This web site will be a response to wattsupwiththat.com, an anti-science web site operated by amateur climatology critic Anthony Watts and his associates. We consider his web site a prominent and monotonous source of misinformation and misrepresentation of the science and physical evidence that relates to the human contribution toward Climate Change, also called Anthropogenic Global Warming or “AGW”.
The extraordinary volume of reflexively supportive comments at “Watts Up With That?” drown out any intelligent responses except to the most diligent and open-minded readers. This wall of noise, combined with Anthony and his associate’s willingness to block or destructively edit criticism and on occasion subtly threaten critics means that their biased and deceptive posts may appear unchallenged and hence possibly correct. This is rarely true.
We intend to briefly comment on posts made at wattsupwiththat.com, identifying their repetition, irrelevance or factually disproved basis. There’s no way we can keep up with Anthony’s output though. Anthony and his Team are all about volume… And maybe, now and then, we’ll find ourselves saying “Hey, they’re right about that bit!”
Looking for factual information and discussion of Anthropogenic Global Warming? The sample of web sites to the right in our “blogroll”, mostly created by the vast decades-long Communist conspiracy of working climate scientists, is a good starting point.
Who are “we”? We are me. To make the creepy rock-pokers work harder I’ll stick to just a first name; Ben. I earned a B.Sc. in Geology in the Eighties at a leading Canadian university. I started an Earth Sciences Master’s degree shortly afterward, but for economic reasons have spent my working life mainly in the Information Technology field as both a programmer and a systems administrator. Politically I believe that governments represent the collective interests of their citizens and should act to both protect and enable them. This is a “librul” perspective.
A quick note about comments: We welcome comments, but we will also moderate them and often add in-line responses. If your comment is not concise, rational and relevant or is redundant or repetitious it will not appear. Want to compose a blast about the algore world gubmint or the lyin’ scientific elite? Your remarks will undoubtably bob happily in the crowded but warm waters of the Watts Up With That? web site.
