Climategate critics continue to assail British and American scientists who manipulated global warming statistics to sway the global agenda.
“They ‘let the polar bear out of the bag’ on their questionable tactics used in gathering and analyzing the data,” says Matt Harrison, founder of the Prometheus Institute, a California-based public policy think tank.
“While the global warming science was already cloaked in uncertainty, the current controversy only further undermines the authority of the scientific ‘consensus’ that dominates the debate,” Mr. Harrison tells the Beltway.
“We’re about to turn our nation’s economy and world’s economy upside down based upon faulty and questionable science with the cap-and-trade bill now before Congress and measures to be debated in Copenhagen [this] week,” Mr. Harrison continues, fretting that one particular demographic group will bear the weight of the legislation.
“It’s a thinly-disguised tax on young Americans who’ll spend the rest of their lives struggling under oppressive taxes thrust upon them by unscrupulously opportunistic scientists and their unthinking supporters,” he adds.
