And The Consensus Is…

Climate Consensus - Warmists are bad at mathClimate Consensus – Warmists Are Bad At Math

Of course, to be heartlessly fair, this a breakdown of a large swath of the scientific community. If one limited the polling to only “Climatologists,” the consensus of belief-in-detail in Anthropogenic Climate Change with CO2 emissions as the sole or primary cause is over 95%. Hence, most of the queried scientists aren’t properly certified to have or espouse an opinion, not being “Climatologists.”

Yet, to once again be heartlessly fair, Climatology is nothing be a degree in Geology with a handful of extra credit hours attached to it is a degree that was created by the Warmists themselves a decade or so ago. As it teaches the revealed truth of Global Warming as a postulate and scientific truth, of course those degree holders are in orthodox consensus; they wouldn’t be able to be published otherwise and would perish. Hence, their magisterium is invalid and unfounded upon anything but fiat.

Eppure Si Raffredda

Yeah, the Warmists are quite bad at math…and Economics, Political Science, and History – and obviously have zero understanding of even the basics of Chaos Theory. They are, however, quite good at Theater Arts and fairly good at creative Theology and Divinity.

Climate Heresy

The Magisterium of the Warmist faith have- and make great use of their Inquisition.  Woe betide the scientist who strays from orthodoxy and into climate heresy. While the Inquisitions tools are different than they were, they are no less terrifying to those who have failed to appreciate and follow the AGW doctrine as it is set forth for them.

Global Warming Heresy
The Climate Change Inquisition Brooks No Heresy

For those souls who do not accept the incontrovertible Word of Mann, there is nothing but confinement and pain until such time as the recant and return to the Global Warming flock.

I’m left wondering, however, about how many, if any, dedicated scientists muttered, “Eppure si raffredda.” after their required Auto-da-fé.

For those who don’t already know, Eppure si raffredda is Italian for “But it cools” which is a riff upon- and homage to Galileo Galilei’s utterance of, “Eppur si muove” – But yet it moves – after after his being forced to recant that the earth moves around the sun by the Inquisition.

Mendicant Magic

It’s an old axiom that a sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from magic. A corollary to this would be that a sufficiently advanced scientist is indistinguishable from a magician or other magical entity.

There are, in the latter case, ways to distinguish the scientist from the magician or other magical entity…

Yep! The only magic scientists and researchers have is mendicant magic in that many of them do seem to be able to conjure funding out of the aether…as long as they are practicing orthodox, “white magic” at least. Those following a purer path don’t do so well at all.

How Geeks & Nerds Do It

I know that long-standing pop culture tradition states that scientists, academics, and other geeks and nerds don’t have sex very often. This is, however, simply untrue. These folks do it. They just each do it in their own respective ways…

  • Astronomers do it in the dark
  • Mathematicians do it in numbers
  • Biologists do it in the field
  • Chemists do it periodically on the table
  • Geologists do it in folded beds
  • Palaeontologists do it in the dirt
  • Computer scientists do it bit by bit
  • Electrical engineers do it until it hertz
  • Physicists do it with force
  • When seismologists do it, the Earth shakes
  • Zoologists do it with animals
  • Polymer chemists do it in chains
  • Cosmologists do it with a bang
  • Theorists do it on paper
  • Geneticists do it in their genes
  • Statisticians do it with 99% confidence
  • Planetary scientists do it while gazing at Uranus
  • Philosophers only think about doing it
  • Quantum Physicists are uncertain about doing it but are sure it will cause multiple entanglements

Science\;is\;{\sqrt{1+\tan^{2}C}}

On the bright side, scientists are generally against one night stands; they want repeatable results. On the dark side, they tend to talk about their sexual exploits and partners; it’s part of the peer review process. 😉

NOTE: For those not comfortable with equations, the square root of one plus tan squared C is equal to the square root of sec squared C which is equal to sec C (= sexy).
