Those hysterical about Global Warming have been trying to figure out how to compromise those of us who have been laughing hysterically about their approach for years. They never really come to grips with the basic problem (a failing paradigm), because they assume that they understand the science far better than we do. 'Absolute Arrogance' leading to 'Absolute Knowledge' and 'Absolute Certainty" has been the downfall of many.
Here a professor of philosophy in New York discusses
"The Dangers of Certainty: A Lesson From Auschwitz"http://opinionator.blogs.
Now we have today another Op-Ed from the New York Times that discusses the failure of their side to effectively promote Global Warming:
"Global Warming Scare Tactics"http://www.nytimes.com/2014/
This article points out how the upcoming series on the Discovery Channel "Years of Living Dangerously," is massive over-hype from Hollywood that hurts their cause.
And we have this peer-reviewed study from the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society where Stenhouse, Maibach, at al discovered that their supporters were primarily motivated by a perceived consensus and by political ideology:
This paper even confirms that Alarmists do not have the super majority "consensus" among scientists that they perpetually claim. In fact, the scientists they surveyed were about evenly divided on this subject.
In other words, the institutions that think about this subject in a sophisticated way, yet still support the hysteria, clearly see some of the fundamental problems. But because they lack enough scientific literacy to think about the science for themselves or are too financially involved to dispute it continue to believe the nonsense.
It is bizarre to see the relatively sophisticated believers unwilling or unable to carry Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming to its logical conclusion: fraud.
