Retired NASA Physicist – Climate Change Alarmism is GIGO

NewImageFor those of you who do not know, GIGO is short for “Garbage in, garbage out.” Bad inputs always produce bad outputs. 

The “propaganda” underpinning climate alarmism is “causing tremendous political bottlenecks” that prevent government officials from “doing the right thing” on energy, said retired physicist Hal Doiron.

Doiron, who helped develop the Apollo Lunar Module’s landing dynamics software during NASA’s moon missions, criticized the Navy for “preparing for something that is unreasonable and would cost too much money” in the form of “extreme sea-level rise,” which has not been borne out by rigorous scientific study.

Models don’t agree with physical data.

“At NASA, we have a policy: You can’t make a design decision on a spacecraft or rocket that is not validated,” he said. “You don’t make critical decisions based on ‘garbage in, garbage out.’ Yet our government has been doing that with respect to climate alarm, because too many academics in universities are writing papers, drawing conclusions from models that don’t agree with physical data.”

“The scientific method requires that your hypothesis and theories be confirmed by physical data,” he said. “Computer models are not physical data, although I think many in academia don’t understand that.”

The fact that unvalidated models often don’t agree with each other should be a “big, red flag.”

Doiron is part of a group called “The Right Climate Stuff,” which includes engineers and scientists who have taken part in NASA’s most high-profile missions dating back to Apollo.
