There’s always something in the data. There’s always a caveat, a preface, some qualification, some uncertainty. There’s an explanation. It’s all a hoax.

Do you engage with climate deniers or ignore them? Are they legitimately questioning science, or are they merely trolling?

As long as politicians pay attention to them, we probably need to push back. But it seems so ridiculous sometimes.

But even dealing with the politicians seems to be pointless sometimes. There’s this, from U.S. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher:

ROHRABACHER: Just so you know, global warming is a total fraud and it is being designed by—what you’ve got is you’ve got liberals who get elected at the local level want state government to do the work and let them make the decisions. Then, at the state level, they want the federal government to do it. And at the federal government, they want to create global government to control all of our lives. That’s what the game plan is. It’s step by step by step, more and bigger control over our lives by higher levels of government. And global warming is that strategy in spades.… Our freedom to make our choices on transportation and everything else? No, that’s gotta be done by a government official who, by the way, probably comes from Nigeria because he’s a UN government official, not a US government official.

Rep. Rohrabacher is a senior member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. Seriously. The video is here:
