Below is a fundraising email just received from Rush Holt, president of the Americans Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). As Holt notes (see highlighted section), scientists are so untrustworthy that, well, no one trusts them. JunkScience.com has been pointing out this untrustworthiness for 23 years. Unfortunately, Holt believes the way to repair the reputation of science is to enrich the AAAS so it can lobby Congress for more money for its members. Organized science has become little more than organized crime, where the science mafia steals from taxpayers to fulfill a variety of anti-science, anti-American and immoral agendas. Eisenhower warned of this problem in 1961. The only way to fix it is to get government out of science.
The estimated increase in ocean heat content during 1990-2015 is the same as that between 1921–1946, according to a study in the PNAS. Change in atmospheric CO2 was ~70 ppm (1990-2015) vs. ~10 ppm (1921-1946).
Below is this morning’s attack on EPA CASAC chair Tony Cox for allowing the American Petroleum Institute the opportunity for input on some of his research.

From BurnMoreCoal.com: “Welcome. We love coal. Beautiful clean coal. We want electric utilities to drop their foolhardy anti-coal political correctness so they can burn more coal to power our economy, raise our standard of living, secure our nation and set an example for the rest of the world. We own stock in electric utilities — whose announced shuttering of coal plants makes the Obama Clean Power Plan look mild by comparison — so we can advocate for coal as shareholders. You can help us buy stock and support our campaign for coal. You can also help out by giving us your proxy in electric utility stock you own. Check out ABOUT, MANIFESTO, ADVOCACY and PORTFOLIO to learn more about us.” We need your support!
Axios reports that President Trump’s views on climate have been shaped over the years by a “small but influential set or organizations and people,” including JunkScience.com publisher Steve Milloy, CEI’s Myron Ebell, Murray Energy’s Bob Murray, the Heartland Institute and Sen. Jim Inhofe. Axios, of course, means this as a slam. Not only is Axios wrong, but I would be proud to have played a role in shaping President Trump’s views on climate.
