The New Climate Game

lawrence-solomonBy Lawrence Solomon

Climate scientists play a good game of whack-a-mole.Right from the early days of the global warming controversy, they whacked any scientist who dissented from the view that CO2 was warming the planet in a dangerous way. Up popped other skeptical scientists, and WHACK!! Down they went.

Up popped skeptical journalists and WHACK! Down they went, too. Then more whacks for new scientists who surfaced, or pesky scientists who resurfaced.

Today, decades later, the climate science establishment is still whacking away, faster and more frenetically than ever, as more and more skeptical scientists, journalists and politicians surface. And now there’s a new species of skeptic in need of whacking down ­- the many inquiries that have sprung up in the wake of Climategate, the unauthorized release of some 3,000 documents from the computers of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at East Anglia University showing that data had been manipulated and destroyed.

East Anglia University was the first to establish an inquiry into its conduct. Then it started a second inquiry to complement the first. The Met Office, the UK government’s meteorological department, announced its inquiry to redo the data that CRU had destroyed, a process that would take it three years. The UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office began an inquiry, to ascertain whether the country’s Freedom of Information Law had been broken. The local police force, working with Scotland Yard, also began an inquiry.

All these would and will need to be whacked, and more would, too. The IPCC itself announced an inquiry. Across the Atlantic, Penn State University, home to Michael Mann, one of America’s most important doomsayers, launched an investigation.

    With the help of the press (which is at the service of the left in a 90%), we will see very soon all this high ranking liars (like Mann, Jones, and Gore) vindicated as prophets. It is a matter of time, because it is a matter of money and whereever there is money and a chance for corruption, there is the left, controling the business.

    The Right’s game is Whack a Prole.

    Oh and you are correct, except that the Right/corporatists control 90% of the media. Close but no cigar.

    Isn’t the media supposed to report the truth, or make opinions? What is journalism? MSM is not telling the story be it “corporalists” or others.

    Oh really? Then who’s story are they telling? Nobodies? Really?? Why wouldn’t they be influenced or even worse by those who sign their checks? Come on man. I’m not just making crap up. Follow the dots, and then connect them. In this case it’s easy. Who owns the media, etc. This issu is child’s play.

    Cannot comment on dribble.

    Rob doesn’t make things up, he copies them from other wing-nuts. Rob, do you feel the tingle in your leg?

    WTF ?!

    Dribble to you- truth to those with eyes and ears… my friend.

    “Eyes like an Eagle and Ears like a Deer.” Remember, I’m used to the “true outdoors.” Nature as well as climate change is natural and I never miss a beat my friend. A”true Hunter” is always one step ahead of those stalking him and has a game plan before him. Never forget that my friend.

    I think Rob didn’t reach your intelect Paul. He try and try to read your subtexts, he try to understand your messages in good English, but he normally didn’t arrive. It happens also with Neil. I will like to be able to speak good English in order to make honor to Arthur Kudner in this message to his son:
    ““Never fear big long words.
    Big long words mean little things.
    All big things have little names,
    Such as life and death, peace and war,
    Or dawn, day, night, hope, love, home.
    Learn to use little words in a big way.
    It is hard to do, But they say what you mean.
    When you don’t know what you mean,
    Use big words That often fools little people.”

    Wow. I work with the mentally ill- but most of them are extremely SANE when compared to you guys.

    You make me smile, thanks

    Like I said…

    Cubanshammo, I understand exactly what you said. A man of few words has more knowledge than ten others. That said, I’m just a simple man that states what I believe in, right, wrong or indifferent. If people like Rob as well as others don’t like it, it does not matter. At least I can state it as I see it in America, not in some other countries as you and I both know. Comments from Rob about working with the mentally ill? I will not go there.

    Cubanshammo, Always remember. “It is not what you say, but how you say it.” Never ever forget that. (Robbie boy may think it over as well.)
