NY Times Science Writer Blasts 'Smug Groupthink' Among Climategate Scientists

Unpredictable New York Times science columnist John Tierney has again struck a blow against conventional wisdom. His Tuesday column is a scathing piece on the treasure trove of damning emails hacked from the Climatic Research Unit at East Anglia University, a hub of climatologists who believe in the theory that global warming is caused by man -- and willing to use disreputable anti-scientific tactics to further that belief.

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?

Dear Main Stream Media, Climategate Story’s Not Going Away

Dear Main Stream Media,

We know you are doing your best to cover this up. It is understandable, but very immoral. Instead of focusing on one of the biggest scientific scandals ever, and identifying the real scoundrels involved, you have given in to both corporate and governmental pressure. A lot of big companies pay you a great deal of money to advertise their products and they really want to continue the lies about the existence of global warming that they have helped perpetuate. Governments have their own shady agendas.

What you must understand is that WE THE PEOPLE are not letting this go! We will get the word out and we will make sure the truth is told, even if you stopped doing that long ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The mainstream media isn't mainstream any more.

They have the money, but WE have the eyes and ears of the newly skeptical public.

WaPo Includes Link to RealClimate in Mann's Letter to the Editor ...But Omits Letter From Key Critic

A week after the explosion of the current Climategate scandal revealing that leading climate scientists engaged in ongoing email conversations about how to hide or obfuscate the real data on global warming (or lack thereof), the Washington Post on November 25 editorialized on the matter. Like other establishment media types, the Washington Post sought to make light of the shocking prospect of scientists acting wholly unethically. (Keep in mind that the panic over global warming and the Gore & friends call for massive energy taxes and rationing were based in large part on the work of these same scientists.)

Of all the 8 gates referred to, I choose the Zion Gate as the example, not only because of its name, but because of its history. A history that has been repeating itself in Israel, Jerusalem in particular since 1948. The zionists have been attempting to ‘cleanse’ the city of the ‘enemy’ as routine procedure. Neighbourhoods have popped up on Palestinian owned land, slowly but surely, Palestinians are being gotten rid of by home demolitions or illegal evictions.

Ziongate has become the biggest threat to the people of Palestine, in reality, a continuance of the Nakba.

The Fraud Is Everywhere: SUNY Albany and Queens University Belfast Join Climategate

In 2007, I published a peer-reviewed paper alleging that some important research relied upon by the IPCC (for the treatment of urbanization effects) was fraudulent. The emails show that Tom Wigley — one of the most oft-cited climatologists and an extreme warming advocate — thought my paper was valid. They also show that Phil Jones, the head of the Climatic Research Unit, tried to convince the journal editor not to publish my paper.

Climate Gate: Where Politics and Religion Unite

Anthropogenic, or manmade, global warming is not open to debate. High Priest Al Gore said so. And how do we know this?

The climatology scriptures (peer review journals) proved it. If warming skeptics had legitimate claims, so the argument goes, then naturally their arguments and supporting data would appear in such journals – a persuasive argument, ably assisted by the fact that global warming zealots controlled those journals.

Problem is, at least one such peer review journal broke ranks *gasp* and, in Galilean fashion, began publishing articles questioning “The True Faith” of climatology. Heresy!

Climate theory e-mails missing

While some scientists involved in the international scandal now known as "Climategate" have admitted some raw data supporting the man-made global warming theory is now missing, the Penn State professor em-broiled in the controversy said the data in question has nothing to do with any of his work.

But when reached Monday, Penn State meteorology professor Michael Mann was able to offer some explanation as to why the data is now unavailable.

CLIMATEGATE - Al Gore's family linked to corrupt oilman

The Vice President is often presented as a wooden and somewhat simple-minded clone of Mr Clinton. In fact his political background is far more interesting and complex. His political career developed out of that of his father, Senator Al Gore Sr of Tennessee, who gave up his position in 1971 to become head of the coal division of Hammer's oil company Occidental Petroleum. His annual salary was $500,000.

Dec 01 14:20


On April 28 about 100 demonstrators turned up at Occidental's annual meeting in Santa Monica and called on the company to halt the project. Activists have also picketed the offices of Fidelity Investments, which owns about 8 percent of Occidental's shares, and criticized Vice President Al Gore, whose family owns at least a quarter of a million dollars' worth of Occidental stock.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Al Gore may be screaming about (and charging money for) Carbon Credits today, but his family fortune has roots in the oil companies!

