B) his convicton has nothing to do with climate research

So?


That might not be strictly true. Some or many of the false payments were supposedly for 'scientific tests' so, if those tests were never done, that could bring into question his credibilty as a scientist, or at least the credibility of the work he was supposed to be doing.


Ergo global warming a fraud


It just a very silly straw man.

Don't try to be sly, The guy was working on climate change research, and he was faking it.
He claimed he was measuring carbon levels in core samples taken from the Reef, and pretended he was paying for radioisotope/s tests for his Great Barrier Reef research.
As it happens, I personally have no problem with Climate Change...as in climate change, and a reasonable attitude to make sure pollution is a prime motivation, regardless of climate change research...one reason why I think Trump was stupid to start opening mines that had been closed.
However I do think that the basic stats, the starting point over a couple of hundred years, are full of anomaly, weather stations time and time again, that were there so long that the environment around them changed completely, others were put in totally wrong places, heat sinks like asphalt, air con, walls, vehicles parking, airports...all sorts of things, all that went into their 'modelling'...the holy grail of all things scientific. Yep, great stuff, and nobody's supposed to mind about the odd bad apple that is above and beyond the already anomalous material.
In edit Here's a link to The Guardian from over a year ago, something I was looking for re this man, (It looks like he even told his boss he would get the work done cheaper because of his American passport, and yes, he was a senior researcher)


www.theguardian.com...

I don't think this should have any impact on his prior scientific work, since that's not the reason he's been done for fraud.


But a propensity for lying doesn't matter in his career?
This is no small mark on his record but a blot on his entire character.

Amazing how a post like this gets starred.

The guy's credibility in general is a huge question mark because he's a crook. But unless you're claiming that you have evidence that a far larger number of climate scientists are crooks than in other industries or that this guy authored a particularly influential study that has yet to be peer reviewed (which in and of itself is a contradiction), it's goofy to jump to the conclusion that this has any bearing on "climate science."


Huh! I think you are away in another place, I'm talking about the man and the credibility of his work...okay?

'Tis thee who is jumping the gun.


No one gives a crap about the credibility of HIS work. No one even knows who he is.

Clearly this thread is meant as a shot at climate science in general.

Awwwwww yeah, son. Jumpin' the gun royale style!

This scientist entire work before this arrest is now in question. Its liek a Prosecutor being found to be dirty. all his previous convictions might be over turned.

That's right Yuppa, this guy was a public official, and he failed big time, and all his own accrued work assets around a $million, frozen....a fecking $million in supperann and holidays presumably not taken??? His capers cannot be ignored, and central to that is the GBR research.
That area, we have been told has been failing for a long time, with Climate Change...and pretty much all the previous acronyms that were used as the cause. So what part he played....and he was doing it for a long time, is the question everyone should be asking, regardless of what they think.

Wonder if he was using the money to buy rare and antique books on Climate Change.

No, but vintage issues of Playboy and Penthouse are very expensive!

B) his convicton has nothing to do with climate research

I think it does. These "climate scientists" become so religious into selling their data, and see those huge dollar signs that they begin to lose touch with ethics in everything else in their lives that it all becomes the same thing. Their fraudulent science spills over into how they conduct everyday business.

Heat IS occurring WE can't do SQUAT that would effect it THAT badly.
Not to mention NATURAL methane far surpassing MANS output and THE WHOLE solar system is heating up comparatively.

SO...
No carbon taxation ,AIR taxation or really ANY taxation to enable the EU to GUN up under Brussels Belgium(BEFORE Brexit that is)
THEY'LL just have to war with us over it.

its enough for the opening poster.

strange however that one guy done for financial fraud proves climate change to be a myth yet, he supports a president with numerous convictions.

more a signal of what ats and conspiracy bods alike have become.

So what does the crime have to do with climate science? Antique books, of course, that means climate science is a complete fraud, how could I have missed it?

Nothing of course, but propaganda must go on, mustn't it Goebbels?

Its really simple if you look at the OPs posting history. It is all about spinning stories.

That may be true BUT.... This does call into question his findings due to the nature of his fraud. Thats undeniable.
