Climategate a single issue,by no means.

The current climategate debacle has been going on for more years that I care to remember. As others have intimated, it is more about control then science.

If you have been around as long as me you will remember the scare in the 70's that we were all going to die from "Global cooling". The British public shrugged that off with the answer, "I'll just put another jumper On".

Then in the nineties it changed to "Global warming" with the IPCC political declaration that we were all doomed to be incinerated. The majority shrugged it off as "Oh goody, that will save on our energy bills."

In the mid 2000's, however, the message subtely changed to "Climate change". This was brought about by the fact that it was observed that in fact, the globe was cooling. How strange?

When you look at the figures it would appear that the whole debacle of this hysteria is controlled by only a few thousands of the population of the planet, numbering in the billions. Yes we have to take accord the research of scientists. But to take it on blind faith is akin to confirming it as a religion.

For more in depth analysis then the green snake in the grass will be better able to explain this new control over our lives.

Climategate to music

I know, I know. I shouldn't be so flippant. On the other hand, why not? It's my blog.
