Watch Mann and Lewandowsky make fools of themselves live

The AGU Chapman gabfest is being streamed live. Up this AM, are two notable alarmists who will surely provide back to back entertainment. Times are U.S. Mountain.

10:05 a.m. — 10:25 a.m. Scientific Uncertainty in Public Discourse: The Case for Leakage Into the Scientific Community Stephan Lewandowsky
10:25 a.m. — 10:45 a.m. The Battle to Communicate Climate Change: Lessons from The Front Lines Michael Mann

Gleick will be up at 3:40 p.m. — 4:00 p.m. with Grand Challenges at the Interface of Climate, Hydrology and Water Systems

I’d say his biggest “grand challenge” is overcoming his self admitted crime. Though, AGU doesn’t seem to care.

You can watch online, details follow. 

Full schedule here: http://chapman.agu.org/climatescience/live-web-session-schedule/

Watch live online: http://chapman.agu.org/climatescience/virtual-meeting/

They ask for your name and email address to watch, likely so they can solicit you for membership later. But, it seems any name/email address will do.

Or, you might just try skipping direct to the live link they presented to me after registration:

http://chapman.agu.org/climatescience/virtual-meeting/live-video/

Supposedly, you can submit questions to the speakers. We’ll see.

    Sorry. Not interested. I get enough of this kind of inappropriate application of statistical analysis (and outright just plain kindergarten level of understanding) and political maneuvering in the public educational system. It discourages me greatly to see how wide spread it is in other disciplines.

    Judging from the results, most people taking the test have never heard of the consensus.
    20% of the test sample got “Which gas makes up most of the Earth’s atmosphere?” right. Sigh. I assume the answer most often chosen was oxygen (20%), but I suppose it could have been CO2 (400ppm). Bigger number and all that….

    Michael Mann’s multiple illusions : a runaway warming Earth, whose causes Mann is valiantly
    fighting , virtually alone (despite his 97% majority), battling Big Oil (read : Arab forces),
    providing himself with high ranking (but phony) title (Nobel laureate). And now, with
    static temps, a severe lack of ammunition. It’s tough out there, boys, says the battle-
    hardened Mann, but I won’t rest as long as my govt welfare funding holds out.
    What a man, that Mann.

    As of now it’s still 20% – I would dearly love to know what people are giving as a response – more than likely O – but wouldn’t it be interesting if it were CO2?

  23. policycritic says:

    I’ve never heard him either, and as everyone knows, I’m not a scientist. But listening to Mann’s Lysenko bit and political carbon tax argument right now, I feel as if I’m listening to a public relations guerrilla workshop on how to get an idea across.

    Actually, this is an amazing discussion. This is how these people operate and think? Complaints that they have to open up their code to justify their hypotheses?

  34. _Jim says:

    questioner: ‘ … a matter of believing in science …’

    Looking into the Bizarro world of Michael Mann, from our standpoint, there is no ‘logic’ there … if I could explain his rationale and you understood it, we would both be as deluded and insane as he is. Thank your lucky stars.

    PS. He was trying to draw the analogy between ‘big tobacco’ and big oil and that years later … well, that’s his nuttiness on display anyway on that subject (“Everything is a conspiracy/they’re out to get me!”) Insane. If he were to approach this with any amount of logic and real science he would lose and his glory-grabbing days would be SO OVAH.

    Ah, there’s an analysis at http://www.people-press.org/2013/04/22/publics-knowledge-of-science-and-technology/

    Notably, even most college graduates could not identify the gas that makes up most of the earth’s atmosphere. Just 31% correctly say it is nitrogen, while an identical percentage (31%) incorrectly says it is oxygen. Among those with a high school education or less, oxygen is the most frequent response.

    I don’t remember what the other choices were.

  49. Alvin says:

    The reason you are seeing Mann try to draw similarities to Tobacco is this study (full of strawmen as it is) trying to link the tobacco battles of the 90’s to the Tea Party – http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/hottopics/msg0213060615278.html

    I read the study, if that is what you can actually call it, and found myself laughing as this is what passes for peer review now. If you read their methods in the abstract you can wonder to yourself if using propaganda is a proper reference material.

    But there is Mann’s source, a politically biased cadre of non-profits dedicated to attacking conservative groups. I wonder if they had trouble getting their 501 (c) 3 from the IRS?

    This is junk !

    Alley up now and uses a mischaracterization of Plate Tectonics to support his assertion that Climate ‘Science’ and its ‘Predictions’ are better. Did I hear “infinitely better’? He uses a slide with a time-line from Fourier (Greenhouse Effect), Tyndall and Arrhenius THEN puts in Plank, Einstein and Wegener [really does not belong because he got a lot of physics wrong that was explained in the 1960's by a lot of physicists].

    I’m getting sea-sick from the spin that’s gushing here.

    I had to stop. No point in watching further.

    It’s just junk !
