Jeb Bush Has the Gall to Accuse Climate Scientists of “Intellectual Arrogance”

The “soft denialism” of Jeb Bush

Jeb Bush shows the disturbingly awful attitude of the GOP towards the most serious problem the human race has ever faced; in his latest statement on climate change he has the absolute gall to accuse the climate science community of “intellectual arrogance.”

As he has before, Bush acknowledged “the climate is changing” but stressed that it’s unknown why. “I don’t think the science is clear of what percentage is man-made and what percentage is natural. It’s convoluted,” he said at a house party in Bedford, New Hampshire.

“For the people to say the science is decided on this is really arrogant, to be honest with you,” he continued. “It’s this intellectual arrogance that now you can’t have a conversation about it, even. The climate is changing. We need to adapt to that reality.”

The persecution complex is in full view here, because nobody’s stopping Jeb Bush from “having a conversation” about climate change at all. Here he is on CNN, in front of millions of people, complaining he’s not being allowed to speak. Please. His line about “intellectual arrogance” is obviously carefully designed to pander to the anti-science Republican base, who don’t trust science or scientists.

But Bush’s “soft denialism” is even more insidious than outright denialism. He’s trying to sound more reasonable than most of his colleagues, but in fact his idea of policy leads to the same place: doing nothing.

As I mentioned in my Page to a comment Skip made, the argument reeks of creationist views of the fossil and geological records. Scientific evidence is scientific arrogance. uh huh.

re: #9 Great White Snark

That’s right, those uppity scientists keep trying to push evolution upon us:

Ancient Wolf Genome Reveals an Early Divergence of Domestic Dog Ancestors and Admixture into High-Latitude Breeds

The origin of domestic dogs is poorly understood [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15], with suggested evidence of dog-like features in fossils that predate the Last Glacial Maximum [6, 9, 10, 14 and 16] conflicting with genetic estimates of a more recent divergence between dogs and worldwide wolf populations [13, 15, 17, 18 and 19]. Here, we present a draft genome sequence from a 35,000-year-old wolf from the Taimyr Peninsula in northern Siberia. We find that this individual belonged to a population that diverged from the common ancestor of present-day wolves and dogs very close in time to the appearance of the domestic dog lineage. We use the directly dated ancient wolf genome to recalibrate the molecular timescale of wolves and dogs and find that the mutation rate is substantially slower than assumed by most previous studies, suggesting that the ancestors of dogs were separated from present-day wolves before the Last Glacial Maximum. We also find evidence of introgression from the archaic Taimyr wolf lineage into present-day dog breeds from northeast Siberia and Greenland, contributing between 1.4% and 27.3% of their ancestry. This demonstrates that the ancestry of present-day dogs is derived from multiple regional wolf populations.

Speaking of ignorant and dishonest, the latest installment of Freeper Madness offers some remarkable examples even for them.

Canada lands second strike on ISIL in Syria

Canadian fighter jets landed their second airstrike on an ISIL compound in Syria on Wednesday, according to the Department of National Defence.

Defence Minister Jason Kenney said in a statement that two CF-18 Hornet aircrafts led an aerial assault on an ISIL “staging area” north of Ar-Raqqah, a city in northern Syria.

All well and good, but the standard freeper position is that this literally outweighs the entire US effort. The more radical believe it opposes Obama, since he is alleged to be aiding ISIL rather than sending our own planes to bomb them.

Glad to see that the Canucks are takin’ care of business while our Ambulance Chaser-In-Chief is secretly offering ISIS “flexibility”.

Team Obama must be upset at this

Is it more or less arrogant than claiming that invading a country for all the wrong reasons will bring stability to a region?

20 freetoken  May 21, 2015 1:22:15pm

Repeating story from downstairs:

Inland ice in Antarctica melting fast

Many glaciers on the Southern Antarctic Peninsula (SAP) — a region previously thought to be stable compared to other glacier masses in Antarctica — became destabilized in 2009, and they have been melting at accelerating rates ever since, researchers say. These glaciers, which rest on bedrock that dips below sea level toward the continent’s interior, help to buttress inland ice shelves — but their structures are presumed to be unstable. Now, Bert Wouters and colleagues have combined satellite altimetry and gravity observations to show how such land-based ice has thinned over the past 12 years or so in the region. The researchers’ results suggest that ice shelves on the SAP have weakened significantly, causing marine-terminating glaciers to flow faster into the sea. Between 2002 and 2010, the mass balance of such glaciers remained around zero, according to Wouters and the other researchers. But by about 2009, glaciers on the SAP had begun to lose mass at accelerating rates, they say. Since that year, the glaciers in the region have added 300 trillion liters of water to the ocean. Today, these rapidly-melting glaciers pump out about 56 gigatons of water each year, constituting a major fraction of Antarctica’s contribution to rising sea level. Based on their results, the researchers suggest that warming ocean currents are the likely culprit; changes in the wind circulation around Antarctica have increased the flow of warm subsurface waters from the deep ocean to the coastal zones, melting the ice shelves and glaciers from below.

Today Mooney reflects on National Center for Science Education’s Josh Rosenau post from last week:

The surprising links between faith and evolution and climate denial — charted

Rosenau’s post:

ncse.com

And his graph:

I doubt the links are as mysterious as Mooney is trying to make them out to be. Perhaps WaPo doesn’t want to really get into the problems with religious thought, but there is a great deal of churn about modernity and science among any religious group that is high on magick.

I think Rosenau’s graph may be a bit misleading because nominal religious identification is not the same as religious practice. Someone may identify as “Jew” or “Catholic” out a sense of wanting to belong to a community rather than embrace the historic beliefs. Contrast to say the raving Pentecostal who is on some sort of religious trip.
