Sen. James Inhofe Announces Climategate Investigation Ini The HOAX of Global Warming

Inhofe Announces Climategate Investigation

The publication of more than 1,000 private e-mails that climate change skeptics say proves the threat is exaggerated has prompted one key Republican senator to call for an investigation into their research.

In an interview with The Washington Times on Monday, Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) announced he would probe whether the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) "cooked the science to make this thing look as if the science was settled, when all the time of course we knew it was not."

"This thing is serious, you think about the literally millions of dollars that have been thrown away on some of this stuff that they came out with," Inhofe, the ranking member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, said during the interview.

He added that it was "interesting" that the e-mails surfaced only weeks before an important climate change summit would bring world leaders to Copenhagen.
Fueling Inhofe's concerns is last week's news that a blogger hacked into the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit (Cru) and published about 1,000 e-mails and more than 3,000 private documents relating to climate change.

Some of those communications disparaged climate change skeptics and their views, while others contained conversations about how to best portray climate change research.

Hiding evidence of global cooling

The Washington Times

Scientific progress depends on accurate and complete data. It also relies on replication. The past couple of days have uncovered some shocking revelations about the baloney practices that pass as sound science about climate change.

It was announced Thursday afternoon that computer hackers had obtained 160 megabytes of e-mails from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in England. Those e-mails involved communication among many scientific researchers and policy advocates with similar ideological positions all across the world. Those purported authorities were brazenly discussing the destruction and hiding of data that did not support global-warming claims.

ClimateGate Heats Up Global Warming Debate before Copenhagen

Heritage Foundation

1,000 emails and more than 3,000 other documents from the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University in the United Kingdom publicly revealed by a hacker, or allegedly an inside whistleblower, are rekindling the flame to the global warming debate just weeks before the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference where the United States will propose an emissions reduction target. A sample of what the emails exposed, which date back 13 years, includes:

“The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.”


“I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (i.e., from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.”


“I can’t see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report,” Jones writes. “Kevin and I will keep them out somehow — even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!”

Some have argued the quotes have been taken out of context while others say the context is clear as day. Other information was erased completely to prevent it from being obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. And others believe “that this is not a scandal so much as a window on real scientists working on a politicized issue.”

More recently, it was the Environmental Protection Agency’s suppression of three of its employees. First, the EPA suppressed an internal report from one of the agency’s own, 35-year analyst Alan Carlin - a scientist who specializes in climate change. His report warned that the science of climate change was dubious and that we shouldn’t pass laws that will raise energy prices, hurt American families and hobble the nation’s economy without a full understanding of climate change. Later, the EPA suppressed a video entitled, “The Huge Mistake” by Laurie Williams and Allan Zabel, two lawyers currently working at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – a video that says cap and trade will not work.

It will be interesting to see how ClimateGate plays out, but Superfreakonomics author Stephen Dubner sums up the current state of things:

“If you are a fan of science, this is a pretty grim day. If you are a fierce partisan on either side of the global-warming issue, you are either gnashing your teeth or clicking your heels. If you are a government official heading to Copenhagen soon for the climate summit, you are probably wondering what the hell you’re supposed to think now.”

RUSH Limbaugh discussed it on his show yesterday:

RUSH: Do you know that the Fox News Channel is the only television outlet to report on ClimateGate? The rest of the media is totally ignoring it. The news keeps breaking on this, on the hoax of man-made global warming.

This whole hoax has been fully exposed. These people were hiding data. They were hiding data from a Freedom of Information request. There are e-mails from the guy that ran the place, this university in England, to all of his contributors and all the members of his committee: "Don't release any information. I'll delete it rather than release it, if I have to." They made up numbers. They totally ignored numbers that disproved global cooling. This is a giant, giant, giant scam. It deserves a huge investigation. And Obama, if he was worth his salt, would be the first one demanding it because this has been allowed to hijack an international agenda that is oriented toward further fleecing of the United States.

We know that the lead place, this Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University -- which is the number one advisor and communicator with the IPCC, which is the UN's climate-control crowd.

