Odd, isn’t it? Most of our media have now swallowed the man-made global warming cult so completely that the coldest December in recent memory, here and abroad, has generally been covered with hardly any attempt to explain how this fits in with the idea that the polar ice-caps are about to melt away and drown us all.
I know perfectly well that one cold winter doesn’t necessarily mean that the planet isn’t getting warmer, but this month’s hard frosts are not by any means the only indicator that the whole theory may be wrong. That is the reason for the fuss about the leaked emails, suggesting that scientists may not have been scrupulous about the truth.
Supporters of the panic ask why so many people remain convinced of the warmist theory. Haven’t they heard of embarrassment? If you have ordered everyone into the lifeboats because the ship is sinking, and the ship fails to sink, it is very hard to admit you were wrong – especially if you’ve drifted too far away to get back aboard.
