Just a suggestion




I just read a great interview on Frontline with Dr. S.Fred Singer author of Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1,500 Years. I knew the "other side" of the global warming debate would show up sooner or later. 'Bout time!

Read the interview while you can. Learn a few key parts to bring up when the next liberal fear monger starts spouting about global warming.

Here's a snippet:

(Interviewer)
Do you think, then, this is no longer operating as "normal" science, that there's some kind of pathological mechanism here?

(Dr. Singer)
I think climate science is on its way to becoming pathological, to becoming abnormal in the sense that it is being guided by the money that's being made available to people. I don't blame people for accepting money. And the people who take the money and do research, by and large, are doing very competent research. [But] you'll find them very careful not to speak out against the global warming "threat" -- I'm putting "threat" in quotes, of course. And you'll find also that when they do speak out, as many of them do, they suffer consequences. They lose support. And I can give you examples of that. Or they have other consequences that are equally disagreeable. And if you're a young professor at a university and want to get tenure, or if you want to get a permanent academic position, you must do published research. And to do published research, you must write proposals to get money to do the research. So you're locked into a vicious spiral here. You have to go along with the current wisdom that global warming is a threat. Otherwise, you're not going to get the job that you want.
