  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Dr. Roy Spencer’s Credentials

Posted by rightwinger on July 25, 2008

Roy W. Spencer received his Ph.D. in meteorology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1981. Before becoming a Principal Research Scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville in 2001, he was a Senior Scientist for Climate Studies at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, where he and Dr. John Christy received NASA’s Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal for their global temperature monitoring work with satellites. Dr. Spencer is the U.S. Science Team leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer flying on NASA’s Aqua satellite. His research has been entirely supported by U.S. government agencies: NASA, NOAA, and DOE.

Please check out his web site.

I have common sense. Anyone that thinks putting contraptions on cows to stop their normal digestion process will save the planet is a kook.

Al Gore is profiting from this Global Warming bunk. Carbon credits are the pet rock of today. Pollute all you want, but its ok just buy carbon credits from Al Gore and his companies. You don’t think he has an agenda??? Talk about corrupt.

Read the article for yourself.

James Hansen, Director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS ) taking big bucks from the left. You think he doesn’t have an agenda??? He’s bought and paid for by Soros.

James Hansen, Director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS)….Hansen now seems to be calling for the chief executives of Big Oil to be tried for high crimes against humanity. Their crime? Spreading doubt about global warming.

Actually, it is Hansen who is guilty. Guilty of abusing the public trust. Examine the largess culled by Hansen.

In 2001, the Heinz Foundation “awarded” James Hansen with a payment of $250,000 for his work on global warming. According to the foundation: “It was Dr. Hansen who, in the sweltering, drought-scorched summer of 1988, went where few scientists were willing to go-before Congress, to explain just how serious the potential for global warming truly was.” The Heinz Foundation, directed by the wife of U.S. Senator and former presidential candidate, John Kerry, is widely known for its support of liberal causes. Is it any surprise that James Hansen also endorsed John Kerry for President in 2004? The quarter of a million was just a tease of additional monies to come.

In 2007, Hansen split a $1 million prize from the Dan David prize category of “Future Quest for Energy” (layman’s translation: a world without oil). In addition he also reported to have acted as a consultant to Gore’s global whining slide show, which was the impetus to the Prince of Peace’s film, “An Inconvenient Truth.” In fact, in 2006 Hansen had the gall to appear on a New York City stage with Mr. Gore to promote the then upcoming film-though he did reportedly inform the audience, “I’m not speaking as a government employee.”

Topping it all, Hansen has allegedly received hundreds of thousands of additional dollars to further politicize the issue of global warming. According to Investors Business Daily, “How many people, for instance, know that James Hansen, a man billed as a lonely ‘NASA whistleblower’ standing up to the mighty U.S. government, was really funded by [George] Soros’ Open Society Institute (OSI), which gave him ‘legal and media advice’? That’s right, Hansen was packaged for the media by Soros’ flagship ‘philanthropy’ by as much as $720,000, most likely under the OSI’s ‘politicization of science’ program.” Hansen denied any relationship with OSI, but Investor’s Business Daily refused to back off on their story, “claiming the funding first passed through the Government Accountability Project, which then used it to package Hansen for the media.”

One Response to “Dr. Roy Spencer’s Credentials”

  1. “His research has been entirely supported by U.S. government agencies: NASA, NOAA, and DOE.’

    Yeah, right.
    Except for the teeny, weeny part where he denies that man-made global warming is happening.

    Yet please. Don’t take my word for it.
    Check out the NASA website or the NOAA website or any web-site you like of any scientific community on the planet. They’ll all tell you the same thing.
    There is a scientific consensus on global warming.

    Why not contact your local university science department today?
    Ask them.

    Caller: “You is a scientist?”
    Scientist’ “Yes? Can I help you?”
    Caller:”What’s your university’s position thingy on global warming? It’s all a lefty hoax, right?”
    Scientist: ” Wha..? Er, no. Who told you that?”
    Caller: “The media. Obscure web-sites. The guy down at the 7-11″
    Scientist:” Oh…..(???)…… That’s very unfortunate. Look, we’ve been gathering the evidence on this and forming a consensus for the last thirty or forty years now. The fat lady has sung.”
    Caller: “How do I know that you’re not durn lyin’ to me? Maybe you’re part of a commie conspiracy that wants to destroy America?”
    Scientist: ” Well, if I’m part of a conspiracy then…it’s a conspiracy of global proportions.
    Please, go ahead and contact any university you like on the planet. Test how big this “conspiracy” really is for yourself. I hardly think it’s likely that a conspiracy would work on that scale, do you? There’s an old Italian saying…”Two men can keep a secret if one of them is dead”.

    Caller: …click….
