Alan Alda: Climate Change
Activists Have to Convince
People on ´Equal Footing´

PJ Media, by Nicholas Ballasy

Posted By:Hazymac, 11/14/2017 4:21:38 PM

WASHINGTON – Emmy Award-winning actor Alan Alda of the television series M*A*S*H said it is “very hard” to make a connection between climate change and extreme weather events. Alda, who played Capt. Hawkeye Pierce on M*A*S*H, is currently running the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University. He was asked at a recent D.C. event to identify ways that scientists could better communicate the effects of climate change to the American public. Alda suggested that scientists make sure to “establish common ground between you and the person you are talking to” about climate change or related issues. Alda mentioned

Uh-oh. Alda´s liberal credentials might be in danger is he contradicts the Great Goron himself. What this means is that Alda is more honest than the former Rice President, not that that´s a particularly difficult way to be. Anyway, good for Hawkeye.

Way back in the fall of 1971, I was forced to take an "Ecology" class in order to get my college degree. Time after time, I tangled with my professor about the fact that what he was teaching was pure bull hockey. He was promising that by 1985, we would all be covered up by a massive glacier. I told him that not only was he nuts, he was borderline dumb. I passed, barely, but when it was all said and done, I got my degree and more students came to agree with me.

The irony of all of this was in the summer of 1994, I met him in a local hardware store and it was about 98 degrees outside. I recognized him before he recognized me, but I sidled up to him and said, "Man, I´ve insulated my igloo and it´s still freezing inside. How´s your place?" He didn´t find that funny in the least, but I did.

How ´bout checking your assumptions, your computer models and your holier than thou attitude at the door ?

Then be willing to accept the scientific method which places the onus on those who make grand claims to produce ´Grand Evidence´ and embrace all of those who are trying to HELP you find holes in your theory rather than let you embarrass yourself any further.

As an entertainer, you can be forgiven but many trained ´Scientists´ have whored themselves and their ethics out to political and monetary gain.

Both shameful and criminal...all the money wasted and all the progress trashed and careers of good people ruined.

Marxism destroys EVERYTHING it touches.

Alda was among the first male feminists going back to the ´70s. Always conspicuously left of center, he has nonetheless rejected the most important--and central--tenet of the climate fanatics, which is that mankind plays a significant role in changing the climate. For that alone he deserves a cheer; once that point falls, the remainder of the ultra-Green philosophy stands wavering, ready to be blown over.

Alan, part of the problem is the lack of evidence which hasn´t been massaged to produce results the climate change activists want. To have ´Equal Footing´ you must have some agreement on what is trustworthy.

The Climate deniers point to limited data, computer models that fail to match real conditions, and ´scientists´ changing data wholesale.

The Climate activists point to the UN report and data compiled by these scientists we´ve caught ´cheating´.

I´m sorry, Alan. There IS no place where one can establish ´Equal Footing´. And browbeating people with claims of ´consensus´ means nothing in the light that this argument was used in centuries past to fight against almost very scientific discovery.

If anything, ´consensus´ almost guarantees that the argument is wrong-headed or maliciously false to protect some entrenched bureaucrat.

You need to take a look at your side and purge the evidence they´ve compiled, that WE DON´T TRUST, and see if you have anything left to argue for. Then compile NEW data and see if it leads where you thought it did.

So Al what you are saying is that you have to stoop down to my level to get me to understand your superior intellect?

FTA: "...it’s very hard to convince somebody of something if their paycheck depends on not believing it. So you’ve got to make that connection as much as you can.”"

You know Al, it´s even harder when it not only makes the paycheck go poof but when it is also demonstrably false, proven to have been a fraud, total fabrication. Then it´s an ever lovin biach to convince people. Takes more that a cool Dr. pose

The science behind global warming has been fraudulent. They remove 8000 weather stations but forget to factor in 7600 of them were cold weather stations. Fact is, in the last 10k years 94% have been warmer years. Magnetic reversals have more to do with the weather than anything man could do. Over the last 20 years, our solar system has warmed up more than Earth.

Here´s a suggestion for Mr. Alda, and for people on every side of the debate about human-caused climate change.

1) Take a look outside your nearest window. Or better yet, step outside so you are experiencing the current "climate."
2) Acknowledge that at some point in the history of our planet, the CLIMATE (not the weather!) has been cooler than it currently is, and also has been warmer than it currently is.

So - what´s the ideal climate for the place where you live? Hard to say, since it´s always been changing!

Are humans causing climate change? Maybe... maybe not.

Can humans make the climate STOP changing? I´d have to say NO (quite emphatically!).

I´d encourage everybody to try to minimize their impact on the environment. There ARE ways we make it worse - atmosphere, water, etc. But I learned that in Boy Scouts, NOT from Algore or Alan Alda or any of the other do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do Climate Clowns.

This is not a messaging problem: it is a science problem. Real science, not "political science" (/s). Scientific hypotheses are "validated" by empirical evidence. Have the computer models make some accurate, timely, and demonstrable climate predictions, and folks might pay attention.

To pretend doctor Alan Alda...in answer to your problem of convincing people that scientists are correct in their theories about climate change.

The answer is to quit calling them "scientists"...when they should be called "fundraisers" because they have to keep the government grants flowing...or these "scientists" just might change their views on climate change.

Alda is actually a pretty uneducated. He has an English BA, so no doubt is knowledgeable about certain literature and writing styles, but these folks are notoriously weak on even basic mathematics and science, typically no clue about the laws of physics.

But he played a doc on TV, so he must be a real genius, right? /s off

On Tuesday morning, 500 German police officers carried out anti-terror raids, detaining six Syrian refugees suspected of fighting for the Islamic State (ISIS). Authorities say they were planning a terror attack six days before Christmas. Reports suggest that the target may have been a Christmas market. Prosecutors in Frankfurt said that six Syrian men between the ages of 20 and 28 were taken into custody. Roughly 500 police officers took part in the raids of eight apartments in the German cities of Kassel, Hanover, Essen, and Leipzig.

WASHINGTON – Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, known as a champion for gay rights, is expected to play a key role in the outcome of the Supreme Court’s review of a Colorado baker’s decision to refuse service to a same-sex couple on religious grounds. A senior director with the American Civil Liberties Union said Thursday that Kennedy has been distracted by the “deep faith” of Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, who refused to bake a wedding cake for Charlie Craig and David Mullins. Kennedy, an 81-year-old Republican, has been instrumental in scoring several key judicial victories for gay rights. “I think

Producer Brett Ratner and music mogul Russell Simmons face new allegations of sexual assault and misconduct. “Live with Kelly and Ryan” co-host Ryan Seacrest took the pre-emptive move of denying an accusation before it went public.

Franken’s scandal represents a crossover between the world of show business in which he made his career and the world of politics in which he has sought to become a champion of the left. Here former Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone was his model.

To understand the damage the storm of scandal is creating in Hollywood, the media and Washington one must go back nearly a hundred years to a time when prestige ruled the world. Whenever a small group of people rule over multitudes coercion usually becomes an impractical method of subjugation. The only alternative to physical control, as 19th century Europeans found, was bluff, or prestige as it was then called. Prestige made it possible for a few to govern numerous (and often violent) subjects. Prestige was almost entirely psychological, based on instilling a genuine respect and admiration among the ruled.

A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order to cut funding from so called “sanctuary cities.” Trump’s order would have removed some federal funds from cities that limit their cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the Trump administration’s argument that the measure only applies to a relatively small pool of money. Orrick also said that Trump cannot set fresh conditions on spending that Congress has previously approved. Monday’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by two California counties, Santa Clara and San Francisco.
