‘Global warming doesn’t care about the election’: Nasa scientist warns Donald Trump over interference | The Independent

Gavin Schmidt has been producing meaningless temperature data sets in support of President Obama’s attempt to seize control of the energy supply, and now promises to resign when his work is independently analyzed by the Trump Administration.

When alarmist science departments in the U.S. start experiencing a funding squeeze and when green activists take to the streets to protest against Trump’s anti-environmental agenda, just remember this: for the last four decades the global warming industry has been almost wholly under the control of crooks, liars, troughers, and scumbags.

    Well said James.

    Seems to me that the whole edifice would crumble if a few ‘climate scientists’ were offered proection from prosecution in return for telling the truth about the scam.

    Gavin Schmitt would be a good place to start. He abandons false claims and endorses the satelite records, und-does fiddling the figures, making the past get cooler, etc.

    • Rah says:

      So you would trust Schmitt to sell out his ideology? I wouldn’t trust him with my Dog.

    • Neal S says:

      Someone else should rat out Schmitt who should be made an example of. His punishment for his crimes should be severe enough to discourage any future scientists from being similarly cavalier with the truth. Not only did he enrich himself, but he has caused untold sums to be squandered by having supported the AGW fiction. The few others most directly responsible should also be made examples of for their betrayal of us all.

  2. Rah says:

    No mercy! The louder and more they scream, the closer to the bullseye you are. Make their cries compete for space and time during every news cycle. Overwhelm them!

  3. DK Rhideat says:

    A message to so called climate scientists….

    Time to bale out boys and girls, party is almost over, hold your hands up now.

  4. DK Rhideat says:

    Yes I would expect Schmitt to sell out if the alternative is prison.

  5. Steve Case says:

    Don’t forget boys and girls, Climate Change is a $1.5 Trillion dollar industry. That’s more than enough to tie up the courts for a long time, and don’t forget who’s side the courts are usually on these days.

    A few years ago I liked to say the Good Ship Global Warming had already sunk, and what were were hearing was the twittering of the passengers and crew while they were waiting to freeze to death and sink.

    They aren’t going to go quietly into the night. Too big to fail, and too much at stake.

    • RAH says:

      What would be a grounds for a court stopping a president from replacing someone, anyone, in his administration? Besides, he could do just like Obama did at times, and tell them to go pound sand.

  6. GW says:

    Tony, this article and the links to others within it are exactly why Trump needs to be presented all the evidence of the fraud, so he can then present it to the public at large, and then confront the “scientists” for what they are and have done. I sincerely hope someone is working on this with him, because the media will crucify him over the issue if he doesn’t have the facts at his fingertips. James Hanson claimed the Bush administration was “trying to muzzle him” at the slightest hint of interference. Gavin’s already thrown down the gauntlet !

  7. Bruce D'Amours says:

    Would rather see the scumbag fired, tarred and feathered, and rode out on a rail than allow him the easy opportunity of resigning. Scumbag. Did I already say that?

  8. oeman50 says:

    Gavin, don’t let the door hit you on the a$$ on the way out.

  9. gator69 says:

    “The science doesn’t go away, the evidence doesn’t go away, just because you refuse to look at it,”

    Actually, the “science” and “evidence” went away as a result of my looking at “it”, instead of away, as I clearly saw that it was neither. As a result of all of us being forced to look at “it”, we have come to a general consensus of who really cares. Good work Gav.

    Global warm is a hard sell in Colorado today. Yesterday 75F today a blizzard.

  11. Richard Keen says:

    Re-posted from a similar story on WUWT….
    I met Gavin at a conference back in 2008 or so, and we discussed (sort of) the climate of Alaska. I had just finished a report which showed that there was NO global warming trend up there, looking at the entire period of record data (since the 1899 gold rush). His first words were “cherry picking”, which apparently is his first and only response to anything that shows he’s wrong.
    So use of all the data for the whole period of record is cherry picking, in Gavinworld.
    Such an arrogant puffball.
    Now as a “civil servant” he is warning his new boss.
    Aren’t civil service jobs to serve the country, not the servant?
    Get rid of him.

    I bet Trumper had to go to his safe place and play with play do, or option B sought advice on how to fire Gavin day one.

  13. RAH says:

    I’m going to expand on a comment I made above. I think the crap is going to hit the fan so fast and persistent when the Trump administration gets going that climate change and any changes even at the top levels in government agencies having to do with will get relatively little attention in the general press. The fact is that climate change is at or near the bottom of every list of concerns both domestically and internationally. The changes the Trump administration will make in that realm will get short shrift in the MSM because so many other issues will dominate their space and time.

    What does Trump have to lose? They will be screaming and kicking about everything he does in any sphere anyway! What are they going to do? Organize and publicize more riots? Beat up more Trump supporters? Tell us more about how stupid, racist, homophobic, misogynistic, and xenophobic that Trump supporters and those he appoints are? Scream more about how Trump is a dangerous maniac?

