Global Warming Games

Games people play. Or perhaps I should say, "Games others play."

Sometimes, others will go out of their way to fool the rest of us. As Thomas Sieger Derr has recalled, there are those in the global warming fear-mongering crowd who will do just about anything to fool the rest of us. Stanford University's Steven Schneider is one such character. He is on record (in Discover magazine, 1989) as acknowledging:

To capture the public imagination, we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we may have. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest. (Emphasis added.)

Being honest is an option? Being effective is a justification for lying?

Good thing so many of us trust scientists as much--or as little--as we do.

For more on this and further problems with the arguments that suggest/proclaim "global warming" is a real threat to humanity, check out this article, "Strange Science."
