Potholer54 is recommended to subscribe to on YouTube. A wonderful individual.

Sounds like when a person goes for a PhD in chemistry and they don't get 100%, but only 99%. Technically of course they were wrong, in some sense, but right enough for their actual conclusions to matter, rather than the mere admission of error.

The Australian & Co seem to be wanting to brand scientists on the forehead with a capital "A" for adulterer, or perhaps Atheist or some such.

And Rupacious has energy investments of the non-renewable type.

In Israel, yet.

I fail to see how that could sway any reporting. Much.

It's hard in primary school when the teacher won't accept that you're right.

Tony says- higher temperatures "might even be beneficial" because "far more people die in cold snaps".
What the hell. Are you serious? Sick, ignorant bastard.

Gizmodo gives a platform to educated people to rebut The Tones.

Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott - who is still giving public speeches - just told an audience at the Global Warming Policy Foundation in London "It's climate change policy that's doing harm. Climate change itself is probably doing good; or at least, more good than harm."

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.

The labor party seems to lack the intellectual capacity to take on Tony.
