Every once in a while, an anti-science, climate doomsday-porn pimp will rouse me from my self-imposed, sabbatical blogging slumber.
Indeed, this recent article by Ron Clutz regarding an alt-left, social justice warrior scientist – seemingly with a pimp’s penchant for exaggerated alarmism porn – certainly was a motivational prod for moi.
My conclusion? Sarah E. Myhre, Ph.D. is a scientist that no one should believe, as she is obviously all activist, with a neurotic obsession to express politically correct platitudes and nostrums. (And I am sure many in the public were as unimpressed with her objectivity as I was when she reflexively spouted her alt-left “Trump is a white supremacist” schtick.)
As her own home web page indicates, this “scholar” is more about social justice and virtue signaling than anything to do with real scientific inquiry and veracity.
As for scientific empirical evidence, she is similar to all the alt-left personages who are eager to make bold claims without any actual evidence of scientific reality (no, climate models and their associated predictions are not empirical evidence).
Ron’s article and his earlier one about her demonstrate the self-inflicted wounds of her belief system trumping the real world climate data.
In the case of her recent claim that science links storms with climate change, she reveals her alt-left leanings with that empirically bogus claim. There is no evidence whatsoever that any given hurricane storm over the last 20 years, be it Harvey, Irma and so on, is a result of climate change. NONE. ZILCH, NADA.
To say otherwise amounts to a blatant disregard of the actual empirical observed evidence and known science.
Myhre and others of her ilk will long be remembered as the root cause that produced the large current public mistrust of the scientific community and journalism.
Finally, she is definitely not a person who should be allowed a seat at the table of rational and objective scientific debate or important policy-making discussions. Again, her own homepage proves she is nothing more than a political lefty SJW hack masquerading as a scholar-scientist in a white lab coat.
