It’s really beyond irksome that the media and other climate hysteria boosters, even in the face of massive incontrovertible evidence of gross malfeasance on the part of climatism’s key players, are ignoring, obfuscating, downplaying and otherwise denying there’s anything interesting to report. For example, last night CTV News happily reported from the Commonwealth Conference in Trinidad that Stephen Harper has been bullied into pissing away $10 billion more of taxpayers’ cash to assist developing nations in combating climate change, but says not a word, absolutely NOTHING, about Climategate. And a search of the CTV web pages turns up only one short puff piece quoting a US climate "scientist’s" views:
Yes, sure "out of context."
[Kevin] Trenberth says the hackers took data out of context.
And at the CBC, as Lawrence Solomon will attest, it’s business as usual:
As The Wall Street Journal Europe put it, "The impression left by the Climategate emails is that the global warming game has been rigged from the start." The impression left by the performance of Anna Maria Tremonti and The Current is that they — wittingly or not — have been helping to rig the game in Canada.Just like the Western dupes that the Soviets once toured through their Potemkin villages so they could report back to their readers about the Soviet Utopia, we have useful idiots, now in the service of climatism.
