The church of Climatology: an acolyte writes..

George Marshall at the Guardian is doing his bit to patch up the damage to the myth of man-made global warming armageddon. Peering down from the monastery, he writes:

"The lay public, when presented with confusing data and competing arguments about climate change, deploy the mental shortcut of believing the people they most trust. Trust in the communicator is therefore crucial."

'The lay public'? For a moment that raised my hackles, 'arrogant twit' I thought, then I realised he means it literally! The Church of Climatology is a religion now, so we really are the lay public.

(BTW, I've never seen so many comments deleted by the moderator. I wonder what we're missing?)
