A list of the fake skeptics
- View SourceHere is a partial list of the so called leading skeptics. (I think
of them as paid cynics). What I want you to notice is there isn't a
one of these people with the right background to understand the
fundamental electrical and biological nature of cloud behaviorand
so they continue to couple that which is uncoupled, argue straw men
about CO2 as a green house gas when CO2 is about decidedly
electrical and biological factors. The GHG warmers, of course, miss
it for the clouds and the correlations, which is really explained by
electrical changes that CO2 from fossil fuel brings about, but they
have no real skepticism to feedback on their wrong positions:
Dr. Tim Patterson
Dr. Tim Patterson is Professor of Geology at Carleton University in
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He received both a B.Sc. in Biology (1980)
and a B.A. in Geology (1983) from Dalhousie University, Halifax,
N.S. and a Ph.D. in Geology from the University of California at Los
Angeles (UCLA) in 1986 with Dr. Helen Tappan Loeblich and late Dr.
Alfred R. Loeblich. After brief stints at the University of Southern
California and University of California at Berkeley he joined
Carleton University in 1988.
He is Canadian leader of the International Geological Correlation
Program Project 437 "Coastal Environmental Changes during Sea-Level
Highstands in the late Quaternary" and is Principal Investigator of
a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council Strategic
Project studying the effect of past climate change (on scales
varying from seasonal to millennia) on fish populations that are
important to the North American west coast fishing industry.
Other areas of research interest include the use of foraminifera to
identify neotectonic and paleoceanographic phenomena on the west
coast of Canada, the further development of arcellacea as a new
class of paleolimnological indicators, and to determine whether the
methods of non-linear dynamics are applicable in the study of
EMF background? No. Biology? Yes but more paleo/chemistry in the
sense that he would miss key gaia concepts from reductionism away
from basic feedback functional concepts. Sad.
Dr. Tim Ball
Earlier PhDs in climatology
Because of his age and the age of his education, certainly there is
no genetic based biology or EMFs in his background.
Dr. Fred Singer
Singer did his undergraduate work in electrical engineering at Ohio
State University and holds a Ph.D. in physics from Princeton
Nice background for work for a power company--but no biology. No
meteorology or climatology for understanding or studying cloud
behavior in relation to the EMF training he does have.
Dr. Pat Michaels
Michaels is the Virginia State Climatologist and is a university
professor at the University of Virginia, where his offerings have
included a class on the environment, science and politics. He came
to the University of Virginia from the University of Wisconsin
(Madison), where he studied under climatologist Reid A. Bryson and
received a Ph.D. in Ecological Climatology in 1979. Michaels earlier
received a BS in Biological Sciences (1971) and a Masters in Plant
Ecology (1975) from the University of Chicago.
While there is evidence of the fact that Dr. Michaels is on the take
from big fossil fuel interests and therefore from the start his bias
makes him a worthless read, just his education explains it. He has
bio to the extent that he knows that greenery improves w/ more CO2
BUT not enough biology to know that this increase in greenery
increases microbrial actrivity and hence increases the containment
of chemistry that would increase conductivity and hence impact
climate. He also has no EMF background.
Dr. Theodor Landscheidt
Solar/climate researcher Schroeter Institute for Research in Cycles
of Solar Activity Klammerfelsweg 5, 93449 Waldmuenchen, Germany
This guy uses statistics well, and is a student of the solar output.
That's about it. But he doesn't study the sun for EMFs nor does he
have any biology in his background. This is the scientist behind the
internet's climate debate cynic king--John Daly.
Dr. Roy Spencer
Dr. Roy W. Spencer received his B.S. in Atmospheric Sciences from
the University of Michigan in 1978 and his M.S. and Ph.D. in
Meteorology from the University of Wisconsin in 1980 and 1982. He
then continued at the U. of Wisconsin through 1984 in the Space
Science and Engineering Center as a research scientist. In his
current position at the Earth System Science Center of the
University of Alabama in Huntsville Dr. Spencer serves as Principal
Investigator on the Global Precipitation Studies with Nimbus-7 and
EMF background? No. Biology? No.
Dr. Madhav Khandekar
Dr. Madhav L Khandekar, a former research scientist with Environment
Canada, holds a PhD in meteorology and has worked in the fields of
climatology, meteorology and oceanography for over 45 years.
Another really old scholar clearly w/out DNA based genetic biology
or EMF training. As the action is above in the clouds, while coupled
to the oceans, looking at the oceans or ambient winds isn't going to
tell you how the system electrically couples or how the biosphere
modulates this process.
Dr. Fred Michel
Dr. Michel is actively researching:
Environmental isotope and geochemical studies of groundwater and
permafrost throughout the Canadian and Russian Arctic
Groundwater investigation of geothermal systems in Canada
Application of groundwater in mineral exploration and heat pump
Indicators in resource hydrogeology studies
Analysis of aquifer test data
Earth sciences typeagain, little if any biology, and certainly no
understanding of EMFs.
Dr. Howard C. Hayden
Emeritus Professor of Physics
University of Connecticut
(32 years at UConn)
Research Interests: ionic & atomic collisions; charge transfer,
ionization, energy loss, energy-level crossings, ion-surface
collisions, ion implantation, relativity considerations,
(including the most sensitive Trouton-Noble experiment ever
performed), energy for society (fossil fuels, nuclear, hydro, wind,
biomass, photovoltaics, solar heating, ...)
