Stick ’em in your yard when you need to know the weather (like a weather rock). If you see a shadow, it’s sunny; if they’re blue, it’s cold outside; if they’re wet, it’s raining; if they’re white, it’s snowing; if they’re on their side and rolling around the yard, it’s windy.

I see a caveman sitting by a fire warming his hands, with a mile of ice overhead in the background. Another caveman is standing alongside, saying “see, I told you it would change the climate”.

Those anthropogenic warming bias folks (sometimes also referred to as climate scientists) will auto-recycle into global cooling and will do it faster than you can say “kiss a duck”.

Marcus The difference between A Conservative And a Liberal : A Conservatives made their money by working hard for it and would like every one to be rich like them. A Liberal makes their money from hand outs Gov., funding, and keeps everyone very poor which they know will then vote for them. I can never understand, the poorer you are the more they vote Liberal.

Question – What to do with now unless climate scientists who are of the kind with bias that requires there must be large and dangerous GW from fossil fuels?
Answer – Leave them be, ignore them, the free marketplace will relocate them in suitable jobs.
For instance, they have proven by their climate science stories (aka popular scary mythologies) that they would make great supernatural fantasy writers for edgy graphic novels. Marvel Comics will take a good share of them.
Capitalism of the laissez faire sort is the ultimate recycler of human resources.

Trofim Lysenko’s fate is revealing as to the eventual fate of many of today’s Climate pseudoscientists and their editor enablers at once-prestigious journals.. Stalin of course protected Lysenko,, as did Nikita Krushchev. Once Krushchev was gone, 1964, scientists within the Soviet Academy felt secure in coming out to criticize him. Investigations followed and he was fired and his work shown as falsified junk. He died in disgrace in Moscow in 1976.

He died at the age of 78. Stalin died at the age of 74. Both lived well beyond the usual for their day. I would say both did OK. Perhaps Stalin would have lived longer if he hadn’t keep trying to kill Tito … or maybe not.
Russian live expectancy. Did Tito poison Stalin?

I have a different theory. In “Stalin’s Last Crime” the author makes the point that Stalin was preparing to reinstitute the “Terror”. And start WWIII. Anyway, the Terror would have been hazardous to the health of the Soviet leadership. From the symptoms, it is suspected that Khrushchev and Berea fed him Wafrin.

This seems entirely appropos: if climate science is indeed settled, why are we bothering to pay climate scientists anymore at all? Retain those that are able to adapt themselves to “mitigation science” and boot the rest of them out. That seems a whole lot more palatable than paying these charlatans for years to come.
