The Dunning-Kruger effect and the climate scum

Some of you may have heard about the Dunning-Kruger effect. Dunning-Kruger was a psychologist who discovered that "people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it." I will restate that in plain language so you dear reader can understand it: morons tend to believe that they are right.

The Dunning-Kruger effect can be observed on a massive scale in the climate debate. The warmists are so sure they are right, but they are wrong. This is an undisputable expression for the Dunning-Kruger effect (and for their hatred for mankind). We humble skeptics, on the other hand, claim that we don’t know anything about how the climate works, and that it is hubris to think that our diminutive emissions of a trace gas can control the climate. We are competent and our metacognitive abilities are excellent.

Al’Gore, the climate terrorist, believes he knows everything about the climate. He has even made a movie about it, called An Inconvenient Truth. The movie was so riddled with lies that he got sentenced to prison in England (see photographic evidence above). Unfortunately, he managed to escape, probably by bribing the prison guards with his “carbon tax” billions. But does in really make sense to believe more in the slick politician Al’Gore than in the founder of the Weather Channel, distinguished TV meteorologist John Coleman? This is what the experienced weather expert John Coleman has to say:

"Does carbon dioxide cause a warming of the atmosphere? The proponents of global warming pin their whole piece on that, The compound carbon dioxide makes up only 38 out of every 100,000 particles in the atmosphere. That's about twice as what there were in the atmosphere in the time we started burning fossil fuels, so it's gone up, but it's still a tiny compound. So how can that tiny trace compound have such a significant effect on temperature? My position is it can't. It doesn't, and the whole case for global warming is based on a fallacy."

I couldn’t have said it any better myself. But does Al’Gore listen to Colemann? No, Al’Gore continues to believe in his own global warming fraud instead. Al’Gore is a veritable poster boy for the Dunning-Kruger effect. And he thinks he won the American election 2000 as well. His incompetence robs him of the metacognitive ability to understand he is wrong! We’ll see what the court says when Colemann and 30,000 other top scientists sue Al’Gore! Then he'll go to prison again!

The so-called “climate scientists” in their ivory towers, playing with their computer games … sorry models, are also convinced they are right. I’m talking about Mann and Hansen and Jones and the rest of the CRU cabal. What do they know about the lives of real people? What do they know about real climates? Not a jota. Trust me, not a jota. The average Joe Sixpack, who is out there in the sun or the rain or the snow everyday, carrying my golf clubs, knows a hundred times more about the climate than the scientists in their ivory lab coats do! Still the latter want to control every aspect of our lives. They are truly Dunning-Kruger sufferers, and the rest of us will also suffer in the most gruesome manners if we listen to them!
So the next time somebody tells you that we all have to stop living in order to prevent Earth from warming, you can respond: "You only say that because of the Dunning-Kruger effect! You are wrong but your incompetence robs you of the metacognitive ability to realize it!" And if you find it hard to remember that sentence, then you can write it down on a piece of paper.
Aliquando et insanire jucundum est!


  1. Bovina sancta!

  2. I assume this is a satire for the benefit of the deniers... you almost had me going there for a second.

  3. I believe it's common knowledge that many of the scientists employed by the ICCCP's Working Groups suffer from the Dunning-Kruger effect.

    Indeed, there's probably evidence it's a qualification.

  4. But... couldn't /you/ be demonstrating the Dunning-Kruger effect right now by assuming that doubling the amount of CO2 /can't/ affect the temperature? After all, it is the majority of climate scientists who argue that the Earth is warming.
