Some of these rustlers of the public weal achieve fame and fortune. Sad. It only encourages others to employ fake science to scare the public. Take, for example, Al Gore. Although the man has a larger “carbon footprint” than a small city, he has won a Nobel Peace Prize and an Academy Award for his exemplary work warning us about Global Warming. Strike that: Global Climate Change. The herd bolts as he shouts from his pulpit even though he is clueless about any scientific subject and the people whose expertise he relies upon have no credentials as climatologists. Please. The man should have appeared in his movie, An Inconvenient Truth, with a black hat and a bandanna tied around the lower half of his face.
Even sadder, public wealth has been wasted financing green energy industries. Not one has produced any significant portion of the world's power requirements nor have any shown any potential for the future. However, that matters little. Solving the world's problems is not on their agenda. No, these rustlers are only interested scaring the herd to alter human behavior. As I said, social engineering. In that, they have been a success.
