L. Neil Smith at The Libertarian Enterprise - good screed on the man-made global warming hoax. [tle]

"Manmade Global Warming" is a collection of ideas that have been thoroughly discredited by real science for years. Yet you would never know it by observing the behavior of politicians, media personalities, and certain corrupt academics and scientists. There is not now, nor was there ever any scientifically respectable evidence for global warming. Like Lysenkoism, it is a complete and total fabrication, a hoax.

Yet it continues to have a strictly political life because, just as Lysenkoism served Stalinism by backing up Marx's flawed notions--Global Warming serves today's collectivists by offering them an excuse to seize control, not merely of the means of production, but of each moment, every aspect of the lives of every individual under their thumbs.

To be absolutely certain the opportunity isn't missed, dissenters--meteorologists and others willing to dismiss Global Warming as the crock it happens to be--have found themselves intimidated, denied funding and tenure, even fired. Here and there you'll even see demands that "climate change deniers" be prosecuted, imprisoned, or executed. Somewhere, the ghosts of Stalin and Lysenko are having a huge laugh together.
