January, 2018, Part 4, I Am A Global Warming Doubter and a Believer In Science: Threatening Those With Words and Actions Who Are Non-Believers

Every month we have enough material to return to a continuing theme in this blog, namely that “I am a global warming doubter AND a believer in science.” This became of interest because of people like Al Gore who fanatically and verbosely claimed that you had to be an idiot to not believe in manmade global warming. It has been my life belief that anyone that is that loud and that obnoxious is hiding something, that rather than argue facts and reality it is better to beat down and insult anyone who disagrees.

As we have dove into the whole issue of manmade global warming, or its new rebranded title of climate change, we found that Al Gore and people like him were guilty of a number of things:
  • Ignoring science and realities that did not support their opinions and positions.
  • Rather than have an adult conversation about climate, these types of advocates like Gore sank to the level of insulting those who dared look at ALL science by calling them a variety of names including racists, homophobes, terrorists, flat earth believers, and other slanderous names.
  • Continuing to insist that politicians step up their intrusions into our lives with higher taxes, more regulations, and more control of our freedoms and standards of living based on a shaky theory at best.
To see the past posts and the multitude of evidence that we have compiled that showed it is perfectly okay to be a global warming doubter and a believer in science, enter the phrase "global warming doubter” in the search box above or go through the monthly historical posts listed on the right side of this page.

Thus, let’s see the latest facts and science that prove you can be a global warming doubter and a believer in science, regardless of what Al Gore proclaims. Before we do that though, take a look at the previous three posts we have done on this theme this month at the following links:




By looking at real data from real scientists who did real research we now know that:
  1. The global warming trend stopped about 20 years ago.
  2. We know that the severity and number of hurricanes and cyclones worldwide is declining.
  3. We know that the severity and number of wildfires worldwide is declining.
  4. We know that the severity and number of droughts worldwide is declining.
  5. We know that the severity and number of major floods worldwide is declining.
  6. We know that rather than disappearing, the ice caps are still there and are still wide ranging and very cold.
  7. We know that global sea levels have risen very little compared to what was predicted.
  8. And most of all, we now know that EVERY major man made global warming/climate change forecast regarding temperatures, hurricanes, wildfires, droughts, floods, the ice caps and sea levels has been very wrong, embarrassingly wrong.
Given the realities of the failure of global warming advocates in the face of real data, real, science, real research and basic reality, you would have hoped they would have packed up their bags and moved on to other, hopefully real issues facing humanity. 

