In an amazing display of how to handle Richard Courtney the first Dano, Raiya, C_L and others hand the dirty (coal division) old boy his head. Before slinking off the dirty old boy himself utters an accusation of genocide:
Constraining the carbon dioxide emissions at their present level would deliberately kill at least 2 billion people - mostly children – before the middle of this century. And reducing the emissions would kill more millions – possibly billions – of people. This would be genocide of a magnitude not previously possible in all human history.Ethon eagerly awaits a declaration from the usual suspects that this is beyond the pale.
BTW, read, or skim the thread, it is a good example of where the public discussion is going and how opposing the denialists with the two pronged attack of ridicule and science works and why it is important to have publicly accessible detailed information on the science in a quotable form. All three elements are needed.
