In a startling new book, Christopher Booker reveals how a handful of scientists, who have pushed flawed theories on global warming for decades, now threaten to take us back to the Dark Ages.

Good article in many respects...

I would not agree with calling it delusion. Coercion would be much more accurate.

Shock tactics and fear-mongering so that certain otherwise dead policies can be resurrected and inflicted on people. Dreamed up by think tanks registered as charities and no doubt laundering money, funding campaigns of misinformation in order to enact their hidden agendas.

What is it about Britain that has produced this rush to self destruction? The global warming scam is just one sign of the apparent madness of our political 'elite'. The other is of course the EU and all that has entailed not least being the immigration maddness that has led directly to the rise of the BNP. The banking crisis can be laid directly at the feet of the politicians, yet they seem to get off scott free.

The same maddness has begun to affect the land of the free and the home of the brave. I thought they were a bit more sceptical about big government and although George Bush was not a great president, at least there was action rather than the indecision from the present incumbent. He makes a lame duck look dynamic.

We seem hell bent on cultural, financial and moral suicide.

The Climate Change Bill laid down that, by 2050, the British people must cut their emissions of carbon dioxide by well over 80 per cent. Short of some unimaginable technological revolution, such a target could not possibly be achieved without shutting down almost the whole of our industrialised economy, changing our way of life out of recognition.

Surely the idea isn't to send us back to the dark ages or even to press forward with technological revolutions in energy production, efficiency and transmission but to produce a society that accepts massive punitive taxation based on an arbitrary measure built on inaccurate science that will be spent on carbon offsets. The redistribution of wealth the politicians pushing for this all say they desire and we deserve for having had the temerity to live in a modern nation will occur, though into carbon corporation pockets rather than poorer nations.

I must add though, even that is a bit too much like politicians having some intelligence. What I can better imagine is that they simply couldn't say no for political reasons and because they don't have the brains to craft an argument against it, bought into the rhetoric and never intend for us to meet any targets of any kind, though they will continue to claim we're doing our bit. The long target date is suspiciously handy in that the vast majority of MPs will either be dead or in the Lords and I'm not sure we'd notice the difference. Think of it like the Afghanistan campaign. We're going to be there until we've 'won' and we are spending a lot of time and money trying to redefine what 'winning' looks like so we can leave. They will do the same with this - certain things will get excluded or included in the measurements to suit the political needs to fiddle the figures in the right direction.

Regretably Booker has made some serious errors on two of his latest articles.The first was his hero worshipping article on Marta Andreasen where he airbrushed out of the picture that prior to being suspended and then sacked by the EU she had also been suspended from a previous job at the OECD.As the point of his complaint was that she was picked on by the EU for threatening to expose accounting problems-so she says-the fact that she had been got rid of at another internatiuonal organization with nothing to do with the EU was relevant and hushed up by Booker.

Now he carelessly comparesthe Michael Brown case at the Lib Dems with UKIP's taking money from impermissible donors. Again he has brushed a lot of the facts out of the story.

All this is worrying as it undermines his credentials-what has he left out of the global warming story?

Well, blow me, Marta Andreasen must be a wrong 'un then. She "had been suspended from a previous job at the OECD." Wow!

Hang on.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marta_Andreasen:

Quote:
She joined the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in 1998, where she reported serious problems with its accounting system, raised her concerns with the management and suggested ways of reforms. After initial resistance, Arthur Andersen were assigned for an outside analysis. In August 2000, their report described the OECD's internal accounting systems as outdated and inadequate. Mrs Andreasen, however, was suspended from her job for 15 months.

Accountancy Age stated in October 2003 that Mrs Andreasen's spell at the OECD ended with "her bid to take the organisation to the European Court of Justice claiming her human rights had been violated as she had not been given a 'fair trial' following allegations of racism, and that she raised 'undue doubts' and unsupported 'alarmist allegations' in relation to OECD accounts."

The OECD never confirmed allegations of racism were part of the cause for her suspension. Andreasen had already dismissed those in Accountancy in October 2000 ("Andreasen claims allegations against her emerged only after she had raised concerns about the accounts").

You try to imply that the reason for her suspension was her wrongdoing. Given her history, it seems she was the victim of corruption at the OECD too.

You don't supply any evidence and you twist things to make it seem that it is a fact that her suspension should be seen as a mark against her!

No, it's you who are the wrong 'un.

As we see, it does nothing of the sort. You'd be well advised to look to your own credentials. What a creepy distorting little shit you are.

Is your name Peter Mandelson?

Guest uses the typical Leftist ploy of pulling apart the inconsequential to distract from the fundamental. One wonders what is in the Global Warming Scam for Guest?

lol

He's too busy swooning by Nat Rothschilde and pulling serious faces in the mirror to read this blog. I dare say some of his minions do though... wonder if any Common Purpose graduates would like to shed some light on what it is that their organisation has actually been doing for the past decade...

If this lady (Andreasen) was trying to keep these institutions to account, she was doing her job. Doing it too well for her own career's good it seems.

This is, incidentally a classic example of a process that happens at all levels of government and even within some companies. When challenged, the white illiberal elite plays the "race card" to destroy their rivals' reputations. They then can replace them with less competent, more corrupt people, like them - perhaps their own siblings, or more conformist female workers who'll take orders efficiently without rocking the boat (Andreasen being a counter-example of this rule - she may have slipped under the radar because she was a woman).

Seems India and China ain't buying this rubbish and so Copenhagen will be a dud.

It is easier to stay independent of the climate paranoia if one does not believe the planet is in peril. Xiao Ziniu, director general of the Beijing Climate Centre, told the British Guardian newspaper recently that "There is no agreed conclusion about how much change is dangerous....Whether the climate turns warmer or cooler, there are both positive and negative effects....In Chinese history, there have been many periods warmer than today." He disputed the disaster warnings of the UNIPCC, saying, "The accuracy of the prediction is very low because the climate is affected by many mechanisms we do not fully understand."

Hey folks! Get a look at these clips. :lol:

Christopher Booker gets a nice plug on his latest book from Glenn Beck on FOX News.

Glenn Beck & Christopher Booker -- The Global Warming Hoax, FOX News:
Part 1 - 4:45 mins
Part 2 - 2:03 mins

It's also on Glenn Beck's site which no doubt is updated daily. At the moment the home page contains the relevant clip. Scroll down about half way. It's segment 6 of 6. Tomorrow you may have to look elsewhere on the site for it. Currently its label is
