They are not going down without a fight. Too much money and ego is at stake. The warm mongers have decided to “fight back” against the skeptics.
Undaunted by a rash of scandals over the science underpinning climate change, top climate researchers are plotting to respond with what one scientist involved said needs to be “an outlandishly aggressively partisan approach” to gut the credibility of skeptics.
In private e-mails obtained by The Washington Times, climate scientists at the National Academy of Sciences say they are tired of “being treated like political pawns” and need to fight back in kind. Their strategy includes forming a nonprofit group to organize researchers and use their donations to challenge critics by running a back-page ad in the New York Times.
“Most of our colleagues don’t seem to grasp that we’re not in a gentlepersons’ debate, we’re in a street fight against well-funded, merciless enemies who play by entirely different rules,” Paul R. Ehrlich, a Stanford University researcher, said in one of the e-mails.
Ooooh, a back page add in the NY Times. That’s fighting back hard.
Notice the person they quote is Paul Elrich, one of the biggest scare mongers artists of the past 40 years. He wrote the Population Bomb, one of the early alarmist books which claimed we would be out of natural resources by the 1960s and mass starvation by the ’70s. Yeah. Very credible. No surprise that he endorses AGW. He’s the proto-Al Gore.
Let’s deal with reality for a second. The warmists have been waging war against skeptics from day one. They had the upper hand for the longest time because the media was on their side. People are now beginning to see that this while thing was an elaborate scam. The warmists see the whole thing crumbling down around them, so they are trying to fight back against what we can hope in their inevitable failure. But remember, we’re dealing with people who are not only dishonest, if not crazy, they’ve invested their careers and lives in this big lie. They have too much to lose so they will fight to the end.
Politicians have billions, nay, trillions of dollars in their eyes in new taxes. They will not give that up easily either. As much as I would love to see this all crash and be done with, we’re still in for a fight. But this article shows how lame and pathetic they really are.
The one good thing about this world wide economic crisis is it’s getting people to no longer tolerate the nonsense. When times were good people were willing to shrug it off and grumble. Not now.
