Apparently, deniers are of the thought that attacking anyone that opposes their mindset constitutes proof that man made global warming is not real. I have shown some of comments that I have received (I am avoiding the most offensive ones) below. This is just a sampling. There are a lot more and many of them are much more offensive than these. Also, note how many of them are posted anonymously. If they were credible, why don’t they show themselves? And, don’t go on about how you might not be able to post with your name because you can certainly sign it. Many of the anonymous posters do just that.
The question is, how do these personal attakcs fit in the debate? How does attacking me, or any other scientist, prove their point? Obviously, it doesn’t. Global warming will be the same with, or without, me. So, by attacking me, or any other supporter of the science, what they are really doing is being bullies. They are trying to intimidate any opposition to the point no one will stand up against them, then they will have the public stage all to themselves.
To keep the record straight, there are many that have been very civil, even friendly. Just because we differ in our stand doesn’t mean we have to resort to personal attacks.
The key point to remember is that personal attacks are not proof of their claims. And, if they had proof, why are they resorting to all of these personal attacks?
I realize that you are a religious zealot, but the proof is logic.

I see the lies began with the first line on the webpage! Yes your attention to simple details speaks volumes on your execution of the scientific method. And you want to evaluate my submission?
