Save Us From the Truth

David Harsanyi has a very good piece in the Denver Post today focusing on Colorado State University's Bill Gray, who isn't too afraid to speak out regarding the greatest hoax of our time:

"They've been brainwashing us for 20 years," Gray says. "Starting with the nuclear winter and now with the global warming. This scare will also run its course. In 15-20 years, we'll look back and see what a hoax this was."

He goes on to add that he expects the slight warming trend to begin a natural reversal in the next few years. He adds however, that we aren't likely to hear much from scientists on the subject of global warming hype:

Both Gray and [climatologist Roger] Pielke say there are many younger scientists who voice their concerns about global warming hysteria privately but would never jeopardize their careers by speaking up.

Imagine. Scientists fear jeopardizing their careers by speaking the truth. Perhaps that trend, like warming, will soon begin to reverse itself.
