Having your cake and eating it too.

20 08 2008

I stumbled upon another wordpress blog today, highlighting an inconsistency in the AGW debate:
Andrew Watt claims that those skeptical of disastrous climate change can be shouted down for refering to weather events, (Day to day weather is not the same as averaged climate data).
However, the media and even reputable meteorological researchers often refer to single adverse weather events as proof of man made climate disasters.

I tend to agree because I myself have been accused of making this error, and when I have read criticisms of skeptical publications by those at sites such as Real Climate, I have come across these same objections.

For what I think is a high quality post, see:
