Do not interrupt the Party of Science when they’re busy demonstrating how good they are at sciencing!

“Literally”? Is Joe Biden writing the DNC’s tweets these days?

The GOP field isn’t full of “scientists” like Bernie and Hillary.

If Florida’s “sinking” the Dems might want to tell everybody where the hole is so it can be plugged.

    It’s true about the sinking. Key West is built on top of dead coral reefs. One thing about coral reefs is they do not support the weight of a small city so well.

      As a not well educated in skool old man, when I dug fossils of sea living ammonites out of a dried river bed in South Dakota, I saw first hand climate change. When I saw fossils of dinosaurs next to sub tropical plants in Colorado I saw how the climate has changed.

      Why do the Believers never talk about that?

      • Joycey

        Because they want your money. This is a con.

      • Petrucio14

        Because the climate has been 100% stable before the invention of the SUV. 97% of scientists agree, you denier you!

  • Unclassifiable

    Many centuries ago 97% of scientist thought a flat earth was the center of the universe and that the sun was pulled across the sky by a giant chariot.

    • JPT

      Those conclusions aren’t a result of science, they were promulgated by religious mythologists.

      • JohnFLob

        Why bring DWS into the conversation?

      • Joycey

        And the Bible never taught that the earth was flat.

        • Grumpy Granny

          True that, Isaiah mentions “the curve of the earth”.

        • JPT

          Does the Bible teach that Earth is not flat?

          • Fingolfin

            Why worry about what the Bible DOESN’T teach?

          • JPT

            Why ignore what the Bible doesn’t teach?

            Humans invent all sorts of Gods and scriptures. They can’t all be right. Noting which factors are confined by ancient human ignorance, helps us discern fact from myth.

      • Petrucio14

        Your conclusion applies equally to the myth of anthropogenic or anthropomorphic global warming. Pseudo-religious mythology.

        • JPT


          • Petrucio14

            Thank you so much for your intelligent and highly reasoned analysis. /sarc

      • Fingolfin

        Wrong, the flat earth theory was the result of people looking out across the horizon and seeing it as flat. It was based on the only scientific tools they had at the time.

        • JPT

          And scripture was used to underpin that ancient ignorance, just as it is continued to be used today for various issues.

          The scientific method, and its modern applications, began in the 17th century. It has taken so many centuries of human trial and error, due to the dearth of supernatural assistance of any kind, at any time.

      • Joycey

        I say why bother since it is going to melt in the south anyway.

    • Petrucio14

      There are other climactic cycles that take longer, but they are cycles after all. Warming and cooling over decades, centuries, and ages is cyclical.

  • NeoDawg

    Just to be clear – Climate Scientists are those Scientists looking for climate change research funds. The amazing thing is 3% apparently have a conscience.

    • JPT

      If climate scientists were inclined to lie for profit, wouldn’t they be going the opposite direction?

      • Joycey

        It is a sure bet since the weather changes everyday. So what is the opposite direction. Stagnation? No wind? No rain? No snow? No clouds? No heat? No ice? What is the absence of weather?

      • JohnFLob

        What the quote-unquote scientists, that are the troops in the Army of Gullible Warriors [AGW], receive is not wages or profit. it is nothing more that bribes. Where is/are the snake farm(s) that supply all the oil these alarmists are trying to sell?

        • Grumpy Granny

          government grant = bribe

      • NeoDawg

        The whole purpose in defining oneself as a ‘Climate Scientist’ is to appeal to those looking to grant funds to those who believe. That is why the specious 97% claim is like claiming 97% of atheists don’t believe there is a God – except for the obvious intent to deceive by conflating a Scientist with a Climate Scientist.

      • Petrucio14

        Who pays them to deny anthropogenic or anthropomorphic global warming? Those big bad oil companies you Liberals pretend are at the bottom of it all?

        • JPT

          Even Republican scientists and other conservatives oppose your position. Richard Cizik, former VP of the National Association of Evangelicals, was forced to resign for acknowledging what you baselessly oppose.

          Propaganda is propaganda for a reason.

          • Petrucio14

            What I baselessly oppose. That is laughable.

            Cizik’s resignation came in response to his abandonment of the mission to which he was called in favor of polemic environmentalism. He chose to be a foot soldier for global warming instead of the job for which he was paid. He is entitled to his opinion, no matter how misguided, but he is not entitled to use his position as a representative of Christians for political purposes, which it had become.

            I don”t give a rat’s ass that others embrace global warming. I have a mind of my own. I examine the evidence both for and against and I have come to the conclusion that there is far too much evidence that those who believe in anthropomorphic global warming theories are relying on faulty (and consistently falsified) data and computer models that do not match current measurements. When scientific theories don’t match the data, the theory must be adjusted; anthropomorphic global warming true believers have done the opposite and falsified the data to match their dogma. That is not science and I reject it. You are right about one thing, propaganda is involved. The anthropomorphic global warming propaganda that would greatly expand the power and scope of government at the expense of the American economy but would do nothing whatever to fix a problem that doesn’t exist.

          • JPT

            Interesting to note you disfavor Christians using their positions for political purposes. Huzzah for another brick in the wall of separation between church and state!

