The question remains: “if environmentalist policies are so wonderful, why can they only be implemented at the point of the state’s bayonet?”
And for the follow up question(s):
Why does not the refusal to provide data for the reproduction of results not immediately and dispositively invalidate the claimed results? Why is the controversy between McIntyre and Briffa a controversy at all? Why is not Briffa slinking away in hot-faced embarrassment? Why is not his refusal to provide his data taken as prima facie evidence of intent to defraud?
Why can I not beat all the Warmistas about the head and shoulders with an axe handle for the good of all mankind?
