Scientists Disembowel Latest Green Drivel from Obama
May 20, 2014 • 9:44AM

A group of 15 scientists has issued a scathing attack on Obama's latest environmentalist hyperventilation, the 829-page National Climate Assessment (released May 6), and offer a defense of Promethean Man to boot. The opening paragraphs give a flavor of healthy sarcasm of the entire document:

"The National Climate Assessment-2014 (NCA) is a masterpiece of marketing that shows for the first time the full capabilities of the Obama Administration to spin a scientific topic as they see fit, without regard to the underlying facts. With hundreds of pages written by hundreds of captive scientists and marketing specialists, the administration presents their case for extreme climate alarm.

"As independent scientists, we know that apparent evidence of Climate Change, however scary, is not proof of anything...

"We are asked to believe that humans are drastically changing the earth's climate by burning fossil fuels. The problem with their theory is very simple: It is not true." (emphasis in the original)

What follows is an item-by-item rebuttal of five of the NCA's main points, including the claim of anthropogenic causes of warming; that recent years/decades have been warmer than past; and the error of relying on computer modelling, at one point concluding, "Our climate is highly cyclical, driven by ocean and solar cycles, not carbon dioxide."

Among the signatories are: Dr. George Wolff, who formerly chaired the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee; Joseph S. D'Aleo, a fellow with the American Meteorological Society; Dr. Neil Laverne Frank, former director of the National Hurricane Center in Florida; and William M. "Bill" Gray, emeritus professor of atmospheric science at Colorado State University.
