The Consensus Of Scientists Talking To Little Green Men From Mars

Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had.

  • Michael Crichton

Once the consensus of scientists finds a good source of funding, they never let go of it – no matter how stupid or ridiculous it is.

In 1901, Tesla was talking to Martians.

By 1907, the New York Times had determined that Martians were superior to us.

By 1909, scientists determined why Martians built their canals.

MARS CANALS FOR DRAINAGE. – German Says They Are to Prevent Floods When Pole Caps Melt.

In 1911, the New York Times was blown away by the quality of Martian engineering.

TimesMachine: August 27, 1911 –

Experts everywhere agreed.

By 1919, there was 100% consensus.

By 1920, the consensus agreed that Martians were a super race.

08 Feb 1920, Page 69 – New-York Tribune

TimesMachine: March 26, 1927 –

Scientists believed Martians were constantly signaling us.

The scam went on and on, and continues to the present.

Global warming finally did the Martians in.

But the Tesla guy wants to bring life back to Mars. He just needs a few tens of billions more of tax dollars.

Consensus science is about money and mass insanity. It has nothing to do with science.

    Classic!!! and it wasn’t even April Fools day.

  2. Frank K. says:

    Thanks Tony – a really nice presentation. Just take any of those early 20th century headlines and substitute “climate change” for “martians” and “life on Mars” and you have the modern global warming narrative.

      March is so many millions of miles farer away from the sun than earth is
      that the average temperatures are about 50 degrees celsius lower than on earth.

      But let’s consider Martians to be as stupid as Earthians:

      Miss Mars-Griff-government-payroll-Hippies protesting on one of those super hot
      Mars days(-3 degrees celsius) against martian warming
      while half of her protesting ‘save the climate’ compatriots already lying on the street-frozen to death.

      Hard to imagine that such low life intelligence exist outside of marxistic-

      Btw-i’ve read some stuff about Nicola Tesla(the guy who gave us electricity and invented the radio;not marconi) and he never ever claimed to talk to martians.
      But he left 3 very remarkable quotes:
      (besides his invention of the electrical age)

      “All that was great
      in the past was ridiculed,condemned,combatted,surpressed-
      only to emerge all the more powerfully from the struggle”

      “I don’t care that they stole my idea(just marconi stole 17 of his patents)…I care that they don’t have any of their own”

      “The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly.
      One must be sane to think clearly,
      but one can think deeply and still be quite insane”
      (which perfectly describes many problems in science)

      • Colorado Wellington says:

        I don’t mind hypotheticals but we already know that Martians are not stupid. They just pose as Hungarians.

        “They are among us but they call themselves Hungarians.”

        —Leo Szilard

        The real question is whether Martians are Marxists. I think Pope Francis knows the answer.

          OT but on another thread you asked me the brand of the dash cam I have. It’s a no name. Full HD 1080p with 120 deg.
          wide angle lens.
          4x digital zoom.
          motion detection.
          file locking.
          Built in microphone/speaker
          micro memory card up to 32 GB.
          Night vision mode using 4 LEDs.
          frame rates: 30 or 60 fps.

          Couldn’t answer before because the thing was in my truck so after another frigging trip to Chicago today I brought it home with me.

          As a side note my Rand McNally 704B GPS gave up the ghost this morning. Touch screen is shot. Stopped and used my Pilot Points to get a Rand McNally TND 740. This one updates maps automatically using WiFi instead of having to bring it home and hook it into the computer and go to the Rand McNally site to update as I did with old one.

          • RAH says:

            I quote from the “Quick Start Guide”
            “Insert micro memory card (must be class 4 or better, up to 32 GB)

            Is this what your saying I don’t need?

      • rw says:

        Telsa, the guy who gave us electricity? What about Volta? (I suspect you can find his 1800 Phil. Trans. Roy. Soc. paper on the Web.)

        • Kris J says:

          rw, Tesla had the cool factor. Volta played with frog legs

        • Kris J says:

          Seriously though, Tesla (through Westinghouse) pushed alternating current, while Edison the stubborn fool pushed high voltage direct current for large scale electrification.

          The beauty of Tesla’s approach was that you could transform voltage up and down, without which you couldn’t really have electrification on a big scale. You need 3-phase AC, which Tesla/Westinghouse had the foresight to promote

          Edison didn’t invent the light bulb, either

    Highly entertaining!

    1909 “Martian canals are for draining the melting ice caps” wins the prize.

  6. Andy DC says:

    It isn’t even a close call about any warming since the 1930’s, let alone catastrophic warming. AGW is a house of cards and a total fiction. It keeps getting more discredited with every passing day. But our totally corrupt media keeps pushing it even so. Makes “1984” look like child’s play by comparison.

