Red Flags, Leftist Idiots And The Global Warming Scam

Talk of "red flags" abounded after the Islamist terrorist masquerading as an Army psychologist murdered thirteen soldiers and an unborn baby at Fort Hood. Now the "red flag" concept has carried over into the exposure of global warming alarmists masquerading as scientists. In both cases, an alarming rash of danger signs was at best played down and at worst completely ignored.

An NRO reader arrives at the root issue in an e-mail to Jonah Goldberg about the global warming scandal, in which he enumerates the tactics of the Warmongers. It amounts to a breakdown of the leftist idiot playbook:

(1) Consistent use of ad hominem attacks toward those challenging their positions.

(2) Refusal to make data public.

(3) Refusal to engage in discussions of the actual science, on the assumption that it is too complicated for others to understand.

(4) Challenging the credentials of those challenging the consensus position.

(5) Refusal to make public the computer code being used to analyze the data.
Here is an axiom: idiots will lie, filibuster and scream (Hello, Ed Begley Jr.) to advance their ideology because they know it doesn't stand a chance in the honest marketplace of ideas in American politics; it requires the protective shield of a monumental crisis behind which to hide, and global warming certainly fills that bill. Or at least it did until now.

Because now it is all coming apart at its very seams.

The old media have the biggest story of this young century right in front of them and they are studiously ignoring it because they are a central part of the story, working slavishly to propagate the global warming lie.

Meanwhile, the New York Times continues to bleed readership and the LA Times is laying off 40-some employees. For now.

So how's that studious ignorance going for them these days?
