KKKate, in yet another too precious “Settled Science” post, links to a blog debunking yet another blog’s debunking of the so-called report released by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee which shrieks “Over 400 Prominent Scientists Disputed Man-Made Global Warming Claims in 2007”!!!1!!1!
Still with me? Good.
KKKate, and by extension, the “Editors” at the Climate Resistance blog (puh-leeeze ... was Justice League already taken?) are humping the fact that the Senate EPW report, in their narrow little minds, has completely gutted the veracity of the IPCC report on global warming with breathless claims including:
The following scientists named in this report have expressed a range of views from skepticism to outright rejection of predictions of catastrophic man-made global warming. As in all science, there is no lock step single view.
Well, that convinces me. I don’t know what I was thinking buying all those weird light bulbs, taking the bus to work instead of driving, and installing a brand new, high-efficiency gas furnace. My face is red. Not.
Because you see there’s one minor issue with this definitive Senate report – it was written by the Republican minority side of the EPW headed by none other than Sen. Inhofe (R-Fucktard/Exxon), global warming denier extraordinaire. And the 400 skeptical scientists? Well, Climate Progress takes care of that claim rather nicely.
“Padded” would be an extremely generous description of this list of “prominent scientists.” Some would use the word “laughable” (though not the N.Y. Times‘ Andy Revkin, see below). For instance, since when have economists, who are pervasive on this list, become scientists, and why should we care what they think about climate science?
I’m not certain a dozen on the list would qualify as “prominent scientists,” and many of those, like Freeman Dyson — a theoretical physicist — have no expertise in climate science whatsoever. I have previously debunked his spurious and uninformed claims, although I’m not sure why one has to debunk someone who seriously pushed the idea of creating a rocket ship powered by detonating nuclear bombs! Seriously.
I realize that KKKate will now attempt to debunk the debunking of her debunking but it’s really hard to take someone seriously when their rebuttal consists of sticking their fingers in their ears and saying “La, la, la, la, la ... I can’t heeearrrr yooouuuu!”
And furthermore. With Poppa Junker "Paul" on your side, there’s no end to the fun.
Double ewwww. Tootsie? Seriously? I bet you say that to all the girls, gramps.
