The laws of physics are liberal plots

There are people who think the laws of physics are liberal plots, conceived to grab political power from Big Oil and Coal and give it to sustainable energy industries. Leaders in the oil and coal industries pay real money to create them.

For example:
But the tide seems to be turning. The Climate Conference fiasco in Copenhagen, the Climategate scandal and stabilization of worldwide temperatures since 1995 have given rise to growing doubts about the putative threat of "dangerous global warming" or "global climate disruption." Indeed, even Phil Jones, director of the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit and one of the main players in Climategate, now acknowledges that there has been no measurable warming since 1995 despite steadily rising atmospheric carbon dioxide.

I would laugh out loud at stuff like this but so many are following these pied pipers.
But the oil and coal industry leaders must realize they can't win this game... that in the end they will have to reinvent themselves.  Oil will peak in the next few years, which means the hallowed 'growth' will be impossible to achive in the oil industry.  As for coal...I guess I believe that some black swan event will occur, that the world leaders will finally finally understand how dire our situation is, and act as if we were at war with CO2.

Regardless of what happens, the future is going to be a bumpy ride.

While browsing I came across this site, and watched a couple of videos:

And my take away is that we climate hawks are doing it all wrong!
Maybe Obama is using these techniques to try to get somewhere with people I have no hope for.
