Via Greenfyre: Aye,
my friends… at long last, we now have a real answer to the age-old question,
Why have all the major scientific organizations worldwide been affirming that global warming is real and serious?
For decades, this question has stumped many a climate inactivist; and the standard answer — “it’s a worldwide conspiracy” — would’ve got one laughed out of the room. But that’ll happen no more! For Richard Lindzen has uncovered the shocking details of this huge conspiracy, or something:1
Another [factor] is the hierarchical nature of formal scientific organizations whereby a small executive council can speak on behalf of thousands of scientists as well as govern the distribution of ‘carrots and sticks’ whereby reputations are made and broken. […]
The influence of the environmental movement has effectively made support for global warming, not only a core element of political correctness, but also a requirement for the numerous prizes and awards given to scientists.
Indeed, life is tough for nonconformist scientists like Lindzen who have to scrape by with their meagre supply of prizes and awards. (While they’re not busy figuring out all the conspiracies and jetting all over the world to talk about them, that is.) This is so unlike, say, the life of global warming cultist William “Stoat” Connolley2 who, by virtue of his Warmist Cult membership, has accumulated so many professional accolades, including… um…
The myth of scientific consensus is also perpetuated in the web’s Wikipedia where climate articles are vetted by William Connolley, who regularly runs for office in England as a Green Party candidate.
…hmmmm. Anyway, it’s not merely always about the awards; sometimes, perhaps, maybe, it’s just due to people wanting to be “politically correct” because, um, it’s beneficial in some way or other:
That said, when it comes to professional societies, there is often no need at all for overt infiltration since issues like global warming have become a part of both political correctness and (in the US) partisan politics, and there will usually be council members who are committed in this manner.
And that’s not all: besides the politically correct scientists and the (compromised) professional societies, the gigantic scam of global warming is also promoted by corrupt governments and corporations, which makes the gigantic conspiracy so gigantic that the word “gigantic” can’t do it justice — the Mother of All Climate Conspiracies!
Indeed, Lindzen brings our attention to yet another shocking, shocking fact: the global warming theory was behind Enron’s collapse and the recent financial mess! 3
[…] we are already seeing that the tentative policy moves associated with ‘climate mitigation’ are contributing to deforestation, food riots, potential trade wars, inflation, energy speculation and overt corruption as in the case of ENRON (one of the leading lobbyists for Kyoto prior to its collapse). There is little question that global warming has been exploited [by] many governments and corporations (and not just by ENRON; Lehman Brothers, for example, was also heavily promoting global warming alarm, and relying on the advice of James Hansen, etc.) for their own purposes, but it is unclear to what extent such exploitation has played an initiating role in the issue.
Thus, the global warming scam is a very, very, very huge problem indeed. What can we do? Well, a good place to start is to expunge all uses of the word “validation”. To be honest, before reading Lindzen’s hard-hitting, straight-talking exposé, I didn’t know that “validation” was such an ideologically-charged word…
[…] it is entirely possible, in today’s scientific environment, that many scientists feel that it is the role of science to vindicate the greenhouse paradigm for climate change as well as the credibility of [climate] models. Comparisons of models with data are, for example, referred to as model validation studies rather than model tests.
One final note: Lindzen presented the above truths during an “invited closed-doors symposium” with a total of about 20 participants. In the world of climate
inactivism realism, this means that Lindzen’s paper had undergone the most rigorous and most thorough peer review by top-notch scientists in all the relevant fields who have Nobel Peace Prizes in Medicine and Physics and Biology. That’s rock-solid research you can trust… my friends.

- The name originally read “Bill ‘Stoat’ Connolley”, but was changed due to the intervention of warmist ninja inquisitors.
- Well, General Electric is bigger than Lehman Brothers, it agrees with global warming, and it still hasn’t collapsed… but of course it might collapse eventually, right? Right? Post hoc, ad hoc, ergo propter hoc.
