International Adopt-A-Whore Week

I have chosen Myron Ebell as my subject because he's got a weird name and says weird stuff. In between the dull moments when he is nitpicking various "mistakes" made by climate scientists as an integral facet of the process known to some as the "Scientific Method", he makes some stunning revelations which need to be savored. Here you will see one of President Bush's "scientific" advisors in action, ensuring that he and his administration lives in a different reality to the rest of the world.

Pity that their oil wells and bombs can't go live in that different reality as well.

Myron Ebell is a professional climate denier. He is not a scientist. He thinks that his paycheck is the only hard scientific evidence that anyone needs to know what's right.

Myron Ebell has sufficient arrogance to slander all scientists outside of the United States of America because they are not independent of their government. Only people like him, funded by Exxonmobil, are truly independent thinkers.

Scientists who believe in Climate Change are, according to him, either fatally biased by their political desire to suppress energy use, or woefully ignorant and fooled by this vast hoax, this mass of fabricated data and false predictions which is an organized conspiracy dreamt up by the governments of France and Germany and their collaborating scientists to ration the world, especially America, of its vital energy resources that it needs to continue its booming triumph of superior economic performance and conquest.

What does Myron Ebell believe? Can anyone say, after combing through every word written and said by this great man, what would be on his mind if he wasn't paid to think it? As a hired "expert" at the "Competitive Enterprise Institute", he buys into the brain-dead doctrine of total market philosophy.

The basic proposition is that everything should be determined by the market, regardless of what it is in essence.

If the market system is good enough for determining what flavours of ice cream are going to be mixed and sold at the start of the week, then it's good enough to determine which scientific theories are the correct ones, by measuring how much people are willing to pay for them. It's the ultimate in relativism. Shall we say that the market should also be applied to love and sex, ideally for sale between consenting adults, rather than aspire that it should be a gift from the heart?

This is what makes Myron Ebell a whore. The pretense of science and the seeking of truth, when it's no more than a blow-job for five bucks. It's cheap and dirty. It asks nothing of the client that would change his mind and improve his character. What is the world really going on about? What is this strange thing called life? If you listen to Myron Ebell, you won't find out.

Hello,
Your comments are, as Myron would say, "rubbish". Myron Ebell is the very saint of reason. He does not say what he does because people pay him. He takes the stands he does because they are good, because they are right, and because they are saluitary. To disagree is to show your inorance. If you had a clue about global warming you would be writing a check to CEI at this very moment and earmarking it for Myron Ebell.

You sir are nothing but a myopic miscreant of mendacious misinformation.
Best wishes,
Barry O'Connell

I think the accepted term is "climate revisionist".
