                         GOD  COULD  ONLY  MANAGE  TEN


Bob Carter — a great man, gone far too soon — tributes flow

“Professor Bob Carter (74) has been a key figure in the Global Warming debate,”
Sorry, but Bob Carter was utterly irrelevant to climate science, except in the way a mosquito bothers a mammal. 
[Hmmm. Like malaria, dengue, filariasis, West Nile virus, chikungunya, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, Saint Louis encephalitis, Western equine encephalitis, Eastern equine encephalitis, Venezuelan equine encephalitis, La Crosse encephalitis and Zika fever?] ED
Carter contributed no original research, claimed no discovery, and published nothing of substance. He was just a denier who didn’t understand the science and couldn’t accept what he did understand. To him, his preconceived notions were always more important than the science.
 [Does one need to do original research or make a discovery to refute and/or disprove an others claims?] ED
My guess is that after a career of dry, dusty geology he loved getting attention for his inanities on climate change. 
Like anyone’s death, his is a tragedy. But it certainly is not a loss for science — especially the kind of “science” practiced here.
[ You are certainly better mannered than William Connolley and Russell Seitz.] ED
Appell, it’s a basic blog requirements(sic) that you use accurate English. The definition of a “denier” in a science debate is someone who denies an observation. You’ll need to list the observation(sic) that Bob Carter denied, or perhaps you’d rather just apologize for baseless namecalling in a petty, illspirited(sic) comment that lacked any substantiation, fact or grace? – Jo
