Barack Obama, Climate Scientist (2017-01-09). Anthony Watts’ buddy Willis Eschenbach thinks Science magazine has “beclowned” itself by publishing President Barack Obama’s climate policy paper, The irreversible momentum of clean energy.
Sez Willis, sneering at the President’s “deathless prose”, “January 20th … could you hurry up please?” Yes, all signs point to the Trump presidency as a glorious era of intelligence, respect and rational behaviour. Not to mention a flood of inspirational tweets.
Willis may mock the current President’s interest in the future economy (even though I thought we can’t afford it was a staple denialist stalling tactic since forever ago) but I’ll highlight this viciously partisan paragraph by Obama:
We have long known, on the basis of a massive scientific record, that the urgency of acting to mitigate climate change is real and cannot be ignored. In recent years, we have also seen that the economic case for action—and against inaction—is just as clear, the business case for clean energy is growing, and the trend toward a cleaner power sector can be sustained regardless of near-term federal policies.
In the meantime, try not to let your jealousy eat you from the inside out Willis-the-NOT-racist. We know that Anthony Watts and yourself are the only True Scientists with the only education that counts: a year or two of Community College for Anthony and a B.A. in Psychology for yourself.
You science-denying AGW zealots rely a lot on skepticalscience.com. It is run by an Australian cartoonist who likes to dress up in Hitler uniforms. Double standard much?
[Not sure why you are referencing something unrelated to this post. Just needed to get something off your chest I guess. Were you trying to malign Assistant Professor John Cook? However, why should I accept anything YOU say? You were once a three-year-old that didn’t even understand how to play hide and seek! (That’s how you do ad hominem, although your “science-denying AGW zealots” whopper is nice example of appeal to ignorance.) – Ben]
