This year will be remembered for two things.
First, it was the year when the scientific data showed that the cosmic scare over global warming may well turn out to be just that - yet another vastly inflated scare.
Second, it was the year when the hysteria generated by all the bogus science behind this scare finally drove those who rule over us, including Gordon "Plastic Bags" Brown, wholly out of their wits.
It's apparent that lousy dumb politicos [Al Bore comes to mind] have completely hyped and hystericized the concerns about pollution and climate into some sort of Cargo Cult hyperspace Science [h/t: Richard Feynman].
By now, according to the Gore-bots serially mendacious "Inconvenient Truth[iness]," we in Florida should be battening down the hatches for the incessant hurricanes that his prize-winning Oscar flick predicted due to GWB's not signing Kyoto. Katrina was a media scam just like the Plamegate fiasco, where blame-game fingerpointing and scapegoating eventually blamed the wrong people [Louisiana Gov Blanco was at fault for not even requesting USG aid for days] in order to achieve spurious dishonest agendas. Booker notes:
On the one hand we have the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change coming up with yet another of its notoriously politicised reports, hyping up the scare by claiming that world surface temperatures have been higher in 11 of the past 12 years (1995-2006) than ever previously recorded.
But the truth is exactly the opposite:
This carefully ignores the latest US satellite figures showing temperatures having fallen since 1998, declining in 2007 to a 1983 level - not to mention the newly revised figures for US surface temperatures showing that the 1930s had four of the 10 warmest years of the past century, with the hottest year of all being not 1998, as was previously claimed, but 1934.
And urban legend is produced by the constant repetition of falsehoods, as Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao and ridiculous mountebanks and impostors in the UN & the US Hollyweird media complex understand.
As the famous movie director John Ford said after one of his screenplays was shown to be actually factually false despite widespread popular belief to the contrary:
"Print the legend."
