Where do you get "debunked at every turn" from? I
The warming zealots have to claim that. You see in their religion, there can be no debate (the debate is over). In science, as all rational sane people know, the debate is never over until something becomes a FACT, which AGW is not. It is a mystlical belief perpetuated by the almighty dollar and small minded religious zealots.
Every denier on the planet says that. But they are either outright lying or they simply wish to be deluded because it suits their ideology.
No. It is all in the numbers and the manipulation of them. You see the Religious zealots dont want you to talk about manipulation since they are guilty of it (eliminating the MWP and LIA along with most of the Russian reporting stations to name a few). So they doctor the data for the history and then start their proof from an arbitraty point. Now when the skeptics (note not deniers - the true deniers are the religious zealots who are denying science) do the same, but instead start the trend at 1998, the trend is a slight decline.
Now, contrary to the religious zealots, there is no "debunking this". As it is just a fact, not a doctored number. However statisticians have said there is insufficient data points to provide any statistical sampling, and hence it is just numbers plotted on a graph, and not a statistical trend. Which most skeptics do readily acknowledge, but the religious zealots then lie and say it has been "debunked".
So what we now have is an alternate theory, not debunked (but debated as it should be) and of course the religious zealots worried that perhaps their religion is about to be proven irrelevant, trying to burn the heretics at the stake.
Did you see how fast Mr. Know it all came out and lied about the study? Using a typo to try to add some legitimacy to his creed? That is how the religious zealots work, Torquemada would be proud.
