Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer: 'I am not surprised this happened at all. For the last 25 years our science has been viewed as standing in the way of efforts to institute a carbon tax or otherwise reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The amount of money involved in such changes in energy policy easily run into the hundreds of billions of dollars… more likely trillions. When I was at NASA, my boss was personally told by Al Gore that Gore blamed our satellite temperature dataset for the failure of carbon tax legislation to pass. So why am I not surprised that our building was shot up? Because people have been killed for much less reason than hundreds of billions of dollars. This is why the FBI needs to get involved in this case, if they haven’t already. Ecoterrorism is a federal crime.
Nationally prominent climate change skeptic Dr. John Christy believes his office floor at the University of Alabama in Huntsville was "targeted" by gunshots over the national March for Science weekend. "To me, it looks like the fourth floor was targeted," Christy said Tuesday. The pattern of the damage "does raise the possibility it was a little more than a coincidence," he said.
