Don't allow people to play you like this. Its embarrassing.
What is embarrassing is your inability to look at the video and respond to the facts he presents.

Typical AGW alarmists response. Since you can't refute his facts you attack the source.

Got it.

Probably a government school graduate though.

Does that lend any credence to his claims?

Frankly, there’s not much use saying anything. This is a good example of the BS Asymmetry Principle https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bull...etry_principle . The amount of energy needed to refute BS is an order of magnitude bigger than to produce it. Edit: This has an unfortunate side effect: if you actually try to refute it with a long, well-sourced essay, it will be daunting and people just won’t read it. Moreover, they will find it suspicious that the other guy was able to make his claim in a few sentences, maybe with a graph or two. “Why do you have to work so hard to counter him? That’s suspicious!”

This YouTuber‘s primary errors are a fundamental misunderstanding of what climate change is and an insane degree of cherry-picked data. Moreover, if anyone thinks that one can engage in the process of science by posting some old newspaper clips in a YouTube video then they don’t understand the scientific process whatsoever.

How do you go about arguing with someone who doesn’t understand the scientific process, who has demonstrated that they’re willing to cherry pick only the data that supports the narrative they’ve chosen to believe, and who doesn’t even understand that despite the world becoming consistently warmer, it’s still possible for there to have been hotter/longer heatwaves in the past? You can’t. You cannot reason a person out of a conclusion that they did not reason themselves into.

Science is actually a form of opinion. The scientific method can be summed up as:


1)observation, i.e. the collection of empirical data

2)construction of a theory to explain said data.

3)further observation/testing to either confirm or deny said theory.



This is why science is always evolving and growing. 45 years ago science predicted a new ice age. It didn't happen.

This from a guy who thinks climate science is settled science. Talk about ignorant.

Uh, did you not know that the US isn't the whole world? At the top of the charts in your video it says, "July Percent of Hot Days At All NOAA US Historical Climatology Network Stations."

You fell for it hook, line and sinker.
