This may come as a shock to you, but global warming is a controversial subject in the United States these days. (No, really, it is.)
The very existence of man-made global warming, not to mention the array of policy choices for responding to it, are such flash points in American politics that it’s nearly impossible to raise the subject in social settings without sparking an awkward conversation. Worse, those discussions are nearly always set spiraling downward by the most annoying question ever posed to a climate scientist or journalist: “So, do you believe in global warming?”
A better question is : Do you believe in “Mann/Hansen” made warming? About 10 years ago, Hansen magically turned a 70 year long US cooling trend into a warming trend.
Mann did some even more impressive work, erasing 1,000 years of global history
Perhaps Freedman should take his road show to Europe, and ask them if they believe in global warming?

According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.
What kind of silly person would dare question the world’s top scientists? They need their funding, and it doesn’t help to have informed laymen questioning their junk science.
