But, it's science with a purpose. (mp3)
The IPCC released it's latest report. Mandated conclusions. After all, it is a political document. We're asked to ignore the method the report's conclusions used to get there. Even Dr. Neilson remarks that before anything could be included in this document, it had to pass review of the politicians. Somehow that's supposed to be a good thing?Participants:
Dr. Ron Neilson, Bio-climatologist with the USDA Forest Service and IPCC contributing scientist;
Dr. Eban Goodstein, Professor of Economics at Lewis and Clark College, and Focus the Nation Director;
Dave Riley, President and Chief Operating Officer at Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort;
Dr. Gregory Jones, Department of Geography at Southern Oregon University; and
Erin Anderson, Oregon Representative for the National Environmental Trust will moderate the call.
Here's the set-up: "Are we prepared, as large-scale ecosystem managers, to manage rapidly changing ecosystems for change, per se, rather than continue managing them with the status quo as if they are not changing?” (USDA Forest Service bio-climatologist and IPCC contributing scientist Dr. Ron Neilson)
He's right you know. This change is so rapid, that an economist from Lewis & Clark College is concerned. This is the school that taught that all employees needed to be paid the same amount as any other employee. Because only this method of determining wages was fair. I think the old-schoolers referred to this as communism. But maybe you have another name?
And don't forget the wine industry. The temperature change is so rapid that land prices are jumping on the foothills of the Rocky Mountain range. And is the reason why grapes are no longer grown in California.
This Oregon experience is unique. Only in Oregon do we confuse weather with climate.
If you're not following what the Left is doing on climate, and doing to you, take a look. It's not science. It's "Credible Science". Credible science. Not quite sci-fi? Not provable, but important? What is the phrase I'm looking for...something like "accurate but fake"?
If none of what you listen to rises to a level that concerns you, don't be surprised. It just had to sound like science. Unfortunately, it really didn't rise to that level. Not one dissenting voice. Just like real science, er, credible science.
