Less Than Zero

UPDATE: Greenpeace too.

Not only is climate change not settled, it's not science. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) calls itself "a scientific body." Yet, as Donna Laframboise details, that organization frequently cites to and relies on papers published by the World Wildlife Fund, an environmental pressure group. Would oil-industry studies assessing climate (as opposed to company practice) be similarly welcome? Not.

And apart from the question of bias, few such reports appear to have been "peer reviewed" -- they're opinion pieces. Add the news that NASA and others are scrubbing cites to delete now-discredited glacier and natural disaster papers -- suggesting warming alarmists are worried.

That sound was the last shred of climate zealot credibility shattering.

To anyone with a clue, they haven't had any credibility for years. To anyone who doesn't have a clue, The Facts aren't going to sway them in the least. You cannot alter True Faith with Facts. And that's what the religion of AGW is based on -- deep and abiding Faith.

About the only thing that will change their Faith is people constantly laughing in their faces about it. As long as the weather keeps cooling, that will happen.

One good spate of unseasonal warmth, one bad year with a couple-three hurricanes, and The Cry of Chicken Little will once more resound throughout the land.
