The aftermath and fallout of the global warming hoax has started in earnest now. This is a story which I think has yet to finally sink in. As we all start to come to grips with the idea of being duped so completely for more than half our lives, it’s difficult to think we could have been so gullible. Sometimes the truth is hard to accept. After all, as I mentioned in my last blog, what we did, we did from a sense of obligation to the planet. Since we all want to be good stewards of God’s great gifts, we fell hook, line, and sinker for a ruse that was designed to make us change our lifestyles and feed the government coffers.
I have been tracking the demise of the global warming movement in this blog for almost a year now. Last year, I linked to an article from the UK Telegraph proclaiming 2008 as the year the climate hoax was disproved. While that may have been true in the UK, and despite overwhelming evidence now from the disclosed emails, people in the states are still reticent to accept the full weight of the deceit. Exhibit A, Ed Begley, Jr.:
For the record, I love Ed Begley as an actor. I have watched his show, “Living with Ed,” which shows his lifestyle of “living green.” One of my favorite moments on that show was when his wife realized she had been putting plastic bottles in the recycle bin with the caps still on. If you have a recycle bin, you know that you are supposed to take the caps off. When she realized her mistake, she asked what they do with bottles that have the cap on them. (I’m sure she envisioned a well-paid government employee spending their day uncapping bottles to save the planet.) When she was told they simply throw them away with the rest of the trash, you could see the blood drain from her face! Her mouth fell open, she was apoplectic! “17 years! 17 years I’ve been recylcing and they’ve been putting them in the trash?!?” LOL I can’t stop laughing over that one! Anyway, Ed Begley is one of these people who is “all in” on the global warming issue. So it’s no surprise that he isn’t willing to give in so easily to the obvious flaws in his arguments. When he says “peer-review journals are the key,” he ignores the hundreds of emails released pointing out how they intended to change the nature of peer review to hide their deceit. The global warming scientists haven’t released any of their original data sets so no one can possibly reproduce their scientific work.
But the wake of the fallout from this has started to ripple. Phil Jones, the scientist at the center of the email scandal, has agreed to step down as head of the East Anglia Climate Research Unit. Is this an admission of guilt? I think so. What do you think? Why wouldn’t he stay and fight if these have been fabricated in some way. At the very least, it means the emails are real. If he wants to argue that “hide” and “trick” are words that have a different meaning in the scientific world, I’d like to hear him make that case. But he couldn’t leave without dropping one more bombshell. According to Mr. Jones, ALL OF THE ORIGINAL DATA HAS BEEN DESTROYED!!! So no one can ever reproduce their scientific work! There can no longer be any question about the level of deceit here. So when Mr. Begley points to peer review, there can not possibly any form of peer review, now or ever! The idea of this being settled science has been smashed to smithereens!
Here’s what we know for sure:
The earth hasn’t been warming for about the last ten years.
The polar bear population is at an all-time high.
The ice caps are growing back.
The head of the IPCC isn’t a climatologist, he’s an engineer.
Wait! What was that last one?!? The head of the largest scientific body in the world isn’t a scientist?!? This is the major source of climate science for the last thirty years and the guy who’s in charge of diseminating this information has no idea if it’s true or not? Perhaps we have found the source of the problem!
Yes, the signs have been there all these years. If you wanted to look you could see that this has been a political movement from the start and not an environmental one. So with all due respect to Mr. Begley, Mr. Gore, and any others whose pocket book will be completely depleted by the demise of this movement. . . .IT’S OVER!
Fortunately, the news is starting to creep in to the mainstream. Even John Stewart on “The Daily Show” did a report on it. This is good news since most of America gets their news from John Stewart and Weekend Update on SNL. (sadly) Although he still hasn’t completely accepted that the idea that global warming was a hoax (I told you it would be hard), he does come pretty close:
Check it out here.
For me the line of this entire affair is, “Poor Al Gore. Global warming completely debunked via the very Internet you invented! Oh the irony!” LOL I’ll remember that one for a long time!
I have to say that I find it so humorous now to see commercials on television pitching “green” features. Imagine twenty years from now talking to our grand-kids and trying to tell them how we all fell for such an outlandish proposition. Hopefully, by then, we can all laugh about it without throwing up in our mouth. . .just a little bit.
