In a Feb. 16 speech in Indonesia, Secretary of State John Kerry assailed climate-change skeptics as members of the "Flat Earth Society" for doubting the reality of catastrophic climate change. He said, "We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists" and "extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts."The only problem with the AGW scenario is that the measurements don't match the model. Two very knowledgeable scientists, Richard McNider and John Christy, take Kerry's arguments apart in the Wall Street Journal by explaining that the observations don't match the model. They present this handy little graph which shows the difference between the predictions and what we're actually seeing.
over 12 tons of carbon fuel in the atmosphere while making his predictions about carbon-based warming.
If he's willing to burn 12 tons of carbon to make a speech about global warming, I have trouble believing that it's a problem. Especially when the predictions don't come close to matching the observations.
When they start acting like it's a crisis, I'll believe it's a crisis.
