I suppose verbally beating up on mental midgets like George Monbiot, is all too easy.  Thing is, somebody’s got to do it. He’s still trying to minimize the damage of the global warming theorists and their deception , their outright lies, being revealed as such. (And lest we forget, he’s been the one out on the front lines pushing their deception as science fact for years, now.) Observe:

George Monbiot, Global Warming Alarmist

George Monbiot, Global Warming Alarmist

I have seldom felt so alone. Confronted with crisis, most of the environmentalists I know have gone into denial. The emails hacked from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, they say, are a storm in a tea cup, no big deal, exaggerated out of all recognition. It is true that climate change deniers have made wild claims which the material can’t possibly support (the end of global warming, the death of climate science). But it is also true that the emails are very damaging.

The response of the greens and most of the scientists I know is profoundly ironic, as we spend so much of our time confronting other people’s denial. Pretending that this isn’t a real crisis isn’t going to make it go away. Nor is an attempt to justify the emails with technicalities. We’ll be able to get past this only by grasping reality, apologising where appropriate and demonstrating that it cannot happen again.

As Bugs Bunny used to say, what a maroon.  The “wild claims” that he mentions here are the fact of the matter.

So what we have here is a double irony.  Georgie’s busy remarking about the irony of Global Warming Alarmists and their denial as to how damaging this leak is, at East Anglia, while he himself goes into denial with them, complainig it’s not as bad as it looks. I am reminded once again of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, where King Arthur defeats the Black Knight by cutting off all his limbs, and the Black Knight response “it’s only a flesh wound” . Watching Monbiot squirm would be nearly as funny, were it not so damnably serious a subject. He’s trying to appear reasonable,  sure, but let’s face it, he comes off here as being nothing more than stupid and partisan, when he insists that there’s anything of credibility at all in the AGW theory.

And notice, please that from the first line, he makes it all very personal. His biggest concern is written first and then the chief place.   Monbiot has every ounce of his personal reputation on the line here.  After years of spreading nonsense as fact, he’s now in the scramble of his life to try and minimize the damage of that nonsense, and those lies, being revealed as such.  And he fails, miserably.

This is a pattern which has gone on for a generation and more.  We’ve been told since 1970 and slightly before that man was screwing up his own environment.  Funny thing is, the facts once revealed always seem to come out the opposite direction from the environmentalist Chicken Littles like Monbiot..  Not that it stops the global warming theorists from expounding on the matter and using their overcooked theories to try to push us back to the fourteenth century, insofar as technology goes.  They have never been daunted by facts, and have always been supported by the facts that they have made up for the purpose.

Monbiot is quite correct, that this is damaging to the global warming crowd.  Then again, as we’ve seen so often in the past, facts generally are. And as with most of the AGW crowd, (irony abounds) Monbiot’s  denial is palpable.

If you really want to dive into the level of deception going on here from these global warming alarmists, I would suggest strongly that you observe Marc Shepherd’s article in the The American Thinker day before yesterday. I’ll bet that Monbiot won’t ever address that column.

Mind you, that’s only one instance.  Again, I point to the new Zealand government’s climate advisory unit and its own bending of the figures .  I’ve mentioned it here the other day, but I will also mention that Bruce McQuain has a decent writeup of it, along with the charts to give it some bite. Monbiot won’t address that, either.

The only fraud going on here is those who are trying to tell us that the earth is dangerously warming up, and worse, that we had anything to do with it, or even that we could.  The facts are revealed now, and show that the only indication that we have of any kind of global warming whatsoever is generated by means of outright fraud. Global warming is manmade, in computer models.  Not in reality as we’ve been told and told. Monbiot has been at the head of the global warming alarmist parade for some years now.  You’ll forgive me if I’m less than sympathetic what happens when reality rears it’s head as it has here.

Addendum:(Eric) I note Lorrie Goldstein in the Toronto Sun:

If you’re wondering how the robot-like march of the world’s politicians towards Copenhagen can possibly continue in the face of the scientific scandal dubbed “climategate,” it’s because Big Government, Big Business and Big Green don’t give a s*** about “the science.”

They never have.

What “climategate” suggests is many of the world’s leading climate scientists didn’t either. Apparently they stifled their own doubts about recent global cooling not explained by their computer models, manipulated data, plotted ways to avoid releasing it under freedom of information laws and attacked fellow scientists and scientific journals for publishing even peer-reviewed literature of which they did not approve.

Now they and their media shills — who sneered that all who questioned their phony “consensus” were despicable “deniers,” the moral equivalent of those who deny the Holocaust — are the ones in denial about the enormity of the scandal enveloping them.

The problem, however, is those who hijacked science to predict a looming Armageddon unless we do exactly as they say, have already done their damage.

The moment they convinced politicians the way to avert the End of Days was to put a price on emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the unholy alliance of Big Government, Big Business and Big Green was forged.

Big Government wants more of your taxes. Big Business wants more of your income. Big Green wants you and your children to bow down to its agenda of enforced austerity.

What about saving the planet, you ask? This was never about saving the planet. This is about money and power. Your money. Their power.

Amen and Amen. This is exactly what we at BitsBlog have been saying for years.
