The Audacity of “Hopenhagen”

From National Post, Dec. 6:

Even without the mounting scandal of Climategate, the huge Copenhagen climate meeting that begins next week would represent a festival of political hypocrisy, historical amnesia, economic lunacy and cosmic irony.

Let’s start with the irony. Barack Obama will be popping in on the way to pick up his Nobel Peace Prize. Two years ago, that prize was won by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the research and policy pinnacle for man-made global warming, and by Al Gore, climate alarmism’s most successful huckster. They won the accolade for promoting an hysterical perspective that has set the nations of the world at each other’s throats.

And while you’re on the National Post site, you might want to take a look at articles by Ross McKittrick which it seems that Prime Minister Harper’s advisors sadly appear to have missed.

Harper’s aides also say they are not being distracted by, nor do they want to argue about, the scandal involving some climate-change scientists who, in private e-mail messages that have surfaced over the past few weeks, suggested data supporting the conclusion that man-made pollution is causing climate change were altered or deleted.

“One or two scientists fudging data doesn’t mean the problem doesn’t exist. It’s real,” said one of Harper’s closest advisers.
