Michael Crichton: 'Al Gore Is Wrong About Global Warming'

'Al Gore has never looked at the data.'

The late Michael Crichton with Charlie Rose.  Aired Aug. 27, 2007.

Outstanding Michael Crichton interview from a few years ago.  It's a 5-star appearance.  Crichton graduated Harvard Medical School, was a published scientist, and was a fellow at the Jonas Salk Institute before becoming a Hollywood writer/producer, so it's not really a fair fight.

UPDATE - Check Out This Climate Change Timeline 1895-2010

'Telling the truth about climate hysteria has made me a pariah.'

My problem is with corrupted science.

Science should be pure, non-political. Open, transparent, all data revealed. And there is a political agenda behind the warming movement that is sinister. The data is all derivative...analyzing ice rings and tree cores...all to find a supposed 1 degree rise in celsius temps over 150 years.

I wouldn't be such a skeptic if I hadn't been indoctrinated as a middle schooler, by the same group of climate alarmists, into believing that a NEW Ice Age was coming.

Thank you for posting this. Keep it coming. There is so much more out there that is being overlooked of even intentionally suppressed by the established fear-mongers and power brokers.

Think back to 1982 when both Time and Newsweek ran cover stories suggesting the next ice-age was upon us based on global climate change. We are talking less than 30 years ago, less than the blink of an eye in geologic terms.

The glaciers are melting? Yes, people, they have been for some time now, remember the ice age?

Believe in global warming, believe in the lottery as a savings plan, believe the TARP saved the world! Seriously, global warming? And you have something to do with it? Does that even make a little sense?

Global Warming Debate - Michael Crichton

Here's a great comment from someone at Clusterstock...

Ghost of George Carlin on Nov 20, 4:43 PM said:

The planet is fine. The PEOPLE are fucked. Difference. Difference. The planet is fine. Compared to the people, the planet is doing great. Been here four and a half billion years. Did you ever think about the arithmetic? The planet has been here four and a half billion years. We’ve been here, what, a hundred thousand? Maybe two hundred thousand? And we’ve only been engaged in heavy industry for a little over two hundred years. Two hundred years versus four and a half billion. And we have the CONCEIT to think that somehow we’re a threat? That somehow we’re gonna put in jeopardy this beautiful little blue-green ball that’s just a-floatin’ around the Sun?

The planet has been through a lot worse than us. Been through all kinds of things worse than us. Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles…hundreds of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, worlwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages…And we think some plastic bags, and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference? The planet…the planet…the planet isn’t going anywhere. WE ARE!

We’re going away. Pack your shit, folks. We’re going away. And we won’t leave much of a trace, either. Thank God for that. Maybe a little styrofoam. Maybe. A little styrofoam. The planet’ll be here and we’ll be long gone. Just another failed mutation. Just another closed-end biological mistake. An evolutionary cul-de-sac. The planet’ll shake us off like a bad case of fleas. A surface nuisance.

I don't know about global warming, but I have noticed something weird:

Ever since Japan had 3 nuclear meltdowns in March of 2011, there have been RECORD-BREAKING droughts, heat, tornadoes and storms.

Research it yourself. There are tons of newspaper reports on the strange weather since Japan's nuclear meltdowns.

Two highly recommended sites have comments discussing this:

Still here with about 6 inches of wet heavy snow. A bit breezy with winds about 30 with gusts to 55. A large ash tree on the property line (which was split at the trunk anyway) finally came down on my side of the line, now I am 1 cord of firewood and a couple of nice logs richer! The coast (about 5 miles away) is dealing with heavier winds (as expected) with power outages sporadic inland, but widespread on the waterfront (ocean). This is a typical north-easter winter storm, but by no means anything special.

Hopefully the temps will drop tonight so that the snow blowing will be a little easier in the morning.

The entire 'Global warming/Carbon Tax scam was to refloat the British Empire. The sorry little squirt at Buckingham thought Al 'D' Gore's 'D' in his only college science class stood for 'dandy' and so picked him as the castle wizard. The 'D' in wizard Gore's scholastic record was for his sole collegiate science class: Natural Science 102. Popcorn and melting ice with a Bunson burner. Al must have burned his fingers to be convinced of 'Global Warming'.

