The New York Times gives up on the global warming scam:
The New York Times will close its environment desk in the next few weeks and assign its seven reporters and two editors to other departments. The positions of environment editor and deputy environment editor are being eliminated. No decision has been made about the fate of the Green Blog, which is edited from the environment desk.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but we’ve been hearing less and less about “global warming” and “climate change” over the last year. It’s not too hard to figure out why the New York Times suddenly decided that riding the AGW/CC charade in support of its big government ideology wasn’t going to work any longer, as James Delingpole’s victory dance on the corpse of the Met Office’s scientific credibility demonstrates:
Was there ever a government quango quite so useless as the Met Office?
From its infamous ‘barbecue summer’ washout of 2009 to the snowbound winter it failed to predict in 2010 and the recent forecast-defying floods, our £200 million-a-year official weather forecaster has become a national joke.
But of all its recent embarrassments, none come close to matching the Met Office’s latest one.
Without fanfare — apparently in the desperate hope no one would notice — it has finally conceded what other scientists have known for ages: there is no evidence that ‘global warming’ is happening.
When the predictive models fail, as all of the global warming and climate change models have, it is clear that the science behind it, such as it is, is junk. Now, the various bureaucracies that have been formed and funded to address the nonexistent problem will fight furiously to survive and maintain their existence, (which is to say their government funding), but the verdict of history is already clear.
There is no man-made global warming. There is no anthropogenic global climate change. The skeptics were right and the “scientific consensus” was completely wrong. Remember that the next time an interlocutor attempts to appeal to a scientific consensus.