But alas, rather than admit they were wrong and go away, consider what some global warming advocates are saying, threatening, slandering, and generally acting like two year olds who did not get their way. In the process of the rants and threats you will read below, consider what a disservice they have done to the world of science by cherry picking only select data and research that satisfy their own biased views rather than looking at all the data and research:
  • Two years ago, then Secretary of State John Kerry took a swipe at those of us that are global warming doubters but believers in science: “The science tells us unequivocally, those who continue to make climate change a political fight put us all at risk. And we cannot sit idly by and allow them to do that.”
  • Mr. Kerry: the science is not unequivocal, see the three links above and is that a veiled threat of violence, “we cannot stand idly by and let them do that?”
  • Kerry went on to again try and assert that “science” tells us that global warming is real when we know a ton of scientists that would vehemently disagree: ”So when science tells us that our climate is changing and human beings are largely causing that change, by what right do people stand up and just say, ‘well, I dispute that, or I deny that elementary truth?’”
  • But this is what some people do when they cannot argue facts, they either threaten and name call or they try to assert they are on the right side of the facts when they are not but stating things like “when science tells us.”
  • In a direct attack on the First Amendment, somehow a U.S. Senator, Sheldon Whitehouse, actually declared that those who are global warming doubters but believers in science should be arrested and prosecuted under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), you know the law used to prosecute real gangsters and real criminals. 
  • This is a real dangerous, freedom restricting idea to have, declaring that Americans should be thrown in jail for voicing an opinion.
  • The Talking Points Memo website once published an article (that apparently has since been removed,) that had the ominous title, “At what point do we jail or execute global warming deniers.”
  • This article actually promoted violence against fellow human beings that dared to not be a global warming advocate: “What is so frustrating about these fools is that they are the politicians and greedy bastards who don’t want a cut in their profits who use bogus science or the lowest scientists in the gene pool who will distort data for a few bucks. The vast majority of the scientific minds in the World agree and understand it’s a very serious problem that can do an untold amount of damage to life on Earth.So when the right wing f***tards have caused it to be too late to fix the problem, and we start seeing the devastating consequences and we start seeing end of the World type events — how will we punish those responsible. It will be too late. So shouldn’t we start punishing them now?”
  • James Hansen, a famous man made global warming advocate, called for prosecution of global warming doubters for “high crimes against humanity.”
  • Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., famous for his irrational environmental extremism, has said of global warming doubters: “This is treason, and we need to start treating them as traitors.”
  • Joe Romm, a former Clinton administration official who now operates the global warming advocate website Climate Progress, once published a commenter who threatened climate skeptics: “It is not my wrath you need fear when there’s an entire generation that will soon be ready to strangle you and your kind while you sleep in your beds.” 
  • Bill Nye, the famous “The Science Guy” and someone who I believe has a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, which has virtually nothing to do with climate science, has publicly stated: “Part of the solution to this problem or this set of problems associated with climate change is getting the deniers out of our discourse. You know, we can’t have these people — they’re absolutely toxic.”
  • Nye actually signed a letter along with others that was sent to major media companies that advocated those media companies identify global warming advocates as deniers, that somehow people like myself who are global warming doubters but believers in science are somehow too stupid to recognize the obvious, that we are not skeptics we are flat out deniers. 
  • Two of the signers of the letter were the two people that published the ludicrous study that “97%” of climate scientists agree that man made global warming is real and substantial, a statistic that we and many others have shown to be horse manure:
https://loathemygovernment.blogspot.com/2017/06/june-2017-part-3-i-am-global-warming.html

So when you cannot defend your position with science and facts it is pretty obvious that global warming advocates will sink to really disgusting levels including shredding the First Amendment, threatening violence, and insulting others with name calling and slurs. In doing so, they degrade and insult science.

January, 2018, Part 3, I Am A Global Warming Doubter and a Believer In Science: How Science Continues To Dispel The Global Warming Myth

Every month we have enough material to return to a continuing theme in this blog, namely that “I am a global warming doubter AND a believer in science.” This became of interest because of people like Al Gore who fanatically and verbosely claimed that you had to be an idiot to not believe in manmade global warming. It has been my life belief that anyone that is that loud and that obnoxious is hiding something, that rather than argue facts and reality it is better to beat down and insult anyone who disagrees.

As we have dove into the whole issue of manmade global warming, or its new rebranded title of climate change, we found that Al Gore and people like him were guilty of a number of things:

  • Ignoring science and realities that did not support their opinions and positions.
  • Rather than have an adult conversation about climate, these types of advocates like Gore sank to the level of insulting those who dared look at ALL science by calling them a variety of names including racists, homophobes, terrorists, flat earth believers, and other slanderous names.
  • Continuing to insist that politicians step up their intrusions into our lives with higher taxes, more regulations, and more control of our freedoms and standards of living based on a shaky theory at best.
To see the past posts and the multitude of evidence that we have compiled that showed it is perfectly okay to be a global warming doubter and a believer in science, enter the phrase "global warming doubter” in the search box above or go through the monthly historical posts listed on the right side of this page.

Thus, let’s see the latest facts and science that prove you can be a global warming doubter and a believer in science, regardless of what Al Gore proclaims.

1) The most important reason why we should not take people like Al Gore and his ilk seriously is that they have always been wrong. Over the past two decades global warming advocates have forecasted major, extensive climate disasters. Al Gore even predicted that there would be an excellent chance that within five years the North Pole ice cap would be totally melted. Those five years expired about four years ago and the ice cap is still there and still very cold, as witnessed by the recent arctic weather. 

