Exchange with George Rebane

I've had an exchange with local contrarian George Rebane this past week, that I found illuminating - he turns out to be one of those fellows who holds a contrarian view (that "it's the sun [that's been causing the observed global warming]") (which is false - Ed.), and leads you to believe that he's holding it for scholarly reasons, but when you ask what evidence he's basing it on, that he finds most persuasive, unilaterally decides there's no point in pursuing the dialogue.

Here's where it started (I asked what science info sources he relied on, and what sources he'd recommend to others); then it played out on his blog (where it started out nebulous and "like soft snow", but clarified as the exchange progressed.)

He has grandchildren.
