The following link came to my attention in a comment on Jo Nova's blog.
It involves a short dramatisation of The Downfall of the UN IPCC following their recent ‘failed’ and ‘doctored’ Summary for Policy Makers Report.
Watch it and if you like it, forward the link to all your friends.
I suppose the thing I got out of it was that big scams and big lies show up all too frequently in our history, and everyone asks how can it happen? How do 'they' get away with it? Well I suppose it happens when too many people in the inner circle of power (media, politicians, bureaucrats, scientists, business people and so on) benefit from an epidemic of ignorance and irrational thought.
It has happened many time before, and it will happen again.
The Lord Monckton Foundation aims to innoculate as many people as possible from this madness of crowds by conducting research, publishing papers, educating students and the public and taking every measure that may be necessary to restore the primacy and use of reason in science and public policy worldwide, especially insofar as they may bear upon the rights of the people fairly and fully to be informed, openly and freely to debate, and secretly by ballot to decide who shall govern them, what laws they shall live by and what imposts they shall endure.
The media needs to return to its purpose of questioning and reporting those in authority and/or those with power.
