Corruption of Climate Science Has Created 30 Lost Years

dunce-instructingBy Dr. Tim Ball

Traditionally, the older scientists held to the prevailing wisdom and were challenged by the new, skeptical graduates looking for wider answers. In climatology, the opposite has happened. The so-called skeptics challenging the prevailing wisdom are the professors who have researched and taught the subject for 30 years or longer. Their knowledge is much wider than that of the new young scientists because climate science has stagnated for thirty years. All the funding was directed to only one side of climate science, and that was the side promoted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and accepted as the ‘official science’ by governments.

It’s now frightening how little climate science is known by both sides of the debate on human causation of global warming. I wrote this sentence before I saw a paper from Michigan State University that found,

Most college students in the United States do not grasp the scientific basis of the carbon cycle – an essential skill in understanding the causes and consequences of climate change.

The professor says students need to know because they must deal with the buildup of CO2 causing climate change. This discloses his ignorance about the science of the carbon cycle and the role of CO2 in climate. It’s not surprising, and caused by three major factors:

  1. a function of the emotional, irrational, religious approach to environmentalism;
  2. the takeover of climate science for a political agenda; and
  3. funding directed to prove the political, rather than the scientific, agenda.

The dogmatism of politics and religion combined to suppress openness of ideas and the advance of knowledge critical to science.

    I have never seen a person duck a simple question as often as you. Your thoughts on Soros is all that is asked. Answer a direct question.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Answered…. or maybe you should just tell me, and everyone else here, what you want me to say… BTW for every Soros there are at least 15 ultra wealthy Rightys doing the same thing for their side. And you could include with them the US government and its vast resources (right-wing propaganda, well funded think tanks, defense/war, spying/intelligence, etc. etc.) So your point, whatever it may be, is lacking, to say the least. But please, continue this inane pissing contest, and beat the dead horse some more. Really amusing.

  • paul wenum

    The “horse” isn’t dead until you answer the question. I assume from your lack of an answer that you back Soros and that shows your true worth. Enough said.

  • Rob N. Hood

    I back someone like Soros more than his more fascist brethren, yep, if I had to choose, which you have apparently forced me to do, for some strange reason to continue this silly juvenile game of yours. Your own right-wing heros speak volumes about you and yours. So there, right back where we started… happy now? (no, you won’t be)

  • paul wenum

    Finally an answer! Explain why he is so beneficial over the alleged right? I found an opening. Tell us. We are definitely interested in the comparisons.

  • Rob N. Hood

    For all the reasons and examples of which I have posted now for over a year. Boring and inane question….

  • paul wenum

    You have never posted about Soros in the positive or negative and seem to not know who he is Have always wonderer why. Believe we now know the answer. Understand that journalists go to his schooling in manipulating the media. Nice guy, I quess? Or is he? You tell me. All research wonder one.

  • Rob N. Hood

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • paul wenum

    Typical liberal response. Yawn and sleep and ignore direct questions. It will never change.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Yep, I’ve done that for over a year now (not) consistently (not) and avoided all your questions (not). If all you have are inanities to offer, why not save yourself the trouble? I will be off here very soon for good, then you can spew your illogic and irrational comments to no one in particular.

  • paul wenum

    Your option. Nobody is forcing you. Remember, we live in a republic.

  • paul wenum

    I sense that you are leaving after 2012 election? Your leader will be extremely angry.

  • Rob N. Hood

    I don’t have a leader. Who’s yours?

  • paul wenum

    God.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Of course. And W’s punt on who his favorite philosopher was- Jesus. You people are rigidly predictable and unoriginal. It isn’t like you implied that my leader is someone mortal and political, and Liberal, right? Etc, etc, etc. You have no idea how irrational and hypocritical you are.

    The real problem I have with that is the Right consistently professes to be religious and guided by it, thus placing themselves on a pedestal and higher moral position than others. The problem with that of course is that it’s 9 out of 10 times hypocritical and doesn’t reflect accurately their day to day actions or true beliefs. I know yor response is that YOU REALLY ARE THAT HOLY/NOBLE ETC. I know you believe that… and that is just another aspect of your hypocrisy.

  • paul wenum

    ” I know you believe that” Yes, Jesus, God is my leader. You have a problem with that?

  • Rob N. Hood

    That’s not what I said. Learn to read.

  • paul wenum

    My close domocrat friends that I hunt and fish with are extremely religious and God is their leader as well. Do they have a problem? Or is it you that thinks conservatives only believe in Christ and have a “moral” problem? Man, you definitely have a problem.

  • Rob N. Hood

    That’s not what I said or even implied. You definitley have a problem- with comprehension.

  • paul wenum

    Really? So be it. Will never change.

  • Rob N. Hood

    ummm…. ok….. I guess.

  • paul wenum

    You quessed correctly.

  • Michael

    he’s a profess or teacher education, what do you want?

    If those who can’t think, teach, what does that make those who merely teach others to teach?

    • Rob N. Hood

      Wow Michael, dude, that was seriously weird and impossible to understand fully.

  • Rob N. Hood

    I don’t even know what you were trying to say… thus the slight sarcasm. Nevermind.

  • paul wenum

    Keeping sarcasm out of any conversation makes things easier to have a normal discussion/disagreement.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Sorry, I forgot you are perfect.

  • paul wenum

    I quess in your mind I am. Thanks for the compliment? Alinsky is smiling.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Was that sarcasm??!! Gosh I thought you disliked sarcasm due to mature and sincere reasons….

  • paul wenum

    I Like all types of good discourse. Deal with the lowest of the low all day “face to face” and this is a non factor. I don’t sweat small stuff I cannot control.

  • Rob N. Hood

    As usual you only make sense to yourself.

  • paul wenum

    Another hard left wing response. I actually expected more. Having a bad day at the socialist office?

  • Rob N. Hood

    “hard left” response…? Really? How about an average normal, even mundane response? Another knee-jerk reaction brought to us by the hard rightwing.

  • paul wenum

    Waiting for one. You have yet to give me one.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Keep waiting.

  • paul wenum

    I will. Will you?

  • Rob N. Hood

    No

  • paul wenum

    Tell Soros hello.

  • Rob N. Hood

    I will after you give Glenn Beck a hug and kiss.

  • Joe

    Who’s Glenn Beck?

  • Rob N. Hood

    Ask Paul.

  • Joe

    I don’t like cry babies. Still waiting for an adult answer. You up to it?, or should we wait for a fifth grader’s response?

  • Rob N. Hood

    Glenn Beck cries a lot…

  • Joe

    Yes I guess he does. Can you answer a question or do I have to get you a crying towel?

  • Rob N. Hood

    I would make another attempt at this inane exercise if you were at all original, or even cordial. But alas Joe you are not. You guys love a band-wagon and your talking points.

  • Joe

    As stated, crying towels for people that never answer are available. Should actually sell/trademark etc. Left wing crying towels. Could retire. Suggest you entertain the idea. You could quit your 15 jobs and get off entitlements! Cool!
