Lately there have been a tiny handful of readers who seem to have adopted the idea that NTZ is a personal forum they can simply take over. From now on this is no longer the case.
If you have point to make, then make it. There really is no need for anyone to feel he/she is always right and needs to have the last word on every single point.
The purpose of this blog is to show that the science is nowhere near as settled as it is claimed to be, and that the lofty promises made by green energies are not what they are cracked up to be by any measure. The many reports and lists of peer-reviewed publications presented here clearly support that. If you have a hard time with that reality, then I’m very sorry; I can’t help you.
In a true democratic and open society people have the right to dissent without others barging in — like a William Connelly or Dana Nuccitelli — and obstinately demanding the climate science is settled and that we all have to fall into line. Long comment strings will be discarded in the future.
If you really do have so much good stuff to say, then start your own blog. If you’re as good as you think you are, it may well be a smashing success!
We welcome different opinions here, but leave the uncompromising insistence and the need to dominate out. Make your point and move on.
From now on don’t think this is a mike on a podium that you just can grab any time you want, sound off, and expect everyone to nod in agreement.
I think most adults know what proper manners regarding dialogue are, and so there should be no need to put up playground rules on this.
