Climate science denier (knee) jerks

HotWhoppers, Monckton and His Scaredy Cat Prey

Werner Brozek at WUWT claims that "at least" means "at most"! - the comments section of this article provide a pretty good example of an attempted Gish Gallop by a science denier, with circular arguments, strawmen, ignoring lost arguments, repetition, red herrings, spaghetti tactics, half-truths and completely false claims, inconsistent arguments and other silliness in a dogged determination to reject the fact that human emissions of greenhouse gases are causing the world to warm faster than ever.  It could form the basis of an exercise for a class on critical thinking.
