Researchers call White House Climate report 'pseudoscience'
Americanthinker.com ^ | 5/7/2014 | Rick Moran

Posted on 05/07/2014 6:58:22 AM PDT by rktman

The White House issued its thrid National Climate Assessment (NCA) yesterday to much fanfare and an avalanche of positive press. But two climate researchers, scientists Patrick Michaels and Paul Knappenberger of the libertarian Cato Institute, called out the administration for relying on faulty data and non-scientist input.

Haven’t these researchers heard? The debate is over.

I read somewhere the other day that this would be the “final” report. That is until the next “final” report comes out.

Hasn’t been a big hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico since Ike in 2008; and just 1-2 small ones since. Therefore global warming no longer exists.

I wasn’t surprised to turn on the morning news and find two of the networks babbling on about the latest report at the same time. What did surprise me was that on one of the shows they had famed physicist Michio Kaku supporting this foolishness. He usually seems like a sensible man.

It has become frightening like real Salem witch trial days, hearing these kooks say that every individual rainstorm is proof of global warming.

In a good poker game....you double down.

So in this case....I suggest the following.

We admit global climate something, and then advance the problem that the White House and Capital are around 140 feet above sea level. Within forty to sixty years...they will be underwater. Whether true or not...we believe it because of the ‘science’ involved.

We then demand that they now present plans to move the WH and capital to Missouri. Start the project in the House and simply go and mandate the government must purchase 50,000 acres in central Missouri for WH/Capital II. Call it the new DC project, and really hype how it’s necessary. Allocation? I’d figure on 400 billion over the next twenty years.

Yeah, let’s go full-turbo, and make them sign onto the fake science, or else deny it. And if they buy into it....all the better....we will move the WH into the heartland and introduce them to real people, and turn DC within three or four decades into Detroit II.

It’s not pseudoscience, it’s Lysenko science. Purely political in nature to meet one or more political agendas. Trofim and Old Joe would be proud of those who have taken up their methods of tyranny in the name of science.

Sometimes highly educated people prove that being highly educated doesn’t prevent one from being a total idiot.

“It’s not pseudoscience, it’s Lysenko science.”

As proof of how right you are, the Global Alarmists, and so-called science researchers, claim as proof that their “Theoretical Evidence” proves man made global warming.

What is “Theoretical Evidence?” Theory is neither science or evidence. It is just a hypothesis. It is an oxymoron cited by morons.

Funny thing about liberals, especially man made global warming fanatics. They are avid conspiracy “Truthers” unless there is an actual conspiracy.

Let’s see.... 9/11 = inside job. Kennedy Assassination = CIA. Iraq War = Bush Lied about WMDs as revenge. And let’s not forget Hillary’s delusional faith in a “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” concerning the media that she thinks hates her.

But move to REAL LIFE conspiracies, cover-ups and shenanigans and a liberal can go to extremes to whistle past a graveyard. Willful ignorance or fraud? I don’t know. IRS intimidation = Didn’t happen. NSA spying on citizens = It’s good for us. Clinton/Lewinski pergery = Private matter. Fast & Furious = which hunt. Benghazi = Old news & which hunt. Man Made Global Warming = All the scientists they’ve ever heard of says it that evil man produced CO2.

Ironically, I have learned that MOST knuckle dragging, drooling, liberal lemmings do not even know or understand the significance of CO2 as a very necessary, and naturally occurring, life sustaining chemical for our planet. They actually equate it to cyanide or DDT (which is another issue all together). They certainly no nothing of the science beyond what they are fed as talking points, starting with ALL scientists agree....

I recently listened to a so-called engineering student/law school student proclaim that the he “was very familiar with the scientific method” and that deniers knew nothing of science. When asked how man made global warming science fit THE scientific method, he cited the computer models as the PROOF. This is the level of arrogant stupidity republicans and conservatives are trying to compromise on issues with. Liberald routinely get their participation trophies on the issues via MSM reinforcement and virtual pats on the head for being a smart follower of “their” truth.

Try explaining to the average liberal that fish actually breath oxygen too. This is how shallow they are on the issues.

I would go one better. I would accuse the left of using global warming as a tool for population control. Their fix would create a global cooling effect which would kill millions.

This is why in all of their reports they fail to say what the steps are for cooling the planet, how much the planet will actually cool and what happens if they cool it too much and an ice age ensues.

Their answer will have to be increase fossil fuel use. But since we no longer have that option, theoretically their mistake can destroy humanity. And trusting climate to scientists who only 30 years earlier predicted catastrophe is a dangerous proposition without more research.

Screw them at their own game.

Agreed. And why do people assume a physicist knows his butt from a post-hole about climate science? I'll stick with the paleo-climate record and people trained in objective climate disciplines.

May 7 6AM it was 24 degrees in Upstate NY. I can’t recall the last time the climate was this disruptingly cold in May.
