Climate Science Day on Capitol Hill starts on February 26, 2013.
Fourteen organizations and professional societies are currently planning the day that will provide members of Congress with what they call "the best possible access to scientific information on climate science" when making policy decisions.
In the euphemisms loved by the administration and its minions, what “best possible access to scientific information on climate science” really means is that Congress will be bombarded with relentless propaganda urging it to do something to rein in the catastrophic threats from the climate, better known among real scientists as the government-sponsored global warming hoax.
It didn’t take long after President Obama’s inauguration declaration of war against global warming for the science establishment, which depends on billions of funding for climate research, to launch an assault on Congress that has up to now refused to further cripple our stagnant economy.
We can safely assume that John Holdren, Presidential Science Advisor and past president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, is driving the efforts behind Climate Science Day on Capitol Hill. With a direct line to Obama and support from the science mandarins feeding at the public trough, Holdren holds the keys to the climate science narrative about to be delivered to congressional members.
That narrative will have the character of an alarmist extraordinaire. Holdren harbors doomist positions on natural resources depletion, air pollution, global warming, power plants, and promotes public policy activism in science. You can bet that members of the large and growing number of skeptical scientists will not be invited.
Holdren’s intentions are clear: “A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States.” And, by golly, the fourteen societies beholden to Holdren will deliver the biased and manipulated story that poses as science, while unmanipulated evidence goes unnoticed. Truth in reporting holds no consequence for Holdren.
Science is never settled, certainly not the earth’s climate about which we know so little. But, Congress will not hear that from the gaggle convened to harangue its members. Even the American Meteorological Society intends to go beyond weather science and contribute to the federal policy process. Since when did science lose its unbiased approach to the physical world and become an agent in political propaganda?
It seems that our science establishment has become yet another special interest petitioning to the government for special favors at great expense to the rest of us. Congressmen, let the harangue of hoax begin.
