Anyone who has even casually encountered the global warming industry knows that this crowd's first response to any challenge, of any sort, from any source, is to go ad hominem. Ad hom is a way to change the subject by people for whom the facts are not helpful. As we also see in the case of EPA getting caught suppressing the sole substantive report submitted as part of its "internal deliberation" over whether to seize the energy sector of the economy, it also reveals staggering ignorance about the issue on a par with President Obama's recent claim
that carbon dioxide, eh, "contaminate[s] the water we drink and pollute[s] the air we breathe." He said, opening a Perrier and exhaling a sigh...
They know what they need to know, and that is that it has been decided that this is the vehicle for long-desired "social change", and whatever means that are necessary will be employed. Facts and logic are, to these people, for losers.
We see it again today, in a Washington Times story about the suppressed report. There we read that a spokeswoman for EPA administrator Lisa P. Jackson, who made the determination that CO2 threatens the world, "noted that the memo's author, Alan Carlin, is an economist, not a climate scientist". Funny how people tasked with certain jobs become unqualified only when they are inconvenient.
