Global Warming Meltdown: Climategate!


By Alan Caruba

For those of us “skeptics” and “deniers” who have been jumping up and down, pointing at the Sun, and saying, “See, it’s the Sun that determines how warm or cool the Earth is. See it? Up there in the sky?” The truth about some of the scientists behind the global warming hoax has finally arrived.

The hoax has its roots in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), an instrument of the United Nations Environmental Program, for whom global warming was the open sesame to achieving a one-world-government by scaring nations into signing a treaty that would control their use of energy, the means of producing it, and require vast billions to be sent to less developed nations in exchange for “emitting” greenhouse gases.

Energy is called “the master resource” because, if you have lots of it, you can call your own shots. If you don’t, you are condemned to live in the dark and keeping people in the dark about the global warming hoax was essential.

For years the IPCC has been controlled by a handful of the worst liars in the world, utterly devoted to taking actual climate data and twisting it to confirm the assertion that the Earth was not only warming dramatically, but that humanity was in peril of rising oceans, melting glaciers and polar ice caps, more hurricanes, the die-off of countless animal species, and every other calamity that could possibly be attributed to “global warming”, including acne.

So, around November 20, when some enterprising individual hacked into the computers of the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU), making off with thousands of emails and documents that demonstrate the level of collusion and deception being practiced by its scientists.

It’s a climate hoax expose that some are calling the revelations a “little blue dress” while others are comparing it to the Pentagon Papers. It has also been dubbed “climategate.”

As James Delingpole wrote in the Telegraph, one of England’s leading newspapers, “Conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organized resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more” was revealed in the 61 megabites of confidential files released on the Internet for anyone to read.

The conspirators had a visceral hatred for scientists who challenged their phony statistics and climate data, but they also agonized over the difficulties of hiding a long established climate cycle such as the Medieval Warm Period. At one point it was left out of a graph that famously became known as “the hockey stick” because it depicted a ludicrous sudden rise in warming, ignoring the previous natural cycle.

At the heart of the revelations were the intense efforts to ensure that no legitimate scientist, particularly those dissenting from the various IPCC reports, would be allowed to participate in the peer review process. Peer review is an essential element in science as it permits other scientists to examine and test the data being put forth to substantiate a new interpretation or discovery.

The IPCC reports were the basis by which popular media such as National Geographic, Time and Newsweek magazines could spread the lies about a dramatic “global warming”, passing them off to an unsuspecting and scientifically illiterate general public. At the same time, the lies were integrated them into school curriculums and maintained by Hollywood celebrities, politicians and others, duped or deliberately ignorant.

To this day, otherwise legitimate news media outlets continue to trumpet and repeat absolute nonsense about “global warming” like brain-dead parrots.

Now that Hadley CRU and its conspirators have been exposed, there truly is no need to hold a December UN climate change conference in Copenhagen; one in which nations would be required to put limits on “greenhouse gas emissions” even though such gases, primarily carbon dioxide, have nothing to do with altering the Earth’s climate.

And that is why you are going to hear more about “climate change” and far less about “global warming.” Hidden in such discussions, intended to justify legislation and regulation, is that the Earth’s climate has always and will always change.

It is, for example, shameful and deceitful for the EPA to claim carbon dioxide is a “pollutant” that should be regulated. The same applies to “cap-and-trade” legislation with the same purpose.

Billions of taxpayer dollars have been wasted on studies of global warming and poured into agencies such as NASA that have lent credence to the global warming hoax.

“The U.S. taxpayer has much exposure here in the joint projects and collaborations which operated in reliance upon what the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit was doing,” says Christopher C. Horner, a longtime global warming skeptic. “There are U.S. taxpayer-funded offices and individuals involved in the machinations addressed in the emails, and in the emails themselves.”

Horner, the author of “Red Hot Lies”, said that the initial revelations “give the appearance of a conspiracy to defraud, by parties working in taxpayer funded agencies collaborating on ways to misrepresent material on which an awful lot of taxpayer money rides.”

The climate, defined as long term trends, and the weather has nothing whatever to do with human activity and suggesting it does reveals the depth of contempt that people like Al Gore and his ilk have for humanity and those fleeced by purchasing “carbon credits” or paying more for electricity when their utility does.

The East Anglia CRU charlatans have been exposed. Most certainly, the United Nations IPCC should be disbanded in disgrace. It belongs in a museum of hoaxes right beside the Piltdown Man and the Loch Ness Monster.

Hi. Alan. It's a happy day indeed; however, we have a long fight ahead of us. I will fight to end no matter what and I needed this news to lift my fighting spirit up a little bit. Lately, all I've been noticing is the NWO mowing over us like a steam roller. Hopefully, this will upset their Agenda big time! Thank God for hackers.

Outstanding piece, and outstanding news. Here's hoping that whoever the hacker is he's conversant with what James O'Keefe, Hannah Giles and Andrew Breitbart did to ACORN. Hopefully there's more out there than was contained in last week's data dump and the hacker will be able to drip-drip-drip bombshells on a continuous basis to keep the story alive in the worldwide media. That's the only way to overcome the wall of smog the leftist elites have thrown around the truth.

