A few sites I've stumbled across recently....
I agree with you it is sad to see so many closed minds on a site such as this. As far as I know the II law of thermodynamics has never been violated. Heat energy can only move down a thermal gradient. Water will not run up hill.
"vulnerable countries demand 1.5C warming limit "is what I am seeing on Twiotter I guess some NGO is stoking it up
Short blog post on the Today programme propaganda about cyclones this morning.
Unfortunately I heard that piece, but missed Ridley later.
Mike Jackson I'll use that, thanks!

Mike Jackson, yeah, you have to estimate where they are on the scale between gene splicing and bleeding out the bad humours.
Ridley's on Radio 4 now ...saying you have to get something that works against fossil fuels , yet we don't have anything yet
Interviewer Niick Robinson keeps shouting "but you are not a scientist !"
Ridley: makes a claim biofuels kill 190,000 year ....cooking over open fires indoors kills 3m
"you own a coal mine after all"He didn't contradict that..he continued his point ..the prog was just closing
TinyCO2In reality the answer to the "if your doctor told you ..." argument ought to be "When climate scientists know one-tenth as much about climate as doctors know about the human body, I might just start listening to them." It works, believe me. You can tell by the way people splutter and then shuffle off mumbling!
Seems to me that few on this site have read Fourier, in either French or English. Seems to me that people on this site see 'doubt of greenhouse effect' = 'skydragon', and therefore dismiss.
Because when 100 separate 'scientists' have told you that they have the reason why radiative physics is wrong, and you look at them, and they've made fundamental physics mistakes in every case, then the 101st better present their evidence pretty quickly and succinctly, and leave off the pro-active ad-homs, if they don't want written off themselves.
Phillip - sometime ago on this site I asked Ridley for the scientific references underpinning his views but he was unable to provide anything of substance. Despite appreciating him raising the value of alternative policy views, I have since taken his scientific pronouncements with a pinch of salt.
