From “the stupid, it burns” department. Earlier this week, WUWT carried a story about why we should trust climate scientists – because science is able to predict the eclipse years ahead.
Never mind the fact that orbital mechanics is a precise calculation with essentially zero uncertainty, because the motions, masses, and speeds of bodies in the solar system aren’t fraught with the chaos and uncertainty that we see in the weather and climate system. Nooooo, let’s ignore the “uncertainty monster” and pretend that climate prediction is as certain as orbital mechanics.
Along those lines, Neil DeGrasse Tyson beclowned himself today:
Neil of course doesn’t seem to understand that the National Hurricane Center has operational meteorologists, not climate scientists. But when you believe weather is climate, I guess anything goes.
Sheesh. Pretty soon he’s going to outshine Bill Nye in the science stupidity category.
