Niwa sacks Jim Salinge!
Yay. Described by fawning Gorbulites as “one of New Zealand’s top climate scientists” Jim was in fact one of the worlds worst climate alarmists who used his position at the National institute of Water and Atmospheric Research to soapbox his extremist agenda.
No fail, door ass way out see you BYE.
About bloody time. In fact our most respected and “top” climatologist was Augie Auer who dies in June 2007 who helped found the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition in order to argue claims about man-made global warming. Causing the Met office to shit itself and run scared under the Clark regime. But them days is over. So in the spirit of the MSM using the late great Auguies death to attack his rational approach we here at HMWAH will use the bums rush of Soapbox Salinge to restate Auers position:
It is time to attack the myth of global warming.
Water vapour was responsible for 95 per cent of the greenhouse effect, an effect which was vital to keep the world warm. …If we didn’t have the greenhouse effect the planet would be at minus 18 deg C but because we do have the greenhouse effect it is plus 15 deg C, all the time. The other greenhouse gases: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrogen dioxide, and various others including CFCs, contributed only five per cent of the effect, carbon dioxide being by far the greatest contributor at 3.6 per cent. It would be like trying to increase the temperature of bath tub full of water using one drop from an eye dropper.
You are invited to add your scorn and derision for politically driven “science” in the comments. You can sort out who gets what category for yourselves.