    Why spread it out if it isn’t necessary? Bum rush the press bums like they’ve never seen it. Keep them in the dark and let them find out what is going on when it happens and when it happens make it happen hard and fast and on every issue possible at one time so they simply can’t cover it all and set the narrative on everything as they are won’t to do. Make them prioritize the battles they will really fight based on their limited resources. Make so much happen at once that they don’t have time to get their narrative together and simply do not have time to use their Alinsky tactics on any event or person that is not deemed most critical . Make them fill their echo chamber with so much at one time that it becomes a dysfunctional incoherent mess that is a detriment and not an asset. The more they hyperventilate about the whole mass of things at the same time the better it is for us because their cred keeps sliding the more they scream.

    This will leave the general press unable to support and defend the likes of Gavin and Mann effectively. The battles over climate change will be secondary and played out in blogs and specialty publications the general public does not read or YouTube vids they don’t watch. Because they too will have to prioritize what they care the most about and Climate Change is most certainly is not one of those things.

      “What are they going to do?”

      They are going to pull out all stops, RAH. Nicholas Kristof laid down the law to Trump in The New York Times and he’s dead serious. These people are desperate and they’ll do anything:

      • Neal S says:

        So NOW they are going to start acting as if they were decent human beings? Pardon me, but I am not fooled. They will have to act convincingly decent for at least as long as they have been acting otherwise before I will even begin to think they have anything to add of value.

        And if they really are successful at acting decent, they will find that the conservatives who elected Trump, have been way ahead of them for a long time, and were acting like decent human beings before it became a cool way to react to a stunning defeat.

        If we could only develop a machine that converts hypocrisy into energy, our country would outstrip all others in energy growth.

        I hope they resort to eating tons of the stuff in the next 4 years! This is a war for the Republic and there is no room for nice guys. People that want to unnecessarily compromise. To share power as a sign of good will so they will be tolerated at the DC cocktail parties and social events. All these types must be kept out of the key positions of domestic power in the Trump administration. Kick them to the curb. We’ve been there and tried that and it is the way to disaster and domination by the socialist. The only thing they understand is power. They must be dominated.

        My favorite cartoon of all time:

    • We had the same sort of situation when Reagan was prez. The guy was tickled to allow reactor development and throttle the accursed commie, and quite effective. If the GOP were to stick to access to energy and stop helping mohammedans ban beer and weed, and STOP trying to force women to reproduce at gunpoint… Losing a few elections to libertarian spoiler votes will bring the point home nicely.

        Donald Trump Energy Policy Speech at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference, Montana

        Trump is VERY pro-energy and thinks “CAGW is bullsh1t” That is the main reason I voted for him.

        Also I liked his trade policies. RENEGOTIATING so the USA gets a fair deal.

        E.M. Smith on supposed ‘free trade deals’ that are actually Mercantilism.

        @Gail:
        Yup, that’s about right.
        The “short form” is that China is acting in a “mercantilist” manner. Mercantilism has been well understood and practiced for generations. The whole point of “Free & Fair Trade” is to stop mercantilism. What we have with China is NOT free trade. It is Mercantilism vs Open Markets, and in those cases the open market is always absorbed by the mercantilist.

        The “easy fix” is just to have a single trade policy: “Our rules of trade will reflect yours.”. Or “Generous Tit For Tat”. So China demands partners? We demand THEY put factories here… The threaten a tariff? We start tariff legislation. They back off tariffs, we back off. Etc. This is a variation on my general “Be The Mirror” philosophy of dealing with people… Or “Goose, meet Gander”…

        They go into a lot more detail, and all of that is important, but the basis is really pretty simple. NEVER EVER accept an asymmetrical deal where the other guy has an advantage.
        I regularly reviewed contracts for my departments for all sorts of ‘deals’. One of my favorite “tactics” was to just go through the whole contract and anywhere it said “The Buyer” put “both companies” and anywhere it said “The Seller” put ‘both companies’… Right Quick all sorts of crap would be taken out of the contract ;-)

        China is an asymmetrical deal merchantilist. Trump intends to make it at least a symmetrical win-win deal (if not a “USA wins”…) and Free & Fair Markets, not mercantilist vs Open Market.

        That was in response to my request he read Wall Street, Main Street, and Global Economics With a Donald Trump Victory…

        Never forget, Bill Clinton <a href="http://www.artistmarket.com/writers/piraino/clintonchina.htm"sold out the USA to China.
        He got the World Trade Organization through Congress (January 1995)
        Lifted many of the sanctions placed against China including removing the sanctions on the USTDA and materials that could be used in nuclear production. The sanctions were placed in response to the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre (unknown number dead, with some estimates in the thousands.)
        Clinton worked very hard to get China admitted to the WTO. (December 2001)

    It’s going to get messy, but the pursuit of freedom often is.

  15. Brian D says:

    Easiest thing to do is just put NASA back on mission, and close the climate department. Just have a climate division in NOAA and replace senior people there like EPA. I’m sure Trump, because he is a business man, will be looking at stream-lining where he can.

    Resign? Arrested!

  17. Tony’s graph of the divergence between fact and fantasy beginning the Y2k election loss thanks to Green spoiler votes is to my eyes the best ever. Never have I seen so many really good graphs in such a short span, and presented with such grace and artistry. Over at WUWT there was mention of “translating the founding policy documents of the next administration into Teragrams of CO2 and watts per square meter of equivalent average global radiative forcing.” That translation would make data fraud hard to produce.
