Ever think that the globaloney warming movement was all about the money? Well, you were onto something.
Maggie Fox, aka Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall, sent out yet another begging letter (OK, they call them fundraising appeals) to well-heeled but gullible types in which Fox repeated the canard that 2012 was the hottest year on record. But no sooner had Fox’s Climate Reality Project (CRaP) letters hit the web, Fox’s buddy, Jim Hansen, dropped a bombshell.
Hansen acknowledged – belatedly, Cheap Seats might note – that the earth’s temperature has not risen a whit.
“The five-year mean global temperature has been flat for the last decade, which we interpret as a combination of natural variability and a slow-down in the growth rate of net climate forcing,” Hansen wrote.
And let’s not forget that the boys at The University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom, also known as the University of Easy A, recently released data showing that global temperatures haven’t risen since early 1997
Yet Fox was writing to her suckers, er, adherents that “2012 was another momentous year for climate change in the United States and around the world.”
Well, she got the momentous part right.
Fox neglected to mention, for instance that her patron, Al Gore, had a momentous payday when he sold Current TV to Al Jazeera for $500 million petrodollars.
So let’s get this straight. Fox and CRaP send out hysterical begging letters caterwauling about global warming when the high priest of warming goes all heretic and says that the earth is flatlining – Temperature-wise, of course. Those letters go out just as Big Daddy Al Oilbucks starts rolling in the stuff from the very people he says are responsible for pumping carbon into the atmosphere?
And those guys say skeptics of global warming are anti-science?
Well, we do at least know the answers to some questions. Simple, fill-in-the-blank ones, like “A fool and his money are soon _____?”
