Denier posts of the week - Games Deniers Play

Sou | 3:25 PM 1 Comment so far

Don't ask me to give up the 'good life'

I'll start the ball rolling with a couple of posts from rambunctious climate denier who goes by the handle 'Hanrahan'.  (If you are a subscriber, here is the thread.)

Step One: Politely asking for information - but make sure there's a sting in the tail so your fellow deniers recognise that you are just pretending (aka a shameless troll):


Step Two: Build a straw man and play to deniers' fear and greed

(Of course, the longer he and his fellow deniers insist on polluting the atmosphere, the less of a good life he and future generations will have.)

Steps 3 to 10 or more: You reject science, in fact you refuse to read anything that has the slightest whiff of legitimacy - so you can't post about science.  You can't throw sticks and stones on the internet, so names will have to do

A typical thread dominated by a number of silly old men who reject science because they find it too much of a threat, particularly to their world view.

Instead of commenting as "Anonymous", could you please comment using "Name/URL" and your name, initials or pseudonym or whatever. It requires no registration and is just the same as "Anonymous" but with the advantage that you can use a unique name rather than being lumped in with all the other anonymice. You can leave the "URL" box blank. This isn't mandatory. It's been requested by a regular HotWhopperite to help readers keep track of who says what, (You can of course comment using OpenID or Google or WordPress or whatever, which are forms of authentication.)
