From the December 2009 Idaho Observer:
Climategate: an inconvenient whistle blower strikes again
by Patricia Aiken
Tonight’s weather forecast predicts minus 2 to minus 7 degrees Fahrenheit here in North Idaho. It’s not much of a stretch to see man-made global warming as a hoax. Quickly dubbed “ClimateGate”, emails and computer programs taken from a main server at the Climate Research Unit of the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom were leaked. It’s still unclear if this was theft by a hacker or the actions of a whistleblower, disgusted with what the lead scientists at CRU were doing. Information Technology types are leaning towards whistleblower.
ClimateGate exposes the cabal of 20 – 30 scientists (not just at CRU) instructing each other to delete emails, data files, and data analysis programs ahead of already filed Freedom of Information Act requests for raw data and computer codes, clearly a crime. This small group has been adding positive corrections to the raw global temperature data, inflating the amount of published temperature rise over the last 50 years, aided and abetted by the lame stream media. If your accountant did these types of “corrections”, you’d both be in prison.
With so much riding on Global Warming as a huge plank of the Global Governance platform, these Enviro-Liars aren’t letting truth and emails get in their way. Media whores are ratcheting up the shrill warnings in an attempt to drown out the devastating scandal. On Dec. 7 The Guardian writes “Today 56 newspapers in 45 countries take the unprecedented step of speaking with one voice through a common editorial. We do so because humanity faces a profound emergency.
“Unless we combine to take decisive action, climate change will ravage our planet, and with it our prosperity and security. The dangers have been becoming apparent for a generation. Now the facts have started to speak: 11 of the past 14 years have been the warmest on record, the Arctic ice-cap is melting and last year’s inflamed oil and food prices provide a foretaste of future havoc. In scientific journals the question is no longer whether humans are to blame, but how little time we have got left to limit the damage. Yet so far the world’s response has been feeble and half-hearted.” And on and on it goes.
True global warming believers take solace in editorials like these and the rampant blogs abounding with confirmations and consolations that the liars, um, scientists just went overboard trying to sound the global warming alarm. It’s because the pesky humans that are creating this catastrophic meltdown aren’t listening. Listen up, give away what shards are left of your freedom and there may be time to avert this disaster. And Pay No Attention To That Man Behind the Curtain.
One of the Climategate emails shows what a quandary this posed for scientist Kevin Trenberth: “The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t. The CERES data published in the August Bulletin of American Meteorological Society 09 supplement on 2008 shows there should be even more warming: but the data are surely wrong. Our observing system is inadequate.” Ah, that’s it. The problem is with the data not the theory. Usually, when data doesn’t match a theory, it means the theory is false. But with the ClimateGate scientists, it’s the other way around. Another email showed in detail how a scientist wants to change the data.
ClimateGate couldn’t come at a better or worse time, depending on where you sit on the issue. With Copenhagen rolling out the red carpet for environMENTAL scientists this month, will ClimateGate force the “journalists” to do some real investigation and ask any awkward questions? Not likely. It may provide a bump in the road of world consciousness that will slow down the treaty they’re looking to ratify, but it’s doubtful that it will stop it entirely.
The ClimateGate emails clearly illustrate how big oil money is behind the climate change alarmists, not the skeptics. Indeed, the entire Copenhagen event is sponsored by a consortium of giant corporations that includes British Petroleum and Shell Oil.
In a recent article, PrisonPlanet.com’s, Paul Joseph Watson describes groups of green youth corps agitators that invaded the stage during Lord Christopher Monckton’s speech at an Americans for Prosperity event in Copenhagen Dec. 9. In an attempt to sabotage the private meeting while chanting cult-like environmental mantras is a shocking example of how the environmentalist elite have activated cadres of youth to crush the free speech of anyone who dares dissent against the global warming orthodoxy. The “activists,” who were invited delegates to the UN’s Copenhagen summit, betray the dictatorial agenda of the United Nations and the climate change movement as a whole by having zero tolerance for any dissenting opinion. The Green Youth crashed and shouted down a small conference of people who had merely gathered to present the other side of the debate. This barely raised an eyebrow from event security.
Contrast what happened to Members of Press For Truth who handed out flyers outside an Al Gore event in Toronto. The group was harassed by security guards, assaulted, had their camera equipment attacked, and were almost shoved into the road by thought police thugs hell-bent on making them leave areas that were not even privately owned.
Although the Green Youth Corps may be humor impaired at this juncture, Minnesotans For Global Warming are not. M4GW announces their new Christmas album A ClimateGate Christmas. They admit there is no actual album, just the commercial. Familiar holiday tunes don pithy lyrics such as “Oh ClimateGate Oh ClimateGate those hacked emails have sealed your fate.” “Don’t sign your name at Copenhagen Falalalalalalalala, I Can’t Cope With All this Changin’ Falalalalalalalala” Even a medley is included-“Joy to the world Al Gore is come, Let earth receive her king. Away in a prison a cot for a bed…” [http://minnesotansforglobalwarming.com]
All in favor of a little global warming, raise your mittens.
