  1. Unfortunately, Billy doesn't have any answers, and, as Ellen has successfully argued, he doesn't understand the questions and their relevance to science. He doesn't grasp any of it. J
  2. Ya gotta love the fact that they still think that their Narratives™ are working. J
  3. For the sake of tidiness, I'm reposting this post here: In an attempt at conversation and graciousness, I’ll give it another shot, and ask my questions in yet another way: What was the hypothesis that has been “settled"? Wasn't it that mankind’s activities are the primary cause of global warming — that global warming is happening due to mankind’s activities, and it would not be happening without those activities? That’s what it seems to have been? Was it that if mankind produces X amount of CO2 over time period Y, then the result must be temperature Z, and temperature Z will mean cha
  4. I think we've learned that climate isn't an important issue. It's now much less interesting than Q, or, really, any other subject. It was THE shit. But now? Meh. J
  5. That was really slick what you did there, Billy! Heh. I didn't even notice! And thanks for the Phil-like schoolmarm guidance and encouragement. J
  6. This old piece popped up for me today. Truth: "There’s an old legal proverb: If you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. If you have the law on your side, argue the law. If you have neither, attack the witness. When proponents of a scientific consensus lead with an attack on the witness, rather than on the arguments and evidence, be suspicious." ----- Politics Disguised as Science: When to Doubt a Scientific ‘Consensus’ Anyone who has studied the history of science knows that scientists are not immune to the non-rational dynamics of the herd. iStockphoto
  7. I think her sense of entitlement and self-importance is possibly enough to give it one more go. Another possibility is trying to pass the entitlement and self-importance to the idiot daughter? J
  8. She's fishing for compliments. She wants to be begged to run. Please save us, Hillary! J
  9. She's better than Billy at serving up tasty steamed octopus! Dayyam! People are DYING!!!! Fuckers need to be punished right goddamned now for future catastrophes! We can't wait. Immediate pain to the grups for what they done to Greta's childhood and her future of doom. J
  10. Tee hee hee! Billy, I know that you don't have answers to any of the questions that I've asked many times here, so I won't ask them again in this post. What I'm currently wondering is if you understand the questions yet, and their relevance. Have you put any effort into grasping what you're being asked? I've mentioned in a previous post somewhere that I don't think that you have the cognitive ability to grasp the relevance of the questions, much like how Merlin can't grasp the Aristotle's Wheel issue, and how Bob can't grasp the South Pole Travel puzzle. What I wonder is if you even want
  11. But then who will fix our pretend crises? If we culturally cancel him, then we’ll only get to punish him, but if we forgive him and keep him in power, he’ll help us punish millions.
  12. And there are people advocating the idea that Kavanaugh should be impeached and removed from the bench because he is accused of having his dick pushed into someone else's hand by someone else.
  13. Was it Trump who rubbed Kavanaugh’s wiener on a girl’s hand? Inquiring minds need to know.

  15. Um, one of the accusations is that Brett's friends pushed his dick into a girl's hand. What does that even mean? The press doesn't seem to have any curiosity. J
  16. Heh. I hadn’t visited Billy’s Twitter page in a while. The stuff he’s interested in and reposting is instructive. It seems that there are quite a lot of false things that he savors and needs to believe. J
  17. Yes. The issue is so important, and such a scary threat, that we can’t wait for stupid old fashioned true science to be practiced. We have to use the new special emergency “science.” You can’t expect consistency. 9 to 16 years of unpredicted, unexplained “pause” or “hiatus”? Heh, an insignificant blip. 1 year of arctic melt? Ha! See? Incontrovertible proof of the Doom! We need to practice such double standards, and proudly, because, as MSK said in the above, the survival of humanity is at stake! J
  18. Billy's mistake was that he went and done got religion. His M.O. had always been stinging snark, but in the past he limited himself to attacking Others' silly beliefs, while not revealing any that he held himself. Billy's at his best when tackling a fucked up mess, like, say, Pigero and clan for their kookball ideas. Take shots at their stupid shit, and you're untouchable because they have nothing to shoot back at if you haven't given them anything. But now Billy has fucked up by exposing himself. He has revealed some of his silly beliefs. He has invested his reputation in a few whacky no
  19. I think you're right. Billy doesn't get it, and can't get it. It's like Merlin and Tony not having the ability to grasp Aristotle's Wheel, and Bob not having the ability to grasp the Polar Travel Puzzle. Cognitive limitations. J
  20. Those NWS scientists sure are an emotional lot. Wowza. Enraged. And what has gotten their panties so twisted? They were scolded for having behaved unscientifically. They had made a statement of absolute certainty about the future. In response, they were told, "The Birmingham National Weather Service's Sunday morning tweet spoke in absolute terms that were inconsistent with probabilities from the best forecast products available at the time." Is that unreasonable? Not at all. Yet these "scientists" are expressing rage. They're calling the comment "disgusting." They're horribly wounde
  21. It’s already started. Trump-hater employees at NOAA are having hissies. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7438183/Government-workers-irate-NOAA-bosses-throwing-bus.html
