For years, scientists actually seeking the truth about global warming (not just "proving it") have been ostracized, ignored, and demonized by those who believe it's happening and won't hear anything that even remotely indicates they may have been had by folks like the IPCC and Al Gore.

It's embarrassing, I'll admit, to have to own up that you've been taken for a ride (the Nobel Committee should be the most chagrined -- they should have known better), but when the IPCC has to remove the "hockey stick" graphics from their report because the data was skewed, when over 600 scientists are fighting back, saying the science is biased, and when some areas of the world are not only not warming, but cooling, a building doesn't have to fall on someone to know it's time to change their mind, and admit they might have overreacted. But, boy is it politically incorrect right now; it takes courage to admit when you're wrong.

Sure, the climate is twisting and changing. It has always had homeostatic mechanisms to keep things on an even keel. Overpopulation and technology consume oxygen at a huge rate; storms stir up the oxygen in the oceans and try to keep the atmospheric percentages steady. CO2 actually cools if any of the previous (before the politics mandated otherwise) studies regarding sunspots and cooling are to be believed. If the pre-politico science is right, we could be cutting ourselves off at the knees - kicking off a new ice age - by focusing on lowering the carbon footprint worldwide.

Emotion is driving all of this. Fear mongering at an international level is forcing a belief that centralizing all resources and decision making (a political coup for those who would have a world government under their control) will "fix" what is essentially a problem created by marketing.

Go to google; type in "selling sustainabilitly" or "how to sell sustainability" and find the marketing firms and PR outfits making great profits by teaching companies how to present whatever products they have as "green" so they can get traction in a shaky economy.

I don't expect legislators and elected officials to be perfect. I do expect them to know when they are being played. Klaus, in his book "Blue Planet, Green Shackles" is letting us know the truth; political interests are served by making everyone believe the planet is in danger. Economies are being destroyed by activist environmentalists eager to use global warming to control the behavior (and the freedoms) of others.

The EU is going to be the testbed for whether or not the "new world order" can happen. I can see why they would see Klaus as a real threat. Thought in the middle of all this emotion is bound to look threatening. The emperor doesn't really have new clothes, and Klaus is making us look closer. More power to him.
