The lame leftist talking points on climategate

As the left grapples with rising public awareness of the global warming fraud, talking points are being mass emailed to supporters. An example comes from ThinkProgress, and it is lame. They have got nothing but the old tricks.

Name-calling: [all bolding in original]

Right-Wing Swiftboat Campaign Against Climate Science [....]
helping fuel a right-wing "conspiracy" campaign led by global warming deniers.

Consensus


scientists agree this is the hottest decade on record and the consequences of carbon pollution are having a grave impact


Scaring people


• Scientists have uncovered a large expanse of "corrosive" water in the Canadian Arctic due to carbon pollution that is putting the marine food web at risk.

• "Unprecedented" rainfall in the United Kingdom has led to flooding of "biblical proportions" -- a predicted consequence of global warming.

Citing authorities as "facts":

FACT: Global Warming, The Science Is Clear

• • Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change: Global warming of the climate system is unequivocal and most of the observed increase in global temperatures since the mid-20th century is due to human-induced greenhouse gas emissions.

• National Academy of Sciences: Even if carbon dioxide emissions were halted today, the world would continue warming with "irreversible" effects -including rising temperatures and sea levels-that will last for a millennium.


Absolutely no attempt here to argue the substance of scandal itself.  The same old arguments, all dependent on public trust in the authorities who have vouched for the theory based on corrupt data.
