FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE

Consensus? What Consensus?

For the past 2 years, the Left has been telling us that the Global Warming debate is over. The science is settled. The numbers are in.

"The scientific debate is over. We're done."
- CNN's Miles O'Brien on July 23, 2007
(O'Brien also declared on CNN on February 9, 2006 that scientific skeptics of man-made catastrophic global warming "are bought and paid for by the fossil fuel industry.")


"While some people claim there are lots of skeptical climate scientists out there, if you actually try to find one, you keep turning up the same two dozen or so. These skeptics are endlessly recycled by the denial machine, so someone not paying close attention might think there are lots of them out there -- but that's not the case."
- Andrew Dessler in the eco-publication Grist Magazine on November 21, 2007


"This discussion is behind us. It's over. The diagnosis is clear, the science is unequivocal -- it's completely immoral, even, to question now, on the basis of what we know, the reports that are out, to question the issue and to question whether we need to move forward at a much stronger pace as humankind to address the issues."
- UN special climate envoy Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland on May 10, 2007


"More than half of the mainstream media have rejected the scientific consensus implicitly — and I say 'rejected,' perhaps it's the wrong word. They have failed to report that it is the consensus and instead have chosen … balance as bias."
- Al Gore at the Media Ethics Summit II in 2007


"The misconception that there's disagreement about the science has been deliberately created by a relatively small group of people."
- Al Gore from "An Inconvenient Truth"


"The debate is no longer over society's role in global warming, it is a matter of degrees."
- NBC reporter Ann Thompson on August 14, 2007


"After extensive searches, ABC News has found no such debate [on global warming]."
- ABC reporter Bill Blakemore on August 30, 2006


Do you see what I mean? These people seem to be absolutley convinced that there are no credible voices speaking out against the Religion of Global Warming.

Or, at least, that's what they want YOU to believe. But, it just ain't the truth.

I've already told you about the Petition Project, which has been signed by over 19,000 scientists who wish to speak out against the so-called "consensus." Also, the Senate recently issued a report documenting over 400 scientists from more than two dozen countries who object to the theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming:

These scientists, many of whom are current and former participants in the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), criticized the climate claims made by the UN IPCC and former Vice President Al Gore.

Many of the scientists featured in this report consistently stated that numerous colleagues shared their views, but they will not speak out publicly for fear of retribution. Atmospheric scientist Dr. Nathan Paldor, Professor of Dynamical Meteorology and Physical Oceanography at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, author of almost 70 peer-reviewed studies, explains how many of his fellow scientists have been intimidated.

"Many of my colleagues with whom I spoke share these views and report on their inability to publish their skepticism in the scientific or public media."

The distinguished scientists featured in this new report are experts in diverse fields, including: climatology; oceanography; geology; biology; glaciology; biogeography; meteorology; oceanography; economics; chemistry; mathematics; environmental sciences; engineering; physics and paleoclimatology. Some of those profiled have won Nobel Prizes for their outstanding contribution to their field of expertise and many shared a portion of the UN IPCC Nobel Peace Prize with Vice President Gore.

Read the full list of scienitists, then tell me that there is a "consensus." Al Gore and these other left-wing media hacks are liars. I don't know how to state it any other way.


*SIDE NOTE: As eager as the mainstream media is to bombard us with stories about any report critical of the War in Iraq or those which seem to put a black-eye on the Bush Administration, I wonder how long it will take them to report this. I'm not holding my breath.
