Has our nation been devoted to the now obvious falsity of “global warming” for the economic gain of a few . . .
The winners: Al Gore, James Hansen, and a few others; some named below.
It is long past time to get our Congress doing the useful work of the people, and get to the bottom of why the useless fool’s errand of chasing down carbon dioxide.
It is time now for a full-blown Congressional Investigation of this utter fraud against the American people; and a fraud against the people of the world.
A most relevant letter below from Richard Lindzen, a leading scientist who has challenged the polemic (fraud) openly, and been slandered for it:
An email from Prof. Lindzen [rlindzen@MIT.EDU]I would suppose that you are sometimes accused of thinking that the global warming issue is a conspiracy. Whenever such an accusation is made to me, I respond that no conspiracy is needed. However, increasingly it is evident that conspiracy has played a role.For example, Tony Socci, who played a significant role in the Singer affair, is now the spokesman of the American Meteorological Society in Washington. John Firor, who was for many years the administrative director of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, was also the chairman of the board of the Environmental Defense Fund. R. Napier, president of the World Wildlife Federation – UK, is also chairman of the board of the UK Meteorological Office (which includes the Hadley Center).Jim Hansen is closely associated with Michael Oppenheimer who was long the Barbara Streisand Scientist at Environmental Defense, and, apparently Michael was on the EPA review panel that recommended the funding of Hansen to get into climate modeling (after NASA had cut funds for the New York lab). Oppenheimer, despite only being a minor author of 3-4 peer reviewed scientific papers on climate, is now a professor at Princeton University. It would be interesting to know who endowed his professorship.
There are many other examples of such interlocking relations between environmental activism (in political or organizational form) and seemingly authoritative academic bodies. I doubt that these relations are accidental.
Moreover, intentional slander seems to be a standard tactic. One matter which involved me was the accusation by Gelbspan that I had lied about a debate in the UK with Bert Bolin. I informed Gelbspan that I had a tape of the debate. Gelbspan said that he wasn’t interested. Much of this happened quite long ago, but the situation only seems to be getting worse. My hope is that this is simply a fever before the disease breaks.
