There's a character out there in YouTube land who's been pumping out incredibly deceitful videos at a prodigious rate. Rumor has it, it's none other than Lord Monckton. When I asked him directly he was very coy about it. I would expect no less from one of the world's foremost political entertainers. I'd already had a couple comment go-around with 1000frolly, and I have an acquaintance with the Lord going back five years now, so I wasn't surprised that he (er… 1000frolly) has chosen to "Ghost" me at the 1000frolly YouTube channel.
This from men who self-righteously demand that serious full-time working professionals stop everything to run off for a kangaroo debate with self-certain dabblers. Interestingly, these same people never stand up to a constructive debate themselves? Nor do they ever learn from information that's been shared?
To underscore the disingenuous nature of their challenge, they refuse to follow through on serious fact based rational debates that they are challenged with, instead opting to remain within their echo-chamber.
One tactic is "Ghosting" - challenging commenters on one's YouTube channel.
How "Ghosting" works is that a targeted individual can see his/her own comments when logged in, making it appear that your comments are a part of the discussion. However, if you log out of your account and return to the same video you will see that your comment has disappeared, for example:
What's tragic is how few students who know better are offended enough to stand up and add their own thoughtful correcting comments to such maliciously misleading videos or internet articles and such. - Why not make the effort to point out the many deceitful tricks being employed, then offering up real world information so at least people are aware that real evidence is out there.
Below I address this video's fundamental claim with a series of links and quotes that explain why the Ted Cruzs, 1000frollys, Lord Moncktons are so terribly wrong when they insist there's been no warming on this planet for the past 18 years. Also about the satellite temperature record, which is not the holy grail some claim..