Other forecasts predicted that coastal city streets would be flooded by the melting ice caps (they are not), that the number and severity of hurricanes would increase significantly (they have not), etc. But none of that happened and there is a good reason for that: the warming trend unexpectedly stopped about twenty years, a reality that every global warming scientist and forecast model totally and embarrassingly never saw coming:

  • According to an article on the Conservative Tribune website on September 17, 2017 by John Falkenberg, real scientists compared actual, real Earth temperatures over the past 15 years and compared the realities to the predicted temperatures form the major global warming forecast models.
  • What they found is that the Earth’s temperature basically stopped rising after the year 2000, contrary to everything Al Gore told us would happen, severely crippling his and other global warming advocates’ credibility.
  • The study results were published in the publication nature Geoscience.
  • The study results came about as researchers analyzed satellite data over the years.
  • Michael Grubb, a professor of international energy and climate change at University College London, an original global warming advocate and scientist, and one of the authors of the study, even admitted that his initial belief in man made global warming was wrong: “When the facts change, I change my mind, as (John Maynard) Keynes said.” 
  • Myles Allen, professor of geosystem science at the University of Oxford, and another author of the study: “We haven’t seen that rapid acceleration in warming after 2000 that we see in the models. We haven’t seen that in the observations.”
  • A previous article in Nature Geoscience in May, 2017 came to the same conclusion: “In the early twenty-first century, satellite-derived tropospheric warming trends were generally smaller than trends estimated from a large multi-model ensemble.”
Real scientists looking at realdata to prove that manmade global warming forecasts were REALLY bad, REALLY wrong, and REALLY useless. And still, non-scientists like Al Gore continue to try to contort, manipulate, and deny that they were wrong and that it is highly likely that manmade global warming is a myth.

2) Let’s continue looking at real climate data via a recent article in the Wall Street Journal on January 13, 2018 by Benny Peiser and Matt Ridley:

  • Although the U.S. got hit with some really bad weather in 2017, e.g. Hurricane Irma, leading global warming advocates hysterically like to claim that this is what happens when manmade global warming occurs, from a total Earth perspective, 2017 was a very calm climate and weather year.
  • On average, the Earth experiences 325 catastrophic natural disasters annually but through November of 2017 only about 250 occured, about 25% below normal, something that global warming advocates would not expect or predict.
  • These real numbers come from research done by the Centre For Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters at the University of Leuven in Belgium.
  • Not only were there about 25% fewer natural disasters last year but one third fewer people died on average as a result of them.
  • Although a lot of record high temperatures were set around the world the past three years, much of that was due to a huge El Nino warm weather cycle that had established itself in the Pacific Ocean.
  • As the El Nino dissipated so did the high temperatures and with the weather cycle gone, temperatures have returned to pre El Nino levels.
  • Now, although global warming advocates could make a case that man made global warming caused the higher than average intensity of the El Nino, they never predicted that situation, further damaging their credibility that they understand climate and according to historical records, there have similar intense El Ninos throughout history, long before Al Gore claims that manmade global warming started. You cannot say "I told you so" after the fact.
  • Back in 1990, the global warming advocates predicted that the Earth’s average temperature would rise 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit but it has risen only a fraction of that forecast and since 2000 has risen very little if at all.
  • When Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast in 2017, it ended a 12 year period with no major hurricane hitting the U.S., a drought of major hurricanes that was not supposed to happen according to manmade global warming forecasts and hysteria.
  • In fact, global hurricane/cyclone activity as measured by the Accumulated Cyclone Energy index, which combines intensity and number of hurricanes, is running at about 20% below its long term average. 
  • In 2017, that index was at less than half of its long term average for the Southern hemisphere.
  • Although California suffered through some terrible wildfires in 2017, long term, the trend of wildfires is down, contrary to global warming advocates’ predictions.
  • According to expert Jon Kelley at UCLA, the number of wildfires has been trending down for forty years.
  • In 2016, the Britain's Royal Society showed research that the global area burned by wildfires has also trended downwards over the past few decades.
  • From a drought perspective, data compiled by the scientific journal, Science, found that the the proportion of the world suffering from lower than average rainfall is down slightly since the 1980s, something that should not have happened according to global warming advocates since manmade global warming should have parched a lot more of the Earth.
  • A 2017 study published by Glenn. Hodges of the U.S. Geological Society found that the number of major floods in Europe and the U.S. has not increased in 80 years while worldwide flooding instances have decreased over time.
  • While global warming advocates have forecasted that Asia's monsoon seasons would get dryer and dryer over time, inreality, according to a study by MIT scientists Qinjian Jin and Chien Wang, monsoons have actually gotten stronger over the past 15 years and since the 2012 monsoon season, monsoon has increased significantly.
  • Since the most recent El Nino ended, the U.S. National Snow and Ice Center reports that the North and South poles have recovered almost all of their shrunken ice volume, increasing to 21.2 million square kilometers, up from 19. 65 square kilometers in just a few years.
  • The Center does report that while the South Pole has been adding ice coverage over the years, the North Pole has been losing ice coverage but that the North Pole ice erosion has been so small that it has had no effect on sea levels.
  • And finally, according to NASA, global sea levels have hardly changed at all since 2015, not a situation predicted by global warming models.
  • The rise since 1998 has been 3.2 millimeters per year but the rate has not accelerated over time despite predictions by global warming advocates and as we just said, the rise has stopped since 2015.
  • And even if the 3.2 rate should start again, that would result in only a one foot rise over the next 100 years, more than enough cushion to fix shore lines if needed.
A great article featuring real data from real research from real scientists and scientific institutions. So who do you believe: these scientific results or former politician Al Gore? More realities that reinforce my stance that I am a global warming doubter and a believer in science.

