Climate Depot Responds: 'Blizzard blamed on global warming?! Is there any weather event that is inconsistent with global warming? — This is now akin to the predictions of Nostradamus or the Mayan calendar. There is no way anyone can falsify the global warming theory now because any weather event that happens proves’ their case.'
AP's Seth Borenstein walks media claims back: 'The story also reported that 2014 was the hottest year on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA, but did not include the caveat that other recent years had average temperatures that were almost as high — and they all fall within a margin of error that lessens the certainty that any one of the years was the hottest.'
Climate Depot Note: AP is finally conceding that the narrative of the 2014 being the 'hottest year' not only violated scientific methods, but also made a mockery of journalistic ethics. Climate Depot kept up the pressure on the media.
Dr. Richard Lindzen: 'As with any cult, once the mythology of the cult begins falling apart, instead of saying, oh, we were wrong, they get more and more fanatical,' he said. 'You've led an unpleasant life, you haven't led a very virtuous life, but now you're told, you get absolution if you watch your carbon footprint. It's salvation.'
'I think that the latest IPCC report has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence,' Dr Lindzen told Climate Depot – a site known for questioning the theory of global warming.
Scientists Question Honesty of Federal Agencies & NASA’s Chief Global Warming Scientist Gavin Schmidt
Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer: ‘Why You are Being Misled on Global Temperatures’ – ‘I am embarrassed by the scientific community’s behavior on the subject’
Former Harvard Physicist Dr. Lubos Motl: ‘NASA's Gavin Schmidt knew about this fact. That didn't prevent them from pushing virtually all mainstream media to publish the lie – in the very title – that NASA was declaring 2014 was the warmest year'
Climatologist Dr. Tim Ball accuses NASA’s Schmidt of 'climate deception.’ - 'Schmidt knows, after all his years with participating in the creation and naming of the RealClimate.org web site, that it is all about the headline.'
'Kids are not going to be taught anything resembling scientific balance,' Morano argues. 'They're not going to be allowed any kind of scientific dissent. They're not even going to be told that there is a scientific dissent.'
Marc Morano, the executive editor of ClimateDepot.com and a vocal climate-change skeptic, traveled from Virginia to attend the recent board hearing and argue on behalf of keeping the altered standards.
“The West Virginia board of education was being intimidated and bullied by educators who wanted to enforce conformity,” he said in an interview. “It’s the kids who are going to suffer. They’re going to be told there’s no debate, there’s no dissent.”
