Global warming sceptics are accused of using dodgy sources, being shills for dastardly multinationals and inventing conspiracies. Just today your correspondent was said to “regurgitate the bullshit spread by cultural warriors with enormous conflicts of interest”.
But sceptics don’t stifle debate. In fact, sceptics won’t be happy until every arm of western media is reporting this issue objectively.
Alarmists, on the other hand, have been shown to invent situations to bolster their case, to silence their critics and to distort scientific data.
When walruses were found dead on an Alaskan beach, yes, said the warmenistas, clear proof of the lethal effects of a rapidly cooking planet. Er no, it wasn’t actually.
When the grilling got a tad uncomfortable for global warming’s king of cartetbaggers Al Gore, Al’s acolytes just pulled the plug on the unfortunate truth-seeker.
MCALLER: No, but no, I mean, Vice President Gore, Vice President Gore hasn’t-
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We’re not doing a debate here.
MCALEER: No, this question, he hasn’t answered the question.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We have 10 minutes left for these people to ask questions.
MCALEER: Yes, but I would appreciate his answer to the court-
WIAN: Conference organizers then cut off McAleer’s microphone. The dispute centers on a 2007 British court ruling that Gore’s film had nine significant errors, including its assertion that ice pack melting would cause the sea level to rise 20 feet in the near future, and that Hurricane Katrina was caused by global warming.
And lately it was revealed that alarmists’ “hockey stick” data that showed a dramatic increase in world temperatures in the past 200 years was arrived at by extremely shonky means.
The scary red line shooting upwards is the one Al Gore, Michael Mann, Keith Briffa and their climate-fear-promotion chums would like you to believe in. The black one, heading downwards, represents scientific reality.
We “Global Warming Deniers” are often accused of ignoring the weight of scientific opinion. Well if the “science” on which they base their theories is as shoddy as Mann’s Hockey Stick, is it any wonder we think they’re talking cobblers?
If the science is so settled and the consensus so complete why do manmade global warming believers resort to lies and censorship to reinforce their case?
