IPCC author and climate change expert hits "skeptics" hard

In a Calgary Sun column today, noted atmospheric scientist and IPCC author, Dr. Andrew Weaver, slams the so-called climate change “skeptics.” “The enduring debate – such as it is, particularly in Alberta – over the role humans play in global warming – is so divorced from scientific literature as to be a discourse from a distant age or orbit,” says Weaver. And Weaver should know, with over 150 peer-reviewed research papers published and the title of Canada Research Chair in Climate Modeling and Analysis.

And what about notorious Canadian climate change “skeptic” Dr. Tim Ball ? Weaver says “these adversaries of scientific knowledge haven’t had a peer-reviewed paper published in memory, and, “I’ve never seen Tim Ball at any climate meeting … I don’t why people go to him,” he says. “I’d say to him: ‘why don’t you publish your science?’”

This has been DeSmog’s point all along. Let the scientists do their science and let the weight of evidence speak for itself. If Dr. Ball and others want to disprove human-caused global warming, then stop doing PR and get into a laboratory and prove your hypotheses.
