Prominent global warmunist: the truth is, I’m a liar

global warmingLet’s see if I have this right: a prominent global warmunist is sent

an anonymous document in the mail describing what appeared to be details of the Heartland Institute’s climate program strategy.

Said warmunist then

attempted to confirm the accuracy of the information in this document. In an effort to do so, and in a serious lapse of my own professional judgment and ethics, I solicited and received additional materials directly from the Heartland Institute under someone else’s name.

Ethics? They’re for the little people. What happened next?

The materials the Heartland Institute sent to me confirmed many of the facts in the original document..

WARNING: multiple sneer quotes follow. Let the reader beware.

Decoded, the last quote means many of the “facts” in the original document were not substantiated.

“Fake but true,” “lying for the truth,” “it’s for the children,” and “Where’s my grant money?!” all come to mind.

Or perhaps we should send the whole Peter Gleick story down the memory hole for an old fashioned re-write. After all, “In Oceania at the present day, Science, in the old sense, has almost ceased to exist.”

And that last line might explain the plea that “the science of global warming is settled.”

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
