Only a moron could ignore the easy calculations of how much fossil fuel
we burn, and the CO2 released when we do. It is massive, and clearly has
a significant effect on heat retention.
So you believe that Reid Bryson was a moron? You belive that Freeman
Dyson is a moron? Only a moron would believe that human activity has
any major effect compared to the natural forces of nature that give rise
the cycles of the earth's climate .
I'd say it's the other way around. Only morons would deny the established
science from ice cores that shows CO2 in the atmosphere has risen by a
third in just the last 100 years and that it's accounted for by the
burning of fossil fuels. CO2 is now at levels not seen in 700,000
years and the previous, natural cycles, took tens of thousands of years,
not just 100.
In 1973, Bryson testified to Congress that global warming from fossil-fuel combustion was politically unstoppable.
There is no way right now that we can control the climate to make it more benign. Even if we were to say "let us stop using fossil fuels so that we do not add carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, because that impacts the world climate," how on earth could you stop using fossil fuels? Even those countries that are most heavily impacted by the climatic change are the ones who say it is our turn to be affluent and it is in the use of fossil fuels that one gains affluence.
Decades later he flipped and he died in 2008 at 88, that's over a decade
ago. Whether he was even current with actual research in the last decades,
who knows. He would not be the first scientist that had credentials that
went off the rails. For example, I can cite for you "scientists" that
still deny that HIV is the cause of AIDS.
Freeman Johnson is not a climate scientist.
Freeman John Dyson FRS (born 15 December 1923) is a British theoretical physicist and mathematician known for his work in quantum electrodynamics, solid-state physics, astronomy and nuclear engineering.
But even he doesn't deny anthropogenic warming:
"Dyson believes global warming is caused by increased carbon dioxide through burning fossil fuels, but is sceptical about the simulation models used to predict climate change, arguing that political efforts to reduce causes of climate change distract from other global problems that should take priority."

It takes an especially dim-witted moron to believe that we are going to
take control of the earth's climate, which is what the Climate Cult
would have us believe they are going to do.

Who said we are going to take control of the earth's climate?
All the scientists are saying is that if we don't limit the rise in CO2
global warming will increase at an accelerated rate. I'd say it takes
morons to think that they know the science better than the climate scientists
the world over who actually know the science. The deniers main argument
seems to be about like what that college dropout Rush Limbaugh has to say.
The earth is too big for man to have any effect, end of story, no further
