Loon of the moment.

Christopher Booker.

Christopher Booker is a journalist with no scientific credentials to back up any of his loony claims.
He is a science denier in every sense of the word, the perfect mix for loon-lovers everywhere.

He's a climate science denier, obviously. Doing all the same things the other loons do. Misquoting scientists and data. Making shit up in the right way for the loon-lovers to gobble it up.

Not content with being a climate science denier, he is also an intelligent design creationist, because, well, he believes the bible over scientific evidence, like the other loons.

He denies asbestos is a health risk because another loon says so. He has claimed that it is chemically identical to talcum powder, because, well, he doesn't know a fucking thing about chemistry or chemical structures.

Of course, the loon-lovers will quote this loon and claim he knows what he is talking about because they don't understand much of anything to begin with and prefer to be spoon-fed lies instead of actually reading and understanding what the real research says.

5. Amazing that the Acolytes of the worlds largest cult

feel obligated to project their own denial of reason in lieu of faith onto others.

6. It's all they've got.

No evidence, no data, no reason, just faith.
So obviously if someone disagrees with them, it's based off of faith too.

8. Here's another loon

There are a whole bunch of credible scientists who are skeptical of the global catastrophe called global warming. One of many.

Richard Lindzen
From 1983 until his retirement in 2013, he was Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was a lead author of Chapter 7, "Physical Climate Processes and Feedbacks," of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Third Assessment Report on climate change. He has criticized the scientific consensus about climate change and what he has called "climate alarmism."

9. Yes, like many once knowledgable scientists, he has ventured into loondom.

Went from being a proponent of the scientific method to criticizing scientists and taking money from Oil companies and the Heartland institute.

His scientific paper has been pretty much laughed at for not following proper methods and procedures and overstating any claims it makes.

That's spot-on for loon candidacy.

16. Are you seriously suggesting that the writer does not impact the bias of the content?

Would you say the same thing about Master Brian Thomas who writes “science” articles on Creationism for ICR? Regardless, the article you quoted has a lot of opinion not directly attributable to your Dowser scientist. Given that, let’s look at the scientific expertise of Mr Booker:

“He argues that asbestos, passive smoking and BSE have not been shown to be dangerous.”

“Booker has also argued in support of intelligent design, claiming that supporters of the theory of evolution "rest their case on nothing more than blind faith and unexamined a priori assumptions".”

“In December 2009, Christopher Booker and Richard North had published an article in The Sunday Telegraph in which they questioned whether Rajendra Pachauri, chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), was using his position for personal gain, with a follow-up Telegraph article in January 2010. On 21 August 2010, The Daily Telegraph issued an apology, and withdrew the December article from their website having reportedly paid legal fees running into six figures. Dr Pachauri described the statements against him as "another attempt by the climate sceptics to discredit the IPCC."”
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Booker

Your author is a militant activist in numerous whacko causes and deserves as much scrutiny as your Dowser.

Nobody needs to discredit the IPCC. They do a wonderful job of it themselves.

A thread in which you were pontificating as an expert on the VN draft and the impacts of the Draft Lottery on Trumpie's status. Which were absolutely NONE.
