Time for a witch-hunt...

The extent of the fraudulent politicized "science" of AGW is stupefying. This is clearly the biggest science fraud in history. (Unless perhaps you call Lysenkoism "science.")

And it is thrilling how fast the rotting log has been rolled over, and the number of horrid bugs that are scurrying for cover. Awesome! It reminds me of one of my first blog-posts right after 9/11, when I compared that time to... A rotting log being rolled over. And Oh the bugs we found! And "realists" back then were tut-tutting that there was a danger of the Middle East being "de-stabilized." And people like me were saying, "YES! That's what we want! Break some glass!"

The threads of deceit and mendacity run everywhere. The science establishment, the journals, the massive propaganda-and-bullying apparatus of education, politicians, bureaucrats, "journalists." And it is a pity that most of them will escape by a quick change of costume, and still infect the world with the spirit of the Father of Lies.

We need a new Tail-Gunner Joe, a new Nixon, to pursue the guilty with the ferocity of pigs rooting for truffles, hounding the guilty out of public life, and putting a few thousand behind bars. It won't happen of course. All will be tidied over.

James Delingpole has the right spirit. Climategate: time for the tumbrils :

...I first met Professor Stott a couple of years ago. He's emeritus professor of biogeography at the University of London, and I tracked him down because in those days he was pretty much the ONLY senior scientific academic anywhere in Britain brave enough publicly to dispute the AGW 'consensus."

We had lunch. "There are many more scientists who think the way I do," he told me. "But they don't want to stick their heads above the parapet. They don't want to lose their jobs." We talked a bit about the loneliness of our position, how impossible it was to place dissenting articles anywhere in the media, how people who thought like us were treated like pariahs.

Now suddenly it has all changed utterly. And you know what? I'm in no mood for being magnanimous in victory. I want the lying, cheating, fraudulent scientists prosecuted and fined or imprisoned. I want warmist politicians like Brown and disgusting Milibands booted out and I want Conservative fellow-travellers who are still pushing this green con trick – that'll be you, David Cameron, you Greg Clark, you Tim Yeo, you John Gummer, to name but four – to be punished at the polls for their culpable idiocy.

For years I've been made to feel a pariah for my views on AGW. Chris Booker has had the same experience, as has Richard North, Benny Peiser, Lord Lawson, Philip Stott and those few others of us who recognised early on that the AGW thing stank. Now it's payback time and I take small satisfaction from seeing so many rats deserting their sinking ship. I don't want them on my side. I want to see them in hell, reliving scenes from Hieronymus Bosch.

Yeah, maybe it isn't the Christian way. But screw 'em. It's not as though they haven't all been screwing us for long enough....

And as a Christian I would wish to note that the AGW scam is un-Christian, despite all the liberal Christian sob-sisters who have signed on. Why? Because the desired end-result of the scamsters would result in massive economic contraction, the most grievous results of which would fall upon the world's poor. The warmists are all prosperous people who would be only mildly inconvenienced by economic shrinkage (And of course many of them could look forward to being in the Nomenklatura of the new "Global Governance" order) while, un-seen by them, millions of Third World people would die, or suffer horribly.
