EPA Investigates Threats Against Global Warming Skeptic

The global warming hucksters are getting desperate. Realizing they don't have science behind them, they are resorting to thuggish intimidation:

Getting hotter

The head of the Environmental Protection Agency says he will investigate a threatening letter sent by the leader of an EPA-member group, vowing to "destroy" the career of a climate skeptic.

During a Capitol Hill hearing yesterday, Sen. James M. Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican and ranking member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, confronted EPA Administrator Stephen L. Johnson about the strongly-worded letter written July 13 by Michael T. Eckhart, president of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) that was sent to Marlo Lewis, senior fellow of the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI).

"It is my intention to destroy your career as a liar," Mr. Eckhart wrote. "If you produce one more editorial against climate change, I will launch a campaign against your professional integrity. I will call you a liar and charlatan to the Harvard community of which you and I are members. I will call you out as a man who has been bought by Corporate America. Go ahead, guy. Take me on."

What a bully and a punk. Trying to silence someone who doesn't worship the same false religion. And this is not his first offense:

In a written response sent to Inside the Beltway last week, Mr. Eckhart apologized to "all the public who were offended" by his choice of words. He said he intended his letter to be a "private communication" in the context of "personal combat and jousting."

However, this column earlier this week published another letter Mr. Eckhart sent in September to CEI President Fred Smith, saying "my children will have a lesser life because you are being paid by oil companies to spread a false story."

He said he would give CEI, which advocates "sound science," 90 days to reverse its "position" on global warming, "or I will take every action I can think of to shut you down," including filing complaints with the Internal Revenue Service "on the basis that CEI is really a lobbyist for the energy industry."

As usual the left is blind to irony, Eckhart claims the moral high ground -and thinks he can destroy other peoples' lives- simply because his victims (allegedly) receive money from oil companies.

But where does Eckhart get his money from? As usual, a simple trip to google gives the answer....

Mr. Eckhart is a member of the Clinton Global Initiative. He also works through Solar International Management, Inc. on the financing of solar energy (SolarBank), and on the development of a new international debt security called Global Development Bonds (GDB) for the financing of sustainable development in the developing countries.

Of course Eckhart wants the global warming scam to continue, he has millions of dollars riding on it. He whines about others (allegedly) being funded by oil companies but he has a vested interest in bad science.

So he's a bully, a thug AND a hypocrite.

If ACORE wants to retain any credibility, they'd do well to send Eckhart packing.

UPDATE: It seems the thug has tried to defend himself in a blog post. At least one reader reports that any comments critical of him get deleted. Not completely surprising since this guy seems to like silencing people he doesn't agree with. Perhaps I'll wander over and see how long my comments last... You're welcome to do the same.

On a more amusing note he proposes settling the science behind global warming by internet poll. Add "loon" to his list of titles.

...which, as we keep finding out, it seems to be.

On the other hand, as shown above, much of the "science" behind GW theory is based on coercion, not actual science-type stuff.

Look, for example, at the temperature "rises" we've seen over the last couple of decades. Someone finally went and looked at the temperature-monitoring stations, and found that a lot of them were set up in places that biased their results. Putting a temperature monitoring system downwind of a running air conditioning system doesn't exactly make for good measurements (go outside and stand next to an external AC unit and try to figure out how this works).

Global warming may be happening, but that's not the real issue. Understanding the cause is the issue. If humanity is just along for the ride with little we can do, then there's not much political or monetary gain to be made from it.

As we can see, Eckhart had a vested interest in pushing the human caused global warming case. When others bring up a competing theory that has growing support in the scientific community, people like Eckhart try to shut them up by every means they can think of. Anyone who thinks that passes for science is confused at best.

Then, two, the second being particularly long and detailed in its criticism. Now, no comments are left!

