Death Knell Part IV: Climategate

Global Warming - A theory popularized by lying politicians to scare the living hell at of all of us.
From The Urban Dictionary.

It would appear to the rational that the wheels have fallen off the cart for the Global Warmists. Ah, but do not underestimate the power and resiliency of this powerful neo-religious movement!

For those of you living under a rock, leaked emails from "climate scientists" which openly reveal the fraudulent practices said "scientists" have engaged in has rocked the "climate science" community (read: those charged with ginning up propaganda under the guise of science in order to give world leaders cover for implementing measures that will lead to the "glorious" One-World Socialist Utopia).

One would think that these revelations would put an end once-and-for-all to the charade. One would be wrong.

For starters, there is a media blackout in the United States on coverage of Climategate. Only the Washington Times, Fox News, and the Opinion page of the Wall Street Journal have put any serious coverage into the issue. CNN mentioned the scandal -- but only to dismiss it as a "tempest in a tea cup". None -- let me repeat that, NONE -- of the networks, none of the major US newspapers, NONE of the Big Media (the BM for short) juggernauts have reported jack squat about this.

Oh, excuse me, the New York Times HAS spoken of their Environment blog, NOT on the auspicious gray pages of their daily propaganda rag. Even then, their blogger refuses to post the emails or excerpts from the emails because,
The documents appear to have been acquired illegally and contain all manner of private information and statements that were never intended for the public eye
Oh, THAT'S rich! The assholes who brought us the Pentagon Papers, who published (against the wishes of the Bush administration) details of the methods utilized to track terrorists, and who published excerpts from Sarah Palin's hacked emails, now suddenly have a conscience!

No, it seems that, if one is interested in finding out ANYTHING about this scandal, one has to go to the British press (see here and here for examples) for any sort of honest assessment of the situation.

Okay, so the BM is in the tank with the frauds. What about our ruling class?

Australia has MUCH to be proud of. Five MPs (Members of Parliament) - front bench MPs all - have resigned rather than follow their dopey leadership down the primrose path to ridiculous carbon taxation. To those five brave and distinguished individuals: I salute you.

What about the United States? Predictably, just as the BM has ignored the scandal, so has our political class. James Inhofe has raised a ruckus and called for hearings, but he's been fighting the battle against AGW quack science for more than a decade. The rest of Congress? Queue the sound of crickets chirping.

Il Duce is pressing onwards towards Copenhagen. He has pledged to reduce US carbon emissions 17% by 2020. He's making deals with China and India with regards to carbon capping. In other words, it's business-as-usual in the Duce administration.

And therein is the rub, you see. Climate change was NEVER about any real threat to the planet, any real threat to humanity, any real threat to nature. It was, is, and always will be about pushing towards that "glorious" One-World Socialist Utopia.

That and nothing more.
