Bob Armstrong

Bob Armstrong spent the ’70s studying visual psychophysics at Northwestern University, the last several years hanging out with the math and computer people. He learned APL, array programming language, synergistically with multidimensional algebra whose notation it generalizes and makes interactively executable. The truism that the most valuable numbers to crunch are ones with currency symbols attached led Bob to move east for such jobs as rewriting Xerox’s relational global forecasting system and RG&E’s modeling system used for justifying their rates to New York State, all in APL.

Bob spent the next 20 years in Lower Manhattan before changing his view of the Brooklyn Bridge for Pikes Peak. Being offended by the amateurish level of math and physics he saw in the AGW debates, he implemented the basic equations of radiative balance which form the nub of any planetary model in a handful of APL definitions. Even these show that such memes as Hansen’s claim that Venus is an example of a runaway greenhouse don’t compute. He contends that a rather detailed model of the planet can be written in a few pages of succinct APL definitions far more scrutable than the million line FORTRAN programs still used by climate scientists.

Russell Cook

Russell Cook prefers to be defined as a common citizen, familiar enough with the global warming issue to spot contradictory political narratives within it.

In 2008, he was concerned about implementations of greenhouse gas regulations which ignored skeptic climate scientists’ assessments. In 2010, after spotting major faults in the accusation that skeptics are “paid industry shills”, he focused exclusively on that problem.

His numerous online articles detail the accusation’s myriad faults and its central promulgator, global warming alarmist book author Ross Gelbspan. Cook now writes a forensic dissection of Gelbspan’s accusation at GelbspanFiles.com.

He earned his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of New Mexico and his associate degree in graphic arts from the Al Collins School of Graphic Design.[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third]

Greenpeace featured Ebell and three of his CEI colleagues in “A Field Guide to Climate Criminals” distributed at the UN climate meeting in Montreal in December 2005.

In its November 17, 2005 issue, Rolling Stone magazine named Ebell one of six “Misleaders” on global warming, along with President George W. Bush, Senator James Inhofe, and Michael Crichton. In November 2004, as a result of a BBC Radio interview, seven members of the British House of Commons introduced a motion to censure Ebell “in the strongest possible terms.” In its May 22, 2004 special “Issues and Answers” issue, National Journal profiled Ebell as one of 10 people who would lead the global warming debate during the next presidential administration. The Clean Air Trust in March 2001 named Ebell its “Villain of the Month” for his role in convincing the Bush administration not to regulate carbon dioxide emissions.
