"a triumph for science..."

A snippet from an interesting piece on Hans Joachim "John" Schellnhuber, Malcolm Gladwell, tipping points and Climategate. Schellnhuber is a sort of warmist "entrepreneur" and glad-hander, now an advisor to Merkel. This is a glimpse of the creepy ugliness that lurks beneath the surface of the "green" world...

...Amongst the subsystems discussed are the Arctic sea ice, which could take 10 years to disappear, the collapse of the Gulf Stream (10 years), and the greening of the Sahara Desert (10 years). None look likely today, with global temperatures fairly static (or falling slightly – depending on how you fit the curve) for 15 years.

It was a deeply pessimistic point of view. But Schellnhuber welcomed the climate apocalypse, because he saw human beings as the planet's enemy – and the planet must come before human life.

"In a very cynical way, it's a triumph for science because at last we have stabilised something – namely the estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below 1 billion people," Schellnhuber told a conference in March 2009. Such a neo-Malthusian vision could only be turned into reality with unprecedented coercion and repression....

Just keep in mind, when you are asked to donate to Greenpeace or WWF or other organs of genocidal nihilism.