Global Warming is a cyclical process. If you get into the nuts and bolts of all the reports, the disagreements on what is causing GW grows very much. Also, scientists have shown that Mars' climate is changing. I guess we did that also. I have noticed lately that the left is getting a little carried away with themselves. No self control. I wonder if it has to do with the last election and all those promises of change that never happened, or all the arrests and impeachments that would happen. Or maybe it is because the SCOTUS is finally conservative and will remain so for a number of years. Global Warming is being shot further down every day. ww

Paul:

CR you're a fool. The scientific community has archived "consensus" about thousands of things that where later proven wrong. That a subset of them today agree to anything is not impressive.

I don't expect reason or logic to work on you... but for everyone else, I'll explain why science *can't* be on the hucksters side.

Basically you have to believe a few things to believe GW. -- And, to make things clear, by global warming, I mean "The planet is warming because of mankind and we're all going to die" (or similar)

To believe that you have to believe basically all of these things.

1) That ~150 years of temperature readings is statistically significant on a planet roughly 4,000,000,000 years old.

2) That the measured warming in the last 30 years is both a) measured correctly AND statistically important on a planet roughly 4,000,000,000 years old.

3) That we KNOW what the optimal temperature for the planet for the maximum benefit of mankind.

4) That we are there presently.

5) That without man we would stay for forever EVEN THOUGH the planet has never had a static temperature.

6) That computer models that can't model hurricanes much better than a coin flip and can't even model THE PAST without a 300% margin of error are valid.

OK as I said, you basically need to believe all of them but the debate can be distilled further; you MUST believe one of two of them... YOU MUST believe either #2 OR #6...

That is, that the last 30 years of temps are statistically valid proving we're warming OR (not and) the models are valid.

The problem is that both of these are false.

1) 30 years of temps on a 4,000,000,000 year old planet is not even worth discussing. It's meaningless.

2) The computer models CAN'T be modeling 100 (or 400 and Mann claims) years in the future with any accuracy.

I've NEVER met a programmer who wrote computer simulations who actually believes in global warming. Simply put, the models only spit out what we tell them to. If we tell them to model that we'll get colder if C02 hits the air, the models will predict global cooling. If we tell the model that C02 will warm us, the model will predict global global warming. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Remember, the computer does not know "the right answer" the computer only does a bunch of math and tells us the result.

Consider this
Let's take a far less complicated system. Let's take a football game. Bettors look at the stats of each player, they look at stats of the coaching staff, home records, away records etc etc etc... and they place a wager.

Now many years ago, I was hired to write a program to beat the odds.. We put in every stat you can imagine. We worked on it for 2 years... We got about 52%.

--My side method of simply measuring the height of all the starters and betting on the bigger team got us about 55% BTW--

To this day, MILLIONS of dollars have been spent on computer simulations of financially important events. We can't do it.

We can't tell you what the stock market will do next week and -no- we can't even figure out who will win a simple football game with only 22 players on the field.

So CR... if you're still reading... you show me a computer model that can predict the outcome of a simple thing like a football game and I'll pay more attention to computer models that claim they can model the climate of an entire planet 400 years out.

It's bullshit. We can't do it.

From the link given in post #10

What of the one claim that we hear over and over again, that 2,000 or 2,500 of the world's top scientists endorse the IPCC position? I asked the IPCC for their names, to gauge their views. "The 2,500 or so scientists you are referring to are reviewers from countries all over the world," the IPCC Secretariat responded. "The list with their names and contacts will be attached to future IPCC publications, which will hopefully be on-line in the second half of 2007."

When (if) the names are published they will likely be asked individually by media folks to affirm their support of the IPCC's position. How many will back up the IPCC?

An IPCC reviewer does not assess the IPCC's comprehensive findings. He might only review one small part of one study that later becomes one small input to the published IPCC report. Far from endorsing the IPCC reports, some reviewers, offended at what they considered a sham review process, have demanded that the IPCC remove their names from the list of reviewers. One even threatened legal action when the IPCC refused.

Like many organizations, the IPCC is controlled by a few individuals who use the organization to amplify a single position. Many of the reviewers may have a different position and the consensus could disappear when exposed to scrutiny.

