Eight Years and Still Waiting! (Addended)
08/18/2012 18 Comments
I have been blogging on climate change issues since August 2004. Every day I went to the mail box to see if some oil wretch had finally sent me a check for my fine work in exposing the anthropogenic global warming hoax. After eight years I was beginning to lose faith, but my spirits soared when I read Governor Brown’s new Climate Change web site when I learned that I am an oil company lackey.
I am sure that all my checks are waiting from me in some drop box and my spam filter swallowed the e-mail telling me where it was located. I am going to send an e-mail to the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, they must know where this drop box is, other wise they would not have declared that I was on the payroll of “industries with a financial interest in ignoring climate change.”
I was dismayed when this august research organization, with not one person on the staff with climate change expertise, claiming that most climate change deniers have little or no expertise in climate science. You do not have to be a PhD in Climate Science to read peer-reviewed papers, dissect UN IPCC science reports, to collect the raw data from government data bases, write R programs analyze this raw data and then plot the information on a blog for everyone to see and critiques. Any sixth graders could read the Climategate e-mails and recognize the anthropogenic climate change fraud that was being serve up to the public in press releases, which we soon learn was based on thinly written science reports by rent seeking scientists.
On the other hand the Governor’s “scientific” team were more than capable of crafting their own press releases and a web site filled with scientific crap and not one of them has a Phd in Climate Science. So by their own criteria we should ignore there pitiful pleading and listen more closely to Mother Nature who does not read web sites, press releases and environmentalist talking points.
Thanks to the Governor and his crap filled Climate Change web site, he has reenforced the reason for my blogging and has given me the strength to carry on for another year, or until Mother Nature’s voice cannot be ignored, and the political hacks in Sacramento can no longer ignore the howling winds of a colder world.

According to the Union of Concerned Scientists [an organization that anyone can join who has a credit card, including an card holders dog] Exxon-Mobile Spent Nearly $16 Million to fund skeptic groups to create confusion between 1998 and 2005. Now I see why I may not have gotten a check after all, too late to the table.
“ExxonMobil-funded organizations consist of an overlapping collection of individuals serving as staff, board members, and scientific advisors that publish and re-publish the works of a small group of climate change contrarians.”
But they were pikers compared to the National Science Foundations in the promotion of of Anthropogenic global warming:
Efforts to advance climate-change education in schools and communities are getting a boost from a set of six grants awarded this week by the National Science Foundation, totaling nearly $19 million. The grants will support a number of efforts, including a joint project in Maryland and Delaware to help schools deliver effective and regionally relevant instruction in grades 8-12, and pay for work led by the New England Aquarium to enhance climate-change education in zoos, aquariums, and other settings.
Additional AGW propaganda grants include:
• $5.7 million to Columbia University for a project to help the public understand climate issues in the polar regions, with a focus on “novel educational approaches,” including gaming and game-like activities;
• $2.2 million to the Franklin Institute Science Museum to engage urban residents in community-based learning about climate change and the prospects for enhancing urban quality of life through “informed responses to a changing Earth”;
• $1.1 million to the University of San Diego to develop a new model for educating both the general public and key decision makers; and
• $2.5 million to Pacific Resources for Education and Learning to enhance climate-change education in the Pacific Island region, w+ith involvement of school systems, universities, and others.
