This is the beginning of many full-length articles that will come as the House of Mann-Made Global Warming collapses. It’s long, but when it’s from a professional feature writer drawing a story of a professional scam-buster who works at the highest levels, it’s a great read. Enjoy :-) It’s not a grand scientific expose, but it does turn ClimateGate into a human interest story with momentum, and, as such, it may reach a wider audience than any scientific expose.

This Man Wants to Convince You Global Warming Is a Hoax

Marc Morano broke the Swift Boat story and effectively stalled John Kerry’s presidential run. Now he is working against an even bigger enemy: belief in climate change. Somehow, he seems to be winning.

By John H. Richardson

Early on the morning of November 17, Gavin Schmidt sat down at his computer and entered his password. It didn’t work. Strange, he thought. He tried a few other accounts and none of them worked, either. Now he was alarmed. As a leading climatologist with NASA’s Goddard Institute in Manhattan, he’d been hacked before. He was used to e-mails from people who disapproved of his work, threatening e-mails that detailed the romantic life he was going to have in prison. So he knew what to do: He logged in via the Unix shell command.

A second later, the computer logged him off — and locked him out. Someone was in there, fighting him in real time. Schmidt sent an emergency message to his Web server:

Note: Marc points out that Esquire didn’t get it quite right when it criticized him about comments on sea level changes. But, otherwise, I’ve no doubt Marc loves this story. It does say about Marc (among thousands of other words):

“… it’s always clear that he’d rather have fun. This is his genius, especially in a world given to screaming caps and paranoid detail. It’s another way he’s changing the narrative, showing that one side has a sense of humor.”

Marc, of course, runs It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but there is no other site like it, and with Marc’s long-detailed history in this, working for Senator Inhofe before, there is nobody quite like him. I was lucky enough to see him at work in Bali 2007, and the man is a master at pulling a meaningful message out of mud.

Just learned this from the comments section at JoNova:




Isn’t it interesting that the head of the Church Of Al Gore owns a beach house!


This private, peaceful ocean side haven offers bright blue waters and long stretches of beach, and is home to notables like Al Gore, John Edwards, and others who relish seclusion and natural surroundings.

working for Senator Inhofe before

Inhofe is the only politician really going after the clmate geeks. He is to be praised and commended.
