Laughable flashback: Warmer scientist on key CRU ‘scientists’ just last month: ‘They have done a tremendous service to the scientific community—and to the planet….They deserve medals….’

By Editor Climategate, Hacked Hadley CRU files, Joe Romm, Phil Jones, Tom Wigley Comments Off on Laughable flashback: Warmer scientist on key CRU ‘scientists’ just last month: ‘They have done a tremendous service to the scientific community—and to the planet….They deserve medals….’

Of course, Google is great for dredging this kind of stuff back up.  Now it seems laughable in retrospect.

As quoted by Joe Romm, Ben Santer on CRU crew members Phil Jones and Tom Wigley:

I have known Phil for most of my scientific career. He is the antithesis of the secretive, “data destroying” character the CEI and Michaels are trying to portray to the outside world. Phil and Tom Wigley have devoted significant portions of their scientific careers to the construction of the land surface temperature component of the HadCRUT dataset. They have conducted this research in a very open and transparent manner—examining sensitivities to different gridding algorithms, different ways of adjusting for urbanization effects, use of various subsets of data, different ways of dealing with changes in spatial coverage over time, etc. They have thoroughly and comprehensively documented all of their dataset construction choices. They have done a tremendous service to the scientific community—and to the planet—by making gridded surface temperature datasets available for scientific research. They deserve medals—not the kind of deliberately misleading treatment they are receiving from Pat Michaels and the CEI.

Alarmist extraordinaire Joe Romm initially observed and diagnosed the malady Anti-Science Syndrome (ASS), but turned out to be woefully wrong:

One tell-tale symptom of ASS is that a website or a writer focuses their climate attacks on non-scientists. If that non-scientist is Al Gore, this symptom alone may be definitive.

The other key symptoms involve the repetition of long-debunked denier talking points, commonly without links to supporting material. Such repetition, which can border on the pathological, is a clear warning sign.

But, Romm did get one part right about ASS:

…it can be dangerous to the health and well-being of humanity if enough people actually believe the victims.

Yes, the health and well-being, i.e. individual liberties, of humanity definitely would have been endangered had the CRU crew (coined a new term?) been successful in defrauding the public with their junk science, and bringing on their Progressive Utopian reorganization of society via the lie that the earth’s thermostat needed to be turned down a fraction of a degree.

Yes, the CRU crew certainly suffers from ASS.

Note: I’ll henceforth call the Jones, Mann, Schmidt, Trenberth, et. al. the “CRU crew” when referring to them as a group, as they no longer deserve to be called scientists – as evidenced by their ASS.

In this new video, Joe Romm uses the preferred strategy of alarmists of using “an over-representation of factual presentations“, and also “scaring the pants” off of the public.

Joe Romm: ‘major study predicts rapid warming…nearly 0.3°F by 2014’. So what? That would make up less than half the temperature drop since An Inconvenient Truth was released

By Editor AIT Index, Al Gore, An Inconvenient Truth, Joe Romm Comments Off on Joe Romm: ‘major study predicts rapid warming…nearly 0.3°F by 2014’. So what? That would make up less than half the temperature drop since An Inconvenient Truth was released

Climate alarmist extraordinaire, Joe Romm, reports:

Another major study predicts rapid warming over next few years – nearly 0.3°F by 2014

From 2009 to 2014, projected rises in anthropogenic influences and solar irradiance will increase global surface temperature 0.15 ±0.03 °C, at a rate 50% greater than predicted by IPCC.

So conclude Judith Lean, of the US Naval Research Laboratory, and David Rind, of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in a new Geophysical Research Letters study, “How Will Earth’s Surface Temperature Change in Future Decades?” (subs. req’d).

