Tear Down the Warmist Wall

James Delingpole, delightful and indefatigable columnist for the UK Telegraph and author of Welcome to Obamaland, I've Seen Your Future and it Doesn't Work,  provides a blistering summation of the impact of the revelations from Climategate.  The chicanery demonstrated in the emails we have seen thus far clearly prove that Warmists have known their preposterous theories were unsupportable after all.

Delingpole regales us with the story of his conversation with a London radio host working the phones for Britain's largest commercial news and talk show station (LBC):

"She told me she has been simply inundated with callers, all of them utterly unconvinced that human influence has made any significant (impact) on so-called "Global Warming". She was desperate to get a few balancing calls from people who do believe in AGW but just couldn't find any." 

This is in jolly old England, mind you, a nation known to tilt a bit more toward the point of view of the climate change creeps.

Delingpole doesn't sugar-coat his analysis of what he feels is the certain fall of the entire Warmist movement:

"Climategate has finally given us the chance to express openly what many of us secretly felt all along:

"AGW is about raising taxes; increasing state control; about a few canny hucksters who've leapt on the bandwagon fleecing us rotten with their taxpayer subsidised windfarms and their carbon-trading; about the sour, anti-capitalist impulses of sandal-wearing vegans and lapsed Communists who loathe the idea of freedom and a functioning market economy.

"We know it's all a crock and we're not going to take it.

"This is our Berlin Wall moment! They can't stop us now!"
