Lost in the wall to wall Tisei coverage this weekend was a post I made regarding the discovery of emails and data showing that climatologists have been fudging their data. This new discovery underscores what I’ve been saying, that “Global Warming” in a addition to being a nuevo religion it’s a billion dollar plus industry to the scientists that count on it for funding.
Even faced with this information people like the environmental blogger for Boston.com and U.S. Senator John Kerry can’t be bothered in the least with even a little bit of skepticism. Yesterday a report was issued that said that, in effect, if nothing is done beachfront property will be available out near the Longwood Medical Area. The environmental blog at Boston.com sounded the alarm.
A new report out by World Wildlife Fund and insurer Allianz warns that sea levels could rise along the U.S. coast a whopping 26 inches by 2050 as the world warms. That would place assets worth $7.4 trillion at risk along the US coast.
“With each new study the alarm bells become deafeningly clear that climate change will have devastating consequences for our economy and way of life,” said David Reed, senior vice president of policy at WWF.
Oh yes the stellar climate organziation the World Wildlife Fund. If you remember the standard answer of the “Global Warming” crowd is that you can only trust climate scientists on climate change. So exactly how many climate scientists work for an animal protection NGO?
I contacted John Kerry’s office yesterday via voice mail and email to get his reaction to the new news. Given his sponsoring of cap and trade legislation I thought perhaps he may have a change of heart and may want to investigate the stunning emails. Alas this was his response.
First, to everyone here – we may not agree on most issues – but Happy Thanksgiving. Second, on this climate change question, let’s all stick to the facts. I’ve dug into the science a long time now, and I believe it’s compelling, but don’t take my word for anything – look at it yourself. The latest report-consensus science – which was released earlier today and can be found HERE – speaks for itself. It shows that climate change impacts are occurring faster, and with greater intensity, than even a few years ago. I haven’t read a thing about this other report.
I replied to his press secretary that the problem with using the word “consensus science” is that we are now finding that the science has been faked. I also provided a link to a CBS.com story about the growing email controversy.
he leaked documents (see our previous coverage) come from the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia in eastern England. In global warming circles, the CRU wields outsize influence: it claims the world’s largest temperature data set, and its work and mathematical models were incorporated into the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 2007 report. That report, in turn, is what the Environmental Protection Agency acknowledged it “relies on most heavily” when concluding that carbon dioxide emissions endanger public health and should be regulated.
Last week’s leaked e-mails range from innocuous to embarrassing and, critics believe, scandalous. They show that some of the field’s most prominent scientists were so wedded to theories of man-made global warming that they ridiculed dissenters who asked for copies of their data (“have to respond to more crap criticisms from the idiots”), cheered the deaths of skeptical journalists, and plotted how to keep researchers who reached different conclusions from publishing in peer-reviewed journals.
One e-mail message, apparently from CRU director Phil Jones, references the U.K.’s Freedom of Information Act when asking another researcher to delete correspondence that might be disclosed in response to public records law: “Can you delete any emails you may have had with Keith re AR4? Keith will do likewise.” Another, also apparently from Jones: global warming skeptics “have been after the CRU station data for years. If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the UK, I think I’ll delete the file rather than send to anyone.” (Jones was a contributing author to the chapter of the U.N.’s IPCC report titled “Detection of Climate Change and Attribution of Causes.”)
There is clear and growing evidence that the entire “scientific basis” for “Global Warming” is a scam. The action of these scientists are the actions of people looking to cover up wrongdoing. They have thwarted FOIA requests at every turn.
Faced with that mounting evidence the mainstream media and key policy makers who are invested in the movement can’t even step back a moment to say, “what if we’re wrong”. I will continue to press Senator Kerry’s office to see if he will at least agree to Senate Hearings.
