The hoo-ha over those hacked emails from the University of East
Anglia recalls the bogus "expose'" of ACORN that has just about succeeded in
destroying that vital grass-roots group.
This too is a propaganda masterpiece, which now has millions of
Americans convinced that all those scientists have long been plotting actively to
shut out rational dissent and "fudge the numbers."
In fact, it's been the other way around--the (very
powerful) deniers of global climate change deploying every means available, for years, to silence all
discussion, and bury all the evidence, of global warming as a by-product of industrialization:
As usual, however, all such actual suppression got, and
gets, almost no coverage, while this one case of alleged suppression has aroused what sounds
like universal screaming. (So it was with ACORN's non-existent "voter fraud," while the
GOP's immense election fraud, and voter fraud, and voter registration fraud has,
all along, been known to just a few.)
