From the Cheap Seats: Debunking Global Warming

There are scientists and there are climate hacks. Guess which group Al Gore and Maggie Fox belong to.

There are scientists and there are climate hacks. Guess which group Al Gore and Maggie Fox belong to.

There are scientists and there are climate hacks. The latter include the likes of Al “Is it hot on here or is it just me?” Gore and the kiddies at the Climate Reality Project, CRaP, headed by Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall, aka Maggie Fox, both seemingly more motivated by money grubbing than, well, climate reality.

As proof, Cheap Seats offers the former, the scientific stylings of Dr. Don J. Easterbrook, professor of geology at Western Washington University, who took apart the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Among other things, Easterbrook points out that the earth has yet to return to the temperatures before the Little Ice Age began some 10,000 years ago.

“Warming and cooling has been going on for millions of years, long before [man-made] CO2 could have had anything to do with it, so warming in itself certainly doesn’t prove that it was caused by Co2,” Easterbrook wrote.

In fact, according to Easterbrook, the most recent warming was “not unusual, there have been at least three periods of warming/cooling in the past 15,000 years that have been 20 times more intense, and at least 15 have been 5 times as intense. ”

All that, of course, comes as news to the IPCC. Or it would, if its members bothered to read something other than their grant applications.

Easterbrook has read the most recent work of the climate alarmists’ hymnal.

His take: the IPCC 2013 report is chock full of highly biased, misrepresentations of material that amount to “not science at all – it’s dogmatic, political propaganda.”

It seems to Cheap Seats that Easterbrook might be too kind, but hey, it’s close enough.

    Is there any way that this kind of fact based information can somehow get into our school’s curriculum? I am getting frustrated watching our children being force-fed all this “Green” gloom and doom. It is sad to see small children being used in this political battle. How long will it take these new generations of youth to realize that they have been lied to and sold into fiscal slavery by the people they trusted the most. How did we ever allow the radical fringe to take over our children’s minds?

    Alas, no.

    One perfect example of this is at the Peak to Peak Charter School in Lafayette, CO.

    The school has a policy REQUIRING the presentation of both sides in issues deemed to be controversial in school science courses.

    The head of the science department REFUSES to present the truth as he considers global warming to be “uncontroversial because it’s settled science.”

    When both sides of an argument insists they have the facts; but the “facts” differ, then all we have is a difference of “opinion” . Global warming has become politically charged and if nothing else, should at least heighten our awareness that as a species on a planet, we can probably produce cleaner energy; I mean, have you ever gotten behind a vehicle spewing nasty black smoke and thought ” that crap is going in my lungs, and my kids lungs” ? it just takes some time to evolve to the next level. In the meantime, we all are entitled to our opinions.
