Yes, many of you already know this. The warmists have a positively religious attachment to the notion that evil corporations and selfish individuals are deliberately causing global warming.
If they think about it at all, they think these corporations don’t care that their customers will all die and then the corporations won’t have any customers, hence will also die. Don’t ever look for logic in a religious conviction.
Think these remarks are an exaggeration by an equally religious fanatic on the opposite side of this debate? Nope. Take a look at this news item. Here’s a snippet:
“In the 16 years we have been coming to these conferences, there has been no global warming,” Monckton said as confused murmurs filled the hall and then turned into a chorus of boos.
The stunt infuriated negotiators and activists here who gather every year to address what they believe is one of the world’s top threats, the steady rise of man-made global warming.
As Monckton was escorted from the hall and security officers stripped him of his U.N. credentials, several people noted that just a few hours earlier a group of young activists had been thrown out of the convention center and deported. Their crime: unfurling an unauthorized banner calling for the Qatari hosts to lead the negotiations to a strong conclusion.
Note the irrelevant final sentence in the above snip. This shows the quotation is from a green, warming-believing website. So, they’re all like glad and everything that this bad man got thrown out.
However, the site itself is an anti-warming site, so has many links to peer-reviewed scientific reports supporting their view that warming, such as it was, has stopped for the time being.
You are unlikely to see this news anywhere else unless you, too, are a fan of the fabulous news-compiling site known as the Drudge Report.
The only response the pro-warmists have left after all the data-corruption scandals is to make fun of their opponents and attack them, with no proof or evidence whatsoever, for taking money from oil companies. Dumb, eh?
The pro- and anti-warming news has dropped off the radar screens of the mainstream media. They are bored with the debate, which they believe is settled.
Even here in Switzerland, where people are more rational and educated than almost anybody in the world, the pro-warming crowd seemss to have won the day.
But don’t worry. These major media folks can turn on a dime and pretend they never, no never, held the other view. Just like other religious and totalitarian institutions, and as Orwell pointed out so well, they can argue black is white and freedom is slavery (or was it the other way around?) and never break a sweat.
