[ IRONY ALERT : WARNING ! THIS POST CONTAINS AN ATTEMPT AT HUMOUR. IF YOU TAKE IT SERIOUSLY, YOU ARE IN A BAD PLACE AND NEED TO HAVE A LITTLE LIE DOWN. I THINK THAT JAMES DELINGPOLE IS REPEATING INACCURACIES IN HIS WRITING ON CLIMATE CHANGE, AND HE APPEARS TO BE UNAWARE OF WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON. HE SEEMS TO CRASH FROM BLUNDER TO BLUNDER, BUT NOBODY APPEARS TO BE ALLOWED TO TELL HIM TO STOP, OR GUIDE HIM GENTLY INTO THE LIGHT. NOTHING IN THIS POST IS INTENDED TO BESMIRCH JAMES DELINGPOLE’S CHARACTER, AND I’M SURE HE HAS LOTS OF FRIENDS AND I TRUST HIS WIFE STILL LIKES HIM. WHAT I AM ATTEMPTING TO COMMENT ON IS THE FACT THAT HE HAS MISSED THE FINDINGS FROM SCIENCE, AND APPEARS TO BE SIMPLY REPEATING WHAT HE’S FOUND OUT FROM BIASED SOURCES. I HOPE HIS TEETH ARE NOT AS CROOKED AS THE IMAGE DEPICTS. I’M SURE HE HAS THE WEALTH TO ACCESS A QUALITY, PRIVATE DENTIST, EVEN AS THE REST OF THE NATION’S FANGS GO TO POT THROUGH LACK OF SOCIAL FACILITIES. SMILE. ]
I understand that James Delingpole has not been exposed to the lexicon of science, and so I would hazard to suggest that he is, perhaps, entirely unconscious of the depth, extent, range and expertise of the scientific community, and the strong consensus on matters global warming.
So I must assume that it is not him, but his teeth, that are lying when his web log on the otherwise commendable Daily Telegraph website utters things like this :-
“…Nurse’s analogy is shabby, dishonest and patently false. The “consensus” on Climate Change; and the “consensus” on medical care bear no similarity whatsoever…The “consensus” on ‘Climate Change’, by contrast, is a figment of Al Gore’s – and, I’m sorry to say, Sir Paul Nurse’s – imagination. It exaggerates the number of scientists who believe in Man Made Global Warming and it grotesquely underestimates the number who have many good reasons for suspecting that there is far, far more to “Climate Change” than anthropogenic CO2. What’s more such “consensus” as there is is an artificial construct. It has not been subjected to the rigour of an open or even semi-open market. It is the creation, almost entirely, of politically-driven funding from US government, from various UN bodies, from the EU, from left-leaning charitable foundations on a scale unprecedented in the history of science…”
James Delingpole’s teeth believe they can pronounce what they like without any validity whatsoever, with no comeback or rebuttal. He has not been orthodontically corrected because people with science degrees tend to ignore James Delingpole – his teeth have the wrong evidential, educational and technical roots, so their enamel is rotten.
Most people with any knowledge, reason, sense, decorum and evidence refuse to waste their good time in contradicting James Delingpole’s artful gnashers, and I must say I too am tempted to laugh and turn the page. What nonsense his teeth are masticating ! They don’t even have the ring of toothiness…sorry “truthiness”.
But just because very few people come back and contest James Delingpole’s teeth’s outrageous and completely unsubstantiated fabrications doesn’t mean his teeth are right. In fact, it means his dental organs are inconsequential uneducated thorns in the flesh.
James Delingpole should take control of his toothy dissemblers, and send them to college, where they can learn the truth about global climate chaos, and stop chattering inanity and falsehood.
Oh, the shame ! To have teeth so polished, yet so unlearned !
