Tony Blair Explains Why IPCC “Science” Is A Difficult Endeavour

Politicians are obliged from time to time to conceal the full truth, to bend it and even distort it, where the interest of the bigger strategic goal demands it be done […] Without operating with some subtlety at this level, the job would be well-nigh impossible

One wonders what an InterGOVERNMENTAL Panel is supposed to do?

    Blair was talking about his “solution” of the Northern Ireland problem, which was to take power out of the hands of the reasonable but ineffectual politicians and hand it over to the extremists whose nasty little civil war had been blighting British politics for forty years.
    A bit like handing climate policy to a committee headed by Delingpole and Monbiot.
    (which, come to think of it, couldn’t be worse than the present set up).

    One could agree with Ol’ Tony’s statement if the deception is to make negative effects of some threat far worse by its exposure to the public. But the threat has to be real, and the effects have to be severe – such as the impact of a large meteor or asteroid. But both the threat of climate change AND the “science” used to promote it are bogus (which could account for why the job has been so difficult for those poor alarmists). And even if this threat were real, there is nothing that humans would be able to do about it. So, what are the real goals of the deception? The only ones that occur to me are yet more taxes and putting government (i.e., politicians, like Tony and Pachauri, and 100Ks of faceless, unelected, un-fire-able bureaucrats) in control of even more of our lives.

    Bend over backwards?
