    Disturbing on multiple levels.

    Let’s have an open, clear, and multi-faceted debate on global warming. Let’s make sure we hear the evidence – all the evidence – before rushing to predetermined conclusions. After all, isn’t that the scientific method???

      I am tired of fair and open debate on this issue. The whole thing has been exposed a fraud. There is no reason to continue to be fair to the Bernie Madoffs of climate “science”.

      Eric:

      It has indeed been proven to be a hoax.

        I think Eric was being sarcastic. That’s what the “warmers” always say, “Open, clear, Multi-faceted…..blah,blah,blah”. This proves they have been lying the entire time. Yes, he was being sarcastic or extremely naive.

        I just got the latest of Lord Monckton’s monthly CO2 reports, just published today.

        Anyone wanting to learn more about the science behind the hoax should check it out:

    Probably one of the toughest things for an American to do anymore is to determine who the hell is lying, but lately it has become evident. It’s about time main-stream media stops campaigning and starts reporting the facts.

    What a wonderful day for humanity !

    The hoax is over, the kids can go back to playing and stop worrying about the polar bears and the criminals who brought this scam upon the world will now be put on trial. The “green” movement was hijacked by socialist progressives and used as a weapon to scare the world into their “vision” of behavior and tax us into oblivion. Now it is over and the revolt back to common sense is on ! Yeah !!

    With all the time, money and effort wasted on AGW, we could have really done some good in the world. Wake-up everyone, time to use that energy on real problems…

      Don’t get too excited. The DB in chief just announced in India that we need a global climate change treaty in Copenhagen. Just proves one thing, “O”‘s agenda is more important than facts or crappy piece of 200 year old parchment. You people had better be willing to deal with this properly, they’re playing for keeps.

    These scientists withheld their data from others because they knew it wouldn’t hold up to scrutiny. Scientists are supposed to allow others to replicate their results. Those who attempt to squelch replication of their results by withholding their data are not practicing science. These were the top names in the field. So there will be no “open debate” with a bunch of liars and charlatans. And “peer review” didn’t prevent it.

      And $50 Billion dollars of taxpayer money in several countries just went down the drain !!!

      I think every one of the people involved in this farce should be prosecuted, and the first one should be the Goracle himself, who should be charged with attempt to defraud on a never before seen scale.

      They should put the lying POS in a cell next to Bernie Madoffs, for the rest of his pathetic life.

    From the outset it was obvious that “global warming” nee “climate change” was a hoax…it is truly amazing and alarming that it has taken so long to produce evidence of that fact…and even more alarming and amazing that the MSM and the public will probably not grasp the fact for some time.

      August;

      Just a point of clarification if I may:

      Global warming was indeed happening.. Part of the earth’s normal climate change patterns…

      There were 2 major elements of the HOAX:

      1: That man was responsible for it with increased CO2 emissions. CO2 is plant food, it’s GOOD for the earth not harmful in any way.

      2: Perhaps the most outrageous part of the hoax however, is that”Cooling” is bad, and “Warming” is good. All life on earth flourishes as the climate warms. During the Medieval Warm Period, the earth was on average ℃ 3.5 warmer than we were at the peal of our recent warming period, and during that time, there with thriving vineyards in northern Scotland.

      In 982 AD, the Viking Explorer “Eric the Red” discovered a huge island (the biggest on earth in fact) and named it after it’s lush green forests and meadows…. “Greenland” The earth was just entering the Medieval Warm Period.. so all the tales of the cataclysmic horrors we were about the face were pure LIES…

      BTW: Obama’s science czar Eric Holdren should be second after the Goracle, on the guillotine. This man is evil incarnate. Read more about him at this excellent article:

      Harmon;

      Look at the source, MSN.. add two more letters (BC) and you know it’s nonsense.

      One of the cycles that the earth has been going through for millions of years, is that when one pole starts to lose its ice, the other tends to gain ice.

      It’s true that the Arctic has been losing ice steadily ever since we started to come out of the little ice age about 150 years ago…

      It is however, a well documented fact that the Antarctic ice has been growing at a steady rate for years.

      As to the reason for the icebergs appearing near New Zealand, I’ll make a wild asses guess that with the ice sheet in Antarctica having been growing at such a high rate, maybe there’s simply more ice breaking off around the edges into the sea.

      It’s springtime down under, & that’s when ice begins to melt and break off, on both poles… every year!

      I’m going to check with the experts on this & will get back to you with a better answer real soon.

    Harmon, that west Antarctica has been warming is not in dispute. It is not evidence of anthropogenic global warming whatsoever.

    No one is asking the real question: “Who put them up to this?”

    I mean, what’s in it for these guys who perpetuated this fraud, and just who put them up to this?

