How to Win a Debate? Simply Declare, “I Win!”

At least that seems to be Al Gore’s approach to the global warming controversy.

The Heartland Institute, a libertarian think tank (with inconsequential funding from energy companies, by the way), has repeatedly and publicly challenged Gore to debate whether global warming is the terrible crisis he claims it to be. Here is how a Gore spokesperson responded:

The debate has shifted to how to solve the climate crisis, not if there is one. It does not make sense for him to engage in a dialogue with them at this time.

How convenient! Simply declare the matter closed, and stay focused on the prescribed agenda.

But ignoring contrary evidence doesn’t make it go away. Someday, when the truth becomes too obvious to ignore, the current hysteria over global warming will be taught in universities as an example of how not to do science.
