“Hypocrisy is the essence of snobbery, but all snobbery is about the problem of belonging.”
— Alexander Theroux
Smart people continue to do stupid stuff . . . personifying the Metcalf bromide about “some people don’t want to be confused with facts that contradict their preconceived opinions or prejudices.”
Notwithstanding the Nobel Prize, Oscar, and ubiquitous fawning of the limousine liberal legions, the empirical reality is global warming is an urban myth.
Over 650 international scientists are out of the closet and articulating their dissent over the folly of manmade global warming bull excrement.

My chronic criticisms (of over a decade) are insignificant. However, others (far more credentialed and knowledgeable) are finally being heard.“It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic global warming,” says U.S Government Atmospheric scientist Stanley B. Goldenberg of the Hurricane Research Division of NOAA. “Warming fears are the worst scientific scandal in the history . . . When people come to know what the truth is; they will feel deceived by science and scientists,” reports UN IPCC Japanese scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning Ph.D. environmental physical chemist. Nobel Prize-winner for physics, Ivar Giaever, says, “Global warming has become a new religion.”
The list is long and growing.
What remains amazing is that smart people (who ought to know better) continue to enable a scientifically discredited, overwhelmingly expensive, junk science boondoggle.
California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger remains captive of liberal lieutenants to feed the Hollywood myopics fueling the gospel according to Al Gore. President-elect Barack Obama seems intent on placating his disgruntled liberal base with the way expensive bone of global warming fanaticism.
Meanwhile, “real” threats from Iran, North Korea, Russia, China, and wildcard terrorists are only exacerbated by the begrudging acknowledgement that terrorists have a major “jones” to deploy biological weapons of mass destruction. States, national and global economies are lower than whale poop and bailout mania inevitably will spark big-time inflation.
Why do the nattering nabobs continue to feed the fictional global warming beast?
According to Dr. Arun D. Ahluwalia at Punjab University and a board member of the U.N.-supported International Year of the Planet, “The IPCC has actually become a closed circuit; it doesn’t listen to others. It doesn’t have open minds . . . I am really amazed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been given on scientifically incorrect conclusions by people who are not geologists.”
Frankly, the problem (which most pols are scared spitless to admit is a problem) is the same challenge scientists now face. Atmospheric physicists James A. Peden, formerly of the Space Research and Coordination Center in Pittsburgh, noted, “Many [scientists] are now searching for a way to back out quietly (from promoting warming fears), without having their professional careers ruined.”
Despite the overwhelming contradictory science, the promoters and enablers of the Global Warming panic lack the courage to admit they were wrong, and move on.
Dr. Eduardo Tonni, of the Committee for Scientific Research in Buenos Aires and head of the Paleontology Department at the University of La Plata, hit the nail on the head when he candidly said, “The [global warming] scaremongering has its justification in the fact that it is something that generates funds.” Follow the money honey, but wait — what money?
The Washington Times http://washingtontimes.com/news/2008/dec/10/global-warming-freeze/ recently noted, “It is time to file this theory [Global Warming] in the dustbin of history . . . Alarmists are in denial and running for cover.”
The 650 dissenting scientists are more than 12 times the number of U.N. flacks who authored the media enabled (hyped) IPCC 2007 Summary for Policymakers.
Obama has said he plans to cut U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases, now about 17 percent above 1990 levels, back to 1990 levels by 2020 and then by 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050.
According to the Guardian, in Britain, European Union officials have proposed making an 80 percent to 95 percent reduction in greenhouse emissions by 2050 in exchange for developing countries’ reducing their emissions by 15 percent to 30 percent over the next decade.
Bush rejected Kyoto, which sets 2012 targets for 37 developed nations to cut emissions, because it would cost too much. What was “too costly” for the Bush administration (given the current global economy) is confiscatory for the new Obama team.
Global warming is bogus . . . to throw billions of dollars that don’t exist after a media enabled liberal dream quest is counterintuitive and a cancer that needs to be surgically and finally removed from the body politic.
