The revelation that it is more than likely Gleick rather than Bast from Heartland wrote the forged document is not going to be welcome news for the warmists. Because almost every one of them has been caught in some way claiming that Gleick was the hero, that he had taken the moral high-road.
Gleick, went the claim, stole the papers to show the immoral behaviour of Heartland. Well, if that is your claim, if your claim is to be the moral virtuous one, then you are the one who must acting impeccably in all other respects.
Given the expert testimony which now backs the huge wealth of circumstantial evidence pointing to Gleick as the forger, it now appears beyond reasonable doubt that he not only lied to Heartland to obtain the documents, but was a bare faced liar to his own friends and supporters when he denied being the forger.
Those who were quickest to back him, those who were most ardent in their support have now been shown likewise to have denied the truth – Gleick stabbed them in the back!
He is no hero. He is nothing but a deluded morally corrupt and sick individual.
Gleick lied. He lied in the full knowledge that the Heartland would be seriously damaged by his lie. He lied knowing that the Heartland alone and none of the warmist NGOs had tried to make their donor list public. He lied, knowing that the Heartland had had to make their donor list private because of the nasty vicious sliming attack by people like Gleick. He lied, saying the Heartland were preventing debate, when it was they, and not him, who had extended the hand of friendship to ask him to come and join in a debate with them.
He is an utter slimeball.
He would be an utter slimeball if he was just some warmist blogger, but no! He was head of the ethics task force of the AGU. He was not only morally corrupt, he was morally corrupt when it was he, that set himself up to be the leader of morals. How high can you get and fall so low?
In Gleick, we see no science, we see no morality, we see nothing to praise or condone. But we do see something to pity: his extreme paranoia can only be pitied like any who are deluded by mental illness. And it is a real illness, not of just one individual, but of a whole group. A group of people who fear the truth that the climate is not warming as they predicted, who fear the day when the world will wake up to their corruption and who fear the backlash from the whole scientific community when they realise that their trust has been abused.
And they should live in fear, because all who deny the truth should truly fear the day that like Gleick they are found out.
