Lazy

I said in my sermon on Sunday that “no serious person” disputes the NASA-backed assertions that the climate is warming and that due to human causes. I wish I hadn’t use that phrase. It was a lazy way to amplify a point. What kind of sloth needs to amplify NASA?

N-A-S-A.

Such rhetorical laziness is a luxury, because, in fact, NASA and the whole edifice of global scientific consensus about this question are disputed with deadly seriousness.

Laziness about that isn’t helping.

  1. Dear Rocky, I was there, and I didn’t consider it slothful at all. You were using data from a respected source. You were supporting your argument in the logical sense without arguing in the sense of fighting. I shudder to imagine it, but some people may have needed to know that NASA supported the facts you mentioned. Good work.
