Climate For All

An All Around Science Blog

You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me !

‘Don’t Demonize the Messenger!’

Once again, we have the green movement feigning innocence and that familiar message,’ Nothing to see here people, please move on.’

Elizabeth E. May is the co-author with Zoe Caron of Global Warming for Dummies  and leader of the Green Party of

Canada. So its no wonder that the National Post printed this article she wrote for them Thursday, March 11th, 2010:

‘Climate scientists are ethical and honest. They just happen to have some bad news.’

Here are a few quotes from that post I thought was worth mentioning. If you like to read the article, just go here :

Climate scientists are now in a maelstrom of competing caricatures. In the Post last week, Patrick Keeney ( “Trust us, we’re experts,” March 5) described them as schemers, cooking the books, using PR and spin. Those who wish to believe the climate crisis is not the result of human activity herald as heroes scientists who disagree with the consensus view, while others deride them as corrupt.


The truth is that scientists are a bunch of different kinds of people. They tend toward knowing their own area of work in depth, having a distrust of politics and media, and possessing a healthy degree of skepticism.

They are also ethical, hard working and honest. The literature is rife with differing opinions, but these differences are on the edges of the science. No legitimate dispute remains about the fact that we have changed the chemistry of the atmosphere and that the results are already being witnessed in a destabilized climate…. There is no explanation for this other than human activity.

Their Climate Research Unit focuses on paleo-climatology — the painstaking attempt to reconstruct a temperature record from proxy data, such as tree rings. Having read the stolen email record, it is clear that the out of context sentences given such overblown coverage do not suggest any dishonesty.

Is there really any message here ? Elizabeth May says that climate scientists have a distrust of politics and possess skepticism.

She obviously never heard of James Hansen. James Hansen possesses neither a distrust of politics or any visible skepticism. James Hansen, leading science member of GISS,  is a political activist and who recently was involved with Daryl Hannah in a protest at Coal River Mountain, a site designed for coal mining.

Elizabeth May is purposefully misdirecting the reader to false conclusions. There wasn’t a shred of truth in any of this article.

If there is any messenger who deserves to be demonized, that would be the writer of this article, Elizabeth May, Leader of Canada’s own Green Party.

    You state…
    “So its no wonder that the National Post printed this article she wrote for them ”
    but the link is to the Province news paper.
    I read the National Post every day and I don’t recall reading this article you site.
    The National Post is more of a conservative paper than a liberal paper, where global warming alarmism is usualy accepted without question.
    The National Post may have been where I first learned that Man Made Global Warming was a myth, and now a hoax.

    Ok, I remember the article now. I must have skipped most of it as I am already well aware of the simillar writings from other global warming alarmists dismising the climategate emails as nothing to see here and the rest of the BS.
    Never the less, the National Post has been a great resource for AGW skeptics.

    [Reply]- I like the National Post as well. And I would rather not dog em over this article. Maybe thats why I chose to link up the article from the other paper. Mental slip I suppose. D. Alan-

    I agree that consensus, groupthink scientists are nice people too. They just want to get paid for doing “science” the way the international alliance of government funding agencies wants them to report “science.”

    A few of the brighter ones know that they are reporting absolute nonsense, but they also know that they will not get research grants, promotion, and/or tenure if they honestly report what they observe.

    For example NASA, the Swiss National Science Foundation, the Australian National University, and the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development paid for this misinformation about “interstellar” grains in meteorites: http://www.scienceblog.com/cms/meteorite-grains-divulge-earths-cosmic-roots-22234.html#comment-50070

    The international alliance that promotes global warming also promotes misinformation about the Sun’s origin, composition and source of energy [Repulsive interactions between neutrons – an empirical fact that DOE chooses to ignore].

    Evidence of neutron repulsion as an energy source is available here: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/neutron_repulsion/join

    To understand “modern” science, read George Orwell’s book 1984. A synopsis is available web:

    [Reply]- Oliver, It’s a pleasure to have you visit and comment here on my blog. Your insight is helpful. Cheers. D.Alan-
