The Internet is All Over Climategate While the MSM Sleeps

The mainstream media has its head in the sand again while one of the largest conspiracies the world has ever seen is exposed via Internet media. As most readers have heard by now, years of emails and programming code have been uncovered from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, which is run by the scientists whose research is the basis for the world's belief in man-caused global warming. Their science is also the backbone for a massive global tax proposal on industry which the Obama administration is pushing in Congress right now.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It stands to reason that the Mainstream media is no longer the mainstream.

The blogs are!

The Science and Politics of Climate Change

The events of the last few of weeks, involving stolen professional correspondence between a small number of leading climate scientists—so-called climategate—demonstrate my point. Both the theft itself and the alleged contents of some of the stolen emails reveal the strong polarization and intense antagonism now found in some areas of climate science.

Climate scientists, knowingly or not, become proxies for political battles. The consequence is that science, as a form of open and critical enquiry, deteriorates while the more appropriate forums for ideological battles are ignored.

CLIMATEGATE - Who is Patrick Michaels?

Climategate is the scandal resulting from the public exposure of thousands of e-mails from researchers connected to University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU). The e-mails allegedly reveal that what underlies the global warming “consensus” is a pattern of data massaging, avoidance of sharing data to prevent proper peer review, and behind-the-scenes efforts to silence critics.

Not exactly the scientific method we were taught in high school.

Obama science advisers grilled over hacked e-mails

House Republicans pointed to controversial e-mails leaked from climate scientists and said it was evidence of corruption. Top administration scientists looking at the same thing found no such sign, saying it doesn't change the fact that the world is warming.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the official response is that even though the data claiming to show the world is warming is an admitted fake (what part of "hide the decline" do you not comprehend, idiot?), the earth is getting warmer because they have data claiming the world is getting warmer, which is an admitted fake (what part of "hide the decline" do you not comprehend, idiot?).

These are the same people who assured us that Saddam had "nookular" weapons.

Climategate Crooks Recast Themselves As The Victims

In a pathetic effort to make the climategate scandal go away, the crooks involved in manipulating data to “hide the decline” in global warming are recasting themselves as the victims of the whole affair, attempting to shift the blame to criminal hackers who stole data, when all the evidence suggests the CRU emails were leaked from the inside.

Of course, the only real criminals are those who were caught fraudulently massaging climate data in order to comply with the United Nations’ agenda for a global carbon tax, a world government and complete takeover of the global economy.

CLIMATEGATE - Researcher: NASA hiding climate data

The fight over global warming science is about to cross the Atlantic with a U.S. researcher poised to sue NASA, demanding release of the same kind of climate data that has landed a leading British center in hot water over charges it skewed its data.

Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said NASA has refused for two years to provide information under the Freedom of Information Act that would show how the agency has shaped its climate data and would explain why the agency has repeatedly had to correct its data going as far back as the 1930s.

"I assume that what is there is highly damaging," Mr. Horner said. "These guys are quite clearly bound and determined not to reveal their internal discussions about this."

Climategate Outrage Explodes As Carbon Tax Agenda Collapses

Outrage surrounding the climategate scandal is increasing as desperate apologists for the crooks caught manipulating data to “hide the decline” in global warming attempt to distance themselves from the perpetrators, burning a few scientists to save the larger carbon tax gravy train in a cynical damage limitation exercise.

The potential for the climategate scandal to derail the gargantuan agenda to exploit fraudulent fearmongering about global warming in order to ram through a new carbon tax is growing after the ringleader of the scam, Phil Jones, the head of the Climactic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, temporarily stepped down pending an investigation.

UM researcher defends report findings on climate shift

Right now, Mayewski said, the Antarctic’s temperature is actually protected by the hole in the ozone layer. The hole, Mayewski said, has strengthened westerly winds, which in turn has kept warm air from reaching the Antarctic ice.

But Mayewski said the hole in the ozone layer is predicted to close by 2060, which means the westerlies will eventually weaken and usher in warm air over Antarctica. That could mean, he added, a dramatic and quick impact on sea levels. The Antarctic contains 90 percent of the planet’s ice, Mayewski said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It must be great to be a climate "expert."

