The GWPF ought to have provided a grammar checker for the latest addition to its board: ambiguity-challenged U. of Western Ontario calculus text coauthor Christopher Essex :
"There is no justification for acting like vicious badgers toward scientists. The response of some GWPF scientists to the climate orthodoxy shows that scientists do not need to be paid to have reason to question the climate orthodoxy.
Its positions are scientifically very weak, not strong, and it is the dogmatists that are responsible for that weakness."
Essex objects to critics :
Questioning our ethics, morality, competence, and even sanity...
This entire assault could not be more anti-scientific. The protagonists are political interlopers in science who do not understand or respect the nature of scientific truths and how they are discovered,... What the dogmatists understand well is eristic argument, after Eris the Greek goddess of discord and chaos.
Essex's view is on a collision course with nemesis, for those questioning his cohort's ethics, morality, competence and even sanity, find their wildest dreams fulfilled richly and anew every time the Heartland Institute stages a climate conference on the Las Vegas Strip.
