Speaking of the Global Warming hoax…

Hi Brit,

I was doing some digging into Global Warming and Climate Change and got to wondering what it takes to become a “climate scientist.”  Apparently, it’s not an actual field, but rather, now that the research funds are flowing, any field that may touch on climate is now included in the broad category of “climate scientist.”  So, if you have a degree in atmospheric dynamics, you are now a “climate scientist.”  While thinking on this, I decided to look up the degrees of the pet “climate scientists” of the IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change), you know, the stooge group for the UN that started this scheme, and, amazingly enough, in the actual report, Climate Change 2001, the contributors are only listed by last name and initials, plus where they actually work.  This, as you probably expect, made me rather suspicious, since academic types are usually all too eager to list their credentials.

Thus, I decided to work my way down the list, just to see who these “climate scientists” are.  Start at the top is usually a good strategy, so I looked up “D. L. Albritton NOAA Aeronomy Laboratory, USA.”  Ah, Doctor Albritton, famous for being the front person on the ozone hole fraud that cost the US billions of dollars for no real reason.  It would seem, in hindsight, that it was just practice for the real con, Global Warming.  Anyway, after searching through dozens and dozens of web pages, none of which bothered to give the good Doctor’s credentials beyond being a manager in NOAA, I finally found this, PROFESSIONAL EVENTS, in which we find:

In April 2004, AEES brought to Georgia Tech Dr. Daniel L. Albritton, director of the Aeronomy Laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in Boulder, Colorado. Dr. Albritton is one the world’s foremost experts on atmospheric science and in particular, global climate change. He is one of the Coordinating Lead Authors on the recent assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on the science of the climate system. The IPCC provides scientific and technical assessments of the state of understanding for governments, industry, and the public. Dr. Albritton joined the Aeronomy Laboratory in 1967 and became Director in 1986. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and a Doctor’s degree in Physics, both from the Georgia Institute of Technology. He has received numerous awards and honors for his outstanding service to NOAA, the United States, and the international scientific community. Dr. Albritton has developed a reputation as an outstanding speaker who is able to very effectively explain complex scientific processes to audiences who may not possess extensive education in the atmospheric processes (for example, members of Congress).

Well, it seems that the lead mouth piece for the Global Warming sycophants isn’t a “climate scientist” at all.  He is a Doctor of physics.  And people wonder why I’m skeptical about Global Warming?

    so many of the Global warming alarmists remind me of soothsayers, without the chicken entrails… 🙂

    Hi Iain,

    They have the chicken parts, only they name them “statistics” and “computer models.” Having written computer models myself (not for “climate scientists”) I tend to trust the entrails… 🙂

    Well spotted Grit!

    You always hear “climate scientist” referenced as if they are the last word in the matter, but you have revealed a giant chink in the armor of the global warming movement.

    Hi jestering,

    I do like your last post. Hopefully, I’ll have time to read them all soon. I’m still catching up from Christmas!

    Thanks D.A., I do what I can.

    Hi LC,

    Thanks. It’s a holdover from my childhood. I always liked poking things with a pointy stick. If you happen to stumble across anything on this subject, be sure to point me to it.

    SO, what academic primary discipline does one need to research to understand the dynamics of the atmosphere and climate? Well, I’ll be darn…it’s Physics! So, Doctor Albritton’s credentials are essential for research and management of climate studies. I am very disturbed that you are unaware of what professional training one must have to be a “climate” scientist. I suggest that you become better educated before you continue to tread beyond your depths.

    You probably don’t know what aeronomy is, do you? It’s the study of the physics and chemistry of the upper atmosphere; i.e., above the tropopause.

    And, you haven’t the slightest notion (since you are not a physicist) of why scientists measure nighttime airglow of the emissions of oxygen at wavelenghts of 557.7 and 630 nanometers? It’s to determine the temperature and the velocity of winds in the thermosphere. These measurements of the themal broadening of the emission lines over time provide valuable data about the interaction of the upper atmospheric gaseous flows from the polar regions.

    Go beyond the internet and public media mis-statement public policy summaries if you want to expand your education about climate studies.
