With the evidence of climate change becoming even more overwhelming, and the majority of public opinion indicating acceptance of its reality (watching one half of Australia burn while the other drowns will have that effect), Andrew Bolt is getting desperate.
What’s a poor denier boy to do?
Well, you could accept the overwhelming evidence that climate change is real.
Or you can stick your head in bucket and scream “La-la-la-la! Not happening!”
Andrew of course accepts the later course of action.
In his most recent cut-and-paste attack on Tim Flannery, Bolt makes the startling claim that sea surface temperatures have not risen.
How does Andrew prove this startling scientific truth?
Bolt cites his favorite denier of both climate change and evolution – Dr. Roy Spencer – to argue the globe is not warming.
Spencer produces the following graph on his blog:
By golly no warming claims Andrew!
Well look at that – no warming trend!
Take that warmists!
Huzzah! Global warming is falsified!
You want some more SST data Andrew?
You want the whole BOM graph?
You want SST data since 1950 huh?
Zing Andrew – a warming trend.
Scientists do science. They go into the real world and, collect data. Form a hypothesis. Test it. Publish their research.
Climate change scep… I mean deniers, fiddle with the X-Y axis of Excel generated graphs.
Andrew: liar, liar, the sea is on fire.
