The Sureness of Global Warming Skeptics - Capital Weather Gang
To my eyes and ears, support for the global warming skeptic's point of view -- and the implicit and sometimes explicit denunciation of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) -- was unanimous and expressed without reservation by the conference's speakers, panel members and attendees.[From the comment section for the above post]
Steve's entire blog posting offers a valuable insight into the delusional mindset of the hardcore alarmists. What I find most amusing is Steve's extended whining about how we only presented one side of the issue.
Was Steve asleep or did he merely have his head buried in the sand when I stated from the microphone that we had invited Al Gore, James Hansen, Gavin Schmidt, Michael Mann, etc., to give presentations? Had they accepted our invitations, the conference would have had a very robust mix of alarmists vs. realists. But, as is almost always the case, the alarmists look for the nearest chair to hide under when there is a chance they may have to answer critical questions from an informed panel of peers.
If you were disappointed, Steve, that alarmists weren't filling slots on the panels, you have only your alarmist friends to blame.
