I have not gotten very far with my reading of reading the IPCC report. I have fractal inclinations. If I come across something that I don’t understand, I look at the referred paper. While reading that, I come across a topic I do not understand and look up the paper that refers to that. There is no end to this process except at some point I stop
Instead, I am trying to contribute to the Climate Etc blog. It occurs to me that I might say something incorrect and stupid. But Dr. Curry seems very tolerant towards stupid remarks so I think it is a safe place. There seems to be a wide range of people who contribute to the blog and I see my participation as a social experiment as well as scientific. Do I trust someone who makes good arguments but then is nasty about it? What to do about someone who is misguided but polite?
