As even die-hard enthusiasts for the global warming scare campaign begin to admit that they are losing the battle to keep the public alarmed, it is time to examine how this doomsday movement has been sustained for two decades.
A 2/28 Wall Street Journal piece by Holman W. Jenkins Jr ("Jenkins: Personal Score-Settling Is the New Climate Agenda"), started out with a great recitation of efforts to silence and marginalize critics of man-caused global warming, describing them "indications of a political movement turned to defending its self-image as its cause goes down the drain."
Much like other recent articles analyzing the impending death of the global warming crisis, Jenkins fails to ask a simple question: what kept the whole so-called global warming crisis from circling the drain for the last two decades?
The crisis was arguably dead on arrival from the early 1990s when skeptical climate scientists offered science-based criticisms that apparently fatally undermined those of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which Al Gore unquestioningly endorsed. It should have been no surprise to anyone that Gore and his enviro-activists friends felt a need to marginalize climate scientist skeptics in the eyes of the public, to the point where nobody would ever give the time of day to them. Gore and friends ultimately boiled their message down to an easily memorized 3-point mantra around 1996: "the science is settled" / "skeptic scientists are industry-corrupted" / "reporters may ignore skeptics for the prior two reasons".

Bump for later reading.
It’s kinda hard to convince people when they’re freezing and shoveling snow ... :-) ...
I don’t know. The idiots at the comments section under the “admit” link seem quite delusional still.
DemoKKKrats appear to be trying to double down on all the stupidest **** that they do, including global warming...
The liars are now in position.
They are now in charge.
IN CHARGE OF EVERY(BLEEPING) THING.
Iffen they run the show—ANY show-they’re LIARS.
I read a few and ended up with vertigo trying to understand their “logic.”
They are entirely blinded by their ideology.
10 degrees here, we’ve had 5 or 6 days above 30f here this year, 4 days till April. I’m freezing my butt off with all this climate change
It doesn’t help that they’ve tried to change the message from Global cooling, to warming, to “change” and are now stuck somewhere between the last two.
Meanwhile, in the west, the winter was abnormally warm. And a record setting warm winter in Alaska.
It was so hot in Australia they had to suspend the tennis tournament. South America has had record warmth and no rain. Brazil is facing electricity shortages because the power dams have no water to generate with.
the Earth has been warming or cooling for 4 billion years. The Earth will continue to warm and cool till the Sun consumes the Earth despite what man does. Adapt or die, man is on Earth for the ride, not to steer it.
