From the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Environment & Public Works website:
Retired senior NASA atmospheric scientist Dr. John S. Theon, the former supervisor of James Hansen, NASA’s vocal man-made global warming fears soothsayer, has now publicly declared himself a skeptic and declared that Hansen “embarrassed NASA” with his alarming climate claims…
Theon declared “climate models are useless.” “My own belief concerning anthropogenic climate change is that the models do not realistically simulate the climate system because there are many very important sub-grid scale processes that the models either replicate poorly or completely omit,” Theon explained. “Furthermore, some scientists have manipulated the observed data to justify their model results. In doing so, they neither explain what they have modified in the observations, nor explain how they did it. They have resisted making their work transparent so that it can be replicated independently by other scientists. This is clearly contrary to how science should be done. Thus there is no rational justification for using climate model forecasts to determine public policy,” he added.
Eventually, people will start realizing that the scientific data (not the political propaganda) does not necessarily support anthropogenic global warming, or perhaps global warming at all. The article goes on to state,
Gore faces a much different scientific climate in 2009 than the one he faced in 2006 when his film An Inconvenient Truth was released. According to satellite data, the Earth has cooled since Gore’s film was released, Antarctic sea ice extent has grown to record levels, sea level rise has slowed, ocean temperatures have failed to warm, and more and more scientists have publicly declared their dissent from man-made climate fears as peer-reviewed studies continue to man-made counter warming fears.
Again, this calls into question the so-called objectivity of “science.” When scientists on the popular bandwagon go around saying, “hush, hush” to anyone who raises challenges to the status quo, pay attention.
“The debate IS CLOSED!”
That’s real open and honest, isn’t it Mike?
Liberals, leftists, eco-wackos, control freaks, people in the pocket of the “global warming” money making schemes (carbon offsets – ha!)
I GUILTY. I POD.
Denial, is it a river in Egypt, or something else?
The political issue is made so by the so-called skeptics in the pockets of the energy companies.
But, then, of course, there are better ways of “knowing” than mere materialist science, aren’t there?
Conservatives, creationists, deniers. Peas of a pod, if you ask me.
Right! Some of those lines on those active fronts are ..va va va voom!
I kind of like climate models. They’re better than those old ugly weather men we used to have.
If this global warming keeps up we will all freeze to death!
I forwarded yuor last post on this topic to my cousin and he blow a cork! He refused to read anymore after he got to the part that refuted global warming.
It is religion for many of these folks. They just won’t have any dissent.
