Climate Science Scammers Are Totally Fighting Back Against Trump Or Something

In the runnup to the big climate march in D.C. on the 24th, which has already turned into a massive hotbed of typically Leftist memes, along with infighting about things such as “is Bill Nye the Science Guy too White?”, you can expect many more screes such as this from Union Of Concerned Scientists’ president Kenneth Kimmell

Why scientists are fighting back. We’ve had enough of Trump’s war on facts

Next Saturday, in Washington, DC, and in hundreds of rallies around the world, scientists and their supporters will stage what is likely to be the largest gathering of its kind in history. The March for Science, an idea hatched by a few enthusiastic people on Reddit, has mobilised scientists and their supporters as never before.

As a colleague observed: “You know you’re in trouble when scientists take to the streets.” He’s right. I’ve worked closely with scientists for decades and, by training and temperament, they tend to be happiest in the lab, testing and retesting experiment results – among the last groups of people you might expect to find protesting.

So, why are they grabbing placards now? Because an unprecedented attack on science, scientists and evidence-based policymaking is underway in the US federal government.

Because Trump is pulling their taxpayer sponsored funding for their failed and highly political research. That’s why.

Nowhere is the attack more ferocious than on the issue of global warming, where the Trump administration has taken a wrecking ball to the modest but important policies put in place by President Obama. First among them is the Obama administration’s signature Clean Power Plan, the nation’s first-ever limit on carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, which Trump has vowed to repeal.He has also pledged to “reopen” (which could well mean “weaken”) hard-won vehicle fuel economy standards that have already begun lowering carbon emissions and oil consumption. Meanwhile, in a tragic example of wilful blindness, Trump has abolished a rule requiring federal agencies to consider how large federal projects affect climate change and how climate impacts, such as sea level rises and drought, might affect the long-term viability of the projects themselves. This is akin to erecting a building on a fault zone without considering earthquakes.

Obama, huh?

My organisation, the Union of Concerned Scientists, with its more than 500,000 members and supporters, has joined with allies from the climate, environmental justice and labour movements to help organise both the March for Science and the People’s Climate March.

As the demonstrations are likely to show, an enormous number of people understand what is stake. The greatest attack on science in memory may wind up spurring the greatest mobilisation of scientists, and allies far and wide, we have ever seen.

Which leads to this from the official Twitter of the climateScam march

And that article is all about purchasing climate offsets, a nice little scam that allows members of the Cult of Climastrology to not practice what they preach.

Because walking the talk would be inconvenient, and, of course, this all has nothing to do with science.

    Another day, another thread of AGW unraveling …

    No need for little guy to read it… because he’s just a little guy.
    No need for Zzzz to read it either… because it deals with uncertain assumptions.

      It’s been unraveling for decades. But the religion is “settled” and the believers will never give up.
