The IPCC has been running around naked and ugly ever since Michael Mann killed off the last few thousand years of climate history and chopped down Briffa’s trees.
They believe that by making loud proclamations that they are clothed in fine official government science, people aren’t going to notice that they are bare-assed naked and hideously ugly.
The emperor’s new clothes
The label given to any fictional item that viewers have been induced into believing as real..
Anderson’s tale involves a vain king who was preoccupied with his appearance and his wardrobe. A pair of swindlers took advantage of this by pretending to be able to weave the finest cloth, which couldn’t be seen by people who were either unfit for office or were particularly stupid. The king decided to have a suit of clothes made from the fabric in order to test which of his courtiers was unfit for office. As he didn’t want to appear stupid or unfit for rule himself, he pretended to be able to see the new clothes, as did all of his courtiers. He paraded the ‘new clothes’ through the streets and the onlookers, also not wishing to appear stupid, all admired them. A small child, who didn’t understand the apparent necessity for pretence, piped up ‘But he has nothing on!’. The bubble of pretence burst and soon all the onlookers were repeating what the child had said, whilst the king continued the procession, attempting to maintain his dignity by pretending that nothing had happened.
