DO SMOKING GUNS CAUSE GLOBAL WARMING, TOO?

I guess I’ll pile on tqcincinnatus’s Climategate post, since he said at the end of his post: “That’s it for now, more to come as it comes”. Well, here it comes. As usual Ann Coulter has her own unique way of looking at this:

As we now know (and by “we” I mean “everyone with access to the Internet”), the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) has just been caught ferociously manipulating the data about the Earth’s temperature.

Recently leaked e-mails from the “scientists” at CRU show that, when talking among themselves, they forthrightly admit to using a “trick” to “hide the decline” in the Earth’s temperature since 1960. as one e-mail says. Still another describes their manipulation of the data thus: “[W]e can have a proper result, but only by including a load of garbage!”

Am I just crazy from the heat or were they trying to deceive us?

Global warming cheerleaders in the media were quick to defend the scandalous e-mails, explaining that, among scientists, the words “trick,” “hide the decline” and “garbage” do not mean “trick,” “hide the decline” and “garbage.” These words actually mean “onion soup,” “sexual submissive” and “Gary, Ind.”

(Boy, it must be great to be able to redefine words right in the middle of a debate.)

Also, of course, the defenders said that the words needed to be placed “in context” — the words’ check was in the mail, and they’d like to spend more time with their families.

I have placed the words in context and it turns out what they mean is: gigantic academic fraud.

The leaked e-mail exchanges also show the vaunted “scientists” engaging in a possibly criminal effort to delete their own smoking-gun e-mails in response to a Freedom of Information request. Next, the fanatics will be telling us that “among scientists,” this behavior does not indicate knowledge of guilt.

If I recall correctly, their next move should be to fire the special prosecutor late Saturday night.

These e-mails aren’t a tempest in a teapot. They are evidence of pervasive fraud by a massively influential institution that has dominated news coverage of global warming.

CRU was regularly cited as the leading authority on “global climate analysis” — including by the very news outlets that are burying the current scandal, such as The New York Times and The Washington Post. The CRU alone received more than $23 million in taxpayer funds for its work on global warming.

Having claimed to have collected the most complete data on the Earth’s temperature for the last half century, the CRU’s summary of that data was used by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for its 2007 report demanding that we adopt a few modest lifestyle changes, such as abolishing modern technology, reverting to hunter/gatherer status and taxing ourselves into servitude.

But then last weekend — in the middle of the “Let’s Cook the Books!” e-mail scandal — the CRU said that all its data on the Earth’s temperature since 1960 had been irretrievably “lost.” (Although I suspect “overcooked” might be a more apt term.)

The way this episode is unfolding, the environmentalists may be forced to drop their phantom threat of global warming and go back to the phantom threat of global cooling.

Most disturbingly, the CRU-affiliated “scientists” were caught red-handed conspiring to kill the careers and reputations of scientists who dissented from the religion of global warming. Indignant that scientific journals were publishing papers skeptical of global warming, the cult members plotted to get editors ousted and the publications discredited.

This sabotage of global warming dissenters may be more galling than their manipulation of the data. Until now, the global warming cult’s sole argument has been to demand that everyone shut up in response to the “scientific consensus” that human activity was causing global warming.

That’s their idea of a free and open debate.

It’s always the same thing with primitive people — voodoo practitioners, rain dancers and liberals. In lieu of facts, debate and a weighing of the evidence, religious fanatics respond to all counterarguments by invoking a higher authority: the witch doctor, a “scientific consensus,” “the Constitution” or “historians are agreed.”

Read the rest here

Oh, and you’d probably think that the person in charge of the U.N. Climate Change panel (UNIPCC) is a climatologist, or even a meteorologist, right?

Wrong, Bucko!!!

The person in charge of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is a MECHANICAL ENGINEER for a railroad in India!!!

So, using the U.N.’s warped logic, I guess I’m qualified to remove your appendix even though I have no medical training whatsoever. Well, I do know CPR and I watched “ER” on TV a few times…

    Russian President declines to answer if Russia would support sanctions against the Islamic Republic. 17:01

    Yeah I bet Iran is shaking in it’s boots? and gives a rat’s ass what Obama and the USA think or say as long as they have the Soviets on their side. Oh and considering the tread I bet the Iranians don’t give a shit about global warming either.

    Ann is right abt. the depravity of these scammers sabotaging the careers of any scientist who didn’t go along with their phony bullshit. They systematically tried to discredit them and silence them. They kept their work from being published in reputable science journals. And then used their clout to stop them from getting grants because they weren’t peer reviewed. They were like the mob or a street gang. They viciously pushed out competitors and took over. There was just too much money at stake. These greedy bums were never scientists. They were criminals from the get go.

    FWIW, He and I both graduated in the same year from the same university with BS degrees in engineering. But mine was in ChE, which gives you a bit more insight into atmospheric sciences than his. And then I went to grad school.

