Anyway, my evidence for his extreme, gob smacking ignorance, is this from his recent short post:
Global warming is almost totally out of the news since the evidence that is happening has all but disappeared.This is by way of introduction to a video by retired climate scientist Lindzen, which had already been thoroughly debunked (at length) by Barry Bickmore.
Not that Kates would have known of the Bickmore post. It's outside his denial-o-sphere.
I see that only a few comments have been made at the Catallaxy post. Is it possible that even they can see when Kates is exaggerating to a ridiculous extent?
