But . . . but . . . but, proton, they're just airing the "other side" on anthropomorphic climate change. You know: there are at least two sides to every issue, right? And not acknowledging the validity of their "other side" is clearly a form of liberal fascism. By not granting due deference to continuing claims that-- in essence--the earth is flat, we are threatening the Right with totalitarianism.

Funny thing is, of course, that journalists--most of whom, demographically, are pretty liberal--have greatly encouraged this exploitation of false equivalence. Every report in the MSM on clearly established scientific data has to include a "rebuttal," no matter how intellectually flimsy. It's only "fairness"--a quality conservatives supposedly decry, but not when it comes in handy.

"But I didn't see anything you claimed was in the article. It is a mystery to me how you wingnuts have come to live in an alternate fact free universe. You collectively use an interesting method of arriving at what you consider truth. One of you makes an off the wall claim that has no relationship to the world the rest of us are forced to live in. Then a second wingnut chimes in with agreement and then a third. It is truth by committee, but unfortunately no matter how many illiterate wingnuts want the claim to be true, their desire for it to be true has no effect on it actually being true. That must be very frustrating to wingnuts and possibly accounts for so many of you being ash wholes.

You might find life more enjoyable if you joined the rest of us in reality.
