Stanford prof helps Gore in Oscar quest?

Steven Schneider of Stanford, who suggested a link between the warm temperatures in the Northeast in Jan. 07 and global warming, may have helped Al Gore in his quest for an Oscar. A report by Patrick J. Michaels notes:

Nowhere in the traditionally refereed scientific literature do we find any support for Gore’s hypothesis. Instead, there’s an unrefereed editorial by NASA climate firebrand James E. Hansen, in the journal Climate Change — edited by Steven Schneider, of Stanford University, who said in 1989 that scientists had to choose "the right balance between being effective and honest" about global warming — and a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that was only reviewed by one person, chosen by the author, again Dr. Hansen.

A different Stanford professor, Laurence Baker, co-authored an article BEFORE the vote on Proposition 71, which article suggested that California voters would receive significant patent royalties from their $3 billion investment. Now, it seems that prediction has become inoperative.

January 07 was right in the middle of the warmest winter ever recorded on the planet.

Read about it even on Fox:,2933,259065,00.html

Will you issue a mea culpa for your post ridiculing Gore et al?
