Through sleet and snow, former Vice President Al Gore testified today before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee regarding Global Warming®: a scheme that has the promise of becoming a cash cow for anyone willing to profit off of the fears of our society. The bitter irony of all this is that one of Gore's key climate-cryptologists, James Hansen, was recently rejected by his former NASA supervisor - Dr. John S. Theon:
Retired senior NASA atmospheric scientist Dr. John S. Theon, the former supervisor of James Hansen, NASA’s vocal man-made global warming fears soothsayer, has now publicly declared himself a skeptic and declared that Hansen “embarrassed NASA” with his alarming climate claims and said Hansen was “was never muzzled.” Theon joins the rapidly growing ranks of international scientists abandoning the promotion of anthropogenic global warming fears.
For a more complete summary of this public rebuke, please see Senator James Inhofe's weblog post on the subject. Global warming is yet another illustration of the fact that most of what is termed as "science" today is nothing more than men serving their own agendas under the false guise of empiricism and objective analysis.
Despite the reasoned objections raised by men like Theon, the Global Warming® industry continues to press on. The message of bureaucratic industry is quite clear: detractors and critics can just talk to the bureaucratic hand.
