Global Warming Becomes Democrat "Science" Orthodoxy

The entire Democrat party has now gone out on the limb with Al Gore's "Inconvenient Truth" that Global Warming is a sure thing. Nancy Pelosi has even formed a Congressional Global Warming COMMITTEE. Anyone who disagrees with this crackpot science is guilty of heresy according to the liberals. Should any weatherman dare to even question that Global Warming is imminent, they should be decertified as weather experts according to Heidi Cullen of the Weather Channel. Of course, the DUmmies completely support the decertification of any weather person who dares challenge the liberal orthodoxy on this subject as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Weather Channel Climate Expert Calls for Decertifying Global Warming Skeptics." So let us now watch the DUmmies call for the expulsion of all who do not buy into their crackpot science in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, never dreaming that his beloved Weather Channel would become an ally of the kook Left, is in the [brackets]:

Weather Channel Climate Expert Calls for Decertifying Global Warming Skeptics

January 17, 2007

[Who would have believed that the Weather Channel would become a part of the kook Left?]

The Weather Channel’s most prominent climatologist is advocating that broadcast meteorologists be stripped of their scientific certification if they express skepticism about predictions of manmade catastrophic global warming. This latest call to silence skeptics follows a year (2006) in which skeptics were compared to "Holocaust Deniers" and Nuremberg-style war crimes trials were advocated by several climate alarmists.

[Scientific questioning will NOT be tolerated!]

The Weather Channel’s (TWC) Heidi Cullen, who hosts the weekly global warming program "The Climate Code," is advocating that the American Meteorological Society (AMS) revoke their "Seal of Approval" for any television weatherman who expresses skepticism that human activity is creating a climate catastrophe.

[Was Heidi Culllen one of the jurors at the Galileo trial?]

"If a meteorologist can't speak to the fundamental science of climate change, then maybe the AMS shouldn't give them a Seal of Approval. Clearly, the AMS doesn't agree that global warming can be blamed on cyclical weather patterns," Cullen wrote in her December 21 weblog on the Weather Channel Website.

[So what was the cause of Global Warming before there were even humans on this planet?]

"It's like allowing a meteorologist to go on-air and say that hurricanes rotate clockwise and tsunamis are caused by the weather. It's not a political's just an incorrect statement," Cullen added.

[Accept my crackpot theory or you will lose your job!]

To me, it's clearly a good thing that the scientific community is starting to step up and call out the few remaining flat-earthers.

[The same "scientific community" that used to warn us about Global Cooling.]

I certainly hope so. I really hope this shuts these ignorant right-wing motherf*ckers up for good. Anyone who denies global warming should not only be stripped of their certification, but should also not be allowed to teach.

[And be forced to spend time in a re-education camp.]

cast out the non-believers then, we'll stone them in the village square.

[Cast out the non-believers for their heresy!]

For a meteorologist to deny global warming is like an M.D. denying that germs exist.

[Or a DUmmie to deny that reality exists which they do on a daily basis.]

If you think that suppression of alternate arguments advances science, then let me tell you a little story about Galileo.... Any argument that relies on suppression and name-calling seems to me to not be able to punch on its own. Prolly seems that way to a lot of other people. Let the process work. No one argues about the sun rising tomorrow, because the evidence is manifest. Soon it will be so with climate change, too.

[And this DUmmie WINS a Kewpie Doll for having a brief moment of mental clarity.]

Not believing in global warming strikes me a bit like saying
one doesn't believe in witches (aka Wiccans). They exist. Get used to it.

[Witches exist and so does Global Warming. Get used to it.]

Yeah, it's the future existence of the goddamned planet we're talking about. If certain scientists refuse to understand, by willful ignorance, the data then they should be discredited. Go back to school get some learnin' just like their dumbass leaderboy, bush.

[Should they go back to school at Pepperdine College in snowbound Malibu?]

These cretins need to have their credentials pulled as well. They can continue to say whatever they like.

[I say have a credential removal ceremony in the heart of snowbound Malibu.]

But to stifle science is wrong. Let science debate and we stay out of it.


Have you seen "Inconvenient Truth"?

[Produced by that highly skilled scientist, Al Gore.]

Where the hell have you been? The debate is over.

[And now we can completely close our minds to any inconvenient truths.]

I might even go one step further, and start reviewing broadcast licenses. After a few were yanked, I suspect that upper management and senior editors might actually start to police themselves and take serial liars like John Srossel off our public airwaves.

[Let the purges begin! Any questioning of liberal "science" orthodoxy shall result in BANISHMENT!]

Stripped of their scientific certification if they express skepticism? What next, burning books that have an alternate theory? Sorry, this is scary and dangerous, IMO. I remember the great "Global Freeze" theories of the 1970's. What if this had been done then?


