H/T PhilinCalifornia for the idea
Yep, its proven that when Obama stated this in his climate change speech on June 23rd:
So the question is not whether we need to act. The overwhelming judgment of science — of chemistry and physics and millions of measurements — has put all that to rest. Ninety-seven percent of scientists, including, by the way, some who originally disputed the data, have now put that to rest. They’ve acknowledged the planet is warming and human activity is contributing to it.
That 97% number he used comes from the paper written by John Cook of Skeptical Science. I guess I could point out how Cook is not a scientist, but rather a cartoonist, but why waste the fun in seeing who the president of the US listens to on science matters. Recently, we found out that the owner of that blog, John Cook Photoshops himself and his friends into NAZI portraits for fun. The first picture of Cook himself is here:
It’s not a bad picture I guess if you enjoy dressing yourself up as a NAZI. But maybe photo-shopping your picture on top of an old nazi uniform does not make you a NAZI. Perhaps in some bizarre creepy fashion show they thought it was funny. Always a possibility, but as of yet we have not heard why they thought this was a good idea, or any justification for that matter, I am not going to state flat-out that we know what Cook is, but the picture HE had on his website originally does show him in a NAZI uniform. What are we supposed to assume by this if he remains silent?
I am just baffled that anyone would take advice on science from someone like that I guess. In other words, the leader of the free world takes his advice from a cartoonist from Australia who thinks its fun to photo-shop his picture on top of an old NAZI picture? The more you read into the science of global warming, the more bizarre it gets. I expect loads of more fun as the current stasis of our climate system continues.
