Chris Muir’s assessment of the Obama administration may be a little harsh–I don’t think they actually planned for things to go this badly–but it’s fun anyway; click to enlarge:
And Michael Ramirez comments on the global warming scandal:
There’s no question that it’s a fraud, but whether the “scientists” who have been promoting the global warming hoax have committed felonies is not yet clear. They have taken countless millions of dollars in government money and used it to produce fraudulent results, which may very well violate criminal statues both here and in the U.K. And the “scientists’” destruction of data that was subject to valid Freedom of Information Act requests may have been criminal under British law; that’s a subject on which I am not an expert.
I’d love to see the hoaxers behind bars, but it isn’t likely to happen, if only because the government officials who would have to bring charges are their allies. Criminal liability aside, the fact is that these “scientists” nearly pulled off the greatest fraud in world history. Compared to them, hoaxers like Enron and Bernie Madoff were pikers. The global warming alarmists sought to impose trillions of dollars in losses on the world economy, while living high off the hog on taxpayer money. If Bernie Madoff gets life, what would be the appropriate sentence for Michael Mann, Phil Jones, Keith Briffa, and the others?
