Barry Woods just alerted the rest of us to this gem
In which you can see a bunch of desperate individuals issue a Message to Trump from Climate Scientists. Let’s forget for a moment that two of them (Peter Gleick and Stephan Lewandowsky) are proven liars, and concentrate on the first messenger, Katherine Hayhoe, of Texan Tech University.
She begins with this familiar message:
In the United States today, the number one predictor of whether we think climate is changing and humans are responsible is not how much we know about the science. It is simply where we fall on the political spectrum.
Thanks Katherine for your admission that you believe in climate change because you vote Democrat, and not because you’re a climate scientist
You say on your blog:
Hi. I’m a climate scientist
I study this amazing planet we live on
I crunch the data that tells us it’s warming
I help people prepare for a changing climate
And I believe that together we can fix this
Well so do I
And not because I’ve studied this amazing planet we live on (well, not as much of it as you have)
Though I’ve looked at the data you’ve crunched that tells us it’s warming
And for thirty years I’ve watched the Mediterraean rising 3 millimetres a year from the window of our tumbledown seafront shack
And I’ve watched the council bulldozer piling up sand to protect us against the winter storms
And though I personally vote communist
I think: “thank goodness for our right-wing municipal council
Preparing for a changing climate by piling the sand up, three millimetres higher every year”
And I believe that together we can fix this.
In your Youtube message to Trump, you continue;
”But a thermometer isn’t Democrat or Republican. It doesn’t give us a different answer depending on how we vote.”
Oh doesn’t it now?
Thousands of thermometer readings from decades in the past have been adjusted under Obama. According to your own number one predictor of whether we think climate is changing and humans are responsible, why shouldn’t that continue under Trump?
