Is it the Message or the Presentation
Posted by Jeff Condon on October 26, 2011
I haven’t read more than the title of this article. No time for blogging. I have read and re-read the Berkley temperature study and have a bit different of an opinion than some of my fellow ‘skeptic’ bloggers. Hopefully I’ll have time for that in the next day or two.
In the meantime, this article’s title leads to one of my favorite chicken little points of the AGW movement:
New Research Casts Doubt on Doomsday Water Shortage Predictions
By measuring the isotopes in river water, scientists have determined that mountain glaciers contribute less than thought to downstream water supplies
I wonder if the greens wonder why the 1970′s greens used to call our planet a blue marble? Green/blue, what’s the difference?
Well, seeing that the earth is about 70% covered with ocean water and that rain storms are constant, how is it that warmer Earth might somehow ‘dry’ the atmosphere and cause less fresh water to fall from the sky?
Just how stupid are we non-scientists?
Then I suppose if we’ll sit with our Abercrombe cloths, facebook and IPhones in the streets and shelter in mass produced tents and blankets to protest big companies and capitalism, the scientists may just have us intellectually beaten.
Less water from the sky though? So we’re going to thirst to death while drowning from higher oceans. That is a tough message to sell. I’m thinking if they just “communicate” better, it may work out.
