The most important thing to do when considering the veracity of a model is check it for its predictive value. For example, have a look at what Al Gore said about the height of the ocean by 2014 and what it is now. Then see how much he paid for his ocean front property in San Francisco. Alternatively, read the above linked Fjordman article on the EU why why it should be dismantled from 2008 and see if the past 6 years have proven his models to be accurate or Gore’d. If you see it as I do, one begins to understand that the money is always in fiction.
(It would be difficult to understand why the Obama admin would be so against this person when the reasons for supporting him are many times those of the Ikhwan which Obama does support. This remains true even if you believe that Obama isn’t actually supporting the Muslim Brotherhood but just believes in the first Egyptian revolution.)
