Climate Expert: 'Global Warming is Far from 'Settled Science'..."
There seems to me more and more of these articles where a climate scientist questions "global warming" and if it was even a thing in the first place (see 300 Scientists Blast NOAA For Fudging ‘Climate Change’ Data… and Obama Supporter and Nobel-Winning Physicist Attacks Obama on Climate Change). They're some of our favorite articles. We make no bones about that.
Add former NASA scientist Dr. Roy Spencer to the list of people who say the science is far from "settled"...
“Uncertainties in the adjustments to our global temperature datasets, the small amount of warming those datasets have measured compared to what climate models expect, and uncertainties over the possible role of Mother Nature in recent warming, all combine to make climate change beliefs as much faith-based as science-based,” Spencer wrote in a report published by the conservative Texas Public Policy Foundation.
“Until climate science is funded independent of desired energy policy outcomes, we can continue to expect climate research results to be heavily biased in the direction of catastrophic outcomes,” Spencer wrote.
So, if I'm following what Spencer is saying, and I believe that I am, he's saying that most climate science is funded by people who want to use it to push leftist policy, which would explain why leftists now want to outlaw dissent over global warming. Do I have that right?
Here's an even simpler translation: follow the money. Because yes, global climate change warming is an operation. With Grand Canyon sized coffers full of cash. Nothing sells better than doom and gloom. Well, nothing sells better than doom and gloom with bewbs. But if you can't get bewbage, one must sell global catastrophe in the form of rising seas, boiling temperatures, and poor stranded polar bears. Who, as facts would have it, are thriving. But shhhhh, don't tell Al Gore, he's probably not having the best day.
You know who else isn't having the best day? People who live in tragically poor countries, which aren't allowed to develop because of "global warming" concerns. Like using natural resources for energy. Coil, oil, a thousand farts of a heard of wildebeests. Whatever, the global warming hysteria squad is preventing those countries from getting their burn on.
Meanwhile, in America, a bunch of ninnies are driving Nissan Leafs to Whole Foods for "organic" food, using their probably-made-in-a-Korean-sweatshop canvas bag, thinking they're "saving the planet." While many are peeing their birth-control hormone-laden urine into the groundwater. I'll give you three guesses as to how I feel about these sorts of people. Three.
Go green, everyone! As in "go green-funding!"
