The global warming hoax has turned into just another “419” scam (aka “Nigeria scam” or “West African” scam), so-named after a section in the penal code of Nigeria. Remember when jet-setting eco-whackposts fled freezing temperatures in Europe? They all gathered in sunny Cancun to demonstrate they had bought into the hoax. As faithful True Belivers of Big Brother’s AGW they were determined to agree on how best all must join together. And, who better than schoolteachers to save the world? And, why shouldn’t Leftist politicians offer us sinners — in the free exercise of their new religion — salvation from being burned alive in a CO2 Thermageddon (i.e., sort of like an offer you can’t refuse)?
Well, guess what? The secular, socialist effete snobs of Big Government Western science authoritarianism are simply talking to themselves. No one with a brain is listening.
Scientists involved in the IPCC advanced their careers, obtained personal publicity, and some gained a seat at the big policy tables. This career advancement of IPCC scientists was done with the complicity of the professional societies and the institutions that fund science. Eager for the publicity, high impact journals such as Nature, Science, and PNAS frequently publish sensational but dubious papers that support the climate alarm narrative… ~Judith Curry
Obviously, the climate porn industry insiders will continue to hype the fearmongering for as long as it takes to unload their stock in ‘green technology,’ and all the while, Leftists hypocrites like Soros will continue buying coal stocks as he funnels millions to fearmongers like James Hansen to help keep the hoax alive.
Meanwhile, as the warmists continue their doomscrying and seeking further hundreds of billions of dollars to carry on their vast charade, the whole economic structure upon which everything depends is teetering on the brink of disaster with little effort to address or to even recognise the very real and present dangers which confront us.
All over the developed world, governments have committed to unfunded liabilities and fostered a proliferation of bureaucracy which their increasingly uncompetitive productive sectors cannot sustain. Most are now running on empty with no credit left, no plan B and no apparent recognition that the path they are on leads only to the edge of a cliff. ~Walter Starck, 2-Jan-2011
