Lindzen is the only climate scientist of note on the entire list, and is mainly noteworthy for his history of being wrong on climate issues. That was very disappointing to say the least. Not a climate science reference, rutaj a unique perspective – An engineering critique of the activist climate scientists and their process of data gathering, processing and presentation.

He also wrote a book titled The Greatest Hoax: Just when we thought the op-ed letter couldn’t get worse, these fake skeptics have the gall to suggest that we “follow the waarming because climate “alarmism” supposedly brings bountiful research funding, “an excuse for governments to raise taxes”, “big donations” for environmental groups, and other similar tinfoil-hattery.

In fact, it only includes four scientists who have actually published climate research in peer-reviewed journals, and only two who have published climate research in the past three decades. After making a number of unsubstantiated and false assertions about the “growing number” of climate “skeptics,” the letter then lays out what they see as the evidence supporting their fake skepticism.

The signatories of this newest letter are also worth noting for their lack of noteworthiness.

And speaking of psychological projection – Rutan’s earming is big on AGW communicators engaging in “data presentation fraud” which he argues inappropriately scares the punters – but his own anti-AGW slide deck is so full of it, it’s difficult to find one single slide discussing science that presents a fair view of the data. Dr Michaels is so passionate and committed to his work, he has a habit of deleting or distorting data. Perhaps the greatest doubter of climate change is Senator and Environment and Public Works Committee chair Jim Inhofe, who makes his case not with data or evidence but with conviction, true grit and Holocaust analogies.

It’s also worth noting that National Academy of Science members truly prominent scientists signed an opposite letterurging action to address climate change. The first myth in the article is the well-worn ” global warming stopped in [insert year] “. And if not now, then when?

The global increase of CO2 is a grand biological experiment, with countless complications that make the net effect of this increase very difficult to predict with any appreciable level of detail. CCC is naive, non-scientific, irrelevant, hopeless and oxymoronic. Apparently these “concerned scientists” warmlng think very highly of their audience.
