Dangerous Non-science

"A half truth is a whole lie."
--Yiddish proverb

The anthropogenic climate change movement has been dealt some hard and potentially lethal blows recently. First, there was the Climategate scandal in November 2009. Then there was the much-hyped United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Copenhagen in December 2009. And now this: Glaciergate.

That the earth's climate undergoes changes at various times is undisputed. That certain of these changes are due to human activities is unproven. In spite of this, some African governments have swallowed the anthropogenic climate change agenda hook, line, sinker, fishing rod, fisherman and fisherman's boots. For example, this year (2010) the Zambian government has introduced an annual carbon emissions tax on all motor vehicles. This can only be detrimental to economic and social development.
