Breaking News from AP: Seth Borenstein, Michael Mann & Andrew Dessler think climate skeptics are wrong!

November 24, 2015

By Paul Homewood  




In true, unpartisan fashion, AP has allowed Seth Borenstein to rate the top presidential candidates for their views on climate change.





And who might these “scientists” be?


Amongst others, Michael Mann, Andy Dessler and James Elsner!


Ryan Maue sums it up best:




Roger Pielke Snr chipped in:




Clr View reminds us:





Apparently Bernie Sanders was marked down to 87 because he exaggerated somewhat that global warming could make Earth uninhabitable!

Yet Ted Cruz came bottom, because he pointed out quite correctly that “if you look at satellite data for the last 18 years, there’s been zero warming. … The satellite says it ain’t happening."

Warmist James Elsner, who has published several junk papers claiming that tornadoes are getting worse when the reverse is actually true, explains why Cruz was wrong:


Florida State University’s James Elsner said ground data show every decade has been warmer than the last since the middle of the 20th century and satellite data-based observations "show continued warming over the past several decades."

In fact, federal ground-based data, which scientists said is more reliable than satellites, show that 15 of the 17 years after 1997 have been warmer than 1997 and 2015 is on track to top 2014 as the warmest year on record.


None of which contradicts what Cruz said, and which remains true.


Perhaps it is time that Mann and his junk scientists pals were rated, preferably by somebody with a bit more integrity and honesty than they have got. I suggest Bernie Madoff.

    Let Cruz rate them, seems only fair.

    This was my comment on the article:

    That is not a representative group of scientists. All of the AP’s eight chosen experts are apparently global warming alarmists, most of them extremists.

    The list starts with Penn State’s notorious Michael Mann and ends with his colleague, William Easterling. That is probably the American climate research group with the least credibility of all. To hear what another prominent global warming alarmist had to say about that group’s shocking scientific malpractice, Google-search or search on YouTube for:

    Climategate hide the decline explained by Berkeley professor Richard A. Muller

    Huber once wrote a paper describing the effects of “21-degree [Celsius] warming,” which is wildly beyond the realm of possibility.

    Dessler is a prominent climate activist, with a bad habit of smearing skeptical scientists.

    Elsner is the guy who promoted the thoroughly-debunked claim that American tornado strength has been increasing.

    McCarthy has written, in defiance of all evidence, that “the planet is in huge trouble” from climate change.

    Emmanuel Vincent is a climate activist who has launched a web site dedicated to attacking climate skeptics with misinformation.

    Of the eight scientists listed, the only one who appears to be doing more serious science than alarmist activism is Louisa Bradtmiller.

    And the clown prince of Wallies has recently stated that the rise of ISIS was due to climate change stresses. And Roger Hazzbin on BBC now saying that the Philippines will disappear because they are going to increase their coal burn.

    The Ministry of Truth is upon us. God save Big Brother.

    And COP 21 is close.

    Should I thank Seth Borenstein for validating my top 3 candidates for President? They are Dr. Ben Carson, Senator Ted Cruz and Mr. Donald Trump. I might have worried if those clowns had rated them “higher”. The left will always tell you who they fear by their most vicious attacks. It is just so refreshing to see all three of them handing these boobs their lunch and standing up to the leftist media bullies and pseudo-scientists.

    The Left is always on the side of the tyrants. Look at the sad 20th century, starting with the national socialist workingman’s party through Stalin, Mao, Caucescu and the rest. Clearly they would have preferred to leave Ghadaffi and Saddam in power, judging by today’s attitudes. It’s a matter of control.

    LOL! They are just one big joke. I’ve been looking at #cop21 tweets for a few days and not even alarmists are quoting these clowns any longer.

    JoNova turns this around nicely.. Hilarity Clinton is most gullible.

    The comment about how land based data is more accurate than satellite data reveals everything we already knew as that’s a deliberate, outright lie and it’s all they have left. What a sad state of affairs it has become.

    Land based data is more accurate than satellite data, which is why they’re continually adjusting land based data, including data they’ve already been adjusting for years.

    They’ve sunk to a new level of stupid.
