Alex Jones Exposed!

Introduction

To some people Alex Jones is a hero, a super patriot, someone who's putting their life on the line to expose tyranny and corruption, To other people he comes across as a championship wrestler (the fake kind) or a used crooked car salesman.

UCLA fires professors for reporting real scientific data

James Enstrom, an epidemiologist at the UCLA School of Public Health, was recently fired, because his research "is not aligned with the academic mission of the Department [of Environmental Health Sciences]."

Enstrom's crime? Not finding evidence that supports increased regulation by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). He also pointed out that a prized supporter of CARB, Hien T. Tran, has a fake Ph. D. This is particularly embarrassing because in December 2008, CARB approved diesel emissions rules based on Tran’s findings.

Leading US Physicist Labels Satellitegate Scandal a ‘Catastrophe’

In a fresh week of revelations when NOAA calls in their lawyers to handle the fallout, Anderson adds further fuel to the fire and fumes against NOAA, one of the four agencies charged with responsiblity for collating global climate temperatures. NOAA is now fighting a reargaurd legal defense to hold onto some semblance of credibility with growing evidence of systemic global warming data flaws by government climatologists.

Climate Realism: Not to Be Denied Any Longer

Last week’s meeting of 700+ scientists, policymakers, and concerned citizens in Chicago to discuss the science and economics of global warming at the Fourth International Conference on Climate Change was a huge success as measured by the intent of its sponsors: to establish once and for all that the climate realist position is increasingly the accepted conclusion among thinking people in the three categories noted above. That position is this: manmade global warming is not a crisis.

Google still censoring Climategate?

For many weeks now, readers have been sending me emails describing how Google has been doing its best to hide information relating to Climategate, which has been the single biggest story on the Internet since the Climategate emails came to light on November 19. By Nov. 26, the term had gone viral and Google returned more results for “climategate” (10.4 million) than for “global warming” (10.1 million). As the Climate Scandal exploded, and increasing numbers of blog sites covered it, the number of web pages with Climategate continued to climb. On Dec. 7, Google’s search engine found 31.6 million hits for people who searched for “Climategate.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As an experiment, I searched "Michael Rivero" on Google and got 268,000 results. The same search at BING yielded 726,000 results.

Google doesn't love me any more!

Yahoo does not indicate the total number of records it finds. Wikipedia has flat-out banned any mention of me (one slipped through by accident apparently) and all the YouTube videos I did with Alex Jones have now been deleted.

Boo hoo, boo hoo. :P

New paper makes a hockey sticky wicket of Mann et al

We find that the proxies do not predict temperature significantly better than random series generated independently of temperature. Furthermore, various model specifications that perform similarly at predicting temperature produce extremely different historical backcasts. Finally, the proxies seem unable to forecast the high levels of and sharp run-up in temperature in the 1990s either in-sample or from contiguous holdout blocks, thus casting doubt on their ability to predict such phenomena if in fact they occurred several hundred years ago.

NOAA: Warmest June Ever! Caveat: We Made It Up

NOAA gets its temperature data from the Goddard Institute for Space Studies. They calculate the average temperature of the Earth using data from land-based thermometers and ocean buoy and ship measurements of water temperature. However, there is a major problem with how GISS measures temperature in a very large region — the Arctic.

The problem is that they don’t have any thermometers there. So they make it up. No, really!

Legal verdict: Manmade global warming science doesn’t withstand scrutiny

A cross examination of global warming science conducted by the University of Pennsylvania’s Institute for Law and Economics has concluded that virtually every claim advanced by global warming proponents fails to stand up to scrutiny.

The cross-examination, carried out by Jason Scott Johnston, Professor and Director of the Program on Law, Environment and Economy at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, found that “on virtually every major issue in climate change science, the [reports of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] and other summarizing work by leading climate establishment scientists have adopted various rhetorical strategies that seem to systematically conceal or minimize what appear to be fundamental scientific uncertainties or even disagreements.”

The Arctic is not melting

The “warmers’ are such an amazing propaganda machine. Joseph Goebbels, the king of Nazi propaganda, surely would feel like a proud papa were he to return from his well deserved visit to Hell. At least the “warmers” haven’t sent us “skeptics” to concentration camps, yet. Though I’d wager some would love to. Words like honesty, truth, accuracy, and reality are apparently not in their vocabulary. People such as Adolf Hitler, Vladimir Lenin and William James (father of modern psychology) have all made statements to the effect of “tell a lie often enough and people will believe it, ” which kind of sounds like the “warmer” mantra.