We know that data was made up to advance the notion that man is causing the climate to warm. We know that data was purposely left out that hides the fact that the earth is cooling. Even on this bunch's website, they cannot hide the fact that temperatures have not increased the last ten years, and they've had to come up with some of the most irrational, illogical explanations for it. "Well, it's the ocean currents out there. It could be El Nino or La Nina. A lot of stuff is going on," but they specifically ignore anything related to the sun! And without the sun, there's nothing. How you can ignore the sun in the whole concept of warming is idiocy. But the point is this: We have now the facts. I don't care how it happened, whistle-blower or a hacker.

Remember, all of this information was subject to Freedom of Information requests, and they were deleting information that would harm them. They were deleting information and fighting the release. So it's a hoax.

The Indian prime minister is talking about moving fast on Copenhagen. Copenhagen is where they hope to come up with the next Kyoto treaty to punish the leading energy producers and the leading economies of the world. Copenhagen ought to be discredited! It ought to be canceled. There's no reason for it. There's no reason for anybody to advance any piece of legislation aimed at reversing something that is not happening.

What does it take for people to understand it is a hoax?

But if you live in The Universe of Lies, the last thing that you are governed by is the truth. The last thing you are governed by is reality. The only thing that matters to you is the advancement of your political agenda. And you tell yourself in The Universe of Lies that your agenda is so important the world will not survive without it and therefore you could lie, cheat, steal, destroy whoever you have to to get your agenda done -- because your opponents are eeevil, and in fighting eeevil, anything goes. There are no rules when you're in a fight with the Devil. And that is why in The Universe of Lies in this country, those of us who live in The Universe of Reality are the true enemy. We are the real enemy.

It's not Hugo Chavez, it's not Russia, it's not Iran, it's not Al-Qaeda, it's not Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. We are the enemy because we stand not only in the way of their agenda, but we also expose them daily for what they are: Frauds in the media, in academia, in science, and in government. In the old days before there was a New Media, whatever the government did was considered pure. The media was considered pure. Science was considered pure. Academia was considered pure. Now millions of Americans have had their suspicions of decades confirmed that all of these institutions are frauds, that they put forth a face and an image that hides their truth because it must.

"We found this nugget among the more than 3,000 emails and documents released last week after CRU's servers were hacked and messages among some of the world's most influential climatologists were published on the Internet. The 'two MMs' are almost certainly Stephen McIntyre and Ross McKitrick, two Canadians who have devoted years to seeking the raw data and codes used in climate graphs and models, then fact-checking the published conclusions -- a painstaking task that strikes us as a public and scientific service. Mr. Jones did not return requests for comment and the university said it could not confirm that all the e-mails were authentic, though it acknowledged its servers were hacked. Yet even a partial review of the e-mails is highly illuminating."

The Journal goes on to provide more information and excerpts from the e-mails. They conclude thus: "For the record, when we've asked Mr. Mann in the past about the charge that he and his colleagues suppress opposing views, he has said he 'won't dignify that question with a response.' Regarding our most recent queries about the hacked emails, he says he 'did not manipulate any data in any conceivable way,' but he otherwise refuses to answer specific questions. For the record, too, our purpose isn't to gainsay the probity of Mr. Mann's work, much less his right to remain silent.

"However, we do now have hundreds of emails that give every appearance of testifying to concerted and coordinated efforts by leading climatologists to fit the data to their conclusions while attempting to silence and discredit their critics.

Dig Through Them Here: Alleged CRU E-mails

RUSH: The president of the United States has just said in an internationally televised press conference that he is going to continue seeking a resolution to a problem that doesn't exist. There is no man-made global warming. But it doesn't matter because he exists in the Universe of Lies. And man-made global warming is only a means to an end to him. It is simply a way to once again chip away at the size of this country and the wealth of this country and to make sure that he is able to enact legislation that will allow him to raise everyone's taxes so that he can begin even more redistribution of wealth.

Algore's books, his movies, his Photoshopped pictures of the earth? All lies. They're not real and based on a hoax -- and they did not get "scammed." Everybody involved knows it's a hoax. They are knowingly perpetrating it. Gore knows it, Phil Jones knows it, Michael Mann knows it, anybody involved in this knows they are perpetrating a hoax. Nobody got "fooled" here. None of the leaders, anyway. You might have had some rogue little scientist out there who got confused about it. But real scientists, the ones who should be respected are the ones who questioned this. That's what real scientists used to do. But we have political scientists masquerading as science scientists, advancing an agenda that they know is a lie, just like the people behind this health care bill know that everything they're saying about it is not true.

