A Double Dose of Watts Up With That

First, from the hugely popular, and multi-year award winning blog Watts Up With That, a 125 year-long timeline showing how environmental scientists, and the media, are seemingly always touting climate disaster, be it cold or warm.  Bottom line: they know nowhere near as much about the climate as they want you to believe (and, alas, as they themselves believe).

Second, and also from Watts Up With That, an outstanding commentary by an OLS hero, Paul Driessen.  His topic is the massive hypocrisy of the left and it's attack on real science.  Here's an excerpt:
While proclaiming victimhood, they [the left] detest and vilify any experts who express doubts that we face an imminent climate Armageddon. They refuse to debate any such skeptics, or permit “nonbelievers” to participate in conferences where endless panels insist that every imaginable and imagined ecological problem is due to fossil fuels. They use hysteria and hyperbole to advance claims that slashing fossil fuel use and carbon dioxide emissions will enable us to control Earth’s climate – and that references to computer model predictions and “extreme weather events” justify skyrocketing energy costs, millions of lost jobs, and severe damage to people’s livelihoods, living standards, health and welfare.
Good, valuable articles both.