Cold wave kills six million fish in Bolivia

At least six million fish have died in three rivers of Bolivia due to the intense cold wave sweeping through the country in the past few weeks.

Authorities in the eastern Bolivian province of Santa Cruz declared an alert following the death of fish in the Grande, Pirai and Ichilo rivers that run through the tropical region.

This is an 'environmental catastrophe' brought on by the lowest temperatures registered in Santa Cruz in nearly half a century, Gov. Ruben Costas told reporters.

CLIMATEGATE: A Welcome Round of Layoffs

It wasn’t all that long ago that the Chicago Climate Exchange was expected to be the next big thing. As the market for indulgences carbon credits developed – and especially as cap and trade took effect – millions of people were going to begin trading credits on the exchange. Two of the biggest investors in the exchange were Al Gore (through Generation Investment Management) and Barack Obama (through the Joyce Foundation). As the Examiner points out however, the market for carbon credits hasn’t really developed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Al Gore and Barack Obama were going to get rich on your backs through the fraud named "Human Caused Global Warming." Trillions for the bankrupted US GOvernment and billikons for the carbon traders were on the line, with you footing all the bills.

For the moment, they have been stopped, and we can count coup for this one.

But rest assured the snake oil salesmen will be back with this or another fraud to strip you of what is left of your wealth and your freedom, for fraud is all they know. Continued vigilance (and continued support for those websites fighting against the fraud ) are needed to keep Americans free.

Record Kan. corn crop forecasted !!!!!!
Kansas farmers are expected to harvest the biggest corn crop in the state's history this year.

The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service on Thursday forecast corn production in Kansas at 629.2 million bushels. That would surpass last year's record crop of 598.3 million bushels.

Kansas growers planted 4.7 million acres in corn this year, the highest planted acreage for corn in the state since 1936.

Kansas is expected to produce by far more bushels of corn this season than wheat. The 2010 wheat crop is pegged at 369 million bushels, down less than 1 percent from last year. The wheat crop was grown on 8.2 million acres, down 600,000 acres from a year ago.

Is Al Gore Sane Enough to Stand Trial?

Is it a simple kind of Napoleon complex? Or is there something psychologically deeper? Will he be allowed to stand trial if Senate investigations lead to indictments?

I have reflected on one of his commentaries that I saw on YouTube. He had become frightened of the carbon dioxide in the soil and what might happen if it gets out. Carbon dioxide – CO2 – the stuff plants need to live and grow – stuff that’s been around since before the beginning of life – stuff life can’t do without.

Big Green Lies are Imploding

As World War Two wound down, in 1945 Italian partisans found Benito Mussolini and his girlfriend trying to flee to Switzerland. They shot both of them and then hung them by their heels in the Piazza Loreto in Milan. He had led the National Fascist Party and had been the 40th prime minister from 1922 until being deposed, jailed, and rescued by his pal Adolf Hitler.

I was reminded of this when I read a list of 1970 Earth Day predictions because, sooner or later, lies implode and the liars must be held accountable.

Satellite Failure Means Decade of Global Warming Data Doubtful

Caught in the center of the controversy is the beleaguered taxpayer funded National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). NOAA’s Program Coordinator, Chuck Pistis has now confirmed that the fast spreading story on the respected climate skeptic blog is true.

However, NOAA spokesman, Program Coordinator, Chuck Pistis declined to state how long the fault might have gone undetected. Nor would the shaken spokesman engage in speculation as to the damage done to the credibility of a decade’s worth of temperature readings taken from the problematic ‘NOAA-16’ satellite.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember how the Warmistas have been screaming for you to ignore the cold weather you see right in front of you, because they had data fro a satellite that "proved" 2010 was the hottest year on record?

Well...

Seems somebody was taking a closer look at the satellite maps which showed the Great Lakes temperature up by about 10-15 degrees F, and spotted a data point indicating water temperature well above boiling! NOAA has now been forced to admit that the satellite has a problem, and has been consistently indicating higher temperatures than actually exist, by about 10-15 degrees F. NOAA has removed all the accumulated data for the last decade from their servers, and of course, every global warming alarmism based on that data is not invalidated!

