An Inconvenient Truth: ‘Climate-Gate’ Is Real, Global Warming Science Is Bogus

Robert Tracinski writes at RealClearPolitics.com on the “scandal of the century” — that the science behind global warming is bogus. In case you haven’t heard, thousands of emails have been obtained by a hackers that expose how scientists working at Hadley Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at Britain’s University of East Anglia manipulated data and lied to support their theory of man-made global warming.

In fact, the data actually shows the Earth is cooling. VerumSerum.com has a good post on the emails, which leads to another blog, wattsupwiththat.com, showing the emails from Willis Eschenbach — who believes he is the person who filed the original Freedom of Information Act request that resulted in the coverup.

Tracinski writes:

For more than a decade, we’ve been told that there is a scientific ‘consensus’ that humans are causing global warming, that ‘the debate is over’ and all ‘legitimate’ scientists acknowledge the truth of global warming. Now we know what this ‘consensus’ really means. What it means is: the fix is in.

This is an enormous case of organized scientific fraud, but it is not just scientific fraud. It is also a criminal act. Suborned by billions of taxpayer dollars devoted to climate research, dozens of prominent scientists have established a criminal racket in which they seek government money-Phil Jones has raked in a total of £13.7 million in grants from the British government-which they then use to falsify data and defraud the taxpayers. It’s the most insidious kind of fraud: a fraud in which the culprits are lauded as public heroes. Judging from this cache of e-mails, they even manage to tell themselves that their manipulation of the data is intended to protect a bigger truth and prevent it from being ‘confused’ by inconvenient facts and uncontrolled criticism.

This is huge, folks. When you consider how long the lies have been perpetrated, the millions of dollars spent on fraudulent scientific research (taxpayer money to boot), not to mention an entire generation of indoctrinated youth who think the sky will fall if we don’t all drive electric cars — this is a crime of unfathomable proportions.

There is also a good editorial at the Washington Times, posted today on the scandal.  In it, the WT observes:

“The story has gotten worse since the global-cooling cover-up was exposed through a treasure trove of leaked e-mails a week ago. The Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia has been incredibly influential in the global-warming debate. The CRU claims the world’s largest temperature data set, and its research and mathematical models form the basis of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2007 report. The CRU claims the world’s largest temperature data set, and its research and mathematical models form the basis of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2007 report.”

It will be interesting to watch how the scandal will impact the upcoming U.N. Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, where Obama is expected to personally commit the U.S. to slashing greenhouse gas emissions by 17% in the next ten years to help reduce global warming. This could be a costly mistake on a number of levels, economically and politically.
