Seems every time scientists improve their data collection, the situation gets worse. They under stated the rate at which polar ice is melting. They under stated the condition of the ice cap covering Greenland. They under stated the effect of the melting of the permafrost all across Canada and Siberia.

 

Republicans use this to claim the science is flawed and must be rejected and we do not need to do anything that might inconvenience the rich or BigCarbon.

 

Will people remember who prevented us from acting while we still had a chance when the change becomes unstoppable and undeniable? Hope so.

What’s interesting is even She’ll or Exxon is suddenly interested in methane releases into the atmosphere.

 

Now that this report has been released.

   Hilariously, the RW push the idea that if one is ever part of a group, that that gives them some authority in the field, regardless that the person has never published in 30+ years.    If as the RW say, he is an expert, then should not they rely on current information rather than to rely entirely on what they learned in college in the late 60's early 70's.    

     He appears to be more of a lobbyist that a scientist - but the RW have few if any real scientists whose body of science has not been debunked.   

     These deniers are similar to the anti-vaxxers, who stay stuck on a position even after the author of the original information has been denounced and more recent studies debunk the theory of one gent.  

      Small minds reject new theories, it is the RW way , or at least the way that the propaganda channel (Fox)  sells their nonsense to the weak minded listeners.

Republicans consider Climate Change to be a political brickbat to throw at Al Gore using the most absurd collection of pseudo-science since perpetual motion machines. Their notions range from pathetic to quixotic, but no matter how absurd, GOPers support them because if they admit the Truth, they'll have to help stopping production of those greenhouse gasses and that will hurt profits of the GOPerLords AND raise taxes on the richest 10% of Americans so the grandchildren of all Americans can enjoy the blessings of living in a Civilized world. Being Republicans, they've even made it racist - claiming support for the Paris Accord would mean giving billions of dollars to somebody in Africa, altho who and for what is never mentioned.

 


Why would anyone bother throwing bric-brac at Al Gore?

 

And those Republicans they are so diverse in their notions, all the way from pathetic to quixotic. The left is much more focused - take the rich guys' money and spread it around and - poof, all the world's problems are solved.

Whether he was a "co-founder" or not can depend on your perception of the two organizations and their relationship. However, there is nothing about a flat world in there.

 

In any case, are his words not more important than such nit-picking?


Not until we know who paid him to say those words. Best bet: BigCarbon and the GOP.


You betcha - all those rotten Kleptz, and Plutos and Autos. And I'll betcha the Reagan tax cuts are in there someplace.

I assume you mean Moore (unsure of Hunter).

 

From Snopes:

 

What's True
Patrick Moore was an early and influential member of Greenpeace who now espouses climate-skeptic views.

 

What's False
Greenpeace does not consider Moore a co-founder of the organization, and the entity that became Greenpeace existed prior to Moore being affiliated with that group.

Moore left Greenpeace in the 80s. Also from the referenced link:

 

Moore has worked for the mining industry, the logging industry, PVC manufacturers, the nuclear industry, and in defense of biotechnology. In October 2008, Greenpeace issued a statement distancing itself from Moore, saying he “exploits long gone ties with Greenpeace to sell himself as a speaker and pro-corporate spokesperson, usually taking positions that Greenpeace opposes.”

I could care less what Moore is or was, the point is, judging by the president's tweet, Donnie clearly does his research from TV sound bites, mostly (as referenced in his tweet) through his Fox-y friends. He'll jump on the words of a former member whose words and beliefs Greenpeace currently disavows, but claim the report from 300+ scientists published by his own administration is "fake science"?

 

But I guess his base besties love this type of moronic babble.  He speaks their language.
