness to publish their data and the fact that the supposed concensus doesn't fucking exist.
And the IPCC is far from being any better. Here's a comment that I left on Pickled Politics.
On a serious note, no it does not. Because the IPCC has not actually published the evidence yet. It is getting feedback from the four – count them: FOUR – “summaries for policy-makers” before it publishes the data.
This is not really usual scientific publishing procedure, believe it or not.
I get sick of repeating myself, really, hence the lazy cut and paste job.
Other than in the world of loons such as Melanie Phillips, another eminent scientist, most people have slowly woken up to the fact that we have gone past climate change to global warming and that it is mostly a man-made phenomena.
Fucking hell, you really are a sententious twat, aren't you? No, Sunny, we haven't, much as the politicians and media would like you to think that.
Just as a matter of common sense, how much of the atmosphere is made up of CO2? It's just below 0.04%. Oh, and...
Global warming on Neptune’s moon Triton as well as Jupiter and Pluto, and now Mars has some scratching their heads over what could possibly be in common with the warming of all these planets.
I simply cannot be arsed to go over this shit again: just search The Kitchen for "climate change" and you will find all the links you need. These should, at the very least, make you think properly about the whole issue rather than joining in with the kind of knee-jerk, ill-informed crap that Sunny Hundal comes out with.
That Channel 4 airs unadulterated rubbish such as The Great Climate Change Swindle doesn’t change anything.
It always amuses me that those who have a problem with that programme, which featured a large number of scientists giving their scientific opinion, seem happy to accept Al Gore's piece of shit film without question. Let me fucking remind you: Al Gore has no scientific qualifications whatso-fucking-ever. OK? 'Kay.
In fact there is so much disinformation out there that New Scientist has an extensive section dedicated just to rebutting those idiotic conspiracy theories.
Unfortunately, the New Scientist lost any credibility when it embraced, uncritically, the Stern Review which, as most of us know by now, was so fucking flawed—or, rather, deliberately deceitful—that it really is of no use at all. If they couldn't be fucking arsed to look at the report (which they very obviously didn't) then they do not deserve any kind of respect. Or credibility.
Of course, wankers like Hundal will happily accept anything that the New Scientist says because it has the word "scientist" in the title.
Anyone still willing to believe this is all a myth quite rightly deserves to be ignored by charity workers who have better things to do with their time.
Anyone who believes that scientific theories should not be questioned at every opportunity is a lack-wit arsebiscuit of the very first water and should probably stick to writing about what they know.
So, in Sunny's case, he should just shut the fuck up because a careful reading of his articles reveals that he knows fuck all about anything, especially about science.
