Well, the testimony of Pielke Sr. — a complex argument delivered in lightning speed — would have been nearly unintelligible to any non-scientist. A lesson in what not to do when you have five minutes to talk to members of Congress.
Zwiers on the other hand spelled out the link between global warming and extreme weather very well. His written testimony is very good. I might do a separate post on it.
Donald Roberts DDT testimony — and his effort to connect his narrow knowledge base to the broader issue — gets a #FAIL. Debunked here.
I’ll do some live blogging. I’ll also put some of the best comments here (and elsewhere) in the body of the post.
You can watch NASA’s Gavin Schmidt live-blog here. But you’d have to put up with Pielke Jr.’s comments.