    • John says:

      Mars receives about half as much light from the sun as earth but has about 500 times as much carbon dioxide per unit volume as the manmade carbon dioxide on earth or 25 times the total carbon dioxide. The average temperature on Mars is -80 degrees Farenheit.

      • richard verney says:

        Although Earth has a large atmosphere (some 200 times larger than that of Mars), if you were to remove all the non GHGs from Earth’s atmosphere, it would have a somewhat similar mass to the mass of the Martian atmosphere.

        I think that on a numerical basis, Mars has an order of magnitude more CO2 molecules than does Earth.

        95.3% of a small atmosphere is a lot more than 0.04% of a large atmosphere.

        But I think when you do the Maths it comes out at about 12 (not 25) as many molecules of CO2.

        Of course, the CO2 is more densely packed on Mars since not only are there about 12 times as many CO2 molecules, Mars is considerably smaller such that the volume occupied is less.

        This means that theoretically on Mars, it is easier for a photon emitted by a molecule of CO2 to be absorbed by another mlecule of CO2 rather than finding its way directly out to space, and yet there does not appear to be any measurable GHE on Mars. WUWT?

  7. Psalmon says:

    This is a terrific sequence…one of your best ever…You can slot in Orson Wells masterpiece War of the Worlds which aired on October 30, 1938. Brilliant.

  8. KTM says:

    So what if Martians don’t actually exist? If people believe that they do and they are a superior life form, the world will be forced to unite in harmony and peace. Is that so bad? We should take immediate and very expensive action to unite the world to deal with the very real perception of a Martian threat.

    Are you against world harmony and peace, Tony?

  9. John Madden says:

    The Jan. 20, 1901 story in which Prof. Douglas at Flagstaff told of the series of bright lights in a straight line stretching hundreds of kilometers “burning” for an hour and ten minutes reminds me a lot of the remnants of the Shoemaker comet striking Jupiter. Had Jupiter not been spinning so quickly and had the comet fragments been closer together, we might well have seen a “line” of flames. Douglas, if he wasn’t dreaming, or pointing the telescope at a distant forest fire, may have witnessed a series/group of asteroid or comet fragment strikes (or a single large strike that “splashed” across Mars, “burned” for an hour, then cooled. I believe that there are a number of double craters on the Earth and Moon, that were probably caused by a pair of gravitationally bound asteroids or comet pieces.
    The rest of the news articles, as well as Douglas’s attribution to Martian intelligent life, are made of the same BS, theory first, facts later, just like AGW. They wanted to see canals, lichen growth coloring the hemispheres in the summer, etc, so they saw it, then reported to the newspapers, no doubt seeking private capital to fund their further research. They continued to see life and to explain it until Mariner zoomed by and showed all the craters, the lack of canals, and until we finally had the instruments to determine that the poles were covered in CO2, not water ice.
    Meanwhile, I’m positive that there are creatures swimming in the seas of Europa….can I have a couple million to study them please? /sarc off

    If we built a very large flexible tube between Mars and Earth and ran the Martian air through a heat exchanger here on earth we could cool off the earth with the -80 degree Martian air. We could also use the tube for travel to Mars.

  12. John says:

    This from Caltech:
    Why is Venus so hot?
    Venus is so hot because it is surrounded by a very thick atmosphere which is about 100 times more massive than our atmosphere here on Earth. As sunlight passes through the atmosphere, it heats up the surface of Venus. Most of this heat cannot escape back into space because it is blocked by the very thick atmosphere of Venus. The heat becomes trapped and builds up to extremely high temperatures. This trapping of heat by the atmosphere is called the greenhouse effect because it is similar to how the glass in a greenhouse traps heat. The greenhouse effect on Venus causes the temperatures at its surface to reach 864 degrees Fahrenheit (462 degrees Celsius), making Venus the hottest planet in the entire Solar System! ”
    The sun is about twice as bright on Venus. A day on Venus is 116 earth days. The sulfuric acid and sulfur dioxide in the Venus atmosphere suggest much larger volcanic and seismic activity. But the high temperature on Venus is caused by the thick atmosphere. This sounds like more settled science.

    • AndyG55 says:

      “As sunlight passes through the atmosphere, it heats up the surface of Venus. ”

      NO, very little sun penetrates the Venus atmosphere to reach the surface.

      • John says:

        How far would a photon of carbon dioxide spectrum infrared radiation have to travel from the surface before it collided with a carbon dioxide molecule? My rough estimates suggest a small fraction of a centimeter. If the science is so settled, it must be known what percentage of carbon dioxide would completely block all of the outgoing radiation. I suspect that this percentage is much lower than the .o4 percent of the atmosphere that is carbon dioxide.

    • RAH says:


      Ever looked at Venus through a decent telescope? All you see is a white ball. Talk about albedo? The atmosphere of Venus has it in spades.
