Like waiting for a bus, you wait ages for a "scientific organisation selling out to climate change alarmism" story, only for two to come along at once. Following on from my last post, here's another scientific institution abandoning impartiality and embracing politics, the American Meteorological Society, which has awarded its highest honour to none other than bonkers warming alarmist James Hansen (thanks to Jennifer Marohasy
). Hansen, as any fule kno
, is in charge of the highly suspect GISS surface temperature record which only a couple of months ago was discovered copying data from one month to the next
... Hansen also:
has only contempt for so-called climate change sceptics claiming they operate like tobacco scientists and he has suggested that CEOs of fossil energy companies should be tried for high crimes against humanity and nature.
So pretty well balanced, then. As Jennifer so rightly says:
It seems we live during a period where passion is valued much more than wisdom even by scientific societies.
