If you were near a media outlet today, aside from listening to the non-story that someone named Herman Cain may have, or have not-at one time, or another, said things that could be construed quite possibly as, but not physically as, sexual harassment, you probably also saw this story: Global Warming Skeptic finds he believes in Global Warming–or some variation thereof.
And here we go again. The left has gotten so good about lying, not just to those of us who don’t believe them, but to themselves, that they’ve convinced themselves of several blatant falsehoods here: 1) Muller, the gent in question, is no AGW skeptic. In fact, he’s quite the opposite-a true believer. and 2) His research, spurious at best, does not reveal what the media is reporting it reveals.
Normally, we could say–“OK. Case closed. The guy’s a lying hacker or a hacking liar or some combination thereof. But since this is the left and since their willing accomplices have propagated the myth for so long, people are determined to believe it. People want to believe they are living in the most difficult, most important, most serious time–hubris, you know? It’s kind of sad that it has to come to this. But facts are facts: One can no longer accept anything “scientific” on global warming unless it comes from skeptics. What’s that tell you about the nature of science. The only guy who makes any sense at all on the non-skeptic side is Bjorn Lomborg. He’s saying essentially, “we think AGW is happening. There’s some evidence there. But there isn’t the kind of evidence that should make us alter our way of life–and, in fact, we can adapt to warming. History tells us that warming periods are far better for people. So, let’s learn about that rather than decry it.” But the left won’t even listen to him.
If you need another reason to vote Barack Obama out of office–the AGW argument is a pretty good one. And quite frankly, it’s a reason to avoid Mitt Romney, too. That guy is Obama-lite. I’m not a big Rick Perry fan, but on AGW he’s right: Ain’t happening–and if it is, let’s adapt.