Gore concedes on climate this year

Gore said “the government was not working “as our founders intended it to” and laid more blame at the feet of fossil fuel interests who conducted a “cynical coordinated campaign” with “unprecedented funding” and “who have spent hundreds of millions of dollars just on lobbying.” He criticized “polluters” for “dumping global warming pollution into the atmosphere like it was an open sewer.”

Gore blamed the skeptics for “attacking science and scientists.” “They [the skeptics] did damage and cast doubt,” Gore said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, the fact that Gore is saying the fight against Man-Bear-Pig is over for "this year" tells us he will be back next year, as does his scapegoating of everyone around him rather than admitting the whole thing was a very expensive contrived hoax in the first place.

Bottom line: The Warmistas will be back! This is no time to quit pointing out the frauds wherever they are being promoted.

CRU cleared of wrong doing? NOT: Parliamentary Trickery

"their suggestion that Jones and others were doing nothing more than “discarding data known to be erroneous” is simply absurd. There was no testimony to the Committee (nor has it ever been suggested) that the tree ring data was measured incorrectly or that the data was “erroneous” – the data is what it is. The tree ring data goes down instead of up – but that doesn’t make it “erroneous”. It only means that the data is a bad proxy – something that was concealed from IPCC readers. It is discouraging to read such bilge."

Environmentalists say ice melt is being caused by global warming with Arctic temperatures in the 1990s reaching their warmest level of any decade in at least 2,000 years, according to a study published in 2009.

Current trends could see the Arctic Ocean become ice free in summer months within decades, researchers predict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It didn't melt, it cracked off, and if you stop and think about it,. ice is ALWAYS breaking off the edges of the ice masses. Or did you think space aliens dropped off that iceberg that E.J. ran the Titanic into?

All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.,” they wrote.

The Temperature Decline That Dare Not Speak Its Name

Let’s look at the NOAA claim that the surface temperature increased .11° C during 2000-2009. Although they did everything possible to hide this information from the public, media, politicians, and even fellow scientists, by the late 2000s even die-hard alarmists were eventually forced to accept that the surface temperature record showed no warming as of the late 1990s, and some cooling as of about 2002. In other words, overall, for the first decade of the 21st century, there was either no warming, or no warming and even some cooling.

Climategate inquiry glosses over the facts

The tone of the Climategate inquiries was set by Britain's parliamentary inquiry. With an election looming, the parliamentary committee could only hold one day of hearings, and found that the scientists involved had not attempted to mislead people.

Yet the hearings did not include testimony from the most severe critics of the hockey stick graphic, such as Canadians Steve McIntyre and Ross McKitrick, who could have explained exactly why the e-mails did suggest impropriety.

The parliamentary inquiry was also assured by the UEA that the quality of the science would be reviewed by another inquiry to be headed by Lord Oxburgh. Yet Lord Oxburgh's panel handed down a short report which did not examine the quality of the science at all.

Climategate: A Reality Check on Climate Change

Those people still supporting AGW (anthropogenic global warming) are dependent on funding to support their current positions. That funding is in turn dependent in the continuation of faith that AGW (anthropogenic global warming) is correct. After all, when Galileo proved that the Earth Orbited the Sun, funding for continued research into epicycles vanished abruptly, along with tenures and the value of every degree issued in the field of Epicycles.

Climategate: reinstating Phil Jones is good news – the CRU brand remains toxic

As I pointed out earlier this week, the AGW lobby has recently shown signs of belatedly getting its PR act together, of assuming a false humility, of being less dogmatic, in an effort to win round public opinion. It is an attempt to turn over a new leaf – on the Dave Cameron model, to detoxify the brand. It is, of course, a ploy to recover lost credibility and impose upon the public more effectively. Putting Phil Jones back at the centre of the picture completely wrecks that rehabilitation scheme. It is as if Dave appointed Lady Thatcher to oversee his “compassionate Conservatism” agenda.

