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