Quote of the Day
Whether you're an elderly couple in mid-Wales who have just had 20 per cent knocked off the value of your retirement cottage by the new wind farm on the hill opposite, or you're a tribesman in the South East Asian jungle whose virgin forest home has been trashed to make way for a palm oil plantation to grow eco-friendly biofuels, or you're a scientist in New Zealand who has been hounded out of your job because your research doesn't fit the "global warming" narrative, or you're a science teacher in Ohio who is obliged, whether you like it or not, to lecture your charges on the dread perils of climate change, or you're a Republican senatorial candidate who has been targeted as a "denier" in a green attack dog campaign financed by Tom Steyer, you're all victims of the same global scam: a scam perpetrated by a tiny handful of individuals whose junk statistical manipulation of the global climate records have transformed routine weather patterns into the world's biggest and most influential ever science scare story. -- James Delingpole
Very uncomfortable with the word "scam." It implies a mens rea
that I suspect does not exist for most of the warmies -- but I love the enumeration -- though far from complete -- of the costs.

If by "warmies" you mean your FB friends who are down for Gaia, nature and cute furry creatures then I'll agree with you but Delingpole called out "a tiny handful of individuals" who manipulated global climate record statistics. Our friends, FB and otherwise, who have chosen to place their complete and Absolute faith in those manipulated statistics, are mere foot soldiers in the movement. (Or, to the extent they advocate theft from their neighbor in the name of this "hoax", they are budding National Socialists.)
