mrshowrules: I think Google is broken.FlashHarry: RussianPooper: They're just trying to pad those sweet research budgets!

GRANT MONEY!

I think Google is broken because I googled "world's richest climatologist" and got zero results.


You know, I've known people in climate science, and they'd all love to find evidence that this is merely a normal cycle, and that this will correct itself on its own, and that humans are not permanently damaging the environment. The climate scientist who found credible proof of that would be lauded as a hero.

But that evidence is not there. And what is there is some scary shiat.

In other words:

"One of the penalties of an ecological education is that one lives alone in a world of wounds. Much of the damage inflicted on land is quite invisible to laymen. An ecologist must either harden his shell and make believe that the consequences of science are none of his business, or he must be the doctor who sees the marks of death in a community that believes itself well and does not want to be told otherwise."

You mean that scientists are actually UPSET when their life's work is misrepresented? How unreasonable!

RussianPooper: They're just trying to pad those sweet research budgets!

You can't pad a proposal budget, and even if you could, the results would have nothing to do with it. Money is paid for work, not getting specified results.

There certainly is privately-funded research, but it's not part of the community as such.

There USED to be plenty, but then businesses figured out they don't have to pay for their own research, they just need to use the results of research paid for with tax dollars while complaining about government spending

And those scientists just happen to all get their research grants for studying and confirming the existence of global warming. What a surprise.

You want to see someone get a huge grant? Find someone with solid evidence against man made global warming. That guy would have his career MADE.

What is going to happen regarding Climate Change is that at some point when it can not be denied, some Premillenial author is going to go back to Revelations or Daniel and find something that proves that Biblical Prophecy predicted Climate Change.

At that point the Premillenial Christians will say there is nothing we can do because it is all according to God's Plan

GAT_00: Those numbers are surprisingly low.


Yeah, my bet is that the 7% accuracy rate on Fox News was by pure accident. Someone misread something and it ended up being correct.

Well, they'll be half right - when it gets to that point there will be nothing we can do. In fact I wonder if it's not already too late.

You have to take them seriously. After all, they are concerned.
( I know, because they're all making 'that' face.)
