Quote of The Day

Todays Quote comes from Global Climate Change Skeptic Denier, Roy Spencer of the University of Alabama.

Joe Romm, and Climate Progress points out what Spencer really believes his job is in regard to Climate Science, to no ones surprise Spencer reveals his core beliefs are not grounded in science, but a Republican "Wet Dream" of smaller government.

Spencer provides us with the "Quote of the Day"

Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. says:
July 5, 2011 at 5:47 AM
Nicholas, I would wager that my job has helped save our economy from the economic ravages of out-of-control environmental extremism.
I view my job a little like a legislator, supported by the taxpayer, to protect the interests of the taxpayer and to minimize the role of government.
If I and others are ultimately successful, it may well be that my job is no longer needed. Well then, that is progress. There are other things I can do.

Can you imagine the Fox News Circle Jerk that would ensue if such a comment was made by Dr. Richard Alley, or another climate specialist who would dare to put their political ideology in front of the science?

Give the entire article a read. Joe Romm does a wonderful job, as usual, tearing down the arguments of clowns like Spencer, with peer reviewed data, and just enough wit, painting a clear picture of how Denier science rhetoric is used to cloud a clear consensus of climate change empirical data.