Weather forecasters cannot predict the weather a month in advance, but they try and they catch a lot of crap for every mistake they make. Every failed prediction is seen by all.

But a climate "expert" makes predictions that are a half century into the future, demand fiscal and infrastructure policy be fixed arund those predictions, and by the time everyone sees that those predictions were no better than next month's weather forecasts, the climate "expert" is retired or dead and could care less what people think of him or her.

In a recent article in the New York Times, the American Jewish journalist Thomas Friedman blamed the so-called Arab-Islamic “Narrative” for all the troubles surrounding US-Muslim relations-from the 9-11 terrorist events in 2001 to the recent killing of 13 American soldiers in Texas by American-born and American-bred Nidal Malik Hasan.

Friedman suggested that Muslims all over the world ought to show gratitude to the US for helping them in places like Kosovo, Bosnia , Darfur , Somalia , Lebanon , Kurdistan, post-earthquake Pakistan , post-Tsunami Indonesia , Iraq and Afghanistan . True to his style, he carefully ignored the killing of hundreds of thousands of mostly innocent people in the context of American intervention in these countries.

Fallout Over "ClimateGate" Data Leak Grows

The reverberations have extended beyond the campus of the University of East Anglia and the CRU. E-mail messages from Michael Mann, a professor in the meteorology department at Penn State University who has argued that mankind is threatening "entire ecosystems with extinction in the decades ahead if we continue to burn fossil fuels at current rates," appeared in the leaked files. Now Penn State has opened an investigation into Mann's work, and the U.K.'s weather agency has been forced on the defensive as well.

Dec 02 16:32


A fair reading of the e-mails reveals nothing to support the denialists' conspiracy theories...
The stolen e-mails have prompted queries about whether Nature will investigate some of the researchers' own papers. One e-mail talked of displaying the data using a 'trick' — slang for a clever (and legitimate) technique, but a word that denialists have used to accuse the researchers of fabricating their results. It is Nature's policy to investigate such matters if there are substantive reasons for concern, but nothing we have seen so far in the e-mails qualifies....

    White House Balks at ClimateGate, Says Climate Change is Happening

    When asked about ClimateGate, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dismissed its importance, emphasizing that “climate change is happening.”

    Of course climate change is happening. Soon we’ll be calling press conferences to declare, “The earth is moving” or “It’s going to get dark tonight.” The reality is the climate has been changing ever since there was a climate, and part of that change was a cooling period as recent as the 1940s to the 1970s giving rise to fears of a coming ice age. When Gibbs spouts this rhetoric, he’s clearly referring to human-induced warming, but since when has climate change become synonymous with manmade global warming? And what does it take for a scientific consensus to stop being one?

    These IPCC findings are largely based on the work of CRU, whose scientists are shown in the leaked emails to have suppressed "inconvenient" data, ruthlessly excluded some scientists from peer-reviewed journals and flouted Freedom of Information laws governing public documents,

    CLIMATEGATE - Peer Pressure

    The thing to understand about the scandal surrounding the e-mails leaked from Britain’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) is that it is actually three scandals. There is a scientific scandal, in which the leading lights of the climate-research cabal conspired to fudge data and silence skeptics. There is a media scandal, in which reporters and editors on the “climate beat” at the world’s most prominent news organizations acted as stenographers for the cabal and ignored the scandal when it broke. And there is a political scandal, in which officeholders here and abroad used the bunk science as a pretext for expanding their control of (and take from) the world’s energy markets.

    Carl Herman interview: US lies of omission and commission with threat of war against Iran

    For those who would like to hear me discuss the lying rhetoric of US government echoing the same lies we witnessed preceding war with Iraq, click here for an hour interview on GCN radio show, Crash! Are you ready? with host George Whitehurst Berry (please be patient while the interview link takes a few moments to download; the interview is 40 minutes if you move the circle forward during commercials).

    Climate-cult con is hard to 'bear'

    When did global warming turn into a forced religion?

