is almost always only a false-face

Power is what
all messiahs really seek:
not the chance to serve."

They don't hesitate to lie, make personal attacks, or completely destroy a person. They do whatever is necessary to achieve the goal; the end justifies the means.
I suspect it is partly due to the right having at least a vestige of a Christian conscience. For the anti-religious left, it is about ideology and too often that becomes their religion.
As H. L. Mencken said,
It works just as well if you replace "humanity" with the planet.
Environmentalism became the new religion in the sense it is a blind faith. You don't have to understand, in fact, it is better if you don't.
Few typify this blind faith more than Timothy Wirth. He organized the 1988 Senate Hearing that put the entire false claim of 'anthropogenic' global warming (AGW) on the world stage.
The New York Times reported,
The '99 percent claim' is simply false and one that no intelligent scientist would make.
That didn't matter, the political objective was to start the big lie...
Two facts give the lie to the claim.
Later Senator Timothy Wirth was interviewed on PBS Frontline.
He responded to questions about his role in the orchestrated charade:
These are devastating admissions of manipulation of a congressional hearing that go beyond the ordinary sleaze.
It is precisely why, the swamp exists, people despise politicians, and Donald Trump was elected. However, that is just the start of the story.
Wirth served one term and resigned to become Vice Chair of the United Nations Foundation and the 'Better World' Fund. This organization was established with a $1 billion donation from Ted Turner.
Here is a major objective of the Foundation derived from Turner's connection with the Club of Rome (CoR).
On March 30, 2015, the Washington Post printed a story headlined, "Setting the Record Straight - The real story of a pivotal climate-change hearing."
This is Timothy Wirth claiming it didn't happen as PBS reported.
Why would PBS report the story with clear indications that these are Wirth's words? More important, why did Wirth wait until now to contradict a story that is odious but rings true?
Wirth confirmed the original story as true by repeating it.
The Washington Post story is vague, mealy-mouthed, and unconvincing. Now Wirth has decided that admitting he lied is less damage than allowing the story to remain alive. No, it isn't!
All it confirms is he knew the information Hansen was providing was not true, but he wraps it in the cloak of bravery – he is heroic because he is saving the planet. Wirth lied about everything all the way through. There are a few significant reasons why he is lying once again.
They are all driven by panic as the AGW story collapses.
The Trump election, notably the withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement is exposing the entire fiasco. More people are looking at what was involved and asking questions.
Scott Pruitt began the process of dismantling the EPA, especially the regulations.
Now his replacement, Andrew Wheeler, formerly a lobbyist for the coal industry, is digging deeper and rooting out more. Look for attacks on Wheeler from the deep state within EPA that pushed Pruitt out.
Another story claims that public concern is waning,
This is occurring in large numbers despite the alarms. One source of those alarms throughout was the Guardian newspaper.
Their survey of 18,000 people in 17 different countries found that,
This, as expressed, sounds innocuous until you realize it means that 87.2% are not concerned, a devastating number.
Obama made sure the Paris Agreement was not a Treaty because he knew the Senate would not ratify it. The organizers also had to make it non-binding in order to get ratification by all nations.
As a result, emboldened by the US withdrawal of funding the Green Climate Fund that replaced the Kyoto Protocol is failing. Few nations are paying up, and Executive Director Howard Bamsey resigned because no new projects were approved at a recent meeting.
The fact that a leftist would lie to achieve a political goal is now, sadly, normal to the point of complacency.
Now, with the Wirth story, we have a leftist and extreme environmentalist willing to admit lying to a media outlet sympathetic to his views. He lied about the orchestration of the story in 1988, but the bigger lie is in the last line of the Washington Post story.
Twenty-five years later, we know Hansen was absolutely wrong.
Several articles identify and quantify the degree of his error. For example, one article is titled, "James Hansen's Climate Forecast of 1988 - A Whopping 150% Wrong."
Moreover, that should be the final nail in the coffin of anthropogenic global warming. Hansen's predictions were wrong, but so were all the other predictions of the IPCC.
They, including the political lies told to create and maintain them, are likely the most extensive collection of prevarications in history.
