Hey, it’s all the same thing!

I think it’s important that the rest of the world know that we’re not all the same and that we don’t all have the sort of arrogance it feels like they’re perceiving from our leaders.
James Denton-actor

I’ve noticed a strange dichotomy between the Democrats political message and present-day global warming science. Although they may be linked, at least in the area of a cap-and-trade bill, neither is focusing on observable records. Instead, they are directing the attention with mud spatter.

The Democrats are digging as deeply into their Republican opponents’ backgrounds as inhumanly possible. They are checking with neighborhood children to see what kind of candy the Republicans gave out on Halloween. They are digging into old high school records. They are checking into everything except the amount Republicans’ give to charity; if they made an issue out of that, they would have to release the amounts of their own charitable donations. If there is no mud found, they make something up. Anything to avoid attention being directed to their congressional voting records.

Meanwhile, the global warming no-proofers and no-debaters are doing all they can to avoid the climate record. Down in New Zealand, their official record keepers have been caught in misrepresenting the temperatures enough to disguise the last 100 years of cooling into an “unofficial” 1.2 degrees of warming. When confronted, they said their record was never meant to be official, and of course, it was NEVER meant to be used to influence any New Zealand climate policy.

All around the world, it is the same thing. As more and more temperature-up data massaging is located, the world-is-ending climate scientists (and I use the word as a pejorative) are blaming their detractors. It’s those DENIERS’ fault. They are stalling all the wonderful things that destroying our energy and manufacturing base could accomplish. The mud keeps splattering, anything to keep attention away from their temperature records.

I doubt that I have much more expertise on predicting the outcome of November’s election than they do at predicting the climate thirty years from now, but I am willing to go out on a limb on this one. I predict the results of the election will be worse than they thought.
