Truth or???

Believers in AGW often cite that the science is settled and anyone who disagrees with their belief is against science. But many on the left, both scientific and political, in weaker moments have revealed what they truly believe and it is frightening.

Stephen Schneider, Stanford Professor of Climatology, lead author of many IPCC reports has said, “We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination… So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts… Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.”

Sir John Houghton, first chairman of IPCC, was quoted as saying, ”Unless we announce disasters no one will listen.”

Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace articulated, “It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.”

The former Senator and presidential aspirant Timothy Wirth, who is now President of the UN Foundation, “We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”

Christine Stewart, Former Canadian Minister of the Environment said, “No matter if the science of global warming is all phony, climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”

Emeritus Professor Daniel Botkin is quoted as saying, “The only way to get our society to truly change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe.”

What is frightening is not what these people say but how many people believe them. In fact, this may be the most scary statement of all. “Climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon – the man-made natural disaster.” Barack Obama, US Presidential Candidate
It appears that the real manmade natural disaster is the mistaken belief in man caused global warming.
