Gov. Moonbeam: Skeptics the ‘main thing to deal with’

Roger Pielke, Jr. could learn a thing or two from Jerry Brown.

The Sacramento Bee reports,

Gov. Jerry Brown railed this morning against politicians who doubt climate change, calling “political lemmings” the chief obstacle in combating global warming.

“The main thing we have to deal with in climate change is the skepticism, the denial and the cult-like behavior of the political lemmings that would take us over the cliff,” Brown said at a high-profile conference on climate change at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco…

Brown’s criticism was well-applauded at the invitation-only event.

“Ninety-seven percent of the scientists who research climate change are people who, from their own understanding of the science, are completely convinced that greenhouse gases are associated with climate change and global warming,” he said. “But when you go into the political class, then it’s a very different thing.”

Pielke Jr. recently wrote off skeptics/skepticism as irrelevant.

  1. Gov. Moonbeam has it just ass backwards. The overwhelming majority of scientists believe in caution regarding the effect of mankind on climate and it is the politicians like him that are the alarmists touting claims that have absolutely no backing in reality. But he has the microphone and the true scientists are not allowed to speak or the media refuses to listen when they do. Shut up politicians, and just observe reality for 1 year and you will see the error of your ways.

  2. Gov. Moonbeam must be a big fan of the Harold Hill character from the musical The Music Man. Gotta bill of goods to sell? You need to create a problem. Billiards (Global Warming). Whip up the public! Create Hysteria! Try to isolate any intelligent opposition (Marian). Can’t deliver on your promises you say? No problem – skip town. And like Harold Hill, “they” got caught (climategate).

    Moonbeam and his kind add a modern twist. Accuse others of being the con-artists. Deflect attention from your own behavior by accusing your opponent of being the one who’s dim-witted and anti-science. Brilliant, but utterly transparent. Hey Moonbeam! Good luck with that. I hear the townspeople are looking for you. Hope you can sing.