            So where do you rest on the spectrum of global warming denial?

            Out of curiosity: Why do you include the term anthropomorphic? Is it a misnomer added for comprehensive inclusion, or am I missing out on a clever bit of wordplay?

          • Petrucio14

            I stand nowhere in any spectrum of global warming denial. I refuse to let Liberals redefine words to mean only what they choose them to mean. Climate change is real. It is also cyclical. Nobody who looks at the evidence denies that; but climate change fanatics continually insist that those who disagree with their draconian solutions do, then accuse them of being anti-science. The only disagreement in climate change is whether or not it is man-made, and if so to what degree, and what if anything should be done about it. Personally I have seen far too much fraud on the side of those who would give our federal government and international governments the power to spend unconscionable sums on a theory that seems far too tenuous.

            Personally I would like to hear the answers to a couple of simple questions.
            1. What is the ideal temperature of the earth? It has been warmer and cooler in the past.
            2. What specific steps need to be taken to acquire that ideal temperature?
            3. What additional steps would be required to maintain that ideal temperature?
            4. What unintended consequences would those steps entail?
            5. What realistic consequences are there to continued study while we do nothing?

            I’m not interested in the apocalyptic predictions based on hysteria that we currently hear on a daily basis from Al Gore or his acolytes. I want real answers or a confession of humble ignorance. Until then, I am a skeptic on the whole subject. As far as anthropomorphic (man-made) global climate change is concerned, my default position is that it does not exist. Until I hear some convincing evidence to the contrary, I do not wish to contribute massive quantities of cash to a chimera.

          • JPT

            Well, it’s not strictly a liberal concern; you find yourself in a rapidly dwindling recalcitrant minority — fueled more by dogmatic dislike than even-handed assessment, it would seem.

            Despite the fortunes being spent by shortsighted polluters to defeat the issue, measures will be implemented and I don’t think anything will halt that. There’s always prayer, I suppose.

            I’m still at a loss as to why you use anthropomorphic as opposed to anthropogenic. I assume there’s some sort of snarky satisfaction derived, but I don’t see it.

          • Petrucio14

            Your opinion about the numbers of people who believe as I do and whether we are dwindling or growing seem to be based on the same quality of facts that you can generate about climate change. Your opinion only. Your opinion of my motives interests me not at all. You’re wrong, but you’re entitled to be as wrong as you like.

            What will be spent on this farce remains to be seen.

            Anthropomorphic indicates that human activity modifies climate change; anthropogenic indicates that humans started climate change. I would rather be exact in my terminology. The first is at least accurate, the second is idiotic. I’m not surprised that you assume snark when you don’t understand

          • JPT

            Is it your opinion that the vast majority of peer-reviewed science forming a consenses on anthropogenesis, is somehow the result of hoax or conspiracy?

            Not to suggest a direct correlation, but do you also suspect the current vast consensus acknowledging macroevolution and common descent, are also based in scientific deception? How about world-wide flood geology?

            It’s been many decades since student days, but I fail to see how the definition of anthropomorphic can be applied to global climate disruption. However, I am among a minority who think the object of a preposition should take the objective case, so why should my opinion matter?

  • Sanchez

    This is where the headwaters of the “97%” lie began.;

    Quantifying the consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature

    Among self-rated papers expressing a position on AGW, 97.2% endorsed the consensus.(of man caused)

    Read the entire Abstract. I am a barely high school graduate. I can read the plain language of this.

    “We find that 66.4% of abstracts expressed no position on AGW, 32.6%
    endorsed AGW, 0.7% rejected AGW and 0.3% were uncertain about the cause
    of global warming.”

    THEN the next line is the “Among self-rated papers expressing a position on AGW, 97.2% endorsed the consensus.” which is the only one remembered by Believers.

    And the best? Self rated papers!

    “In a second phase of this study, we invited authors to rate their own
    papers. Compared to abstract ratings, a smaller percentage of self-rated
    papers expressed no position on AGW (35.5%). Among self-rated papers
    expressing a position on AGW, 97.2% endorsed the consensus.”

  • Sanchez

    From the Cook study and the “97%” lie.


    The public perception of a scientific consensus on AGW is a necessary element in public support for climate policy (Ding et al 2011)”

    Translated? Without fooling the right number of people we lose!

  • Francisco Machado

    I was born in Florida – FDR was still president. Lived there on and off ’til early sixties. There was a big building boom after the war, accelerated a lot by the coming of air conditioning. A lot of the buildings were built at ground level. I grew up in an old house, four steps up. The old buildings, hotels, banks, west side of Biscayne Blvd, for instance, were a few steps up. More interesting (much more substantial) architecture, too. Storms around ’56, ’57 showed them why. Water was knee deep in the new haute couture department stores. Neiman Marcus flooded. Only got up to the second step at our house. Every so often, Florida goes under water. So does the Mississippi flood plain and the east coast, but people build expensive homes in areas that flood – making the result of storms more severe and getting more press. Relatives had a summer home on the Jersey shore (which they called “the shore shack”). Went inland when there were storm warnings.
