Curry agrees with me

Judith Curry, former email-deleting arch-witch of the AGW cult and now a victim of witch-hunts (the bad kind) from the AGW high priests since she decided to leave the sinking ship of the AGW dogma after the final nail has been hammered into it, suggests the following truce between the bed-wetting eco-fascists and the climate skeptics (aka realists):

  • If someone presents research that you disagree with, either ignore it or rebut it, in the blogosphere or journal publication if the research is published.

  • Attack the argument, not the person. No ad hominem attacks and no appeal to motive attacks. No argumentum ad populum.

  • Do not use science to fight political battles

  • Rediscover the joy of science, with debate as the spice of scientific discourse.

  • Amnesty for war crimes on both sides (that fall short of formal research misconduct)

Good suggestions, Judith. As all my readers know, I am a distinguished bridge builder myself, and I am willing to negotiate with you.

I already ignore practially all so-called "research" coming from the high priests of the AGW dogma. Garbage in - garbage inbetween - garbage out!

And we must surely put an end to all these ad hominem/populum attacks from the ugly stinking AGW fanatics.

I especially agree about “Do not use science to fight political battles”. I wrote a very thoughtfull post about that myself a week ago (maybe you read it). It is paramount that we protect policy from the corrupting influence of science, just as it is paramount that we protect businesses and markets from the corrupting influence of policy.

But I disagree about the last point, though. Instead, I agree with Dr Marc Morano: the AGW dogmatists should be kicked while they are down and then publicly flogged. Only after that, we can have a truce like civilized people.

    Without consummate bridge-builders like Baron, Judy, Junior, and of course Inhofe, we'd be in a world of hurt. And yes, certainly a little kicking while they're down is warranted given the magnitude of the crimes so far perpetrated against humanity. After that it'll all be a big love-in, a perpetual Woodstock if you will.

  2. "Rediscover the joy of science, with debate as the spice of scientific discourse."

    Now, that is HAWT.

  3. Well, I say before there's any truce with the nazi socialist fascist commie green eco-fascist nazis, we should make sure that we arrange to keep science out of the scientific process!!!! The AGWers have been blinding people with science, and we should put on the sunglasses! (Or better yet, the blindfolds!) Keep up the great work, you and Judy have those Gore-ites on the run now - right off the burning bridge that you two are building!

  4. Judith Curry is not a witch.
    She's you.
    I saw her say so on TV.

  5. I wouldn't trust a former AGW fanatic like Judas Curry at face value. I mean, how realistic is it that somebody is leaving all the wealth and influence that come with the IPCP? And besides, she's a woman! I think she's just a spoof to make fun of us, climate realists.

    Corrigendum: A perpetual Woodstock without one Mr. Hendrix of course, but a love-fest nonetheless. RIP Jimi.

    Also Baron, one small request if I might: please try to be clearer w/ your article titles. I'd initially thought this one was about the joys of Indian food. Thanks.

  7. Once we reach there, so many wonderful fifa 14 coins dreams will come true and the pieces of our lives cheap fifa 14 coins will be fit together like a completed jigsaw puzzle. How restlessly we pace the aisles, damning the minutes loitering, waiting, waiting, waiting for the station.
