Leave it to Seaver :- Obama Appoints Self-Described Homophobe and Climate Change Denier to BP Recovery Team
I left the following comment at http://leaveittoseaver.com/2010/05/17/obama-appoints-self-described-homophobe-and-climate-change-denier-to-bp-recovery-team/
I hope one day the writer will see the hyprocracy of his attitude.
What on earth has being a “climate denier” and a homophobe got to do with the mans ability to offer federal scientific and technological support to BP engineers?
Two issues here.
One is the issue of denying climate change. Scientific consensus is clearly on the side that climate change is real and caused by man. http://www.grida.no/publications/other/ipcc_tar/?src=/climate/ipcc_tar/wg1/index.htm. (for one)
Secondly, I understand the question as to what role someone’s open homophobia plays in their ability to advise on issues of science. If Katz’s open bigotry was directed towards an ethnic or racial minority, there would have been a similar reaction upon finding his writings. I appreciate and applaud the Obama Administration for engaging another expert on this issue. If Katz has a great idea on stopping the oil leak, I hope he’ll pass it on to BP executives. Meanwhile, I’m glad to see the government won’t be giving him another platform or another bullet on his CV.
Sorry old son but I personally think that your attitude also passes the boundary into bigotry.
It works both ways old son.
Before you start reading IPCC documents and believing them, I think you should check out the proof for the “Anthropogenic CO2 causes Global Warming” hypothesis (or rather lack of proof) upon which all the writing depends on . My blog may help you in that, but I warn you it may be painful for your beliefs.
