Truth will out

Even in the most closed and totalitarian society, like Stalin's USSR, the truth will eventually come out. As it did with the crackpot theories of Lysenko so it is now happening with the myth of human caused global warming.

From Express.co.uk (and don't we always have to go to the foreign press for the truth these days):

THE world’s leading climate change body has been accused of losing credibility after a damning report into its research practices.

A high-level inquiry into the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found there was “little evidence” for its claims about global warming.

It also said the panel had emphasised the negative impacts of climate change and made “substantive findings” based on little proof.

The review by the InterAcademy Council (IAC) was launched after the IPCC’s hugely embarrassing 2007 benchmark climate change report, which contained exaggerated and false claims that Himalayan glaciers could melt by 2035.

The panel was forced to admit its key claim in support of global warming was lifted from a 1999 magazine article. The report was based on an interview with a little-known Indian scientist who has since said his views were “speculation” and not backed by research.

Independent climate scientist Peter Taylor said last night: “The IPCC’s credibility has been deeply dented and something has to be done. It can’t just be a matter of adjusting the practices. They have got to look at what are the consequences of having got it wrong in terms of what the public think is going on. Admitting that it needs to reform means something has gone wrong and they really do need to look at the science.”

Climate change sceptic David Holland, who challenged leading climate change scientists at the University of East Anglia to disclose their research, said: “The panel is definitely not fit for purpose. What the IAC has said is substantial changes need to be made.”

The global warming house of cards is collapsing whether the ruling class is ready with a new hobgoblin to terrorize the population into surrendering their wealth and freedom or not.

What will they do?

One option they have is to go ahead and let the AGW myth join the other inhabitants of the unmarked graveyard of discarded lies while massaging the current severe recession into a global depression.

Another Great Depression would give the ruling party all the excuse it needed to restrict freedom, jack up taxes and nationalize industry after industry.

You can see the advantage of it from Obama's point of view. The American public has resisted every element of his agenda and are now set to cast his party out of power in the November elections. A Great Depression with widespread (25-30% unemployment) and mass starvation across the nation might just render the population docile enough to be collectivized without a fight.

This is why the November elections are so vitally important. We must not only defeat the Democrats (a virtual given the way things are now) but we must also defeat the entrenched establishment Republican "go along to get along" leadership.

We must replace the people who are currently calling the shots for House and Senate Republicans with a new breed of GOP lawmaker who does not even read the New York Times or the Washington Post, much less care what those dying old ruling party propaganda sheets say about them.

The GOP must be led by men and women who have the strength of character to remain eternally outsiders inside the beltway. Who care more about doing the right thing for the nation than they do about being invited to the right cocktail parties and accepted into the right golf foursomes.