January, 2018, Part 2, I Am A Global Warming Doubter and A Believer In Science: Stupid Grandstanding by NYC Mayor and Why The Paris Climate Accords Are Doomed

Every month we have enough material to return to a continuing theme in this blog, namely that “I am a global warming doubter AND a believer in science.” This became of interest because of people like Al Gore who fanatically and verbosely claimed that you had to be an idiot to not believe in manmade global warming. It has been my life belief that anyone that is that loud and that obnoxious is hiding something, that rather than argue facts and reality it is better to beat down and insult anyone who disagrees.

As we have dove into the whole issue of manmade global warming, or its new rebranded title of climate change, we found that Al Gore and people like him were guilty of a number of things:
  • Ignoring science and realities that did not support their opinions and positions.
  • Rather than have an adult conversation about climate, these types of advocates like Gore sank to the level of insulting those who dared look at ALL science by calling them a variety of names including racists, homophobes, terrorists, flat earth believers, and other slanderous names.
  • Continuing to insist that politicians step up their intrusions into our lives with higher taxes, more regulations, and more control of our freedoms and standards of living based on a shaky theory at best.
To see the past posts and the multitude of evidence that we have compiled that showed it is perfectly okay to be a global warming doubter and a believer in science, enter the phrase "global warming doubter” in the search box above or go through the monthly historical posts listed on the right side of this page.

Thus, let’s see the latest facts and science that prove you can be a global warming doubter and a believer in science, regardless of what Al Gore proclaims.

1) As readers of this blog know, we have had serious doubts about the whole global warming/climate change myth for a while. Every forecast that global warming advocates have put forth over the past two decades has been grossly wrong, embarrassingly wrong. And yet, these people still insist that they know what they are talking about despite this pitiful track record.