Climategate Investigations Are Arrogant Insults

There were two British investigations into the behavior of scientists at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia (UEA) exposed in leaked emails. Both reports provide no answers, no explanations and are only telling for what they did not ask or do and how they were manipulated. The blatant level of cover up is frightening. These are acts by people who believe they are unaccountable because they have carried out the greatest scam in history with impunity. The degree of cover up in both cases is an arrogant in-your-face statement that we are the power and are not answerable to anyone. Their cover up almost belittles the ones they are investigating.

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY

Human Caused Global Warming is not being researched; it is being promoted. Al Gore and his fellow investors have spent over a hundred million dollars in creating a crisis of human-caused global warming out of (quite literally) thin air. They are not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. They expect to reap billions in profits from the trading of Carbon Credits, a "license to pollute" available for a price and subject to brokerage fees. One of the people Al Gore relied on to create this scheme was Ken Lay, late of ENRON, aka the Crooked "E". Al Gore plans to use Carbon Dioxide to do to the world what Ken Lay did to California using electricity; loot the people!

Sneaky, bullying, self-pitying Climategate scientists write to Sir Muir Russell inquiry begging: 'Make it a whitewash hat trick!'

Here is a summary of what they urge in the letter, which you can read in full at Bishop Hill. (Hat tip: Nick Mabbs)

1. There should be a cosy arrangement where corrupt, parti-pris scientists should be free to carry on behaving as badly as they like without any risk of their skulduggery being exposed by awkward public investigations. Private emails in which, say, they gloat about the deaths of climate sceptics, fantasise about physical violence against sceptics, plot how to misuse public funds, plot how to discredit scientists who legitimately disagree with them, plot how to shut down journals which don’t act as their amen corner, etc, should remain private.

2. The Muir Russell inquiry should continue to promulgate the great Climate Change lie.

IPCC consensus on climate change was phoney, says IPCC insider

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change misled the press and public into believing that thousands of scientists backed its claims on manmade global warming, according to Mike Hulme, a prominent climate scientist and IPCC insider. The actual number of scientists who backed that claim was “only a few dozen experts,” he states in a paper for Progress in Physical Geography, co-authored with student Martin Mahony.

“Claims such as ‘2,500 of the world’s leading scientists have reached a consensus that human activities are having a significant influence on the climate’ are disingenuous,” the paper states unambiguously, adding that they rendered “the IPCC vulnerable to outside criticism.”

Global Warming Update: NASA Accused of 'Climategate' Stalling

The man battling NASA for access to potential "Climategate" e-mails says the agency is still withholding documents and that NASA may be trying to stall long enough to avoid hurting an upcoming Senate debate on global warming.

Nearly three years after his first Freedom of Information Act request, Christopher C. Horner, senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said he will file a lawsuit Thursday to force NASA to turn over documents the agency has promised but has never delivered.

Pope Catholic; night follows day; IPCC found telling pack of lies about sea level rises

IPCC lies, cheats, distorts again. Yes, all right, it is a bit of a “dog bites man” or “pizza found to contain mozzarella and tomato resting on dough base” kind of story. But on the day in which Britain’s new Prime Minister announced in the Queen’s speech that one of his government’s main goals is to “combat climate change”, it’s perhaps just as well to remind ourselves of the kind of junk science and misinformation that is inspiring his green policies.

"Climategate" & Leaked Emails: Scientists that should be Jailed

Among some of the facts that came out: These Scientists urged each other 'to present a "unified" view on their theory of man-made climate change, calling it an important "common cause." They also advised each other on how to adjust data so it wouldn't compromise their hypothesis, discussed ways to keep opposing views out of leading Science journals, and gave tips on how to "hide the decline" of temperature in certain inconvenient data.

California's 'Climategate'

Last year, members of the California Air Resources Board (CARB) learned that the author of a critical study on diesel engine soot impacts, Hien Tran, had falsified his academic credentials. Tran admitted the deception, and accepted a Board demotion. However, Tran’s analyses remained the basis for highly controversial and costly regulations imposed upon operators of trucks, buses and other diesel-powered machinery.

CLIMATEGATE - VA AG Cuccinelli to invoke VATA over Climategate?

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is invoking a state anti-fraud law to demand the University of Virginia turn over years worth of documents related to climate scientist Michael Mann, targeting about $500,000 in grants that funded Mann’s studies.

