Gibbs: Climategate is ‘Silly’

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs hit the nail directly on the head in a statement about the phony “Climategate” scandal: Climate-gate global warming doubts ‘silly’.

WASHINGTON - The White House on Monday dismissed as “silly” the notion that global warming science had been compromised by emails exposing a row between top climate scientists. …

“I think everybody is clear on the science,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters.

“I think scientists are clear on the science. I think many on Capitol Hill are clear on the science. I think that this notion that there is some debate … on the science is kind of silly.”

He’s right. The only reason the climate change denial industry is working so hard to promote the false idea that there’s a “debate” going on in the scientific community is to cast doubt and spread confusion among the public.

No scientific theory is ever considered to be “100% certain.” But suppose you were about to take a flight, and a mechanic told you that there was a 95%+ chance that the airplane would crash. Would you just get on the plane anyway?

That’s exactly the situation we’re in with human-caused global warming. The scientific consensus is overwhelming, and it’s supported by mountains of data from multiple sources, all of it in agreement. Does it make sense to say that because we don’t have absolute certainty, we should just sit back and do nothing — and let the problem get worse and worse until it’s too late to do anything about it?
