An interesting comment posted to our piece below on global warming. It says in part,
“The Union of Concerned Scientists is comprised almost entirely of concerned citizens, not scientists at all. They took my money with no questions asked besides, “Will that be credit card or check?”
So we moseyed on over to their website, since they’ve been such gadflies on this global warming hysteria, quoted almost everywhere. And the name sounds so compelling. Well, from the looks of their website, sure ’nuff our commenter is right — anyone can join. Among the concerned scientists on their board is one Nancy Stephens, listed as an “actress and political activist”. She’s acted in such climatological romps as “Death Car on the Freeway” and “Cheers“. So it’s not really 100,000 scientists, it’s 100,000 (if you believe that number) people, some of whom may or may not be scientists. Big difference, no? Heck, maybe we should start a group called, “Climatologists United to Discredit the Theory of Global Warming.” Who cares if was just a bunch of blog readers? We could testify and issue pronouncements under our presumptuously misleading name. And people would buy it!
In any event, the sad fact is that these folks are all part of the effort to discredit courageous scientists who actually have the temerity to take issue with the theory of global warming. It’s funny, the more you know about this issue, the weaker their arguments become.
Oh, and will that be cash or check….?
