Suppose you had a neighbor who lost his law license for lying to the court. Yeah, I know, woooo, whoooo, one less lawyer. Suppose everyone in the area, including the neighbor’s wife and daughter, knew your neighbor to be a crude, philandering narcissist who has had multiple credible accusation of sexual harassment/assault and even rape filed against him. Last, and perhaps worse all, he is a known cheat at golf. He’s an expert with the hand wedge. His deluxe Calloway golf bag is jammed full of every club and golf gimmick he can buy, but the only one he actually knows how to use is the stubby pencil to whip up a respectable score.
Now suppose that neighbor decides he is going to hold a neighborhood meeting to lecture his neighbors on the need to take climate change seriously. Would anyone show up? Not likely huh.
Well Bill Clinton has taken to lecturing the Republican field on this subject as if were AlGore himself. Clinton said of the Republicans:
"I mean, it makes us - we look like a joke, right? You can't win the nomination of one of the major parties in the country if you admit that the scientists are right? That disqualifies you from doing it? You could really help us there."
Well where to begin? First, the entire Republican field, sadly, doesn’t reject AlGore’s cooked “science.” Romney allows for human caused climate change, as does Huntsman. So Clinton is either a liar or woefully uninformed on that. We’re told that Bill is the smartest guy in any room he happens to walk into, so he must be lying. I think that’s something no one could say Bill Clinton was incapable of.
Clinton uses the term “scientist” as if it were a group of the whole without even one opposing voice. 100’s have signed a paper noting their own skepticism about climate change theory in general and the data collection methods used to support that theory in particular. Perhaps you missed this one Bill:
Ivar Giaever, who shared the 1973 Nobel Prize in Physics for his experiments on electron tunneling in superconductors, resigned on Tuesday from the American Physical Society over the society's official statement on climate change. He objects in particular to the statement's assertion that the evidence in favor of manmade climate change is "incontrovertible."
What other scientist Bill? The ones at East Anglican that have been fudging, lying and just plain making up data about climate change for the last 20 years, those “scientist?” Or our own buffoons (aka climate scientist) at NASA who ran around like Chicken Little while claiming the Earth had warmed a remarkable amount in one year only to discover that they counted the September average twice and omitted October’s reading. Those “scientist?” Or is it the scientist who set up temperature monitoring stations on airport tarmacs and on roofs next to the building’s air conditioner discharge.
But even if the “science” was done scientifically, why would anyone give any more credit to Bill Clinton than your lying, philandering, cheating neighbor in the example above? Maybe, Bill, you should just stick to the liberal meme when someone disagrees with them, "RACIST! HOMOPHOBE! EARTH HATER!!!!" That way you don't have to explain yourself.
