Legates has done the science and found that the climate alarmist narrative is plain wrong. But such is the state of our society that someone who does science and sticks to what he finds is called a heretic and someone who makes up claims that he cannot demonstrate to be true in a court case (Michael Mann hockey stick) is the hero. Drama sells, mayhem sells and the politicians, the venal science, and project developers want their money. They need you to be scared shitless as this makes you fork over the cash.
David Legates, a professor whose research has been supported by fossil fuel companies, has been hired for a top position at the federal agency that oversees weather and climate forecasting.
