Sou, of course had already seen the post, and WT's first attempt to pull the foot out of his blog. Eli pondered this a bit or there was some other thought of evil which gave him the prod. Hmm saith the bunny, maybe we should ask the let's be friends crowd what they though of this. So he did:
Well, ok, Eli is on occasion a trouble maker. This all started when Willard Tony gave the keys to Tim Ball, the elder northern bunnies may remember him. Well in the grand tradition of the Good Lord, Monckton (and anybunny following that link will understand why Eli calls him "Good Lord," maybe with a comma in there) when you are on the grift you have to keep accelerating the crazy to move the crowd to the next level otherwise the well dries up.
So anyhow, Ball went full Godwin at WT's not only that but Agenda 21 and Maurice Strong, international man of luggage made guest appearances. Eli understands that Stephan Lewandowsky has down loaded the post and comments and put them under armed guard. It was all there and more, maybe no moon landing but not much else was missing in the Thanksgiving melange.
Victor Venema brought this to the attention of Eli on ATTPs fairwell tour (how many times have the Rolling Stones milked that cow?):
@richardabetts @flimsin Suggestion has been made that perhaps you might want to read http://t.co/BFk6njJMod U have been concern trolled

@flimsin I suspect @ethonraptor is raising / relaying concern about dining with people who put this stuff on their blog?

@richardabetts @flimsin More like people whose life revolves around trashing you & your colleagues. Even masochists have safe words

Tamsin Edwards and Richard Betts contacted Willard Tony Watts and he agreed to post their take on the matter:
Dr Tim Ball’s blog post “People Starting To Ask About Motive For Massive IPCC Deception” – drawing parallels between climate scientists and Hitler – doesn’t do anyone in the climate change debate any favours: in fact it seems a big (goose) step backwards. It’s especially frustrating to see him write this so soon after the productive dinner at Nic Lewis’s place, where the attendees agreed on the need to depolarise and detoxify the climate discussion. Anthony Watts wrote an extremely positive blog post about the evening, and there were many favourable comments from WUWT readers saying how great it was to have a more civilised conversation.continuing in forlorn hope:
. . . We were also disappointed that so few commenters below the post distanced themselves from his views. We hope this is merely selection bias, and that many of you are simply sighing and moving on to the next post.Some of the usual suspects try and keep their act clean, but others just can't help themselves. Eli leaves the choice nut pickings to Sou. Oh well, resisting is not something Eli is good at so just one:
Sorry I do not see how Dr Tim Ball’s post is in anyway offensive and neither did he call the alarmists Nazi’s as implied by Dr Betts and Dr Edwards.
He used an example of how people could be fooled by a big lie he could have used any other example from the Stalin era or middle ages where the King or Pope is God’s anoninted representative on earth.
The IPPC reports may well be the state of the art in man made global warming, although better men and women than me have shown otherwise. What cannot be called into question is the deception created by the summary for policy makers.
I paraphrase ” Hey guys get those names no ones going to check whether they have pHd’s or not.
This was pre Kyoto.
I pose one other queation imagine if all the billions wasted on climate change research and subsidies had been spent saving lives in the third world would it be tens of people or millions of people?Oh, and most of them don't like Tamsin and Richard's science much. But the best, the best dear bunnies is happening over at the tweets.
The big lie of the Nazi’s, Stalin, Pol pot resulted in millions of dead.<
The big lie of the climate change community resulted in ????????? still counting?
There are lessons in this. One of them is break bread with anyone, but bring a GC/MS
