“Based upon the preponderance of the evidence the science is settled, but the thing is that anything is up for debate, Senator. We can debate,” Mair answered.

“I would note that even the phrase ‘preponderance of the evidence,’ having been a practicing lawyer for many years means 51 percent…at least 51 percent is what the preponderance means. I would ask, for example, if you want to end debate, you don’t want to address the facts, how do you address the facts that in the last eighteen years the satellite data show no demonstrable warming whatsoever?” Cruz asked.

...we have satellites, they’re measuring temperature, that should be relevant—and your answer was ‘pay no attention to your lying eyes and the numbers that the satellites show; instead listen to the scientists who are receiving massive grants who tell us do not debate the science,” Cruz added.
“Sir, I would rely upon the Union of Concerned Scientists, I would rely upon the evidence from our own NOAA officials; the data are there,” Mair responded.

“Is it correct that the satellite data over the last eighteen years demonstrate no significant warming?” Cruz asked again.

“No,” Mair responded.

“How is it incorrect?” Cruz asked.

At this point, Mair leaned back from his chair on the witness table and listened to a bespectacled aide, who whispered in his ear.

“Based upon our experts, it’s been refuted long ago, “ Mair asserted confidently. “And it’s not up for scientific debate.”

“I do find it highly interesting that the President of the Sierra Club, when asked when asked what the satellite data demonstrate about warming apparently is relying on staff. The nice thing about the satellite data is these are objective numbers,” Cruz stated.

“Correct,” Mair answered.

“Are you familiar with the phrase, ‘the pause’?” Cruz asked.

After a long pause of his own (presumably to consult with his staff), Mair responded.

“The answer is yes, and essentially, we rest on our position,” Mair said.

“To what does the phrase ‘the pause’ refer?” Cruz asked.

Once again, Mair leaned back in his chair to hear from his staff.

[...]

“Essentially it’s the slowing of global warming during the ‘40s, sir,” Mair finally responded.

“During the 40s? Is it not the term that global warming alarmists have used to explain the inconvenient truth—to use a phrase popularized by former Vice President Al Gore—that the satellite date over the last eighteen years demonstrate no significant warming whatsoever? Global warming alarmists call that the pause because the computer models say there should be dramatic warming, and yet the actual satellites taking the measurements don’t show any significant warming,” Cruz asked.

“But Senator, 97 percent of the scientists concur and agree that there is global warming. Anthropogenic impact with regards to global warming.” Mair began. (emphasis added)

“The problem with that particular statistic, which gets cited a lot,” Cruz said, “is it’s based on one bogus study, and indeed your response…is quite striking. I asked about the science and the evidence, the actual data—we have satellites, they’re measuring temperature, that should be relevant—and your answer was ‘pay no attention to your lying eyes and the numbers that the satellites show; instead listen to the scientists who are receiving massive grants who tell us do not debate the science,” Cruz added.

Thank you Skoonj! Unfortunately, this falls under the media category "Right Wing Prop," and must never again be referred to.

I marvel at the means elitists will use to demand that we submit. I have said repeatedly it used to be a bit more difficult to convince people you could change the weather.

Perhaps the Sierra Club is having second thoughts about their affirmative action-diversity hiring decision in the position of director. This gentleman certainly doesn't fit in with the Birkenstock and turtle-neck crowd and doesn't seem very bright. 97% indeed.

Pointless to attempt to argue using data and/or logic with a retard or a true believer in ANY sort of religion.

Mair was like an old scratched vinyl LP:
"97 percent... click... 97 percent... click... stuck on stupid... click... stuck on stupid... stuck on stupid....
Anybody else want to bitch slap that Mair guy about half way through?

There are a number of videos on the web of Cruz mixing it up with adversaries. The only sane tactic for his opponent is to fake a sudden heart attack and go for the sympathy vote.

Do you suppose that it hurts to be that stupid?
