Wow, this rwebb poster sounds like he/she/it comes from another planet and that planet is sounding more and more like the desmogblog World (AKA Bizarro World (see http://www.answers.com/topic/bizarro
) where slurs are considering good debating form). You know the group, the one that Tom Harris introduced us to at the beginning of this thread - see www.desmogblog.com
rwebb made the initial claim about NRSP's funding sources. So, using real world logic, I asked where he/she/it got that info as I have never seen it before. rwebb responds with perfect Bizarro logic:
"Tom Harris, Tim Ball and the rest of the gang are mostly familiar names, whose links to the oil industry are well-known. The NRSP is pretty much a reincarnation of the "Friends of Science", which we know was heavily funded by oil."
Tina here again: So, you know they are just pawns of big oil because, lets get this straight, rwebb says they are “well-know” to be pawns of big oil - now that's a convincing Bizarro-type cyclical argument. In typical Desmogblog World (opps, meant Bizarro World; hard to keep them separate in my mind) logic, rwebb then goes on to divert us to a new charge, namely that NRSP is "a reincarnation of the "Friends of Science", which I take it Bizarro consider bad, right? Are we supposed to believe that one too because you said it too?
Bizarro, err, I mean rwebb, continues, with more perfectly bizarre logic: "If the NRSP were any different, they would simply ask an independent auditor to verify it. They haven't, therefore they aren't."
Tina: Let’s see, oh, I get it. FD is really Stephen Harper in disguise; otherwise they'd "simply ask an independent auditor to verify it. They haven't, therefore they are Stephen Harper." Yes, makes perfect Bizarro sense.
I can see what Harris meant when he spoke about aggressive, mindless attacks on those who oppose Suzuki et all on the climate change issue. I am starting to think this analogy with Bizarros is pretty good – do take a look at http://www.answers.com/topic/bizarro
and see if this sums up rwebb type postings. Maybe I should start a poll. Maybe Al Gore is really Bizarro too?
