Mad mullahs believe bad science is gospel

GLOBAL warming believer Kevin Rudd has adopted the strategies of radical ayatollahs to push his agenda for a huge new tax on Australians and a global wealth redistribution scheme.

Like the mad mullahs of the Middle East, Prime Minister Rudd and his leading disciple, Climate Change Minister Penny Wong, are attempting to scare the Australian public into their new belief system with dire threats of catastrophic repercussions should they fail to fall into line.

On Tuesday, both Rudd and Wong cast their arguments in religious terms while talking of the need to believe in anthropogenic global warming. Similar warmist rhetoric spouted at the failed Copenhagen conference in December failed to woo the globe’s leaders.
Rudd, in particular, still claims the Great Barrier Reef is all but dead though research shows the reef is not showing any signs of imminent mortality through global warming or any other threat.

The ALP’s stolid defence of the all-but-forgotten Copenhagen conference and the UN’s chief climate change body, the IPCC, is becoming the laughing stock of the developed world. While legitimate doubts over the IPCC grow elsewhere, the troubled organisation is still highly regarded in Ruddville.
Apart from the vested interests of the international banking fraternity the carbon trading system is regarded as a con, as shown by the collapsing price of carbon worldwide.
That the ALP would align itself with climate shonks in its efforts to maintain its increasingly threadbare arguments is degrading to a political party which once purported to represent the average working families of Australia.
Even the Guardian newspaper, the stalwart defender of British Labour values, has begun to move away from the principal architects of the IPCC’s “scientific” claims for AGW, noting in a series of articles that a key study by the University of East Anglia’s Professor Phil Jones was based on suspect figures purportedly from weather stations in China that were not only seriously flawed but cannot now be located.
Neither can the thousands of emails and documents related to them.
The Guardian says its investigation calls into question Jones’ integrity, after revealing suggestions that he helped cover up flaws in Chinese temperature data underpinning his research.
The Chinese data, said the Guardian, cannot be verified because documents no longer exist and what data is available suggests the findings are flawed.
Wong’s defence of Labor’s emissions trading system relies almost entirely on accounts of recent global warming - though nowhere has she mentioned that Europe and North America have just endured a record-breaking deep freeze.
Just as Rudd does, Wong has tried to confuse the public by citing weather events as if they were evidence of climate change to distract attention from the plethora of scientific reports which find there have been no extreme weather events attributable to climate change, human-induced or naturally occurring, in the past century.
The Guardian still wants to believe in AGW and says the “inadequacies” of the IPCC do not undermine the case, “but they do call into question the probity of some climate change science”.
The claim by Rudd and Wong that the “science is settled” is shot down by the newspaper’s investigation.
For over a year they have been hiding behind scientists who we now know have refused to present the data upon which they based their most extravagant claims of human-induced global warming, data which in some cases has either been manipulated or didn’t exist.
In the UK, a court ruled on Tuesday that climate change beliefs should be afforded the same legal protections as religious freedoms. Mr Justice Michael Burton decided that: “A belief in man-made climate change, and the alleged resulting moral imperatives, is capable if genuinely held, of being a philosophical belief for the purpose of the 2003 Religion and Belief Regulations.”
Under those regulations it is unlawful to discriminate against a person on the grounds of religious or philosophical beliefs. Rudd and Wong are relying on that hokey old time religious fervor for their apocalyptic pronouncements and they are urging their followers to drink the same Kool-Aid and believe as fervently as they do - despite the growing avalanche of evidence - as they struggle to keep their flawed belief system together long enough for Labor to inflict its huge new tax on Australians.
With the science behind the IPCC’s reports falling away, the ALP’s religious basis for its new tax system must be thoroughly investigated before it is locked in place.
Simply calling those who have dared question the new religion “deniers” is intellectually on a par with the foam-flecked ayatollahs who routinely berate the “unbelievers” and call for fatwahs on apostates.
It is a dismal day for science and the nation when the Prime Minister has to resort to medieval oratorical tricks and religious scare-mongering instead of rational debate and fact-based reasoning to carry a political argument.