Israel did 9/11, ALL THE PROOF IN THE WORLD!!

Figuring out exactly how 9/11 was done is the work of crime investigators or conspiracy hobbyists who will endlessly go on discussing and debating every minuscule and intricate detail of the event to no avail. It doesn’t take a structural engineer to tell you that two 110 story buildings and a 47 story steel skyscraper plummeting to the ground at nearly free-fall speed requires the assistance of explosives. All you need is two eyes that can see and a brain that thinks to come to that sound conclusion. This is why it is of my opinion that more emphasis should be placed on the “who” instead of the “how”. It should be obvious to anyone that discovering ‘who did 9/11? is infinitely more important than discovering how they did it.

The Great and Powerful Climate Oz

ClimateGate -- the controversy surrounding the leaked e-mails from the Climatic Research Unit at Britain's University of East Anglia -- means not only a credibility problem for some of the world's leading climate researchers. It also means a credibility problem for the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, whose latest influential report, known as the AR-4, calls evidence of global warming "unequivocal."

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,

Dec 01 12:52

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.

Climategate: Follow the Money

Consider the case of Phil Jones, the director of the CRU and the man at the heart of climategate. According to one of the documents hacked from his center, between 2000 and 2006 Mr. Jones was the recipient (or co-recipient) of some $19 million worth of research grants, a sixfold increase over what he'd been awarded in the 1990s.

Why did the money pour in so quickly? Because the climate alarm kept ringing so loudly: The louder the alarm, the greater the sums. And who better to ring it than people like Mr. Jones, one of its likeliest beneficiaries?

Climategate --The investigations begin

Penn State University has announced that it has begun an investigation of the work of Michael Mann, the director of its Earth System Science Center, following revelations contained in the Climategate documents that have emerged from East Anglia University in the UK.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Investigation? Look how hard they are already working to bolster Mann's reputation in their official statement!

"Professor Michael Mann is a highly regarded member of the Penn State faculty conducting research on climate change. Professor Mann’s research papers have been published in well respected peer-reviewed scientific journals. In November 2005, Representative Sherwood Boehlert (R-NY) requested that the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) convene a panel of independent experts to investigate Professor Mann’s seminal 1999 reconstruction of the global surface temperature over the past 1,000 years. The resulting 2006 report of the NAS panel (http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=11676) concluded that Mann’s results were sound and has been subsequently supported by an array of evidence that includes additional large-scale surface temperature reconstructions.

"In recent days a lengthy file of emails has been made public. Some of the questions raised through those emails may have been addressed already by the NAS investigation but others may not have been considered. The University is looking into this matter further, following a well defined policy used in such cases. No public discussion of the matter will occur while the University is reviewing the concerns that have been raised."

This is a whitewash right from the start! Penn State will never find fault with Mann because that would endanger all that funding his "research" brought in!

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.'

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.

Faber: “No decent citizen should trust the Federal Reserve for one second. It’s very important that everyone own some gold because the government will make the dollar (in the long term) useless."

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.

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.”

"We believe our concerns and reservations are sufficiently important to warrant a serious review of the science by EPA," the report read.

ClimateGate E-Mails Released by Whistleblower, Not Hacker

The information included e-mails, computer codes, annotations to code and the like. They were all of a part, not rife with "How's the wife?"-type correspondence but apparently the documents responding to a long-frustrated series of requests under the United Kingdom's freedom of information law.

This is only one of numerous factors indicating that the disclosures were not the work of a "hacker," as the media parrot without evidence, but a whistleblower on the inside.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This makes far more sense. As I pointed out when the story first broke, the emails were sent to BBC, which sat on the story for more than a month. At that point the files were posted to a pro-warmist website. Only after the files were erased from that site were the files posted to the Russian server and announced globally.

This is a clear pattern of someone trying to correct the problem from within, first by going to BBC, then posting to the "community" and going fully public only as a last resort.

