Read here and here. These two recent articles describe the insular and parochial relationships among a unique science tribal group, namely the pro-AGW alarmists. Their similar familial connections is a purposeful intention, designed to control both the science agenda and political message in regards to global warming and human CO2 emission reduction.
The end result of this form of self imposed, tribal in-breeding is climate science being lowered to even dumber and dumber levels. A recent example of this is the pro-AGW "scientists" actually pushing the laughable scientific rubbish that global warming causes more cold and more snow. An example political outcome of their in-bred science is the absolutely moronic corn ethanol agenda, which is literally causing billions to suffer a reduced quality of life, needlessly.
These two articles should be fully read to truly appreciate why climate science is not advancing, but is instead stuck on a path of continued clown science and in-bred climate change propaganda; and, btw, has so failed their tribal objectives, and is highly likely to continue to do so (thank goodness).
"What are the consequences of these sorts of dynamics? Why should we care?...A few weeks ago Roger Pielke Sr. testified before a committee of the US House of Representatives. One needs to appreciate that this meteorologist is not a climate skeptic.....In his view, though, the IPCC is fixated on carbon dioxide and plays down other important factors.....but the written version of Pielke’s testimony contains a searing accusation that the public surely has the right to hear about. In his view: The climate science assessments of the IPCC…are completed by a small subset of climate scientists…"
"Quite a list of who’s who in the CAGW world isn’t it, including such notables as Kevin “It’s a Travesty…” Trenberth, Judith “Road to Damascus” Curry, WWF’s Richard “Sponsor a leopard and help save the Amazon” Moss, Climate Central’s Heidi “Dis-bar all skeptical meteorologists” Cullen, to name a few and a postive ‘bouquet’ of NOAA Directors/Department heads’ of which “Uncle” Tom Karl (Matt, Imke and Tamara’s boss) is but one (of the less important ones)!...Now what on earth is Amy Luers doing with all these people? Well they are all ‘reviewing’ NOAA’s ‘Draft Strategic Plan for a National Climate Service’. Many of them are NOAA staff/management and members of the NOAA Climate Working Group (CWG), but why on earth have Amy Luers (Google.org), Heidi Cullen (Climate Central), Marc Levinson (JPMorgan Chase), Richard Moss (WWF) and Chris West (UK CIG) been invited?"
