    Talking about intimidation of climate scientists.




    I had the privilege to interview Dr. Hayhoe this past weekend at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business, where the Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise
    was conducting a workshop and Town Hall meeting entitled "Cures for Climate Confusion".

    I wish to thank the organizers, Andy Hoffman of the Erb Institute, and the Union of Concerned Scientists, for - inexplicably - not throwing me out when I arrived uninvited to the gathering.

    Dr. Hayhoe is also talking about local impacts of global warming (climate change) and trends she has been observing.

    Climate scientists back call for sceptic thinktank to reveal backers (The Guardian, Monday 23 January 2012)


    Leading climate scientists have given their support to a Freedom of Information request seeking to disclose who is funding the Global Warming Policy Foundation, a London-based climate sceptic thinktank chaired by the former Conservative chancellor Lord Lawson.

    ...



    It has become time to shoot back. The climate change denial community is already massively abusing FOI for their agenda. Also => Climate Hackers as Cyber Terrorists, Get Popcorn. Stolen Emails Recipients Under Scrutiny and Bring UEA Email Criminals to Justice.

    A new article by Naomi Oreskes, co-author of Merchants of Doubt.

    I study the history of climate science, and my research has shown that the think tanks and institutes that deny the reality or severity of climate change, or promote distrust of climate science, do so out of self-interest, ideological conviction or both.
    • Some groups, like the fossil fuel industry, have an obvious self-interest in the continued use of fossil fuels.
    • Others fear that if we accept the reality of climate change, we will be forced to acknowledge the failures of free-market capitalism.
    • Still others worry that if we allow the government to intervene in the marketplace to stop climate change, it will lead to further expansion of government power that will threaten our broader freedoms

    Well, FOI is FOI and if the information falls within the remit of the act it should be provided. If not then it isn't. Skeptics have absolutely no trouble with that.

    But, by the by, since this is about "who is backing whom" can you tell us:


    • who are the backers of "the Request Initiative" so actively pursuing this?? and
    • who is the actual instigator of this request who is trying to hide their identity?? (since the "Request Initiative" only does this on behalf of others according to their website)



    There you go:

    Well, I'm confused by this.

    If Lawd Lawson and his Galloping Deniers Group "have no problem" with an FOI request, why did he not release the names of his funders long ago, on one of the multiple occasions he was asked to do so?

    On the way out.


    Yet agani the old adage holds. You can fool some of the people some of the time, or some of the people all of the time and even all of the people some of the time. But you can't fool all of the people all of the time.

    This is from the 99% to the Alarmist Cult numpties. Catastrophe??? Yeah, right.... Now the bottom ranked issue of concern. Rationality is like a boomerang.