    It’s difficult to believe that this all these guys one day woke up and said to themselves: “Hey, I feel like committing a most vicious fraud upon the world, one that’ll cost billions of dollars and kills millions of people because of my misguidance, a fraud that could potentially collapse the world economy. Yeah, that’s what I want to do today, I wonder if anyone else wants to help?”

    We know why Gore did it, he turned $1.5million into $15million in a few short years, but what about these scientists?

    • November 24, 2009 5:56 am

      Multi- governments’ grants, research monies et al have created secure, long term careers for scientists who would otherwise have had to get real jobs. They have simply cashed in on the current fads and indulged in self congratulations as ‘saviors of the planet’. Not all climate scientists are charlatans; one or two are only misguided.

      • Swemson permalink
        November 24, 2009 1:53 pm

        Actually a great many of them are legit…

        One big element in Gore’s lies was that nonsense about the consensus of the 2,500 scientists on the IPCC staff…

        Very few of them were actually scientists, and all the good ones resigned after they saw what a scam they were being asked to endorse.

        Here’s the truth about the consensus of scientists, but like everything else the Goracle said, the truth is 108 degrees from his absurd lies:

        http://www.petitionproject.org/

        DOn’t forget, they had the media and the ecological extremists behind them, and the truth about the green movement is simply and elegantly explained by Lord Monckton, with his “traffic light” tendency: (the traffic light’s upside down BYW)

    • Lee Scott permalink
      November 24, 2009 8:47 am

      In addition to getting the grants, prestige and career promotion for furthering the scam, most of these climate scientists are also fervent environmentalists, and would love to see the level of industrial activity and human population on the earth go back to where it was in 1790. That idea, however, just doesn’t sell real well all by itself. AGW was the eureka moment they had when they realized that if the earth was warming, as it seemed it was in the 1980’s, and if they could sell the idea that it was caused by CO2, that many of their social and political goals were finally within reach. So, they’ve got both a financial and an ideological motivation for doing it. I think maybe 10% are actually involved in perpetrating the fraud, the other 90% are merely misguided idealists who have swallowed it hook, line and sinker.

      Once they started publishing this crap and got awards, plaudits, the ear of the international governments, and grants up the wazoo, there was no turning back. And they probably began to believe their own data out of self-preservation.

    This isn’t the end of the Global Warming power play. Certain participants will be thrown under the bus but the movement will continue. Their argument, like that of the “Bush was a draft dodger” gang, will be that the data are “fake, but accurate”. Dan Rather got to see tire prints all over his body but the mainstream media didn’t miss a beat in attacking Bush.

    Likewise, you will see Phil Jones and probably Caspar Ammann, Kevin Trenberth and maybe even Michael Mann get their walking papers but on the back side of those papers will be maps to well paying, although very obscure, jobs within the AGW movement.

    This is not a victory, merely a breach in the AGW cult’s defenses. It will be necessary to send a major expeditionary force through that breach and finish off the big players like NASA’s James Hansen and science fuhrer John Holdren. That will take more than the discovery of a few suspicious emails and some hidden data. It will take an overwhelming amount of solid science demonstrating that AGW is wildly exaggerated.

    Scandal is never enough to take down a cult movement of this kind. True believers will never change their thinking. They have to be culled from the herd of innocent dupes. This can accomplished by showing the true believers to be crackpots with less evidence for their beliefs than there is for gremlins, fairies or UFOs.

      There will be scientists more than happy to do this job. This is a golden opportunity. The granting agencies, however, will have to lurch around and be willing to give money to these proposals. Right now they’re probably still in AGW mode.

    I doubt that Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, Mussolini. Mugabee or Obama woke up one morning and said, gee, I want to become a dictator, kill millions of people, and get filthy rich.

    But that is what happened except it has yet to occur with Obama. But it will.

    • JamesB permalink

      Elaine B – Actually that did happen to Hitler and then he wrote a book about it, “Mein Kampf”.

      It wouldn’t surprise me that Stalin, et al had a similar moment where they made that decision as well. You’re making the mistake of thinking that killing millions would be a repugnant idea to men like that, but history shows they embraced their roles.

      Someone pointed out that many of these guys are enviromentalists, so I could see where they might embrace their roles in this fraud. And history has certainly shown that these AGW guys DID embraced their roles…

    Folks, don’t close the book on the global warming farce prematurely. I can assure you that this is a highest priority of Obama, his gestapo science czar Holdren and the host of those that will make hundreds of billions if not trillions of bucks off this sham and tax fraud. The operative words are control and the extreme redistribution of wealth. Like the sharks that take your money in 3 card monty these liars and deceivers will switch gears and divert the truth by deceit and forced compliance. It’s going to get ugly very fast with Obama and his imperative to enforce his communist ideals. You and I are just in the way of “change” and should expect the rapid shut down of free speech and his administration charges headlong into the full blown elimination of our rights.You already know that Obama is shocked at the response against him and his administration and never expected such a showing of anger from ordinary Americans.Our uproar at this hoax and other aspects that this administration are attempting to install must be spoken against, loud and clear. Speak without fear.

