Bring in the Clowns

"It seems that there is now no place for scepticism," Jennifer Marohasy, an Australian entomologist and sceptic blogger laments. "When former Canadian champion alpine skier and now Chancellor of Canada’s Thompson Rivers University, Nancy Greene-Raine, said on television last week that since we don't know what next week's weather is going to be, it is perhaps presumption to suggest we know what it will be in 50 or 100 years, many wanted her sacked."

That's because she made a fallacious statement. Sceptics are skoffed at because in the face of overwhelming evidence they remain steadfastly wrong. Wrong shouldn't be an option, when evidence and proof is available. Fake debate ain't debate. It's fakiry passed off as debate funded by ExxonMobil et al as we've seen.
