I Hope the Sceptics Are Right

As I write this, the COP-15 conference in Copenhagen is falling apart in front of the world's eyes. It looks like governments will fail to come to any kind effective deal preventing climate change. Despite fine words from talented politicians, the fundamental problem of choosing between the environment and the economy (in many ways a false paradigm) has been made an obvious choice because of the global economic crisis. There is still time for a deal, but hopes are fading rapidly and it looks like any document will be weak and watered down.
So now we can only hope that the climate sceptics were right all along. Climate change was all a fraud and a hoax - perpetrated by a global communist conspiracy trying to rule the world. Scientists, journalists and politicians have all been corrupted by the riches and fame associated with the green lobby, and only a brave few had the intelligence and integrity to stand up to a dark and sinister industry. This fantasy scenario is right now so much better than the reality that we should all hope it's actually true.
The weight of responsibility is on climate sceptics now. I hope you are truly, truly confident in your beliefs. If you are wrong, you will go down in history as (at best) a pack of idiots and liars.
Well done. The status quo is to be preserved. It appears you have won.
