. . . climate authorities' data, accumulated from more than 30,000 research stations, shows that the world's temperature has not risen for a decade and a half.
It didn't exactly matter when the fundamental claims of Al Gore's fiction An Inconvenient Truth were shown to be false. Rises in atmospheric CO2 concentrations have not driven historic global temperature increases as claimed . . .
. . . the sheer proliferation of information. Never before in mankind's history has such a wealth of knowledge been so accessible to such vast numbers of people. This circumstance not only allows for tremendous ease in the sharing of ideas, but also multiplies the stakes massively if one of those ideas finds popularity and the rewards start to flow. That such fame, wealth, and adulation can provide powerful motivations for the abandonment of moral and intellectual integrity is easy to see.
In the end, nations are not so different from the people that populate them. In that, it behooves each to examine closely what it is he has chosen to worship. Sometimes, the answers to be found under such scrutiny are uncomfortable. But if we are steadfast -- we might be surprised by exactly whom we choose to worship.
