Global Warming Fraud goes to the White House
The response to the Global Warming e-mails (State of the Nation blogged here) first were redefining "trick" to mean "short cut", then marginalize the content because of the means they were obtained. Some scientists have been vocal to minimize these "few" scientists asserting that the science is valid with widespread credibility.
While some will scream "right-wing media" and "Rush Limbaugh propaganda", it is the Canada Free Press which delivers the next blow with this article connecting the Global Warming confessions to the White House Science Czar John Holdren.
Nicknamed "Climategate", the article reveals "Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist Canadian climatologist Dr. Tim Ball terms "a truculent and nasty manner that provides a brief demonstration of his lack of understanding, commitment on faith and willingness to ridicule and bully people".
That would be John Holdren and the tactics to used to promote global warming, oppressing dissent by skeptical scientists.
Ball: "...It is already clear the entire claims and positions of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are based on falsified manipulated material and is therefore completely compromised. The fallout will be extensive as material continues to emerge. Reputations of the scientists involved are already destroyed, however fringe players will continue to be identified and their reputations destroyed or sullied."
Solar physicists Sallie Baliunas and Willie Soon were mocked and ridiculed for their contradictory work confirming the existence of the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) from a multitude of sources. Their work challenged attempts to get rid of the MWP because it contradicted the claim by the proponents of anthropogenic global warming (AGW).
"In practice, burden of proof is an evolving thing – it evolves as the amount of evidence relevant to a particular proposition grows" - Holden's very political statement from an email. Especially disturbing from a scientist.
These are the major players at the IPCC and the global warming theorists. An announced hearing in Washington will present a dog and pony show to suppress critics and validate the global warming hysteria.
Some interesting comments/exerts:
Re: Flattening and declining temperatures since 2000: "This means we can't fully comprehend or understand exactly what is going on. We know that it cooled in 2008 but we are not 100 per cent sure why even though we can point to the fact that there was a major La Nino event" -- Dr. Kenneth Trenberth
"I can't see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report. Kevin and I will keep them out somehow--even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!" -- Phil Jones (suppressing data that would contradict AGW)
"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" -- Michael Mann
If nothing else maybe we can revisit the "Debate is over" assertion and seek out honest science.
