#4: Chris Allen


Next up, great American loon #4 - Chris Allen.

Not to be confused with several other people of the same name, this Chris Allen is a weatherman at the FOX-affiliated TV station in Bowling Green, Ky.

Why is this Chris Allen considered prominent enough to earn a spot in the Encyclopedia? Well, the ever reliably insane and dishonest Senator James Inhofe included Allen on his infamous list of “700 prominent scientists who deny global warming”. So he MUST be prominent, right?

Chris Allen holds no college degree but does have a blog, referred to by Inhofe as “his scientific writings”. Allen rejects anthropogenic global warming (AGW) on the grounds that it contradicts the Bible, and he complains that AGW “completely takes God out of the picture”.

Ed Brayton has the story: http://scienceblogs.com/dispatches/2009/04/inhofes_list_of_prominent_scie.php

Diagnosis: Complete nutjob and wingnut; probably harmless.

  1. yep...hand it to FOX. I'm sure this man is the epitome of a brilliant scientist more than capable of proving global warming a myth strictly because GOD said it wasn't so.

  2. Well sure, from what I understand God is generally very reliable about these things.
