An inside story about the campaign to impeach CO2

A remarkable piece of historical and institutional analysis of climate science over the last 70 or 80 years by Ricard Lindzen, the doyen of genuine climate science. I appreciate that this is far too long for busy Cats to read but everyone needs to know that it exists.

When an issue becomes a vital part of a political agenda, as is the case with climate, then the politically desired position becomes a goal rather than a consequence of scientific research. This paper will deal with the origin of the cultural changes and with specific examples of the operation and interaction of these factors. In particular we will show how the political bodies act to control scientific institutions, how scientists adjust both data and even theory to accommodate politically correct positions, and how opposition to these positions is disposed of.

    A.k.a. petitio principii, begging the question.

    Evidently they don’t teach logic in our education system anymore.

    CAGW is the dumbest hoax ever tried on the human race. Our descendants will be embarrassed.

    and how opposition to these positions is disposed of.

    Straight from the pages of 1984.

    Our government is actively working against us!

    I’ve just come across a ‘report’ that actually names some of the people involved here in Australia. They pop up on the ABC (and occasionally SKY) to continue the renewables advocacy.

    When you dig into it a bit you find that between The Australia Institute, ANU, a couple of economists and some journalists, they all seem to know each other and use each other as ‘expert opinions’ or ‘independent’ analysis. Then you find a foreign organisation like seems to be backing them. Is it possible that groups are funding this community of renewable advocates?

    Is there a formal arrangement between these players or is it just fortuitous?
