My good friend Dr. Bill Gray passed away five months ago. He was one of the top tropical meteorologists in the world, and the person who invented modern hurricane forecasting. Fifty-eight years ago today he took his first flight into a hurricane.
Dr. Gray received money every year from NOAA for decades, until 1993 – when Al Gore became vice-president. Gore invited Dr. Gray to a global warming meeting in Washington DC. Bill politely told Gore he would be happy to attend, but did not subscribe to Gore’s beliefs about climate.
NOAA immediately cut Dr. Gray’s funding off. His forecasts were world renown for their accuracy, but because he refused to go along with Al Gore’s big money climate scam, Dr. Gray could not obtain government funding.
Dr. Gray predicted the large spike in hurricane activity around 2004/2005, but nearly had to quit his forecasting because he refused to be part of the big money climate science corruption.
Consensus is maintained in climate science by purging dissent. And Obama has taken it further by threatening to prosecute scientists who won’t play along with his signature scam. On the other hand, scientists who do play along with the Democrats’ climate scam get rich and famous, no matter how corrupt or incompetent they are.
Democrats also use Hillary Clinton style speaking fee scams as payola for academics who are are willing to push their climate fraud.
Consensus building in climate science is accomplished by purging dissenters and rewarding crooks. It has nothing to do with science.
Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled.
