Anthropogenic GW, Greatest Fraud in History?

James Lewis makes a good case, while the Goracle is ridiculed in the WaPo by resident funnyman Dana Milbank during his ice-storm appearance in front of Congress waving his arms about the sky about to fall on all of us. Here's a tidbit:
Scientists get seduced by enticing ideas and bits of evidence all the time. That’s why every scientist I’ve ever known is a thorough-going skeptic, even about his or her own data. Especially about one’s own data, because one’s career is on the line if it doesn’t check out. So we need skepticism in ourselves and others. Good science honors the rational skeptic.

Which is why it’s beyond outrageous that AGW believers are publicly attacking thoughtful skeptics — not on the facts, but on their sheer temerity in doubting their precious orthodoxy.

According to the Guardian:

James Hansen, one of the world’s leading climate scientists, will today call for the chief executives of large fossil fuel companies to be put on trial for high crimes against humanity and nature, accusing them of actively spreading doubt about global warming in the same way that tobacco companies blurred the links between smoking and cancer.

That is Stalinism; it is never, ever done in real science. Stalin shot real scientists and promoted scientific frauds who helped to kill Soviet food production. Right there we know we’re looking at political corruption and not real science.

Hansen, of course, is the real criminal in this funhouse mirror parody of the mad scientist followed by pitchfork-waving "climatologists" and egged on by the silly Veep who lost the 2000 election by a combination of low-IQ dorkiness and sheer stupidity. The Gorebot-Goracle is now a rich man wearing a worthless Nobel Prize, devalued by the series of lowlifes [Arafat, Krugman, Carter, et al.] awarded by a bunch of dumb Norwegians.

Back when a Nobel Prize meant something, Nobel [Physics] Winner Richard Feynman prophetically warned of Cargo Cult Science, the best description of Anthropogenic Global Warming that could ever be devised.

Criminal-in-Chief Hansen is the Torquemada [or perhaps Lavrenti Beria?] of the new religious terrorism overtaking fake science when it is confronted with the scientific method and healthy scepticism.

UPDATEI find The Reference Frame makes my point much better than I have above about Feynman and which he might have said about the nitwittery of the Anthropogenic Global Warming populists with their Chicken Little hysterics.
