Liars! Deniers! Heretics!

If, like me, you're one of those who remain unconvinced that global warming is anthropogenic and have tried to engage those who support this claim in any sort of debate then the chances are you've probably had one or other (or all) the insults in the title above hurled at you.

There is a very good reason why that is. The truth is that, once there is any real debate about the science and the evidence, the AGW movement quickly falls apart as evidenced by this IQ2 debate noted by Global Warming Hysteria.

Before the debate began the vote was 57% - 20% against the motion that global warming is not a crisis. By the time the debate was over, the vote had changed to 46% in favour versus 42% against!

That's why they prefer to call you names. That's why there is a concerted movement to stifle debate. That is why there is a witch hunt conducted against anyone who dares challenge their religious zealotry.

And that's why it's so important that we keep up the pressure.