    My daughter came home from school recently with a spring in her step and a song on her lips. With no foreshadowing -- or time to call an exorcist -- out came this chilling refrain:

    " . . . You can hear the warning -- GLOBAL WARMING . . . "

    By the time her father and I removed our jaws from the floor, we had learned that:

    A) All the kids had been coerced into singing this catchy ditty, which we called "The Warming Song," at a concert for parents.

    B) Further song lyrics scolded selfish adults (that would be us) for polluting our planet and causing a warming scourge that would, in no short order, kill all the polar bears and threaten the birds and bees.

    ClimateGate's Josh Steiner Moment

    "In fact, one skeptic raised this very issue about tree-ring data in a comment posted in 2004 on RealClimate, the blog operated by climate scientists. The comment, which questioned the propriety of 'grafting the thermometer record onto a proxy temperature record,' immediately drew a sharp retort on the blog from Michael Mann, an expert at Penn State University:

    'No researchers in this field have ever, to our knowledge, ‘grafted the thermometer record onto' any reconstruction. It is somewhat disappointing to find this specious claim (which we usually find originating from industry-funded climate disinformation Web sites) appearing in this forum.'

    Climategate: Man-made Global Warming Fraudsters Exposed

    Thanks to a fortunate turn of events, hackers have retrieved secretive IPCC emails discussing the manipulation of data to support the man-made global warming fraud and how the scientists advocating this hoax have been working to silence their peers that don’t support the lie.

    Hopefully, this information has come out just in time to keep President Obama from signing the climate treaty in Copenhagen that will obligate us to pay the bulk of the global carbon tax, a tax not meant to fight climate change, but to finance a tyrannical world government.

    The Internet is All Over Climategate While the MSM Sleeps

    The mainstream media has its head in the sand again while one of the largest conspiracies the world has ever seen is exposed via Internet media. As most readers have heard by now, years of emails and programming code have been uncovered from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, which is run by the scientists whose research is the basis for the world's belief in man-caused global warming. Their science is also the backbone for a massive global tax proposal on industry which the Obama administration is pushing in Congress right now.

    Bombshell UN Documents Outline Plan To Use Climategate Crooks In “End Run” Around National Sovereignty

    The documents outline a program of implementing a global system of governance based around environmental regulations and laws, stressing the agenda for the “evolutionary nature of strengthening international environmental governance.”

    The aim of elevating UNEP’s influence to a position where it dictates rules to nation states, rather than nation states being the supervisors of UNEP as is currently the case, is advocated.

    The documents discuss recruiting academia to further the power of UNEP, noteworthy in light of the recent climategate scandal where scientists at major universities were caught hiding evidence of global cooling.

    CLIMATEGATE - Media Ignore Al Gore’s Financial Ties to Global Warming

    As NewsBusters reported here, here, and here, there are huge dollars to be made from global warming alarmism. However, conceivably no one is better positioned to financially benefit from this scam than Dr. Global Warming himself, former Vice President Al Gore, a fact that the media will surely not share with Americans any time soon.

    CLIMATEGATE - Obama, Maurice Strong, Al Gore key players cashing in on Chicago Climate Exchange

    “Obama Years Ago Helped Fund Carbon Program He Is Now Pushing Through Congress” is a FOXNews story by Ed Barnes. In short, “While on the board of a Chicago-based charity, Barack Obama helped fund a carbon trading exchange that will likely play a critical role in the cap-and-trade carbon reduction program he is now trying to push through Congress as president.”

    The charity was the Joyce Foundation on whose board of directors Obama served and which gave nearly $1.1 million in two separate grants that were “instrumental in developing and launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls itself “North America’s only cap and trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide.”

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Now, to be clear, yes indeed, the climate is changing. But then, climate always changes, and has been doing so constantly for the last four and a half billion years.

    At issue is that the data claiming to prove humans are a threat to the Earth and requiring our submission (fat chance) to new taxes and controls over our lives is discredited.

    And left unsaid; Obama's financial links to Al Gore's carbon exchange!

