Posted on 11/07/2010 2:13:13 PM PST by SmartInsight
The American Geophysical Union plans to announce Monday that 700 researchers have agreed to speak out on the issue. The effort is a pushback against congressional conservatives who have vowed to kill regulations on greenhouse gas emissions.
"This group feels strongly that science and politics can't be divorced and that we need to take bold measures to not only communicate science but also to aggressively engage the denialists and politicians who attack climate science and its scientists," said Scott Mandia, professor of physical sciences at Suffolk County Community College in New York.

Just crazy communists hoping for grants.
Now, why did the word ‘Krystallnacht’ pop into my head upon reading that headline??
GIANT PROPAGANDA CAMPAIGN ALERT.
They do not have any proof. Just speculation by a bunch of Taxpayer Grant Welfare Queens
It’s their get rich on the backs of the people scam. They’re not going to give it up easily.
Yes, I think you “scientists” need to continue to lobby for “hugh” grants while the country is going down the drain. Good luck with that.
The trouble with this is, they’ll be using American taxpayer dollars to “speak out” against Americans. We need some congressional hearings on this and maybe a few @$$es thrown in jail.
We have a list too;)
Love this guy!
Tad Murty, oceanographer; adjunct professor, Departments of Civil Engineering and Earth Sciences, University of Ottawa: global warming “is the biggest scientific hoax being perpetrated on humanity. There is no global warming due to human anthropogenic activities. The atmosphere hasnt changed much in 280 million years, and there have always been cycles of warming and cooling. The Cretaceous period was the warmest on earth. You could have grown tomatoes at the North Pole”
Hand me those Fed grants and I’ll “argue” that a dragon roams outer space, the moon is actually the sun and Santa Claus is real.
Now I'm a denialist, don't think I've seen that one before.
“Suffolk County Community College”
Science “R” Us
May we have another ass-biting winter with ice 6 inches thick all over DC and New York. And let it last a month...or more.
Wow - a professor from Suffolk County Community College in New York, taking a break from teaching remedial High School courses to target me and set me straight - I have to say I’m impressed !!
“This group feels strongly that science and politics can’t be divorced...”
Is there any need, at all, to read beyond that point?
Dean Yeager: “Doctor... Venkman. The purpose of science is to serve mankind. You seem to regard science as some kind of dodge... or hustle. Your theories are the worst kind of popular tripe, your methods are sloppy, and your conclusions are highly questionable! You are a poor scientist, Dr. Venkman!”
The spokesperson of world consensus scientific opinion is a community college professor?
If science and politics can't be divorced, then it really isn't about the science, it's really about what you can force other people to do at government gunpoint.
C'mon, we're talking "sceintists" here. Egg-heads. Ivory-tower dwelling, video-game-playing, milque-toasts.
'Krystallnacht' to them might as well be a brand of bottled water.
Here’s the link to his homepage: you’ll get a flavor for what he teaches and who his heroes are (hint: Realclimate.org, Michael Mann et al)