Funny think about that IPCC report, by the way. When you start asking the actual scientists listed by IPCC as endorsing catastrophic global warming, many say they only talked about one small side issue with IPCC, and that, in fact, they do NOT support what the IPCC says about the sky falling.

Science isn't done by voting. It is done by creating hypotheses, testing the predictions of the hypetheses using reproducible tests and published with complete disclosure.

Too much of AGW "science" is not up to that.

Mac Lorry Author Profile Page:

Al Gore has been trying to create a scientific consensus for human caused global warming (HCGW) since 1992, as seen in the story linked to in post #10. Al and others have certainly been successful in creating the appearance of a consensus as pointed out by CR's long list if organizations supporting the HCGW position.

However, scientists know that neither an appeal to authority nor consensus is a valid scientific argument. Neither authority nor consensus arguments can be sustained for long in the face of a future predicting theory or contrary experimental data. If the science were really settled there would be no support for experiments into a competing theory, yet the following institutions are supporting the CLOUD (Cosmics Leaving OUtdoor Droplets) experiments at CERN.

• University of Aarhus, Denmark
• University of Bergen, Norway
• California Institute of Technology, USA
• CERN, Switzerland
• Danish National Space Center, Denmark
• Finnish Meteorological Institute, Finland
• University of Helsinki, Finland
• University of Kuopio, Finland
• Lebedev Physical Institute, Russia
• University of Leeds, United Kingdom
• Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research, Leipzig, Germany

• Max-Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, Heidelberg, Germany
• Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland
• University of Reading, United Kingdom
• Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, United Kingdom
• Tampere University of Technology, Finland
• University of Vienna, Austria

Obviously, a lot of scientists don't think the science is settled. If the CLOUD experiments demonstrate that the Sun/Cosmic Ray/Cloud link is the primary driver of Earth's recent climate fluctuations, then cutting back on CO2 is likely exactly the opposite of what we should be doing. The Sun's magnetic activity is expected to enter an extended quiet period similar to that of the 1700's little ice age. Increased greenhouse gasses may be our only means of mitigating what would truly be a disaster for a world with over 6 billion people to feed.

Here's an independent definition: "An appeal to authority or argument by authority is a type of argument in logic, consisting on basing the truth value of an assertion on the authority, knowledge or position of the person asserting it." It has nothing to do with the knowledge (or lack of it) of the authority. Like the appeal to consensus, the position of an authority will change in the face or factual data.

If Dr. Einstein goes to a government and says, "I've studied phenomenon X, and there's no danger," the government will say, "Thank you, now go away."

If, on the other hand, Dr. Einstein goes to the government and says, "I've studied phenomenon X, and it's a crisis!" the government will start throwing money at him to find a "solution" to said "crisis."

Henrik Svensmark has put forward this theory three times so far, and each time he was found to guilty of data fraud. http://physicsweb.org/articles/world/20/6/8/1

Your link doesn't support your assertion that Henrik Svensmark has been found guilty of data fraud. It's just review of a book co-authored by Svensmark. The reviewer is a NASA climate modeller who has a lot to account for himself.

Here's what professor Freeman Dyson says about climate modellers "I have studied their climate models and know what they can do," Prof. Dyson says. "The models solve the equations of fluid dynamics and do a very good job of describing the fluid motions of the atmosphere and the oceans. They do a very poor job of describing the clouds, the dust, the chemistry and the biology of fields, farms and forests. They do not begin to describe the real world that we live in."

"They are full of fudge factors that are fitted to the existing climate, so the models more or less agree with the observed data. But there is no reason to believe that the same fudge factors would give the right behaviour in a world with different chemistry, for example in a world with increased CO2 in the atmosphere,"

What ya bet CERN proves him wrong for the fourth time?

The link between charged particle radiation and cloud formation has already been proven in a peer reviewed study, so it's more likely the CLOUD experiments will prove the climate modellers wrong with REAL experimental data. The so-called consensus would then evaporate like the morning mist.

