Skip to comments.A Year After Climategate, The Corruption Of Science Persists

The following report is from Benny Peisers blog The Global Warming Policy Foundation:
It is a year since the so-called Climategate e-mails were leaked. Since then, we have had freezing winters in Europe and the US, and revelations of gross misrepresentations from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The lasting impression is of massive corruption of science.
Leaked from the Climate Research Unit in England, the e-mails showed the scientists behind the climate scare plotting to: hide, delete and manipulate data; to denigrate scientists presenting different views; to force journals to publish only papers promoting climate alarm; to subvert peer review into pal review; and make the reports of the IPCC nothing but alarmist propaganda. The corruption spread through governments, universities, scientific societies and journals. You have to look back to the Lysenko episode in the Soviet Union in the 1940s (when a crank persuaded the Soviet establishment that agriculture did not follow Darwinian evolution) to find such perversion of science.
The worst nonsense after the scandal was this: Well, some climate scientists committed a few minor transgressions but the basic science is sound. In fact, the basic science is nonexistent.
There is no evidence that mankind is changing the climate in a dangerous way. The slight warming of the past 150 years is no different from previous natural warming periods, such as the worldwide medieval warm period from about 900 to 1200AD

As with most everything, follow the money.
FYI, it’s a nice sunny day out so I’ve taken advantage and opened the windows before it drops 20 degrees tomorrow.
I can’t wait for the rats on MSNBC explain the Polar Bear weather they are having in England. They will say it’s all part of the global warming process?
Government corrupts everything it touches: science, statistical polling, housing, energy production, tax code, marriage, food production, schools . . . .
It’s what Reagan said. Government is the problem.
I’ll bring up my old saying on government:
Government is like insurance: you don’t to have any more than you just got to have.
I think you worded it wrong but I get your point. And you are right.
Ooops . . . sorry . . You don’t want any more than you just gotta have.
did you see this?
more tripe from the climate scam artists:
I’d like to see algore sitting in an orange uniform inside a prison for the rest of his life.
No, I had not seen it. Sad, but I am probably like a lot of others . . . the little boy has cried wolf too many times.
The climate change thieves have discredited science. I pretty much dismiss all scientific studies published for widespread publication as a pack of lies designed to create hysteria among the “ignorant” masses. Unfortunately, I will likely dismiss some important science going forward.
