Skip to comments.Obama’s science czar: Opposing climate views outside the ‘mainstream scientific opinion’
Posted on 02/26/2014 7:08:14 PM PST by Nachum
White House science czar Dr. John Holdren wasnt in the mood to be contradicted on whether global warming was causing extreme weather. Holdren described climate scientists whose work contradicts the White Houses global warming claims as outside the scientific mainstream. Holdren was asked by Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions to cite scientific data that supported claims that droughts and other weather events were being made worse by global warming. Sessions then cited contradicting evidence from climate scientists, including former NASA scientist Dr. Roy Spencer and University of Colorado climate scientist Roger Pielke, Jr. Holdren countered that the likes of Pielke and Spencer

The idea that specific “severe weather events” are being caused by global warming is patently absurd.
I’ve seen data that storms like hurricanes and tornadoes have been fewer in recent years. When these kooks throw in a claim that a specific storm was the result of GW, they are absolutely off the wall.
LOL! Mainstream is soooo IN these days.
To paraphrase a bumpersticker: “well behaved scientists seldom make history.”
They should just go ahead and make it illegal to doubt Obama. Wouldn’t even need to pass it through congress. Obama can just make it so.
I think Hitler had a “science czar”.

We’re on a collision course with national suicide, and the whole thing is rapidly picking up steam.
Arrogance of radicals knows no limits.
So was opposing the bloodletting of patients.
So was opposing the geocentric model of planetary motion.
For many years, the treatment of ulcers was surgical, until we found out that a great many cases are caused by H. pylori and can be treated with antibiotics.
And Stalin’s favorite scientist was Trofim Lysenko.
Global warming is not settled science. But Democrats are trying to make this into settled politics. So far they have failed. The American people are not buying, they remain skeptical.
Looks like the Mahdi has found another way to ape Uncle Joe, his favorite politician of all time: he’s found his own Lysenko.

A funny thing happened on the way to global warming
HA! That’s for sure.
I know what happened to global warming. It started believing all the things people were saying about it. How important it was and so on. Global warming became puffed up and complacent. Stopped getting up early and putting in a full days work. Global warming let it slip. Started taking everything for granted.
Global warming thought it could just make it on reputation alone.
There is a very simple question that reveals the non-scientific approach, and it has to do with falsification. Specifically, if you ask someone, "What evidence would it take for you to be convinced your conclusion is in error?" and they haven't an answer, haven't even thought about it, are in complete denial that such a thing could exist, then you aren't dealing with science, but dogma. We're dealing with dogma here.
I want politicians to guarantee moderate climate all the time, no exrteme weather..ever...and please tax me whatever amount is necessary to do so. That settles it! No warming, no cooling, just bland weather all the time.
Finally it just stopped showing up.
Lavoisier said: Combustion Theory
All the truly great scientists had to go against the consensus to make their great discoveries.
They want to regulate opinions
but don’t question their patriotism
No debate --- they need no evidence --- it's all decided and if you ask any questions, you are a heretic. No dissent will be tolerated.
Follow the money.
I think back again to President Eisenhower's farewell address and the things he warned us that we should be gravely concerned about.
"The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded."
Ike was a very wise man... perhaps the last wise old man to be President. He saw this danger approaching 50+ years ago.
Extreme weather? How many tornados and hurricanes did we have last year? What was their severity?
The world has gone insane. It’s one reason I left.
Global warming needs a good swift kick in the butt to get it going again. Some tough love.
Yep. It’s like living in a Movie: Dr. Zivago without the love story.
Otherwise we will just have to relegate it to the scrap heap of history
“Shut up”, he explained.
At one time, Galileo, Keppler, and Einstein were “outside the mainstream opinion” too.

"Which way did Global Warming go 'Dr.'?"
"It rolled off the table and onto the floor, and then my poor warming rolled out of the door."
We are being led around by a group of people who are wrong about everything. Nuclear power plants actually cause global warming. They cannot possibly physically prevent warming. They can only add warmth via heat energy.
At this point the best thing we can do is get prepped, because they do not have the brains nor the integrity to prevent running into their own brick wall. And that wall is coming.
So just what are Holdren’s scientific credentials? I doubt that he is scientifically literate at all.
Even Obama’s own bought and paid for IPCC says there’s no evidence that CO2 causes extreme weather events.
Holdren is the Rasputin of American science.
He also sells Girl Scout cookies on weekends.
The “czars” should never have been funded by Congress. If you have a Republican Congressman ask him why he keeps voting for this waste of taxpayer money.
This guy is an absolute loon. His title should be “Pseudo-science czar.”
We kinda did. See my post before this one.
As someone said a few years ago, we gave up a high standard of living for a high quality of life.
