AGU's "Climate Change: Believe It Or Else" Prize
August 21, 2017
The American Geophysical Union (AGU) has lots of prizes; they are very fond of congratulating themselves.
One of these is the Climate Communication Prize, which is in recognition for the "communication of climate science", including "clarity of message and efforts to foster respect and understanding of science-based values". This was initially funded by Nature's Own, a company which wrenches fossils and minerals from the earth to sell to tourists.
Gavin Schmidt, current head of NASA GISS and leading climate change warrior scientist/spokesperson, won the debut prize in 2011. Interestingly, this was just after Schmidt was involved in Climategate, which showed that he wasn't so interested in communicating ALL of climate science, just those parts that were ideologically acceptable. Discussions between government-funded climate scientists were -- despite laws to the contrary -- not to be communicated to the public because the public was too stupid to understand them. Schmidt continues to scheme to keep this secrecy, again, despite laws to the contrary.
