And call Al Gore, Ahab.
Call me Ishmael.
I will be ashamed if my readers did not already know (as we have discussed for years) that the Global Warming Hoax was/is, as we have always know it to be, a hoax. An effort to defraud nations and assist in the tireless (and creative) leftist international movement
One suspects this hacking had much to do with the sudden collapse of the world-wide global warming boondoggle and economic manipulation and “global management” movements that have been so wildly trumpeted by international scallywags of all stripes and ambitions.
Aren’t you glad, now, that the moron cowboy saw through it and was smart enough to keep us out of the unworkable and failed Kyoto treaty, despite worldwide pressure and ceaseless hysteria from the moronic press and joy-sucking “green business experts”?
This is pretty big news, right? So look what all three networks led with, tonight
My prediction, as I said earlier: Within ten days to a month, we’re going to hear that Global Warming has “stalled” thanks to “the global recession and measures we have already taken to save the planet.” Then, you might think (as this guy does) that these emails might be the “last nail in the coffin” but this dead thing will rise. Be prepared to hear that this good news is “temporary,” and that while we’re enjoying “a stall,” Gaia is still quite doomed, thanks to mankind, and so things can get back on to the crisis/catastrophic track, “in a moment’s notice.”
Powerline, in a must-read, calls it “bombshell” and writes:
[these emails] do not suggest that these scientists are perpetrating a knowing and deliberate hoax. On the contrary, they are true believers. I don’t doubt that they are sincerely convinced–in fact, fanatically so–that human activity is warming the earth. But the emails are disturbing nonetheless . . . [their discovery suggests] that pro-global warming scientists fudge data to get the results they are looking for.
So, we can’t trust science to give us data uncorrupted by agendas. We can’t trust the press to give us news uncorrupted by agendas. We can’t trust the government to do much of anything, purely out of service to America. We can’t trust the schools to actually teach our children the basics. Who can we trust?
Perhaps it is down to trusting ourselves as much as we dare, and trusting God even more, in the end. As our good pope, Benedict has said:
Only the Word of God is the foundation of all reality, it is as stable as the heavens and more than the heavens, it is reality.
WELCOME: Readers of Lucianne.com. While you are here, please look around. We’re also watching a patient police officer get assaulted by a cat, sharing a delicious Pumpkin Bread Pudding recipe, reading A Tale of Two DUI’s, enjoying a video of a priest making a mockery of the film 2012, enjoying some Jolly Organ Music and figuring out that I probably won’t be podcasting, anymore.
