If Al Gore’s lucrative Chicken-Little routine completely falls apart, it will be due in no small part to the fact that some of his “scientists” are violating the basic tenet of successfully pulling off a large-scale scheme: Get your doomsday stories straight:
Last week, White House science czar John Holdren told members of the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming that changes in global temperatures could mean a rise in sea levels of 6 feet or more in a century.
But Jane Lubchenco, administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, told the same committee on the same day that changes in global temperatures could mean a rise in sea levels of up to 3.5 feet in this century.
Holdren and Lubchenco were the only two witnesses called to testify at the Global Warming committee’s Dec. 2 hearing, which was titled “The State of Climate Science.”
I’m going to assume they’re both right and prepare for a 9.5 foot rise in the level of the oceans. In any case, it’s safe to assume based on this data that Al Gore now owns a large chunk of the boating and SCUBA industries.
In the meantime in Copenhagen at the climate summit that continues to fall apart, temperatures are rising as representatives of “poor countries” have staged a walkout as the fight over who gets how much of your pie rages on like sharks going after chum. This is about transfer of wealth, not the environment, and the current plan doesn’t transfer the wealth nearly fast enough to suit some.
And just when you thought you couldn’t trust the climate change bunch any less, it was announced that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez and Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe will also attend the summit and speak to delegates. Well thank God, now the accounting will be more on the up-and-up!
It only makes sense that when you’re engaging in theft that you’d seek the advice of experts in looting.
