Another worm turning?

The admirable website Tech Central Station has published an article on global warming by Dr H H J Labohm, a senior visiting fellow at the Nederlands Instituut voor Internationale Betrekkingen Clingendael.

"Time is running out to beat about the bush. The man-made global warming paradigm is about to collapse", Dr Labohm writes. "In its wake the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) process will have to change tack. In the mean time, the Kyoto Treaty seems to be moribund".

Interestingly, Labohm quotes the economic adviser of President Putin, Andrei Illarionov, to whom this Blog has referred in a similar context.

One of the fascinating insights offered was Illarionov’s complaint about the behaviour of the British delegation, headed by Sir David King, who - unsuccessfully – had tried to exclude certain 'undesirable' scientists from taking the floor. This is the same David King, who with Prof. Anderson, masterminded the destruction of an estimated 11 million animals during the food and mouth epidemic.

But, while King has completely bought into the global warming paradigm and Kyoto, Illarionov criticised "the ideological and philosophical basis on which the Kyoto Protocol is built", arguing:

That ideological base can be juxtaposed and compared with man-hating totalitarian ideology with which we had the bad fortune to deal during the 20th century, such as National Socialism, Marxism, Eugenics, Lysenkoism and so on. All methods of distorting information existing in the world have been committed to prove the alleged validity of these theories. Misinformation, falsification, fabrication, mythology, propaganda. Because what is offered cannot be qualified in any other way than myth, nonsense and absurdity.
And that is from a Russian.

This is but a taste of Dr Labohm's article, who concludes with the that "The dénouement is imminent". The full article is well worth a read.
