I got my package from Access To Energy today, or the Oregon Institute for Science and Medicine, or whatever they've been calling themselves lately. If the names don't ring a bell, these are the guys behind the Oregon Petition, a petition signed by 20,000 or so "scientists" opposed to the Global Warming consensus that circulated during the late 1990s. Some of these scientists included Perry Mason and Dr. Geri Halliwell.
Well, the Oregon Petition is back, and I have joined those brave dissenters against the U.N. greenshirts led by that fat enviro-bastard Al Gore.
Here's how I did it. I contacted A. Robinson (by mail) when I heard the petition was up and running again, and told him that I was professional statistician, which is true in the same sense that the manager of your local McDonald's is a professional chef. I told him that I was appalled at the deterioration of the Scientific Method in the hands of Climate Scientists, and in particular complained about the promiscuous employment of "cubic spleens", which I referenced to a paper I found on a website--some glacier guy (2004), I think it was.
(I should say that although I was previously aware that "cubic spleens" were a form of statistical filter, when I googled them afterwards I was surprised that they were not at all boxlike in shape, so the whole "cubic" thing eludes me. Furthermore, they only come in black and gray. Very disappointing.)
And yesterday morning my package finally arrived!
And I'll tell you something, its a sweet looking package. The only thing missing is a picture of a half naked girl signing the petition, which would convey the impression that if you signed you might possibly get laid, which would carry a lot of weight with scientists (be honest, nerdlingers).
In any case, its got graphs and footnotes and the whole shebang. You science guys are going to get your ass kicked until you start publishing on glossy paper.
And the best part is, I can send for more packages and petition cards, so I can give them to all my dissident scientist friends, like my buddy professor Von Dickenstein.
I Refute You, Al Gore! I Refute You!
