Vancouver Province Jon Ferry's Wonderful World of the Illogical

Is Vancouver Province columist Jon Ferry trying out for the Best Canadian impression of George Will?

In his column today Ferry takes a university campus newspaper article on violins and makes a fantastical leap in logic to his conclusion that “the jury’s still out on climate change.” I don’t know about the violin-side of Ferry’s argument, but it seems to me to be a convenient strawman for Ferry to knock down in his ongoing campiagn to prop up global warming junk science.

This is afterall the same guy who thought Martin Durkin’s “Global Warming Swindle” should be played to high school children.

instead of fiddling at the edges looking for little crumbs to feed an illogical conclusion, my humble advice to Ferry would be to take a poke around the websites of a few of the top scientific organizations in the world and see whether they think the jury’s still out on climate change.

Here’s a few to start off:

NASA’s Global Climate Change

The Royal Society

American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
