Quotable Quote...

...from Canadian Climatologist, Tim Ball, at the Frontier Centre for Public Policy, responding to claims by environuts who don't want you to hear what he has to say:

"C(laim): He is, in fact, a Geologist.
R(esponse): Apparently the same as the charge that I‘m a geographer. I was in the Geography Department because in Britain and Canada Climatology was a subset of Physical Geography. But what’s the point? Even a Geologist, is better qualified to understand climate than a Geneticist or US Vice President."

Another article from the same issue of their Newsletter:

Reformation In The ‘Church of Global Warming’?
"Nearly 50 NASA scientists and astronauts took aim at NASA’s endorsement of global warming science."
[---]
"“We feel that NASA’s advocacy of an extreme position, prior to a thorough study of the possible overwhelming impact of natural climate drivers is inappropriate,” they wrote. “At risk is damage to the exemplary reputation of NASA, NASA’s current or former scientists and employees, and even the reputation of science itself.

In their letter, the group said that thousands of years of data challenge modern-day claims that man-made carbon dioxide is causing climate change.

“With hundreds of well-known climate scientists and tens of thousands of other scientists publicly declaring their disbelief in the catastrophic forecasts, coming particularly from (NASA’s) Goddard Institute for Space Studies leadership, it is clear that the science is NOT settled.”"

"Nearly 50 NASA scientists and astronauts took aim at NASA’s endorsement of global warming science." Accompanied by the sounds of crickets chirping in the MSM.

Yup. They are participating in the climbdown, though, or perhaps offering their services might be more like it.
