The old army game...



Willis Eschenbach, at Watts Up With That?:

I would like to take as my text the following quote from the recent paper (PDF, 270k) by Dr. Kevin Trenberth:
Given that global warming is "unequivocal", to quote the 2007 IPCC report, the null hypothesis should now be reversed, thereby placing the burden of proof on showing that there is no human influence [on the climate]....

Can you see the shell game in that quote? Read the article if you don't.

Warmists are NOT honest people. Much less honest scientists.

* Update: Dr Trenberth has very quietly edited the speech. No apologies of course.
