The Climate-Weather Relationship

Joe Bastardi on climatologists’ fundamental problem.

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: “It’s laughable to think, as a private sector meteorologist whose livelihood depends on being right, that one can separate climate from weather. … Suppose someone gives you a grant to study global warming. Can you come back and say, ‘My research says there’s no global warming’? You have been given a grant to produce a result; how can you possibly justify that result if it’s the result that would cost nothing to come up with in the first place? … [Climatologists] believe the idea is the product. Destroy the idea, you destroy the product; destroy the product, you destroy the person. … The answer is the fruit of my labor, not the object of it. Because of that, you’ll look for anything to come up with the correct answer, not just a predetermined one where your self-esteem depends on it. So these giants of science have a fundamental problem, and it runs contrary to their nature. In the end, the very talent and brilliance of a lot of these people may be what blinds them to what it takes to truly pursue the truth.”
