The nature of argument

At Stoat is an example illustrating why the debate has degraded when it comes to climate research. Note the tone and the substance, which is ad hominem. Also note that the commentary misses the point of its target, which was about the behavior of an association. 

There is a pattern. Those on the ‘wrong’ side of climate alarmism tend to list specific things that concern them. Those on the ‘PC’ side attack anyone who disagrees and will not discuss the issues being raised. In other words, one side has intellectual integrity and the other does not. It is this observation that was used by Professor Lewis to conclude that the PC was a fraud or hoax.