The scientific community has not reached consensus about the cause. You're blending the near-consensus on warming, with the decidedly fractured range of opinions on what's responsible for the warming. Less than a thousand years ago, the Danes had established farming communities on Greenland (ever wonder why they called it Greenland, btw?), because a centuries-long warming period had freed the Southern Greenland landmass of ice and given it a climate similar to Scotland's. Three hundred years later, those farms were buried under hundreds of meters of ice, while Europe shivered through a Little Ice Age that regularly froze the Thames solid. Human-contributed greenhouse gases were obviously not the cause of either of those shifts. I staunchly believe climate change is underway right now. Let's allow good scientific debate to sort out the causes (political thinking, like religious thinking, is about dogma, not open inquiry). Politically, we'd be wise to assume that human activity is a major factor, and work to limit greenhouse emissions. That is, and should be, a progressive objective. Meanwhile, let science work through the evidence. Anyone who thinks there is a simple answer is unfamiliar with nonlinear causality in general, and the workings of climate in particular.

[Since you are making entirely too much sense, you may expect your imminent tombstoning.]

When we start casting out "heretics" it is no longer about science it is a religion.

[It is about POLITICS.]

Amazing to me that in 2007 we are still having to fend off people who would base SCIENCE on an ancient goat herder's religion.

[Abraham came along in the middle of a Global Warming. Or was it a Global Cooling?]

Heidi is backpedalling furiously as her "scientific" credentials and behavior are roasted like so many self-serving chestnuts.

Here's the blog where she actually has the audacity to deny her blatant attempt to silence the poor heretics who don't toe the GoreLine on Global Warming.

Read the comments... they're brutal!

We are experiencing the warmest winter in history here in Minnesota (according to the news) and the gas, oil, and natural gas prices are dropping due to the decrease in demand. The amount of injuries that can be contributed to shoveling snow, and slips and falls on ice-covered sidewalks, has fallen dramatically due to the lack of any significant snowfall. That lack of snowfall also reduces the chance of flooding in the spring. Traffic accidents are down, along with accompanied injuries and death. The frost level does not extend as deep in the soil than would occur during an average winter, leading to an early planting cycle in the spring and a longer, more productive growing season. Water mains in the major cities are not freezing and bursting, as they normally do in extreme cold, so there are no interruptions to the supply of water and no expensive repairs and related costs to the taxpayers. This is just a few of the benefits to Minnesotans during a higher than normal average temperature during the winter.

Based on this data, I see Global Warming as a good thing and we should do whatever it takes to speed it up!

Yes some places will have a better time than others. It may also come to pass that what is presently the grain belt becomes a dry, semi-desert.

I personally think that the Sun has heated the Earth up as it goes through a period of increased activity. The "cow fart" threory is of use to PETA, ALF and ELF.

I don't know much about climatology, but I do know about statistical modeling. (Or I'd better, since I do a certain amount and teach it.)

I'm not going to accept any model for Global Warming (or Global Climate Change or Global Bullshit-We-Gotta-Have-A-Huge Government Program Thingy or whatever) that doesn't include the incredibly important solar output, cloud cover, or water vapor inputs.

I'm calling shenanigans.

PJ makes a point when he saids it all about politics. But it goes further than that, It's mostly about our belief that we are like gods and we have tremendous powers that can, as does, effect the entire planet.

People tend to think of mankind as all knowing and all seeing, like a god, and we always use that false image whenever we make observations and predictions. The climate is warming up? Well, mankind is the dominate life form on this planet so it must be our fault; and since America is the dominate country it follows that it's mostly Americans that are to blame.

We are like gods! That's the basic premise from which all observations are performed and all predictions are generated. We see that premise in theoretical physics with the much ballyhooed "observer effect." And that premise is applied to every single scientific discipline.

We are, by nature, curios so we love to observe and compare everything. We are, by nature, analytical so we try to discover what is the cause of some change we observe. We are, by nature, intuitive, so we try to make guesses as to what changes will occur in the future. We are also, by nature, skeptical and we must have 'definitive proof' so we create 'scientific' observations, testing procedures, predictive models, and theories to provide a 'reasonable proof' that is accepted by a majority of learned scientists (even bigger gods!), but only by following that basic premise that mankind is the root cause and has the biggest effect. We accept anything that includes mankind in the equation. We reject anything that does not include mankind as a cause and a effect. We are the ONLY casue and we are the ONLY cure.

We ARE Gods and no one can tell us otherwise! That is the basic premise. The Global Warming debate shows this premise more so than any other debate at this time.

A liberal aquaintance who is definitely on the "man causes global warming" bandwagon let the cat out of the bag.

It is his contention that, since this is a global problem and "there are some of us who can see what needs to be done" that there should be a form of world supervision that has powers to rush about and make things right.

This "super-green world order" would, of course have to be run by the intelligentsia (lefties) who can "see" what needs to be done, and they would form a sort of priesthood, above and beyond the 'normal' day to day mundane running of countries.

Leaves out all that nasty business of elections, and choice, don't you see... Puts the "right" people in charge. Permanently.

The seriousness of his pronouncements was frightening. Gives me the willies that an otherwise sane person actually harbors delusions like this.
