“Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.” – Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, Charles Mackay.

Let’s hope (although I am not particularly hopeful in this case) that Climategate can help bring some integrity back to science and remove all political interference, and help to dissipate the now religious mania people feel towards Climate change. All it takes is to be at the top of a mountain or deep in a jungle to realise how inconsequential people are, and how the climate has been changing for eons (studying any data except the manipulated IPCC’s will do the same). You realise how any time this planet or the sun wants to do something, be it a new ice age, super volcano, hurricane, tsunami, solar flare, warm up, cool down, or an infinity of other possibilities, it will and there is not a dam thing anyone can do. Stop voting for delusional/lying politicians who tell you they can control everything on this planet, as well as the sun, moon and stars, and use this illusion (and madness in those who believe it) for political purposes.

We need someone who can tell it straight, (well, it would be a refreshing start!) and say that amongst many other things, yes we do need to reduce oil dependency, and yes pollution is bad and needs to be dealt with, and yes a shift to renewable energy would be a good idea, but sorry there are things we cant control.

    Even before these leaked emails, there were plenty of books talking about the Billions the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) were paid to manipulate data.

    Have you ever wondered why so many people believe recent climate change is almost entirely the result of human activity, even when there’s plenty of evidence to the contrary? It’s because the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says so.

    This compact, readable book pulls apart the flawed science behind the IPCC’s assertion that man-made CO2 is causing global warming. Author Ralph Alexander exposes the IPCC’s deceptive manipulation of climate data, the roadblocks for the CO2 hypothesis favored by climate change alarmists, and the failed predictions of computer climate models.

    Dr. Alexander goes on to examine the consequences of the erroneous, but widespread belief that CO2 emissions need to be drastically curbed for the health of the planet. His analysis shows the folly of carbon trading schemes for regulating CO2, together with common illusions about renewable energy sources. The enormous economic cost of cap-and-trade systems squanders our resources on a problem that doesn’t even exist.

    Another good book here:
    A million years after the birth of our sun, the violent explosion of a nearby supernova nearly ended life on Earth before it began. Over the next four and a half billion years, forces of nature shaped our planet and the life it harbored. Barely surviving the traumatic birth of the Moon, buffeted by supernovae, and bombarded by asteroids, the resilient Earth endured. And despite planet-freezing ice ages, devastating mass extinctions, and ever changing climate, life not only survived, it thrived. Today, we are told all life on Earth is threatened by a new peril–human-caused global warming. The Resilient Earth presents the science behind global warming for a general audience, separating fact from fiction and truth from exaggeration.
