Poor Mr. Newman. If he had known he was going to suffer ad hominem attacks for taking an opposing view on global warming, he probably would have kept his mouth shut. The truth is, advocates like Professor Karoly have clearly demonstrated their dedication to cutting off debate about climate change and favor smearing opponents into silence.”Flat earthers,” indeed. How wedded is the good professor to the principles of scientific inquiry when he seeks to silence those with whom he disagrees?

The professor’s methods do not reflect well on science in general, and global warming supporters specifically.

Meanwhile, I’ve got another six inches to shovel off my sidewalk and my back is killing me. A few more demonstrations of climate change like this and I may need back surgery.

Maybe I could put in a claim that I was “injured” by global warming?
