Do you think they’re serious yet?

Obama has scheduled a meeting with Dr. Al Gore. The powerful Nobel Prize winning mind behind the enlightened movie Inconvenient Truth. Presumably they will discuss issues related to mankind’s coming demise. Since Dr. Gore is leading the charge in cap and trade (an Obama promise) for a nominal fee, he clearly should be the visionary behind our future national policy.

It is hard to describe the warmth and comfort that comes over one when thinking of these brilliant men working together to finally address this most important issue with the intensity and clarity required. It is high time the ignorant conservatives got out of the way and let the business at hand be done.

“I will make a commitment that Al Gore will be at the table and play a central part in us figuring out how we solve this [climate change] problem,” Obama said in April.

It is unfortunate that the conservative obstructionists prevented the inevitable truth from coming out, now the costs are likely to be even higher.

Perhaps it’s not too little too late. Oh to be a fly on that wall.

The Death and Resurrection of the Hockey Stick – “The Jesus Paper”

Posted by Jeff Id on August 31, 2008

A great article on the history of the hockey stick temperature reconstruction and the great service that Steve McIntyre has done for climate science. This is a well written clear example of how climate change science is political rather than scientific.
