an accusation of "whataboutism", just to remind you, i have not seen that in any of SE's of posts so far. What-about-ism is a rhetorical trick, one example of which i've seen it used: "you think america is racist? What about all those homosexuals getting executed in the middle east!" SE is arguing that global warming will not do the things that the scientific community says its going to do, that's not "whataboutism", that's scientific theory, AND DISAGREEMENTS ABOUT SCIENTIFIC THEORY ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF SCIENCE! You know, the kind that's based on theories and evidence, not head games about who is the right winger or an oil dupe or who isn't. Political theory != climate science. They're both useful, but not the same thing.