Given this background of failure, let’s go over to New York City and its socialist mayor, Bill de Blasio. While reading the following, keep in mind that NYC has many of the same problems plaguing the rest of the country’s cities: crime, failing schools, homelessness, crumbling infrastructure, drug addiction, etc. And yet, according to a recent article on the Eagle Rising website:
  • de Blasio announced that his city was going to sue five big oil companies for their alleged part in global warming.
  • Yes, rather than working and dedicating his life to fixing what affects millions of NYC citizens TODAY, he is wasting time and effort on a myth that even if true would not likely affect today’s citizens ever.
  • In addition, he ordered the city’s pension funds to not invest any money from the pension fund in oil company stocks, possibly limiting the potential return for the retirees of city government, hurting their future financial well being.
  • Here is his insanity: “New York City is standing up for future generations by becoming the first major U.S. city to divest our pension funds from fossil fuels. At the same time, we’re bringing the fight against climate change straight to the fossil fuel companies that knew about its effects and intentionally misled the public to protect their profits. As climate change continues to worsen, it’s up to the fossil fuel companies whose greed put us in this position to shoulder the cost of making New York safer and more resilient.”
  • He claims that when he wins his case the oil company penalties will be used to protect the city’s infrastructure from climate change.
If de Blasio really wanted to make a brave statement what he should do is not allow those oil companies to have a presence in the city. That would show them and really show the world that NYC is serious about fighting those greedy oil companies. Cut off their revenue source. No gas, no heating oil, no natural gas, that will show the world how the mayor is “standing up for future generations.”

Of course he is not going to do this, too gutless. He needs the oil companies to run his city fleets and keep its citizens warm in the winter. This is just another ego feeding, petty, and stupid grandstanding by a politician that would rather get his name in the paper associated with a likely myth than serve his constituents. Pathetic leadership.

2) Before Obama left office, he saddled this country with something called the Paris Climate Accords, an international agreement that was supposed to save the world from manmade global warming/climate change. There were three big problems with this accord:
  • Even Al Gore admitted that the accord would do nothing on its own to stop manmade global warming, assuming manmade global warming is even a reality. Thus, why have an agreement to stop something when that agreement will do nothing to stop that something?
  • The United States and its taxpayers would be making most of the sacrifices and paying out billions of dollars visa a blackmail/extortion scheme to other countries in the hope that the dictators in those countries would actually use that blackmail money to reduce their country’s carbon footprint. Not likely.
  • And finally, is manmade global warming, climate change even a reality?
Once Trump became President he withdrew the United States from the accords for the three reasons listed above, not wanting to throw good taxpayer dollars at dictators around the world and at a problem or disadvantage the United States relative to the economies of China and India. Those countries got off pretty free of short term needs to curb their carbon footprint and economies.

Of course, Trump got crucified by global warming advocates even though he pulled us out of an agreement that even they/Al Gore admitted would do NOTHING to curb rising temperatures, something that has basically not happened in almost twenty years. But according to a recent article by Nicolas Loris, writing for the Heritage Foundation on January 11, 2018, maybe Trump was just ahead of his time:
  • Germany, a country that did agree to the Paris climate accords, has decided that it will not meets its 2020 climate target as set out in the accords.
  • Germany was supposed to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 40% below 1990 levels by the year 2020.
  • However, late last year a secret government document got out from the country’s Environmental Ministry saying that the country would miss that mark by 8% despite generous subsidies to foster green, renewable power sources.
  • The Ministry lamented that missing the targets would be “a disaster for Germany’s international reputation as a climate leader.” 
  • This shows how weak the accords were since there will be no penalty for Germany missing its 2020 target.
  • But Germany is not alone since according to a 2017 article from Nature.com, the entire European Union “faces a big gap between words and actions.”
  • In other words, the accords are falling apart, at least from a European perspective within just a few short years after they were agreed to.
So possibly Trump was right in pulling us out of the accords since many developed countries are already out of alignment with what they were supposed to do, indicating that this was a stupid set of accords to agree to in the first place. 

But it is not the developed countries that are the real problem with the accords since. There is general agreement that even if the developed countries hit their targets, which it appears they will not do, that would not be enough to stave off climate disaster unless the developing countries, mostly India and China, control their ever growing carbon footprints. Consider what the Financial Times recently reported: “Between January 2014 and September 2017, international banks channeled $630 [billion] to the top 120 companies planning to build new coal plants around the world, according to research by campaign groups, including the Rainforest Action Network, BankTrack, and Friends of the Earth.”

