Of course, her first degree was a Geography BS for heaven sake.

Her PhD thesis at the University of Chicago was on the impact of sea ice and clouds on the radiation balance of the Arctic. She continued that research for a decade while serving as a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin, Purdue, and eventually Penn State.

What is her known contribution to that subject?

Ladies and gentlemen... this is one of the first attacks as recommended by skeptical science.

Next they'll attack past affiliations.

Then employment.

Then whether she's ever had a published peer-reviewed paper.

They are so petty, the warmists.

Anything to avoid actually talking "science", or religion for some.

NPR is so slick, trying to undermine in-depth criticism from an accomplished woman representing the scientific community no longer accepting the extremist rhetoric NPR has continually levied against good people. They do this because if they were to admit and apply their flaws to their dialectic, they'd find very many of their programs have actually degraded scholarship and devolved humanity.

It is time National Propaganda Radio was completely defunded and their very rich reserves confiscated by the government, because they were started as a government funded operation and any income from any source is public money.

The first quote from NPR above proves beyond doubt they are biased and degrading to scholarship. Curry is an exceptionally intelligent and relevant scholar. Attempting to degrade her input by claiming she is unbalanced is the typical Leftist garbage, that would have us believe Leftists aren't the new Fascists.

Obviously, you don't understand what Fascism is.

"We simply don't know"

But, why not do the sensible things anyway?
Carbon credits, though, are not sensible.
