Bare faced cheek beats science anyday

Gerrit van der Lingen, New Zealand Climate Science Coalition: "I hope no agreement will be reached. After all, there is no scientific evidence human greenhouse gas emissions are causing dangerous global warming. Actually, the planet has been cooling for the last 10 years while CO2 levels kept on increasing. I call it the greatest scam in human history."

Remember the name New Zealand Climate Science Coalition, these bozos are quite active.
Desmog blog tells a bit more about van der Lingen here
No peer-reviewed research on climate change
According to a search of 22,000 academic journals, Van der Lingen has not published any research in a peer-reviewed journal on the subject of climate change. Google scholar shows two articles published in the 1970s. Van der Lingen describes himself as a geologist/paleoclimatologist and climate change consultant.

So the 'East Whangehu Biscuit Makers Monthly' doesn't show up in your search? Well whose fault is that

Wouldn't you rather have a nice fresh fact, just made up and still glistening with mucus, than a stale old one that lots of other people have already heard?

Why, then, does he call them 'greenhouse' gases?

O-ho: 'paleoclimatologist and climate change consultant.'

If only I could have grown up to be a consultant.

Just for the record.

Scientists such as Schmidt and Climatic Research Unit (CRU) professor Phil Jones have also pointed out that warming caused by an El Niño event and cooling caused by a La Niña event can have a drastic impact on year-to-year variability in global average temperatures, making Hertzberg's comparison of "the El Nino Year of 1998" -- the hottest year on record according to CRU and the Met Office Hadley Centre -- to the period spanning from January 2007 to "the spring of 2008" -- when a significant La Niña was occurring -- especially misleading.

Apparently, unlike other topics such as offset printing, financial management or acquisition of fine art works, to be a climate change consultant requires no actual knowledge or understanding of climate science.

I wonder who created this exemption?

Maybe the money prize offered by the Heritage Foundation to anyone who could refute Global Warming created these climate consultants, Mikey.

I have been an offset printer, and acquired fine art works -- not at the same time, I hasten to add -- but in both cases, no-one tested my knowledge or understanding of climate science. So mikey is REFUTED.

Perhaps a better comparison for van der Lingen's consultant gig would be "working in a massage parlour", which sometimes requires no actual knowledge or understanding of standard massage techniques.

I am totally a blogging consultant and Thunder owes me money.

Or so we've heard,

I see we're back at "bare faced cheek".

Tee hee, I saw the "butter on the paws" comment via RSS and thought it was on this post, a sort of massage parlor/cathouse thing.
