Skip to comments.'Fakegate': Climate Change Fanatics Wage War on Dissenters

Why would Dr. Peter Gleick, president of the Pacific Institute, a MacArthur Foundation Fellow, and chairman of an American Geophysical Union task force on "scientific ethics and integrity," break the law to engage in a smear campaign against a small think-tank called The Heartland Institute that resulted in "Fakegate"?
As Alan Caruba related in the opening paragraph of his article published on Tuesday, April 3rd, titled "Fatetgate: The War on Science," "[g]enerations of Americans have been raised to venerate science and those who have enhanced and extended our lives through its application. The rise of environmentalism, however, has generated a war on science, first by distorting it, and then by propagandizing the 'findings', studies' and resulting claims based on them."
The Heartland Institute, as a leading voice, led the effort to debunk the hoax through its sponsorship of six international conferences featuring scientists and others who presented papers demonstrating "that 0.038 percent of CO2 in the atmosphere had little or no "greenhouse" effect on the Earth's climate or weather events."
Heartland's six International Conferences on Climate Change (ICCC) attracted scientists worldwide, who employed science rather than pseudo-science in their presentations. Among these scientists were such notables as Lord Monckton, special adviser to former Margaret Thatcher, and former Czech President Vaclav Klaus. Monckton and Klaus were featured guests at Heartland's Fourth International Conference on Climate Change in May of 2010.
An economist by training, Klaus made the following statement in 2011:
I'm convinced that after years of studying the phenomenon, global warming is not the real issue of temperature. That is the issue of a new ideology or a new religion. A religion or climate change or a religion of global warming. This is a religion which tell us that the people are responsible for the current, very small increase...

These clowns will just not let it go will they?
These types are RELENTLESS, they are zealots.
This is just a small fraction of what these people are obsessed about.
While everybody else is in work or caring for their families these NUTS work 24/7 to undermine everything we hold dear.
This is their one shot at money and power. Without “climate change” they are doomed to lives of mediocrity.
The leftists are experts at riding a dead horse by pretending it's still alive and proclaiming it to still be so.
Kinda' like the Monty Python "Dead Parrot" skit.
"This is an EX-parrot!"
Can Zimmerman sue?u
Sorry. Don’t know how that got on this thread...
I am currently reading this book and highly recommend it. In first chapters he completely destroys Al Gore and his ilk with facts and points out the many, many falsehoods in Gore's "Documentary". The author was a guest on Red Eye one night last week and so I downloaded his book.
Why Manipulate the Tragedy of Trayvon Martin? You have to read past the 1st paragraph. Just ignore it. There are awful stats.
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.
Thanks for the post and the ping...passing it on.

He’s a Norwegian Blue. He’s pining for the fjords.
There is a incredible amount of money involved here, we are talking hundred of billions of dollars, if not trillions of dollars, that the global warming thieves and liars are trying to steal from people...No they will not let it go although and fortunately in the real world the fools have largely lost their war but they are too delusional to know and hence the continuing barking, frustration, and anger from their side...
Thanks for the posts. About a year ago, my email servers were attacked by Australian MMGW Alarmists. FTTH.
