Remember When The Science Was Settled?

Remember when we were told time and time again that the science surrounding man caused global warming was settled, that the time for debate was over, that the time for action was now? Well, as each week goes by, we learn more and more why climate alarmists did not want to debate or actually discuss the science

The impact of global warming has been exaggerated by some scientists and there is an urgent need for more honest disclosure of the uncertainty of predictions about the rate of climate change, according to the Government’s chief scientific adviser.

John Beddington was speaking to The Times in the wake of an admission by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that it grossly overstated the rate at which Himalayan glaciers were receding.

Professor Beddington said that climate scientists should be less hostile to sceptics who questioned man-made global warming. He condemned scientists who refused to publish the data underpinning their reports.

He said that public confidence in climate science would be improved if there were more openness about its uncertainties, even if that meant admitting that sceptics had been right on some hotly-disputed issues.

What we have seen is a severe lack of honest disclosure. In fact, we have seen quite a bit of false data used, manipulated data used, and scare tactics based on fantasy. Why? Money, prestige, and/or power. It’s that simple. And so many folks, mostly on the Left, bought into this nonsense, and refused to question the science. Most of the rest of us understand that global warming, as caused mostly by Nature, is real, and fought back using Reality Mode.

Hopefully, the time will soon be here when we can honestly discuss true environmental issues on an adult playing field with these alarmists, as well as the need for alternative energy sources without the AGW hysteria.
