'Finally, it is essential that intellectual integrity be restored to the scientific profession. Too much money has been devoted to funding global warming scientists, who have depended for their livelihood on a high level of public and political anxiety about global warming, and have hence tended to suppress the evidence against the popular hysteria. .... Enlightenment standards of scientific integrity have been subverted by government cash and media hysteria. For the sake of all our futures this must never be allowed to happen again.'

CO2 Scare Campaigners Plumb Newish Depths by Pushing Children to the Frontline

How low will they sink?  CO2 Scare campaigners use children to push their case in an American court.  They have been building up to this for a while.

It is long since past time that I got this blog up and running with posts again.

  This disturbing news item will spur me to do just that.

The harm that such campaigners have already helped bring to children includes starvation, energy poverty, suppressed economic development, and of course a terrible fear of the future.

Meanwhile, the climate system continues to act just as it might if the rising CO2 levels, from whatever source, were of little consequence.   Where these increasing levels have had a noticeable impact, however, has been in helping increase food supplies by virtue of boosting plant growth.
