Climate scientist knockdown – William Gray versus James Hansen

Battle of the climate scientists - William Gray versus James Hansen.

Battle of the climate scientists - William Gray versus James Hansen.

Certainly the debate over manmade climate change and global warming can get heated at times (pun intended).  Today that went to a new level pitting William (Bill) Gray, Professor Emeritus of Colorado State University who is best known for his hurricane forecasts against James Hansen of NASA’s GISS division and devout climate change advocate.

Bill Gray has long been warning that the threat of manmade climate change is not real.  In his own words, “I am of the opinion that this is one of the greatest hoaxes ever perpetrated on the American people.  I’ve been in meteorology over 50 years. I’ve worked damn hard, and I’ve been around. My feeling is some of us older guys who’ve been around have not been asked about this. It’s sort of a baby boomer, yuppie thing.”

On the other side James Hansen has become Al Gore’s best friend thanks to his sometimes outlandish claims about the effects of global warming.  He recently warned that President Obama has ‘four years to save the world’ and was quoted as saying, “We cannot afford to put off change any longer.  We have to get on a new path within this new administration. We have only four years left for Obama to set an example to the rest of the world. America must take the lead.”

The latest battle is over the decision of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) to grant its highest award, the Rossby Research Medal, to Hansen.  In a seven page letter to the AMS titled “On The Hijacking of the American Meteorological Society,” Mr. Hansen no longer seems willing to be outshouted in the debate over global warming. 

This is great reading and very interesting debate – check out the complete article and read the letter on our Examiner.com pages!  There is also a great slideshow of the key players in the global warming debate.

    The hoax of manmade climate change is slowly being exposed despite the best efforts of those behind it. It is good to see there are some like William Gray that stand up and tell the truth.

  2. Battle of the climate scientists part 3 - Gray attacks the science | Thornton and Denver Weather News and Commentary Says:

    […] Last week we first brought to light a letter by Dr. William Gray, Professor Emeritus of Colorado Sta…, admonishing the American Meteorological Society’s decision to give its highest award to Dr. James Hansen.  Hansen is head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), an astronomer, and a very divisive figure in the global warming debate.  […]
