When science speaks, some people refuse to listen,

While Rush Limbaugh and his  fellow stentorian  Willard Watts  are among the the loudest advocates of the 'death of global warming'  meme , both are both scientifically tone deaf, and selectively stone deaf when confronted with inconvenient facts, as with Watts denial that his website is censored, and Limbaugh shutting his ears to his own  "expert climatologist here on staff."  Dr. Roy Spencer. 

Consider what happened in 2007:
Wowed by the sciency goodness of a PR handout invoking the "Miocene, Pliocene and Plasticine eras" and such impressive pseudoequations as:
Where    Q is raw mass    u is area     c is osmotic conductivity   Î¨ is the vertical (neo-Falkian) benthic discontinuity,  
X is  concretised  diachronic  invariance (P-series),  F is trans-dimensional flow structure 
 and  jy is the non-rectilineal harmonic regressivity of the constant Δ )
the gibberish-challenged broadcaster proclaimed  The Journal of Geoclimatic Studies had pulled the plug on man-made climate change with a peer-reviewed paper  on ' Benthic Bacteria ' that proved global warming stemmed not from  fossil fuel burning, but bacteria burping methane in the depths of the sea. 

Rush's account of the earth-shaking discovery  presented only one minor problem: there is no Journal of Geoclimatic Studies, something Spencer strove mightily to communicate, only to find Limbaugh would not read what he could not hear. Here's the memo the long suffering climatologist posted the following day :
Yesterday (11/7/07), a "research study" was circulating on the internet which claimed to have found the "real" reason for global warming. Even though the hoax was quite elaborate, and the paper looked genuine, a little digging revealed that the authors, research center, and even the scientific journal the study was published in, did not exist.
I sent an e-mail to Rush about the issue regarding the hoax, with a copy of the "research study."  Unfortunately...he thought that I was calling global warming a hoax, rather than the study
