Experiment Gone Haywire

Global Warming Hoax

     Every Friday afternoon, all three professors—Wishbone, Wisestien and Wisenheirmer—have lunch together at one of the local restaurants in Silicon Valley. On some occasions they may invite a few research assistants and associates. At these informal luncheons they will strive to maintain neutrality by putting their differences aside.

     During one recent gathering, Professor Wisestien introduced a FOX News article that he displayed on his laptop. The news story from December 30, 2013 read, “‘Stuck in our own experiment’: Leader of trapped team insists polar ice is melting” Wisestien’s main objective was to probe the others for their take on the controversial subject of Global Warming. Below is the photo and caption from the article:

     To Wisestien’s surprise, they all agreed that all the hype about Global Warming was nothing more than a political hoax meant to hoodwink the American public. He stated, “Those fake scientist went down under to prove Global warming to be a fact. Weren’t they in for a big surprise? They would have done better to look for Santa up in the Arctic.”

     Wishbone: “Yeah I heard they sent several ice breakers down there to lead ’em out. Then, they also got stuck.”

     Wisenheirmer: “Well, they spent Christmas and New Year’s Eve hunkered down in zero below weather. I betcha they still maintain their Global Warming hypothesis. The jerks.”

     Johnny, a research associate interjected, “I heard they and other adherents modified their hypothesis to Climate Change. Now ain’t that clever?”

     Wishbone: “Why not? It provides them a way out; because Climate Change is all inclusive. It covers the whole gambit. The knuckle heads insist that global climate change is actually much more complicated because a change in the temperature can cause changes in other weather elements such as clouds or precipitation. Thus, their song and dance for being hemmed up down in the Antarctic.”

     Wisestien: “I’d say we all agree that this is an example of sloppy science. It’s an embarrassment to all of us here, and all genuine scientist in the field of climatology and associated disciplines, such as meteorology. Obviously, our objective at the Berean Institute is to teach legit science and expose bogus research outcomes, such as this.”

     Before the luncheon was dismissed, Wisestien displayed the following animation on his laptop, showing monthly global images from the NASA Earth Observatory of the Northern Hemisphere. He stated, “This is all there is to climate change—the normal yearly cycle that has existed for ages.”

     One more thing professor Wisenheirmer asserted, “The effect of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by man on heating the earth, has no more effect than a gnat on an elephant’s butt.”
