Climate Change Hysteria - Some (not so) Common Sense from Bob
Professor Bob Carter does a great job here using actual scientific method to torpedo the alarmist AGW hypothesis!! Way to go Bob, I would have loved him as a prof, a true skeptic - which is a pre-requisite to being a scientist!!
I've had a few discussions lately about this climate change nonsense. We all know about it, AGW or Anthropogenic Global Warming (hysteria), it is thrown our way on a daily basis in every outlet of mainstream media. As with so many issues dealing with science the mainstream does a rather poor job of it, or good depending of course how one views it and if certain groups stand to gain alot! I really noticed this myself when in my undergrad years I noticed so many errors in reporting just on my own fields of study. I wondered if they even had a science major on staff - at the least to check obvious facts - clearly they don't, or they are getting hosed.
As with almost all issues the media presents a slanted and bias view. Rarely speaking with real researchers, but instead with politicians, celebrities or activists, all with their own agendas. That is not science, and consensus is not science either. This is more of the Big Lie, another facet of the illusion. The co-opting of what was a secular non-partisan environmental movement into partisan political divisions has taken our eyes off real pollution and problems we could fix, just as they wanted.
I hope you all enjoy Carter's presentation, he does a very good job at pointing out the major flaws in the AGW Hypothesis, one which thankfully is standing on some very shakey and cold ground right now.
