The comments by Archbishop Celestino Migliore, the Holy See’s observer at the United Nations on global climate change got a lot of attention in the press and blogosphere.
The archbishop threw the Vatican’s weight behind the climate change “consensus”, including that “the scientific evidence for global warming and for humanity’s role in the increase of greenhouse gasses becomes ever more unimpeachable.”
The only problem is that “evidence” is a lie because it is based on the lies in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s false reports. As I blogged in March, Orson Scott Card debunked this report as myth at length.
Here’s a story you haven’t heard, and you should have.
An intelligence source, working for [the IPCC]. He’s not a spy, he’s an analyst. He uses computers to crunch numbers and at the end of his work, out pops the truth that was hiding in the original data. Let’s call him “Mann.”
The trouble with Mann is, he has an ideology. He knows what he wants his results to be. And the original numbers aren’t giving him that data. So the agency he works for won’t be able to persuade people to fight the war he wants to fight.
Well, that’s not acceptable.[…]
The Hockey Stick Hoax should be a scandal as big as the discovery of the Piltdown Man Hoax. Bigger, really, since so much more is at stake.
But because the media are dominated by True Believers, they are doing everything they can to maintain the hoax, to keep the public from learning the truth.[…]
All this can be checked. I didn’t even change the names. “Mann” is Michael Mann; his co-writers on that hockey stick report are Raymond Bradley and Malcolm Hughes. “Steve” is Stephen McIntyre, and the writer of the report I’m working from is Ross McKitrick, who is a climate scientist. Their report is a chapter in Shattered Consensus: The True State of Global Warming, edited by Patrick J. Michaels.
It’s sad to see Archbishop Migliore being taken in by the falsehoods of the IPCC. It’s sad that in a time when we have to be wary of an ecumenism that verges on irenicism and syncretism, that the Vatican’s top diplomat the international body appears to have conceded as true the teachings of the fundamentalist modern pseudo-science religion of “climate change.”
