Global Warming Denialism Just Foolishness, Scientist Peter Raven Says
U.S. prestige falling as world has pretty well given up on any American leadership facing climate change.
Natures Edge Notebook #23
Observation, Analysis, Reflection, New Questions
One of the worlds most widely known and respected senior scientists tells ABC News that current denial about the basic daunting realities of manmade global warming is just foolishness.
He also reports that the rest of the world has now pretty well given up on its hope for U.S. leadership in dealing with global climate change.
His assessment reinforces our findings at the recent global climate summit in Durban, South Africa, that the vigorous anti-climate science movement in the United States has significantly damaged American prestige among European leaders who are struggling to deal with the daunting impacts of global warming.
Peter Raven, co-inventor in 1964, along with biologist Paul R. Ehrlich, of the bedrock concept of co-evolution (see footnote below), has long been a trusted adviser of American presidents, many other heads of state and government, religious leaders including popes, and countless congressional, academic and scientific leaders in the United States and around the world.

Yep, that grant money always amounts to some kind of trouble. It’d be curious to go back and find where we started handing out science grant money. I doubt if it was going on in the 1920s or prior.
“He also reports that the rest of the world has now pretty well given up on its hope for U.S. leadership in dealing with global climate change.”
Then let the “rest of the world” implement all of the kooky measures they want to fight the weather.
Unless this whole thing was nothing more than some scam to cripple the U.S. economy and standard of living in order to redistribute our wealth to 3rd world dumps.
And how does this differ from treatment of non-believers during the Spanish Inquisition?
Yes, fighting mother nature, and the past and ongoing history of the world, is going to change nothing. Except of course, giving nutcase liberals a reason to exist and deny the rights of others.....
So what is new, right?
Yes. Just Foolishness.
Plummetting temperatures worldwide shows that Mother Nature is only 'Just Foolishness.
The people who produced the emails that show collaborative 'scientific' fraud as regards Glow-Bull Warming? 'Just Foolishness'.
Individuals that point out that Solar Maximums and Minimums are the true source of temperature variations? You guessed it: 'Just Foolishness'.
Raven, you are the worst kind of ass. You have NOTHING to do with science.
Senior Scientist = Junior Birdman.....”Up In The Airrrr UPSIDE DOWN!”
“U.S. leadership” is codespeak for “U.S. money.”
The commie “manmade climate change” believers have taken up a new tactic. Insulting Americans. Yeah! That’ll work. LOL! I’ve always known those loony, “manmade climate change” believers weren’t very bright.
Well, listening to these insufferable boors is sheer torture, so I guess it doesn't differ much at all. Personally I prefer the rack.
Europe has significantly cut back on green energy projects, more so than us. Plus, they are "struggling to deal with the daunting aspects" of one of the worst winters in memory, where whole towns were cut off and homes buried in snow, in normally moderate winter areas.
Another botanist with expertise in climate science.
That said, he authored (or co-authored, I forget) just about the finest botany textbook one could ever read.
That does not excuse the good Dr. Raven, however, from the anti-scientific-method pot banging and fear-mongering alarmism that is global warmism.
(In fact, it makes it worse, as he knows how science works, and knows that that Alinskyesque squashing of dissent is contrary to our basic science principles, and is really no different from faking results.)
Just when we were all comfortable thinking the world is round, the warmers come along demanding we all think it is flat again. Ignore them until they go away. Sounds like that is beginning to happen.
This BS starts as soon as the weather gets warmer.
.....because a Doctor of Botany knows so much about Meteorology.
