Truth Cannot Be Marginalized

______

Inhofe was first to declare global warming ‘the greatest hoax’

By: John Gizzi

It wasn’t very long ago that to question global warming was truly a threat to the earth was to be anti-science, hostile to the environment, or just plain dumb.

All that changed with “Climategate,” the sensational revelation in 2009 that many of the scientists involved in the formulation of global warming and reasoning behind it had actually “cooked” the research they were using. Leaked emails from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) revealed flawed and even doctored science and opened the floodgate of skepticism.

Today, there are easily more skeptics of global warming today than adherents. Support for many of the related causes of the pro-warming side—a carbon tax and “cap and trade” legislation to limit carbon emissions—have died down considerably. Sharp skepticism and tougher questions are now heard from its former advocates, among them Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Minnesota’s former Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty.

My Take - For those who don't remember when Inhofe was pretty much the "Lone Wolf" among public officials in standing against all of this insanity; McCain and others had big mouths that went along with their egos. I wondered then as I do now; how can such small intellects house such large egos. Even someone like me, who has only limited access to information, could clearly see that Anthropogenic Global Warming was a load of horsepucky. Of course perhaps the problem was that I was never motivated by the same science as John McCain and Newt Gengrich and other public figures.   I was motivated by the science that spoke truth. They were motivated by the science of statistic....AKA.....public opinion polls.
