A week ago I scribbled a little piece about CERN and Global Warming.
I was accused of several things. I was told I wasn’t a climatologist or even a scientist. This is true. I was told that the science is established. I argued that one. I was told that the whole scientific community took an opposing view. I debated that one also. I make no apologies for regurgitating the subject.
Do you remember the Polar Bears? Do you remember how we were told that those cute cuddly animals were in grave danger of extinction because of the ice caps disappearing? My, how that galvanised the world and electrified the cause of Global Warming! Well, apparently their golden boy who originated this scare is now being investigated for “integrity issues". Oh dear, oh dear! This is indeed a blow against The Great Cause. However, I doubt that one snippet by itself is going to derail the Global Warming bandwagon, though it should please lovers of Polar Bears.
But what happens when one of the World’s largest scientific communities casts more than doubts on the integrity of the Alarmists? What would happen if NASA turned around and said that there were huge discrepancies between the Alarmists data and the truth? They have. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear! Apparently carbon dioxide isn’t the great evil we thought it was. Apparently the Alarmists models are wrong. What’s worse is that this new evidence is based on accurate measurements and not just a hypothetical model or one of Al Gore’s wet dreams. I would imaging there are a few red faces around? They are still fighting a rear-guard action after The East Anglia fiasco, and now this?
But as I said before, this whole lark has gone too far. Governments can’t suddenly forget their carbon taxes and their carbon trading. They are making too much money.
Why do I get the impression that if young Johnny McGregor finds a dead seal in the Outer Hebrides, there will be banner headlines throughout the world proclaiming that the seal is irrefutable proof that Global Warming is worse than we thought?
But we won’t hear a whisper about NASA’s findings?
