I have posted the following to a couple of articles at the Globe and Mail:
Not a single response here has offered unrefuted objective criticism orfor a countering view. I have been bombarded with vile personal attacks which have been offensive and in some cases .
Regrettably that seems to be the level of discourse coming from so many here who do not understand, do not want to understand and deny solid and reputable science.
I substantiate what I say and when there isn’t room or the most appropriate kind of presentation here because of technical limitations, I refer readers to my website. I have moved it to WordPress where I will accept commentary but reserve the right to refuse, in pre-moderation, to approve anything which violates the kinds of standards which are stated here but rarely enforced.
This is a totally non-commercial site, I have no vested interest and I receive no financial support other than my own for all that I do concerning sustainability, energy efficiency and climate change documentation, the focus of the site and my commentary efforts here.
I have been commenting online for several years and I am very disturbed by the level of discourse which I see. I hope that this website will bring some objectivity to discussion of the issues and that is in large part why I will insist on pre-moderation of commentary. Eventually I hope to invite people to act as authors of new articles and to act as moderators but it will take time to develop that framework and the associated trust.
