Schneider gives new meaning to 'Denier'

Quoting Dr. Stephen H. Schneider at HuffPo
(I inserted the link):
“The amazing scientific thing that nobody seems to be covering is that the ‘hockey stick’ was never used as proof of anthropogenic global warming by IPCC”
Upon reading this,
the first image in my minds eye was
Seth & Amy doing a “REALLY?” segment!

The BBC debunks Schneider.

Quoting the IPCC Third Assessment Report:
“New analyses of proxy data for the Northern Hemisphere indicate that the increase in temperature in the 20th century is likely to have been the largest of any century during the past 1,000 years. It is also likely that, in the Northern Hemisphere, the 1990s was the warmest decade and 1998 the warmest year (Figure 1b).”

Dr. Schneider:
Are you attempting to outdo the Soviet propensity for rewriting history?
Come on! We know you’re a self-described propagandist.
But, this is extreme -- even by your “standards”.

By the way, quoting the infamous words of Dr. Stephen Schneider from his own web page (emphasis mine):

“On the one hand, as scientists we are ethically bound to the scientific method, in effect promising to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but – which means that we must include all doubts, the caveats, the ifs, ands and buts. On the other hand, we are not just scientists but human beings as well. And like most people we’d like to see the world a better place, which in this context translates into our working to reduce the risk of potentially disastrous climate change. To do that we need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, means getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. This ‘double ethical bind’ we frequently find ourselves in cannot be solved by any formula. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective [in advancing the political cause] and being honest [in describing the science]. I hope that means being both.”

Moral relativism. Postmodern poststructuralism hits the hard sciences.

Bagdad Bob revisited: "No I am not scared, and neither should you be!"

It sounds as though you have been reading too much of the propaganda produced by the real Baghdad Bob of global warming and watching too many propaganda clips specifically designed to scare children.

Of course, Seth Borenstein is only slightly more extreme in his propagandizing than the average so-called environmental “journalist”.

My advice is to ignore the so-called “journalists” and examine the directly cited peer reviewed science.
