If All You See…

…is coffee which will be decimated by climate change, but, that’s OK, because alcohol will be decimated as well, meaning fewer hangovers and more time to spread awareness, you might just be a Warmist

The blog of the day is Dr. Roy Spencer, with a post on the top 10 climate discoveries of 2014.

    And you still take seriously anything that old Denier-Liar says?

    What kind of real scientist would type such silliness?

    What does it say when a leading Denier “scientist” no longer discusses science?

    Speaking of religion, Spencer signed An Evangelical Declaration on Global Warming which stated

    Earth and its ecosystems – created by God’s intelligent design and infinite power and sustained by His faithful providence – are robust, resilient, self-regulating, and self-correcting.

    How can a so-called scientist dispassionately review data that is at odds with their deeply held religious beliefs? Spencer believes his God designed and sustains the Earth’s climate.

    Spencer may have been a scientist at one time, but now he’s an advocate for his religion. I guess his religion doesn’t have proscriptions against dishonesty.

    I see. In your view, can only atheists be scientists? Only athiests be economists? Politicians? Journalists? How can any jornalist “dispassionately review data” that is at odds with his or her religious belief?

    No. But a climate scientist who proclaims that God controls the climate is in the wrong line of work. It’s not Spencer’s religion that disqualifies him, it’s his bizarre ideas about climate.

    Climate scientist and evangelical Christian, Dr. Katherine Hayhoe explains it thus:

    HAYHOE: One of the biggest issues I often get asked is if God is in control, how could this happen? Or to put it another way, doesn’t the idea that humans could change climate threaten the idea of the sovereignty of God? And the answer to that is actually pretty simple. It’s free will. God gave us the brains to make good choices, and there’s consequences to the choices that we make. And that’s what climate change is. It’s a consequence to the fact that we have an industrialized society that depends on coal and oil and gas for many of our resources.

    So of course religious people can be scientists, but you can’t call yourself a geologist and believe the Earth is 6000 years old, or be a doctor that believes that God causes disease instead of germs, or a medical researcher believing that praying for someone can cure disease.

    Oh, lookie! Jeffey learned how to do ad hominem!

    Attacking someone for their religious beliefs is easier than constructing a counter-argument against climate skeptics.

    Then again, Jeffey never had a coherent argument in the first place, given his mindless repetition of the Top Ten Warmist Talking Points of the Week.
