This is hilarious: Warmist Bob Ward argues that former IPCC lead author Richard Lindzen isn't qualified to talk about climate science

Twitter / ret_ward: .@mehdirhasan But why have ...
Bob Ward ‏@ret_ward .@mehdirhasan Yet another example of the media hosting a falsely balanced debate about climate science instead of covering the real issues.
Mehdi Hasan Mehdi Hasan ‏@mehdirhasan  @ret_ward 1) Not true at all. Its not a 'balanced debate'. Its a fair but tough interrogation of his views. I'm not neutral on this.
Bob Ward Bob Ward ‏@ret_ward .@mehdirhasan But why have you made Lindzen the focus of the debate? He no longer contributes to the science and is irrelevant to policy.
Mehdi Hasan Mehdi Hasan ‏@mehdirhasan  @ret_ward But he's not irrelevant to the world, is he? You (and me) not liking his views doesn't make him disappear, does it? Or his claims?
Mehdi Hasan Mehdi Hasan ‏@mehdirhasan @ret_ward Which 'sceptic' would you like me to interview? He's more credible than the rest. Or is your position, no intvs with them, ever?
Ben Pile Ben Pile ‏@clim8resistance Oh, look, Bob Ward @ret_ward trying to close down debate and discussion again. The self-appointed censor has no shame. @mehdirhasan
