Lord Moncktonís summary of Climategate and its issues
Watts Up With That? ^ | 1 December 2009 | Christopher Monckton of Brenchley

THE WHISTLE BLOWS FOR TRUTH

The whistleblower deep in the basement of one of the ugly, modern tower-blocks of the dismal, windswept University of East Anglia could scarcely have timed it better.

In less than three weeks, the world’s governing class – its classe politique – would meet in Copenhagen, Denmark, to discuss a treaty to inflict an unelected and tyrannical global government on us, with vast and unprecedented powers to control all once-free world markets and to tax and regulate the world’s wealthier nations for its own enrichment: in short, to bring freedom, democracy, and prosperity to an instant end worldwide, at the stroke of a pen, on the pretext of addressing what is now known to be the non-problem of manmade “global warming”.

The unnamed hero of ‘Climategate’, after months of work gathering emails, computer code, and data, quietly sent a 61-megabyte compressed file from one of the university’s servers to an obscure public message-board on the internet, with a short covering note to the effect that the climate was too important to keep the material secret, and that the data from the University would be available for a short time only. He had caught the world’s politico-scientific establishment green-handed. Yet his first attempts to reveal the highly-profitable fraud and systematic corruption at the very heart of the UN’s climate panel and among the scientists most prominent in influencing it’s prejudiced and absurdly doom-laden reports had failed. He had made the mistake of sending the data-file to the mainstream news media, which had also profited for decades by fostering the “global warming” scare, and by generally denying anyone who disagreed with the official viewpoint any platform.

The whistleblower’s data file revealed, for the first time, the innermost workings of the tiny international clique of climate scientists, centered on the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia, that has been the prime mover in telling the world that it is warming at an unprecedented rate, and that humankind is responsible.

REVEALED: THE ABJECT CORRUPTION OF CLIMATE SCIENCE

The gallant whistleblower now faces a police investigation at the instigation of the University authorities desperate to look after their own and to divert allegations of criminality elsewhere. His crime? He had revealed what many had long suspected:

A tiny clique of politicized scientists, paid by unscientific politicians with whom they were financially and politically linked, were responsible for gathering and reporting data on temperatures from the palaeoclimate to today’s climate. The “Team”, as they called themselves, were bending and distorting scientific data to fit a nakedly political story-line profitable to themselves and congenial to the governments that, these days, pay the bills for 99% of all scientific research.

But, we still need to reduce it to a Bumper Sticker for the truly stupid. Obama is sure to help. After Copenhagen we can simply say Obama lied and the planet died. Of course it will have to be printed on recycled paper with planet friendly inks.

While this is true, let's not overlook the fame and adulation issue.

Climate scientists, till quite recently, were not famous, weren't interviewed on TV and by magazines, etc. Now they are celebrities (if not deniers). Hot environmentalist chicks want to go to bed with them.

We've recently been seeing the lengths people will go to get their 15 minutes. Why assume scientists are any more resistant to this temptation?

That's what so horrible about this scandal. The whole point of transparency in the scientific method is to ensure that the truth will come out EVEN IF individual scientists lie and cheat. These guys have corrupted the system to the point where it isn't even possible to do this.

I wish I could draw like “The Far Side” guy. I’d have one scientist blindfolded and groping around the lab while a group of lab coated colleagues snicker and another scientist says, “You’re getting warmer, warmer, now colder, colder, really really colder . . . “

No more Global Warming!

No more Climate Change.

The new buzz words are Ocean Acidification caused by increased CO2. Some bimbo at today's hearings stated that the oceans have had a "30% increase in acidity since the start of the industrial revolution." She went on to say that this was the greatest increase in ocean acidification in the last "20,000,000 years."

I guessing that volcanos lead to ocean “acidification.” I’m for a law prohibiting volcanic eruptions.

Gee, you mean we can’t just believe those climate geniuses like Al Gore, Prince Charles and the Hollywood crowd who assured us that the earth was at a tipping point and we had just months to stop, driving our SUVs, heating our homes, having children and using toilet paper or the planet would be doomed?

In a sane world, the climatologists' scandal would be front page news, and Lord Monckton's efforts would long ago been given more attention.

So Which Story is Sinister Media Pursuing?

It's not as if Tiger, in his possible error, had been aiding and abetting those on the verge of enslaving the entire planet.

Hello, “CRU Team”? I submit you the following observation:

Most “carbonites” are carnivores... and you vegemites are now raw meat! Prepare your selves for extinction... Boys, I hear the dinner bell ringing.

Ocean Acidification is another eco-crisis manufactured by left-wing control freaks.

The very term is misleading. The ocean is not acidic, it is basic. Between 1751 and 1994 surface ocean pH is estimated to have decreased from approximately 8.179 to 8.104 (Source: Wikipedia). So it is not acidic, it is simply becoming less basic. The percent change is -0.91% not 30%. (Your bimbo at the hearings was lying - big surprise)

The threat, they say, is that organisms that secrete carbonate shells will dissolve and die off. Save the corals!

However, recent studies have shown that as pH rises, calcifying organisms simply increase their rate of calcification to compensate. So, nature adapts as it always has.

I just read something about that in the last couple of days, but couldn't find the link so I left it out of my posts.

Thanks

Thank you so much for posting this.

Lord Monckton (who was scientific adviser to PM Margaret Thatcher - herself a scientist) is trying so hard to get the world's attention to this global warming hoax. He has repeatedly tried to engage Al Gore in a debate - the latter has declined.

Saw him on Glenn Beck's show, where he warned about the consequences of this Treaty of Copenhagen, due to be enacted in five days time.

Sure wish Rush and Hannity would interview him.
