Victoria Taft Editorial Note: Today I received word that OMSI, which purports to be a “scientific” organization, had cancelled a meeting of the Oregon Chapter of the American Meteorological Society because man made global warming skeptics would be presenting. If there’s another explanation it may be obtained by emailing these officials with AMS.
As long time readers of this blog and listeners to The Victoria Taft Show recognize, Official Oregon is in line with the man made global warming theorists. One of the presenters at this latest meeting, in fact, George Taylor, was forced out of his Oregon State University job by Governor Kulongoski for being a skeptic of man made global warming. He’s Oregon’s Galileo.
Considering the recent events of Climategate II and the recent study from researchers of Oregon State, Harvard, Princeton, Cornell and Barcelona, official science is now redounding on the side of man made global warming skepticism–as science should be. As seen in the first and second rafts of Climategate emails, collusion, hiding legit science and lying about results are de rigeur.
Here’s the missive sent to me today by Gordon Fulks, PhD. It is reprinted with his permission:The Oregon American Meteorological Society’s event featuring Meteorologist Chuck Wiese, Climatologist George Taylor, and me on November 29 at OMSI was canceled at the last minute today due to pressure from local universities and others who were apparently upset that our skeptical perspective on Global Warming would interfere with their climate agendas and Federal funding. Details will surely leak out as will whatever reasons they will cite as a cover story.
We suspected this would happen and would happen at the last minute to make it impossible to reschedule the event immediately. But we are grateful to the President of the local AMS chapter (Steve Pierce) and some members of his Board who have expressed a strong determination to reschedule this event in January. Even those Board members who may not support our position on Global Warming seem determined that this event WILL go forward. That should be a warning to those who orchestrated this power play. Most AMS members clearly want to hear both sides, without their organization taking any sides. I applaud their professional behavior. We are not seeking any endorsements, because that is not how science works.
We are seeking the opportunity to present the logic and evidence that are so crucial in objective science. That should not threaten ANYONE who supports real science.
Please be sure to mark your calenders for the January event when we have a specific date and venue that will be more difficult for Alarmists to scuttle.
BANNED BY OMSI, Portland State University, and others – Come and find out what they did not want you to hear!Steve Pierce