So anyway, did I mention the 18 institutions and universities that don't agree that the science is settled and are supporting the CLOUD experiments at CERN?

Because we all know, Michael-my-boy, that threatening to destroy someone else's career simply because they happen to disagree with you will automatically make you right. Of course it will.

"Questions have been raised, according to a February 14, 2005 article in The Wall Street Journal, about the significance of methodological flaws and data errors in your studies of the historical record of temperatures and climate change. We understand that these studies of temperature proxy records (tree rings, ice cores, corals, etc.) formed the basis for a new finding in the 2001 United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Third Assessment Report (TAR). This finding - that the increase in 20th century northern hemisphere temperatures is 'likely to have been the largest of any century during the past 1,000 years' and that the '1990s was the warmest decade and 1998 the warmest year' - has since been referenced widely and has become a prominent feature of the public debate surrounding climate change policy." The letter goes on: "However, in recent peer-reviewed articles in Science, Geophysical Research Letters, and Energy & Environment, researchers question the results of this work." It then states: "The concerns surrounding these studies reflect upon the quality and transparency of federally funded research and of the IPCC review process - two matters of particular interest to the Committee."

NASA chief Michael D. Griffin made the following comments on National
Public Radio
May 31, 2007

I have no doubt that global -- that a trend of global warming exists, I am not sure that it is fair to say that it is a problem we must wrestle with.

To assume that it is a problem is to assume that the state of Earth's climate today is the optimal climate, the best climate that we could have or ever have had, and that we need to take steps to make sure that it doesn't change.

First of all, I don't think it's within the power of human beings to assure that the climate does not change, as millions of years of history have shown," he continued. "And second of all, I guess I would ask which human beings -- where and when -- are to be accorded the privilege of deciding that this particular climate that we have right here today, right now is the best climate for all other human beings. I think that's a rather arrogant position for people to take.

Griffin's point that we don't know if "Earth's climate today is the optimal climate" is logically valid. Regardless of his well reasoned argument he quickly found out that questioning the global warming dogma is risky business and started doing damage control the same day per this Fox News report.

RicardoVerde:

Basically AGW proponents have two things in their court: An acknowledged empirical relationship between CO2 concentration and temperature, and computer models. I agree that an increase in CO2 should increase the average temperature about the planet, but the data only shows this to be 0.2-0.3C over the last hundred years or so. The runaway doomsday scenarios only come from the models and the models "assume" positive feedback from other sources to cause the runaway. The models are built and calibrated against past warming trends (when you back them up, they match the average temperature history). One of the big concerns with the local site conditions of USHCN temperature stations (asphalt, air conditioners, rooftops, etc.) is that, taken as a composite, they give a decidedly upward bias. Computer models validated against this biased trend would themselves produce upwardly biased predictions/trends. It is very possible that we are being asked to turn over our economies and lives to governmental entities based upon warming that is not even real.

But again, nobody else on this thread has done what you did.

You came here and made (from memory) 4 consecutive posts that where simple cut/pastes from other sites.

I asked you to stop.

You made several more.

I asked you to stop again.

You made several more then started posting whole articles in the comments thread. In addition to copyright issues, there is a saying in the blogosphere. GET YOUR OWN BLOG.

If you want to start posting whole articles, go to blogger or any other free services and start up your own blog. You're not welcome to try to turn this into your own (copyright infringing) blog.

If you say I just don't like debate, either you're new here or not too smart. Look down about 6 or 8 posts and read that thread.

Now, I don't know you yet. If you have a brain, you will be engaged. If you're an idiot, you'll be allowed a platform but be largely ignored by me.

You might notice that while Mac and I "agree" on things I don't actually talk to him that much. I actually do most of my talking to people who disagree with me.

So far, you're not in that league.

Now lets cut the bullshit, Paul, you deleted those posts because you know they make you look bad in the debate. For example you deleted posts where I destroyed your tortured logic without posting anyhting.

My last post to Lorry which you removed, was an article that demonstrated that incredibly silly idea of hers was in fact already rejected by the scientifc community. Plus she made claims about what parts have succeeded in tests without citing them (as did you) that is plagersm. So you can knock off your act you are fooling no reasonably minded people.


Oh and one final point you are acting as you are somewhat noble in not banning me. We both know the real reason you haven't though. When you look at my account you see me coming in from too many IP addresses. You know you couldn't do it if you wanted to. So lets not pretend like you are being nice.

I see it's too late to respond to CR's assertion that I plagiarized something (he didn't specify). I do copy excerpts from other places, but never the entire content and I try to link to the source unless that link has already been provided in the thread by myself or others.

Definition of plagiarize from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary is to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own : use (another's production) without crediting the source

As long as the source is cited it's not Plagiarism. Plagiarism is an ethical violation, not a legal violation. Copyright is an entirely different matter. Citing the source of material is irrelevant for the purposes of determining Copyright infringement, but the law includes the doctrine of "fair use", which I'm well aware of and practice. If I slip up or push the fair use doctrine to an uncomfortable level then I fully support Kevin or the author of a piece deleting my comments. I view it as a safety valve to keep things above board in the heat of a discussion.

CR,

My last post to Lorry which you removed, was an article that demonstrated that incredibly silly idea of hers was in fact already rejected by the scientifc community.

First, it's his (I understand the confusion, however) and saying it's an incredibly silly idea is just your opinion and one not shared by the scientists at CERN. Svensmark's work is disputed, not rejected. One often quoted critic is Nigel Calder who bases his criticism on the fact that there is no long term trend in cosmic ray data gathered by the neutron monitor at Climax Station in Colorado. However, that neutron monitor measure only a small part of the energy levels of cosmic rays, which span a range of over 14 orders of magnitude! The CLOUD experiments at CERN will determine which energy levels (within their accelerator's limits) are important, if any. Nigel Calder may come to regret his haste in dismissing the link based on the Climax Station data.

Plus she made claims about what parts have succeeded in tests without citing them (as did you) that is plagersm.

It's not plagiarism to say a study established some link unless I claim that work as my own. You continue to make simple errors in logic, which is no doubt why you're so impressed with the appeal to authority. It doesn't require any critical thinking on your part.

Mac Lorry Author Profile Page:

Kim,

I got through a first pass of the paper you linked to. Falsification Of The Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Effects Within The Frame Of Physics by Gerhard Gerlich and Ralf D. Tscheuschner. They are not the first to claim there's no basis in physics for the so-called greenhouse effect. They point out that "Re-emission is not reflection and can in no way heat up the ground-level air against the actual heatflow without mechanical work." And that the flow of heat from a colder atmosphere to a warmer ground violates the second law of thermodynamics. If there's no scientific basis for the so-called greenhouse effect then all the computer models are wrong. Furthermore, Gerlich and Tscheuschner argue that no computer model based on real world physics is likely possible even in the far future. This is their summary:

In summary, there is no atmospheric greenhouse effect, in particular CO2-greenhouse effect, in theoretical physics and engineering thermodynamics. Thus it is illegitimate to deduce predictions which provide a consulting solution for economics and intergovernmental policy.

I also like this statement: "Scientific consensus is scientific nonsense."

A quick search shows the authors are already under attack by the global warming crowed. Also, unless such a paper is published in a peer reviews journal it's not likely to get any official attention. I don't know if it's been accepted for such publication or not. If it is, there are now enough people concerned over the issue to prevent this paper from being ignored. The computer model supporters are going to have to address the fundamental physics. If they can't defend their physics the global warming industry will have it's foundation pulled from under it.

I tend to agree that peer reviewed doesn't mean sound and well founded. What being published in a peer reviewed journal does impart is standing within the scientific community. You'll note that mantis tends to dismiss studies that don't have such standing and he's not alone.

The editors of such journals act in the role of gatekeepers and have been known to filter out unpopular ideas. That would be too bad in the case of the paper Kim linked because it seems to be very well thought out.
