Updated: 01/21/2009 - One of the most disturbing aspects of the global warming scam is the number of prominent people and entire segments of society bullied into silence. Entire segments of society have either remained silent or taken evasive action. Few had the courage to even ask for a full and open debate. Now everything is changing as the claims of warming are offset by the realities of cooling. Cold weather is doing more to raise questions about the scam of global warming than all the appeals to scientific reason. An increasing number of scientists are speaking out for a variety of reasons. The most likely reason is because the public is showing signs of disbelief in the entire global warming claims. Consensus was a major argument throughout the debate even though it’s a meaningless argument in science. Consensus is not a scientific fact. It is important in politics, which underscores the political nature of the debate. U.S Government Atmospheric Scientist Stanley B. Goldenberg of the Hurricane Research Division of NOAA recently said, “It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic (human caused) global warming.” It was a child who said the Emperor had no clothes because the adults were afraid to speak up. Now scientists of all political persuasions are speaking out. The bullying is over and the bullies are in a panic.
