It's not science unless you doubt it.It's Global Warming, Stupid!

I have work to do and the time has come for me to depart these precincts. It therefore behooves me to summarize what has happened here today.
We have seen deniers present the same old falsehoods over and over. I have repeatedly countered their falsehoods with explanations of the science involved, often providing citations to sources to support my claims.
In all of these cases, only once did a denier respond with evidence, which, upon investigation, proved to be incorrect, as I demonstrated by providing the entire quote in question.
One denier presented a link to an article that contradicted his claim; another denier presented a link to another denier. Not impressive.
In general, what we have seen is massive ignorance of basic science, a refusal to base arguments on evidence, lots of wild claims with no support, and a flood of opinions.
All of this serves to debunk the common suspicion that all the deniers who show up on blogs like this are being paid to do so by the fossil fuel industry. That suspicion is disproven by the behavior of deniers here; if they were professionals, they wouldn't make such dumb claims.
But doubting is done best by minds 'that have a clue'.
