Finally – A Proof For Global Warming

I am in the Alarmed camp, for the very good reason that I am a scientist (albeit not an atmospheric scientist) and hence I understand how that community works.

Global warming is real, because the scientists can’t be wrong.

    If scientists can’t be wrong… and they care about saving the planet, then…

    … shouldn’t they go to Washington?

    Since they aren’t doing that when so much good would come of it and so many lives enriched by their perfect decisions…

    Then, I, being a non-scientist, will remain in the “non-Alarmed” camp (wrt global warming).

    I remain alarmed that the “scientists” and politicians will make everything FUBAR.

  3. They think for me, therefore I ain’t.

  4. I am in the alarmed camp because L. Ron Hubbard sold me a volcano full of evil ghosts, and I understand how that community works.

    I’m in the skeptic camp even though I don’t know diddly squat about science.

    This old man, decayed one,
    He said feedback’s still to come
    What a sad sack, warmist hack,
    Reading bristle cones,
    This old man’s a useful drone.

    Shutting Down BBC Science Coverage That Doesn’t Show Consensus
    Aims to silence global warming skeptics
    1 Aug 11 – “BBC has fired the head of the Science news department, and will no longer print research that does not agree with global warming theory,” says reader Winona Campbell.

    “This has the backing of Paul Nurse of the Royal Society, Sir Mark Walport of Welcome Trust, and Alison Hastings of BBC Trust.

    “You have many readers from all over the world who need to know this.

    “This should be on iceagenow.com.”

    * * *

    Winona is absolutely correct: The world should know about this censorship.

    The BBC announcement was published under the rather innocuous title “BBC praised for science coverage,” so that you wouldn’t notice that it intends to limit dissenting opinions on global warming.

    An independent review has found that BBC science coverage is of “high quality and significant quantity,” the article gloats.

    “But the report, by genetics professor Steve Jones, said the BBC ‘must make a distinction between well-established fact and opinion’.

    “Attempts at balance were giving ‘free publicity to marginal opinions’, the BBC Trust-published report said.

    “It found that, where there was consensus on scientific matters, providing an opposite view without consideration of ‘due weight’ could lead to a ‘false balance’.

    Prof Jones went on to say that the BBC “still gives space” to global warming sceptics “to make statements that are not supported by the facts”.

    For years, said Jones, “the climate change deniers have been marginal to the scientific debate but somehow they continued to find a place on the airwaves”.

    “Equality of voice calls for a match of scientists, not with politicians or activists, but with those qualified to take a knowledgeable, albeit perhaps divergent view of research,” he said.

    In a rational world, this would be called censorship.

    Or propaganda.

    Or both.

    How about intimidation? If your predecessor just got fired for not toeing the party line, what would that do to your objectivity?

    Allowing only the “consensus” view would leave us still believing that the world is flat and that the sun revolves around the earth.

    Is the BBC not aware that almost all major gains in science have been made by those who broke with the consensus of the day?

      R.— While it is deplorable that the BBC would admit to and promote censorship, it isn’t anything we haven’t already been through. We all remember the days before the skeptic blogosphere took off.

      So, the BBC wants to try their hand at censorship again? Let them try. They will become even more irrelevant than what they already are. That boat sailed ten years ago. The genie is out of the bottle and there is nothing they can do to put it back.

    Well I’m a sceptic and a scientist. Sorry old man I have read the evidence, got out the spreadsheet and CAGW doesn’t fit the data.

    After 30 years in it I also understand the community, which begs to ask – has that guy had a bucket over his head for the last millenium? Science is riven with all the same power games as any other community of homo testosteronii.

  9. PearlandAggie says:

    I am an engineer and in the non-alarmed camp. I understand how shoddy data collection and overt statistical manipulation can shoot your overhyped argument in the foot because THAT is how the “climate science” community works (to convert neutral observers to skeptics).

  10. oeman50 says:

    OK, I fail to understand why understanding “how that community works” convinces a scientist of truth, myself being a non-alarmed engineer like Aggie.
