Global Warming Deniers are innumerate

ie they suck at Mathematics:
Every now and then, I venture over to other fields to see what the debates look like. The most recent laugher was amongst the global warming denialist crowd.

Why? In 2007, the average global temperatures dropped by 0.595 degrees centigrade. This is a fact. The response from this group was to say (verbatim) "Twelve-month long drop in world temperatures wipes out a century of warming."

Um, no. As the charts... reveal, it does nothing of the sort.

Hmmm...Dave is trying to tell me that 2007 was the 2nd hottest year on record.
