So, I sneak out of the trenches a while back for an extended filial leave, and as I'm being escorted back to the battle, I find new conscripts, new weapons and new fronts. General Dave T can't be happy with the activity!
Can you bring me up to speed? I am familiar with your use of words hysteria, frenzy, whipped, boiling, doom-mongering, and "even politicians", (used in one sentence of of a recent post), in your quest to shine the light of day on climate science, but I've missed the training on the use of the word "subject" as used by Roger C. in this sentence
>Edit: on rereading this, it seems that I have some strong feelings on the subject. Ah well...
and your connection to that word "subject" in a subsequent post that included the following:
>I mainly try to avoid getting embroiled in the politics of global warming because it muddies the waters and leads to endless argument about issues which have no 'correct' answer. Having said that, I feel as strongly about things as Roger C.
I'm confused about the "things" and "subjects" that "you two" feel strongly about, and have strong feelings about. Is it perhaps the use of of phrases like "the terrifying face of climate change" and "desiccation of the landscape" and the casual, simplistic, and unscientific causal connections between extreme weather and climate that some irresponsible people and publications often make. You know, like connecting record or extended hot, cold, dry, wet, etc weather with climate.
Looking for to clarity.
