A very strange French Warmist
His impotent fury makes one wonder if he is real
Hate speech against "deniers" is stock in trade for Warmists. It must be annoying to have your profitable racket exposed. But one Warmist appears to be pushing the envelope. A French Warmist scientist, Dr. Jean-Luc EGM Melice [Email: firstname.lastname@example.org], left racist abuse on Marc Morano's site. The comment read: "Still waiting for the hate mails from Morano, the greasy, fat, mafiosi-type, Italian immigrant asshole." I think a lot of Italians would be immediately incensed by such a deliberate attempt to offend but Marc so far has simply circulated the content to those on his mailing list, which includes me.
One of the people on the mailing list said of the Warmist: "He sure acts like a climate scientist"
Dr Luc Melice appears to be an employee of a French Oceanographic laboratory. He's on their staff list here but may be working in South Africa
The EU has fairly strict laws about hate speech so I think we may hear more about this.
I imagine that he might claim that someone stole his identity in making the comment so we might have to wait and see about that.
Incidentally, Morano was born and bred in the USA, not Italy. Not that being Italian is any disgrace, Two of the months of our year are named after Italians: July and August.
I sent a brief email to his official address above, simply asking what he thought of Marc Morano, and got a reply from his hotmail address. It's a lot of fun. I reproduce it below:
I have first to know who you are...
Are you part of that asshole Morano team?
I am going to write you in french. Please remember that french is the language of every educated gentleman.
Please also remember that your country would not exist without the help of the French. Just remember La Fayette...
Je suis français et spécialiste en modélisation du climat et des océans, êtes-vous capable de comprendre ce que j'écris?
Morano is a fat, asshole mafiosi-type italian immigrant, he has no scientific degree, he knows nothing about climate dynamics.
He gets a lot money from the oil industry to say that global warming is a hoax...
To bad, you are now in the USA, in a sacry climate change situation. We know, for instance, that you wiil have an awful drought this summer.
I hope that you will be clever enough to get rid of that Morano asshole, and that you will be able to wake-up...
Hard to educate mugs!!!
Dr. Jean-Luc EGM Melice
ps. it is easy to check my scientific peer-reviewed papers by typing "JL Melice" in google scholar.
It is also easy to check that Morano and his friends/team, like the all climate deniers, have no scientific background....
We are still waiting for hate e-mails from asshole Morano... he is an expert in that..."
I haven't reproduced above the whole of what he originally aimed at Marc Morano but there is in fact another odd thing about what our frantic Frog said. He said:
"I am also waiting for you peer-reviewed papers, asshole.
Please find one of mine:
It will take you about 1000 years to undertand it, asshole"
The amusing thing is that it is a rather good paper and seems not hard to undertand. The abstract of the paper follows:
"The variability of the earth’s obliquity is a result of the deviation of the obliquity from its main component at 41 kyr and is generated by amplitude and frequency modulation. For the last million years, the amplitude modulation of the obliquity explains 8% of the obliquity’s total variance and the frequency modulation explains 10.3%. The spectra of both the amplitude and frequency modulations display significant power at 171 and 97 kyr. The contribution of these two modulations to the variance of the insolation is evaluated. At 65°N in June, the amplitude modulation of the obliquity explains 1.3% of the variance of the insolation and the frequency modulation explains 1.6%. It is shown that the obliquity’s frequency modulation is physically questionable and could only be meaningful for its components at 41, 54, and 29 kyr taken separately"
So the paper says that nearly 3% in total of the variation in radiation received from the sun is due to variations in the earth's obliquity. In other words, he is pointing to the sun as a cause of variations in the earth's temperature, not CO2. He's actually on the side of the skeptics.
So is all the abuse an attempt to draw our attention to his paper? It was published in the year 2000 so he could be peeved that it has been overlooked.
I guess we will have to await developments.
