Global warmers make each other cringe

Much harmless fun is to be had at the expense of global warming promoters at Climate Audit (a non-technical post, accessible to everyone).

Comment 14 in that thread at Climate Audit has a quote (from a different site) which hits the nail on the head.

It relates to psychologist Leon Festinger's book When Prophecy fails, which "tells of a group of doomsday believers who predicted the end of the world on a particular date. When that didn't happen, the believers became even more determined they were right. And they become even louder and proselytized even more aggressively after the disconfirmation. So we can expect ever more extreme, opaque, and strange defenses from proponents as evidence continues to mount. For example we are now told that even cooling fits in with global warming."
