Skip to comments.A Memo To The Global Warming Cult
Posted on 12/13/2009 6:25:07 AM PST by Reaganesque
Dear global warming fanatics,
Please. Stop. Youre embarrassing yourselves. Take a deep breath, and try to understand what has happened to you during the past month. You need to accept that your dreams of global domination are over. Increasingly shrill attempts to terrify the masses into ignoring Climagate are only making you look foolish. The con job youve been running for the last thirty years is busted forever.
I know this is difficult for you to accept. Things seemed to be going well. Youve got the cap-and-trade bill lurking over the United States, ready to shatter an already weakened economy plagued with unemployment problems, and effectively end Americas role as a dominant industrial power. Your beliefs have been instituted in public schools as the official state religion, whose rituals and incantations are forced upon millions of school children. The wealthy royalty of popular culture is pleased to produce an endless string of movies, music, and television programming to market your beliefs. Your critics were marginalized to the point where the presidential candidate from the 2000 Democrat ticket felt comfortable referring to them as Nazis.
I can see how losing all of this cultural and political power in a few short weeks would be stunning. I hope the shock has dissipated enough for you to understand where we are now, and where we are going from here.
You arent going to frighten the world into reducing the human population. Youre not going to succeed in terrorizing free people into embracing totalitarianism, to fend off a phantasmal catastrophe that no democratic nation has the discipline to combat. Were not going to politely ignore swarms of private jets and limos ferrying you to carbon-belching climate summits, where you draw up plans for the Western proletariat to live as primitive hunter-gatherers. Were not going to let a pampered elitist, who once flew around the world to attend cricket practice, tell us that we need to make do without air travel and ice water.
Well never be foolish enough to allow a band of fanatics to use peer review to rule all dissenting opinion out-of-bounds, then declare themselves the proud owners of a mighty consensus. You global-warming fanatics underestimate how much you needed those tactics to gain power. Youll never have that kind of unchallenged authority again, because we will never stop demanding the raw data, and well drown you in laughter when you mutter something about deleting it by accident. We will never forget that you began with a conclusion and sought to harvest data that supported it the exact opposite of the scientific method.
Your arrogant condescension to your critics is horribly misplaced. You have completely lost the ability to call anyone stupid. Your capacity for reason is the matter in question. Your status as scientists is on probation. It will take years of faithful adherence to the scientific method, and rigorous efforts to test and disprove your hypotheses, before you can regain the trust of thoughtful men and women. Until you have accomplished this, the attitude we expect from you is humility and contrition. You have much to answer for. The time for you to issue pompous lectures is over. The time for you to give sworn testimony may soon begin. Were a year away from the American voters first opportunity to respond to the politicians who terrorized them by waving a loaded cap-and-trade bill in their faces.
We ask you to stop propagandizing our children, because it wont work any more. We will prepare them to deal with you. Informed parents across the industrialized world will explain what Climagate means to their children, and prepare them with questions your public-education minions cannot answer. The vindicated critics youve been working to silence will fill the post-Climagate void with publications, and some of them will become best-sellers. Youll always have your political allies and fellow travelers, but youll never have a population ignorant of climate science to push around again.
You can stop trying to make Climagate go away by ignoring it, or lying about it. That wont work, either. Huge stories can no longer be suppressed by a handful of like-minded network executives and editors. Those glittering eyes you see in the darkness, beyond the comforting glow of the New York Times editorial board, are the massed ranks of the Internets Army of Davids. They are a feral mixture of blogging curiosity and search-engine memory. If you think theyre closing in around you well, its not just your imagination.
One of the worst sins you must answer for is the damage you have done to real science. We have much to learn about the Earth, its ecology, and its climate. We will not enhance our ability to learn those secrets by impoverishing ourselves in fit of primitive superstition and political opportunism. Desperate people dont do a good job of protecting the environment it is a job suitable only to vibrant nations of industry and technology. Those of us who still cherish independent thought, and the spirit of scientific inquiry, would like to resume our studies of the universe. Its difficult to hear the truth whispered in the tides, the breeze, and the solar wind over the hysterical jabbering of fanatics, and the angry demands of greedy politicians.
Update: Thanks to osogrande for pointing out a typo where I referred to Al Gore as the 2000 vice-presidential candidate. Ive corrected the mistake. I wanted to acknowledge the error, instead of claiming my original raw data was accidentally deleted.

Keep it up, the backlash is coming.
Soon to roll south.
Well writ by Doctor Zero!
40 degrees below zero Fahrenheit...now that's cold...
I feel warmer already here near the Socal beach....but I would like it a bit warmer.
Even though it is nearly a 100 degrees difference at the moment.
Beautiful summary of my feelings.
If you go to the link and scroll down to the comments, this gem is contained in one of the comments:
‘... science doesnt work like that. If you really, really wish for it, it will come true is not Newtons fourth law of gravity...”
I laughed so hard I was snorting.
Bravo! Great article.
Global warming has been a socialist's dream and if these leaks hadn't stopped it it could have been the vehicle to socializing the US economy an creating a world socialist government. The left is so close to this dream that they will continue to scream global warming in hopes that enough politicians will listen and sell us all into world socialism.
Large corporation like GE have bought into global warming both as a marketing tool and as a pipeline to massive government funds. No global warming and the pipeline to the US Treasury is gone.
Global warming hucksters like Al Gore have been promoting global warming as a get rich quick scheme. Being on the bottom floor of any mandated carbon cap and trade could means billions of dollars. No global warming no money.
Lastly are the global warming zealots for whom global warming is a matter of religious dogma. They have ascribed to the notion that mankind simply by being on the planet despoils it and that human activity of any kind especially by evil corporations is killing perfect mother earth. They are willing to forgo the use of toilet paper, have no children, eat no meat, wear no leather, transport themselves to save the earth rallies by bicycle and live in hovels made out of recycled materials and when they die have their bodies disposed in an ecologically sound manner all in worship to perfect mother earth. These are kooks who will persist in these beliefs regardless of any scientific data that says otherwise. They will continue to make hemp belts, live in communes and smoke pot.
Whoa! A might chilly.
Thank you so much for the ping, Ernest. This is gold.
The AP claims that the emails don’t prove the science was falsified. I guess we should just take their word for it since they have been so good at exposing liberal fraud. The media is as big of a joke as global warming.
