Sanctimonious opinions of leftists glo-warming advocates derive from articles like “Climate science: Why the world won’t listen,” by psychologist Adam Corner, New Science Magazine which begins:
WHEN scholars of the future write the history of climate change, they may look to early 2008 as a pivotal moment. Al Gore’s film An Inconvenient Truth was bringing the science to the masses. The economist Nicholas Stern had made the financial case for tackling the problem sooner rather than later. And the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) had just issued its most unequivocal report yet on the link between human activity and climatic change. (emphasis mine)
Mr. Corner’s premise: “When it comes to climate change, facts don’t speak for themselves. Communicators need to find better ways to connect.”
This is how the leftist glo-warmer thinks. When confronted with growing strength in the opposition they shift the focus of their attack. They begin by declaring they have the facts…all of them. This establishes, at least in their minds, that they are right…ending all further discussion. They proceed to a new level of manipulation…in this case, appealing to dissenters (maliciously labeled “deniers”) based in things they care about.
Let’s see…the conspirators who began by issuing falsehoods, scaring the daylights out of people, indoctrinating children, confiscating big piles of cash through taxation and carbon trading schemes, destroying industry and the middle class through punishing regulation, and creating an atmosphere of “crisis dependency thinking” in the masses now want to take a friendly (condescending) approach by appealing to the concerns of their detractors?
Upon what possible standard of ethics do they believe they have a right to stand that anyone should even begin to want to engage them on the topic of man caused global warming?
Here is the lesson. The indoctrinated Marxist never gives up. His need for the power and control to establish a brave new (safe) world with him calling the shots overwhelms all else. The corresponding opportunity to cash in is the reward he offers himself for his undying devotion to the “worth” cause.
The solution for freedom loving seekers of truth, dedicated and supportive of honesty in science and journalism is to thoroughly discredit and defeat the radicals by the continuous exposure of charlatans dedicated to the hoax perpetrated by glo-warming leader Al Gore and his cadre of activist scientists, opportunists, and politicians.
Point of fact: A British court found that Al Gore’s film was bringing indoctrination to the masses, in particular to school children, and ordered a “corrected guidance note” be sent to all British secondary schools “making clear the mainstream scientific position” on “nine errors” in the film. There were actually many more errors offered to the court for consideration but the court stated it did not have the time to address all of them and settled on nine.
The initial cookie baked into the MMGW scheme began to crumble! Al Gore’s film is shown to be nothing more than a leftist propaganda vehicle!
Despite this revelation Al Gores Inconvenient Truth remains a pillar of the Glo-warming cause. Those now screaming “science denier” are themselves science manipulators, fabricators, opportunists and hangers-on.
According to the above linked report by Christopher Monckton from the Science and Public Policy Institute, Al Gore Spokeswoman Kalee Kreider attempted to explain away the judge’s ruling, making several inaccurate statements in the process. In typical leftist fashion she also found it necessary to demean the parent that had the gall to question Gores movie and what school children, including his own children, were being taught:
Al Gore’s spokesman and “environment advisor,” Ms. Kalee Kreider, begins by saying that the film presented “thousands and thousands of facts.” It did not: just 2,000 “facts” in 93 minutes would have been one fact every three seconds. The film contained only a few dozen points, most of which will be seen to have been substantially inaccurate. The judge concentrated only on nine points which even the UK Government, to which Gore is a climate-change advisor, had to admit did not represent mainstream scientific opinion.
Ms. Kreider then states, incorrectly, that the judge himself had never used the term “errors.” In fact, the judge used the term “errors,” in inverted commas, throughout his judgment.
Next, Ms. Kreider makes some unjustifiable ad hominem attacks on Mr. Stewart Dimmock, the lorry driver, school governor and father of two school-age children who was the plaintiff in the case. This memorandum, however, will eschew any ad hominem response, and will concentrate exclusively on the 35 scientific inaccuracies and exaggerations in Gore’s movie. (see report)
Ms. Kreider then says, “The process of creating a 90-minute documentary from the original peer-reviewed science for an audience of moviegoers in the U.S. and around the world is complex.” However, the single web-page entitled “The Science” on the movie’s official website contains only two references to articles in the peer-reviewed scientific journals. There is also a reference to a document of the IPCC, but its documents are not independently peer-reviewed in the usual understanding of the term.
