I just read on the Internets that Global Warming is a Hoax!

Who Knew? $20 billion a year to the scam.

1. You are almost correct

Global warming was initiated by Bill Clinton when he created a weather/water destroying device in college. He and Hillary then used the device to pollute the air, soil, water, and the extra nuclear generator attachment has caused more tornadoes, hurricanes, mudslides etc... Fucking evil Clintons!

2. His resumé is... weird.

"I’ve worked with the University of Florida to do some amazing things . . . I’ve helped make crop yields more productive for third world countries . . . I helped create an intermetallic coating for gun barrels that dropped maintenance requirements on firearms by half . . . and I’ve helped cure diseases."

crop-yields -> He has worked in the field of biochemistry or genetics.
intermetallic coatings -> He has worked with alloys, which means he worked with engineers and/or physicists.
cure diseases -> He has worked in biology or biochemistry.

And he's been at the job for 20 years. How does one go from biology to engineering???
If you are a professional in the field, you don't. You are specialized through the lectures you took, through the books and papers you read, through your years of experience in the lab. You can't just switch to something totally new, because you have neither the detailed theoretical knowledge nor the on-hand experience. There is no career-path from biochemistry to engineering or vice versa. There. Just. Isn't.

Which leads to the conclusion that he is more of a lab-assistant who hopped from job to job.

3. That $20B "scam" would be less than 5% of the Pentagon's budget

I trust he's also all over exposing that gravy train as well...

6. That man is in no way a scientist. A scientist would have provided sources for claims.

I look at his rantings and I wait for something tangible to come up. I wait for him to come to the point. I see mysterious hints that are just left hanging in the text. I see claim after claim after claim, but never some source cited to back them up.

That's not how scientists operate, that's not how they think and that's not how a scientist would write a text.

I'm a scientist and that's what they hammer inside your mind from the very beginning: Always footnotes. Whether you give a talk or a poster-presentation or write a paper, there is one thing that always has to be there and it has to be EXACT: the references.
What are your own claims?
What have you read somewhere else?
Where have you read it?
How can I, the reader, find this document?


For example:
"As The Wall Street Journal reported, “The assertion that 97% of scientists believe that climate change is a man-made, urgent problem is a fiction.”
When further review was done, it was discovered that a mere 1% of scientists believe human activity is causing most of the climate change."

As the Wall Street Journal reported????????? Which issue??? Which journalist???
And he claims to have been a scientist for 20 years now??????????????



Ridiculous.
