Number one on the Kübler-Ross model, that would be:
...scientific evidence means nothing to those with an anti-global warming agenda, who point to illegally hacked mails to try to prove that global warming is a hoax. Sadly for them, the anti-global-warming hysteria isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.You know whose global warming ideas I like? David Byrne's:Only now "the house" is the liberal fascist house of cards moreso than the planet.
The ugly part of this has more to do with scientists jockeying for position and arguing over how to best put forth their theories in a contentious political climate. The uglier part is those who are distorting this for the purpose of advancing anti-environmental theories.
If the Crap and Enslave legislation wasn't so Machiavellian in nature, this whole situation might be funny. Instead, global warming in particular and the administration in general feel like The World's Longest Time-Share Sales Pitch. Maybe they think if they blow enough smoke up the public bottom we'll achieve their level of brainwashing. Buy in now, and you too can become an Operating Thetan, or some other Progressive thing. Woohoo!
Update: Eric S. Raymond offers a survey of scientific fraud.
