Remember Poe’s Law

Where’s the warming?:
[Via DenialDepot]

Where is the warming? I have truth aligned the above graph in complex ways that you might not understand.

Let me explain

The warmists use something called an “anomaly” on the Y-axis, an arbitary choice, but one which I decided to follow. However the alarmists only plot a Y-axis range of about 2 degrees C wheras I plotted the full 20 degrees of temperature range on the Y-axis. This is more typical of the daily temperature cycle and so more realistic.

I used the hadcrut surface record rather than rely on one of the suspiciously “adjusted” and biased satellite records. I also avoided drawing the plot in red as that assigns unnecessary weight and significance to it.

Looks very flat doesn’t it? Where’s the warming. Is there any? I can’t tell. We might never know. Doubt.


Poe’s Law, while formulated originally for parodies of Fundamentalism, can be applied to a wide range of thought exemplified by Denialism. While obviously a parody site, it actually uses some of the same techniques used at real sites, just in a way to expose the denialism inherent in the material.

You have to really love a site that straight up states:

We are not afraid to be called climate “deniers”. In fact we embrace it as medal of honor bestowed on us by our alarmist foes. Galileo was a Denier. It is not an insult. I call this blog “Denier Depot” for that reason.

Welcome to my climate science blog.

I believe that one day all science will be done on blogs because we bloggers are natural skeptics, disbelieving the mainstream and accepting the possibility of any alternative idea.

We stand unimpressed by “textbooks”, “peer review journals” and so-called “facts”. There are no facts, just dissenting opinion. We are infinitely small compared to nature and can’t grasp anything as certain as a fact.

Nothing is settled and we should question everything. The debate is NOT over Gore! When so-called “experts” in their “peer reviewed journals” say one thing, we dare the impossible and find imaginative ways to believe something else entirely.

So, it can now become a part of the other parody sites. But it also does a good job of using its parody to demonstrate many of the techniques used at real denialist sites, so its parody serves a useful purpose. As all great parody really does.
