FiveThirtyEight Apologizes On Behalf Of Controversial Climate Science Writer

FiveThirtyEight Apologizes On Behalf Of Controversial Climate Science Writer

Commented Mar 28, 2014 at 19:35:41 in Media

“The science is very simple. Earth's temperature has been rising recently so we look for the cause. How about billions of tons of greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere. But you say, almost 4% of the scientists are climate doubters. Hmmmm. It reminds me of the scientists that appeared before congress to exclaim that Tar and nicotine did not cause cancer. Later it turns out that through recordings these scientists admitted in private that tar and nicotine caused cancer but that they lied to us for money from the tobacco companies. NO SELF RESPECTING SCIENTIST WOULD DENY THAT WE ARE COOKING THE ATMOSPHERE. The evidence is undeniable. Billions of TONS of methane and Co2 do not lie.”

TC426 on Mar 28, 2014 at 19:56:54

“Billions of tons is a bit misleading. We have raised the concentration of CO2, but it is still just a trace gas at 400 ppm”

Dragonmoose on Mar 28, 2014 at 19:50:56

“Their theme song can be...."I Like Big Co2 and I Can Not Lie"?

Kind of a stretch. I get points for trying though, right?”

“Electoral votes do not show that the election was 51% 49%. Congress is not elected using the electoral system, that would be a popular vote. Spending must stop, taxes must be lower, the government must be downsized and the only people capable of doing this is the strong conservatives.”

“I'm talking. Send Cruz a bill for 24 Billion dollars. Yes an invoice for the 24 Billion that he cost us. After Bush's depression and our inching out of it he throws a wrench into the economy. Someone please tell this clown that stupidity, ignorance and narcissism are no way to go through life.”

“You are so wrong you simply need to pull yourself together. Everyone who was laidoff will get full pay and they simple got a 16/17 day paid leave. During the so called limited shutdown at least keep the government from wasting more money so in short it was a cut to our spending and most Americans are greatfull for any and all cuts in spending done by this government.”

“I like your post but I disagree with part of it. Take for instance the fact that Obamacare was a republican idea brought to light by the Heritage Foundation. But the republicans are now saying that the law is communist, unconstitutional and the worst law in the history of this country. Why? I'll tell you why, because it became law under the presidency of a black man. The republicans heads are exploding. The code for "black man" is undeniable. After Obama I think we will see much less of this extortion. Until then, what are we going to do with these tearepublican traitors and terrorists?”

thadian on Oct 16, 2013 at 11:56:34

“1. Republicans pretend to oppose Romneycare as a PR stunt. In actuality, they wrote it, and look forward to cashing in derivatives against the insurance plans of millions of Americans.

2. Similar to how the Republicans under White Bush considered it anti-patriotic and unamerican to oppose the Patriot Act and intrusive anti-privacy laws; then oppose everything Obama tries to do; except of course, expand that set of laws, which they silently expand every time.

You just can't win with them. I personally think we need to charge the GOP with Treason and Sedition under the US Patriot Act.”
