Skeptical scientists outnumber the unskeptical ones
The “News” today: 15,000 scientists have signed some 25-year-old repeat failed climate doom prediction. Headlines are everywhere.
So today is also the perfect day to point out that ten years ago 31,487 American Scientists, including 9,029 with Ph.D.’s signed the Global Warming Petition Project warning that there is no convincing scientific evidence that man-made CO2 will cause catastrophic heating, and agreements like Kyoto (and Paris) are harmful and hinder science.
Opinion polls are a measure of sociology rather than science, but since skeptics win them, go forth and spread the word and shine a light on media bias, as well as on the large unheralded mass of skeptical scientists across the world.
The Petition Project was better done, done years ago, done twice, and has twice as many names on it.
Don’t miss the opportunity to pop in on the same journalists that think a list of 15,000 scientists doing a ten-second internet form is newsworthy, but 30,000 checked and accredited scientists signing and mailing a paper form is not.
Let them bask in their hypocrisy. Turn the screws on their cognitive dissonance. Be polite. Enjoy their struggle.
For the most part, the media actively ignored 30,000 scientists probably because it didn’t fit with their religion, their own voting preferences, or because they were afraid people they call “friends” might call them a name and stop inviting them to dinner.
Cowards. (Let’s talk about being brave: Art Robinson, who organized the Petition Project, later ran for Congress, and his three youngest children all had their Ph.D.’s simultaneously canceled, snatched or dismissed by none other than Oregon State University — the same place that this new “poll” is hosted — OSU.
That kind of industrial bullying and entrenched corruption is what keeps the weak and gullible following the line. Which journalist that “Fights for the Planet” is brave enough to speak up for one Ph.D. student?)
Fallacies piled on hypocrisy
The Petition Project was supposedly debunked because only 0.1% of the signers have a background in climate or meteorology.
But if we must play that game, the skeptical petition lists 341 meteorologists, but I notice the believers list only has 32 people with “meteo” in their qualifications or institute. Watch the commentators shoot down the doomsday poll for the same reason. Or watch …crickets.
Being serious for a moment, the real proportion of skeptical meteorologists is more like 50:50 according to proper polls.
When will believer-journalists admit the awful truth that climate scientists — many of whose careers hinge on the importance of a “crisis” — are so pathetically unconvincing that they can’t even persuade half of meteorologists that their predictions are meaningful?
- Half of meteorologists are skeptics.
- Two-thirds of geoscientists and engineers are skeptics.
- Less than half of climate scientists agree with the IPCC “95%” certainty (Strengers et al 2015).
Just because climate scientists have a vested interest doesn’t mean they are wrong, but on what planet are smart honest climate scientists unable to convince even meteorologists?
