So far, so stupid.

Someone who thinks GW is a hoax is a crank.
Some of the people who do not agree with us are ridiculous--treating their arguments as if they were reasonable is pointless.
There is plenty of real substance to discuss, and yet the media is (sic) retreating to the first grade play room.

He predicts that this recent unpleasantness is merely a bump along the difficult path of the enlightened climate elite's finally convincing the witless rubes that the AGW threat is real.
