Climate Change Scam Scientist (Who Blocks Everyone) Talks Respectfully

This is Katharine Hayhoe to pretty much every skeptic who engages her in debate

Here is her in the “news”

A climate scientist talks—respectfully—to climate-change skeptics

How did you begin trying to communicate to the skeptics about climate change?

It began inadvertently. I met my husband at the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship at the University of Illinois, when we were both in graduate school. We had been married six months or so before it dawned on us that we weren’t on the same page when it came to climate change. (snip)

Back then, 17 years ago, the issue was not as politicized as it is today. And we had another advantage: we not only loved each other, but we respected each other. I knew that he was a really smart person. He knew that not only did I share his faith, I was a practical person. I wasn’t somebody who wanted to ruin the economy to save the whales.

One conversation didn’t resolve our differences overnight. But over the course of months, through exploring the evidence and the implications together, he came to agree that climate change is real and human-caused and that the impacts are serious enough to warrant taking action.

How was that conversation like the others you’ve had since with people who deny climate change?

It was my first experience of starting from a place of mutual respect and shared values. And that, I realized, is the key to success: not just then but even more so today, when climate change has become one of the most politically polarized issues in the United States.

Kinda hard to have a discussion when you block everyone who disagrees with you.

I’m not even going to get into, again, her hijacking of Christianity to push her cultish beliefs.

    Her method of dealing with skeptics is to repeat the baseless claim that they are funded by Exxon, the API, and of course the left’s #1 bogeyman the Koch Bros.

    I noticed that she claims he came around to her point of view..BUT…not a word about her moderating her point of view and understanding the way he saw things. What happened was she nagged him till he just gave up the conversation.

    Looks like she keeps the Comments turned off, which means no one can comment, not just right-wing blowhards. As a legitimate scientist, Professor Hayhoe is subjected to valid criticism with every article she writes, every paper she presents at meetings, and by other legitimate scientists who disagree with either her data or her interpretation of the data. And bloggers such as you can criticize her posts on your own blog.

    In this post you don’t offer a critique of her work, but call her a scammer and a cultist, and mock her religion. What value do you add?

  4. Jeffery says:

    What could you possibly type that would be of value?

  5. Hoss says:

    I can almost hear her husband’s disinterested agreement that “Yes honey, sure climate change is real.” Because that’s way easier than listening to her haranguing bullshit.

    • Jeffery says:

      Professor Hayhoe is a climate scientist, her husband an Evangelical minister. She probably listens to him on how many angels dance on the head of a pin, he listens to her concerning climate science.
