The Great Climate Change Hoax
The word hoax has been firmly associated with global climate change ever since Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe started to use it, calling climate change the "greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people." Only he got it wrong… again.
The great hoax is that Sen. Inhofe understands climate, understands science and is moral enough to tell the truth. For all the clamor, for all the barbs thrown at everyone who does not agree with ex-Mayor of Tulsa, there has yet to be any science put forward that explains the observations that we have. They have no theory. They have no facts. So, being the professional politician that he is, Ihofe can only attack the measurements, the numbers were fudged, the scientists cheated, etc., etc. It becomes a conspiracy that requires more suspension of disbelief than about any other. The number who had to be in the know about Kennedy's assignation is small. Maybe the 911 Truthers need to account for a few more. But this requires the secret collaboration of tens of thousands of scientists. Preposterous.
