The religiosity of the global warming political movement has been known for sometime by skeptics such as myself. It has only been the last few years, when all the dire predictions made by the purveyors of the global warming hoax have not materialized, that the general population has become weary of the proselytizing by people like Al Gore. Recently, at a conference where the former Vice President and climate change scam artist spoke, he claimed that "There should be a political price paid by anyone who denies man-made climate change."
The former Vice President and current snake oil salesman, Mr. Gore, exemplifies the unwillingness of those of the Left to allow free speech when it conflicts with their agenda. Especially when that free speech is made substantive with facts and data. The truth of the matter is that none of the cataclysmic outcomes from global warming made by Al Gore and his band of pseudo-scientists and politicians for the last 30 years, have even come close to being brought to fruition. In fact, their own data shows that there has been no warming in the last 15 years. But the fact that there is no proof, they say, is proof of man-made climate change. Their "global warming" scam has so badly blown up in their face that they have had to re-brand it to "climate change."
In addition to no warming of the planet taking place the last 15 years, and none of the dire predictions rearing their ugly heads, there was the embarrassment of the Hadley Climate Research Institute at the University of East Anglia. This "research" center is one of the main feeder organizations for climate change "science" that is distributed to climate change cults throughout the world. A few years ago it was discovered that Hadley "scientists" shared emails that clearly showed a collusion to ignore any data that might disprove their previous conclusions about the horrors of man-made global warming. Additionally it was discovered that the computer models used to give evidence to the global warming argument were rigged. The data was hard-coded into the programming for the models so that no other result would be possible.
Poor old Al Gore, he is screaming just as hysterically, but fewer and fewer people are listening. The cold, hard hand of reality has gently revealed to most Americans the complete clown-like persona of the former VP and the absolute vacuous nature of his cause. I expect in the coming years, as more and more people become aware of the biggest con ever to be perpetrated in the history of cons, Mr. Gore and his dwindling minions will be relegated to the very margins of society. We may even hear, at some time in the future, about a group of wild-eyed crazies, lead by a former Vice President of the United States, waiting in an open field for the mother ship to rescue them from a planet with a fever.
