“Growing ice, the mob and red-faced professors: Warmists are having yet another bad week,” says a not unhappy Lawrence Solomon.
There’s bad news from the Arctic and the Antarctic, from organised crime and the fields of censorship, of warmist luminaries like Stephen Schneider and warmist grails like carbon trading. No wonder there’s so many red faces, the reasons for which are all summarised in Solomon’s article, Global Blushing. But as he concludes,
“This week of embarrassment for the global warmists does not look all that different from most weeks. Overzealous scientists and their enablers have a habit of selecting the data they like and setting the rest aside. Some — Schneider among them — have even justified exaggerating the dangers in the cause of making the public take note. When they get caught they often resort to obfuscations and cover-ups.
“And red faces become the norm.”
UPDATE 2: “Warming Uncool” notes Tim Blair’s headline:
“It has finally happened,” writes Marc Morano at the Climate Depot. “We have reached the ‘tipping point.’ 2009 can now be officially declared the year the media lost their faith in man-made global warming fears.”
