Former Delaware State Climatologist Dr. David Legates met with terror by warmist faculty that he was allowed to speak!
'I think it was unfortunate to bring in only one speaker and have it be such a minority view,' said Brian Fath, a professor in the department of biological sciences.
'Doctor Legates does not represent what the majority of the scientific community who study climate change thinks,' Joel Moore, an assistant professor in the department of geosciences, said.
Thompson said that she was met with pushback from Towson faculty when she announced that Legates would be coming to campus. Some of the immediate reaction she received was concern that there would be no rebuttal to what Legates was saying.
Both Fath and Moore said in interviews that they would have liked to see some sort of panel or rebuttal during the event. Moore suggested a panel that accurately represented the scientific community. “So maybe four or five people who study different aspects of climate change, and then Legates,” Moore said.
Some Towson faculty thought his message was potentially harmful because of the viewpoint it presented.
Fath said he thought that without “perspective and context” Legates’ message could potentially misinform students. Fath was not alone in his concern. Moore said that Legates’ message could be a “disservice” to students and members of the community who don’t have a strong background in and an understanding of Earth’s climate.
PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel is often considered one of the most influential people in Silicon Valley: 'Whenever you can’t have a debate, I often think that’s evidence that there’s a problem. When people use the word ‘science,’ it’s often a tell, like in poker, that you’re bluffing.'
Thiel said no one will be upset if you ask questions about the periodic table, because it is actually science. But referring to man-made climate change as “science” tells you “that people are exaggerating and they’re bluffing a little bit,” Thiel said.
Greenpeace Co-Founder Patrick Moore in rare 30 min. debate: 'Carbon dioxide is actually lower now than it has been through the entire history of modern life.
'We are in a very cold period of the Earth's history. But The big lie -- and the really important fact-- is to call carbon dioxide a pollutant. And to teach our children this is heresy. CO2 is the most important nutrient food for all life on earth. we are carbon based life. Plants would rather have CO2 three to four times higher than it is today.'
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.'
