For the scientifically adept and honest people global warming is a huge embarrassment. Not only have the main base perpetrators been caught but also the institutions that house their activities have gone deep into the coverup. It’s just too much money to let integrity rule their actions. The global warming scheme has tens of thousands of people employed even though that seemingly high cost is miniscule compared to the harm to billions of people the stage two schemes of corrective measures would force on the innocent. A taxpaying family is out a few dollars each year now but the corrective measures could get to hundreds of dollars per month.
Its something far more dangerous that low intensity wars would be. Yet media and leadership are out of touch. Integrity be damned, so to speak.
Not everyone is lost. Some, only a few, get the message and act to preserve the integrity of science. It’s hard to resist all that money and notoriety. Al Gore is famed on falsehoods, sort of that Gary Hart idea “you can get real famous in just two weeks,” comment taken to a whole new level. That fame mixed with fear has flooded the scam with money. That leaves those with integrity out in the wilderness shouting at the emptiness.
But for those with an age past needing the career funded or the integrity to stand up to the snake oil sales pitch a little can be done. When its somebody very highly regarded, with an impeccable reputation and is slapping down a U.S. national association – its news – and an act worth our attention and respect.
But not by major media news in the U.S. so it’s up to a viral spread.