Hasbara Author vs Iran’s Bomb by Gilad Atzmon

Aaronovitch, who back in 2003 was mobilized by an imaginary threat that was crudely forged by Blair & Co, seems to be shaken again. This time it is the Iranian nuclear threat. “Most experts seem to agree, training the steed is mostly a matter of time.” There is something Aaronovitch is failing to mention. The state that lists him as its ‘Hasbara author’, the state that was recently found complicit in some colossal crimes against humanity, evidently possesses hundreds of nuclear bombs that has kept the entire region in constant red alert for more than four decades. The Jewish state has not signed the non-proliferation treaty and does not let any IAEA inspectors into its nuclear facilities.

CLIMATEGATE - Our Man in Copenhagen: Foreigners to help police UNFCCC summit

Danish media are reporting that foreign police forces will help Denmark with security for the upcoming UN summit in Copenhagen. German police cars will be helping to patrol the streets, and Swedish and Dutch contingents will be coming too.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation - The globalists know we know it is all a lie, but they are going to ram a global tax and global government down our throats and up our asses anyway. They are expecting a riot if not a full blown revolution in Copenhagen.

And when I think of a reason one should not happen, I will get back to you.

Milking the Last Bloody Nickels from Enduring Lies

Obama (rhymes with Osama) is going to send some tens of thousands of new zombies into Afghanistan to protect Bush Senior’s opium crops and secure necessary transit lines and resources for that percentage of the world that uses far more than it needs to live at a higher standard than those they are stealing from. He’s also going to Copenhagen to shill for a major criminal enterprise, whose intention is yet another unbearable tax upon the backs of humanity, as well as to secure the financing to operate a world-wide, fascist governing body.

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.

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!

Supreme Court decision lets Pentagon keep detainee photos secret

The Supreme Court Monday threw out a federal appeals court ruling requiring the release of photos that allegedly show abuse of US-held detainees in Iraq and Afghanistan. The court cited a new law that allows the Defense Secretary to withhold such photos.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unflipping believable.

Because unless and until those who ordered the torture are prosecuted within the fullest extent of US law, this country's leadership has morally fallen off a cliff, and made clear to the world that they have absolutely no pretense of observing human rights of US-held prisoners under the provisions Geneva Accords.

In fact, President Obama, why not hold a press conference in the Rose Garden, and just torch the document in front of everyone, so there is absolutely no question of what will happen to any future POWS held by the US?

Of course, giving the US "alphabet soup agencies" and the military the right to torture (which we know only leads to those tortured telling their torturers precisely what they want to hear) gives other nations carte blanche to do the same to those Americans in their custody.

Chew on that one for a while, Mr. President.

We cannot, as a people or a nation, talk about human rights, human dignity or democracy to the world with a straight face when we torture, period, end of discussion.

Arming Goldman With Pistols Against Public

banker who applied to the local police for a permit to buy a pistol. The banker had told this friend of mine that senior Goldman people have loaded up on firearms and are now equipped to defend themselves if there is a populist uprising against the bank.

I called Goldman Sachs spokesman Lucas van Praag to ask whether it’s true that Goldman partners feel they need handguns to protect themselves from the angry proletariat. He didn’t call me back. The New York Police Department has told me that “as a preliminary matter” it believes some of the bankers I inquired about do have pistol permits.

The crazy, irrational beliefs of Muslims

Tom Friedman can declare with a straight face that "anyone who shoots up innocent people is ... mentally imbalanced" without seeing how clearly that applies to himself and those who think like he does. It's that self-absorbed disconnect -- seeing Hasan's murder of American soldiers as an act of consummate evil and sickness while refusing to see our own acts in a similar light -- that shapes most of our warped political discourse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My mother-in-=law holds the same beliefs; that it is okay for us to do it to Muslims because we are Americans and they are Muslims, but it is NOT okay for them to fight back because "They just hate us."

US bid to bypass Karzai's Afghan government upsets allies

The US is seeking to extend its control over the day-to-day running of Afghanistan with the appointment of an international "high representative" in Kabul in an attempt to bypass Hamid Karzai's much-criticised government.

The initiative, being pushed by the US special envoy, Richard Holbrooke, has caused a split between Washington and its closest Nato allies, who believe it could further undermine the Afghan president's legitimacy and the United Nations' role in the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'd laugh, but this is deadly serious.

