The recent theft of email from East Anglia climate research “scientists” was a crime. The perpetrators should be caught and appropriately punished for wrong-doing.
The content of those messages, however, has cast serious doubt about the integrity of their research and their theories about global warming. Yes, we said it: Everything they have put forward to date is still just a theory.
Al Gore, Supreme Leader of the Church of Climate Change, and his unquestioning disciples continue to drone on about “consensus” in the scientific community regarding their theories of human-caused temperature change. Gore and his sycophants say there is “consensus” around the idea that human beings are making the earth warmer, and that we can do something to stop that from happening.
We decided to look up the dictionary definition of “consensus,” and discovered this is just one more English word some liberals would like to re-shape to fit their own view. Not so fast. Here’s what Webster’s says:
1 a : general agreement : unanimity b : the judgment arrived at by most of those concerned
2 : group solidarity in sentiment and belief
Argue all you want to about the theory. But call it a theory until it’s been proven. And don’t try to re-write the dictionary by using a word that means unanimity to describe your beliefs and ours.
Do you think such a “consensus” exists? Perhaps more importantly, what do you think about people trying to twist the meaning of plain English words?
