I seem to recall that Galileo was a ‘denier of scientific consensus’ in his day.
Climate deniers just don’t have their heads screwed up their collective rectums and inhale the smoke being blown up their butts.
Dogma of the Skank Whores.
Blather only a Chomsky could love.
There is not a scientific consensus. As a PhD scientist with peer-reviewed published work in climatology, I can assure you that a large number of the best scientists in physics, geology, meteorology believe that the climate activists are exaggerating the effect of man on global temperatures for political and financial reasons.
They obviously have no interest in the truth of the matter. They are moving ahead and its gonna cost us big time.
If the nut jobs had such a good thing ,why did they have to change the name from Global Warming to Climate Change and I think Algore tried to change it a few times more ,like Dirty Weather ,LOL
Like a “writer/activist” has any credibility on this subject.
Liberals of course manipulate science to advance profound irrational goals.
Climate change has not been scientifically established as a fact. All the proponents by their own admission, are guessing! If was true we’d have facts to substantiate it.
There are none. And earth’s weather patterns are still poorly understood - not to the point that it justifies controversial changes in economic and social policies.
To the author, ridicule the critics and hope they don’t notice the Climate Change Emperor Wears No Clothes. An ad hominem argument is not a sound strategy.
Is it global warming or climate change now? I forget.
Every prediction by ALGORE and his ilk has been an epic fail - no warming in 17 years, 5 million+ square miles of Arctic ice, quite a bit more than his 2008 prediction that the Arctic would be ice free in 5 years, no cat 3+ hurricanes in almost a decade, least amount of tornadic activity in my lifetime, polar bears are multiplying, Florida still above water, and on and on...
Pretty graphics and more deceptive explanations will never trump TRUTH.
When will they address the models don’t match observations, until then, these climate scientists are living in a fantasy land.
Twisted psychology = The ability to spot a con when one sees one.
You mean like there isn't any evidence of global warming to begin with?
Here in Northeast Illinois, we just had the four coldest months ON RECORD.
We've had more days below freezing (109) during the winter than any other winter. That's a record.
We've had more days start out below zero than any other winter in recorded history. Another record.
We've had more consecutive days below zero than any other time in recorded history. Another record.
The average daily temperature this winter was anywhere from 15-23 degrees below normal. On the coldest days of the winter where the temperature hit -35 degrees we were well over 50 degrees BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURE. More records shattered.
We've had the third snowiest winter on record with over 82 inches of snow (normal is 30-32 inches.)
The Great Lakes were 97% frozen over for the first time in recorded history, and they had the thickest ice ever recorded.
In fact, the Great Lakes are STILL 40% frozen over and here we are in late April. That's never happened before either.
The ice that remains on the Great Lakes isn't expected to fully melt until well into May keeping Great Lakes water temperatures well below their norms, and affecting the temperature around the Great Lakes area.
Tell me again about this "global warming" .... we could really use some here!
The author and scientists are trying to confuse uncertainty with risk and impact. Increased uncertainty decreases the ability to mitigate risks, but it does not increase the impacts.
There are so many logical fallacies in this one that it should be used as an example in Beginning Logic courses.
We can start with the understanding that there is no such thing as Scientific Consensus when applied to a Hypothesis (which AGW still is).
The fact climate models have gotten more complex doesn’t mean they have gotten more mature. As Wooden said, “do not confuse motion with progress.”
AGW is NOT a Scientific Theory. It meets zero criteria.
Thee difference is there has never been a case of wholesale bribery on both publishers and reviewers to support a Hypothesis. Even Cold Fusion, which would bring riches untold, was subject to the Scientific Process — which outed it as a sham.
In this case the message is simple: “come to this conclusion and get rich. You don’t have to worry about anyone falsifying it because the phenomena are so vague and broad that any conclusion is OK. We also are bribing the reviewers so you are good.”
Unprecedented in science.
Point in case: Alex (dim)Witt at MSNBC was interviewing a mountain specialist discussing the mishap at Mt Everest. And she honestly slipped in...”do you think we had anything to do with the miuntain’s stability?” I couldn’t believe she actually said that.
I guess I would have believed in the “consensus”, except for the fact that EVERYTHING they predicted did not occur. Just the opposite happened, so they went from “Global Warming” to “Climate Change”. Perhaps they are thinking I wouldn’t notice.
“Climate denier”? Even for a piece of blatant agitprop that’s pretty stupid. “Sure, I deny there’s a climate!” said no one ever.
