You probably heard of Michael Mann, but how about Bob Ward? He's a bristling alarmist asshole who will trash anyone who disagrees with him. Ask Bob Carter.
It was an Australian scientist, Bob Carter, who first drew attention to the flattening trend in an article in Britain’s The Telegraph in April 2006. Carter reviewed the official temperature records of the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia for the years 1998 to 2005 and asked: “Does something not strike you as odd?”The man directing this destruction was Bob Ward. I'm really getting sick of the childish people who put everything into political and emotional terms. There are real fucking problems out there and they need to be addressed. West Africans crying because of a travel ban? Fuck them, we ain't risking Ebola outbreaks here. Spoiled pussy teenage college students crying about the environment when they have no fucking idea what's really going but have no problem with crushing people's jobs and livelihoods? Go to hell, All of you.
Carter’s reward for identifying the lack of global warming was to have his professional reputation trashed. When Carter repeated his suggestion in the Australian press a year later, the CSIRO felt obliged to respond. Carter had presented “an unethical misrepresentation of the facts”, wrote Andrew Ash, acting director of the CSIRO’s Climate Adaptation Flagship. “All scientists welcome honest criticism since it helps to sharpen our analyses and improve our understanding, but skepticism based on half-truths and misrepresentation of facts is not helpful.”
