Of course if all they had to explain was a flatline in global temperatures, the job would be a great deal easier.
As it is, scientists are having difficulty merely acknowledging the obvious. They will hardly discuss the fact that the British Metropolitan Office has noted that Al Gore’s infamous fever is no more than the bead of forehead sweat caused by the discovery of, shall we say, trouser textile extremity flammability?
Yep, the last thing our pants-on-fire former veep wants is for his shills to rat out the game. Odds are he can count on Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall, aka Maggie Fox, to keep dealing three-toed Monte over at Climate Reality Project (CRaP) but some rubes are seeing that the fix is in.
The cool truth is that the earth hasn’t heated in nearly two decades and while climate scientists are taking note, climate “scientists” are plotting ways to keep the money hole open.
“My own confidence in the data has gone down in the past five years,” said Richard Tol, a climate expert and economics professor the University of Sussex in England and apparently a member of the former group.
Michael Mann at Penn State and a card-carrying member of the latter set, is still looking to hide the decline. Cheap Seats presumes he’s not referring to the one that might occur in his bank account should all the government money for alarmism dry up, but we’re broad-minded here. Maybe he was referring to the temperature in the emails that he just cannot explain away.
Anyway, as they say in Alarmists Anonymous, you can’t explain the global temperature without first acknowledging it, so perhaps the first of many an anthropogenic global warming 12-step program is under way.
If so, we’ll drink to it.
