Can people really be this stupid?
Just over a week ago, David Rose posted an article in the Mail on Sunday claiming that climate change has stopped happening. Despite a howl of protest (including my own) – and some very thorough rebuttals in various publications (pointing out things like 98% of energy the Earth receives from the Sun is being absorbed by its oceans) – he decided to repeat his nonsense again at the weekend. This comment (below), by someone who is clearly unaware of the track-record that businesses have for denying responsibility for bad things that happen to their customers, caught my eye – for all the wrong reasons:
“Asking scientists to deny climate change is like asking Cadbury’s to deny Easter. Ask yourself, how many scientists are involved in climate change research, sustainable energy research, carbon capture research, etc, etc? It’s a cash-cow, and the rest of us are providing the hay.” – Had enough, London, United Kingdom, 21/10/2012 13:35.
So, to answer my question… Yes, apparently they really can be this stupid!
