Infamous in Berlin, but in Very Good Company

By Alan Caruba

Here's a brief news note. The December 12 edition of Berliner Zeitung carried a story about the "deniers of climate change" and among the luminaries named was none other than your humble servant.

Thanks to Google's translation service, I was able to read the article in English. Apparently my "followers" believe that the IPCC and other's claims are "unproven." Well, the reporter got that right, but I have great doubts that I have any "followers." I am not leading any kind of organized campaign, but am merely someone commenting on "global warming", the lies that support it, and the consequences should the world be duped into accepting the "solutions" being offered.

The news report goes on to criticize "more than 30 press releases, all in the same tone" being issued presumably by horrible people who, like me, who are more fond of facts than wild claims that the Earth is in immediate danger. The daily deluge of "Green" propaganda received no comparable notice.

Lord Christopher Monckton, a British Member of Parliament and outspoken critic of "global warming", is cited in the article and I am frankly pleased to be named in such distinguished company.

On December 13, more than 100 prominent scientists signed a letter to the United Nations that said, in essence, attempting to control the Earth's climate was, in their words, "ultimately futile."

"It is not possible to stop climate change, a natural phenomenon that has affected humanity through the ages."

It's flattering, I suppose, that some reporter in Germany considers me to be the leader of the pack, but the truth is I am a very minor player, albeit an obviously well-read and vocal one.

I have been reading your blog for several months and I like it very much. My husband Charming Just Charming and I agree with you. Global warming is a socialist movement for one world government. They will achieve this goal in 30 to 40 years and our wonderful Republic will be gone. There will be a few holdouts like us, the rednecks of America. We used to go to Texas or Alaska. But since world population is so great and there is no more land to be had, we need a new world to go to. Shades of science fiction!

Thank you. There's nothing a writer wants to hear more than that his work is liked.

I doubt the global warming liars are going to win this struggle. I think that good science drives out bad science and we are beginning to see leading climatologists, meteorologists and others coalesce to refute the lies.
