This is the beginning of many full-length articles that will come as the House of Mann-Made Global Warming collapses. Its long, but when its from a professional feature writer drawing a story of a professional scam-buster who works at the highest levels, its a great read. Enjoy Its 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 Kerrys presidential run. Now he is working against an even bigger enemy: belief in climate change. Somehow, he seems to be winning.

Early on the morning of November 17, Gavin Schmidt sat down at his computer and entered his password. It didnt 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 NASAs Goddard Institute in Manhattan, hed 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:
WE ARE BEING HACKED RIGHT NOW.
its always clear that hed rather have fun. This is his genius, especially in a world given to screaming caps and paranoid detail. Its another way hes changing the narrative, showing that one side has a sense of humor.
Marc, of course, runs ClimateDepot.com. Its not everyones cup of tea, but there is no other site like it, and with Marcs 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.

AL GORES BEACH HOUSE
Isnt it interesting that the head of the Church Of Al Gore owns a beach house!
WHAT ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING AND ALL THOSE RISING OCEANS?
FIGURE EIGHT ISLAND REAL ESTATE
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.
Thank god for those emails - whoever released those, did a very helpful thing for humanity.
Inhofe is the only politician really going after the clmate geeks. He is to be praised and commended.
