I can and will say my part, and I will always be respectful of your views, but you can not simply delete mine. Remember this little squirrel...
"Censorship is saying: 'I`m the one who says the last sentence. Whatever you say, the conclusion is mine.` But the internet is like a tree that is growing. The people will always have the last word, even if someone has a very weak, quiet voice."

" I asked you if you had read a single introductory work on climate science. You have not. Most people, if they had developed a hobby of attacking the work of professional scientists on a topic about which they haven't read a single book, might experience a moment of humility at this point. Yet it doesn`t seem to give you a moment`s pause. "
I answered honestly, I focus my debates on the data at hand not simply relying on one source of data. I`ve listen to climate scientists debate on C-span, I use multiple sources on the web, I have read books on volcanology (my personal hobby), geology, and Paleontology. But mostly, I read the actual studies and form my own opinions instead of basing my opinion on other peoples think and I always cite links. Plus as you know if a person can point out where I`m wrong and I agree, I will openly and freely admit it and wish the person kudos.

I usually don't bring it up because again you know my feelings on appeals to authority but since you constantly attack McIntyre. I felt I should just let you know how authorities you`ve mentioned in the past stack up, since I just usually let it slide.
" Diedrich, why don`t you take your dog for a walk and give the internet a rest? "
Oh no that`s ok, I got like 30 more minutes then I`ll turn it over to you, but first I`d like to address your accusations.
"For my part, I`ve simply stated that I find extended AGW debates on IAB unproductive. This is primarily an entertainment website that people visit to have fun. Chill, dude."
I disagree, I have had wonderfully in-depth conversations on here, and yes I have seen consensus where previously disagreement had first occurred. But don`t worry man, I don`t know if you got the wrong impression about what I said about rudeness, but I`m as cool as a cucumber, no worries.

"McIntyre in neither a scientist nor an academic"
I know you have a personal hatred for McIntyre because he refuted Manns Hockey Stick and showed flaws in his statistics. I'm sorry Squrlz but he is a mathematician which made him perfectly qualified to review Manns statistics. To which his assessments were backed up by Esper and his discovery of the outlier Yamal data. A simple discriminant function analysis would have easily pointed this out but Mann did not do it for whatever reason, that was not McIntyre fault.
Although, personally, I do feel your being quite hypocritical since it is you who has posted several links to Skeptical science pages written by Rob Honeycutt who has no scientific or mathematical background at all. He is plastic bag maker and former bike messenger.
