“Pielke Jr. on Trenberth’s Book Review“. Thin-skinned economics professor Roger Pielke Jr. is annoyed that his book about climate change, The Climate Fix: What Scientists and Politicians Won’t Tell You About Global Warming, has been poorly reviewed by a real climatologist (Dr. Kevin Trenberth). Anthony Watts, like dozens of denialist websites, encouragingly reposts Roger’s complaints. It’s kind of creepy reading Roger talk about himself in the third person.
Roger Pielke Jr., who likes to style himself an “Honest Broker” is the kind of opponent of action on Global Warming that claims to “accept the evidence” but never seems to run out of reasons why we shouldn’t do anything about… yet.
Dr. Trenberth’s review, which incidentally also discusses Hack the Planet Science’s Best Hope – or Worst Nightmare – for Averting Climate Catastrophe, is in the November 2010 issue of Science.
Pielke’s “honest broker” meme is an obvious bunch of pretzel logic.
Now that Watts’ has lost the argument about land temperature measuring stations, as well as the one about sea level measurements, he must be getting desperate.
