And They Call Themselves Scientists

Anthropogenic climate change cultists are forced to retreat again:

Scientists have been forced to withdraw a study on projected sea level rise due to global warming after finding mistakes that undermined the findings.

The study, published in 2009 in Nature Geoscience, one of the top journals in its field, confirmed the conclusions of the 2007 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It used data over the last 22,000 years to predict that sea level would rise by between 7cm and 82cm by the end of the century.

What is interesting about this particular report is that scientists don't know if see levels will rise or fall, only that the method by which they reached their conclusions are wrong. To me, that seems to sum up what is wrong with the entire anthropogenic climate change movement.

We don't know if the world is getting warmer, or colder, or even if we are looking at the right factors and variables. All we know for certain is that it has been warmer for short periods of time, and far colder for much longer periods of time, and that the sea has been both higher and lower than it is now.

In our arrogance, we assume that whatever is now is "correct" and that variations are bad, and that somehow we must be responsible.

It is clear that you don't understand the science. The One has clearly indicated that the science is true and right. I am sure that if you asked, he would explain it to you again.

But don't worry, he has a plan. By eliminating all business activity in the US and raising taxes on those of us who would presume to seek wealth, he will lower the temperature, or raise it depending on the need.

The same is true for the health care issue. The One has indicated that we sinned by charging for medical services and developing insurance plans that did not cover everything at a rate that is lower than the note on your boat. He and the other almighty have tried to fix the problem before by insuring all older individuals and paying their bills at 20% of the actual cost. This did not work because we are undeserving and ignorant. Now, he will tax us do that we can pay less or is it more. We will have plenty of time to comtemplate these issues as we wait for the doctor and our turn for care, if we are deserving.

Listen up, you wingnut deniers. Just be grateful that Obama and his insane clown posse haven't suggested human sacrifices as a way to impeded global warming.

Oh, wait a minute.....never mind.

Hey, come on, give Obama a break, the seas have, in fact, been receding. Huh? Since 2004? Hmm, how can we blame Bush for that?

I've always been amused by the "The seas are rising!" hysteria. Well, yeah, they've been rising for the last few centuries. What's amusing is that the rate of rise actually seems to be slowing.

They're not scientists- it's a religion to them. Like most, I've been documenting their worship of the Green God on my blog. False idols and all that.

I guess this is what Darwin would call ... The Narcissism of the Species
