The Way Back (AGW – Not Happy with the Science or the Outcome)


There is much to learn, or to become satisfied with the support offered, from this post. I find I do not agree with all that Dr Gray says, particularly his enthusiasm for nuclear power, but I do understand his reasons.

What is important are his thoughts on how the “science” applied to AGW is unsupported by valid logical thinking and processes and yet how it manages to still shape the world’s thinking and actions.

Really impressed by his understanding of the impossibility of establishing a meaningful average global temperature, whereby it becomes a joke to make political decisions on such data (my comment).

Watts Up With That?

The_way_backGuest essay by Dr. Vincent Gray, Wellington, NZ

For over 30 years the world has been saturated with the environmental fallacy.

It has taken over the media; newspapers, radio, TV; the education system;, the schools, the universities.

It has led to a retreat from experimental and theoretical science.

My professional career began during the war when science made a substantial contribution to its outcome. We had vigorous scientific discussions both in public and in the media. We published them in the journals. We enjoyed prestige, attractive salaries and public confidence.

It declined immediately the war ended. R V Jones, in his “Most Secret War” recounts that as soon as the war ended the military were no longer interested in measures to improve conditions of survival of pilots.

I endured a steady decline of science. In industrial research the role of the scientist was to justify the decisions of the sales…

One Response to The Way Back (AGW – Not Happy with the Science or the Outcome)

    Regretfully, Dr. Vincent Gray is apparently still unaware that the integrity of education, science and constitutional government have been compromised since the United Nations was formed on 24 Oct 1945 out of fear and loathing of humans and the instinct of survival.

    Fear and loathing that humans might destroy the world with forbidden knowledge of the energy that destroyed large parts of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6 and 9 Aug 1945 have instead destroyed the integrity:

    _ a.) Public education
    _ b.) Government science, and
    _ c.) Civilian control of government

    The source of energy that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki is also the source of energy that

    _ d.) Made our elements
    _ e.) Birthed the Solar System five billion years (5 Gyr) ago
    _ f.) Sustained the origin and evolution of life after 3.5 Gyr ago, and
    _ g.) Sustains every atom, life and world that exists in the Solar System today.

    What a sad, sad state of affairs for science and society!

    With deep regrets,