You can be sure that each of those 120 companies is not building only one coal plant, they are likely building hundreds if not thousands of coal plants which is legal and proper according to the stupid Paris accords. So if we had stayed in the accords, we/the American taxpayer would have been paying ransom to the rest of the world, the rest of the world would either be unable (e.g. Germany) to help reduce carbon output or would not be required to reduce their carbon footprint (e.g.China and India) and the climate would be no better off. Americans would just be poorer.

More global warming insanity to follow.

January, 2018, Part 1, I Am A Global Warming Doubter and a Believer In Science: Warming Causes Cold And Scientific American Abandons Science Principles

Every month we have enough material to return to a continuing theme in this blog, namely that “I am a global warming doubter AND a believer in science.” This became of interest because of people like Al Gore who fanatically and verbosely claimed that you had to be an idiot to not believe in manmade global warming. It has been my life belief that anyone that is that loud and that obnoxious is hiding something, that rather than argue facts and reality it is better to beat down and insult anyone who disagrees.

As we have dove into the whole issue of manmade global warming, or its new rebranded title of climate change, we found that Al Gore and people like him were guilty of a number of things:

  • Ignoring science and realities that did not support their opinions and positions.
  • Rather than have an adult conversation about climate, these types of advocates like Gore sank to the level of insulting those who dared look at ALL science by calling them a variety of names including racists, homophobes, terrorists, flat earth believers, and other slanderous names.
  • Continuing to insist that politicians step up their intrusions into our lives with higher taxes, more regulations, and more control of our freedoms and standards of living based on a shaky theory at best.
To see the past posts and the multitude of evidence that we have compiled that showed it is perfectly okay to be a global warming doubter and a believer in science, enter the phrase "global warming doubter” in the search box above or go through the monthly historical posts listed on the right side of this page.

Thus, let’s see the latest facts and science that prove you can be a global warming doubter and a believer in science, regardless of what Al Gore proclaims.

1) Let’s put two facts on the table to start off today’s discussion. First, about a week ago the United States was in a semi-prolonged deep freeze due to a blast of Arctic air that was described as a “bomb cyclone.” There were absurdly low temperatures across much of the united States. Second, whenever something contrary to the global warming advocates occur you can be sure that the premier global warming advocate, Al Gore, is going to show up.

Which was the case after the frigid temperatures finally let up a little bit. Recall that Al Gore once said that there was an excellent chance that the entire North Pole ice cap could melt within five years. He made that statement in 2009. Obviously, he could not have been more wrong in that forecast, much like every single global warming forecaster and prediction has been so wrong since the beginning of time.

In order to protect his reputation, Gore tried to spin, really contort, the frigid temperatures to make himself not look foolish, citing global warming advocate scientist Michael Mann’s view of the bomb cyclone: “It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis.”

Wow! Global warming causes really cold weather, who knew?! Well, in reality, no one knew. Historically, no global warming scientist ever predicted that man made global warming would cause historically cold weather, not even close. Gore predicted the ice caps could be gone by now. Others predicted that coastal cities would be underwater because of global warming. You cannot claim you have credibility in any endeavor when your predictions of the future are all wrong by wide margins.

And as we have always accused Gore and those like him of doing, he cites one source that happens to agree with his spin and contortions while ignoring others in the scientific community might just have a more reasoned, unbiased, and scientific approach to the world, i.e. they use real data:

