Hi readers. Thanks for coming by for a read.
Michael E. Mann, Distinguished Professor of Meteorology at Pennsylvania State University is pissed. He was part of the International Entrepreneurial Academians for Climate Change report in 2007 that stuck all the participants up on pederastals by being awarded a Nobel.
Then, damned the climate did change but differently than they all said it would. Newspapers calling it a “Global Warming pause“, and similarly dangerous misinterpretations of Mann’s and his brothers in academic reputation-sharers predictions. And Mann doesn’t want anyone thinking he and his buds who have high stakes in selling man-made climate change are off the mark, just because they were somewhat wrong.
Scientific American, April 2014, Mann penned an article, “False Hope” trying to explain why the fact the debatable temperatures didn’t rise as much as expected doesn’t mean “Ohhhh shit the sky is NOT falling.”
Mann says it’s still falling, but falling in slower motion so’s a person standing underneath it is liable to think it’s surprisingly cool this spring, amazingly cold this past winter. And has actually been something of a Communist for the past 10 years for reasons Mann can’t explain scientifically. Or, I should say, support with scientific observation and evidence.
Which doesn’t stand in the way of his filling his Scientific American piece with conjectures, speculations and possible excuses the planet might have for failing to dance to the tango Mann and the Nobel Club hummed in 2007.
Not to suggest Mann and the other partisans for sky is fallingism are wrong. They might be right. They surely might be right. Even though their reasons for being right might be based on all manner of false premises.
Fact is, they bet on a horse and even though it ain’t running ahead of the others at the moment, it still might win, place or show. Because it doesn’t have a damned thing to do with what Mann thinks, or his academic entrepreneurial associates think. Or you think, or I think.
That planet and the weather is run by bigger minds than mine, yours, or Distinguished Professor Mann’s. It’s run by the Coincidence Coordinators. They love it when people are awarded Nobel Peace Prizes for shit that if it goes differently than they conjectured will have their reputations destroyed.
Same as they love putting aces-high full houses across the table from one-in-a-lifetime straight flushes.
People believe in God on a lot less evidence than the Coincidence Coordinators provide them through direct evidence everyday of their lives to encourage believing in them. But God is more of an abstraction, whereas the Coincidence Coordinators are the real item, a part of our everyday lives.
Here’s hoping for the sake of Distinguished Professor Mann and his fellow non-believers in God and the Coincidence Coordinators, both equally, that the sky goes ahead and falls in time to save their reputations.
