The official position of the American Meteorological Society is that the Sun does not create Earth’s weather or climate. I present to you direct quotes and statements gathered during peer-review with the AMS and from the Bulletins of the AMS editorial board that their position is that the Sun *does not* create our climate on Earth!
Follow up: I did receive a reply from the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society’s journal editor, about my request for reconsideration. This is his reply:
“After again reading your manuscript and the reviewers’ comments, I do not see reason to change the decision.”
Thus, the confirmed official editorial position of the AMS is that the Sun *does not* create our climate or Earth’s weather.
I have written the editor back just now with the release of this video:
“Thank you for the reply #####. Thus, I will take it as the official position of the AMS and its Bulletin’s journal that the Sun does not create the climate and meteorological phenomena on Earth, given that this was the clearly-stated position of one of the reviewers. You may be interested in watching this YouTube video where I discuss the BAMS peer-review process and what the AMS states as it official position of the Sun not being responsible for the creation of Earth’s weather and climate: [Y/T link]”
Sorry for the ling video, but I have to fill you entirely in on why I’ve been gone for so long, and what project has been developing behind the scenes. I’ve been hard at work, and you will be amazed at what I present to you in this long video.
A YouTube comment and my reply:
MH: “From The Skeptic Journal: Joseph E. Postma is a climate change denier. He uses his master’s in astrophysics to try to convince others to trust his authority. However, Postma has never been able to pass peer review in any legitimate scientific journal regarding anything he has written about climate change. The only place he has been able to post his ideas are to Principia Scientific, which is a website created by Tim Ball, a climate change denier. I also read another negative article on you in Skeptical Science – “This work makes extraordinary claims and yet no effort was made to put it in a real climate science journal since it was never intended to educate climate scientists or improve the field; it is a sham, intended only to confuse casual readers and provide a citation on blogs. The author should be ashamed.”
Firstly, I have never told others that they must “trust my authority” just because I have a degree in astrophysics. I barely ever mention it. What I do, however, is try to explain things so that anyone can understand what is going on. On the other hand, we can see the classical case of psychological projection here: THEY are the ones who berate everybody and everyone with their “consensus of experts”, their “degrees in meteorology”, etc., and that we should only listen to them because they’re the experts and we should dismiss ANY and ALL critics. The alarmists are the ones who berate everyone into trusting their authority!
Secondly, we have now all witnessed what happens when an “outsider” to the field of climate science attempts to publish something in climate science as innocuous as pointing out the simple fact that the Sun heats the Earth, and creates Earth’s weather. The climate/meteorology journal, the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, had to take the position, such as to reject the paper, that the Sun does not heat the Earth or create Earth’s weather! They had to take this insane position in order to protect their political interpretation of the weather, to protect their fake greenhouse effect from being exposed as being based in flat-Earth pseudoscience. I, Joe, should be ashamed? Get bent. The climate science scam is itself utterly shameless…now exposed as being utter quack-science with a fake and ridiculous “peer-review” journal process.