I remember, I was glued to 'climategate' when the East Anglia and Penn State e-mails first came out until the debate became utterly ridicules. James Delingpole from the UK had quite a few things to say. George Monbiot on the other side of the spectrum. Anyways, in my opinion a big hoax pulled on ignorant people. Didn't the Chicago (of all places) Carbon whatever shut down already? Now it's the Deutsche Bank exchange. But don't you ever forget to reduce your carbon footprint. LOL

John, love ash. Decent heat value, clean burn. Great for making bats. Maybe you could spin one out and send it down to Boston.

Still here and about 11 inches total and no power this morning. What really convicted Al about AGW was that he did burn his fingers playing with matches and still has nightmares about it. He still pee's in bed trying to put the matches out.

This is a sort of presantation I really like, and its the way I think, cause and effect.

All the signs is pointing to a more "normale" winter, as the once before.
A 30 years aprx circel as I see it.

The scam, is CO2, thats the problem, and I consider the treason comited by the sientific comunety as the absoloute worst thing that has happened in the reasent decade, not the lack of it or its limmits, despite our bragging of "progres" our messuremt track record is just 300-500 years old, at best.

I sincerly hope the the sientific comunety wakes up to this sellout of credibility and downright lies, exposing a morale non of us ,that has wintesied this decade of drivel, expected. Its been downright pinfull, and its just sadening to behold.
Thats the truth.
They know and so do we.

There is a little known but perfect correlation (R^2 = 1.00) over time between the position taken by climate alarmists and the current fashion in women's pants.

Back in the 1970s, when bell bottoms and gauchos were all the rage with the ladies, global cooling was plumped as the menace that would surely end all life on the planet. Elementary school and junior high was one big buzzkiling blur, alternating as it did between quizzes on ludicrous "science" in the classroom and the struggle to check out ass obscured by loose-fitting denim.

Over the next four decades, as jogging, flash-dancing, aerobics, and finally yoga took over--and asses tightened--ladies pants grew correspondingly snugger. This necessitated the introduction of thong underwear to the U.S. in the mid-1980s and culminated with skinny jeans in the mid-2000s. "Scientists" took note, and changed all of their equations to posit global warming as the result. You see here literal tail wagging the dog.

This is why I am a huge fan of global warming. In fact, I am eagerly awaiting the clarion calls of global baking and broiling.

I had a teacher who so militant about the coming ice age that she turned the kids (myself included) into energy police for our homes. I started to have conflicts with my parents because I would freak out when lights were left on, etc. I was 10 years old and indoctrinated completely. I'm still angry the schools would allow teaching alarmist nonsense to pre-teens. Now I despise anyone doing the same to today's kids.

Al has made one hell of a living being wrong on so many things.., where can I get a job like this?

Good to see you made it through the storm John.

Baking and broiling, I love it Cheyenne.

Michael Crichton has been dead for 5 years. This is obviously very old news and should not be repeated. Don't you have anything more current?

If a carbon tax then why not a population tax? Perhaps people should be made to pay for their children's and animals' contributions to mankind's population problem, which underlies a host of problems, alleged carbonization of the environment being only one of many resulting from mankind's fecundity and domesticated animals.

One has to ask to what extent the lifestyles of the wealthy ruling elites depend upon human overpopulation outside their secure walled-off estates.

Science magazine: Demanding reproducibility up front


Lance Wallace writes

Science magazine has instituted a new policy requiring authors of preclinical studies to state their statistical plans (sample size estimation, treatment of outliers, etc.). See editorial by the new Editor in chief, Marcia McNutt (p. 229, volume 343, 17 Jan 2014).

This reads as though it were written by McIntyre, Montford, Wegman….

“Because reviewers who are chosen for their expertise in subject matter may not be authorities in statistics as well, statistical errors in manuscripts may slip through. For that reason…we are adding new members to our Board of Reviewing Editors from the statistical community to ensure that manuscripts receive appropriate scrutiny in their methods of data analysis.”

The article is here: http://www.sciencemagazinedigital.org/sciencemagazine/17_january_2014?pg=9#pg9

Hopefully this will spread to include climate "science".
