Guest essay by Eric Worrall
h/t JoNova – The following is a video presentation by John Christy from 2015 (published a few days ago), in which Christy uses his tremendous communication skills to help a non-specialist audience understand what is wrong with climate models, and the terrible moral downside of attempting to restrict CO2 emissions.
John Christy is the Alabama State Climatologist and a climate scientist with the University of Alabama. In 1991 he received the NASA Medal for Exceptional Scientific Achievement for his contribution to global temperature monitoring. In 1996 he received a special award from the American Meteorology Society.
One of the most interesting parts of the video is the Q&A section at the end of the video, as Christy answers questions and clarifies issues for intelligent students who have been fed a lot of nonsense about climate change.
My favourite question and answer;
“Why do you think there has been such an agreement in the scientific community towards one side of the debate? I’d like to think the scientific community accepts points according to the evidence”.
“What you see in terms of the consensus and so on are self selected groups. They for example the authors of the IPCC are selected by governments because of their views. Guess what they produce? The results you would expect. I’ve been a lead author myself and a reviewer, throwing at them, this would not stand up in court. What you’re claiming here in the IPCC would not stand up under cross examination, yet it goes through anyway”.
My thought – if we could clone half a dozen John Christy’s and send them out to all the classrooms of America, the climate scare would collapse overnight.
