So we should all be grateful to coal burning power stations, gas guzzlers, oil fired central heating and the like, for stopping our planet from cooling.
If you don't like the heat, move closer to one of the poles.
If you don't like the cold, do as I did, move closer to the equator.
It's called adaptation.
The mentioned ways of burning certainly warms Earth, & by much more than btus. Of course, people who breathe the emissions from such, prematurely die. & those that die are more likely the working poor, who have coal & gas-fired electrical production burners & chimneys, placed upwind from them.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. The Earth warms & people die..... cooling off rapidly. But that is not the concern of 'steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling', who is a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig.

Then he must be a she since witches are female. The male version is called a warlock.

And of course Obama floats, he is full of hot air. Wanna bet Rush Limbaugh floats for the same reason. I be willing to bet that you float quite well.

"The word "warlock" is an antiquarian term that means "truth twister" or "liar". According to Wicca, it refers to a male witch who has betrayed his coven and been cast or "locked" out as a result. In today's witchcraft there is no special term to denote a male member of the coven. So a male witch, like a female, is simply called a "witch."

Your speculation is confirmed. I just had to find out what the verdict was. And the verdict was that he did nothing wrong.

And yes, the complaint was from another employee based on his 'global warming creds'. The truth was irrelevant to the complaint which was just 'mud slinging'.

Anybody that reads Earthling's posts knows that Earthling is an idiot. Monnett is a scientist and quite a respected one. And he did nothing wrong scientifically. I wouldn't put much credence in the posts of the Dirtling troll. He just talks to hear the sound of his voice.

Stage 4: Deny We can Solve It

In his editorial, Roy Spencer bounced between the second and fourth stages of global warming denial, also claiming that solving the problem is too expensive and will hurt the poor. In reality the opposite is true.

Spencer specifically attacked renewable energy like wind power as being too expensive. In reality, wind power is already cheaper than coal, even without considering the added climate damage costs from coal carbon emissions. When including those very real costs, solar power is also already cheaper than coal. Additionally, the poorest countries are generally the most vulnerable to climate change. Listening to Spencer and continuing to cause rapid climate change is what will really hurt the poor.

Once slow moving, GW is speeding up! That is more proof CO2 is guilty of causing GW.

Monnet does science a favour and retires.

"Well, it's over, in the sense that my relationship with the department and the federal government is over," says Monnett. "I am still a scientist. I still have some standing in the scientific community. I may continue to play a role in some fashion, particularly in the Arctic. That's yet to be seen."

"MoreFact" based on the 'close enough' scientific method:

"...the verdict was that he did nothing wrong."
-LessHypeMoreFact
Close Enough (LOL)

The reality is: There was NO verdict!!!
(much like CAGW) "the verdict" is but a figment of your imagination.

Making up imaginary stories only hurts you and your fellow evangelists.

LessFact behaves much like the rest of the climate catastrophist crusaders when defending one of their own against the heathen doubters.
