Kerry: Climate Change Deniers Believe ‘Earth is Flat’
Pundit Press ^ | 2/16/14 | Aurelius

Posted on 02/16/2014 12:51:04 PM PST by therightliveswithus

John Kerry slammed “extreme” climate change “deniers” in Indonesia Sunday, calling them members of the “Flat Earth Society.”

Mr. Kerry, speaking in Jakarta, demonized those who do not believe in climate change, claiming they were “hijacking the climate conversation” and were being paid by “big companies.”

“We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and science and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts,” he warned. “Nor should we allow any room for those who think that the costs associated with doing the right thing outweigh the benefits.”

Mr. Kerry then exclaimed, “The science is unequivocal, and those who refuse to believe it are simply burying their heads in the sand. We don’t have time for a meeting anywhere of the Flat Earth Society.”

Not only is the Earth flat, it’s also carried on the back of a giant tortoise swimming through the cosmic ether for eternity.

And yes, it’s turtles all the way down.

“We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and science and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts,” he warned.

The ultimate irony.
This is precisely the strongest and thus far irrefutable argument that the "extreme deniers" constantly present.

Self proclaimed 'scientists' who still have no idea what the essence of science is!

Surprised he didn't claim all those volcanos and earthquakes popping off down there are caused by global warming/climate change and that it can be stopped if they'll just pay more taxes.

I was taught that our weather/climate is in a constant state of flux because of the tilt of the Earth's axis. Always has been and always will be and that is one of the things that makes life as we know it possible.

Liberalism is based on feelings—Not logic or data.

Which is why attack is the default response whenever any aspect of liberalism is questioned.

I’m not following what you’re trying to say. We are the “extreme deniers” and the quote you used was made by the warmists. Also I think I refuted it quite handily.

Kerry has things backwards.

The “flat earth” believing folks did not have science on their side, they had an orthodox belief system - go away evidence, the earth is flat. That’s like just like the “man made” global warming folks.

Looks like Superior and Huron are pretty much covered, Michigan has a little way to go yet. On the up side, it’s limiting “lake effect snow”.

I wonder whether Lurch has ever bothered to read the NT, specifically Apostle Peter’s writings? Of course, he probably worships “mother earth” nowadays....and stumps for the increased slaughter of infants in the womb. But surely, as a yout, and a good Catholic lad, he must have read Scripture....or not!

I’m specifically alluding to 2nd Peter 3:8-13 where the Apostle clearly warns that this old planet, which has been stained and besmirched by sin, and EVERYTHING ON IT, will be burned up and replaced by a NEW EARTH, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Picture the enormity of that, while he frantically twists his hankie and moans in great angst over the possibility that a glacier is melting....which truly isn’t even happening, I might add.

OK!! Everybody pay attention!

Lesson for today:

1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.

2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.

3. The earth is one of the sun’s planets.

4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.

5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.

Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?

What they really mean is anthropogenic climate change. That human beings are changing the climate.

All I have to do is look at the ice ages to know that climate changes. What’s surprising about that? Nothing.

But does my Volkswagen jetta change the climate?

We could give every person in the world a fifth acre lot, house, and garage, and put them all between Texas and the East Coast. The entire world of people.

That would leave an awful lot of empty space. Folks, there’s an awful lot of empty space out there even with the people scattered around here and there.

Climate change is the new communism. Liberals think it’s inevitable but in a few decades they’ll be trying to change the subject anytime it’s brought up.

” - - - “The science is unequivocal, - - - “

This is a statement that a Scientist does not ever make.

We as Scientists are always skeptical, and continually try to find a better test of an idea.

Global Warming, Global Cooling and Climate Change are all ideas that Politicians have used to extort tax dollars from the populations of their various Countries.

None of the three above mentioned Weather ideas has had a single, objectively testable, documented, published, Cause and Effect.

GW, GC and CC have all failed to move from junk science speculation to the higher level of a serious hypothesis.

All three weather speculations are just that: weather speculations.

Climate Change Dictionary :

PEER REVIEW: The act of banding together a group of like-minded academics with a funding conflict of interest, for the purpose of squeezing out any research voices that threaten the multi-million dollar government grant gravy train.

SETTLED SCIENCE: Betrayal of the scientific method for politics or money or both.

DENIER: Anyone who suspects the truth.

CLIMATE CHANGE: What has been happening for billions of years, but should now be flogged to produce ‘panic for profit.’

NOBEL PEACE PRIZE: Leftist Nutcase Prize, unrelated to “Peace” in any meaningful way.

DATA, EVIDENCE: Unnecessary details. If anyone asks for this, see “DENIER,” above.

CLIMATE SCIENTIST: A person skilled in spouting obscure, scientific-sounding jargon that has the effect of deflecting requests for “DATA” by “DENIERS.” Also skilled at affecting an aura of “Smartest Person in the Room” to buffalo gullible legislators and journalists.

JUNK SCIENCE: The use of invalid scientific evidence resulting in findings of causation

EXPERT: Career Politician who has no scientific credentials or training, but who stands to profit greatly from peddling the latest academic snake oil.

The amusing thing is that this relies the the historically and scientifically ignorant myth that there was a widespread belief that the earth was flat until the age of exploration.

In fact, the roundness of the earth has been well known since ancient times.
http://scienceblogs.com/startswithabang/2011/09/21/who-discovered-the-earth-is-ro/

It’s an example of the scientifically-illiterate using misinformation to advance a scientifically dubious position.
