More Climate “Cuccinsanity” from Virginia’s AG


    Sayeth Kookinelli:

    Of the five reviews of “climategate,” which is the scandal last year where emails were leaked showing that scientists were hiding data and/or destroying it, trying to doctor who showed up in peer-reviewed articles, none of the reviews that have come from that have reviewed the science…What we’re addressing in our lawsuit with the EPA will, in part, get to the science because part of Virginia’s allegation is that the EPA has imposed this economy-crushing regulation without using good, objective science. And the people involved in climate science have themselves said this objective outcome, meaning the policies they want, trump getting accurate facts, and that’s a problem for us…

    Of course, this is all a complete, unmitigated bunch of hot air (pun intended). Unless, that is, you believe in a vast, global conspiracy involving thousands of independent scientists working over decades and all coming to the same basic scientific conclusion – that man’s spewing of billions of tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere is causing a “greenhouse effect” and dangerously heating up the planet.

    By the way, Cooch apparently has never heard of (or just completely ignores) “Occam’s Razor,” but instead proceeds to the craziest, most convoluted, most complicated explanation for what is actually a very easy-to-understand phenomenon. But, of course, Cooch is a raging ideologue, and those people are not driven by facts or empirical evidence, so what else would we expect? More disappointing is that the “mainstream media” interviewer lets this all go by without challenging it. Sadly, this is par for the course, as the media continues to completely fail on this issue, and on so many others.
