John O'Sullivan: "Hansen, Sagan and Venus with magellan probe" > Examining The Art Of Deception

 This is an extension of a discussion of sorts over at SkepticSocietyForum 
and though I don't have the time to do it justice,  
the article by one John O'sullivan 
is so outrageously deceptive and plain wrong... 
add to that, 
being a perfect example of what I mean by denialist "crazy-making," 
that I need to at least take a stab at examining and exposing 
the long list of errors in this piece of propaganda over learning
 {June 7, 2012}

I wholeheartedly encourage anyone 
who see's anything here they like and might be able to use, 
please take it, do with it what you can.  

We need more people to vocally object to the crazy-making 
of agenda driven deceivers such a this O'Sullivan character.

Black print represents O'Sullivan's paragraphs which I have included complete.
My replies and references will be in blue print.


Top Scientists Vent on NASA’s Sub Prime Greenhouse Gas Hoaxer

Climatologist James Hansen is under sustained attack accused of global warming fraud at a time when the powerful science journal, Nature admits “research is riddled with systematic errors.”

I know some claim is no different from WUWT.  

I have been told: 
"it's just a different perspective:
you choose to believe 
and I choose to believe WUWT.”

But, is it as simple as that?  How do we decide on the respective veracity of each?

Dear Heartland, Stop using Arthur Robinson's Trick to Hide the Incline

I've been way too busy to do much with this blog - But the outrages continue and I need to do something.  Fortunately, those folks at are on the job and have made it possible for concerned citizens, such as myself, to borrow and share stories from their website.

And since this story fit’s right in with my theme of doing a little part in helping expose the dishonestly within the so-called global warming “skeptical” movement, or AGWHoaxers.  The following seemed like a perfect post to share.

A short digression. . .
{actually that turned into a long digression so I've decided to make it a stand alone post over here}. So with no further adieu the following is another example of the dirty tricks used by those wanting to deny the simple truths regarding society's grand atmospheric experiment . . .

Dear Heartland, Stop using Arthur Robinson's Trick to Hide the Incline (via Skeptical Science)
Posted on 18 May 2012 by Mark Boslough Climate change is debated in letters to the editor of hometown newspapers all over the world.   In the Las Cruces, New Mexico, Sun-News, one reader recently cited "a 1996 paper by Kiegwin (sic) in Science which showed that, despite the present having a CO2 concentration…

Examing Dr. David Evans' misrepresentation of Ocean Warming

The following is another in depth examination of the misrepresentation AGW "skeptics," or should I say contrarians, use to cover up their lack of substance.  It comes courtesy of Rob Painting over at and I'm sharing it here because it's the least I can do to help get this information out to anyone willing to pay attention to what's happening these days.

In contrast to Pielke, let me introduce John Nielsen-Gammon

After my complaint about how someone like Dr. Pielke uses the contrarian-playbook to manipulating data intent on obscuring scientifically gained understanding, it was quite refreshing to read a Houston Chronicle article written by Texas State Climatologist and a Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at Texas A&M University, John Nielsen-Gammon, titled: "About the Lack of Warming…"

As I point out in the previous post, Climatologist are aware of reasons for global surface temperatures appearing to level off.  But, that appearance is an illusion, as this interesting article explains.

In this case I have left long gaps in this meaty article, but provide the link to the complete article.

SkS: “Poor Pielke Analysis”. . . Dear Dr. Pielke can you explain?

Here’s a case in point and a worthy addition to this little collection.  ;-)

Contrarian-skeptics {as opposed to Informed-skeptics} are slippery fish to catch, but if you don’t mind my saying so, I think I caught a floppy one yesterday.

I was reading 
Lessons from Past Predictions: Vinnikov on Arctic Sea Ice
Posted on April 27, 2012 by dana1981 over at

Quite the interesting read ~ basically examining an Arctic Sea Ice study from way back in 1999 by Vinnikov. et al. and explaining the evolving science and incoming data through the lens of Vinnikov’s models and projections.  Anyone interested in better understanding the conflicting claims regarding the future of Arctic Sea Ice owes it to themselves to familiarize themselves with this article and Vinnekov’s work.
Well, I got to the section “Poor Pielke Analysis” and find this gem:
