Death of a warmist.

Liar and warmist propagandist Stephen Schneider has died.

You might think it disrespectful to call him a liar, but in amongst some really dreadful science, that’s what he really called himself—talking in 1989 about activists like him having “to decide the right balance between being effective, and being honest.”

And it’s clear enough from the record which side of the balance he was always on.

In the words of film-maker Phelim McAleer, whose no-holds-barred obituary of this anti-industrial whack-job you really have to read, “it has to be said that Professor Schneider died as he had lived—a completely unrepentant hypocrite."


  1. Science is better off without him.

  2. Denialists are ruthless adherents to truth on the other hand. Like the Nobel Prize winning member of the House of Lords and former chief science adviser to Margaret Thatcher, Chris Monckton.

  3. Science never had him.

    Science is in danger of losing all credibility because of men like him.

  4. It was Shneider's blatant lying and scaremongering that led my researching the facts 20+ years ago. I recalled his vehement insistence on new ice age, then without saying he was wrong, insisting on heat death.
