The Mob Boss’s Daughter Wins the Beauty Contest

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has today publicly stated that it is “extremely likely” that the observed warming is the result of mankind.   Or maybe it was peoplekind.  The media is, of course, treating this as a news story.

No contest, really.  I mean, it is not like they were going to come to any other conclusion.  These people either get paid for researching climate change – something that would stop if they admitted it did not exist – or they are politicians using it for money and power grabs.  The media, of course, goes along with it because, well, scary stories sell and scary stories that align with their ideology (man is evil) are always going to be published.  Hyped.

People, being people and not experts, buy into this sort of thing.  Still, I do believe it is changing and that, fifty years from now, history will look back on the global warming furor the same way we look back at phrenology.
