Watch this space: “Repetitive Al Gore”

For the latest readers arriving to this blog, I periodically have short descriptions of upcoming material under the “Watch this space” title. Up next, Al Gore’s new sequel to his 2006 movie is coming out very soon, and in the run-up to the event, he repeats pretty much the same message to whoever is listening, such as what we see in this weeks-old video. But one of his repetitions is not merely something he concocted for this current promotional tour. It is far older than that. It underscores once again how there is only a single highly questionable source for the ‘corrupt skeptic climate scientists’ accusation ….. but it also does nothing to alleviate the appearance that Gore and his friends perceived a need long ago to construct ancillary narratives accompanying that accusation, in order to have a complete marketing package surrounding the notion of man-caused global warming as a ‘settled science.’

Unfortunately, I’m looking at a schedule which will prevent me from getting this next post out in the following week. So, in the interim for those tuning in right now, please do scroll down the page here for my completed posts, and return the week after next to see how my new post will fill in this space.

Banishing Questions and/or Dissenting Viewpoints

Using my online platform here to have a link I can place in my main Twitter account to show who blocks me from their Twitter accounts, for what reasons. Images are from most recent to oldest, click each to enlarge; my tweets which apparently triggered the blocks are under each one. Combine this with my dissections of Ross Gelbspan’s ‘industry-corrupted skeptic climate scientists’ accusation, and it becomes ever more obvious that supporters of the global warming issue do all they can to stifle fair, open debate.

The First, Last, and Only Accusation Against Skeptics, Redux

I’m not kidding. Forget the #ExxonKnew effort to re-invigorate the otherwise 25 year-old accusation that skeptic climate scientists are paid corrupting money by fossil fuel companies to lie to the public about the certainty of catastrophic man-caused global warming. Revisit my first post on this and then look at what popped up only late last week, and the appearance that there’s only one bit of  supposedly “smoking gun” evidence supporting this accusation is impossible to miss.

Spreading the ‘Crooked Skeptic Climate Scientists’ Accusation within the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

I detailed how Ross Gelbspan is found directly in IPCC climate scientist Dr Michael Mann’s emails in my August 7, 2013 post. In two of my other posts here, I showed how IPCC Vice Chair Jean-Pascal van Ypersele had prominently accused a particular skeptic scientist of industry corruption, and how Ypersele cited Naomi Oreskes for his insinuation that the ClimateGate email leaks were the result of an effort “‘organized’ to undermine efforts to tackle global warming.” I can additionally add that the then-Chairman of the IPCC also suggested in regard to the ClimateGate email scandal, “it was entirely possible that ‘corporate interests’ had had a hand in the leak.” (full text here).

Now, let’s briefly examine one more time where the ‘crooked skeptics’ accusation was passed around. Continue reading

Teach the Collegians Well

A follow-up on my March 10, 2017 GelbspanFiles post, where I explored how college students get swept up — seemingly without question — into regurgitating global warming political tangents; specifically, the notion of ‘Big Coal & Oil’ paying skeptic climate scientists to lie. I suggest that college students don’t simply cough up this stuff out of the blue, they’re taught do so by their professors. But first, I have something of an error to admit to ….. which, unfortunately, does nothing to help either the student or professor I wrote about. Continue reading

Wow. Comment stalkers. And robot defenders of man-caused global warming?

As noted in my prior post’s opening sentence, I have comment stalkers who land at online article/blog comment sections hurling personal attacks at me in response to whatever basic comment I’ve made on the global warming issue. One in particular follows me around to specifically respond by placing a link to Desmogblog’s worthless profile of me. Now, allow me to first demonstrate it in the following funny way Continue reading

2nd Hand Smoke kills (or so we’re told), pt 1

What does that have to do with climate science? Absolutely nothing, and by God, any idiot knows breathing second-hand cigarette smoke can’t be good for you. So if anyone or any organization even remotely denies that it is at least harmful in some way, then those people are folks you want to avoid mentioning at all costs, so as not look like a fool yourself. This includes situations where those same folks dare to question the settled science of catastrophic man-caused global warming. It’s all a brilliant setup ….. but there is one eensy-beensy fatal problem here. Continue reading

Writing Congressional Hearing Rebuttal vs Being Investigated at a Congressional Hearing

It’s one thing for book author / documentary movie star Naomi Oreskes to be tapped for quotations on the state of affairs in the global warming issue — last night’s appearance on the PBS NewsHour (2:49 point here), for example. It’s quite another problematic situation when she is tapped for work by Democrat politicians. Continue reading
