Facebook Fake Experts vs Clintel's scientists

A member (Stein Roger Nybakke) of our Australian Climate Sceptic Facebook group posted a link to the Clintel.nl pages (link). This was rated false by Climatefeedback.org.

As should be realised, science is not rated by numbers. The story of Professor Barry Marshall bucking against all "scientific" opinion re gastric and peptic ulcers and winning a Noble prize should warn people.

A bit of background on Climatefeedback.org revealed the "experts?"
Amber Kerr Researcher, Agricultural Sustainability Institute, University of California, DavisExpertise: Agricultural impacts of climate change, Ecosystem-climate feedbacks, Land use change and forestry, Societal adaptation
Note: Her expertise relies on impacts of climate change. Her only published paper (link) contains the following (inter alia):
  • Increasing global temperatures are likely to have major impacts on agriculture;
  • We used literature synthesis to create several sensitivity indices;
  • To estimate exposure.

 48 and counting....(1 professor)

From Italy: only counting their Proffesori there are 51!
From the Netherlands, out of their 57 climate experts, there are 21 professors;
From Norway, 17 experts of which 10 are professors;

Adding professors only we get 130.

We have Sweden we have 18 climate experts including 12 professors;
Switzerland                   2-1
United Kingdomn       22-3
Australia                     75-5
Brazil                           7-3
Canada                       17-5
China                           3-2
India                            1-0
Japan                           1-1
New Zealand             14-1
Russia                          1-1
Sth Africa                   3-3
USA                          45-14

So, out of Clintel's 500+ climate experts, there are 181 professors and assistant professors; out of Climatefeedback.org  six experts there are 3 professors and assistant professors.

Do they really believe in the fraudulent 97% of scientist believe (a religious term) in the #agwFraud?

Do they really believe that their 6 scientists know more than our 500+climate experts?
If their 97% is right, they would have to come up with

Clintel #
if 3% 500
Then 1% 166.666667 0.01
So 100%= 16666.6667 1
Climatefeedback.org really need  to get another 16,667 experts to counter Clintel.nl's 500+experts.

Do they really believe that their  3 professors and assistant professors know more than our 181 professors and assistant professors?

If their 97% consensus is right, they would have to come up with
Clintel #
If 3%+ 181
Then 1% 60.3333333 0.01
So 100%= 6033.33333 1
Climatefeedback.org really need  to get another 6030 experts to counter Clintel.nl's 181 professors and assistant professors.

As noted above, as Albert Einstein once said:
No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong.”

  2. The calculations shown do not match what you are claiming. You mention ({their 6} vs {your 500}) and
    ({their 3} vs {your 173}) but the numbers 6 and 3 never appear in your calculations. So clearly, your
    calculations have nothing to do with the size of their staff.

    What your calculations ATTEMPT to show is the number of scientist needed to support the figure of 97%. The calculations in your "proof" (if they were done correctly) would have given the TOTAL number of scientists, of which your 500 or 173 would be the ones who refute (3%). You still would have to subtract your 500 or 173 from the TOTAL to represent the ones who support (97%).
    To correctly say they "really need to get another" # "experts to counter Clintel.nl's", you would have to
    subtract their staff (6 or 3) from the supporters (the 97%) to find out how many more they would need.

    Even worse, the calculations in your flawed equations are wrong! If 500 represents 3%, then
    166.6666666... would represent 1%, but you somehow came up with 133. You couldn't even get 5 ÷ 3
    right. With respect to the example using 500, your numbers 13,333 and 13,297 are both wrong. 13,333 should have been 16,667. To calculate this, you would divide your 500 by the number which represents the percentage of the ones who refute (3%). The number for 3% is 0.03, so you get 500 ÷ 0.03 ≈ 16,667. And 13,297 should have been 16,667 - 500 - 6 = 16,161 (the number of extra experts they would need to support the figure of 97%).
    Then for your example using 173, instead of using two numbers (13,333 and 13,297 in your previous
    example) you only used one (and that wasn't even done right). Your 5870 (the TOTAL scientists) should have been 173 ÷ 0.03 ≈ 5,767. And then from that, to find the supporters you get 5,767 - 173 = 5,594. And finally, of the supporters you subtract their staff to get how many more they would need 5,594 - 3 = 5,591.


    You should find another subject about which to blog. I know there's no chance in hell you will publish
    this comment in you blog, but could you at least give me some kind of response so I know you got this.
    If I was writing a blog and someone pointed out my mistakes, I would be very appreciative and want to
    thank them. From what I gather about your political orientation, I'll never hear back from you. I hope
    you prove me wrong.

  3. My email is Beavis4skin@gmail.com just in case you might actually try to respond to my comment.

  4. Oooh..You're very angry aren't you Beavis!
    How dare anyone call out this abominable hoax which you've been convinced by the UN's endless propaganda is real...
    My advice to you is to break away from the UN group think you're clearly trapped in, (if you can), then open your eyes and ears and take good look at the beautiful world around you. Then, if you still have any common sense left (which the propaganda you've probably been swallowing everyday of your morbid life) hasn't completely erased, you will wake up and realize what a blatant hoax it is and that you've been truly duped - conned. Its not supported by science its drummed into the minds of children and gullible fools with scientific jargon they don't understand with the intention of not only fooling them but to scare them witless abut a non-existent 'problem' It's obviously been very successful in unnecessarily scaring you Beavis.

    1. Yes, I am angry! However, I would argue that my post was not, because pretty much the whole thing was a calculation tutorial. It would be more accurate to say it was critical. If it had been angry, there would have been insults or at least some sarcasm. In the past, some of my posts have been angry, but I've found that anger does little to advance a point of view. A compelling argument stands on the merit of the ideas it presents. So my revised approach is to try to leave my personal feelings out my writing and to use my anger as motivation to take action. Although I think this has helped me to raise my game, there's always room for improvement. For example, even though I wouldn't say it was angry, I'd say I was a bit heavy-handed where I wrote, "Even worse, the calculations in your flawed equations are wrong!" It wasn't really necessary to use the adjectives "worse" and "flawed". Not something I would call a regret, or anything to apologize for, more like something to tweak as an improvement.
      On the other hand, to say that YOUR post is NOT angry would be a pretty tough sell. I really love how you accuse ME of being angry, and then start ranting at full throttle without missing a beat! To prove my point, I'm looking at adjectives which are "a word or phrase naming an attribute, added to or grammatically related to a noun to modify or describe it", because these are the words you used to describe me or the things that you associate with me. You used abominable, morbid, blatant, gullible and witless which are all negative and certainly not complimentary. Directing these words at me is consistent with the behavior of an angry person. You did use two positive adjectives, "good" and "beautiful", but they were not used in reference to me. As I stated earlier, I used two negative adjectives, "worse" and "flawed", but these were in reference to calculations a person made and not the person.
      If you can back up the claims you made, I'd be interested to see what you come up with.

      a word or phrase naming an attribute, added to or grammatically related to a noun to modify or describe it.


      1 formal : worthy of or causing disgust or hatred : DETESTABLE
      2 : very bad or unpleasant


      1. characterized by or appealing to an abnormal and unhealthy interest in disturbing and unpleasant subjects, especially death and disease.


      (of bad behavior) done openly and unashamedly.
      completely lacking in subtlety; very obvious.


      easily deceived or cheated.


      foolish; stupid.
      to such an extent that one cannot think clearly or rationally.
