Environmentalists’ Claims Continue to Melt

By Joseph Kellard

I learned from an Objectivist blogger that the Utah House of Representatives just passed a resolution that: "implies climate change science is a conspiracy, and urges the EPA to stop all carbon dioxide reduction policies and programs. Among other things, the resolution claims there is ‘a well organized and ongoing effort to manipulate global temperature data in order to produce a global warming outcome.’"

The Heartland Institute posted a brief report about the bill here, which leads to a link to a fuller report here.

You can also read the bill in full.

As the blogger pointed out, the government should have no involvement in scientific matters, including catastrophic global warming. But it's nevertheless a telling sign that a legislative body is actually coming out and voting against this scam that has become orthodoxy to many Americans and others. It's telling us that environmentalists' claims on this issue are continuing to melt.

Until recently I had always assumed the data they were misinterpreting was real. Misinterpreting fake data... the mind boggles.
