Consensus? What Consensus? Part 2

For Consensus? What Consensus? Part 1 see here

US Journalist,  Alan Caruba has written his own take on the letter by the 16 scientists on his blog WARNING SIGNS.

Alan talks of the 16 signatories to the Wall Street Journal Op-Ed piece. Indirectly, TCS blog contributed to the inclusion of one of the signatories.

Alan writes:
What brought them together? On the surface it was just another of the countless articles that have been published over the years as scientists of real merit and courage took on the juggernaut of those for whom global warming had become a vast flow of government and foundation funding.
Alan writes that, with the release of the Climategate e-mails, it became clear that even the Alarmists knew the Earth had entered a cooling cycle around 1998.
The Wall Street Journal article said, in the plainest language, that candidates for public office “in any contemporary democracy…should understand that the oft-repeated claim that nearly all scientists demand that something dramatic be done to stop global warming is not true.”

In fact, scientists had been signing petitions opposing the global warming hoax for a very long time. The problem was that the mainstream media either paid them no attention or dismissed them as "skeptics" and "deniers".
The Inconvenient Truth was that the warming had stalled. The alarmists can "massage" the data but, in the end, they cannot hide the truth, the Inconvenient Truth that warming had stalled.
The article calmly said, “The fact is that CO2 is not a pollutant.” Indeed, more CO2 in the atmosphere is a good thing, aiding increasing crop growth and healthier forests and jungles worldwide.
At one stage the alarmists were saying that the world could not feed the bergeoning world population. However, the increase in vital-to-life CO2 has in fact increased the world's biomass, the world's ability to feed the population.

Alan concludes:
It has taken a very long time for most of the public to come to the conclusion that they have been the object of an elaborate hoax. In America polls demonstrate that global warming is at the very bottom of their concerns these days. In time, wind and solar power, electric cars, biofuels, and other environmental delusions will join that list.
