Peter Gleick Makes Progress… by Hoping People Die

Post by Brandon Shollenberger Rhetoric in climate change debates has never been highbrow.  There’s lots of name calling, gotcha games and other petty behavior.  Still, there’s something about suggesting people you dislike should die that turns most people off.  That’s why I was somewhat surprised when I read a blog post by Greg Laden which…

Peter H. Gleick, 'genius'

In a hilarious claim, Gleick proves once again his genius label is eclipsed by his own dogma. A couple of days ago I got pulled into the Twitter feed of Dr. Peter Gleick, we’ll get to that shortly. You know him, he’s the guy from the Pacific Institute who posed as a board member for…

The rise of the peccatogenesists

An interesting new word came up this week on Twitter thanks to Hillary Rosner. It would seem to be a derivative of the word pecadillo: I think this is the perfect word to describe many of the disingenuous activists like Al Gore, Joe Romm, Brad Johnson, Mayor Bloomberg, and Bill McKibben who see “human caused…

NASA's Gavin Schmidt @ClimateOfGavin goes full emotional – rorts himself with an unsupportable claim, Gleick plays 'me too'

Tom Nelson writes: The end days of the climate hoax are upon us: Award-winning climate communicator Gavin Schmidt calls distinguished Princeton physicist Dr. William Happer and NASA moonwalker Harrison Schmitt “idiots”. Unfortunately, Gavin forgot to check the data first. But that’s generally what The Team does when they take to Twitter. No science there, only…

I get the heave-ho from Hayhoe

Some climate scientists we know sure are notoriously thin skinned, as an illustration of this, today I got blocked by Dr. Katherine Hayhoe on Twitter after making my one and only Twitter comment to her. See below. Here’s the comment she made yesterday and my reply:

Masters, McKibben, and droughting Thomases

Every once in awhile you see something in the “it’s worse than we thought” meme that deserves some clarification for those that want to look at all the data, rather than those who want to push gloom and doom. A recent tweet by Bill McKibben thoughtlessly retweeting a statement by the Master of Disaster, Weather…
