They SAY that They Like Consensus
Don Easterbrook is a professor emeritus of geology and earth science at Western Washington University. He has authored 8 books and close to 150 research papers. He is a political independent, environmentalist, and has never taken a penny from big oil. Professor Easterbrook did an exhaustive search of the georef database and ultimately came up with these numbers. There have been 485 (as of 2010) articles on the Medieval Warm Period in which it was stated that the episode was real, global, and at least as warm as what we're experiencing today. The fellow also found over 1,400 articles which likewise authenticated the reality and global nature of the Little Ice Age. These global warming people assert that they like consensus, but on this one they instead put all of their stock in the data of a newcomer who damn near committed every error in the manual and whose hockey stick graph literally made most geologists laugh. Boy, has the scientific enterprise ever deteriorated of late.
