California Climate Protesters Resist Reality

These “resistance” protestors are simply resisting reality and common sense.

“Approximately 5,000 activists rallied in San Diego on Saturday as part of approximately 300 coordinated sister marches across the United States to call on the Trump administration to take action on climate change.” click here

Climates Change! The charge of”climate change denial” is complete nonsense

There are legitimate disagreements over climate science and the usefulness of climate models. Scientists on all sides of any climate issue are all working from the same observational data except when governments refuse to release data as in the case of ClimateGate. Then climate science is distorted.

The climate has changed, is changing, and will change in the future.  The media mantra that so and so is just a climate change denier is complete nonsense. In this case (here) it is the EPA administrator who is being attacked. Whatever EPA does one way or the other will have no meaningful effect on how climates change. These sorts of name calling attacks occur when the name calling accuser has little to no science to back their position. At this point it’s all about protecting the institution or agency’s government funding and little to do with science.

First MIT climate program priority? Protect funding…

The MIT letter (here) objecting to the letter sent by Richard Lindzen and other scientists is a good example of what happens when government funding gets out of control. Programs such as MIT depend on it.  Dr. Lindzen has responded here.  MIT is hardly to blame as other institutions would take the very same action if major government funding depends on maintaining and advancing a particular point of view (dogma). Until science is once again the focus no meaningful progress will be made towards lasting solutions to real problems resulting from climate changes.
