Take, for example, this comment from a popular blog;
1)no such thing as a ghgas....the ghe does not apply to the atmosphere,all gases absorb heat and all heated gases radiate heat (infrared light) in close proportion to their temperature.
2) temp lapse rate-change in temp with height as determined by gravity. 3) temp gradient is a term that refers to change in temp with height. note 2/3 are different entities,and you fail to grasp it is the sun that drives our warmth,not a gas.
So on the moon-....how does it get so hot?i mean -is it the sun by any chance? or shouldn’t the moon according to your belief...stated repeatedely-without any GHGases..be a cold rock?..

Now as you can see, "isobar" really has all bases covered.
To the untrained eye it may seem contradictory that there is "no such thing as a (greenhouse)gas" and yet "all gases absorb heat and all heated gases radiate heat". But isn't that exactly the flexibility that is missing in the so-called "peer reviewed" literature. Cohesion is just small thinking. What is wrong with holding two completely contradictory ideas at the same time?
And "isobar" follows on with some pretty cutting observations about the moon. Indeed, as he notes, "shouldn't the moon according to your belief [...] without any GHGases..be a cold rock?" I wouldn't want to be on the other side of those comments, after all there are plenty of rocks that are colder than -153°C.
