Al doesn’t get it

In response to the Heartland billboard, Al Gore’s Climate Reality Fantasy Project has made its own billboard.

While not as offensive like Heartland’s, the logical fallacy employed is equally misguided. Climate Depot deconstructs this warmist line about the academies of science, which we hear all too often from our own politicians.

Only two dozen or so governing board members of the academies of sciences votes on bland UN IPCC like statements. The governing boards are steeped in funding and the state sponsored science of the day. The full membership, ie., the rank and file scientists, do not get to vote on this statement and in many cases are completely unaware any such warmist statement has been released to the public by the governing board.

Many science organizations have been under munity by their skeptical rank-and-file member scientists for such warmist statements. See: Climate Revolt: World’s Largest Science Group ‘Startled’ By Outpouring of Scientists Rejecting Man-Made Climate Fears! Clamor for Editor to Be Removed!

That throws out what was already a fallacious argument, but of course, the billboard was lacking in logic and reason from the beginning. Part of the reason skeptics are having the success were are enjoying is the rise of the internet and the skeptical domination of the blogosphere. It is here that the fearmongering of the mainstream media is derided, their lack of evidence brought to light and their inadequate tactics exposed. We know that an appeal to authority has no meaning, and recognise Al Gore’s attempt to intimidate us into acceptance for what it is. Gore knows that his side is losing, but persists with the same approach that we are now immune to.

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?

    The only way Gore can get attention is to get a piggyback from skeptics.

    It’s a bit like when Gavin Schmidt gets excited over at RC when there is the occasional spike in traffic to the website, only to discover it all came from an influx of skeptics from a linked article on WUWT or Climate Depot.
