@latimeralder @davidappell @CColose @curryja @mtobis @BVerheggen Wrongness of models verified!!which reminds me: After Moore testified before the U.S. Congress earlier this year, I ripped into an odorous statement he made there:
— Patrick Moore (@EcoSenseNow) August 31, 2014
"Then an Ice Age occurred 450 million years ago when CO2 was 10 times higher than today."as if that proved CO2 wasn't a greenhouse gas. That's absurd for a several reasons, but one of the most obvious is that the Sun was about 4% less radiant back then (and also because the worldwide scientific community would have ground to a halt until they understood it).
I emailed Moore later and asked his why he didn't mention this in his testimony. Here's what he told me, on March 25th:
"If you had 5 minutes in the Senate I’m sure you would leave a few things out too."That's right -- Dr. Moore's excuse is that while he had time to present a misleading statement, he didn't have time to mention it was bunk.
What can you say about that? Nothing, really -- you almost want to simply stand back and applaud the chutzpah.
