Skip to comments.The global warming hoax: The media's silent scandal
Posted on 11/29/2009 3:51:09 PM PST by luv2ndamend
If a scandal isn't reported by the media, does that mean it never happened?
Nancy Morgan For the millions of Americans who don't watch Fox News or listen to talk radio, the answer is a resounding yes. Last Friday, November 20, evidence came to light that "appears to show a conspiracy to falsify data and suppress academic debate in order to exaggerate the possible threat of man-made global warming." Translation: The global warming movement rests almost entirely on the IPCC's claim to represent the "consensus" of climate science. That entire movement now stands discredited.
In the face of this absolutely shameful and possibly criminal revelation of chicanery, deceit and manipulation of data, the mainstream media has stuck to their decades long policy of ignoring any evidence or opinion that challenges their firm belief that the world is undergoing a climate crisis. A crisis that can only be rectified if all global citizens drastically change their behavior. Despite these revelations, the AP's science writer continued reporting on the worsening climate non-crisis, "Since the 1997 international accord to fight global warming, climate change has worsened and accelerated beyond some of the grimmest of warnings made back then." Scary stuff, if it were true.
CNN chimed in, reporting their own shocking headlines: Sea Level Rise Could Cost Port Cities $28 Trillion. Remember, this 'news' story was published after evidence had come to light that credibly challenged the very facts CNN was reporting. Yawn. Six days after this scandal came to light, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and NBC had yet to make their viewers aware of what is being called "the greatest [scandal] in modern history." A scandal that could derail the whole concept of man-made global warming. And, coincidently, the $129 billion carbon market that rests on this shaky and manipulated data.
Also ignoring this scandal is our very own president, who announced last Wednesday that he will attend the long-anticipated, high-stakes global climate summit in Copenhagen. Obama's climate czar, Carol Browner, announced on the very same day that global warming science is "settled.' No need to even address those pesky e-mails that purport to show differently.
"I'm sticking with the 2,500 scientists. These people have been studying this issue for a very long time and agree this problem is real," said Ms. Browner. The 2,500 hundred scientists, by the way, are comprised mainly of United Nations bureaucrats who have a vested interest in the massive wealth re-distribution that they suggest as a solution to this non-crisis. On Thursday, more evidence of climate chicanery came to light but was again ignored by the media. Gerd Leipold, the outgoing leader of Greenpeace, admitted that his organization's recent claim that the Arctic Ice will disappear by 2030 was "a mistake." Oops.
Also on Thursday, information surfaced that indicates Australia, also, appears to have been tinkering with raw data in order to make "global warming' appear scarier that it really is. Again, no mention was made in the U.S. media. Oh, CNN did finally acknowledged the issue yesterday by reporting that there was "very little context" in the e-mail evidence. CNN declined to publish any of the damning e-mails and they failed to identify any of those 'leading scientists' whose work has been shown to be a possible fraud.
Those 'leading scientists' then continued with business as usual, issuing another dire proclamation, "Tackling climate change will help prevent millions of deaths among people who are alive now and save the world for future generations." These same scientists then responded to the damning evidence to the contrary in the usual way. By attacking and discrediting the motives of the messenger. "We're facing an effort by special interests who are trying to confuse the public," said Richard Somerville, Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and a lead author of the UN IPCC Fourth Assessment Report.
As of this writing, Fox News is the only national outlet reporting on this scandal. WebsiteWattsUpWithThat and Canada Free Press appear to be the only media investigating the hacked e-mails that seem to show a decades long conspiracy to fudge climate data and squelch any and all opposing data and scientists.
The 'garbage-in, garbage-out' climate models the IPCC use as proof of global warming now appear to be false. Global 'leaders' conveniently ignore the burgeoning scandal and continue to insist that unless a massive re-distribution of global wealth is immediately enacted, global warming will threaten every man woman and child on earth.
Americans can disagree on the extent of climate change and even question man's role in it. The issue at hand however, is the fact that the media, whose job is to report facts, has declined to do so. The media, with Fox News as the only exception, have bought into Dan Rather's "fake but accurate" view of the so-called 'global-warming' crisis.
Father Earth, Algore sums it up best: "This is not a political issue, or a scientific issue or a psychological issue it's a moral issue. If anything it's actually a spiritual issue." There you have it. If you don't agree with the unscientific 'consensus' than you're a really stupid, bad and immoral person. The left has spoken and the media agrees. Case closed.
Nancy Morgan is a columnist and news editor for RightBias.com and lives in South Carolina.
For any "Atlas Shrugged" fans out there, Ayn Rand weaves scientific "consensus-building" into the story...and this was 50 years ago...long before all this global warming alarm-ism. There's nothing new under the sun.
And I'm even angrier at people who don't pay any attention to the news, and don't read anything online outside of Facebook, than I am at the press.
There's a massive majority of the population who simply doesn't care if Global Warming is a scientific hoax, they don't care, they are True Believers in Global Warming, who cares that there's NO science to it?
I want the so-called scientists who perpetrated this eggregious fraud to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Someone who doesn't want the material to be seen, read and compared by the world! Guess the same people think if the world can't see it, similar to Obama's long form birth certificate, then the world can't prove that the data has been cooked!
The entire left and the media (excuse the redundancy) plans to totally ignore climategate. A little thing like the truth never bothered them.

Thank you so much. I’ve not seen John Stossel weigh in on global warming before.
He needs to be cited for that. Charge him an enormous amount of carbon credits for withholding fertilizer.
Well if it is proven that he lied to the people and betrayed this country and played on our fears, then his A$$ needs to be thrown in jail!
I agree with your anger 100%.
It’s incredibly frustrating.
There is NO issue that’s bigger than this right now.
Not any war, not any health-care bill. NOTHING.
Modern science has been around since Roger Bacon and there has NEVER been such a hoax committed by members of the scientific professions as this.
This is bigger than war, famine and revolution. And the media is ABSOLUTELY SILENT about it.
I’m very happy !
All those $26.00 2-packs of compact light bulbs and the folks to deliver them.....and the state to deliver them.....Now who wouldn’t want that?
the cop doesn't look too impressed either
The MSM looks as foolish as anyone about the hysteria it’s been spreading about global warming. Secondly, there are too many HUGE corporate interests, not the least of which is GE, who stand to make billions from this hoax. There’s enough money at stake to pull all the stops to prop up global warming. In fact, there’s enough money at stake to have people whacked. The corruption is so deep and so pervasive that eradicating it may be nigh impossible.
I couldn't come up with a short cop caption that would fit that space. How's this?
I think that’s his daughter Karenna, who coined the phrase ‘No controlling legal authority’ when Gore got caught dialing for dollars. She’s probably helping to cover her father’s posterior in this pic, as usual.
Wow. I didn’t know that. She doesn’t resemble her stupid father.
