    Shellenberger - a celebrated HERO in the Climate Community -- not only apologized for the Decades of Climate Fraud - he simultaneously Debunked EVERY major Leftist Climate LIE. No surprise they're coming after him.
 They can't have their fraud joke 'science' exposed...

    Shellenberger admits that though he has known the truth for some time,

    he kept quiet till last year because he was ‘afraid of losing friends

    and funding’.

    And there you have it...loss of funding. The main reason why these clowns have been promulgating this nonsense for decades...the money.

    So...the next thing he says in that article is "Climate change is happening."

    It is certainly true that "climate activists" have exaggerated the time scale on which bad things will happen as a result of our induced changes to the atmosphere, and it is certainly true that these things are not certain --- no prediction about a complex, somewhat chaotic system can be certain.  But the IPCC never exaggerated.  If you look at the IPCC reports from decades ago, their predictions for 2020 have come true --- and things are still getting worse and could continue to get worse for centuries (although with warming, some changes will be beneficial for the next half-century or so).  It was a bad thing that some "activists" with a leftist agenda, who are not scientists and who never understood the complexities of the climate predictions, exaggerated the speed of the global warming phenomenon --- it gives right-wing deniers a chance to produce propaganda like this, a "polar bears are not dying like those lefties said they would" article.  The danger will play out over hundreds of years, and is a bad fit to the news cycle.

    The truth remains: CO2 levels in the Earth's atmophere are still going up and there is a real POSSIBILITY of existential danger to life on Earth if we don't stop burning fossil fuels.

    I prefer to listen to the science than activists, but yes, I don't mind wheeling him out only to be embarrassed by a 16 year old Swedish girl like all the other chumps who've tried

    Prominent, you say? Never heard of him. How does this development change the atmospheric heat balance?
