Science Czar Ignores Climategate

Our Science Czar (whatever the hell that means) was implicated in some of the CRU emails. Along with other Democrats, specifically senators, he would like the whole thing to go away and is thus ignoring it.

To do so he came out and said that the disputed emails cover only a fraction of accepted climate science, completely missing the point that the emails point to a endemic problem of lies and manipulation. If we had more emails (go Anonymous go) then we would, I am quite sure, have more lies and fraud.

Interestingly, here are some other opinions held or previously held (as in published in a book) by Obama's top science adviser:

• Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not;
• The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation's drinking water or in food;
• Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise;
• People who "contribute to social deterioration" (i.e. undesirables) "can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility" -- in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized.
• A transnational "Planetary Regime" should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans' lives -- using an armed international police force.

Now these generally come from a book published in the late 70's. When confronted he quite rightly said that dredging up opinions from 25years ago is not all that productive. Fair enough, but it still shows a strong willingness to accept the most radical of opinions (amusingly enough, at the time the big fear was global cooling). When he went on to talk about population control he said (this year):
"The motivation for looking at the downside possibilities, the possibilities that can go wrong if things continue in a bad direction, is to motivate people to change direction"

He also tells us that
global warming could cause the deaths of 1 billion people by 2020. And that sea levels could rise by 13 feet by the end of this century when your run-of-the-mill alarmist warn of only 13 inches.

Honestly, where the hell does Obama find these guys? And why are they in power? The issue is not simply that we have a Professor in Chief who has no experience and a tenuous grip on reality, his whole team is the same way.