    I beg to differ. I have several faves, such as “The Ballad of Gillian Gibbons” (original, though it can be sung to the tune of “The Wearin’ of the Green”), and “A Modern Liberal Democrat”:

    A Modern Liberal Democrat

    —with apologies to Gilbert & Sullivan

    I am the very model of a modern liberal Democrat

    I’ve spread out ‘cross the nation from my native campus habitat

    I know our shabby history of policies discriminate

    And think we should apologize from now until the infinite

    I look upon myself as a citizen international

    I think restricting entry of illegals is irrational

    I take care always to show elevated moral attitude

    And speak with unimpeachable political correctitude

    And speak with unimpeachable political correctitude

    And speak with unimpeachable political correctitude

    And speak with unimpeachable political correcti-rectitude

    Though not myself religious I will talk of spirituality

    I worship at the shrine of income and gender equality

    I support racial set-asides, preferences, and bureaucrats

    I am the very model of a modern liberal Democrat

    He supports racial set-asides, preferences, and bureaucrats

    He is the very model of a modern liberal Democrat

    I reject the notion that Al-Qaeda wants to form a Caliphate

    We’d rapidly end differences if we would just negotiate

    I think we should do more to prevent other nations’ genocide

    But if we use our military I’ll support the other side

    I second-guess every decision strategic and tactical

    I support our troops in every way, as long as it’s not practical

    Our army should not engage in perilous foreign adventure

    So I oppose on principle each new defense expenditure

    So I oppose on principle each new defense expenditure

    So I oppose on principle each new defense expenditure

    So I oppose on principle each new defense expend-expenditure

    I think that women should have choices when they’re faced with pregnancy

    But there is one choice over others I view preferentially

    In short, supporting set-asides, preferences, and bureaucrats

    I am the very model of a modern liberal Democrat

    In short, supporting set-asides, preferences, and bureaucrats

    I am the very model of a modern liberal Democrat

    In fact, when I have shed my nostalgic dreams of revolution

    When I know government’s the problem more than the solution

    When I realize there’s no way that we can fund Social Security

    With so much of our population having reached maturity

    When I have learnt taxation doesn’t create private sector jobs

    When I stop using tax grants as a way to buy votes from the mob

    In short, when I have shorn some of my more blatant hypocrisies

    You might actually see me begin to support democracy

    You might actually see me begin to support democracy

    You might actually see me begin to support democracy

    You might actually see me begin to support democra-mocracy

    For the economic knowledge which I’ve clung to from my early teens

    Says, “To each who wants it must come from each person who has got the means”

    And so, supporting set-asides, preferences, and bureaucrats

    I am the very model of a modern liberal Democrat

    And so, supporting set-asides, preferences, and bureaucrats

    I am the very model of a modern liberal Democrat

    O tidings of Copenhagen joy,

    O-O ti-i-dings of Copenhagen joy.

    Destroying the careers of,
    Those who disagree with us,
    Subvert the peer review process,
    To build a consensus,
    All for a heroic purpose,
    So what’s with all the fuss?,
    O tidings of Copenhagen joy,
    Copenhagen joy,
    O-O ti-i-dings of Copenhagen joy.

    Maybe the polar bears aren’t,
    In imminent distress,
    Yet still we need carbon credits,
    For Albert Gore to bless,
    So on to Denmark we will fly,
    In petrol-guzzling jets,

    UN: Forget Science – Climate Change Should Be A Religion

    According to newly revealed doccuments authored two years ago, the United Nations believes environmentalism should be regarded on the same level with religion “as the only compelling, value-based narrative available to humanity.”

    That’s right. This global body is urging the world to take the ‘crisis’ of global warming on faith. Father Earth, Al Gore concurs.

    “This is not a political issue, or a scientific issue or a psychological issue – it’s a moral issue. If anything it’s actually a spiritual issue.

    There you have it. The world should regard the environment as a religion and take on faith the fact that billions of dollars are needed to fix this so-called man-made crisis.

    The fight over global warming science is about to cross the Atlantic with a U.S. researcher poised to sue NASA, demanding release of the same kind of climate data that has landed a leading British center in hot water over charges it skewed its data.

    Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said NASA has refused for two years to provide information under the Freedom of Information Act that would show how the agency has shaped its climate data and would explain why the agency has repeatedly had to correct its data going as far back as the 1930s.

    “I assume that what is there is highly damaging,” Mr. Horner said. “These guys are quite clearly bound and determined not to reveal their internal discussions about this.”

    The British have been smarting for over half a century that the friggin’ Jews got to take over some of the territory the British formerly ruled, and rashly promised to the Jews in (transitory) gratitude for Chaim Weizmann’s saving their asses in WWI.

    @ WrathofG-d:

    It is interesting that, as Britain throws over actual Christianity, the lingering heritage of antisemitic bigotry inherited from centuries of Christianity nonetheless remains. Whether this is indeed a vestigial holdover from Christianity, or a part of the new Leftist faith that has supplanted it, or a combination of both, is something for others to parse.

    Let me say, by the way, that there has always been a philo-Semitic strain in some portion of British Christianity, of which Orde Wingate was a noble exemplar (as, btw, were the Puritans, which is one reason that America has been so relatively hospitable to Jews). Nonetheless, Britain is also the home of the York Massacre, and the place where the blood libel was invented (see Hugh of Lincoln, and Chaucer).

    Letter from my congress sreature

    Today I called for a thorough and transparent investigation into the questions raised by the disclosure of emails from the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia.

    Clearly there is a strong appearance that important scientific research may have been tainted by politics.

    In a direct response to the issue, I joined a group of bipartisan lawmakers in asking five U.S. Inspectors General from the U.S. Departments of Energy, Interior, Commerce as well as the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Science Foundation to determine if the scientific and academic integrity of U.S. taxpayer-financed climate studies was compromised.

    Our letter also requested that the Inspectors General take all necessary action to ensure that evidence involving the e-mail exchanges is preserved. You can find a copy of the letter I signed on my congressional website at lance.house.gov.

    The manipulation or suppression of scientific data is an unacceptable practice that may call into question many research outcomes used by U.S. Departments and agencies engaged in climate research. Congress has an obligation to seek answers and I call for that process to begin today.

    Good on you leonard !

    We all know that French has 48,234 words. All of which mean Surrender.

    On the other hand, Chuck Norris only has two words: Roundhouse Kick.

    If it does snow tomorrow, it will also be the first time in recorded (post-Civil War) history Houston has had snow two consecutive winters.
