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)
Typical government welfare receiving global warming scam spiners who are communists, thieves and fools. Greenies,democrats,communists are generally all liars and thieves who intend to destroy free thinking people through any government system they can manipulate.
Show us un-twiddled science and we might want to learn more.
But, as long as you rely on fancy guesses and “consensus” you deserve the epithet of “ignorant”.
Great, another consensus.
From the article...
“Climate-change skeptics argued that the sniping in some e-mails showed that scientists suppressed research by skeptics and manipulated data. Five independent panels subsequently cleared the researchers involved and validated the science.”
WHERE? Where is this? I have yet to see the reports from the independent panels.
” Egg-heads. Ivory-tower dwelling, video-game-playing, milque-toasts. “
With the full armed might of the Federal Dictatorial Bureaucracy to add teeth to their temper-tantrums....
” Battle over global warming now turns to EPA as Obama says he will pursue other solutions “
Underestimate your enemy at your own peril....
The purpose is not to convince the skeptics, but to intimidate them — pretty soon they will be declared “heretics” and burned at the stake.
Got to love Ghost Busters!
Pull their funding. The National Science Foundation either has to be fixed, or abolished. As it is, it’s doing more harm than good, hopping on board the left wing political agenda and rewarding people for global warming, fetal stem cell research, cancer-causing contraceptives, and other bogus projects.
Yes, some of what they support is real science, but less and less of it every day. Time to go back to square one and start over.
That’s all that side does - they SPEAK OUT. They scream at us, they bully us, they lie and try to frighten the children. Lucky for them the MSM is on their side - as usual. Bad for them that no one cares what the MSM says...
One year anniversary of the climategate emails this month.
Are from the Kenyan university of science?
Are you really a "professor," if you teach physics at a community college?
Anyway, the arrogance of the education cabal never fails to delight.
Yes, but they are still working with old logic where the silent majority stayed silent.
Their problem is the paradigm has shifted and they do not realize this, yet!
“pretty soon they will be declared heretics and burned at the stake.”
Well, probably hung with hemp rope. Burning adds too much carbon, and drowning is out because of the drastic shortage of drinkable water. A firing squad involves guns, lead, and excess noise pollution.
Hanging, though, is probably OK, as long as it’s with organic hemp.
Actually, I think the best quote that applies here is; "Dr Ray Stantz: Personally, I liked the university. They gave us money and facilities, we didn't have to produce anything! You've never been out of college! You don't know what it's like out there! I've *worked* in the private sector. They expect *results*." Pretty much sums it all up.
"When do we want it?" "NOW !!!"
Grants in Danger alert!
What's the opposite of "denialist"? Dogmatist!
(h/t: Kate McMillan, for her crack about the opposite of "diversity" being university.)
Junior College Scientist? I am impressed...
It does speak the truth!
Science R Us
Hey man, don't mock them!
They are dragging out their "Big Guns"!
The AGU (American Geophysical Union) is another government union like the SEIU that should be dissolved. Everyone of these guys has their hands in our pockets.
I can’t do this because of a multitude of projects I’m working on. But I suggest as a single or continuing reporting project some FR, or even a group of Free Republicans, go through their (AGU) membership list and post their picture citing with what type of grant ammount they received, for what type of project, through what institution. As well as what conclusion of that project was arrived at (if published),and how it was reached . And post it here in Free Republic. Billions have been wasted on this pesudo scientific premise.
700 pinheads who are afraid that their 2 years of “global warming” studies at a junior college will be wasted if they aren’t able to create government jobs for themselves.
Just out of curiosity, it would be interesting to see the percentage of these 700 “scientists” who are getting full funding from the govt and who would have no jobs if they come up with research showing that the vast majority of their stats cannot be supported.
Whether your selling cars, shoes, or ideas, you can't convince someone to buy your product by using something AGAINST them.
Sorry to be so cyncial, but why should they worry? They're not trying to sell; they're trying to lobby. There's a big difference between the two. In order to make a sale, you have to convince someone to part with money - typically, their own or funds over which they're responsible - for whatever it is you're selling. Lobbyists don't have to do that. They have to convince politicians, and/or bureaucrats, to do something for (or to) someone else.
As long as politics is adversarial, which it is, that bad sales strategy will not be bad for lobbying. As you know, a sale isn't made by saying "buy this and you'll really get back at those so-and-sos that have been cutting into you." On the other hand, laws and/or regulations are often passed using that technique. Once it gets to the politicians and/or bureaucrats, it morphs into "You will save those poor people from the depradations of those so-and-so's. You can smite the wicked!"
From this angle, selling is actually cleaner.
One more point: the AGW lobbyists-with-degrees don't even need to hustle the politicians and/or bureaucrats. They just need to hustle the public-school teachers. That's what "the long march through the institutions" is all about. All ya need is a plausible-sounding high ground, and it's a'rollin'. The absurdities of yesterday become the "impractical idealism" of today and the base for coercive measures tomorrow.
After all, who would sit down with his kid and say something that has a real chance of inducing the kid to blow off his studies? What youngster would be reckless enough to have an "F in indoctrination" dogging his transcript? [Feel free to substitute "her" is appropriate.]
Get real jobs you bums!!!
