Disagreeing with the climate change establishment, as many scientists in the field do, is akin to holocaust denial?
To which Sunny replied with an astonishingly ignorant assertion.
No I think its rather like believing in creationism.
What the fuck? Seriously, this is just insane.
Whether or not you agree with my assertion that anthropogenic climate change is not happening doesn't terribly matter; however, readers of The Kitchen will know that I have at least looked at the data. And there is relevant data.
The idea that disagreeing with the AGW concensus is akin to believing in creationism—a theory which requires a god (for which there is no evidence) and a total contradiction of a heavily-supported theory (evolution)—is quite simply one of the most astoundingly stupid remarks that I have seen in quite some time.
Now, you can take what you like from the AGW data—which in itself is an indicator of its ambivalence—but to assert that anyone who does not believe the prevailing "concensus" is like believing in a theory, the very basis of which is entirely unsupported, is gross and, yes, irresponsible idiocy.
