Are the Climate Wars Ending? I Don’t Think So…

But I do think that the skeptics have finally worked their way into the battle. (Just to be clear, we’re talking about Al Gore Hysteria Vs. Rational Thinking here; those wars, not the “did temps increase by .65 or .66 C over the last 100 some odd years?” discussion.)
From Skeptical Swedish Scientists, this is an overview of the Climate Wars:
Hello there fellow warriors for truth, justice and the scientific method, Well, the Climate Wars are still being waged … but for how much longer?
…maybe the Global Warming Scare, after 40 years, will just slowly fade away, just like Eugenics and Lysenkoism. Let’s hope so.
There’s billions of dollars in investments (Gore, Pachauri, etc., ) to be salvaged, more bazillions on taxes and fees, 3rd world countries counting on confiscated money (from the countries that earned it) to better support the palace building projects of their dictators, and so on.
The there’s that POWER to be considered. The urge to rule over we, the mindless little peons, that’s so strongly help by so many on the left side of the “discussion.”
“The desire to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it” — H L Mencken
“The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.”
– Michael Oppenheimer,

No, CAGW was never about warming, it was always about money, power, and ideology. Therefore the Climate Wars aren’t ending, they’re just beginning. And if it isn’t climate then our would-be masters will come up with something else.
Let’s keep in mind that most of the history of the world has been people being controlled by all-powerful government entities of some sort. Freedom is dangerous, especially to the ideologies that want to control us. Just think of the freedom of thought and speech that was permitted in the old Soviet Union. Or China. Or Cuba. Or…
Heck, even in the UK or Germany you can get tossed in the can for saying the wrong thing. Yes, the US must be taken down, freedom is dangerous.
