It used to be that scientists were respected for their objectivity and adherence to the scientific method of inquiry … unfortunately, political ideology and billions of research dollars have thoroughly corrupted the scientist/activists purporting to know what is causing climate change and being able to predict an uncertain future.
Here is the poorly-kept secret that the scientists do not want you to know …
- Yes, climate changes and that is a part of nature where the Earth has been hotter, colder, with more atmospheric carbon dioxide, and less atmospheric carbon dioxide before the industrial revolution and that nature’s self-regulating feedback mechanisms seem to be working to keep the planet habitable. Even for those who live in the Arctic or the deserts.
- Yes, you would expect the planet to warm as we entered an interglacial period after the Little Ice Age.
- But, it is next to impossible to find man’s climate contribution signal amid the background noise of climate’s natural variability.
- And, nobody has produced a credible model that yields results that can be back-tested against historical data and predict the future with any degree of reliability. In fact, it appears that the data that drives these models has been highly manipulated to introduce a bias in the data.
Unfortunately, the scientists cannot explain why no significant warming has taken place for the past 18+ years using the modern and uncorrupted remote sensing (satellite) data set …
In fact NOAA’s recent attempt at explanation was met by derision and is now the subject of a federal investigation – with the scientists refusing to turn over their data, methodology, and deliberation documents to responsible scientists who could replicate, refute, or falsify their conclusion.
In the best tradition of progressive politics as dictated by Saul Alinsky and his Rules for Radicals, the progressive socialist democrats attract those who they fear the most … [My comments in bracketed blue italics]

Scientists: Ted Cruz Understands Less About Climate Than A Kindergartner
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has the poorest understanding of climate science of all the 2016 presidential candidates, according to a report card prepared for the Associated Press by eight climate and biological scientists.
On a scale from zero to 100, the scientists gave Cruz a six.
"This individual understands less about science (and climate change) than the average kindergartner," Michael Mann, a meteorology professor at Pennsylvania State University, wrote about Cruz's comments, according to the AP. "That sort of ignorance would be dangerous in a doorman, let alone a president."
The AP asked eight scientists chosen by professional science societies to grade the anonymous statements of Republican and Democratic candidates about climate science.
While Cruz had the worst score among Republicans, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush appears to have the best understanding of climate science in the GOP with a score of 64.
The scientists also docked points from Sen. Bernie Sanders' (I-VT) score for once exaggerating that "the planet that we're going to be leaving our kids and our grandchildren may well not be habitable."
"I would not say that the planet will become uninhabitable. Regardless of what we do, some humans will survive," Andrew Dessler, a climate scientist at Texas A&M University, said of Sanders' comment, according to the AP.
Here are all the candidates' scores, courtesy of the Associated Press:
Bottom line …
Science is a process of controlled skepticism and to label credible scientists as deniers or worse is to acknowledge that politics is polluting science for the purpose of advancing a political agenda. An agenda based on the Malthusian belief that planetary resources are finite and the populations must be managed by an enlightened ruling elite that subjugates an individual’s rights in favor or the collective. Pure socialism and communism.
That the progressive fear the well-educated, well-experienced, and well-spoken Ted Cruz more than any other single candidate is driving a frenzy of negativity as witnessed by this joke article from the Associated Press – a stunning display of childish simplicity and silliness.
We are so screwed.