      Peachy;

      You see the future through a very objective lens…

      Obama’s science czar John Holdren will never give up on his quest: The following is from an article about him from WorldNetDaily:

      What is clear from the record going back over nearly four decades is that White House science czar John Holdren is a climate alarmist, even if he can’t make up his mind whether the crisis is the Earth warming up or cooling down.

      But long before Holdren was the global warming Cassandra he is today, he was a global cooling alarmist predicting a new ice age.

      The only consistency seems to be that Holdren has always utilized climate hysteria to argue that government must mandate public policy measures to prevent imminent and otherwise unavoidable climate catastrophes.

      In the 1970s, Holdren’s theme was that government-mandated population control was essential to prevent “eco-disasters” such as the foreseen coming new ice age; today Holdren urges immediate passage of the Obama administration’s proposed cap-and-trade legislation to control carbon emissions before it is too late to save the planet from global warming.

      I just heard from Bob Ferguson, the president of SPPI, who predicted that the overall problem isn’t going to just go away… he said he suspected that there will be new scares, including ocean acidification, and species extinction. He also said that the old scare about mercury poisoning may well be resurrected.

      The only way we’ll stop this nonsense for sure, is if we can get control of government back, and then prosecute these liars and frauds… I’ll feel safe from Holdren only after he’s locked away in a padded cell.. Here’s a perverse thought, a variation on the theme of Sartre’s “No Exit”.. We lock Madoff, Gore and Holdren up in a small room for all of eternity.

    I agree with Dr. Timothy Ball, a Canadian climatologist that often rebuts the “Warmers”, that this is not a hoax but an out in out fraud. A hoax amounts to more or less an elaborate prank to get peoples attention and have a laugh at their expense. On the other hand a fraud is a deception acted apron for the purpose of personal gain.
    I thought that it was interesting that one of the conspirators in these emails was the director of the “Climate Studies Unit” at the University of East Anglia by the name of Phil Jones. I wonder if he is of any relation to the late James Warren Jones, former head of “The People’s Temple”? It seems that if you were to keep up with either one of these Joneses that you would do so at your own peril.

      Fritz;

      As Lord Monckton pointed out quite clearly during his recent appearance on Glenn Beck’s show, the real purpose behind this entire scheme was to create a crisis that would help progressive world leaders to set up a single Global Government. Global warming was to deliver the crisis that would give them justification to impose a totally new and draconian energy tax upon us. The sub-plot of course, was an attempt to keep the 3rd world from exploiting its own natural resources. Once again, the leftists / progressives, show their true colors, in doing whatever they can to keep the poor the way they are….

      The Beck show is still available in 5 parts on You Tube. Here’s the first part which has links to consecutive parts.

    With regards to personal gain I was speaking more in terms of the scientists and their research grants, along with the carbon credit hustlers like Algore. I am well aware of the machinations of the Neo/EcoMarxists and of their designs on the world, I heard the audio of one of Lord Monckton’s speeches on the Mark Levin radio program, the Copenhagen treaty has to be exposed and stopped ASAP, it’s a menace. Ironically two of the staunchest opponents of such schemes are Russia, and Red China, they don’t care what the US or other countries do but more then once they have told the international EcoMarxists to mind their own business when it comes to their own economic development.

    Climategate Foretold…
    “• What is the current scientific consensus on the conclusions reached by Drs. Mann, Bradley and Hughes? [Referring to the hockey stick propagated in UN IPCC 2001 by Michael Mann.]
    Ans: Based on the literature we have reviewed, there is no overarching consensus on MBH98/99. As analyzed in our social network, there is a tightly knit group of individuals who passionately believe in their thesis. However, our perception is that this group has a self-reinforcing feedback mechanism and, moreover, the work has been sufficiently politicized that they can hardly reassess their public positions without losing credibility.”
    AD HOC COMMITTEE REPORT ON THE ‘HOCKEY STICK’ GLOBAL CLIMATE RECONSTRUCTION, also known as The Wegman report was authored by Edward J. Wegman, George Mason University, David W. Scott, Rice University, and Yasmin H. Said, The Johns Hopkins University with the contributions of John T. Rigsby, III, Naval Surface Warfare Center, and Denise M. Reeves, MITRE Corporation.
