TRILLIONS, BABY TRILLIONS!
I've long thought that the world needs more op-ed articles that repeatedly italicize the word trillions:
British scientists at the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit now claim that the key data underpinning the man-made-warming theory was . . . thrown out: Original climate data stored on magnetic tape and paper were dumped, supposedly when the CRU moved to new quarters.I'm so old, I just barely remember a time when computers used magnetic tape. Turns out, of course, that the raw data (the site-corrected data are of course all freely available) were thrown out back in the mid 80s. Wasn't that back when we were supposedly still mislead by the great Global Cooling Scam™?
Their story strains credulity: Who'd toss out data critical to the idea that the earth is rapidly warming as a result of human activity -- especially since their prescription is to spend trillions of dollars to avert disaster? [...]Look who's alarmist now.
Above all else, though: Before the world spends trillions on fighting warming, shouldn't scientists first at least produce reliable evidence that the "enemy" exists?
