Andy Revkin Demonstrates Plausible Deniability

In 1988, Andy Revkin tried to rev up his following of eco-nutters, in bold green letters.

Endless Summer – Living With the Greenhouse Effect

Now he asserts plausible deniability in the fine print. And he says I am being duplicitous for calling him out.

    Lets ship him up about 800 mi up stream on the Amazon and leave him without a boat or anything else so he can experience his “preindustrial state” up close and personal first hand. In fact lets to the same with every A-hole that is wants to put us back in loin cloths trying to survive in a world without power, fossil fuels, and the other things that are the very definition of a developed civilized people.

    Didn’t I just read where some woman was saying we need to go back to 1780?

    Funny, if only the lines AFTER “no one proposes that” is actually what they claim.
    We should call him on the carpet for no longer supporting less coal but their no coal,
    we should call him on the carpet for their subsequent wild claim that diesel was cleaner for cars,
    we should call him on the carpet for investigating alternative energies rather than preaching them.

    It is good to read further. As I read what he wrote in the larger article it is just more of Andy’s regurgitated pablum of impractical ideas, overwrought emotions about non-existent problems, and sciencey sounding claptrap to justify the policies he wants to impose on the rest of us. A 21st century eugenics as it were: sciencey posing to justify his deep seated prejudices.

    Ah yes, Revkin is quick to point to the weasel wording requisite to every climate scare story.

    I suspect most ‘Climate Reporters’ like Andy Revkin, Seth Borenstein, and Joe Romm keep a file that cross references every article they ever wrote with the requisite weasel wording contained in each. It comes in handy in cases just like this.

    Andy Rivkin and his companions have a problem but the only way to eliminate it would be to return the world to its pre-internet state.

    The web is an unforgiving lover.
