Title: trump’s climate change denial gets more ridiculous by the day
Post by: wvit1001 on 03 14, 19, 01:21:46:PM
kinda like you old tea party nuts on this forum.



Trump accepted the scientific reality that human activity, primarily burning fossil fuels, causes climate change. He signed on to an ad calling on President Obama to take action on climate change. That was 2009. In the decade since, Trump’s Fox News fixation has led him down a steep path of dangerous denial, culminating in his quoting of an industry PR flack who appeared on Fox and Friends to make some profoundly ridiculous claims.

Patrick Moore, who falsely claims to be a co-founder of Greenpeace, claimed that the “climate crisis” is “Fake Science” and that “carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life.”

First off, the people who call Puerto Rico home, or Paradise, California, or any number of cities and towns across the country and indeed the planet who have felt the already devastating impacts of climate change would beg to differ.

Back in 2015 Moore told an interviewer that one of Monsanto’s pesticides (Roundup) is not only not cancer-causing, but in fact that “you could drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you.” When the interviewer offered some to Moore to drink, and prove his point, Moore of course became agitated and angry and stormed out in a huff.

This is the sort of person Trump is apparently turning to for advice. A man who has spent decades doing the industry’s dirty work while trading off a youthful involvement in Greenpeace. A man who, in response to Trump, tweeted to indicate that he, too was in DC, attending a meeting of William Happer’s CO2 coalition, a fossil-fuel funded pro-pollution advocacy organization.

William Happer is also the man chosen by Trump to potentially lead a panel to conduct an “adversarial” review of climate science. Happer is a former physics professor who was caught in a sting in 2015 agreeing to take money from unknown oil and gas interests in exchange for writing a report full of climate denial. As to the quality of Happer’s climate science, well that’s hard to speak to because he doesn’t actually do any climate science, and never has. What he has done, though, is say insane (and offensive) things, like comparing the treatment of carbon dioxide to the “demonization of the poor Jews under Hitler.”

That’s the quality of advice Trump is seeking.

It’s one thing for Fox’s primary audience, with their failing faculties and dulled critical thinking skills, to be suckered in by their constant barrage of alternative facts and persuasive fictions. It’s quite another for the supposed leader of the free world, who has a thousand scientists at his disposal, to embrace such obviously unscientific claims with such conviction.

MMCC is the reality of our time, all real science organizations in the world agree on that.

there are many scientists and climate experts who do not agree with mmcc!

not many anymore and no real science organizations question MMCC.

[START]PRINCETON, NJ (January 3, 2011)—S. Fred Singer said in an
 
interview with the National Association of Scholars (https://www.nas.org/articles/The_Father_of_Global_Warming_Skepticism_An_Interview_with_S_Fred_Singer)
 
(NAS) that “the number of skeptical qualified scientists has been growing steadily; I would guess it is about 40% now.”

[START]Singer, a leading scientific skeptic of anthropocentric global warming (AGW), is an atmospheric physicist, and founder of the Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP), an organization that began challenging the published findings of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in the 1990s. SEPP established the Leipzig Declaration, a statement of dissent from the 1997 Kyoto Protocol that has been signed by over one hundred scientists and meteorologists.[/START][/FONT][/SIZE]

Poor nitwit, stuck in his own stupidity (http://www.aesopsretreat.com/forum/Smileys/classic/rolleyes.gif)

Apparently he also follows the Vatican on the issue, confusing his religion with another false religion !

enither the NAS or the NIPPC are scientific organizations.   both are rightwing mouthpiece organizations.

AlGore is not a scientist
But nitwit and other gullible stooge leftwingnut organizations believe his MMGW nonsense anyway (http://www.aesopsretreat.com/forum/Smileys/classic/rolleyes.gif)