Climategate whitewash excoriated by climate scientists Judith Curry

When I first read the report, I thought I was reading the executive summary and proceeded to look for the details; well, there weren’t any. And I was concerned that the report explicitly did not address the key issues that had been raised by the skeptics.

Climategate: Googlegate?

What is going on at Google? I only ask because last night when I typed “Global Warming” into Google News the top item was Christopher Booker’s superb analysis of the Climategate scandal.

It’s still the most-read article of the Telegraph’s entire online operation – 430 comments and counting – yet mysteriously when you try the same search now it doesn’t even feature. Instead, the top-featured item is a blogger pushing Al Gore’s AGW agenda. Perhaps there’s nothing sinister in this. Perhaps some Google-savvy reader can enlighten me…..

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Al Gore is a major investor and adviser at Google.

The IPCC's Brand New Global Warming Screw-up: Happy Earth Day?

Today is the 40th annual Earth Day, when the Blue Bird of climate change look at every country to see if they have been environmentally good or bad. She rewards the good countries with favors and punishes the bad by pooping on their bad gas-guzzling methods of transportation.
Bangladesh, must have been a good country, because a new study has proven the UN's climate change body, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is wrong again, and despite the IPCC prediction, Bangladesh is not about find itself under the rising ocean anytime soon.

Global warming: Examiner exclusive interview with Richard Tol: IPCC was 'captured'

Richard Tol writes of the IPCC being captured by political activists and how that colored the IPCC report AR4 in 2007. He also characterises the Oxburgh report on Climategate as 'harsh criticism', saying the report faulted their performance on their mission critical duties. As Professor Tol participated in the IPCC process since 1995, his criticism of the IPCC's internal processes and procedures should be take seriously.

Climategate: a scandal that won’t go away

Lord Oxburgh himself is linked to various commercial interests which make money from climate change, from wind farms to carbon trading. None of the panel he worked with on his report were climate “sceptics”; and one, Dr Kerry Emanuel, is an outspoken advocate of man-made global warming. Even so, it was surprising to see just how superficial their inquiry turned out to be, based on two brief visits to the CRU and on reading 11 scientific papers produced by the research unit in the past 24 years, chosen in consultation with the Royal Society (which is itself fanatical in promotion of warming orthodoxy).

IPCC Report Card

BACKGROUND
United Nations countries belong to an organization called the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which publishes a report every six years. Often referred to as the "climate bible" these reports are relied on by governments around the world.

The latest was released in 2007. Sometimes called the AR4 (the Fourth Assessment Report), it contains 44 chapters and is nearly 3,000 pages long. Written by people organized into teams - Working Group 1, 2 and 3 - it consists of three smaller reports bundled into one.

Climategate whitewash

‘Climategate scientists cleared of wrongdoing” read the headline in yesterday’s Post. Who expected anything else? The two self-inquiries launched by the University of East Anglia into its Climatic Research Unit (CRU) were always destined to produce whitewashes, as did a recent UK parliamentary inquiry, and as will an “independent” review by the UN.

CLIMATEGATE TEAM FAILED TO GET WORK CHECKED BY EXPERTS

The review, led by Lord Oxburgh, said the potential for misleading data was “very great” and recommended the unit improved its record-keeping.

It said: “It is very surprising that research in an area that depends so heavily on statistical ­methods has not been carried out in close collaboration with professional statisticians.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is the surprise; Lord Oxburgh's review isn't quite the total exoneration claimed by the global warming cult!

Climategate: CRU whiter than – er – whitewash, as world laughs at AGW scam apologists

Well, we all knew it would be a second whitewash of CRU and its climate alarmist pseudo-data; but even the most hard-headed sceptics among us probably thought that Lord Oxburgh’s inquiry would be a tad more sophisticated in its brushwork, that it would make some effort to persuade rather than patronise, that its bland conclusions would be a little less blatant and in-your-face.

FLASHBACK - Climategate: Faster and Faster, the Dominos Fall

The Climategate files were made public just a month ago, and the email messages that were revealed have already had real impact. The emails show us scientists being petty and political, even corrupt. Suppressing dissenting science and perhaps even violating the law to prevent data from being shared with the rest of the world. They show us people with failings, egos against egos. But the emails themselves aren’t enough to call the overall science of CO2-driven, human-caused climate change into question.
