Listen: Dr Tim Ball, Dr Balls, RAY discussed on The Daily Zeitgeist
"Think they did on Mythbusters. And that was not true. Dammit says I tried to get into a safe like that. All right. Well, the kind of dust off upside down safer, you're trying to get into don't worry about. It was gonna be bringing that shit up. You're not gonna talk about it. Well, it was his dude who was a drug dealer, but he was out of his house and somebody who live with him said he was out. So we came through. So did you think was in there, or what did you know those budget? Viagra was in their nose Wagner, though, we thought it'd be other stuff. It was all. The other stuff Cialis. Rogaine? Too young to appreciate. So the way that this is being treated, I mean, the media's covering this everywhere. Basically, there's a an adorable local news story in Illinois where the local police arrested Elsa from frozen for making it so cold what? And there's like two photographs where it's like real, you know, local theater overacting like abusive to children. Well, she looks like she's got this big frowny face on the cop his length. God. She's also is black this Ray a whole other. She's like oh up. But on the right way was to do. I've not seen frozen. Why are they arresting? Because you made so as she singing that song she's deciding to like, let her powers fly. I guess and her powers are to like freeze shit cold. Yeah. Okay. And so then you there's like a permanent winter for a portion of time. And she's the in the original version, she was the villain. Glad cops have time to do that kind of stuff. Yeah. With cute pink like weird. Sex dungeon handcuffs through. God is that for. Yeah. He's like, I just have these pink handcuffs. Don't worry. My daughter's borrow them. Aches. But the way it's being covered on the right? So one of dredges top stories is that this is forcing us to rethink global warming the way they put it on drudges front pages. Whatever happened to global warming cause three days and also they just have their main picture is the screen cap from the shining of Jack Nicholson's head frozen yet. Again, I'm using weather with climate. Yes. So they linked through to this article by this guy, Dr Tim ball, he claims to be a climate scientist. He's actually just a a retired geography. Professor. I didn't know you could be geography professor blasting right wing troll. Right. So he was picked up by the oil industry to kind of do their bidding. He's part of all these like think tanks that are funded by the energy industry. But there's this great article where someone sued him for liable because he wrote an article where he like claimed to be debunking climate science and was like shitting all over this, dude. Who's like part of the green party? In canada. And the judge threw the case out. And the reason the judge threw the case out is because the dude who wrote this article that drudge was laying off to his right all Dr balls writing is not sufficiently credible to inflict damage on the reputation of a professional climate scientists. And so Dr ball was like wrote an article where he was like, this is a great victory for free speech. But it was actually the judge was like no this dude is like so you're so full of shit that would believe this. Therefore, there's no damages to this person, despite Dr balls history as an academic and a scientist the article is rife with errors and inaccuracies which suggest a lack of attention to detail Dr balls part if not an indifference to the truth, the article is poorly written does not advance credible arguments. And basically, he says any informed person who reads the article is unlikely to place any stock in Dr balls views, including his views of Dr Weaver. So like the way that he asked his defense attorney to like approach the case was basically in this way to be like look make the argument that I'm too stupid for anybody to believe what I was arguing. And so this is who they use this is who they use this. These are the people who doubt climate science, but you have to dig three levels deep to find this. But this dude was defending himself from a libel.."
