Are Climate Alarmists Glassy-Eyed Cultists?

If not, then certainly mildly irritating to some people anyway. 😎

The word “cult” may be a little over the top, but whatever it is, it sure isn’t science, says The Manhattan Contrarian.

Will Happer is an eminent physicist at Princeton who has chosen (along with his colleague Freeman Dyson) to plant a flag on the skeptic side of the climate debate. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Happer on a couple of occasions.

Recently his name has been floated as a potential candidate for the position of Science Advisor to President Trump. (This is the position that has been held by eco-fanatic John Holdren during the Obama presidency.)  Although it is not final, and others remain in the running, Happer has said that he will take the position if offered.

Yesterday Happer gave an interview to the Guardian newspaper. When it came to the issue of “climate change,” Happer didn’t pull any punches.

Here is my favorite quote:
“There’s a whole area of climate so-called science that is really more like a cult,” Happer told the Guardian. “It’s like Hare Krishna or something like that. They’re glassy-eyed and they chant. It will potentially harm the image of all science.”

I would only comment that in my experience Hare Krishnas don’t takes tens of billions of dollars of government money for themselves, and don’t seek to impose energy poverty on everyone else while they themselves jet around on private jets. Other than that, Happer was spot on.

The report continues here.

    Reblogged this on Climatism and commented:
    “I would only comment that in my experience Hare Krishnas don’t [take] tens of billions of dollars of government money for themselves, and don’t seek to impose energy poverty on everyone else while they themselves jet around on private jets. Other than that, Happer was spot on.”

    THE climate quote of 2017, perhaps even 2016,15,14 and 13. !

    Gold.

    Anyways, great having the wisdom of Happer in the mix.

    By 2019, when the new LIA becomes very obvious, the CO2 Climate Cult will have become a residue of the truly mad. This process is essentially the same as the end of the 18th Century `Phlogiston Cult’.

    If there was a positive correlation between the trend lines of CO2 and global temperatures we should have seen it by now. Instead all we’re getting is fake adjustments of data to try and make it look even vaguely plausible.

    Sadly, what Erl says is NOT over the top. The vileness we have suffered for putting Physics into the AGW discussion is enough on its own to prove that. Let alone all the rest.

    [mod] this chap is Will Happer not Erl

    Hahaha I’m sure these guys were overwhelmed by the stupidity when they ventured into the world of Man Made global warming….

    It’s the proverbial house of cards, piling assertions on top of assumptions until you can’t see the wobbly ground below any more.

    The MSM has coddled the CO2 CAGW climate cult for years. They’ve published every kooky trial balloon computer simulation they’ve come up with. All are the epitome of propaganda known as fake news. My advice to all the glassy-eyed cultists–go find a real job, money for this scam is evaporating fast!!
