Leaked UN climate change report shows science not very settled

The Washington Times reports:

On June 25, 2013 President Obama, speaking at Georgetown University, derided those who denied the certainty of man-made climate change by saying, “we don’t have time for a meeting of the flat earth society.” He went on to say that “the overwhelming judgment of science, of chemistry, of physics, and millions of measurements put to rest” questions about man-made climate change.

President Obama might be surprised when he gets ahold of the most recent report on climate change from the United Nations.

  1. The image of sailors sailing off to the edge of a flat Earth and falling off was an apt metaphor as crews were decimated by scurvy on long voyages. I suspect that Columbus’ pitch was for his fast ships getting to Indea before losing too many of his crews.

  2. As far as can be proven “Flat earth” was always a strawman argument used to insult people who didn’t agree with you. Columbus didn’t believe the world was round when everyone else thought it was flat, he believed it was smaller than the prevailing belief and he was wrong. Eratosthenes calculated the circumference of the earth more than 200 years BC and it wasn’t a weird theory he was testing then. Even the bible describes the earth as a globe. His statement is actually just reusing the same tired insult that’s been thrown around since the 1700s to denigrate people who disagree with you. The only difference is that in the 1700’s the people using the insult knew it was hyperbole. Today, it shows the ignorance of anyone using it.

  3. His statement is the ultimate act of projection.
    Flat Earthers of the past were ‘bitter clingers’ that ignored new scientific observations that proved their hypotheses wrong.

  4. It amazes me that all these politicians (including Obama) who supposedly are intelligent, continue to support this whole GHG theory in the face of evidence to the contrary. Makes one believe they have a hidden agenda.
