Global Warming Alarmists Lie In Order To Frighten You
The Day After Tomorrow is a disaster movie. The plot is fiction, a typical apocalypse story line common in film about the folly of man bringing about his ultimate demise. Fiction. Not too shabby fiction, either. Fiction, I am given to understand, means imaginary, made up, or not true. Still, the movie, like all of the genre, is also a warning to man: be not proud. Put down the nanobots, step away from Skynet, and for Gaia's sake, do not drive that Hummer. The point being, using a story to dramatize some broader point is, of course, one of the main literary functions of fiction.
But then there are lies.
Let me take an aside here. I want to take a moment just now to tell you that this is not an article about how global warming is a myth or a conspiracy. It's not an article about how conniving scientists have conspired to dupe the entire planet in order to suckle at the teat of Big Daddy Research Grant. It isn't. No, this about is about truth in science. Truth, I am given to understand, is one of the main practical and moral functions of science.
Take, for example, this tweet:

Sinkholes are caused by any number of reasons.
Yep. Although that’s the best part of the whole thing. It wasn’t even a sinkhole. They even got that basic fact of the story wrong.
Government funding is how they survive so we can assume that the carrot was held over thier head and they accepted thier lying agenda so the chimps in the cage can eat
