Letter: Scientists nothing but charlatans

What a great autumn we had — one of the brightest and sunniest on record.

What a great autumn we had — one of the brightest and sunniest on record.

If that’s global warming, I’ll take it, but of course there’s been no recorded global warming in 18 years.

That doesn’t stop David Suzuki, Greenpeace and other eco alarmists from still sounding the alarm, raising public anxiety to ensure their free money keeps rolling in.

They call skeptics who question their claims deniers and flat earthers.

Who were the original flat earthers?

Most of the scientists before 1492 when Columbus sailed the ocean blue.

Back then they asserted, “97 per cent of serious scientists believe the Earth is flat; this consensus proves this is fact not a theory. We are the most highly-educated people on this flat Earth. Trust and believe us. You can’t trust that tiny minority of shoddy scientists who disagree and think the Earth is round!”

Even the supreme king, Barko Bomber, said: “It is settled science. Any reputable scientist will tell you the Earth is flat. When I walk into a room, big or small, I know I am the smartest person in the room. Believe me when I say the Earth is indeed flat. Don’t listen to those skeptics and deniers who say the Earth is round.

“They are the same people who believe in the tooth fairy. If you fall for that foolish far-fetched theory, a round Earth, you’ll find yourself sailing off the end of this flat Earth and you’ll be falling, falling. Then you will be sorry!”

As you can see, scientists have often been wrong for centuries.

Today’s scientific charlatans are no exception.

Great minds think alike and fools seldom differ.
