" must conclude that no mistake is too dumb for someone, somewhere to make if they think they can spin it into supporting their anti-science agenda. For them complexity is something to be abused rather than a challenge to be understood, underlining quite clearly (again) the difference between science and propaganda."

-- Gavin Schmidt,, July 12, 2008

A denialist tactic framing running in my head the past few days is:

Denialists seek to have the perfect be the enemy of the good.

I think I'll keep what Gavin said and think on it.

I find it ironic that a "hockey stick" supporter would be lecturing about scientific integrity.

Actually, the entire tree ring climate climate science field would make any hard scientist (physics, chemistry, .....) aghast with disbelief.