Let’s provide a little perspective for Mr. Romm:AIT Index 7_09

And if Mr. Romm doesn’t understand the point made by the Al Gore/AIT Index, Vol. 14 above, I’ll explain further. If an approximately 4 1/2 year .3°F (.16°C) temperature rise is what Romm would call “rapid warming”, certainly a .74°F (.39°C) cooling trend in only 3 1/2 years (since An Inconvenient Truth was released on January 24, 2006 at the Sundance Film Festival) is certainly something to be alarmed about – if you’re an alarmist.  I’m not.

Even if Romm is correct about the predicted warming, it would only serve to make the larger point that the temperatures go up, and then they go down, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on.

What’s your point, Joe?

Joe Romm: ‘Gore occasionally makes statements one can quibble with’

By Editor Al Gore, Joe Romm, Letter to the Editor Comments Off on Joe Romm: ‘Gore occasionally makes statements one can quibble with’

That’s just the way an alarmist gently admits that Al Gore lies.

That Marc-Morano-smearer, Joe Romm, is at it again.   Romm, has gained quite a reputation for spouting off with what Al Gore would call an, ahem, “…over-representation of factual presentions on how dangerous it [anthropogenic global warming] is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are….”

In the New York Times today, Paul Krugman said of the congressmen who voted against Waxman-Markey that their action (or inaction) was akin to “treason against the planet”.

The Morano-smearer, Joe Romm, agrees with this sentiment saying that his own hyperbolic language may be “too mild”:

Some have asked whether I’m using too-tough language against those devoted to delaying or blocking action needed to stop catastrophic global warming.  Actually, most of the time I think it is too mild….

And so it seems that the Morano-smearer thinks it might be necessary to kick up the hyperbole a notch:

…the times this blog gets bluntest are when I think about how future generations will speak about us if we fail to spend the tiny amount of our vast wealth needed to prevent their decades and centuries of incalculable misery — see “Intro to climate economics: Why even strong climate action has such a low total cost — one tenth of a penny on the dollar.”  They won’t be calling us “The Greatest Generation.”  They will be cursing our name as “The Greediest Generation,” as the Bernie Madoffs of the global Ponzi scheme we created to enrich ourselves unsustainably at their expense.

The Morano-smearer, Joe Romm, says that the solutions to this non-existent problem will only cost a “tiny amount of our vast wealth” to solve his imagined problem.  BS! President Obama has already said during his presidential campaign that his cap and trade program would cause our electricity bills to “necessarily skyrocket“.

But, you go Joe! Knock yourself out! And when the fraud of man-made global warming is exposed for all to see I hope you are held as an accessory to the crime of perpetrating a fraud on the American people.

Heh. Via Climate Progress, the blog by that Marc Morano smearer, Joe Romm. This comment, noting anecdotal cold weather in Chicago…

So far, June’s chill is one for the records
By Steve Kahnon June 12, 2009
WGN chicago
The cloudy, chilly and rainy open to June here has been the talk of the town. So far this June is running more than 12 degrees cooler than last year, and the clouds, rain and chilly lake winds have been persistent. The average temperature at O’Hare International Airport through Friday has been only 59.5 degrees: nearly 7 degrees below normal and the coldest since records there began 50 years ago.

More bad weather is on the way Saturday with a cold rain expected to linger through the bulk of the morning. Rainfall could be heavy — especially north of the city, which would be a reversal of Thursday’s deluge that targeted the southern suburbs.

…spurred this response from an alarmist…

Chicago’s not the world.

Spain’s having a warmer than normal late spring.

Thus far, June in Portland, Oregon has been 5C (9F) over normal.

LOL! So “hogaza” finds it easy to smack down “SamB” for citing the anecdotal cold spell in Chicago by logically saying, “Chicago’s not the world.”

But, anecdotal weather has an irresistible allure, and casts a spell that mere mortals (or alarmists, at least) are powerless to resist. Although “hogaza” clearly demonstrates his alarmist wisdom on the Marc Morano smearer‘s blog by smacking down the anecdotal cooling, on the very next line, the wise “hogaza” himself succumbs to the all-powerful and irrestible anecdotal warming in Spain and Portland, Oregon.

Truly a hypocrite.
