... These people were true believers, blind to the fact that their arguments were hopelessly flawed, the result of cherry-picked data and conspiratorial thinking. They had no idea that the smart-sounding talking points from their preferred climate blog were, even to a casual climate science observer, plainly wrong ...

... As moderators responsible for what millions of people see, we felt that to allow a handful of commenters to so purposefully mislead our audience was simply immoral.

So if a half-dozen volunteers can keep a page with more than 4 million users from being a microphone for the antiscientific, is it too much to ask for newspapers to police their own editorial pages as proficiently? ...

Yes, that's still too much to ask ...

Impartial journalism is laudable. But false balance is dangerous

Beware of false balance: Are the views of the scientific community accurately portrayed?

Another of those scientific studies that you true believers don't believe:

More selective still:

The theories of the True Believers in a nutshell:
https://wattsupwiththat.files.wordpress.com/2016/07/clip_image0027.jpg

The earth is the center of all life in the universe. We have NASA now setting out billion dollar missions to "discover life on other planets or moons" that any biologist could explain to them was impossible. The only possible support for life is DNA and what we have is NASA paying so-called "scientists" to invent other schemes for life. None have arisen but they are sending these missions in any case because it keeps NASA financed.

We even have articles being written by other so-called "scientists" claiming that a planet being in the "water zone" or the range in which liquid water could exist as being possible of supporting life. We even have the jackass idea that there are 5 or 6 such planets orbiting a White Dwarf star in the "water zone" that might contain life. This apparently without understanding that the life cycle of a White Dwarf is NOTHING like our own class G star. That these planets would have been in not just the chromosphere of their star but in its photosphere burning anything and everything on those planets to radioactive ash.

More and more we have to question anything and everything coming from NASA. Even though there are weirdos claiming that man never went to the moon (because man couldn't pass through the Van Allen Radiation Belts and live - of course man can and did. After all, the Van Allen belts are formed by the magnetism of the Earth's magnetic poles and the high Arctic and Antarctic areas are outside of the belts and part of South America and probably Australia are in the belts themselves.) there are those who claim that 9/11 never happened. Either that it was a media fake or that the CIA blew these buildings up. But in fact what we are seeing isn't the observations of scientists at all but the commands from NASA management who are all there at the behest of Obama. So if NASA is to survive - ALL NASA and NOAA management must be thrown bodily out the door and unbiased real scientists put in their places.

By the way litebrain - no one left this site because I threatened them. They left because they couldn't answer real science. Like you, who insist that NASA studies themselves are wrong but older NASA reports saying exactly the opposite are accurate.

You are so stupid that you have even lost your ability to give us a good laugh.

"old sick silly sleepy sleezy slimy slimebag steenkin' filthy vile reprobate rooting (& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AGW DENIER LIAR whiner & many time (plus 1) threatener wake-me-up" continues as an old sick silly sleepy sleezy slimy slimebag steenkin' filthy vile reprobate rooting (& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AGW DENIER LIAR whiner & many time (plus 1) threatener.
