Frank Tipler tells us:
Last year, Reid Bryson, the “father of climatology,” and a leading AGW skeptic, passed away. Bryson’s actual achievements are the hallmark of a genuine scientist as opposed to the work done by AGW advocates.
A true scientist demonstrates his knowledge by using it to make predictions which can be confirmed or refuted. Bryson successfully predicted, in December 1944, that the so-called “Caine Mutiny Typhoon” would hit Adm. William Halsey’s Third Fleet.
What counter-intuitive predictions have the Global Warmers ever made? I invite you to look. I myself could not find a single counter-intuitive prediction made by any major Global Warmer. But I have found cases of them trying to cover up failed predictions.
Tipler would seem to be covering up Bryson’s failed predictions about climate (rather than weather). Back in the 70s Bryson predicted global cooling. Indeed when global warming deniers claim that there was a scientific consensus in support of global cooling in the 70s, they are often referring to Bryson.