All of the average global temperatures for the entire 20th century and so far in the 21st century are readily and accurately determined with no consideration whatsoever needed of changes to the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide or any other greenhouse gas.

Data sources, an eye-opening graph that overlays the measured and calculated temperatures from 1880 to 2008 and a detailed description of the method are in the paper dated October 14 at http://climaterealists.com/index.php?tid=145&linkbox=true .

This research shows that there is no significant Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) (and therefore no human caused climate change) from added atmospheric carbon dioxide or any other added greenhouse gas.

Great article, Alan. I wonder if many Americans know that the initial "smog" equipment via the catalytic converter was to turn an actual pollutant, poisonous carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide. An excellent and useful process. But the scare-mongers couldn't leave well enough alone. They had to make CO2 something to scare the uneducated and small children. Your articles are invaluable. Thanks.

Thanks for your great ongoing work. However the rest of us need to get off our butts and do our part - like contacting our congressmen/politicians, filing complaint forms against the media etc. Together we can make a difference!

Hi,


It is a good day for all the skeptics.

I started speculating about the entire thing weeks ago, in the hype of the COP15. This is what I found: it doesn't matter if it's a hoax, we should all be a bit more responsible for the little things like our consumerism, waste management and travel. It's because of the K (carrying capacity) of our planet, not in terms of land, but in terms of resources and adaptation to development.

Malcolm said...

I believe it will go down like this, well it good for the environment, does not matter temp have not gone up. Also because this is a religion facts will mean nothing. This will be spun and AGW followers will continue with their lies.

Guy said...

Muni - nobody is saying we shouldn't be more CONSERVATIVE with our use of resources, or our generation and disposal of waste. As a conservative, I've always felt that it made good sense to use our resources wisely and polluting our environment never made any sense at all to me, so I see where you're coming from....

After many years of foolishness, we WERE doing significant damage to our environment. It happened gradually, and it took a while for us to realize it, but we eventually saw the errors of our ways and took action. It seems like people have forgotten how far we've come....

The Cuyahoga River used to catch on fire, cars and factories used to spew a multitude of toxic fumes, and our cities were in a constant fog. We were de-foresting the land without concern for renewing our resources and many species of plants and animals were suffering ....

Then, we realized what was happening, and developed emission controls that reduced emissions to manageable levels, and established the guidelines that allowed us to prosper without depleting our resources. If we hadn't been sold out by our own government, we could have remained competitive with the rest of the world, maintained our manufacturing base, and kept employment, the economy, AND the environment healthy.

Now, all these same things are happening in China, Viet Nam, Mexico and South America, and they have no intention of doing things any differently. When they start choking and dying, they too will make the necessary changes.

Here in the US, faced with a shrinking economy, lost jobs, and a stagnant GDP, letting a small group of fear-mongers guide the country down the path to total economic collapse in the name of global warming or any other such scam simply makes no sense. This is nothing more than an effort to fleece us of whatever wealth we have left, and re-distribute it. The promise is to re-distribute it to the less fortunate, but we all know that's not going to happen. Just ask Al Gore how much of his "green" profit he's given to the needy ....

I just read a story in the news tonight that stated that the ice is still melting, our cities are going to be flooded, and we're all doomed. All this despite the recent revelation that they've been cooking the numbers on global warming ... in my opinion, publishing stories like that should be a criminal offense.

Now that it looks like the kooks have been exposed the next part of the info war is to contact your Senator and have them vote No to H.R. 2454: American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009.

The House of Representatives passed this bill by 4 votes but it looks like the Senate is going to nix it. If you are an American contact your Senator NOW. Vitally important that it get voted down.

Sen. James M. Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works has launched an investigation into the matter and is busy gathering others to shoot this down.

Obama is probably going to sign off on the Copenhagen Treaty but he will be hard pressed to comply with the Senate telling him to shove it.

Get 'er done. It will take your effort to quash this garbage science and throw it back into the cesspool where it belongs.

BTW I am Canadian so I can call...but our government tends to follow the lead of the USA.

Peace - out.

The climate has been warming over the past 20,000 years due to natural causes; not carbon. The Sea level rise has been extreme during certain intervals. The glaciers have been in a retreating over this time period. Terrible about a leading researcher forging data.

Certain facts about Earth's climate are not in dispute:

The heat-trapping nature of carbon dioxide and other gases was demonstrated in the mid-19th century.2 Their ability to affect the transfer of infrared energy through the atmosphere is the scientific basis of many JPL-designed instruments, such as AIRS. Increased levels of greenhouse gases must cause the Earth to warm in response.
Ice cores drawn from Greenland, Antarctica, and tropical mountain glaciers show that the Earth’s climate responds to changes in solar output, in the Earth’s orbit, and in greenhouse gas levels. They also show that in the past, large changes in climate have happened very quickly, geologically-speaking: in tens of years, not in millions or even thousands.

Alan Caruba said...

Sorry, Adam, but it is that big ball of gas called the Sun that controls the Earth's climate and CO2 plays no role whatever, showing up well AFTER any change occurs. Simply repeating all the erroroneous assertions about global warming does not change that.
