Burden of proof lies on the one making the claim

| July 26, 2022 1:00 AM

In his letter of July 19, Jack DeBaun accuses me of contradiction when I very clearly pointed out that climate science is speculative at best. How can we determine the weather years from now when we can’t even get an accurate forecast for tomorrow?

DeBaun fails to understand correct logic or the rules of debate. The burden of proof falls on the person making the claim, not upon their opponent. If there is a 95, 97, or 100% consensus (which is it?) on human-caused global warming, then it is up to DeBaun to prove it, not up to me to research hundreds or thousands of papers in order to prove or disprove his point. His arguments are without a foundation, void of truth or reality. And he refuses to provide evidence to prove them one way or another.

The Australian climate crisis goofball, John Cook, is a cartoonist. If Jack prefers to call him a physicist, then so be it. But calling him a cartoonist is not deceptive. I emailed Cook twice asking for a list of those who make up the so-called consensus, but he never responded. That’s socialist professionalism for you.

DeBaun has repeatedly stated that “science doesn’t prove anything,” yet he has simultaneously claimed that human-caused global warming is a scientific fact. This is nothing less than doublethink, a cultic trait common amongst religious fanatics. And, indeed, the climate crisis cult is full of religious fanatics. Joe Biden is even now considering calling for a climate emergency.
