How do you stop an out-of-control Toyota from killing you? Shift into neutral or turn off the car…. Duh!

Seriously, I find this video advise troubling on a few different levels. Read more »

Climate Science Defense = Ad Hom Central

Jeff Id is taking notes.

This has really ticked me off! It’s everyone else’s  fault that your science is so screwed up!

When you can’t defend you actions, attack your enemies. When you can’t defend your scientific practices, attack your enemies. And of course, the pathetic lazy main stream media is all too happy to follow along. Note that in this article, they imply Steve McIntyre, the guy in the picture,  is one of the Exxon Six!  (OK, I made up the name, but it sounds cool), yet never connect him to anything.  He, in fact, is quite independent and does his own research. He doesn’t take talking points from anyone!   You know, the libel laws are much different in England than they are in the states.  Steve McIntyre could, under their rules, probably sue the paper for this.

Do you wonder why your media is dying! Idiots!

PS: Where the HELL is my Exxon money!!!

The battle for the soul of the Conservative movement is on!!!  I have no idea which one I want to lose more: each has some good points… but most often, both are idiots!!!!! Man, do I have to pick sides?????

Twenty to one says Rush will not be able to stay out of this one.

Climate Science – The Fix Is In… UPDATE.

Share Button

…And has been for a very long time. Here are a couple of current examples, one from Rodger Pielke, and the other from Steve McIntyre. Note that Pielke’s work on land use and its effect on climate is peer reviewed, yet, for some reason, it just doesn’t count when talking about climate change. When you so obviously stack the deck in your favor, it is no wonder you get a consensus.

PS. Note to Ed Barnes and Fox News; fact checking can be your friend. Rodger Pielke resigned from the CCSP, and not the IPCC (though other scientists have for the same reasons), and how can Tom Karl be “appointed to oversee the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Climatic Data Center, an ambitious new office that will collect climate change data and disseminate it to businesses and communities.”, and also have  “played a pivotal role in key climate decisions over the past decade, has kept a low profile as director of National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) since 1998,…”.

When someone of my lack of fact-checking skills feels the need to lecture another, you know something is wrong.

UPDATE: This next bit demonstrates just how much the process is stilted against the skeptics. The UK Parliament is supposedly conducting an “Independent Review” of the issues involved in Climategate and are conducting an oral interview of witnesses to gain clarity. Here is the first goal of this inquisition:

1. Examine the hacked e-mail exchanges, other relevant e-mail exchanges and any other information held at CRU to determine whether there is any evidence of the manipulation or suppression of data which is at odds with acceptable scientific practice and may therefore call into question any of the research outcomes.

It’s telling that Steve McIntyre, the guy who is subject of so many of the e-mails, the guy who runs the blog Climate Audit and has, more than any other in the last six years, been “pointing out the evidence of the manipulation or suppression of data which is at odds with acceptable scientific practice”, has not been interviewed by this committee and is not invited to this session.

There is a term for this.

Whitewash.
