Warmist Scientists Amuse Themselves With Rolling Stone’s “10 Dumbest Things Ever Said About Global Warming”

UPDATE: Levermann has now officially blocked me as a Twitter follower

Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research scientist Anders Levermann, a colleague of über-alarmists Stefan Rahmstorf and Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber, gleefully tweeted an article from the sex, drugs, and rock n roll lifestyle authority, Rolling Stone: The 10 Dumbest Things Ever Said About Global Warming.

PIK scientist Anders Levermann amuses himself with “The 10 Dumbest Things Ever Said About Global Warming”.

I can already see Anders and his like-minded colleagues sitting around and sophomorically having a good laugh over the “dumb skeptics”.

Does Anders really want to play this game?

Let’s just take one moment to recall some of the really dumb things warmists have claimed. Shall we make a list of the 100 dumbest things said by warmists?

Heck, one could easily find 1000 dumbest things ever said by them…and you’d still only be scratching the surface. Let’s recall some of the absurd things Hansen, Gore, Viner, Latif, Rahmstorf etc. have claimed, e.g. snowless winters, death trains, Earth’s center is 1 million degrees, warming causing cold weather, 1.8 meter sea level rise and so on.

The multitude of really dumb things said by warmists is indeed the main reason why they are getting crushed in the climate debate and need the German government’s environment ministry UBA to help them out.

If any reader wants the job of making a list and publishing it here, be my guest. Better yet, ask Anthony Watts to publish it so that 100,000 climate readers will be reminded of the mega-follies of the global warming movement.

    In a sane world, on so consequential an issue as misleading the world–indeed, miseducating whole generations of scientists–Levermann would be fired. The whole System is Broken: Incompetent Science and Insane Politics.

    The most egregious flat out lie about the future of the planet is that Levermann and his colleagues have any clue about it. That would be called predictive skill, and their models don’t have it.

    A standard reaction from Levermann: His opponents are dumb. And immoral. So shut up. And you can’t turn it back against him. Because of shut up.

    Which skill set and character would have a high chance to be employed at PIK by Schellnhuber and Rahmstorf ?

    Somebody with a good mathematics/statistics background and the desire to correct all the errors in Rahmstorf’s papers ?

    I can post at WUWT. I don’t have time to post a list of 100, but I could do a decent job for a Top 10, and I suspect a list suggested here would be close to that suggested on most skeptic sites. Counters to the SkS Top 10 would be a good source.

    Some, e.g. Viner’s comment (we don’t need to refer to the actual quote!) would deserve some similar notes by one of the Kennedys about Virgina, I wouldn’t include Gore’s “1 million degrees,” that’s not about AGW, it’s just dumb thing said.

    I’d like some from politicians, they’re both a good source and fair game. For shear volume, I’d give Hansen his comment about death trains as the winner and note some of his later comments.

    Schneider’s comment (I looked, I don’t how it was taken far out of context) about having to overhype the risk to get the public’s attention deserves to be there, with some of the similar comments from others since then for backup.

    I’d like some comment about hurricane/tropical/post-tropical/Superstorm Sandy. It could have been so much worse than it was you’d think the area hasn’t had a big storm since the 1950s.

      Schneider’s comment is definitely what he meant. The warmists scream “taken out of context” as soon as one omits a by-sentence (so much that one gets the impression they’re all leftists.). I looked for shortened and full versions of the quote.

      1. Ric Werme

        A big clue is when they complain it was taken out of context and then don’t provide the context. Sometimes (“it’s a travesty”) they provide a context and it’s how I interpreted the comment. (We don’t have decent records so we don’t know where the heat went. But we’re sure there was heat!).
