MAINSTREAM MEDIA: WHAT GLOBAL WARMING HOAX?
Posted by Andrew Roman on November 27, 2009
There can be no doubt whatsoever that if a series of e-mails between high-level government officials was duvulged suggesting that the attacks of September 11, 2001 were an inside job (as many 9/11-truthers religiously believe) the entirety of the media and entertainment complex would be set on its ever-loving ear.
Such a story would consume all means of news dissemination known to mankind. It would devour all broadcast media airtime. The number of trees that would lose their lives in order to accommodate a frantic print media would make Ed Begley, Jr’s skull rupture. There wouldn’t be enough bandwidth available to handle the overload of slavering conspiracists, outraged mouse-clickers and pajama-wearing blog spinsters. The shockwaves of such a capacious deception would be felt in every corner of the world. Every news outlet in possession of at least one stenographer’s pad and ball point pen would dispatch their slimiest, most-aggressive, most-implacable investigative reporters to do as much digging as their insatiable journalistic appetites (or the limits of the law) would allow.
As it should be.
What, then, can be said of the latest – and, by far, the greatest – evidence (outside of the climate itself) that the man-made global warming threat is an indubitable hoax of epic proportion? If the mainstream media of the United States is any indication, not too much. Although the blades of the global warming windmill are falling off the spindle quicker than a polar bear from an Arctic ice chunk, the East Anglia “Climategate” e-mails are still being characterized (if they’re even mentioned at all) by the mainstreamies as no big deal – examples of some unfortunate, inside-baseball stuff taken out of context by a hacker. The significance of the damning e-mails is greatly exaggerated according to those who know, despite every bit of evidence to the contrary, that the Earth faces untold calamities due to global warming – even though it isn’t warming. They are frantically, desperately fighting to save the ship despite the fact that the ship is doing perfectly well, taking on no water and under no threat.
It is surreal.
Indeed, this is a story that ought to be plastered across every front page of the world. This charade, which has been called the greatest threat facing humanity and has been inculcated into every orifice of western culture for the better part of two decades, should have bright-eyed and bushy-tailed young Bob Woodwards itching to get out there to make their journalistic bones. The exposure (and confirmation) of this epic myth should have the world’s press banging at the door of Al Gore demanding to know what the hell is going on. The ferocious push by world leaders, brainwashed bootlickers, frightened backscratchers and brain-dead ideologues over the past two decades to literally change the face of the global economy based on absolutely unproven, unsubstantiated, phony, agenda-driven junk-science is such that this story should be the biggest since 9/11. It should be told at every corner of the globe and be called precisely what it is – the final clincher of the greatest hoax ever to be thrust upon humankind.
But it isn’t.
It’s getting there.
Gerald Warner of the UK Telegraph has an interesting perspective:
Just a few considerations in addition to previous remarks about the explosion of the East Anglia Climategate e-mails in America. The reaction is growing exponentially there. Fox News, Barack Obama’s Nemesis, is now on the case, trampling all over Al Gore’s organic vegetable patch and breaking the White House windows. It has extracted some of the juiciest quotes from the e-mails and displayed them on-screen, with commentaries. Joe Public, coast-to-coast, now knows, thanks to the clowns at East Anglia’s CRU, just how royally he has been screwed.
At this rate, Copenhagen is going to turn into a comedy convention with the real world laughing at these liars. Now is the time to mount massive resistance to the petty tyrants and hit them where it hurts – in the wallet. Further down the line there may be, in many countries, a question of criminal prosecution of anybody who has falsified data to secure funds and impose potentially disastrous fiscal restraints on the world in deference to a massive hoax. It’s a new world out there, Al [Gore], and, as you may have noticed, the climate is very cold indeed.
It would be quite nice, in a more perfect world – or at least one commandeered by common sense – to believe that this greatest of all swindles could serve to open the eyes of the indoctrinated climate-change zealots heading to Copenhagen in December, but I have no such allusions. Even if the very airplanes bringing some of these doomsayers to Denmark for the Climate Conference wound up being held over because the wings needed to be de-iced, it wouldn’t change the thinking. It is “settled science,” after all. The debate is long since over. Global warming remains mankind’s greatest danger. The science is as certain as ever – even though scientists are baffled as to why the world has been cooling over the last ten years.
And while my local weatherman can’t seem to get the weekend weather forecast quite right, we are to believe these eco-fascists somehow know for certain what will be happening in thirty years.
And although not a single “global warming” computer model predicted the current ten-year cooling trend, we are to believe these enviro-brown shirts can predict the doom of the planet.
From the Wall Street Journal’s Opinion Journal yesterday:
But the furor over these documents is not about tone, colloquialisms or even whether climatologists are nice people in private. The real issue is what the messages say about the way the much-ballyhooed scientific consensus on global warming was arrived at in the first place, and how even now a single view is being enforced. In short, the impression left by the correspondence among Messrs. Mann and Jones and others is that the climate-tracking game has been rigged from the start.
According to this privileged group, only those whose work has been published in select scientific journals, after having gone through the “peer-review” process, can be relied on to critique the science. And sure enough, any challenges that critics have lobbed at climatologists from outside this clique are routinely dismissed and disparaged.
This past September, Mr. Mann told a New York Times reporter in one of the leaked emails that: “Those such as [Stephen] McIntyre who operate almost entirely outside of this system are not to be trusted.” Mr. McIntyre is a retired Canadian businessman who fact-checks the findings of climate scientists and often publishes the mistakes he finds—including some in Mr. Mann’s work—on his Web site, Climateaudit.org. He holds the rare distinction of having forced Mr. Mann to publish a correction to one of his more-famous papers.
An encouraging note:
In Australia yesterday, five Liberal Party frontbenchers resigned their portfolios because they could not, in good conscience, vote for that country’s equivalent of Cap and Trade – the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).
Meanwhile, with President Obama preparing for his departure to Copenhagen on December 9th, there are still too few Americans who know the details of this story – if they’ve even heard it at all – or its implications. There are too many in the United States who get their information from lock-step, liberal conventional wisdom conveyed to them through the tentacles of popular culture. Fox News is, indeed, covering the story to a certain extent, but it is otherwise being largely ignored by the rest of the alphabets and sycophants.
Incidentally, you may recall that not too long ago British Prime Minister Gordon Brown warned us that the world had a mere fifty days to save itself from certain global-warming induced doom.
How time flies.
There are only eleven days left.
