    lol

    You guys are getting far more worked up about Abbott's free speech than we are about yours

    Abbott is free to say what he wants, and you are free to refute what he says if you can

    If you just want to have a sook about him having a say, you are also free to do so. It's not very convincing though

    Most of the posts in this thread suggest otherwise

    That's a rather poor analogy since climate scientists can't even explain how it was...

    well he didnt say what you said he said.

    he said this

    "There’s the evidence that higher concentrations of carbon dioxide – which is a plant food after all – are actually greening the planet and helping to lift agricultural yields. In most countries, far more people die in cold snaps than in heatwaves, so a gradual lift in global temperatures, especially if it’s accompanied by more prosperity and more capacity to adapt to change, might even be beneficial.”

    so what part do you disagree with?

    None of the posts have even attempted to refute what he has said RW

    So yeah, it smacks of irrational hatred of the man

    If Tones makes an unsubstantiated claim, why is it up to people who call him out for same to offer up evidence?

    Shouldn't the onus of proof be upon the one who makes the claim?
