Dear Mr President,
Every President seeks to leave a legacy, a memory of what they achieved in office, an unambiguous testament that all the personal effort and sacrifices they put into winning that high office meant something – that they made a difference.
There is a way you can do this, which will stand the test of time. Defund the climate science establishment.
For more than 30 years, America has poured enormous resources into investigating the alleged risk of anthropogenic climate change. All the climate science movement has to show, after all that time, is a set of climate models which don’t work, and a cowardly letter which seeks to use the authority of government to crush people who inconveniently highlight the glaring flaws in their work.
Demanding a RICO sanction against your academic and political opponents is an act of desperation, not strength. The climate alarmist movement is on its last legs. For 18 years, despite an unprecedented release of anthropogenic CO2, and a rise in atmospheric CO2 of around 60ppm, just under 20%, global temperatures have flatlined. The divergence between predictions and observations is now an utter embarrassment.
The movement will most likely fail in the next few years. Already leading climate scientists are switching to global cooling scares, in my opinion because they know the risk, that not only will the pause continue, but there is a real chance global temperatures may actually start to drop.
Mr. President, if you do the easy thing, and continue to associate your reputation, your legacy, with this failure, within your lifetime your legacy will be forgotten.
If instead you act against this pointless drain on American taxpayers, and take a courageous stand against those who would overturn the US constitution, to save themselves from the humiliation of having to admit they were wrong, your legacy will stand the test of time.
The choice is yours, Mr. President.
