New Warmist film: 'But the star of this show is the astonishingly charming rogue Marc Morano, a frequent cable-television guest who admits,' I’m not a scientist, but I do play one on TV.' Morano, the founder of ClimateDepot.com, not only spouts his nefarious nonsense about science everywhere he goes but is also in the business of ensuring the mau-mauing of genuine scientific researchers who have felt a responsibility to go public with the dangers we face. “We went after James Hansen and Michael Oppenheimer and had a lot of fun with it…we mocked and ridiculed,” Morano brags.'
Geologists Dr. Nick Eyles and Dr. Andrew Miall are professors in the Department of Geology at the University of Toronto: 'Promises of a more ‘stable future’ if we can only prevent climate change are hopelessly misguided and raise unnatural expectations by being willfully ignorant of the natural workings of the planet.
'The past climate record suggests in fact that for much of the Earth’s surface future cooling is the norm.'
'It is self-evident to us that the public debate concerning environmental change largely lacks an understanding of natural variability. Since the last Ice Age ended, some 12,000 years ago, Earth has been through several periods lasting hundreds of years and possibly longer when it was either warmer or colder than at present.'
'The ongoing discussion of climate change -- in some circles -- assumes that any change since 1940 is largely man-made. This opinion is uninformed by geologic science.'
'Much of our science is what we would call ‘crisis-driven’ where funding, politics and the media are all intertwined and inseparable generating a corrupting and highly corrosive influence on the scientific method and its students. If it doesn’t bleed it doesn’t lead is the new yardstick with which to measure the overall significance of research.'
D'Aleo: 'Thousands of papers listed supporting global warming is no surprise given the $165B given to universities and researchers (Universities, NOAA, NASA, national labs) to produce papers focusing on what would happen IF the climate models were right. Even with that, there were1350 peer review papers questioning global warming and1000 papers believing cooling has begun. Scientists are aware of the failures too and now have proposed 54 excuses as to why their models have failed.'