    AP Promotes Copenhagen 'Momentum', Ignores ClimateGate

    An Associated Press article Sunday read like a virtual advertisement for global legislation on climate change: completely oblivious to the ClimateGate scandal and failing to give one drop of ink to anthropogenic global warming skeptics.

    The piece, written by the AP's Ben Fox, announced its intent with the headline "Leaders Say Momentum Building on Climate Change." Readers were then treated to 570 words exclusively about these political leaders and their claims.

    Climate change: this is the worst scientific scandal of our generation

    The reason why even the Guardian's George Monbiot has expressed total shock and dismay at the picture revealed by the documents is that their authors are not just any old bunch of academics. Their importance cannot be overestimated, What we are looking at here is the small group of scientists who have for years been more influential in driving the worldwide alarm over global warming than any others, not least through the role they play at the heart of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

    Obama Science Czar John Holdren is directly involved in CRU’s unfolding Climategate scandal. In fact, according to files released by a CEU hacker or whistleblower, Holdren is involved in what Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist Canadian climatologist Dr. Tim Ball terms “a truculent and nasty manner that provides a brief demonstration of his lack of understanding, commitment on faith and willingness to ridicule and bully people”.

    CLIMATEGATE - Eco barons lead the way

    The Green List has unearthed 100 tycoons or wealthy families worth £200m or more who have made either serious investments in green technology and businesses or hefty financial commitments to environmental causes. In total, the Green 100 are worth nearly £267 billion.

    This enormous sum demonstrates that many of the world’s richest tycoons and entrepreneurs have embraced environmentalism.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Like I said, there are trillions of dollars on the line here.

    And these people didn't get rich by letting a little thing like the truth get in their way!

    Sea levels will rise by twice as much as previously predicted as a result of global warming, an important international study has concluded.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Okay, well since they blew their previous prediction by 100%, how do we know this one didn't wander in the wrong direction?

    Obviously, this is a campaign to terrorize the people back into obedience to the global warming cult, and frankly, the Times has shot past "Propaganda" into "looking silly and pathetic."

    If there were not so much at stake here, this would be seen as very funny.

    Actually, I did succumb to a short burst of laughter on seeing this.

    Global Warming: "Fixing the Climate Data around the Policy"

    The results of these high level consultations were forwarded to the Danish government as well as to the governments of participating member states. A so-called summary report for policymakers was drafted by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, on behalf the corporate executives participating in the event. This report has very little to do with environmental protection. It largely consists in a profit driven agenda, which uses the global warming consensus as a justification. (

    CLIMATEGATE - When scientists behave like bullies

    This just in from the Times of London: After the leak of highly embarrassing e-mail messages from the University of East Anglia's influential Climatic Research Unit, CRU has been forced to admit that it dumped "the original raw" climate data used to bolster the case for human-caused global warming, while retaining only the "value-added" - read: massaged - data.

    In short, the CRU dumped the scientific data, but archived information that supports its conclusions. "It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years," wrote Times environment editor Jonathan Leake.

    Global Warming Supporters In Denial As Climategate Scandal Continues To Fester

    The Climategate scandal continues to fester like an infected wound covered with a wet bandage. The mainstream media and global warmists are in denial of the spreading Climategate scandal and trying to move on as if nothing has happened. Left wing pundits deny there is a smoking gun; in spite of smoking gun evidence. Global warming scientists are attacking each other while the UN IPCC chief tells us there is "virtually no possibility" they are wrong.

    Climategate: Follow the Money

    Climategate, as readers of these pages know, concerns some of the world's leading climate scientists working in tandem to block freedom of information requests, blackball dissenting scientists, manipulate the peer-review process, and obscure, destroy or massage inconvenient temperature data—facts that were laid bare by last week's disclosure of thousands of emails from the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit, or CRU.

    But the deeper question is why the scientists behaved this way to begin with, especially since the science behind man-made global warming is said to be firmly settled. To answer the question, it helps to turn the alarmists' follow-the-money methods right back at them.
