I've seen crazier billboards then that driving up I-65 to Chicago.

My favorite so far has been:

Anti-Choice sign:
"Many women regret their decision to have an abortion..." [dead baby picture]

***half-mile down the road***

Pro-Choice sign:

Oh, sure I do. He was obviously spot-on with his global cooling hypothesis.

I am not the one who gave him the label FATHER OF CLIMATOLOGY. That came from the people who work in the field of climatology. Are you more qualified than they are?

That was an awfully nice thing for those climatologists to do for him, too, considering that he wasn't a climatologist. As for my qualifications, they're quite modest - I'm not a climatologist, either. It's just one of the many things I have in common with the FATHER OF CLIMATOLOGY!TM.

I seriously can't decide if this utter lack of self-awareness bordering on sheer delusion is an act or real.

chuckufarlie: Professor Reid Bryson (1920-2008) was the founder of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Department of Meteorology and Center for Climatic Research and was the first director of the Institute for Environmental Studies (now the Nelson Institute). Dr. Bryson was one of the pioneers of modern climatology and among the first to explore the influence of climate on humans and human culture. He gained fame for his studies of past and future climate, the relationships between climate and the biosphere, and the interaction of climate and human societies. A polymath, Bryson's scholarly interests ranged from studies of archaeology and geography to geology and limnology, and he tied them together through an abiding interest in weather and climate.


I'm sorry - I must be a little off my game today. I've read and re-read the hagiographical blurb you've so thoughtfully provided for us here, but I just can't seem to find the part where it mentions the actual training that the FATHER OF CLIMATOLOGY!TM had in, you know, climatology.

It does not make them more credible - but it does not make them LESS credible either.

Then why on earth are you harping on the fact that he was a "PROFESSOR EMERITUS"? That doesn't matter, nor does the (completely bogus) claim that he is the "FATHER OF CLIMATOLOGY".

What might make his opinion matter is if he has done some actual work in the field that supports that opinion. Can you cite some of his work that disproves the notion that mankind's activities have contributed to the rise in the average global temperature?
