February, 2017, I Am A Global Warming Doubter and A Believer In Science: More Bad Forecasts, Lying at The EPA and a Lost Doubter Warrior

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) An article on the WND website by Bob Unruh on January 3, 2017 contain two charts that showed the current ice volume at the North Pole and how that volume changed every month over time:


Two realities kind of jump out at you from these charts: 
  1. There is still a lot of ice at the North Pole. 
  2. And that total volume of ice, while it changes seasonally throughout the year, has been basically unchanged since 2004, 13 years ago. 
So it is still cold, it is still icy, it is still nasty up north. But over the years, what have the global warming advocates predicted would happen up north: 
  • Al Gore predicted in 2009 that “the entire north polar ice cap during some of the summer months could be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years.” That did not happen. 
  • In Gore’s 2006 documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” he predicted increasing temperatures would cause earth’s oceans to rise by 20 feet. It did not happen. 
  • Mark Hertsgaard predicted in 2013 in an article, “The End of the Arctic? Ocean Could be Ice Free by 2015,” the same thing. It did not happen. 
  • The BBC predicted that the Arctic summers would be ice free by 2013. It did not happen. 
  • The Sierra Club Canada was even more dramatic, and even more wrong, when on 2013 they predicted that the Arctic would be ice free in….2013. It did not happen. 
The bottom line on both these predictions and the hundreds or thousands of other predictions put forth by global warming advocates and “experts” is that they have all been wrong and wrong dramatically. So why should global warming doubters like myself believe any predictions of gloom and doom when all previous predictions of gloom and doom have been pathetically off base? Shouldn’t the effort be on finding out why global warming, and now climate change, forecasts never pan out the way their advocates say rather continuing to disparage and slander those that simply point out, hey, you are always wrong so why should we believe you now?

2) The Conservative Daily Post reporting in late December that the EPA’s highest ranking and leading expert on “climate change,” John C. Beale was sentenced to 32 months in Federal prison. His crime: he was caught lying to his EPA bosses that while employed by the EPA he was also working for the CIA as a spy in Pakistan, which was a totally false reality. Apparently, he pulled off this scam for 15 years, making him what I would call a professional liar.

Now, obviously you cannot condemn an entire set of people who are global warming advocates for one of their own that lies about where he was and what he was doing for 15 years. But if the EPA is so inept at understanding this preposterous lie, makes you wonder what other preposterous lies it also does not understand.

3) Judith Curry has been a long time global warming doubter as a fully tenured professor at the Georgia Tech University. She has taken on any number of famous global warming advocates and taken them apart with solid scientific research and reasoning. 

Unfortunately, according to a recent article on the MRCTV website by Sam Dorman on January 5, 2017, she is leaving the world of academia and entering the private business world due to what she sees is the total scientific failing of those involved with global warming: 
  • She is quoted as saying that the private sector “seems like a more ‘honest’ place for a scientist working in a politicized field than universities or government labs.” 
  • Curry resigned her tenured position as of Jan. 1, with “no intention of seeking another academic” position in a university or government agency, writing on her blog that she felt “growing disenchantment with universities, the academic field of climate science and scientists.” 
  • In what she called a “politicized academic establishment” for climate science, there are very limited ways for students to receive funding, get papers published and obtain prestigious positions if they dare to doubt global warming/climate change dogma.
  • In her view, this bastardization of science forces students into a conflict between maintaining their scientific integrity and “career suicide” and as a result she has advised students to avoid the “craziness” of climate science. 
  • Curry has also been a critic of political attempts to prevent climate change, reasoning that even if the global warming advocates are correct, policies put forth by people like Obama are unlikely to make any difference. 
  • In a recent Fox News interview, Msl Curry told host Tucker Carlson that she was sick and tired of politicization of global warming in academia: “I’ve been vilified by some of my colleagues who are activists and don’t like anybody challenging their big story. I walk around with knives sticking out of my back. In the university environment I felt like I was just beating my head against the wall.” 
  • In her blog, she continued her critique of the climate science field: “A deciding factor was that I no longer know what to say to students and postdocs regarding how to navigate the CRAZINESS in the field of climate science. Research and other professional activities are professionally rewarded only if they are channeled in certain directions approved by a politicized academic establishment — funding, ease of getting your papers published, getting hired in prestigious positions, appointments to prestigious committees and boards, professional recognition, etc. How young scientists are to navigate all this is beyond me, and it often becomes a battle of scientific integrity versus career suicide.” 
Curry went on in her blog to plead for what we have been asking for over the past few years: an adult discussion of all of the data, all of the research, all of the science to determine what is actually going on. This is opposed to the current reality where global warming advocates only look at the data and “science” that supports their views, views that liberal universities and politicians are more than filling to fund and support for their own selfish purposes. An honest discussion, nothing more. Unfortunately, an advocate for the scientific method and truth and honest in research is leaving the battle.

That will do it for this update to the theme, "I am a global warming doubter and a believer in science.” A true scientist gets frustrated right out of her career, lying at the EPA, and false predictions of Arctic doom do not happen. More next month.
