Shock News!!! Some Climate Scientists Lie About Earth’s Sensitivity!!!!

 

For anyone who hasn’t been following the goings on at WUWT, we have a nice quote from noted warmist climate scientist James Annan.

He’s got it up on his own blog here… (it’s an interesting read)

The list of pollees in the Zickfeld paper are largely the self-same people responsible for the largely bogus analyses that I’ve criticised over recent years, and which even if they were valid then, are certainly outdated now. Interestingly, one of them stated quite openly in a meeting I attended a few years ago that he deliberately lied in these sort of elicitation exercises (i.e. exaggerating the probability of high sensitivity) in order to help motivate political action.

Surprised smile  I’m shocked, I tell you, shocked!  Surprised smile

    There’s lots of gems in that movie, but the shocked scene is one of the best.

    I bet there are some Quacks out there isn’t shocked and are still dubbling down in this, Now you have to wonder why? And how much it’s costing them????? I’m just speculateing of coruse, but that same speculation in the housing market did what again, and who lost and who had to be bailed out? Yeah,that’s what happens when you play with fire, if you aren’t carefull you get burnt.

    This is shocking, you’ll be telling me next that NOAA has unaccountably changed temperature records next.

  4. Latitude says:

    The first 15 years, CO2 had a huge effect on temp by jacking them up….
    ….even though CO2 levels have increased at the same rate
    the past 15 years nada, nothing

    I hate the warmest 40% increase…..the increase has been 0.01%….that’s all

    Saying a 40% increase means nothing…..if it’s not enough to get you there

    Warmest trick us into taking our eye off the ball…..CO2 increase is not it……it’s feedbacks that are supposed to cause run away global warming…..even though that has never happened before

  5. Latitude says:

    ok, this is really pathetic…..even the people that setup this picture of the pres…..don’t know what they are doing
    you aim up for skeet

    Ah I tried to answer this on Steve’s blog, but he has apparently blocked me again. His foolishness about the artic has popped up again.
    Anyway, it seems you have a quandary here. Annan is one of the leading warmists. Warmists are liars. Annan says these people talking about a 4°C doubling are lying, therefore they MUST be telling the truth.
    Annan has recently comented on dotEarth that a recent paper shows a doubling of around 2°C which is toward the lower end of the consensus position. Of course the uncertainties don’t rule out a higher number, including the 3°C that a number of people have been suggesting recently. And of course it is just one metric, and the authors are very clear to say it is tentative.

    Yes James in politically polarized issues people exaggerate in order to shift the debate in their direction. I thoroughly disaprove as does Annan, as well as most scientists that I know, including the climate scientists. The Republican primaries and presidential election showed that quite clearly this past year from every single candidate and their supporters.

      Exaggerate wasn’t the word Annan used. Call it for what it is.

      Dr Stephen Schneider said:
      “To capture the public imagination, we have to offer up some scary scenarios,
      make simplified dramatic statements and little mention of any doubts one might have. Each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective, and being honest.”
      ( in interview for “Discover” magagzine, Oct 1989)

      So, yes, for the founding father of warmist science, lying was perfectly acceptable if it furthers the goals of warmism.

      • DirkH says:

        And consider, this is what he said PUBLICLY. He publicly justified decpetion so we can only assume what he did in private. I would think it very likely that he personally encouraged building completely bogus climate models.

      • suyts says:

        I agree. If a little deception is okay publicly, then a lot of deception would be acceptable privately.

    • philjourdan says:

      “Of course the uncertainties don’t rule out a higher number,”

      They do not rule out Santa Claus either. SO I guess you still hold to the possibility he exists?

    To paraphrase “Animal Farm:” All warmists are liars, but some warmists lie more than others.
