Help

Frankly Eli is getting to the Weasel state.  Climate blogging was always mole whacking and moles have gotten older and slower so the sport has gone out of it.  They never were very bright to begin with.  So Brian and the occasional others, without your help things are going to get very slow here in the hutch.

I have the same problem as you, so I don't have any suggestions.

If you need ideas, I have 250 unpublished draft posts. :)

As long as all the information is out there, it might be better if we do not reply to individual nonsense claims as long as these claims do not leave their basket. You will not convince them and the "debate" only makes them more determined and makes the nonsense a bigger part of their identity.

It seems you spend more time drafting and editing your posts than I do.

The 'merrican rabbit still has more than enough evil clowns to whack, e.g. the chairclown of the "U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Space, Science, and Technology"...

Actually I find those 'merrican oil clowns really scary. They need much more whacking, for planet's sake. While the blog science moles might look old and stale, they still provide ample fodder for the clowns of the apocalypse. Just imagine the orange haired one wins the show. His very existence is proof of insufficient whacking. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/climate-consensus-97-per-cent/2016/sep/14/trump-and-the-republican-party-are-doing-big-oils-bidding

So what do you think will happen now that Hillary has "pneumonia" and we are seeing all those suspects set bombs and carve up Minnesotans?

snarkrates said...

Fernando, I notice the scare quotes around pneumonia. I guess you really are that stupid.

TheTracker said...

I feel the same. Mostly the stuff that gets me spun up enough to write something is not deniers any more. I've heard all their lines and they weren't all that good the first time.

Fill in with more pointers to Russell?
He could take a whack at the story revealed in this one:

You could just have an endless open thread. Seriously, Eli could just come in and say 'What's up Doc' in the title and the comments would full up with all sorts of cool contradictory stuff. Bunnies are starving for intellectual stimulation, and carrot season is over.

I'm saving my seeds for next year, lol.

Hank Roberts said...

Oh, you found the lawyer testifying in favor of levity and against gravity, already.

Dang.

Hillary's "pneumonia" deserves the quotes. My family is full of MDs, plus I have a cousin who's a witch (we are from Cuba, where being a witch is ok as long as it's not done to kill people). The consensus is that Hillary has something else. But they want a blood sample and lung X-rays to make a tentative diagnostic.

Bryson said...

Fernando has a selective attention problem. A reasonable diagnosis from a physician who is actually treating Clinton, citing a fairly common condition is rejected out of hand as unconvincing. Meanwhile, Trump has a physician issue a bizarre (probably Trump-dictated) note attesting to his absolutely amazing health, and **crickets** from Fernando. Extend this strategy more widely and much is explained.

Bob Loblaw said...

No, Fernando is stuck in a 1960s communist-think mode. ...back in the days where the death of a Soviet leader was preceded by several weeks of state declarations that "He has a cold", to explain why the fearless leader was not appearing in public.

Of course, to Fernando it probably seems that Hillary Clinton is a communist, so it's not a stretch (for Fernando) that "pneumonia" is a euphemism for "close to death".

Besides snaring unwary birds, fish, and whales, when large or stringy, plastic flotsam has the bad habit of being ground down to bits small enough for planckton to gag on, so it's almost snarkproof bad food web news , as sharks don't seem to mind the stuff.

I'll stick to microbubbles-- very digestible, and made of the FDA approved wonder material, air.
