  2. Talking of cartoons, I see that WUWT have recently posted some, one of which shows their hero Monckton walking on water ! And so-called skeptics are usually the ones who claim that AGW is a religion and that those who accept it are religious followers, etc. ! How deep into denial can they be ?
