Michael “Robust Debate” Mann Calls For Rebellion

Michael Mann, who has previously called for robust debate, as long as the debate is one sided (he will block you in a heartbeat on Twitter), is pretty upset about climate denial not being dead

The era of climate change denial is over. Rejection of the unequivocal scientific evidence that carbon emissions from the burning of fossil fuels are warming the planet and changing our climate is no longer socially acceptable. Only the most fringe of politicians now disputes the overwhelming scientific consensus that climate change is real and human-caused, and they are largely ignored.

So why dignify the notion of climate change denial by writing about it?

If it’s over, then why are there so many who refuse to buy into anthropogenic climate change, and why are there so few Warmists who actually practice what they preach?

Such was the criticism I received from many well-meaning fellow climate scientists last fall after I published my latest book, “The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial Is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy,” co-authored with Washington Post editorial cartoonist Tom Toles.

Oh, right, he has a book to pimp.

We scientists are, in general, a reticent lot who would much rather spend our time in the lab, out in the field, teaching and doing research. It is only the most unusual of circumstances that gets us marching in the streets. Trump’s assault on science is just such a circumstance. And we are seeing a rebellion continue to mount.

A rebellion!

What are they really rebelling against? Seeing their flow of taxpayer money shut off, which would mean they’d have to go work in the private sector where people expect results.

    If this were just an academic argument, it wouldn’t matter. Everyone would be free to believe it or not and no one would care. Like the theory of evolution or the Big Bang. The problem is, this isn’t just “science”. It is wholesale fraud on an unimaginable scale designed to transfer a trillion dollars of wealth from 150 million taxpaying Americans to everyone else in the world and a few thousand Americans at the top of the food chain. This will happen through the mechanism of higher fuel prices imposed by carbon taxes and forced purchasing of carbon credits. The Kyoto treaty and similar climate agreements are all about how the USA pays to transfer wealth to the third world, Russia and China.

    And the hot debate continues around the flat Earth, evolution, ESP and bigfoot, LOL.
