Reference: The naysayers are betraying each one of us, Bangkok Post, June 30, 2009
The oped column arguing on the side of the global warmists (The naysayers are betraying each one of us, Bangkok Post, June 30, 2009) appears to have the same kind of desperate tone one finds in all global warming articles these days as we get closer and closer to the Copenhagen meeting and as data to support the man made global warming hypothesis become harder and harder to come by. For example, the only piece of data offered in the column is that the ice caps are melting even as recent measurements reveal that they are not (see for example The Australian, April 18, 2009). As usual, the author falls back on ad hominem and what is hyped as "scientific consensus". Unlike democracy, science is not made with consensus but with a skeptical mind, critical thinking, and unbiased data collection and analysis.