At this point it might be interesting to note that Paramount, the distributor of “An Inconvenient Truth”, warns in its synopsis:
“If the vast majority of the world’s scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced.”
Six years later and we have seen extreme weather but it has not been weather “beyond anything we have ever experienced” as the scare mongering Paramount executives and Al Gores movie suggest.
Clearly projected outcomes, supposedly based on settled science, are based on big fat fibs. The science, as stated by Al Gore and others, is not settled opinion but instead extremist blather with a bit of science thrown in for appearance sake. Many of the conclusions that have been drawn, and drawn as if they represent a final exact truth, represent a series of predictions based on a few assumptions and imagined scenarios. These aren’t scientists in the traditional sense; they are, as someone said, more like fortune tellers…and their predictions have been wrong again and again.
Major flaws have been exposed but glo-warming activists would rather die than admit to their importance.
Here’s the bottom line for freedom loving citizens: The need for drastic, harmful legislation has been exaggerated and must be resisted!
Al Gore, through his movie…the writers of the IPCC through their (disputed) report…and leftist politicians and activists through their constant harmful legislation and bloviating have engaged in this world-wide hoax for purposes of political power, redistribution, and manipulation. As Christopher Monckton of Benchley wrote in the above linked report:
“All of the errors point in one direction – towards undue alarmism. Not one of the errors falls in the direction of underestimating the degree of concern in the scientific community. The likelihood that all 35 of the errors…could have fallen in one direction purely by inadvertence is less than 1 in 34 billion.
Readers interested in Monckton’s opinions might also enjoy Lord Monckton’s summary of Climategate and its issues by Anthony Watts:
The whistleblower deep in the basement of one of the ugly, modern tower-blocks of the dismal, windswept University of East Anglia could scarcely have timed it better.
In less than three weeks, the world’s governing class – its classe politique – would meet in Copenhagen, Denmark, to discuss a treaty to inflict an unelected and tyrannical global government on us, with vast and unprecedented powers to control all once-free world markets and to tax and regulate the world’s wealthier nations for its own enrichment: in short, to bring freedom, democracy, and prosperity to an instant end worldwide, at the stroke of a pen, on the pretext of addressing what is now known to be the non-problem of manmade “global warming”.
And they pretend such innocence, such worthiness of purpose…such heartfelt concern for their fellow man.
Those of us who are tired of being manipulated and lied to by these power and money grubbing radicals must remain strong in our demands. Let us make clear our intention to uplift only those scientists, journalists, politicians and activists that operate with the intention of seeking sound scientific determination and who are committed to reporting findings with clarity, honor and integrity. Let us be mindful of those who value freedom as we do and welcome open scrutiny, disagreement, struggle, caution, risk taking, and discovery. These are the methods and values that will lead to true understanding and solutions that work for everyone.
It is my contention that “when scholars of the future write the history of climate change”…they will undoubtedly sort through piles of…pardon the expression…alarmist bulls*#t and conclude that although humans of the time were sensitive to their environment, and dedicated to conservation and preservation of the beautiful world in which they lived, they were also ultimately wise enough to expose charlatan scientists and reject unfair and unfounded taxation, regulation, and schemes for world dominance hatched by unscrupulous politicians, scientists, and journalists. They will find that the majority of the people were responsibly skeptical, curious, and willing to question outlandish declarations made by the posers and hucksters of their time. They will find that the people were ultimately confident and determined to counter the emotionally duped, the indoctrinated, and most specifically, the charlatans and activists who rallied to disallow opposing opinion. They will report that during this period the people stood resolute against a depraved scheme to deprive the world of freedom, industry, and a thriving middle class. Historians will find that in the end…the truth will out.
