Pielke Saying the Truth
Posted by Jeff Id on December 4, 2009
Some don’t like that I let my political veiws show. Which do you prefer, showing or hiding.
Roger Pielke Jr. called out Mann And Schmidt on this today on their politics. My opinion is that the scientists at RC are guilty of the advocacy agenda (and it is a foolish extremist agenda) of globalism, socialism and non-elected government involvement in every aspect of our lives. These people live in a world where money comes from the government. They don’t spend even one minute of their lives worrying about being laid off or making payroll. They have never been concerned with supply of product or producing a good. They live sheltered lives where such political views can make sense. Not every professor get’s corrupted or fails to understand the outcome of these amazingly reckless policies, but many do.
You all hear from me enough, here’s Roger’s take.
I think we can get past the lie — and it was a lie — that these activist scientists, in the words of Gavin Schmidt, “are not taking a political stand.” They are indeed taking a political stand and they are doing so in stealth fashion using the authority and institutions of science as cover to do so. As the leaked CRU emails show, this group of activist scientists are firmly entrenched in the major institutions of climate science, such as the IPCC.
