There have been many recent setbacks suffered by the “climate change” alarmists:
... Climategate. ... the [failure of] the Copenhagen conference... followed quickly by Glaciergate, Amazongate, Kiwigate and serious challenges to the credibility of Rajendra K. Pachauri, [IPCC] chairman....... some say that the climate scare is over:
... Some commentators tell us that this is the beginning of the end of the climate scare. More likely, it is just the end of the beginning.It would be foolhardy to relax:
... While it is appropriate for realists to revel in their late-period success, it is vastly premature to celebrate.The alarmists are solidly entrenched, well funded and their propaganda machine runs full-time:
... Through the tireless work of hundreds of thousands of mostly unpaid activists, aided by unquestioning journalists, grant-seeking scientists, pandering politicians, opportunistic or naive industries and well-meaning but misinformed citizens, climate campaigners made "stopping global warming" a cause celebre....
... As a result, massive donations from left-wing foundations poured in to groups focused on promoting alarm.
... climate alarmism is de rigueur "science" in virtually all public schools, colleges and universities.
Most mainstream media, corporations, even churches and essentially all environmental organizations promote the now politically correct view of human-caused climate change.[Via]
There simply is too much money and political capital, and too many reputations are at stake for alarmists to back down. ...
