The Truth About Krugman: More Inconvenient Than Ever
by

Such a peach, today’s column – “The Truth, Still Inconvenient” – by Paul Krugman, economist and former consultant to the company that created the global warming industry, ‘monitizing‘ (sic) its relationship with green groups, scientists and, I’m pretty sure, economists in pursuit of creating that better atmosphere for enacting policies to add value to their uneconomic investments…purchased in anticipation of creating a global warming industry.

It begins:

“So the joke begins like this: An economist, a lawyer and a professor of marketing walk into a room. What’s the punch line? They were three of the five ‘expert witnesses’ Republicans called for last week’s Congressional hearing on climate science.”

Sneer quotes! Yeah that’s a good one. Like they’re Al Gore or something. And what the hell would an economist know about climate? What chance is there that an economist could add to the debate?

What would a statistician and Wharton School forescasting expert know about models? Or a lawyer about EPA’s proposed regulations? Sheesh.

Here’s one, Paul. The IPCC hires a railroad engineer and economist, who is oddly hailed by the — wait for it! — New York Times as ‘the Indian climatologist who heads the panel’. My ribs!

Here’s an even better one:

An economist, who “got $50,000 from Enron to serve on the company’s phantom-like advisory board” – that’s that company that invented the global warming industry – derides an economist as having expertise on global warming in a column proclaiming, as an economist, to possess ‘the truth’ about global warming, unlike those silly lawyers, marketing professors (actually, statistician and forecasting expert) and, erm, economists.

Man, life sure is funny on the Left.
