    Dirty oil? Or dirty tricks?

    In the late 70's, it was a hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica....we were all doomed to die of skin cancer from the increased intensity of the sun.

    A few years later, it was the Greenhouse effect ---- increased CO2 was trapping the sun's heat inside the atmosphere, and the temperature of the Earth would slowly, steadily increase until we all cooked.

    But this "Global Warming" idea didn't get borne out by real-world data....so the scientists in charge of telling us how the world works got very impatient (.....not a good quality in paleontologists or climate scientists, BTW....) and changed the name of their cause to "Climate Change"....without ever 'un-explaining' why using any consistent evidence to do a 180 degree "re-vectored" re-interpretation of their 'evidence'. Quite a deft bit of tap dancing, for sure. 'Warming' was out, 'Change' was in. Next, they focused in on "volatility" as the buzz word...not cold or warm, but the size of the swings in between. The variability of weather.

    So there you have it...in a mere 35 years ,we've made up an entire industry of BS without any basic foundation, no base line data, no firm, single position that has held up to scrutiny for more than a few years until it needed changing. What arrogant, dangerous, self-righteous mass holes.
