(Natural News) President Trump recently appointed David Legates, a renowned climatologist and professor at the University of Delaware, to the esteemed position of Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Environmental Observation and Prediction at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a decision that sent at least one deranged liberal woman into an absolute tailspin.
Upset that Legates does not buy into the far-left “climate change” narrative hook, line and sinker, the woman decided to call the man, not once, but twice, to leave nasty voicemails, in which she lamented and quite literally screamed in agony that he should not be working at the NOAA, in her opinion.
Believing Legates to be a climate “denier” – we checked and it turns out Legates does, in fact, believe that the climate exists – the woman became irate when confronted with the reality that, based on his expertise, Legates does not believe that man-made climate change, at least in the way that leftists believe in it, passes scientific muster.
“You! Don’t you dare have anything to do with NOAA!” the 78-year-old woman bellowed into her phone. “Somebody that doesn’t believe in climate change? Sir, I’m frankly sick about this,” she went on to whine.
The woman then proceeded to fat-shame Legates, howling at him to “Lose some weight! You’re fat!”
“But worse than that,” she added, “you’re stupid, and you have become part of the stupid, stupid president, evil climate change denier … I’m just about to call my friend who lives in Oregon who fears that her house will burn down … you are an evil, disgusting man and you will hear more from me. Shame on you and lose the weight.”
Climate “science” is more of a climate religion
In a follow-up voicemail message, this same deranged woman went on another tirade, introducing her second round of dramatics with an exasperated plea and the questions: “Do you not believe that the climate is falling apart? Did you look at what’s going on in the West Coast on climate change? Are you against the scientific opinion that climate change exists?”
She proceeded to emphasize a second time that she is 78 years old, which apparently makes her viewpoints more valid than those of people who are younger than her, as well as reiterate that she is a “multi-millionaire.”
“I built a big company and I know good and I know bad, and I think your going in to head up NOAA is very, very bad. And when I decide something is very bad, I know as a citizen I have a right to express my opinion,” she further ranted, threatening to call Legates repeatedly for as long as it takes to get him to quit.
As it turns out, Legates is one of only a few real climate scientists who, like real scientists of old, actually questions basic, “and even not-so-basic,” as William M. Briggs puts it, tenets of science. This is how legitimate science develops, improves, and becomes better over time.
“All that has, of course, changed for the better,” Briggs writes sarcastically about how the new model, especially for climate science, is to rely on political agendas that can never be questioned.
“One has to admit that this change makes doing science much easier,” he adds, jokingly. “Used to take years, even decades, of gruesome and mostly vain toil to ferret out flubs in theories, and even longer to discover fixes. Now all we have to do is check with the press and we know all the right answers.”
We will keep you posted if we hear of any more angry phone calls being left for Legates by the angry climate fanatic.
