Don’t be a Silly Billy

Imagining a public figure giving unusual responses to the media.

“You think that 9996 parts of the air have no power but that 4 bits are going to cause a catastrophe? Go out for a walk and don’t be a Silly Billy.”

“You think in the 21st century that human nature has changed since the days of Cain and Abel? Lose the progress metaphor and don’t be a Silly Billy.”

“You think that centralizing health care is a good thing? Learn something from Wikipedia and the app store and don’t be a Silly Billy.”

Must be better ways, but the tone ought to be scorn without anger.

    We’ve responded to your claims about the composition of the atmosphere on several occasions. Monatomic and homonuclear diatomic molecules are virtually unaffected by infrared energy; consequently, nitrogen, oxygen and argon are not greenhouse gases.

    Greenhouse gases, those that absorb and emit infrared radiation, include water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and ozone, each with its own thermal footprint. Carbon dioxide constitutes about a fourth of the greenhouse effect. Small changes can have a significant effect on global mean surface temperature.