Whoever gets stuck with the job had better well have numerous sets of Kevlar clothing handy, because people who get in Karzai's face can find themselves "assuming room temperature" in a heartbeat.

And a short memo to the US, UN, and NATO; there is absolutely no problem about such a measure further undermining Karzai's legitimacy, because he has none!!

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.

Iran to deal 'firmly' if yacht Britons found guilty

The five were sailing from Bahrain to the start of a race in the emirate of Dubai when their yacht, "The Kingdom of Bahrain," was stopped last Wednesday in the Gulf, the Foreign Office said.

They are believed to have been intercepted near the Iranian-controlled island of Abu Musa, whose ownership is disputed by Iran and the United Arab Emirates, a Bahraini interior ministry source told AFP.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm sorry, but with modern GPS equipment and maps, the only excuse for getting that close to Iranian waters has to fall under one of two categories, and there is no middle ground here.

We're either looking at acute stupidity (unusual for experienced yachtsmen) or an attempt at creating a deliberate provocation.

COBRA subsidies begin expiring for the unemployed

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, passed in February, launched a temporary government program to subsidize the often crippling cost of buying health insurance through a former employer's plan after a layoff.

However, the so-called COBRA subsidy was designed to last no more than nine months for each person who was unemployed. Hundreds of thousands who got this subsidy when it was first made available in March are slated to roll off the program today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's bad enough that the COBRA plan is ending;but what's worse is that the people it has been covering haven't been able to find a job with insurance benefits in 9 months, because the job market is still so horrendous.

Climategate claims its first big political scalp

Australian conservatives have shown the way by dumping the party leader who was in favour of massive carbon taxes and replacing him with one who stated last month that AGW is “crap.”

And his replacement Tony Abbott, the first politician to reap the benefits of the world’s growing scepticism towards ManBearPig. Of the three candidates, he was the only one committed to delaying the Australian government’s proposed Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).

The states also have a piece of the action, with California—apparently not feeling bankrupt enough—devoting $600 million to their own climate initiative. In Australia, alarmists have their own Department of Climate Change at their funding disposal.

Obama orders 30-35,000 more troops for Afghanistan, surge to begin by Christmas

After months of debate, President Barack Obama will spell out a costly Afghanistan war expansion to a skeptical public Tuesday night, coupling an infusion of as many as 35,000 more troops with a vow that there will be no endless U.S. commitment. His first orders have already been made: at least one group of Marines who will be in place by Christmas.

Obama has said that he prefers "not to hand off anything to the next president" and that his strategy will "put us on a path toward ending the war." But he doesn't plan to give any more exact timetable than that Tuesday night.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not want to have one more of my tax dollars spent on a war for corporate profit. I do not want to see one more of our fine US soldiers get killed or maimed for life in the name of corporate profit.

The outcomesof the invasion and Afghanistan were to have been;

1. To install the pipelines to control Eurasian oil (a goal the US/NATO occupation is not anywhere near accomplishing).

2. To control the drug trade, from which so many profit so handsomely. And if you are screaming "no, this couldn't possibly be", and just about to throw your computer at the wall for such a suggestion, please, sit down, take a deep breath, and look at the facts.

Under the rule of the Taliban, the cultivation of opium poppies had nearly disappeared. After the invasion and occupation by US/NATO forces, opium production has soared.

As reported on 3 September, 2006, in


"Helmand province has seen a 162 % increase in opium production over last year. This province has also seen significant attacks on British troops and NATO forces this past year. The narco-economy is threatening to turn the state into a Narco state with the complete collapse of the democratic reforms initiated by the western allies."

Any questions?

The people of Afghanistan pose absolutely no threat to US national security; they just happen to be cursed to live at a geographic spot that would be great for pipelines, and the ideal weather conditions for growing opium.

They simply want us out of their country, period, end of discussion.

Any new "surge" in Afghanistan will be met by an equal - or better "surge" of Taliban fighters, which will then cause the US military to ask for more troops which will....

You get my point.

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.

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.

The Economics of Climate Change

To keep this money flowing, climate scientists needed to keep the fear going. Anything that called into question their most dire predictions of climate catastrophe would put all that funding at risk. On the other hand, the bigger the climate calamity, the more willing governments became to fund global-warming research. Keeping the dissenters on the outside was not simply a matter of academic jealousy. It was in many cases a question of professional survival.

