Do people pay attention to what they’re saying?

by Greg Krehbiel on 13 March 2017

I got into a minor discussion of global warming with somebody on Twitter.

As you know, if you’ve paid any attention at all to the topic, if a skeptic cites anybody other than a “climate scientist,” that’s considered unfair. The only opinions that matter are from scientists working in the field. (Like Professor Al Gore, for example.)

So this guy on Twitter refers me to the opinions of Barry Bickmore, who is not a climate scientist.

That’s fine by me. IMO the question is multi-disciplinary and requires input from all sorts of scientists, economists, even politicians. (It’s rare that you find an alarmist who knows much about ice ages, for example, which is very relevant to the issue.) But it’s the warming hysterics who created this rule about “climate scientists” — apparently only for skeptics.
