Thuggish Climate Thugs, Cont'd

Glenn Ricketts

In response to Peter Wood's piece on Climate Thuggery, the CHE has run a rebuttal by John Mashey and Robert S. Coleman. The comments thread suggests that standards of decorum and civility still need a lot of work when we're talking about AGW. 

It's curious how so many of Peter's critics simply can't seem to address his central argument about the bad manners of so many defenders of the impending-climate-catastrophe hypothesis, on which he takes no position. They're back again, though, with still more tediously priggish, doctrinaire, often screechy disquisitions, thundering why they're right about it all, and why somebody who isn't a climatologist has no right to discuss the "real science," etc., etc., etc. Go figure.
