Last week, I published my article “Democrats keep lying about global warming” about Dr. Steve Running of the University of Montana and his unethical claim to have a Nobel Peace Prize.
Seems Dr. Eric Grimsrud has a problem with my article. He added two comments so far. Here I reply to his comments. My reply is of necessity too long for a comment. So I publish my reply as this new post.
You believe human carbon dioxide emissions will destroy planet Earth. Yet your quest to “prove” your case continues to fail. Here’s why.
You believe your key to proof is to personally denigrate all who claim your scientific conclusion is wrong.
Back in Climate Clash, you claimed Richard Lindzen was a pseudo scientist because you could not prove his published papers on climate were wrong.
You are preoccupied with the question of “Who is the smartest?” You believe the answer to this question determines who is correct about climate. It doesn’t.
You brag about your scientific papers because you believe the number of your published papers proves you are correct about climate. It doesn’t.
All your published papers were about a relatively narrow subject in chemistry. You have no demonstrated expertise outside this narrow field. You have no expertise in numerical models, meteorology or climate physics.
You brag about the subjects you studied. You believe this proves you are correct about climate. It doesn’t.
Your list shows you missed the most important course: the philosophy of science. [Read more…]
Dr. Nebert is a physician-scientist with 50 years of work in basic and clinical research. He has over 500 publications. His public-oriented articles, like this one, are about busting myths. He uses scientific facts to counter publicly accepted hype and hysteria. The Cincinnati Enquirer published this article in May 2015. – Ed

The media constantly strives to increase newspaper and magazine circulation; also the number of radio listeners and television, online and podcast viewers. One effective way to achieve this goal is to exploit the theme: “Should I worry?”
For example, after World War II was the “flying saucer scare”. Worry about an invasion from outer space certainly sold more newspapers and magazines and increased television news-watching. This concern also led to the government-funded program, Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). [Read more…]
This is an excellent and accurate 5-minute video by Professor Richard Lindzen of MIT.

Robert Petersen (Daily Inter Lake, Jan 31) writes “Look east at the glaciers that are no longer there,” to support his belief our CO2 causes global warming. He does not understand cause and effect.
He assumes the almost linear decrease in Glacier Park glaciers since 1830 means our SUVs caused the decrease. Sorry, effect cannot precede the cause. Nature causes glacier change, not our CO2.
He assumes today’s temperatures are the highest in thousands of years. Sorry. Not even close.
He assumes warmer weather proves our CO2 caused it. Sorry. Effects do not prove their cause.
He writes, “Educate yourself.” Yes, indeed. Start with good data. Use good science to determine cause and effect. You will find that nature, not our CO2, drives climate.
A short, total rebuttal to climate alarmism
Aztec priests told people they must cut out their beating hearts to bring better climate for their crops. The people believed them.
Today’s climate priests tell people they must cut out their CO2 emissions and pay penances to other nations, like China, to save our climate. The people believe them.
It’s time for you to think for yourself.
I will show you physics “secrets” that will change everything you “believe” about climate.
The real climate debate is about the scientific method. This is the critical “philosophy” part of science that most people and many scientists do not understand.
To help us understand the scientific method, let’s drop in on a fictitious federal murder trial in San Francisco. [Read more…]
