I must share this with you. This was a most angry letter from a warmer, a global warming and/or climate change nutcase. And as letters go, it’s one of the best. Snarky, rebarbative and nasty. I’m his bête noire and his poison prose brilliantly addresses such. It’s great. Great, indeed. And please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you can top this. Please, I love hearing from you.
Now, the letter. He (I presume it was a he) was most upset over my suggestions that the anthropogenic causation models pushed by Al Gore and his Maurice Strong minions in order to establish carbon taxing and the like were bogus. He never listened to what I said. He just responded via a Pavlovian obeisance to his religion. The religion of the warmer/changer. Now it’s my term to be a prick: this feller’s clueless. Missing the entire point. If I thought that Rick Perry was shilling for Gardasil and Merck (as he was) that’s not the same as saying that Gardasil was a dangerous product (as it is) or that vaccines don’t work. Goober here missed the point.
But this well-intended but clueless Gomer yet again shows how people confuse a distrust of the notion of using carbon trading as a means to address perceived anthropogenic warming causation with a basis to initiate carbon trading.
You have gone off the deep end Lionel, and proven yourself to be an ignorant jackass. The science supports anthropogenic causes for climate change. The influence of the sun is a factor, but not as significant as human activity in recent decades. This isn’t just Al Gore talking, it’s science.
I used to love your show Lionel, but in your isolation you have become the audio equivalent of Howard Hughes, increasingly paranoid and out of touch with reality.
Please enjoy today’s podcast. It covers myriad issues as you can imagine. Please note also my indictment against the arrest of kids today for the most mindlessly of trivial reasons. What ever happened to common sense?
