Profiles in climate science denialism, David Rose the yellow journalist

The folly at Science of Doom's denying AGW denial thread keeps building, and now a regular commenter has added climate science denier extraordinary David "AGW is Hoax" Rose the reporter from the UK Daily Mail tabloid into the mix.  Here's what he writes:

Although only a sporadic lurker on this blog I couldn’t agree more Paul. ...
{With nearly 80 comments in this SoD thread, hate to think what happens when he's a regular.}
"... Because that sleepy Sunday morning I’d just read this piece by a well-known Jewish journalist in London called David Rose. I’d recommend every remaining lurker on this thread to do the same. For along with the d-word come some very ugly words and thoughts indeed, at least if you put your head above the parapet to the extent David has in the UK."
~ ~ ~
"Well known" "journalist" Rose may be, although notorious yellow journalism expert is closer to the mark.  What I can't comprehend is why doesn't it matter to RD and his "sceptical" crowd, (or SoD for that matter), that David Rose has been shown to be guilty of malicious misrepresentation of established facts and broadcaster of slanderous lies on numerous occasions. 

Here's another recent blog defense at "Breitbart's blog," Donna Edmunds started a February 3rd article with this splendid rendition of David Rose the victim, rather than the predator that he is:

"David Rose is a journalist who sometimes writes about the grey areas within the climate change debate. As a result, he has already endured calls for his own children to murder him, been compared to Hitler despite being Jewish, and had his personal contact details published on Twitter. ..."
~ ~ ~
And so the Republican/libertarian echo-chamber goes.  Without that fabricated foundation of lies they have nothing to defend.  Then they wonder why some call them Denialists!

For instance to claim that Mr. Rose writes about the "grey areas" of climate science is a bald faced lie!  Mr. Rose has been denying the most fundamental of contemporary geophysical facts, fabricating lies in order to deny that our planet has kept right on warming and that this warming is caused by our greenhouse gases that we and our society are injecting into our thin atmosphere (and oceans).   
2014 Officially Hottest Year on Record
Worst, no matter how many times David Rose is given learning opportunities by experts who actually understand these matters, or scientists he's misrepresented, he ignores them all, in order to stick to his malicious, some call it treasonous, "Hey, it's all good, AGW is a hoax" storyline.  

But, do any members of the Republican/libertarian community care that Rose's news stories are based on lies and misrepresentations???  
Does SoD care?  

I have collected a list of articles and responses, that share various details of Mr. Rose's many frauds against the public's interest to be allowed to honestly learn about climate science and how we know we're impacting our life supporting Earth.

Another interview!
James Annan | March 19, 2013  

"... he never even contacted me to check he had represented my views accurately, just as he didn't ask Ed Hawkins before apparently plagiarising his graph (and misrepresenting it into the bargain).

"The "increasingly untenable" quote seems to have been pulled off the Revkin article (without attribution, naturally) which quoted me recently. Andy Revkin did exchange a few emails with me to ensure he had fairly represented my view, and I have absolutely no complaint with him on that score. The bit Rose adds about "the true figure likely to be about half of the IPCC prediction in its last report in 2007" is a complete fabrication of course, it's not something I can imagine having said, or being likely. I do think the IPCC range is a bit high, expecially the 17% probability of sensitivity greater than 4.5C. But their range, or best estimate, is certainly not something I would disagree with by a factor of 2. See here for some more extensive recent commentary from me. "

Met Office in the Media: 14 October 2012
An article by David Rose appears today in the Mail on Sunday under the title: ‘Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released… and here is the chart to prove it’
It is the second article Mr Rose has written which contains some misleading information, after he wrote an article earlier this year on the same theme – you see our response to that one here.
To address some of the points in the article published today:

David Rose is notorious for fabricating data to claim that global warming isn’t happening as well as for fabricating quotes, so this story in the Daily Mail comes as no surprise. Rose presents a graph of temperatures from BEST that purports to prove that global warming has stopped and then quotes Judith Curry “As for…

David Rose is notorious for fabricating quotes to misrepresent scientists. Now he’s doing the same thing to climate data. The UK Met Office recently reported that 2010 is “on track to become first or second warmest in the instrumental record”. Rose sprung into action, wrting a news story denying that global warming is happening. Rose…

Deep Climate documents what happened when Steve McIntyre combined his talent for making mountains out of molehills with David Rose’s talent for fabrication: So in summary, we have a nonsensical accusation of “artful” manipulation of a key graph. And we have a fake “blowup” from the Mail on Sunday that contains important differences with the…

World Exclusive! Must Credit Deltoid!! Deltoid can reveal David Rose’s fan letter to Christopher Monckton written after Monckton published his famous Chinese navy disproves global warming article. Rose gushes: Congratulations on your very important and fascinating article. I have two questions. 1. You write: ‘They also found that the graph’s authors had excluded from their…

You can add the George Kaser to the list that includes Pielke Jr, Latif and Lal. It’s like he can’t help himself. Rose claimed that he was told by Kaser that he wrote to Lal: I’m not the only person in disagreement with Dr Lal. Georg Kaser, the Austrian glaciologist, insists (indeed, he told me…

There have been two shock new developments in the Rosegate scandal.

Second, in a comment left here David Rose has…

Imagine, if you will, that the emails stolen from CRU had included fawning comments from an MSM journalist to a climate scientist like this: As a veteran member of the MSM (Vanity Fair and the UK’s Mail on Sunday) may I state for the record: Sir, I salute you. Bravo! or this: without Steve’s brilliant…

I wonder if RD or SoD, or any other Republican/libertarian can explain, why isn't fidelity to honestly representing climate science facts important to them?  
Why does the endless dog-chasing-tail debate trump learning?

RD is a DN!

For some odd reason RD doesn't like the D label. He does use the N word, he isn't black and he isn't Jewish (afaik).

RD should go into a USA black community and use the N word. RD should go into a Jewish community and declare himself a Holocaust Denier. Finally, RD should go just go about anywhere and say he's a climate science denier.

Somehow, don't ask me how, RD would get into a heap of trouble in the 1st two cases, in the last case, most likely RD would just be ignored.

The faux outrage and use of racial epitaphs does not bode well for anyone who is a denier.
