A climate alarmist named Tim Palmer gave a talk about chaos and global warming at the Perimeter Institute For Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada.
The talk was even discussed in The National Post – most actual physics talks at the PI surely don't enjoy this luxury.
He's an okay speaker but the content was very problematic. At the beginning (around 20:00) he started with a good question someone posed to him:
At the Perimeter, people are used to talks about quarks and strings. So why would they listen to a monologue about the climate alarmism junk?The correct answer is, of course:
The climate alarmists are so shameless that they want to penetrate into every institution and every secret room of yours. And the Perimeter Institute contains lots of extreme leftists who are shameless enough to embrace any fashionable left-wing fad and claim that it's theoretical physics.Tim Palmer's answer was:
The climate alarmism is a big problem in theoretical physics as I will convince you.Well, it's not. But he got a big applause for this sentence, strengthening my own explanation above.
