"The 1,073 e-mails examined by the AP show that scientists harbored private doubts, however slight and fleeting, even as they told the world they were certain about climate change. However, the exchanges don't undercut the vast body of evidence showing the world is warming because of man-made greenhouse gas emissions."
"But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg." - Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, 1782
Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.
This type of science is like religion, man twisting facts to support his own personal beliefs. Its to easy to speculate and inject bad data/opinion. It reminds me of the 70's when scientists were in agreement on the California coast sliding into the ocean. I wish they were right on that one.................
Well hell guys... You knew someone would put out something to try and do a little damage control. I mean this has been a multi-billion dollar a year operation. And when your cash cow stops making milk, you'll do anything to get a drop for her teats.
You knew they were gonna back-peddle this thing and try to blow it off or make the issue at hand seem less than it is. Come on... If say 4point and I devised a scheme to suck cash out of the government and emailed each other about it, got caught then tried to cover it up. We'd go to prison until we die. The difference here is that we didn't go to dinner and cocktail parties and rub elbows with and climb under the table for some senator and or world leader who stands to make a ton of cash off of the scheme to.
It just really pisses me off that the tax payers and contributors (world wide) are still allowing this shit to continue without saying so much as one word. Yet when Michael Jackson dies the world goes on a 6 week vigil. This planet is filled with retards. I will truly relish the day the Mother Ship arrives to enslave us all!
EDIT: HAHAHAHA... I'm loving this Lord Monckton fella! I went back and watched the video after I posted. Priceless!
One more deserving jerk who just got nailed for falsely spinning the so-called "global warming" data is frigging Gore. He just got through claiming a scientist's data indicated that all the arctic's ice would likely be gone during the summer in 5 years. The problem was that several days after Gore made that announcement during a a speech at a climate conference, the scientist whose data he quoted found out what Gore said and went berserk, confirming that his data in no way predicted that.
I've suspected for years all the "global warming" bullshit was nothing more than pure politics, with the liberals and liberal politicians simply wanting more power and to impose even more controls on industries and businesses.

Exactly . . . there's not much of a difference between the Green movement and religion from where I’m sitting. Both seem to start by twisting a (potentially good) idea into a belief, adding a bit of faith to convince yourself that you are right and everyone else is wrong, lost, evil, etc. Next comes evangelism which just wouldn't be complete without fear mongering, twisting of facts, etc. And if the movement gains enough momentum, you can build a set of laws around the belief, elect officials to enforce these new belief based laws, and persecute all that oppose. Who knows, if we're lucky maybe we’ll have a Carbon Inquisition and begin to execute those that aren’t driving a Prius or biking to work.
Bite the hand that feeds you . . . you've had more than enough to eat already.
I can prove either side is right because I can make charts and I have a journalism degree. I am only waiting for the biggest offer $$$. I would have tried to release the "facts" more quickly -- but the Tiger Woods story is, of course, much more important than anything else going on in this universe and really should get 100% of the media's attention for another couple of months.
“This was the danger of always criticising the skeptics for not publishing in the “peer-reviewed literature”. Obviously, they found a solution to that–take over a journal! So what do we do about this? I think we have to stop considering “Climate Research” as a legitimate peer-reviewed journal. Perhaps we should encourage our colleagues in the climate research community to no longer submit to, or cite papers in, this journal. We would also need to consider what we tell or request of our more reasonable colleagues who currently sit on the editorial board…What do others think?”
“I will be emailing the journal to tell them I’m having nothing more to do with it until they rid themselves of this troublesome editor.”“It results from this journal having a number of editors. The responsible one for this is a well-known skeptic in NZ. He has let a few papers through by Michaels and Gray in the past. I’ve had words with Hans von Storch about this, but got nowhere. Another thing to discuss in Nice !”
I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.
That was awesome!! My friend goes to Greenland every now and again and while everyone claims that the ice is breaking off and falling into the sea, he also reminds me that 3 miles of new ice is formed on the backside.
No one in the world exercised more influence on the events leading up to the Copenhagen conference on global warming than Dr Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and mastermind of its latest report in 2007.
Although Dr Pachauri is often presented as a scientist (he was even once described by the BBC as “the world’s top climate scientist”), as a former railway engineer with a PhD in economics he has no qualifications in climate science at all.
What has also almost entirely escaped attention, however, is how Dr Pachauri has established an astonishing worldwide portfolio of business interests with bodies which have been investing billions of dollars in organisations dependent on the IPCC’s policy recommendations.
These outfits include banks, oil and energy companies and investment funds heavily involved in ‘carbon trading’ and ‘sustainable technologies’, which together make up the fastest-growing commodity market in the world, estimated soon to be worth trillions of dollars a year.
Today, in addition to his role as chairman of the IPCC, Dr Pachauri occupies more than a score of such posts, acting as director or adviser to many of the bodies which play a leading role in what has become known as the international ‘climate industry’
I still don't get it. Most self absorbed retards would get back in line or break to the front, cause a scene and belittle someones character publicly if their barista forgot the put the "extra shot" in their latte. What about that driver who lays on the horn for ten minutes, begins to drive erratically, endangers others and makes a scene in the name of being right after he/she's been cut off on the interstate? Stay with my whilst I digress.
The point I'm trying to make is that "WE ALL" have been forced to fund this bogus, money making scheme through tax dollars. We've all been inconvenienced by it and there have been a lot of poor, less than educated people that have been scared to the point of wallet cleansing fits of anxiety. And for what? So the elite can stay wealthy through the recessions, so the auto makers can continue to sell vehicles that normal, non fearful people would laugh at. And to top it all off this thing has leached itself into the very pits of our existence and day to day life through "environmentally friendly" products. And yes, I clumping global warming and the whole "we're about to run out of oil" crap, and the many, many other fear based, possible apocalyptic outcome schemes all in one heaping pile of bureaucratic manure. It's bullshite! Granted, you shouldn't go around crapping in your own nest, but goddammit we shouldn't have to pay out the nose to help spread the word that shitting in your nest is bad! And we especially shouldn't scoff at others who do shit in their nest until we all take a good hard look at ourselves, have ALL THE FACTS and educate ourselves beyond the hype. Too many times the lemmings have walked off that cliff in the name of someone's OPINION!
There's a method to my madness... Stay with me. Like I said about the retard in the coffee shop, the driver on the highway... Where are the lynch mobs toting torches to the doorsteps of these fear mongering thieves? By damn, if someone feels they are paying too much for their meal at a restaurant or if they get shorted in some way at the store they make a scene. Why no scene other than a few well placed blogs forged by wordsmiths? I know for one, I'd like to have my tax payer dollars that were wastefully and carelessly given to these morons by our government! We're quick to throw a tea party but we all stand here closed mouth in the wake of this? What gives?
PARIS (AFP) – Man's best friend could be one of the environment's worst enemies, according to a new study which says the carbon pawprint of a pet dog is more than double that of a gas-guzzling sports utility vehicle.
