Straight to the heart of the doomist cult

The Daily Kos reports on the New York Times on the leaked IPCC report. Read it in case you have any doubts about the doomist cult whose effects on stupid men like Dalton McGuinty are to raise Ontario electricity rates and put uneconomic wind turbines over the landscape. Bad ideas have bad consequences.

The doom follows because stupid greedy men did not believe the scientifically impeccable Michael Mann, Kevin Trenberth, James Hansen, and their doomist cult.

Let me give you a flavour:

When Historians in 2100 look back at the events of the early 2000’s they will conclude that the most profound and far-reaching characteristic of the political gridlock in the United States during that era wasn’t either party’s position on taxes, Social Security, Medicare, immigration, guns, gay marriage or abortion, but rather the reflexive dismissal by the Republican Party of anything preceded by the letters “U.N.”

Writing on virtual, evanescent screens in their air-conditioned enclaves, situated well above saturated coastal regions teeming with desperate populations, they will ask themselves why any nation–let alone the world’s wealthiest–would permit a cabal so xenophobic, so vehemently anti-science to dictate climate policy at a time when the whole of human civilization stood dependent on concerted, cooperative action. They will ask why any nation would have empowered those whose sole objection to scientific truth boiled down to the fact that it was presented to them by an international organization, made up of folks with odd-sounding names and possibly even different skin colors than themselves.

 

Skepticism about man-made global warming is the result of nativist resistance to the United Nations, according to the author of this drivel.

Meantime, here is Judith Curry’s testimony to Congress on the same subject.

Drivel, indeed. Just what is “scientific truth”? I have yet to see any real science defined as the “truth”; it is a collection of theories and hypotheses that are always in danger of being replaced when better evidence becomes available.

Calling established science the “truth” is just a lazy way of paving the authors’ drive-by smear with the very unscientific grease of consensus politics.

FredR is spot on. In fact real science is never settled, since as new information is discovered what was previously considered scientific fact is forced to change. What we have now is not even science of any type. It is a political agenda-driven operation pretending to be science whose goal is pure neo-marxism.

Bixi bikes just went bankrupt in Montreal to the tune of $50 million (cost probably more than $200 million in reality if city takes over loans Bixi owes). More fruit of the green religion.
