Deadly Serious: DoE scientists claim global warming “irreversable” January 27, 2009

The BBC reports on a team of U.S. Department of Energy scientists publishing a report that claims global warming is “irreversable”.  This was inevitable.  America’s newly minted President has bought into the global warming debacle and now his agencies are beginning to line up to “prove” it is so, a necessary turn to give credence to a policy shift which will require billions of dollars in spending to allegedly help lesson the irreversability factor of global warming.  As I’ve said repeatedly ad naseum, in time, unless revisionist historians are on their game, this season of scientific knee-jerk, grant-mongering, hypothesis-conjuring environmental policy will be viewed as a primary case example of herd mentality and self-preservation (not the physical kind, but the “I need your money for my research” kind).

Update:

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), argues similarly that the new administration will create a crisis to justify spending.

Further update:

Anthony Watts reports on an enlightening press release by the U.S. Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee.
