  1. Forty years ago the exact same Club of Rome idiots were saying that the world was cooling rapidly and that we were headed for another ice age and that it was all the fault of the evil white man and his damnable industrial civilization. Then the climate started warming in the 70s, and the Club of Rome idiots deftly switched from cooling to warming, the media did not contradict, and the switch took place without anybody noticing. Strangely, I have yet to meet a left-winger who has any recollection or knowledge of this strange switch from cooling to warming. Lefties seem to have the ability to “unknow” facts that disagree with their world view, even if they were quite familiar with those facts when they “knew” them.

    Now, we may well be in for another cool period, and if that happens, they will switch again, the media will say nothing, and they will continue to get away with perpetrating fraud against the people of earth. We’re all being played for total fools by these people. The key to the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes is the mainstream media. That’s what it is – that’s the principal of how the thing works. If the right wing notices that the Emperor is naked, the ruling elite can say, “I don’t watch Fox News”, and the conversation is over before it starts. Only the MSM can make a thing “true”, and they have it within their power to simply ignore things, safe in the knowledge that those things will disappear after a couple of days without the oxygen of their attention.

    Michael Manning is a rent seeking scientist with a bad reputation.

    Reading this 5 page article you can see this research started in the 1960s and now after almost 40 years (2 generations) is the scientific community catching up.

    The questions is this in the models formulated by the bureaucrat of NASA Hansen and Michael Mann. I doubt it because it is not “accepted” science. I believe that their models are leaving out something major areobiology. So how could are their predictions. So far they have been of for 2 decades now.

  5. Michael Mann is wrong, which is not a bad thing. There have been many scientists who have been wrong and had their theories shot down, and it still advanced science. Of course some have been figuratively crucified like Pons and Fleischmen. Although they were later proven correct by scientists at Monterrey

    What is horrible is when Mann and people like Al Gore say the science is settled and go out to crucify, & cut funding in a vindictive way.

  6. The IPCC claims its models show a pause of 15 years can be expected. But that means that after only a very few years more, they will have to admit they are wrong.’ – dailymail.co.uk/

    Really? They’ll admit they were wrong? With so much money and power at stake?

  7. The left will never admit a mistake, doing this would mean admitting they are infallible, their egos would never survive doing that.
