There’s a reasonably new website, uknowispeaksense, run by an outspoken proponent of anthropogenic global warming. For those who haven’t had the pleasure of exchanging comments with the proprietor, Mike is an extremely opinionated, self-described “research scientist working in an ecology based discipline”, “wildlife ecologist and university lecturer” who lacks reason and logic.
For some reason unknown to me, Mike made the unsound decision to start commenting on my blog last week. Refer to uknowispeaksense’s four comments starting with the one of August 17, 2012 at 1:26 am on the thread of my Blog Memo to James Hansen Regarding GISS Southern Hemisphere Land Surface Temperature Data.
Mike must be extremely bored. I’m not. I’m trying to edit my new book.
There are Rules at uknowispeaksense’s blog. Rule #1 reads:
Keep it relevant. Getting off topic will result in responses not being posted.
Unfortunately for me, Mike is also a hypocrite. He doesn’t follow the rules he established for his blog when he visits mine. In his first off-topic comment today, he asked my opinion about Joe Bastardi’s latest Arctic sea ice prediction. Refer to uknowispeaksense’s August 21, 2012 at 3:38 am comment. My reply was, I don’t pay attention to Arctic sea ice, other than to see if I can kayak and waterski at the North Pole. So far, there’s still too much ice. A couple more years of the natural warming we’ve seen since 1975 should do the trick.
That got uknowispeaksense’s dander up. Today I was Mike’s Denier Comment of the Day. Click on the link. I especially enjoy it when he calls my graphs “dodgy”. Dodgy?
uknowispeaksense, like so many of his ilk, has proven that he is incapable of disputing what’s presented in my posts, that he doesn’t have the wherewithal to download the data and confirm or contradict my findings. Instead, he calls my graphs “dodgy”. His ignorance knows no bounds.
Well, enough with my little diversion from proofreading. Back to work I go.
You come back now, uknowispeaksense, ya hear!
