The Bishop on the Plate

19 March 2013
Climate change

Phil Plait, the ultra conformist blogger at Bad Astronomy, is diagnosed at the Bishop's quarters. It seems he objected to an article in the Mail on Sunday last week, where environmental journalist David Rose pointed out global warming has been somewhat amiss in recent years – but instead of looking into the science the Plate got all preachy and regurgitated the writ as doomsaying believers would have it, stuffed down our throats, bones and all. Why does he feel he has to spout the official and unctious line all the time.

The Phil Plait doctrine of the faithful is at http://mobile.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2013/03/18/global_warming_de… … and the worst of it is that he thinks he has debunked the pseudo science of climate denial by quoting the pseudo science of climate scientists (and their bag of tricks). The bouncing plates are at www.bishop-hill.net/blog/2013/3/19/more-rose-reaction.html  … and continue to bounce around the comments. He appears to have gone to an ultra warmist blog and picked up a list of things to refute Rose – most of which are hilarious. Does he go to other people to get his debunking ammunition to fire at various other science disciplines – and where did he pick up his saintly put-downs of the likes of you know who.

Meanhwile, Steve McIntyre is still whittling away at http://climateaudit.org/2013/03/19/bent-their-core-tops-in/ … but all this is beyond Phil Plait, he is hyperventilating on the consensus (even though it is falling apart), and the Green NGOs have had a slapping at the hands of Donna Laframboise – see http://nofrakkingconsensus.com/2013/03/19/indonesian-official-compares-w…
