The Democrat Party is up in arms about “Fake News.” They are convinced it was part of a nefarious plot by Republicans to keep Hillary out of the White House.
They also rail about fake news offered by Global Warming Deniers. Well, yet again, Dear Democrats, it is time to look in the mirror!
In order for Global Warming Alarmists to “convince” gullible people that they are “right” they needed to change a few facts. They needed to eradicate the Medieval Warm Period, the 1970s global cooling (coming Ice Age), and “the Pause.”
I would invite you to go to Wikipedia to learn about these issues, but thatwould be counterproductive. Why is that, ask you? Because, answer I, the Global Warming Alarmists have literally rewritten the Wikipedia entries to eradicate these as holes in their arguments – not just once, but many times.

[From the May article] There is an excellent new post… on the global cooling scare of the 1970’s and the efforts to erase it from the record by the climate alarmists… William Connolley created or rewrote 5,428 unique Wikipedia articles (to deny evidence that was counter to the Global Warming Religion).
The following anecdote by author Lawrence Solomon is instructive. He tried to correct an article that stated Naomi Oreskes infamous 97% paper in Science had been vindicated and Dr. Bennie Peiser had conceded that she was correct. He had spoken with Dr. Peiser and confirmed he had said no such thing.
“Of course Oreskes’s conclusions were absurd, and have been widely ridiculed. I myself have profiled dozens of truly world-eminent scientists whose work casts doubt on the Gore-U.N. version of global warming. Following the references in my book The Deniers, one can find hundreds of refereed papers that cast doubt on some aspect of the Gore/U.N. case, and that only scratches the surface.
Naturally I was surprised to read on Wikipedia that Oreskes’s work had been vindicated and that, for instance, one of her most thorough critics, British scientist and publisher Bennie Peiser, not only had been discredited but had grudgingly conceded Oreskes was right.
I checked with Peiser, who said he had done no such thing. I then corrected the Wikipedia entry, and advised Peiser that I had done so.
Peiser wrote back saying he couldn’t see my corrections on the Wikipedia page. I made the changes again, and this time confirmed that the changes had been saved. But then, in a twinkle, they were gone again. I made other changes. And others. They all disappeared shortly after they were made.
…William Connolley and his team tried to show that the global cooling scare of the 1970’s was a myth. They claimed only seven scientific papers of the period discussed global cooling, when there are 163 papers on the subject, including seven that claim CO2 is causing global cooling.
And thanks to HP for sending this to me.
