Why Can't Conny Think Critically?

So on a friend's Facebook page I encounterd one of the most ridiculous forms of "Logic" I've seen in weeks from one of his "Friends". The fact that Al Gore has made money was cited as evidence that Global Warming isn't real.
This is the kind of magical "thinking" that prevails on the FuxSnooze, nose-led right. Newsflash! The only people making big money that has anything to do with climate change are those who are profiting from the industry that removes carbon from the ground and puts it in the air and that wants to make sure that their reserves continue to be emitted for fun and profit. And other than the denial industry Paid Punditry of the GOPropagandists, that is no conspiricy, it's plain old Evil Greed at the expense of our Progeny, which is an insult to our Ancestors!
So I offered the following:

Here is the equation that was im F=5.35 ln C.

It was developed by Nobel prise winning physicist Svante Arrenius in 1896. It is emperically PROVEN that adding more carbon to air will cause it to absorb more heat from the sun. Indisputably!

You know what else is empirically proven? That humans have removed trillions of metric tons of carbon that was safely sequestered in the gound and put it in the atmosphere thus raising the atmospheric carbon concentration. Indisputably!

You know what else is indisputable? The some people think they can keep their finger in the dike of reality with simple denial, it's only a theory they say. Well electromagnetism is only a theory, so go stick a fork in a wall socket. Gravitation is only a theory, so climb up on the roof and take flying leap, Sheesh!

His response?

We're just going to disagree on this one...and I will not resort to name calling or derogatory, personal attacks like some folks...

Anyone who looks at the data on both sides will come to the the conclusion that Catastophic Man Made Warming is a compl
ete hoax. However, the Warmists will not only refuse to listen to any contrary arguments, they will also fight to prevent others from hearing anything that contradicts their dogma. This is all about CONTROL! Controlling what light bulb you can use, what toilet or car you have, etc.

I see you follow Breitbart Sean C,C. Have a look here in case you missed it...

(NOTE: I haven't looked at that @$hole Breitbart in at least a dozen years, so I don't know where that comes from, must have looked me up the Googles I guess. But as a geologist I can tell you that equating natural climate fluctuations with anthropogenic climate change which result from totally different cause and operate on completely different time scales is exactly the kind of fodder fed to the feebleminded.)

My response:

No Mike, 97% of the scientists who actually study the subject agree that we are causing the planet to heat up. There is neither equal quality information, nor honest motives on both sides, it's completely lopsided. I suggest that you investigate who the Merchants of Doubt are. Remember when tobacco didn't cause cancer? Yes, those people:

What I presented above are some scientific FACTS. Facts that you have neither disputed nor provided any countervailing, vetted informtion. I don't believe that you can, but I'd like to at least see an attempt.. What you've presented above is a layman's opinion based on nothing, which is exactly what it's worth.

Which begs the question once again, Why Can't Conny Debate?

Nemo, You should know that long experience has informed me that there is no useful point in taking the time or effort to read your integrity bereft posts, let alone in responding to them. So I don't, I simply obliterate them. But I am entertained by making various explosion noises as I depress the "Delete" button! So by all means please troll your little heart away.
