Going Down

Hong Kong economists say it's not a a good idea to lie about global warming… it’s a GREAT idea
"How many people in doomsday cults really believe what they’re saying? How many of them really think the end is nigh? How many of them are just preying on the weak and lonely, tweaking their fears to keep them in line?

When it comes to the doomsday cult called “global warming,” it’s becoming increasingly obvious that the hucksters are in charge."

"A new peer-reviewed paper...is openly providing a “rationale” for global warming proponents to engage in mendacious claims in order to further their cause.

The paper appears to support or provide a formula for why lying or “information manipulation” is able to further the cause of man-made global warming and “enhance global welfare.” The authors use a mathematical formula to study information tactics.

The authors, Assistant Professors of Economics Fuhai Hong and Xiaojian Zhao, note how the media and environmental groups “exaggerate” global warming and then the offer their paper to “provide a rationale for this tendency” to exaggerate for the good of the cause."
