Will EPA List of Most-Wanted Eco-Fugitives Soon Include Gore?
Several of the people shown in the graphic below have been captured or surrendered since Dec. 10, 2008, when the newly-created EPA list of its “most-wanted list of environmental fugitives” became the subject of a Dec. 11 post on this blog.
Much to my surprise and chagrin, the agency’s current list of fugitives — which appears to include only 24 people — does not include the following people whom I think, when all is said and done, will be found guilty of their participation in a massive worldwide scheme to enrich themselves by pushing global warming alarmism and all of the regulation that comes with it:
- Former Vice President Al Gore — A global warming evangelist for years, he earned nearly half-a-billion dollars off the apparently-fraudulent data uncovered via recent “ClimateGate” e-mails which surfaced and seem to show evidence of fraud and conspiracy among the research scientists and others whose work formed much of the basis of calls for extreme climate change regulation.
- Professor Philip Jones — He is the director of the Climatic Research Unit at the UK’s East Anglia University, epicenter of the “ClimateGate” scandal and a climate scientist whom CNN reports has ‘gone underground’.
- Michael Mann — Inventor of the famous “hockey stick” graph which, 10 years ago, claimed to show that, after 1,000 years of decline, global temperatures had shot up to their highest level in recorded history. It was made famous in Gore’s Academy Award®-winning documentary on global warming, “An Inconvenient Truth.”
- Dr. James Hansen –He is director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies who has been accused of abusing the public trust and has even been arrested for obstructing officers and impeding traffic during a protest against mountaintop mining in West Virginia.
No doubt, others are involved and should appear on this list as well. That begs the question: “Will the EPA’s list of most-wanted environmental fugitives soon include Gore, Jones, Mann, Hansen and others?
Inquiring minds want to know.
