Scientist declares Sen. Whitehouse is ‘a complete moron, scientifically’ – Whitehouse ‘believes in the mythology initiated by Al Gore’

A prominent scientist is pushing back on Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (RI) for his lecture on the Senate floor that anyone skeptical of man-made global warming is guilty of “grave sin” and “listening to evil voices.” See: Sen. Whitehouse: ‘Climate deniers’ guilty of ‘grave sin’ & ‘LISTENING TO EVIL VOICES’ – Instead ‘listen to the oceans’

“I am really getting sick and tired of this blowhard Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) lecturing us for being sinners,” Dr. Thomas P. Sheahen, an MIT educated physicist and author of the book “An Introduction to High-Temperature Superconductivity,” told Climate Depot. Sheahen is the writer of the popular newspaper column “Ask the Everyday Scientist.” Sheahen is featured in the new book, ‘The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change’ by Marc Morano.  – Order Your Book Copy Now! ‘The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change’ By Marc Morano – Available at Amazon & Barnes & Noble

“Senator Whitehouse is a complete moron, scientifically.  He doesn’t know any real science at all.  He believes in the mythology initiated a generation ago by Al Gore,  where CO2 emitted by mankind is entirely to blame,” Sheahen explained.

Sheahen continued: “Here’s the reality:   There is no such thing as a ‘climate denier.’ That category doesn’t exist.  There are certain facts that we all agree on:  a)  the climate is always changing;  b) the globe is warming;  c) there is a finite human contribution  (e.g., the urban heat island effect).  Where disagreement begins is on the role of CO2 in heating the planet.  There is great scientific controversy about that point, because of factors such as how molecules absorb and re-radiate photons at various altitudes in the atmosphere, because of flow via convection of warm air from the surface to the upper atmosphere; and more.  It’s a really complicated field of science.”

Sheahen added: “Sheldon Whitehouse has no intention whatsoever to engage in any scientific debate at all.  Instead, he quotes the entirely false and manufactured statistic that “97% of scientists agree…” and goes from there to further faulty steps:

     1) he asserts that he knows the truth perfectly;

     2) he asserts that anybody who disagrees with him is a sinner.

      I say it’s high time that our religious leaders stepped forth and shouted “Stop!” to Senator Whitehouse and similar bloviators.”
Sheahen concluded: “No way is Whitehouse capable of defining some action as a ‘sin.’  His scientific acumen is so weak that he cannot even defend the position he holds but instead resorts to the ‘argument from authority’ to brush off any scientific disagreement.”

Sen. Whitehouse: ‘Climate deniers’ guilty of ‘grave sin’ & ‘LISTENING TO EVIL VOICES’ – Instead ‘listen to the oceans’ – Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said in a speech on the Senate floor on Tuesday that those who stand in the way of regulations meant to control “climate change” are guilty of three grave “sins.” “It is an evil mess we are in, and if there is any justice in this world, there will one day be a terrible price to pay if we keep listening to evil voices,” Whitehouse said. Before he arrived at his point about the grave sins committed by opponents of climate change regulations, he urged Americans to “listen to the oceans” and “the oysters.”…
