JAKARTA (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned Indonesians on Sunday that man-made climate change could threaten their entire way of life, deriding those who doubted the existence of "perhaps the world's most fearsome weapon of mass destruction".
Kerry described those who do not accept that human activity causes global warming as "shoddy scientists" and "extreme ideologues", and said big companies and special interests should not be allowed to "hijack" the climate debate.
That would be John Kerry, renowned climatologist and scientist, mind you. It's also interesting to note that they still haven't gotten all of the propaganda media on board with the new hotness "climate change" and some keep using the old tired "global warming" - as parts of the south (and north) see record snowfall and cold temperatures. It's hard to buy that we should work against global warming when there are record lows across the entire United States, heck, North America for that matter.
Also chuckle-worthy is the idea that "big companies" and/or "special interests" have "hijacked" the climate debate. The only folks on your side, John, are government scientists and Greenpeace. Everyone else has shied away after years and years of proven fudged, falsified, or otherwise faulty data have shown "global warming" to be the utter farce that we've claimed all along. Hockey stick graphs, improperly placed temperature probes, cherry-picked data; hate to tell you, Lurch, but it's *your* side that's been "hijacking" this.
I mean, how else has Al Gore made millions selling "carbon credits"?
That is all.