  • Ed Feulner, writing for the Heritage Foundation website on January 10, 2018, actually went to the effort of asking other scientists not named Michael Mann what was going on weather wise.
  • Mr. Feulner pointed out the reality that while Gore had predicted that there was an excellent chance the North Pole ice cap would have melted by four years ago, in reality, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, North Pole “ice growth during November 2017 averaged 30,900 square miles a day.” 
  • Consider what Kevin Trenberth a scientist at the National Center For Atmospheric Research had to say about this topic: “Winter storms are a manifestation of winter, not climate change. The Arctic is greatly affected by climate change, and it has a feedback effect—but not in winter.”
  • Consider what University of Washington scientist Cliff Mass had to say: “The frequency of cold waves have decreased during the past 50 years, not increased. That alone shows that such claims are baseless.”
  • Mass went on to point out that people like Gore and Mann are not only always wrong in their climate and global warming predictions but they cause much more harm to basic scientific research and principles: “It is very disappointing that members of my profession are making such obviously bogus claims. It hurts the science, it hurts the credibility of climate scientists, and weakens our ability to be taken seriously by society.”
  • And let’s not think that the term “bomb cyclone” is a new term that was invented to describe this frigid weather in the context of climate change. In fact, it was coined over 40 years by Fred Sanders of MIT who studied such storms long before Al Gore and and bunch of others became global warming advocates.
  • And according to the article, this latest bomb cyclone is not a one time deal due to global warming/climate change since there are 50 to 60 so-called bomb cyclones every year but most of them occur too far out in the oceans to have any impact on us and they have been going on for a very long time.
Maybe mankind’s actions are screwing up the climate. Maybe Al Gore is right. But when you are wrong, as he and other of his ilk have been so many times, at some point you have to step up and say maybe we need to look at ALL of the science, ALL of the research, ALL of the data and not continue to do what the Al Gores of the world do, looking at only the science, research, and data that support what has been in increasingly shaky premise from the start.

2) One could expect Al Gore not to be too good at science, always ignoring scientific research that does not agree with his viewpoints even though his climate viewpoints and forecasts have ALWAYS been proven wrong. Gore is a politician, he is not a scientist by training so one could make the case he does not understand the scientific method of research and analysis.

But a publication like Scientific American should not fall into that same category as a non-scientist like Al Gore. One would hope that Scientific American would respect the scientific method of research and not fall victim to global warming/climate change hysteria.

Which is not the case since in light of the freedom protests and riots in Iran, Scientific American actually tweeted out that. “Climate change may have helped spark Iran’s protests.” Say what? I thought that high unemployment, high inflation, a repressive government regime, a corrupt ruling class, lack of basic human freedoms, suppression of women’s rights, etc. caused the riots in Iran. How wrong was I [sarcasm]?

Seriously, are you kidding me? Climate change causes people to riot? I would have expected a more reasoned, logical, and scientifically proven connection to be done by an institution like Scientific American. But no, like other wild global warming advocates, anything can be connected to global warming no matter how ridiculous the connection might be.

Fortunately, Twitter responses to this idiocy was swift, reasoned and often hilarious:

  • Terry Kern: “LMAO, are you really going there?
  • Dick Warlock: “Unabashedly idiotic. This is what our credible scientific reads have come to. Take your cult and get ratioed with it.”
  • Casaubon: “This is absolutely ridiculous.”
  • Jeremy Martin: “This is not a good example of correlation, much less causation. This argument simply isn't good.”
  • Caleb Howe: “lol.”
  • Reluctant Exister: “Factcheck: lol”
  • brent mohrman: “lol. I stubbed my toe yesterday on my dresser. Pretty sure that was the fault of climate change too, eh?”
  • Moinsd: “AHAHAHHA! That's good, you guys are competing with The Onion, right? :-D That's really good.”
  • neontaster: “Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.”
  • John Doiron: “Yeah, I'm guessing it's more government corruption, oppression, and a bad economy, but you go with that.”
  • And finally, Mujahed Kobbe (edited for taste): “Get the f*&# out of here with this sh%$.”
Pretty sad that even a once respected science journal would subjugate itself to the pseudo science of correlating every occurrence in the world to the global warming/climate change mythology. Never in the history of mankind has science been so perverted and so biased in investigating truth, where contrary opinions and research is ignored to fulfill personal and political aims. More to follow in the coming days, proving once again that is perfectly sane to be a global warming doubter and a believer in science.
