"For the past 10 years, climate-change skeptics have been calling the hockey stick bogus. Now the scientists who studied the climate record and produced the original hockey-stick graph have done a new study using more data from more sources — and they got the same pattern."
With the same phony ginned up computer modeling that was exposed as fraudulent years ago?
This piece forever puts Mann, et al, and the bogus "hockey stick" fabrication to rest forever, whether the True Believers like it or not.
"The environmental extremists, who have already killed 50 million children through malaria by their now-canceled ban on the use of DDT, the only effective agent against the anopheles mosquito that spreads the infective parasite, are already eagerly killing millions more through their latest scientifically-baseless scare – the 'global warming' panic pandemic. Food riots are occurring throughout the world among the poorest of the poor in many countries: but the desperation, starvation, disease, and death that accompany the sudden famines that the biofuel-driven doubling of world food prices has engendered are scarcely reported by our news media.
In Haiti, they are eating mud pies made of earth, water, a tiny knob of butter, and a pinch of salt; or they sell the mud pies to less fortunate neighbours at 3 US cents each. Has any Western news medium reported this, or the hundreds of other agonizing stories of famine and starvation all round the world? No. Instead, every icicle that falls in Greenland is paraded as an omen of imminent doom: and, as for the crooked pseudo-scientists who invented the hockey stick, supported it, and continue to parade it in the mendacious documents of the
IPCC, no journalist would dare to ask any of them the questions that would expose their self-seeking corruption for what it is.
These evil pseudo-scientists, through the falsity of their statistical manipulations, have already killed far more people through starvation than 'global warming' will ever kill. They should now be indicted and should stand trial alongside Radovan Karadzic for nothing less than high crimes against humanity: for, in their callous disregard for the fatal consequences of their corrupt falsification of science, they are no less guilty of genocide than he."
Cone's post is yet another excellent example of pretentious blogging in support of an ugly and dangerous political, social, and economic agenda without actually taking the time to understand the implications of the disastrous portent .
But does he care?
No, he does not. It simply does not suit his warped sensibilities.
In other words, it's just business as usual for our famed empty suit blogger boy extraordnaire.
