Al Gore and The University of Tennessee, Global Warming etc

I just want to start with I don’t like pollution more than anyone else.  I hate LA for this reason.  I don’t want to inhale it and I am a strong supporter in not polluting.

I do have issue with the man made global warming debate.  I want to say that I have not seen credible scientific evidence that man caused any kind of warming.  If warming existed, and its so close to in the noise that is a tough call, its difficult to assign a source to it.  Maybe it is man, maybe it isn’t.  The sun does vary its output that is well known so perhaps there is a connection there.

Ok now to my main point of this rant.  I heard on the news that Al Gore is getting an honorary degree from University of Tennessee…

Normally who cares, he is an alumni, a famous one and if it makes them feel better have fun with it.

I think the timing is interesting.  Its in some kind of climate science (I don’t remember how they are phrasing it but you get the point).  Given the current debate not only on the news but what I am sure is about to be in the open scientific literature given the news is this a good thing?

Is it a smart idea to give an unqualified man who takes the data he wants and ignores data he doesn’t like a degree in a science?  I say no.
