How’s That Consensus Holding Up?

STILL crumbling, situation deteriorating.

I do wonder; when will we pass the tipping point and be able to state that a majority of scientists disagree with the AGW theory? At this rate, that moment cannot be far off. Via Watts Up With That, EU Referendum has the summary of the latest blow to the cause (my emphasis):

First published by the Senate EPW blog prop. Jame Inhofe, this has it that James Hansen’s former NASA supervisor has declared himself a sceptic. Hansen, he says, has “embarrassed NASA” and “was never muzzled”, although he should have been.

Our current hero is retired senior NASA atmospheric scientist, Dr John S Theon. As Hansen’s former supervisor, he joins the rapidly growing ranks of international scientists abandoning the promotion of man-made global warming fears. “I appreciate the opportunity to add my name to those who disagree that global warming is man made,” Theon wrote to the Minority Office at the Environment and Public Works Committee on 15 January 2009. “I was, in effect, Hansen’s supervisor because I had to justify his funding, allocate his resources, and evaluate his results.”

“Hansen,” he says, “was never muzzled even though he violated NASA’s official agency position on climate forecasting (i.e., we did not know enough to forecast climate change or mankind’s effect on it).” He thus embarrassed NASA “by coming out with his claims of global warming in 1988 in his testimony before Congress.”

Theon is also declaring “climate models are useless.”
