Water Gun Fight Spills Into San Diego Mayor's Race

And I heard a rumor somewhere (on the Internet, so it MUST be true) that Peking Duck was the one who vandalized the pond and killed the koi. This rumor is proof positive that Filner is corrupt and on the take from concrete contractors and pond fish sellers who line his pockets.

At least by the standards of evidence of Harry Reid and his fellow Democrats, no?

Meteorologists Say Current Heat Wave Is Sign Of Climate Change

You just have to love how the catastrophe-mongers and their willfully ignorant dupes like to toss around "science" and "climate scientists" like a hippie's mantra. To paraphrase Inigo Montoya, "Those words do not mean what you think they mean".

Science is what comes from those who follow the Scientific Method. The promoters of CAGW have repeatedly demonstrated their open contempt for real science. In deliberate and direct violation of actual scientific principles, they REFUSE to allow independent verification of their "studies". Their data and workings are SECRET.

But when that data and code is forced out of hiding, like Mann's CENSORED ftp directory with his Hockey Stick data series, or Briffa's Yamal data, it is easily shown that theses "climate scientists" have engaged in fraud.

Any one who wants to dispute me had better be prepared to document where they have objected to the corrupt, anti-science conduct of Michael Mann, Keith Briffa, Phil Jones, Kevin Trenberth, David Overpeck, James Hansen and all the other promoters of Imminent! Global! Catatrophe! for which there is only two solutions: Government takeover of energy supplies; and more taxpayer money for "climate scientists".

A final question, one asked on Judith Curry's blog a year ago by a real scientist, Willis Eschenbach: "When members of your scientific community lie, cheat, and steal to further their own ends, should other members refuse to say anything bad about the wrong-doers?

Environment Groups Stage Elaborate Events for Climate Change Awareness

Hey, KPBS, please start telling the truth about the LACK of science behind all these "catastrophe! catastrophe!" claims from anti-science, anti-human political organizations claiming to be environmental organizations.!

There is no increase in weather disasters, from "climate change" or anything else. In fact, there are FEWER tornadoes and hurricanes than fifty years ago. As honest observers have pointed out, there is better REPORTING of violent weather events, but not more violent weather.

WattsUpWithThat.com, the best (and by far the most viewed) science website, has a good overview of the false claims of 350.org and the catastrophe-mongers at http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/04/19...

USD Scientist Getting The Word Out On Global Warming

One and a quarter million taxpayer's dollars for secret meetings with "key leaders". No doubt this will required first class airfare to five star tropical resorts so "climate scientists" like Boudrais can hobnob with these secret "leaders". Our Betters deciding how us plebes should live while they party.

One can be sure that the LAST thing Boudrais will discuss with these "leaders" is the LACK of science behind the claims of Imminent! Global! Catastrophe!

A scientist is someone who follows the Scientific Method. That requires allowing independent verification of one's work by making the raw data, computer codes, algorithms, etc., available to anyone who wants to know if the claims made are accurate. "Climate scientists" keep their data and methods secret as POLICY - they are not scientists.

Steve McIntyre at ClimateAudit for years - even before Climategate - exposed this policy by the leading lights of the CAGW movement: Michael Mann and the Hockey Team, Phil Jones, Keith Briffa, Lonnie Thompson, and all the core IPCC "lead authors".

The reason for the policy of secret data and methods has become clear when they are discovered (like Mann's "CENSORED" ftp directory) or forced out (like Briffa's Yamal data by a Royal Society publication) - the raw data is cherry picked, then massaged with phony statistical methods, or just literally turned upside down. Phrases like 'short-centered PCA', 'Yamal', and 'Upside Down Tijlander' are infamous among those who have dared take an honest look behind the "climate science" curtain.

Disgusting.

Burning Of Fossil Fuels Causing Rise In Ocean Acidity

Is it a surprise to anyone that Helen Hawes, the author of this nonsense, doesn't even do the least bit of fact checking of the claims she promotes here?

The oceans of the world are not acidic, they are BASIC - well below even a neutral pH level. Which even the most cursory research will show. But that's too much work for Helen Hawes, ace reporter.

And in the presence of so much CO2 bubbling up through coral reefs that the water is fully saturated, one site has a pH of 7.76, well below the neutral point. And the marine life thrives there:
http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/12/28...

Anyone with any kind of commitment to facts quickly learns that ocean acidification is no threat at all.

Burning Of Fossil Fuels Causing Rise In Ocean Acidity

That you compare scientific skeptics of the claims of imminent global disaster to Holocaust deniers says quite a lot - about you.

The facts are clear. The oceans are not acidic, they are in fact BASIC. But you and you fellow True Believers probably don't even understand "basic" in the language of chemistry, do you?

And neither you nor the author of the article any part of it, or provide a link for someone to actually find out what it actually says. Curious.

As for your 'corrupt' and 'on the take' questions: Anyone who claims to be a scientist but who refuses to follow the Scientific Method or who supports those who do is in fact corrupt. Like James Hansen, one of the High Priests of your church, who steals from taxpayers while working for Nazi collaborator George Soros, who paid him $ 720,000. Not to mention the hundreds of thousands of dollars Hansen has taken from political organizations.

Brown Vows to Fight "Cult-like" Climate Change Deniers

The pseudo-scientists behind the Hockey Stick and other global warming catastrophe frauds like to claim the Climategate emails need to be read "in context". Curious that THEY never actually discuss the context of what was happening at the time the emails were sent. But Steve McIntyre at Climate Audit has been doing so since Climategate 1.0 and now with the Climategate 2.0 even more so. The latest posting of his documents the context of some the FOIA refusals, events in which he was personally involved: http://climateaudit.org/2011/12/20/eu...

