The globe is no longer warming and Pop Science and now the LA Times have close their comments due to the fact they cannot answer the question: Why has the global temperature stopped increasing?
The L.A. “Times” has not gone as far as cutting off comments (something the deniers clearly noticed, based on the more than 100 comments posted to Tuesday’s op-ed). But when it comes to what the paper’s editors will print, letters from climate change deniers are no longer under consideration.
Popular Science stop comments, because debating science is dangerous, readers are dumb an they are unable to defend their weak arguments for warming.
If you cannot answer the questions, do not let anyone ask the questions.
