The “Global Warming Consensus” house of cards is beginning to collapse…
UPDATE: There is quite a bit of fallout from this movie:
Scientists who questioned mankind’s impact on climate change have received death threats and claim to have been shunned by the scientific community.
Timothy Ball, a former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg in Canada, has received five deaths threats by email … One of the emails warned that, if he continued to speak out, he would not live to see further global warming.
“I can tolerate being called a skeptic because all scientists should be skeptics, but then they started calling us deniers, with all the connotations of the Holocaust. That is an obscenity”
Death Threats …That gives us a pretty good idea as to why Carl Wunsch is trying to distance himself from his participation in this film.
Update 1:Cox & Forkum suggest that there is also the threat of losing funding…
Poor Professor Wunsch, all he tried to do was offer a voice of reason … no good deed goes unpunished.
Dr. Wunsch is repulsed by the nature of the debate. “The science isn’t mature to the point where anyone can say with any confidence that the Greenland ice sheet will melt,” he says. “Both extremes have reduced the debate to a cartoon war, like a Batman movie.” He does not spare the camp that Mr. Durkin attacks, decrying the “hysterical” claims of alarmists, such as their warnings that global warming might shut down the Gulf Stream or propel Britain into a new ice age — these “are either scientifically impossible or so unlikely as to threaten our credibility as a scientific discipline if we proclaim their reality,” he says.
