…and many Australians wonder just what the hell they ARE paying drought doomsayer turned discredited climate commissioner Tim Flannery for…at Andrew Bolt’s blog, he writes about some of the BS that have come from warmists who said a few years back that Australia would not see rain like this again, but they won’t admit it now. I don’t usually repost articles in entirety, but Mr. Bolt uses WUWT material regularly, so I don’t think he’ll mind and this needs to be seen. These scientists are shameless.
The world’s most brilliant climate scientists tell us that the extensive snow of the 1970s was due to global cooling, and the current extensive snow is due to global warming.
Anthony J. Sadar provides a review of "The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars" in The Washington Times. He writes:
Throughout “The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars,” there is the continuous resorting to childish, unprofessional name-calling. Mr. Mann seems to relish the phrase “climate change denier.” On one page alone (Page 193), he uses the silly phrase or some variant of it seven times. The phrase is obviously absurd because no one denies that climate changes.
Such childishness is related to a limited perspective and belies a narrow progressive political tactic to smear anyone who dares to challenge established orthodoxy. Mr. Mann relies substantially on progressive sources such as Media Transparency, Government Accountability Project, Sourcewatch.org, DeSmogBlog.com, Union of Concerned Scientists, American Prospect, Center for American Progress, and, without irony, Think Progress. More of these sources too numerous to mention are referenced.
The book’s unintentionally arrogant tone, all too typical of progressive academia, is perhaps a hint of what, unfortunately, irritates Americans. And maybe that’s why the current climate science officialdom is seeing such great resistance from mere mortals. To the rescue, though, Mr. Mann announces the deployment of the Climate Science Rapid Response Team (aka “truth squad”), to quickly quash any threat to the institutional ideology from, say, practicing atmospheric scientists in the real world.
