Editor’s note: I don’t know if anyone saw this news story below about Judith Curry’s email getting hacked. Haven’t seen anyone talking about it so republishing here. Quite shocking.
CLIMATE NEWS TODAY, Washington, DC, Aug. 18 — An unknown hacker has released text messages from the iPhone of notable climatologist and climate action denier, Judith Curry. The texts appear to expose her ongoing love affair with conservative political pundit, Mark Steyn. Continue reading →
And more than that, to help smooth things over between us, I’d like to offer you free advice that can earn you tens of millions of dollars, if not a lot more, depending on how well you execute. I know this sounds crazy, but please hear me out before clicking away. I assure you this will work.
My name is Tony Heller (aka Steven Goddard). I’m a professional climate change denier and I use this blog to blow the whistle on myself and sometimes others, too.
A note from Tony: This is the fourth installment of our series on Judith Curry’s recent promotion of Mark Steyn’s book, “A Disgrace to the Profession.” For more background, please read the prologue, Episode I, and Episode II.
You never forget your first rush. It was November, 2009 and the exhilaration coursing through Judith Curry’s head surpassed anything she had ever experienced before. A hacker had just broken into a server at the Climatic Research Unit unleashing a trove of private emails from some of the world’s leading climatologists about their work on the famous hockey stick graph which proved that temperatures had risen sharply over the last 150 years. “Climategate” was born. Judith was infused with new creative energy and dove headlong into the public controversy. Reminiscing about that memorable weekend, Curry wrote:
Over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2009, in the midst of extensive email discussions with Andy Revkin and Joe Romm (!), I penned my essay An open letter to graduate students and young scientists in fields related to climate research. Which followed my essay (published at Climate Audit) On the credibility of climate research. In February 2010, I wrote an article Towards rebuilding trust. Continue reading →
In today’s episode, we continue following Curry into the seedy underbelly of the climate debate with a look at her deployment of quote mining techniques against Mann. For those unfamiliar, quote mining is the crack cocaine for deniers hoping to destroy the reputation of established climate scientists. Unlike putting your nose to the grindstone and writing a well-researched, peer-reviewed, science-based paper to prove adversaries wrong, quote mining supplies deniers like Curry with lots of fast, cheap and easy scores against opponents.

The first half of this piece covers the themes relevant to the strange fact that Congress favorite Curry harshly castigated the editor of a science journal -for writing an editorial she didn’t agree with – before going on to use effectively manipulative and inflammatory rhetoric and insinuation to impugn science journals, and almost all of science (except, naturally, climate change “skeptics”) for the piece, and even climate scientists for simply having a “scientific consensus” on climate change in the first place.
This consensus – man’s activity is relevantly impacting our long term…
Sadly, it now appears a couple of self-serving climate deniers are conspiring against me. See this conversation below with @Maximumus1901 who asked why my crackpot evidence about NOAA temperature fraud wasn’t getting more play on conservative news outlets like Fox:
@Maximus1901 @NASA @FoxNews They have, but unfortunately a couple of prominent skeptics have undermined my efforts for self-serving purposes
My name is Tony Heller (aka Steven Goddard) and I’m a professional climate change denier. I use this blog to expose my true nature. In this post, I’m going to talk about the responsibility I think other, more level-headed challengers to anthropogenic climate change have to publicly disavow my “science.”
