Extreme weather expert Dr. Roger Pielke Jr. writes in his latest essay, ‘My Unhappy Life as a Climate Heretic’, that he was basically harassed right out of the world of Global Warming research because he did the unthinkable: He told the truth!
“My research was attacked by thought police in journalism, activist groups funded by billionaires and even the White House.” writes the doctor.
Now it is important to point out that Dr. Pielke did not deny global warming or cooling, but only pointed out that the occasional extreme weather experienced cannot be tied to climate change and that recently it has been rather mild.
“My research led me to a conclusion that many climate campaigners find unacceptable: There is scant evidence to indicate that hurricanes, floods, tornadoes or drought have become more frequent or intense in the U.S. or globally. In fact we are in an era of good fortune when it comes to extreme weather. This is a topic I’ve studied and published on as much as anyone over two decades.” Dr. Pielke continues.
Oh, the horror!
With the Global Warming Hoax, you must not disagree with Al Gore’s grand conspiracy theories or out you go!
“Much to my surprise, I showed up in the WikiLeaks releases before the election. In a 2014 email, a staffer at the Center for American Progress, founded by John Podesta in 2003, took credit for a campaign to have me eliminated as a writer for Nate Silver ’s FiveThirtyEight website. In the email, the editor of the think tank’s climate blog bragged to one of its billionaire donors, Tom Steyer: “I think it’s fair [to]say that, without Climate Progress, Pielke would still be writing on climate change for 538.
WikiLeaks provides a window into a world I’ve seen up close for decades: the debate over what to do about climate change, and the role of science in that argument. Although it is too soon to tell how the Trump administration will engage the scientific community, my long experience shows what can happen when politicians and media turn against inconvenient research—which we’ve seen under Republican and Democratic presidents.”
It’s so rare to see such blatant truth…see where that gets you with liberals.
With everyone soooo serious lately – how about a little comic relief?
The Flipside with Michael Loftus makes fun of Joseph Clancy, the head of the secret service. This is one of the funniest skits I have ever seen. With Barack Obama heading out the door, maybe the Secret Service will finally get their act together! If not, Donald Trump will have to say, “You’re Fired!”
