Is this the Whimper ?

The great T.S. Eliot wrote, plaintively: "This is the way the World ends---not with a bang, but a whimper..."

An so it is with anthropogenic global warming. The mea culpas from the dirty little boys squirming in the hayloft are letting their side down.

Most brutal of all the stories was in the UK Daily Mail on Sunday, Feburary 14
I did not see where the AssPress "copied" it.

The Mail had content from BBC and other interviews with Dr. Phil Jones---the point man in "Climategate" at East Anglia University, where he canniballized himself by refusing several parliamentary and government demands unter the Freedom of Information Act.

As a result of his ducking his responsibilities, one of his colleagues "outed" him and his co-conspirators by sending thousands of their emails to media interests.

These emails, you remember, laid bare the fudging,
bending and making-up of data upon which the Algoreans and other "warmists" based their famous "hockey stick" graph indicating imminent "crisping" of humanity due to fossil fuel CO2 that made a Greenhouse of the Earth's atmosphere.

This was supposed to support a huge "cap and trade" movement under which the United States would pay something like "reparations" to the rest of the world for using so much gasoline and deisel fuel.

Now, Dr. Jones admits that "there has been no increase in global warming temperatutes since 1995 !"

Dr. Jones also admits now (and he would NOT heretofore) that Earth's temperatures were muich hotter in medevial decades than since--with no fossil fuels use or possible man made warming of the planet.

Yes, I admit to a preoccupation with this subject---maybe an obsession.

But, we are surrounded by shuck-and-jive Flim Flam men with walnut shells and peas and playing cards for three-card-Monte and a plethora of sleight of hand and sleight of mouth tricks. So, cap-snd-trade is what ? Extortion on a galactic scale.

Long as I'm around, you and I will share an occasional "Uh-Oh" like this, at the expense of the withering would-be wizards.
