A poll commissioned by Der Spiegel shows fear of global warming dropped rapidly from 62% to 42% in Germany. Scandals at the IPCC, rejection of heavy-handed warming propagandizing and a world climate that refused to follow the models is leading to a major disconnect between government officials and their electorates. Something has to give. We expect the media, left-wing campaign organizations and U.N. bureaucrats will close ranks and try and go back to biased scientific proclamations, stifling debate and demonizing their opponents. Can they succeed this late in the game? We”ll learn much more about their game plan at the U.N. climate negotiations in Bonn in two weeks. Any chance they’ll surprise us and open up the process to honest debate and sound science?
