We believe in one God the Global Climate Change, Destroyer of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
A proponent of Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) told me the other day that “97% of Climate Scientists know AGW is a FACT!” (his words exactly). I called him a liar. And I never touched Google (or Bing).
What has gotten lost in the latest development of AGW, the East Anglia emails and source code, and indeed it has been lost for many years, is that AGW (call it Global Warming or call it Global Climate Change – but it is neither) is not a fact. It is not even a theory. And if 97% of a bunch of people want to call it a fact, then they may be adherents of the idea of AGW, they may be acolytes of AGW, but they are not scientists.
For in the real world, science is not religion. And facts are very scarce. Science recognizes very few facts (1+1=2 is a fact, Evolution is a theory, not a fact, AGW is not even a theory, just an hypothesis). And the method to obtain “facthood” is long and complicated and also well detailed. And any scientist knows this.
And in one Lord Al Gore, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of Phil Jones before all worlds, God of God, CO2 of CO2, Global Warming of Climate Change, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father by whom all things were made;
But AGW has been thrown out of science. It is no longer in that realm. It is now a religion. You can see it whenever an article, post, comment or news story is printed about it. The adherents do not talk of hypotheses and testing and trial and error, of proof or method. They talk of facts. The fact that any reasonable, sane, non-idiotic, non-moronic person has to know is true if they know anything. There can be no doubt.
Kind of like Torquemada and the Spanish Inquisition. The truth is not relevant. Dissent is squashed! Dissenters are called names, compared to Nazis and flat earthers, ridiculed and in some cases, threatened! Yes, they do all that to protect their god, AGW.
who for us polluters, and for our pollution, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Climate Research Unit of the Hockey Stick, and was made polluter, and was crucified also for us polluters.
They deny all other facts that do not fit into their creed. They will use a source if it agrees with them, but woe to that source that turns against them! Heretics must be made example of!
When the truth of the deceit was revealed by a hacker or whistle blower, the normal reaction of true scientists would have been anger and a call to clean up the morass and get the house in order! So that integrity could be restored to the field. Indeed, many scientists in other fields are doing just that. Calling for a full accounting and audit to try to restore some integrity to the climate field.
He suffered and was de-polluted, and the third day he rose again according to the Tricks of Michael Mann, and ascended into the heavens as a non-greenhouse gas, and sitteth on the right hand of Rajendra Pachauri. And he shall come again with glory to judge both the polluters and greenies, whose kingdom shall have no CO2.
But what are the climatologists, that “97%”, are doing is trying to spin what “hide the decline” and “tricks” are. Ignoring the suppression of dissenting views revealed in the emails, and the source code that shows a hockey stick in every box. They are not concerned about being lied to (did they already know?), but trying to explain away 2 phrases. That in the grand scheme of things are really irrelevant to the discrediting of the science. THEY discredited their science. They made it a religion - with willing high priests like Al Gore and Rajendra Pachauri. Neither of which know word one about science, but that does not matter to the faithful.
They are quick to point out that “only climatology scientists” are qualified to speak on the issue, but just as quick to cite a source from someone who is not in the field. The drink the kool-aid of denial of those who tarnish and threaten the skeptics, because it fits with their creed, not due to any insightful revelations.
And we believe in East Anglia University, NASA Climate Research Unit and the Met Office, who proceedeth from the Al Gore and Michael Mann, who with the Michael Mann and Phil Jones together is worshipped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets.
One of the favorite tactics I have seen is jumping on the Orwellian Newspeak bandwagon. All of a sudden, lag becomes lead. Magically! How? By the wave of a climatologists written word! Data shown to have been deficient is massaged into the realm of gospel, with no doubt allowed. Pish Posh the idea that the data was massaged to support the message instead of being used to find the truth.
The sad part is that they are destroying what they want the world to believe is the second (or third) coming of the messiah. For in suppressing dissent, hiding data, attacking skeptics, and trying to force a blind faith to their new Creed, they may be damaging the real science that could advance their dogma scientifically, instead of religiously.
In the end, AGW could be a valid theory and in time a fact. But because it is now a religion, we will probably never know if it is valid, or a hoax. The “Chosen” have made sure that no more science can take place, only blind faith. And that is not going to sway any more people. Just alienate them.
And we believe one holy Global Warming and apostolic Climate change. We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of pollution. And we look for the resurrection of the ecology, and the life of the world without men.
