Katherine Hayhoe To Sell Snake Oil At Texas Tech This Saturday

Katherine Hayhoe is going to tell students at Texas Tech this Saturday that she knows how to control the climate.

The Citizens’ Climate Lobby and the Texas Tech Student Government Association are co-sponsoring a two-part event called “Realities of a Changing Climate: Solutions for a Brighter Future” on Saturday from 1-3:30 p.m. in room 169 of the Human Sciences Building at Tech.  Katharine Hayhoe will speak on what is happening and why it’s a problem during the first hour of the event. Hayhoe is also a member of the advisory board of the national Citizens’ Climate Education.

Katherine expresses her personal opinion as plural, and says that droughts in the central and southwest US are going to get worse.


 Drought – Years Of Living Dangerously

She can be concerned about anything she wants. But the data shows that she doesn’t know what she is talking about. Droughts in the corn belt have become much less common and much less intense over the past 120 years.

However, during the Little Ice Age, sand dunes covered the Great Plains, and California mountain lakes dried up completely.

Drought in the Southwest is caused by cold Pacific water, not warm water. When the Pacific warms up (like 2015) Texas and the southwest get very wet.


Texas is expecting floods this weekend, as Katherine Hayhoe pollutes children’s minds with her snake oil pitch about drought.

    Of course she uses the magic word “may” whenever she projects-predicts-warns-panics.

    All you need to know…

    She is an “Associate Professor in the department of POLITICAL science.” [Emphasis added]

      Political Science!! really?!

      • darrylb says:

        We have to be careful and honest here, she is in the political science department, but she has a PhD in Atmospheric Science.
        I have here book, only for the purpose of analyzing what she says. As usual, items start with accuracy and then get embellished with skewed info.

        As a retired Chem/Physics instructor the new science of absolutes, which takes hypothesis which can’t be proven, skips theory and lands on flawed settled science immersed in emotion is antithetical to scientific procedure as I was taught.

    • DD More says:

      Crash, Political Science – so she is probably schooled in Psychological operations (psych-ops or psy-ops)

      Create effective propaganda that changes attitudes This is achieved if people identify with a new or changed mission. Propaganda is used to extend this identification to increase popular support for a mission and provide points of convergence for transformative action.

      The Institute for Propaganda Analysis (IPA) was created in 1937 to alert the public to political propaganda. The IPA identified seven basic propaganda tricks: Name-Calling, Glittering Generalities, Transfers, Testimonials, Plain Folks, Card Stacking, and Band Wagon. According to Combs and Nimmo (1993), “these seven devices have been repeated so frequently in lectures, articles and textbooks ever since that they have become … synonymous with the practice and analysis of propaganda.”

      Propaganda Teams
      Form Propaganda Teams by selecting and training persuasive, motivated people, who move within an organization and encourage people to support the organizational mission. Trained Propaganda Teams can provide a multi-stage persuasion program that integrates strategic planning with organizational attitudes. Propaganda Teams can also provide feedback about rumors and attitude changes. This role is fulfilled by secret police in authoritarian societies.

      Psych-ops operations have maximum effect with people who:
      – have little education
      – accept information uncritically
      – benefit from the proposed change
      – want to believe the propaganda
      – do not wish to understand their own motivations

      Hey all you TT Red Raiders check them off and tell us how many check marks to you have?

    I have been in contact with Jen Marohasy in Australia.
    For the first time, politicians there listened to both sides of an argument.

    She and Robert Carter presented observed facts, the alarmists presented computer generated and homogenized figures which they were forced to acknowledge. Score one for honesty.
    and score for one for putting a nick in the alarmist armor.

    I would suggest that much of will be presented in Texas, is manipulated extrapolations, which always have skewed assumptions and infills as desired.

    I would like to be there, but I am sure I would be seen as an undesirable.

    To help conclude the AGW debate, respond to the ResearchGate survey, “Is there convincing evidence of AGW?”


  5. Andy DC says:

    There was a time when mainstream science would run away for that type of crackpot. Now mainstream science, totally corrupted by Government funding, embraces crackpots.

  6. Robertv says:

    Certainly not when the rain is for all the world to see.

      As an aside, it’s always incredible the level of control those drivers have in the wet conditions, as the cars dance around.
