    "i am not hired as a climate expert, he is. i do not butcher data, he does. i do not make a fool of myself contradicting the leading experts in the field, he does"

    Your modesty is entirely deserved.

    •  i asked three very simple questions (0+ / 0-)
      are you capable of addressing the scientific consensus? are you capable of addressing the many listed instances of pielke butchering data? are you capable of making one intelligent comment?
      0 for 3. crawl back under your rock.

      •  I asked questions, too (0+ / 0-)

        1) Are you capable of addressing the scientific consensus? Namely, what are your credentials?

        2) Are you capable of evaluating this complex argument on statistical inferences? What are your credentials?

        3) Are you capable of a direct answer?
        [I leave aside your sneer about intelligent comment—your own capability in this regard is starkly evident].

        Once again: I made no substantive claim. I said you took a cheap pot shot on flimsy grounds. So you did, and so you continue to do. It is, so to speak, your M.O. And on that note, I bid you adieu.

        •  if you had intelligence and integrity (0+ / 0-)

          you would address the scientific consensus rather than focusing on me. the scientific consensus is not about me.

          if you had intelligence and integrity you would address pielke's statistical flaws elucidated in the post. pielke's statistical flaws are not about me.

          if you had intelligence and integrity you would address substance rather than cherry-picking one tiny and substantively minor sentence.

          I made no substantice claim.
          we agree.
