More Sanity, I can't get enough.....

Lysiane Gagnon writes for La Press in Montreal (and weekly in the Globe) and frequently has opinions that bear repeating. Here from the Globe is her view of the Copenhagen Climate Change debate: A dose of skepticism is healthy.

  1. I guess I just can't help myself...

    I read her article and I hang my head in despair due to her ignorance.

    "The only sign of global warming I've seen..."

    GLOBAL is the key word. She's only seen one thing because she's only looked one place. She's 'skeptical' because she's only seen one data point? Pathetic.

    "there's always a new discovery that challenges accepted theories"

    Except when there isn't. Why is she not reporting on an up-and-coming ground-breaking theory? No, she's reporting 'wishful thinking'. Why do anything if one can make a wish and a new theory will appear to save us?

    "the UN panel would be more convincing if they had rested on an open scientific debate"

    Debate with who? Ignorant journalists with little to no understanding of climate science? If medicine finds a new theory for fighting cancer do we set up a debate between a cancer researcher and Joe, the plumber?

    Science has already had the debate for at least 50 years. The consensus has been reached. Only the losers of the science debate and those who fear 'the government' is trying to rob them of their liberty and money are desperately begging and pleading that their point of view be respected. It's over.

    By the way, Peter Sinclair (greenman3610) has another video up supporting my 50-year claim:

  2. "Debate with who? Ignorant journalists with little to no understanding of climate science? If medicine finds a new theory for fighting cancer do we set up a debate between a cancer researcher and Joe, the plumber?"

    Of course there is the problem. Here we have a complex issue that people need to understand (good luck with that)so that they can make a choice within a democracy (the problem with democracy - rule by the mob). If Ms. Gagnon is ignorant imagine the response from that average Joe. That's why Kyoto failed and Copenhagen will too. The fix is too complex, results to far in the future and it would cost too much now. People are rightly suspicious of governments and arrogant know-it-alls that seek to control more of their life. Its a natural reaction and its the correct raection for our society. What's plan B?
