    Had you read the blog, you would have seen it referenced actual peer reviewed papers.

I'd like to lose that bet but I doubt I will.
    The pictures look the same, bro. I even imported them into Photoshop for a closer look, lol. Pixel by pixel.

    Just as I predicted: You're sticking to your BS no matter how much it's proved to be BS. I note, though, that you at least hedged by saying they "looked" the same. At least you recognize your BS at some level. And now you're using the term "bro" so you've revealed that you're, what, 16--or 40 and still talking like a teenager?

    Re: World's Thickest Mountain Glacier Is Finally Melting,

    I won't go into whether it's stupidity, gullibility or just plain old lying that causes CAGW deniers to push their BS but whatever it's due to it's a pure pleasure to demolish it. That they'd think a blog called the No Tricks Zone was anything but a shill for anti-science BS should have been enough for any self-respecting human to steer clear. But not our boys. They fall for anything that hits their lizard brains' trigger centers. The most hilarious thing they've tried pushing in this discussion is how the articles cited at NTZ are "peer-reviewed" is not that they probably don't have a clue what "peer review" means but that the articles are being misrepresented and falsified on the blog:

    On 24 October 2017, Breitbart.com’s James Delingpole published a story appearing to report that hundreds of scientific papers published in 2017 “prove” that global warming is a myth. This post followed Delingpole’s June 2017 clickbait success falsely alleging that 58 published papers proved the same thing.

    Both stories primarily consisted of regurgitated material from a blog called the “No Tricks Zone” (NTZ), which highlights out-of-context sentences from (in most cases) legitimate scientific studies that the author of the blog incorrectly thinks dispute the tenets of anthropogenic global warming. The 400 studies in this latest piece cover topics wholly irrelevant to the question of anthropogenic global warming, including, for example, a study on the effect of wind turbines upon the viability of migratory bat populations.


    The first time that Breitbart ran a NTZ based-story, numerous scientists listed in the report pointed out their their graphs had been digitally altered by NTZ to omit data, and that NTZ had either misinterpreted their papers or read them so superficially that the author of the post did not realize he was sometimes quoting from general background material and not the actual findings of the papers themselves.

    Despite these deficiencies, a 23 October 2017 NTZ post upped the alleged tally of climate change-disproving papers from 58 to 400 (which, to be clear, still includes those previous misrepresented studies).

    We emailed Delingpole to ask how long it took him to research his piece, given that less than 24 hours elapsed between the original NTZ post and his Breitbart piece. Rather than write back, Delingpole published our query on Breitbart, along with the following response (which read in part):

    As little time as I possibly could.

    Speaking of his unyielding faith in Kenneth Richard, the author of the New Tricks Zone post, Delingpole said:

    Obviously, if it turns out that Kenneth Richard has misrepresented these papers, then yes, I can be criticized for having lazily helped promulgate a lie.

    Richard misrepresents and misinterprets these papers in many instances. For example, NTZ misrepresented a graph from a 2017 paper that intentionally removed the long term global warming trend so researchers could investigate other trends in the record — a fact that went unmentioned in his post. NTZ reported on the graph (below) as if it were evidence that global temperatures were flat, despite the fact that the post had intentionally and explicitly removed that signal:

    [DP would not load image]



    Without the removal of the longer term warming trend, that above figure would have looked like this, as presented by the study’s author in a figure plotted for Climate Feedback:


    [DP would not load image]


    NTZ employs three main strategies: straw man arguments that falsely change the evidence for global warming into something that is easier to refute; the inclusion of papers wholly irrelevant to the reality of anthropogenic climate change; and the inclusion of papers (or conference abstracts) that almost certainly underwent little or no peer review process.
    continued......