I think what happens to people like this guy, is even though he has
the physics to understand the EMFs, he is a chaos idiot by training
and can't understand what I call bio math or the modulation of
chaotic feedbacks. So he focuses on the energy side of the climate
debate, and trusts the strawmanthat CO2 is not a significant
forcing as a GHG (it's not) ignoring his own assumption relating to
the fact that CO2 has EMF meaning in our ecology. In short, this guy
misses because mostly for a lack of biology in his training.
Dr. J. Terry Rogers
Completely w/out a clue on EMFs and bio modulation of them. This guy
is a mechanical engineerthe kind that makes cars. Also older. He
understands the heat dynamics of CO2 as a GHG and realizes CO2 is
not a significant forcing as a GHG. I have found people with his
background politically and scientifically the most ignorant about
the topic. Perhaps many years of the bad science of CO2 as a GHG has
caused poor critical thinking skills relative to other ways in which
CO2 acts on the cloud processes . . .
Dr. Willie Soon
(1) Estimating the changes in the near-Earth environment's spectral
and particle energy distributions caused by the Sun's activity and
their impacts on Earth's climate.
Dr. Roger Pocklington
Oceanographeragain, lacks EMF and bio training.
Dr. Sallie Baliunas
M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in astrophysics from Harvard University. She
is co-host of the Web site www.TechCentralStation.com, a senior
scientist and chair of the Science Advisory Board at the George C.
Marshall Institute, and past contributing editor to World Climate
Report. Her awards include the Newton-Lacy-Pierce Prize of the
American Astronomical Society, the Petr Beckmann Awards for
Scientific Freedom, and the Bok Prize from Harvard University. The
author of over 200 scientific articles, Dr. Baliunas served as
technical consultant for a science-fiction television series, Gene
Roddenberry's Earth Final Conflict.
This is a prime example of a thermal, chaos idiot. Physics gives a
theoretical basis to understand EMFs, but in real life it is not
applied in the work and papers on the sun's radiation output
dynamics. There is no cloud dynamic background, and certainly has
no biology education. In short, this is a dangerous red herring who
makes speaking engagements at Republican fundraisers.

Dr. Willie Soon
Astrophysicist - Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics -
specialist in understanding the Sun/climate connection.
Yep. No bio or EMF training. Another sun expert without knowing
what matters to clouds.
Dr. John Christy
Professor and Director, Earth System Science Center at the
University of Alabama. PhD as a Climatologist. No EMF or boi
training whatsoever. Interestingly, he DOES have a M.Div, which
qualifies him to be a moral majority right wing nut, but he has a
particular brand of chaos/thermal idiocy that qualifies him to speak
for the whores in Congress. Perhaps a low point in false morality
as we avoid the stewardship that the Bible actually talks about
respecting the planet.
Dr. Chris Essex
Professor of Applied Mathematics, University of Western Ontario
focuses on underlying physics/math to the complex climate systems.
This guy completely lacks EMF and biology and of even more interest
to me is even his email address uses the word `thermos'. Again,
heat and climate are NOT coupled. This guy probably focused his
math reductively, and has no idea how biological math works with
modulating variables from chaotic inputs. Very scary, this kind of
Dr. Roger Peilke
Professor and Colorado State Climatologist; Current President of the
American Association of State Climatologists
B.A., Mathematics, Towson State College, 1968
M.S., Ph.D., Meteorology, Pennsylvania State University, 1969, 1973
Look Ma, no EMF or bio training here! What did you expect, someone
who wouldn't COUPLE climate to thermal factors? Dumb and Dumberer.
Dr. William M. Gray
Ph.D., 1964, University of Chicago, Geophysical Sciences
M.S., 1959, University of Chicago, Meteorology
Oops. Just correlative stats that coupled that which isn't
coupled. Now retiring (yahooooo). No bio or EMF training.
No EMF or bio training whatsoever. Another politically active
meteorologist who doesn't even know what drives what he studies
thermallyEMFs and the biosphere.
Dr. Keith and Sherwood Idso
The Idso brothers are biologists. No EMF training. This is a
leading internet propaganda site funded by big coal/oil interests.
Need I say more? I will, their panel of advisors have no EMF
training and, more, there are industry energy talking heads.
Better, the bio backgrounds, which forms the basis of the strawmen
tactic of saying that CO2 is a flora loving gas, are all experts of
complex biology, not microbrial life, where all the electrical
conductivity containment issues arise. This is rationalizing
selfish behavior false skepticism cynicism at its worse. Someone
should sue these yahoos for fraud on genocide.

No bio or EMF training.
Dr. Robert Balling
Director - Office of Climatology, Arizona State University
Fossil fuels made a huge contribution to ASU's climatology
department. Balling heads it. Go figure. This climatologist has
no EMF or bio training. But he argues a good book or two of
strawmen. Such a liar should have been a lawyer.
Dr. Richard P. Lindzen
(Ph.D., '64, S.M., '61, A.B., '60, Harvard University)
RWN gave "lessons" to Bush on climate before Kyoto scrapped. No EMF
or bio training. Iris paper, however, is best data to show
induction of large scale low freq EMF on cirrus behavior in a
depleted biosphere setting.
