Climategate: MSM Writers Try to Ignore Scandal in Global Warming Stories But Readers Bring Them Back to Reality
An hilariously bizarre situation is happening in the wake of the growing Climategate scandal. Many of the mainstream media stories about global warming are simply pretending it doesn't exist. Perhaps they feel that by ignoring Climategate entirely that it will just go away. Unfortunately for them, the readers of these global warming stories keep bringing up the inconvenient truth of Climategate by mentioning the scandal in the comments section over and over and over again.
Two days ago, after the world found out about the CRU emails, the local paper the Honolulu Star Bulletin, ran a story "Mauna Loa Observatory's carbon dioxide readings near worst-case scenario " It was also the cover story for the paper edition, with full-color photo, front page, above the fold. This obvious attempt to re-assert the Global Warming Agenda inspired me to write them the following letter to the Editor.
I told you; the global warming cultists are going to ramp up the hysterical fear-mongering between now and Copenhagen.
Here is the email I sent to Star Bulletin
Shame on Star-Bulletin for this obvious pandering to private interests intent on making millions of dollars “Enronizing” the Cap and Credit Carbon tax system. And I do not choose that word casually. Enron’s Ken Lay aided Al Gore in setting up the structure for Al’s company (which has invested $150 million in “selling” global warming), planning to do to the world with Carbon Dioxide what Enron did to California with electricity!
Setting aside the breaking story of the whistleblower inside the Hadley Climate Research Unit that leaked emails and documents confirming that the global warming “industry” deliberately falsified data to create a climate of fear and panic for political purposes, I would like to remind you that the measurement station at the Mauna Loa Observatory sits on top of a volcano which has been in active eruption for close to 20 years. Carbon Dioxide is emitted by volcanoes. Indeed it is the second most abundant gas in volcanic venting after water vapor (which is also a greenhouse gas).
I am insulted that you treat your readers as uneducated simpletons with little grounding in the sciences. No wonder the corporate media is in decline.
Needless to say, it has not been published.
