“To capture the public imagination, we have to offer up some scary scenarios, make simplified dramatic statements and little mention of any doubts one might have. Each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective, and being honest.”– Dr Stephen Schneider, Oct 1989
It seems balance is a word the the climate lobby and their MSM surrogates are openly adverse to. Previously we heard the alarmists say “climate reporting is ‘too balanced’ , and now the alarmists are saying “false balance is required” (that’s a conundrum if I ever heard one). And also we recently hear they are claiming the right to discriminate against coal industry shrills (oh that’s us BTW) because of journalistic balance. Since when is balance about denying freedom of speech to those you disagree with. I’d also call this the abuse of power and abuse of civil rights.
However in welcoming news the media is starting to turn, big journalism (aka MSM) is making some interesting statements. More scientists also are beginning to speak out about climategate, see WUWT. I guess as scientists see the continual fabrication of data – like the latest – Bolivia shown to be a hot spot in the world but oops when checked there are no temperature stations in Bolivia.The Met Office continues its propaganda with claims warmest year ever means temperatures will remain flat – another worthless conundrum (oh and I’ll have that performance bonus thanks says the Met Office head). Its reasonable to believe the current record cold is proof of cold, but the chicken littles continue to tell us even though its cooling its still warming. Lots of us still remember the climategate themes of hide the decline and beefing up the alarmist ‘facts‘ – so credibility is something the alarmists and their media lap dogs no longer have on their side.
It would seem alarmist heaven is anything but rational or sensible, let alone transparent or accountable. And they want to control the finances of the world. Reality check – NO! Metaphorically speaking it looks like the alarmist brigade soon wont have any fingers left to cross!
