The Clinton defense strategy: Deny, deny, deny

It seems like ages ago when Bill Clinton was fighting for his political life amidst the Lewinsky scandal.  The initial stage of his defense came to be known as “deny, deny, deny.”  I remember doing that when I was four or five years old, and sometimes it worked if my parents weren’t absolutely sure I was guilty.

The “Climate Czar” has stepped forward with this strategy on her mind.  Carol Browner, whom I should hasten to add has no real authority to do anything, has announced that she simply doesn’t believe the e-mails.  She said they’re not all out yet and that she’d believe “the 2,500 scientists.”  Three problems here.  First, the whole problem for the warmists is that the e-mails are out.  And the e-mails show that the warmists themselves have known for a long time that their own data disproved the theory.  They tried to hide some evidence, falsified other evidence, and simply made up some more, then conspired to discredit other scientists who challenged all this.  Nothing Browner can say will make the informed public harbor any opinion other than that the warmists were involved in criminally dirty dealing.

Second, we don’t decide science by vote.  Scientific theories are established by using them to make predictions then experimentally testing those predictions.  On that score, the warmists look like a guy rock climbing in roller skates.  Attention Mrs. Browner:  The climate scientists formed a theory based on CO2, used it to predict the world would warm up, which it didn’t, and which all the deniers have been saying for a long time that it wasn’t, and now these scientists can’t say why world has cooled off, nor are they able to explain why they told everyone it was warming when they in fact knew otherwise.  This is what the famous “hide the decline” statement was all about.  If this whole issue had anything to do with science, that would be that.

Third, just exactly who are these “2,500 scientists” Mrs. Browner said she’d believe?  Are these some second echelon of conspirators out to discredit everyone who disagrees?  How would we know?  If they’re not part of the insider dirt, are they just more “political scientists” yelling “me too” while relaying the bad data and wrong conclusions of the ones who’ve been outed?  Until I see proof to the contrary, I’ll tend to suspect the administration of peeing in the bottle and calling it beer.

But it’s not really about science anyhow.  It’s about power, power, power, which is why the warmists appear to have settled on the old Clinton approach of deny, deny, deny.  So get ready for the next few months of the leftists in the Obama administration trying to resurrect the worthless reputations of a bunch of fraudulent British scientists while their media sycophants issue hourly press updates which will amount to, “See?  The President was right all along.  And we’ve got just 29 more days to save the planet!”

Postscript: The Koreans have a better method of dealing with men who perpetrate scientific fraud to get government money.  They prosecute them.
