The Fact Challenged Dr. Richard Somerville: Congressional Testimony On Climate Science Riddled With Bogosity
Read here. When a green-lobbyist climate scientist provides Congressional testimony, it's his/her unique opportunity to make impressive alarmist claims for the cameras.
Most gore-green scientists would not waste this type opportunity by presenting scientific truth, especially when the empirical evidence does not match the desired scary story. And Dr. Richard Somerville was no exception when giving his March 8, 2011 testimony.
The above linked-to analysis of Somerville's testimony is eye-opening to say the least. The man is definitely a gore-green, global warmist shill who won't even speak factually about the actual global temperature trends, let alone climate change. Case in point:

Scientist Paul C. Knappenberger examined the actual temperature trends (chart to left) versus the IPCC predictions that Dr. Somerville only spoke to. Clearly, Knappenberger's analysis reveals Somerville's misleading testimony in regards to global temperature trends - it's not "global warming" any longer.
Simply put, Somerville chose to mislead by a convenient act of omission - namely, speaking to simulated IPCC temperature predictions instead of revealing actual, recent temperature trends.
BTW, there is a single truth that Somerville did exhibit during his testimony: an instinctive survival reaction shared by all gore-green scientists that necessitates avoidance of empirical climate evidence at all costs.
