Global Warming — 2½ Years of Zero Change

Climate HucksterismThe official climate alarmism industry steadfastly denied easily observable natural oscillations for years. What could possible explain why scientists would turn their backs on thousands of years of historical information? Only now are some climatists beginning to admit the oversight was probably due to the ulterior motives (i.e., hidden agendas) of self-righteous proselytizers of the fashionable, politically-correct government science of human-caused climate change. What else can they say? The only other explanation is that fear of global warming has never been anything more than the product of willful ignorance, simple charlatanism or liberal fascist propaganda.

This is how a hoax dies.

The hypothesis in the Western world that modern man is heating the globe (AGW) is an example of pathological science. “Pathological science is the process in science in which ‘people are tricked into false results… by subjective effects, wishful thinking or threshold interactions.'” (refer to Irving Langmuir)

Based on the expected course of a pathological science, global warming alarmism will not simply, go away. It lingers on even after, as Philip Stott describes below, the public is no longer ‘convinced’ that the ‘global warming panic’ is real. Langmuir calls pathological science, “the science of things that aren’t so.”

Global warming is pretend science. More and more heretics have abandoned the pseudoscience faith of the AGW belief system. No longer true believers, these skeptics now see AGW as bad and junk science, an example of cargo-cult thinking and fearmongering voodoo. And, the skeptics now represent the wider public who, as Stott observed, have rejected the “hysteria and the manic depressive hyperactivity… of the ‘Global Warming’ Grand Narrative.”

Lest we forget what the gravamen of the climate change argument is all about — in as much as among sane people there obviously is no imminent danger from human-caused global warming (the only real danger being to act based on fear of global warming) — is that the rest of the world couldn’t give two schitts about Western Leftist fanaticism over AGW. Those outside the West have likened climatology to the science of ancient astrology.

Here on the home front, as experts in the science of things that aren’t so, the climatists of Western academia feel they are uniquely qualified to run the economy. Secular-socialist, big-government liberal Utopian Eurocommies are making use of global warming to help strip spirituality and the Judeo-Christian principles of individual liberty and personal responsibility from the American gestalt, and pick the productive clean like buzzards as Western civilization stumbles down the rabbit hole of socialism.

Hot World Syndrome—fear of a hotter, more intimidating world than it actually is prompting a desire for more protection than is warranted by any actual threat. A Chance Meeting– We toured south along the Bicentennial Bike Trail in the Summer of 1980, working up appetites covering ~70 miles per day and staying at hiker/biker campgrounds at night along the Oregon/California coast (they were 50¢ a day at that time). The day's ride over, and after setting up tents, hitting the showers, and making a run to a close-by store, it was time to relax. The third in our little bicycle tour group, Tom, was about 30 yards away conversing with another knot of riders and treating himself to an entire cheesecake for dinner. He probably figured Jim and I would joke about what a pig he was eating that whole pie and decided to eat among strangers. Three hours later after sharing stories and remarking on a few coincidences that turned up here and there, Tom and one of the former strangers realized they were cousins, meeting in this most unlikely place for the first time. ~Mac