In this turmoil, it may seem hard to imagine a financial market poised to deliver significant growth.

According to financial experts, carbon permits could quickly become the world's largest commodities market, growing to as much as $3 trillion by 2020 from just over $100 billion today. With thousands of firms and energy producers buying and selling permits to emit carbon, transaction fees for exchanges and clearing alone could top nearly half a billion dollars.

More on Climategate

In my previous post on Climategate I blithely said that nothing in the climate science email dump surprised me much. Having waded more deeply over the weekend I take that back.

The closed-mindedness of these supposed men of science, their willingness to go to any lengths to defend a preconceived message, is surprising even to me. The stink of intellectual corruption is overpowering. And, as Christopher Booker argues, this scandal is not at the margins of the politicised IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] process. It is not tangential to the policy prescriptions emanating from what David Henderson called the environmental policy milieu [subscription required]. It goes to the core of that process.

Global warming? Don't wait up! The Earth has her own tricks to keep the carbon count in control

Perhaps it is comforting to believe that science is an absolute discipline: immune from fads, fanatics and frauds, untroubled by extremists, evangelists, glory-seekers and bigots. But it is not. It is as vulnerable to the vested interests and biases of its practitioners as any corporate entity or political party.

Uncomfortable truths are suppressed and dubious evidence given undue prominence.

Nowhere is this more worryingly obvious than in the science of climate change. As a field of research it has become so heavily politicised that opposing views are spoken of in terms of religion: believers and non-believers, with the accent being on the righteousness of the former and the benighted state of the latter.

CLIMATEGATE - Climate scientists: Dog ate homework

In the latest shocking development in climategate, scientists at the world's leading research facility studying climate change have admitted they threw out much of the raw temperature data on which they built their theory of man-made global warming.

The revelation in yesterday's London Sunday Times, reported by environment editor Jonathan Leake, means the original work that led to modern climate change theory developed at the now under fire Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the U.K.'s University of East Anglia, cannot be independently verified by other academics, critical of CRU's methods.

They allege CRU manipulated data to exaggerate global warming, which it attributes to mankind's burning of fossil fuels.

CLIMATEGATE - Climate Conspiracy

Broadly speaking, this scandal will alter the burden of proof. From this point on, proponents of global warming theory will receive no benefit of the doubt. Wanton extrapolations, reliance on models in which data can be endlessly readjusted to fit the thesis, and attempts to stigmatize critics as scientifically illiterate will have to stop. Ad hominem attacks on critics suggesting that they are in the hire of “big oil” or other interests will be seen for the shabby evasions they always were. Let’s hope that the result of this scandal is a restoration of principled inquiry to an important public policy debate.

CLIMATEGATE - Geologist 'appalled' at NYT's Krugman: 'Legitimate scientists do not doctor data...hijack peer-review...send fraudulent data to UN that is used to perpetuate greatest hoax in the history of science'

Legitimate scientists do not 'provide false data to further legislation on climate change that will result in huge profits for corrupt lobbyists and politicians'

CLIMATEGATE - A betrayal of science - and of you

The now non-secret data prove what many of us had only strongly suspected — that most of the evidence of global warming was simply made up. That is, not only are the global warming computer models unreliable, the experimental data upon which these models are built are also unreliable. As Lord Monckton has emphasized here at Pajamas Media, this deliberate destruction of data and the making up of data out of whole cloth is the real crime — the real story of Climategate.

It is an act of treason against science. It is also an act of treason against humanity, since it has been used to justify an attempt to destroy the world economy.

MOST of the world's population will be wiped out if political leaders fail to agree a method of stopping current rates of global warming, one of the UK's most senior climate scientists has warned.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yep, when they start saying most of you will die if you do not do as you are told, it reeks of panic in the warmist camp.

Vincent Gray on Climategate: ‘There Was Proof of Fraud All Along’

Nothing about the revelations surprises me. I have maintained email correspondence with most of these scientists for many years, and I know several personally. I long ago realized that they were faking the whole exercise.

