Now we have a double cliché.

You have not responded to my challenge to justify your assertion so I can only presume you can't. Which proves the point I was making.

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

I don't even know what a "warmist" is, I can only guess. Right, I don't know a lot of climate change, and I never claimed that. The great majority of people are agnostic about ''climate change' including the science professions. Yet you chimed in by claiming that my example of lobbyists p...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

Climate change conspiracy theorists always present their arguments in terms of what it will cost them personally. Nothing is more revealing about their motives. This again is a cliché that means nothing. It is not an argument, and is fairly typical of the shallow level of advocacy of those who prom...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

Look, it's not Jan. 20, 1933, any more. No it isn't. So why mention this date? Because the Right would be happy back then. Why? If by any chance you are referring to Herr Hitler becoming the last Chancellor of the Weimar Republic then you could at least get the right date! And even if you are, what...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

Well chaps, this really has to take the biscuit! ...., saying that the statue of Nelson in Trafalgar Square should be torn down because he was a 'white supremacist who had friends in the slave trade. Nelson was personally against the slave trade, while the Confederate general Robert E Lee supported...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

(If you're an American citizen) would you be okay with a 200 foot statue of the Flying Spaghetti Monster being installed alongside the "National" Cathedral? Taxpayer's money to support a faction's beliefs? I'm not so I couldn't care less. Other than that so long that I as a taxpayer am no...

No it isn't.

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

What I really don't get, is why the right-wingers are so obsessed with climate change. I understand that they are concerned about race, gender-issues, stromg nations, etc. But why do they tap into something they have absolutely no clue or serious interest about (like science; science is per definit...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

I've a science background, and I myself worked in the oil industry. Checking facts, judging scientific reasoning, separating unfounded opinions and superficial pseudo-"knowledge" from the essential and firm foundations was and is my daily bread, because in the real and serious world (outs...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

RF: You are the one who is trolling and reverting facts by 180 degrees, and by doing so, give a perfect example of Orwellian truth-twisting. This is a typical response stance that I would expect. The essential difference is that I have set out my view in a reasonable and clear manner. Your response...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

What kind of absolute nonsense are you talking? .... but obviously you have and always had absolutey zero interest in science so you don't even know this very basic fact. Insolence and ignorance all combined in one dose. No attempt to establish empathy but just a bog standard troll. If I had no int...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

Gentlemen, Being of a different (older!) generation I am at a loss to understand the politically correct ideas that are now bandied about these days. But the techniques shown by Orwell are put in practice in most countries in varying degrees. One current example is AGW or ''climate change'' - here ...