Another good 'context' posting is on Phil Jones' deliberate hiding of documents that were subject to FOIA requests: http://climateaudit.org/2011/12/18/ne...

Note: Steve McIntyre is a statistics expert who documented the Michael Mann's "Hockey Stick" was a result of improper statistics and cherry-picked tree rings. His forensic analysis of that was verified and supported by the Wegmann Committee and the National Academy of Science (and thanks to Climategate 2.0, we know his fellow members of the Hockey Team also knew Mann's "study" was false). He has also documented again and again the policy of "climate scientists" and the IPCC to violate the most core principles of the Scientific Method.

Brown Vows to Fight "Cult-like" Climate Change Deniers

Peking,

Stop setting up straw men and engage in honest debate for once.

I wasn't the one who repeated the lie that calling people who believe in science "deniers" *isn't* comparing them to Holocaust deniers.

And then you say such comparisons are all right with you with the despicable statement "but in the case of global climate change you are indeed talking about something that has and will continue to harm and kill a lot of people, so while it's not a tactic I would use personally I see the point."

You catastrophe-mongers really haven't got any honest arguments, do you?

You won't discuss the POLICY of "climate scientists" who dominate the IPCC to keep their data secret in deliberate violation of the Scientific Method, so you just engage in libel of those who ask inconvientent questions.

You can't defend Mann's use of short-centered principle components analysis so you repeat the bald-faced lies about the Oregon Petition: Peking:"Might I remind you of the famous "petition" those trying to discredit climate scientists floated around and deniers rushed to quote. It turned out it was riddled with fake names, duplicate names, and the "scientists" who did provide genuine signatures had BS degrees in Engineering and worked for companies who were against environmental regulations relating to polluting. (Shall we call this one "DENIERGATE"?)"

In fact, only a tiny handful of the over 9000 PhDs who signed the petition were trolls from YOUR side who lied. The rest of your claims are also lies, which is of course why you make that without any citations as to where you got them, no? The few fake names have been removed, but over 9,000 VERIFIED signatures against YOUR claims of Imminent! Global! Disaster! are still there and still valid. You catastrophe-mongers love to use your false claims of a scientific consensus but when faced with a REAL scientific consensus by over 9000 real scientists, revert to your usual tactic of libel.
See http://www.petitionproject.org/freque...

Some of us, Peking, understand REAL science, and despise the Lysenkoist frauds who lie about imminent global catastrophe in order to keep their gravy train running. It isn't about science, it's about the billions of taxpayer dollars flowing into the pockets of "scientists" who fly 5-star resorts to Bali, Durban, Rio, and other resorts for their 'conferences'.

Brown Vows to Fight "Cult-like" Climate Change Deniers

(continuing from previous response to "lesliegraham":

For one, ask yourself why it is that the leading lights of "climate science" have as POLICY the refusal to follow the Scientific Method? No one who refuses to allow independent verification of their work can in any sense of the word be considered a scientist. But the "scientists" behind CAGW all keep their data and methods secret.

Steve McIntyre at ClimateAudit for years - even before Climategate - exposed this policy by the "scientists" behind the CAGW movement: Michael Mann and the Hockey Team, Phil Jones, Keith Briffa, Lonnie Thompson, and all the core IPCC "lead authors".

The reason for the policy of secret data and methods has become clear when they are discovered (like Mann's "CENSORED" ftp directory) or forced out (like Briffa's Yamal data by a Royal Society publication) - the raw data is cherry picked, then massaged with phony statistical methods, or just literally turned upside down. Phrases like 'short-centered PCA', 'Yamal', and 'Upside Down Tijlander' are infamous among those who have dared take an honest look behind the "climate science" curtain.

"lesliegraham", if you have a shred of integrity, scientific or otherwise, you will educate yourself. I recommend"The Hockey Stick Illusion: Climategate and the Corruption of Science" by Andrew Montford. It is a very readable history of the CAGW movement and the story behind Michael Mann's phony claim that for over a thousand years, there was no global warming (or cooling) - until the 20th century.

I also suggest you follow some blogs by real scientists (but whom you call "deniers"): Judith Curry's "Climate, etc" blog (she is Chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology), Steve McIntyre's "Climate Audit", or Roger Pelkie's "Climate Science" blog. All these real scientists have published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. All understand (as I do) that the Earth has warmed (since the Little Ice Age), and all understand the radiation physics principles that a doubling of CO2 over the next century will only cause one degree of warming without the theoretical "positive feedback" claimed by your CAGW "scientists" (who refuse to defend their theories in public debate).

Brown Vows to Fight "Cult-like" Climate Change Deniers

lesliegraham: "It is overwhelmingly the climate change deniers, not scientists, who feign outrage and disingenuously attempt to link the term denier to the holocaust. This is transparant and utterly bogus."

How sad that you are so monumentally and willfully ignorant that you probably actually believe the nonsense you have posted here.

The comparison of skeptics of Imminent! Global! Disaster! from atmospheric CO2 to Holocaust Deniers is indeed a deliberate and long standing libel:

Ellen Goodman: ‘Global Warming Deniers Are Now on a Par with Holocaust Deniers’ http://newsbusters.org/node/10730

Mark Steyn: “Climate Holocaust Denier” : http://townhall.com/blog/g/e1f72884-3...

Even Nature Magazine, once considered a real science magazine, libeled Bjorn Lomborg as the moral equivalent of a Holocaust denier.
http://www.spiked-online.com/index.ph...

I suggest you stop beclowning yourself with foolish screeds like you've posted here and learn something about the claims behind CAGW.
