Global Warming Show Down: Scientist in Chief Kulongoski Succeeds in Ousting Oregon’s Climatologist

George Taylor, formerly the Oregon State Climatologist, has quietly left his job in academia after being scorned, pilloried, and mocked by Oregon’s global warming experts, Governor Ted Kulongoski and Bill Bradbury, who, when he’s not giving speeches about Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truths” and being a democratic party hack, is Oregon’s Secretary of State.
It came down to Taylor, a climate scientist, believing that while global warming has existed, it was not chiefly caused by man.
As you know Taylor was countermanded by Kulo the guv and Bradbury. In fact, the Governor didn’t even see fit to name Taylor to his global warming commission.
The State Climatologist and student of global warming –not invited.
It was as if they wanted a preordained outcome to the commission or something.
Naw….
Here’s a post back when this whole thing reared its ugly head.
Here’s George’s bio:
