HUNTSVILLE, AL—If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? That’s the question I used to answer a question posed by a colleague just last week during a discussion about the global climate change propaganda and why the media and alarmists keep pushing the anthropogenic global warming message.
The reason I used the old cliché was to make the point the mainstream media didn’t exactly put Climategate on page one, above the fold or lead the broadcast. When the emails were leaked out of the University of East Anglia, UK, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNCB,
CNBC, The New York Times, et al, barely even gave them attention; if you were part of the FOX News viewership, you heard about it or read British print media—otherwise, zero, zilch, nada, bupkis.
Now, two books detail what the emails reveal—Al Gore and the global warming alarmists don’t rely on science when trying to prove a scientific point, instead, they use consensus building techniques. The Great Global Warming Blunder by Dr. Roy Spencer, a climatologist and former NASA scientist and Climategate by Brian Sussman, a meteorologist, expose the “science” behind global warming for what it is, manipulated data, rigged studies, and grant fetching crying wolf alarmism.