Climategate Story....Not Going Away

Dear Main Stream Media,

We know you are doing your best to cover this up. It is understandable, but very immoral. Instead of focusing on one of the biggest scientific scandals ever, and identifying the real scoundrels involved, you have given in to both corporate and governmental pressure. A lot of big companies pay you a great deal of money to advertise their products and they really want to continue the lies about the existence of global warming that they have helped perpetuate. Governments have their own shady agendas.

What you must understand is that WE THE PEOPLE are not letting this go! We will get the word out and we will make sure the truth is told, even if you stopped doing that long ago.

David Archibald on Climategate

As the Climategate emails show, the warmers captured the whole system – all the journals, all their editors and the journals’ boards. They successfully removed inconvenient editors. As a last line of defence, they were going to change the definition of what peer review meant. Making the system more prescriptive will simply entrench the corrupted establishment ...

ClimateGate scandal demonstrates intellectual protectionism of modern scientists

The inconvenient release of private email conversations among climate change scientists has been a boon for climate change skeptics. What emerges from the leaked emails is a depiction of a group of scientists who practice “intellectual protectionism” — meaning they know they’re right and they’ll do anything to protect their beliefs, even if it means hiding or manipulating data.

Sound familiar? Scientists in the pharmaceutical industry have been practicing this for decades. If you think the ClimateGate emails are revealing, just imagine what kind of similar emails are flying around between Big Pharma scientists who routinely manipulate study data and commit scientific fraud in the name of medicine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not in the name of medicine, in the name of profits! Same motive as Climategate!

Crops under stress as temperatures fall

For the second time in little over a year, it looks as though the world may be heading for a serious food crisis, thanks to our old friend "climate change". In many parts of the world recently the weather has not been too brilliant for farmers. After a fearsomely cold winter, June brought heavy snowfall across large parts of western Canada and the northern states of the American Midwest. In Manitoba last week, it was -4ºC. North Dakota had its first June snow for 60 years.

Climategate: The Fallout Continues from CRU Hacking

The big issue: Just how reliable is the information that is at the heart of the climate center’s conclusions about global temperature trends? The CRU, for its part, stresses that
“our conclusions correlate well to those of other scientists based on the separate data sets held by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS).”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have four sets of data that match, and one is a proven fake, then they are all fake.

Iran: UN Criticism Prompted New Nuclear Plans

Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi told state radio that Iran's decision to build 10 new uranium enrichment facilities was necessary to respond to the International Atomic Energy Agency's resolution Friday demanding that Iran halt all enrichment activities.

The bold announcement appears to be largely bluster: Any new plants would take years to build and stock with centrifuges, if Iran can even afford it or obtain the materials while under U.N. sanctions. But the ambitious plans demonstrates Tehran's anger over the IAEA rebuke and its refusal to back down in the standoff despite sanctions threats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Everyone is talking about the "Deal" being offered Iran, but what nobody will mention is that there is already a deal in place and agreed to, called the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Iran has been keeping to the requirements of the NNPT.
The United States, in calling for Iran to surrender their rights under the NNPT, is the party in violation of the existing agreement.

Iran's refusal to come to a new agreement is rooted firmly in the US failure to abide by the existing agreement.

FBI viewed intel provided by ultra-right radio host Hal Turner as ‘irreplaceable’

Writing for NorthJersey.com, reporters Mike Kelly and Peter J. Sampson reveal that the bureau once even used Turner as an undercover intelligence operative in Brazil, where he informed on white supremacist group American National Alliance and met with a representative of the Brazilian Arab Society who sought to provide support to Iraqi fighters.

According to documents reviewed for the report, Turner's FBI codename was "Valhalla," which he sometimes wrote on the memo line of the checks the agency sent him.

Has Israel Been Spying On The United Nations?

A Swiss newspaper said that a number of UN employees in Geneva have concluded that Israel is eavesdropping on UN court sessions. The Neue Zuericher Zeitung (NZZ) added that bugging devices have been found in the organization’s deliberations room in the Swiss capital.

The newspaper pointed that during regular maintenance procedures on the electrical network, three years ago, two bugging devices were found in a room set for the UN Disarmament Committee meetings. It added that ‘secret’ meetings were also held in the room over the Second Gulf War and the assassination of former Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri. NZZ revealed that other spying devices have also been found in other parts of the building, including courtrooms.
