Remember when the left vowed to “take the politics out of science”? They were just kidding.

 

IPS founders  Marcus Raskin and Richard Barnet, coiners, I kid you not, of the  defiant claim, "speaking truth to power" . Hahahahaha

“Progressive” think tank Institute for Policy Studies, fires professor after he concludes that global warming “is an unproved science.”

If one would have asked statistician Caleb Rossiter a decade ago about global warming, he says he would have given the same answer that President Barack Obama offered at a recent commencement address.

“He castigated people who don’t believe in climate catastrophe as some sort of major fools,” Rossiter says of the president’s speech, adding he would have agreed with the president – back then.

But Rossiter would give a different answer today.

“I am simply someone who became convinced that the claims of certainty about the cause of the warming and the effect of the warming were tremendously and irresponsibly overblown,” he said in an exclusive interview Tuesday with The College Fix. “I am not someone who says there wasn’t warming and it doesn’t have an effect, I just cannot figure out why so many people believe that it is a catastrophic threat to our society and to Africa.”

For this belief – based in a decade’s worth of statistical research and analysis on climate change data – Rossiter was recently terminated as an associate fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, a progressive Washington D.C. think tank.

The IPS has been a commie front since its founding in 1963 and is practically irrelevant today, but it’s notable that it should support both the communist model of silence dissenting opinions and the movement to shut down the First World’s economy. The useful idiots who are manipulated by these people and the global warming profiteers might want to ponder that coincidence.

    Typical behavior from the Progressives! “Don’t agree with us…..you’re gone!”

    Headline just rolled across the screen – US Patent and Trademark office cancels the Redskins patent. Is this headed to the supreme court or what, with a counter suit for damages?

    The US Patent and Trademark office should not be an arbiter of taste..there are other more appropriate venues.

    First, Caleb is an idiot. But you knew that all along. http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2014/06/18/nasa_may_2014_was_the_hottest_may_in_recorded_history.html
    Second, the Redsklins never had a patent.
    Third, Section 2(a) of the Trademark Act, 15 U.S.C. §1052(a), provides an absolute bar to the registration of immoral or scandalous matter.

    Other than that, the post and comments are right on. Congrats!

    • “Redskins” scandalous or immoral? Not according to the majority of redskins polled – this was a publicity stunt, pulled off because of silly white liberals and their guilt.

        Nevermind according to the meaning of the words… Redskins not really, current Administration yes both counts

      OBAMA FLUNKS HIS CLIMATE SCIENCE 101 AT UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, IRVINE

      NASA, “the organisation that put man on the moon is now in the grip of climate alarmists like Gavin Schmidt, successor to activist James “Death Trains” Hansen. In 2012, 49 former NASA astronauts and scientists wrote to protest against the anti-scientific, alarmist position being adopted by Hansen and Schmidt at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS). They wrote: “We believe the claims by NASA and GISS, that man-made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change are not substantiated, especially when considering thousands of years of empirical data.

    Please. If the facts don’t conform to the theory, they will have to be done away with.

    This guy is lucky. Soon the left will start beheading guys who have the audacity to speak their mind.
