Default Another scientist departs from the AGW gravy train

Another AGW scientist "comes out of the closet" on AGW.

Anthropogenic Global Warming is false science former "alarmist" scientist says

David Evans is a scientist. He also has worked in the heart of the AGW machine and consulted full-time for the Australian Greenhouse Office (now the Department of Climate Change) from 1999 to 2005, and part-time 2008 to 2010, modeling Australia’s carbon in plants, debris, mulch, soils, and forestry and agricultural products. He has six university degrees, including a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University.

The debate about global warming has reached ridiculous proportions and is full of micro-thin half-truths and misunderstandings. I am a scientist who was on the carbon gravy train, understands the evidence, was once an alarmist, but am now a skeptic.

Wow..Evans ? Looks like he decided he's a true scientist after all.

From your link..the key between science and politics..politics always has a way of corrupting:

"In science, empirical evidence always trumps theory, no matter how much you are in love with the theory. If theory and evidence disagree, real scientists scrap the theory."

And now we have a grand total of a handful of Scientists challenging the theory of Global Warming, versus the rest of the Scientific community.

You do understand that in science there are always a few researchers with opposing views.....that's the nature of science......and how it works.

And it does NOT prove anything except you attempting to fuel your agenda by quoting one, of a very small number of scientists, who do not agree with the theory of Global Warming.

In the Scientific literature the theory is accepted as basically accurate and like any theory will be refined as we increase our knowledge base....TRY AGAIN!

He should atone for his sins by purchasing one of Al Gore's carbon indulgences.

Billions wasted on garbage science.

When I glanced at the title I thought it said Wavy Gravy Train.

Science can never be proven..only disproven.
Skeptics are welcome in science because questioning a theory either breaks it or strengthens it.

It's a lot more than a "handful." Not counting those who don't want to admit it.

Wow. What a dummy. Where will he get his money now????? Nobody pays scientists that are not alarmists.

Yup. I've repeatedly mentioned that as someone who siphons taxpayer money vis-a-vis government funded projects, we must present a feeling of doom and gloom for the educational community if our work isn't allowed to move forward. IMO, it's actually bulls**t, but I gotta get my degree somehow.
