Climatism comment :
It should read:
Dr. Hansen is also the man who has probably done more to corrupt climate science than any other living human being.
And while he is occasionally given to rewriting temperature history, his concerns are based on a lifetime of rigorous atmospheric fraud that has helped to define modern climatology.
In short, his views should be afforded, at the very least, a decent respect by prison wardens and inmates alike.
Dr. Hansen is also the man who has probably done more to put global warming on the global agenda than any other living human being.
And while he is occasionally given to rhetorically jumping the shark, his concerns are based on a lifetime of rigorous atmospheric research that has helped to define modern climatology.
In short, his views should be afforded, at the very least, a decent respect by critics and admirers alike.
A survey of climate scientists by Hans von Storch, found that most believe that the discussion of climate change is driven largely by politics, and that climate change presents opportunities for economic growth.
Here are some of the comments from the scientists.
Climate change science has been captured by radicals dependent upon public money, press releases, and those who illegal change, hide, or purposely misinterpred real data. The ‘hockey stick’ is a good example.
Climate science has become too politicized, and the fault lies with the climate scientists themselves who have oversold the case for anthropogenic warming without due consideration of other factors. But maybe, the IPCC mandate and money for research have been the initiating drivers.
High profile scientific journals are heavily biased towards anthropogenic climate change, publishing mediocre papers showing anthropogenic changes and rejecting many high quality papers that attribute changes to natural causes.
A compilation of news articles on the global cooling scare of the 1970’s
Does the bullet point list for solutions to global cooling at right look familiar? It reads almost like some of the manifestos we get from warmists today, including the suspension of Democracy as the article in the Owosso Newspaper clearly demonstrates. Thanks to Poptech for the compilation.
During the 1970s the media promoted global cooling alarmism with dire threats of a new ice age. Extreme weather events were hyped as signs of the coming apocalypse and man-made pollution was blamed as the cause.
Environmental extremists called for everything from outlawing the internal combustion engine to communist style population controls. This media hype was found in newspapers, magazines, books and on television;
