Let’s call them the Shameless 20. There’s depressingly little media or academia outcry over their essentially fascist agenda.
Maybe this reflects the low status to which smug, lockstep liberalism has sunk in the muck of its own ideological catechism.
Beyond the ominous letter from the 20 is this ominous consideration:
President Obama may not need any goading to unkennel the doberman pinschers of the Department of Justice and other bureaucracies and turn them loose on scientists who question political orthodoxy on climate.
Obama has done more than any politician, excepting possibly Al Gore, to politicize a complex issue that’s still being researched and debated in scientific circles. Obama has falsely declared the issue of climate change “settled.”
He has perpetuated the urban myth that “97 percent” of scientists believe humans are the cause of global warming.
These academic ayatollahs aren’t joking. (Ayatollahs never are.)
Dr. Petr Chylek specializes in space and remote sensing sciences at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. He’s a fellow of the American Geophysical Union. And a skeptic. He says:
“It seems that some of the most prominent leaders of the climate research community, like prophets of old Israel, believe they can see the future of humankind and that the only remaining task is to convince or force others to accept and follow….” He adds:
“Let us admit that our understanding of climate is less perfect than we have tried to make the public believe.”
