Political Lunacy and Self-fulfilling Prophecy

I wonder if anyone else finds it interesting that the government's approach to any problem is to create a new bureacracy to explore that problem. This new bureacracy then finds that it is indeed a major problem and requires ever more resources to address the problem. Surprise, surprise.

Such is the case with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. With each report they release their predictions become more dire, and their hollering more shrill. And the "solution" to the problem is more money for those within the IPCC clique to do more research, as well as sweeping more taxation opportunities for the politicians they serve.

Had they come back and said, "Yep, it's getting warmer, but that's probably the normal cycle of things and we'll probably start cooling again soon", how much more funding do you think they would have gotten? How much longer would the bureacracy continue to exist?

Now you know why we get the alarmism from them.