It will not "lower costs;" it will not "improve access;" it will not "improve quality." It will raise taxes! It will force you to give up freedom and put you in jail if you resist. Nothing is real about health care. Nothing is real in the cap-and-trade legislation. Nothing is real about the stimulus package. Nothing is real about the TARP bailout. All of it is fraudulent. It's all a hoax perpetrated by the left knowing full well it's a hoax, dressed up as something "compassionate" and an "emergency" required to save something, either jobs or the entire financial system of the world or whatever other threat will wipe us all out tomorrow if we don't act tonight. It's all a hoax! Everything the Democrat Party is behind today is a fraud and a lie aimed at separating you from three things: Your freedom, your property and your money.

They will not allow that to happen, and a lot of these e-mails are about this guy, McIntyre -- and a buddy of his named McKitrick -- about keeping this information from everybody even if they have to delete it. Meanwhile, the Kyoto protocol and the upcoming meeting in Copenhagen is about carbon trade emissions, cap and tax, get-rid-of-your-SUV, everything! Incandescent lightbulbs being replaced by compact fluorescent! Everything about the environment has been a total fraud and a fake. You do not need to give up your SUV. You do not need to start running around getting washing machines that front load that stink up your house. You don't have to get rid of your incandescent lightbulbs. You do not have to run around and drive a hybrid to save the earth because there's nothing you can do to save it if it's in trouble, which it's not. We had a call and the guy may be right: This may be as big as proving that the earth was round when the "consensus" of scientists said it was flat. Hell, there still is a Flat Earth Society out there.

Cap and Trade FREAK Barack Obama sought Tuesday to boost hopes of a landmark deal at the Copenhagen climate summit, as a new report showed the crisis facing the planet is deeper than previously thought.

Obama said the world was "one step closer to a successful outcome in Copenhagen," as he hosted key developing nation India at the White House a week after returning from top global polluter China.

"It's also essential that all countries do what is necessary to reach a strong operational agreement that will confront the threat of climate change while serving as a stepping-stone to a legally binding treaty," he added at a joint news conference with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Obama’s Science Czar John Holdren involved in unwinding “Climategate” scandal

Canadian Free Press

Lift up a rock and another snake comes slithering out from the ongoing University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit (CRU) scandal, now riding as “Climategate”.

Obama Science Czar John Holdren is directly involved in CRU’s unfolding Climategate scandal. In fact, according to files released by a CEU hacker or whistleblower, Holdren is involved in what Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist Canadian climatologist Dr. Tim Ball terms “a truculent and nasty manner that provides a brief demonstration of his lack of understanding, commitment on faith and willingness to ridicule and bully people”.

“The files contain so much material that it is going to take some time t o put it all in context,” says Ball. “However, enough is already known to underscore their explosive nature. It is already clear the entire claims and positions of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are based on falsified manipulated material and is therefore completely compromised.
“The fallout will be extensive as material continues to emerge. Reputations of the scientists involved are already destroyed, however fringe players will continue to be identified and their reputations destroyed or sullied.”

While the mainstream media is bending into pretzels to keep the scandal under the rug, Climategate is already the biggest scientific scandal in history because of the global policy implications.

A throwback to the intro of the television series Dragnet, “Ladies and Gentlemen: “The story you are about to hear is true, only the names have been changed to protect the innocent”, the innocent in Climategate have already been thrown to the ravening wolves.

“There is a multitude of small but frightening stories in the massive files,” Ball writes. “For example I’ve known solar physicists Sallie Baliunas and Willie Soon for a long time. I’ve published articles with Willie and enjoyed extensive communication. I was on advisory committees with them when Sallie suddenly and politely withdrew from the fray. I don’t know if the following events were contributing factors but it is likely.
“Baliunas and Soon were authors of excellent work confirming the existence of the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) from a multitude of sources. Their work challenged attempts to get rid of the MWP because it contradicted the claim by the proponents of anthropogenic global warming (AGW). Several scientists challenged the claim that the latter part of the 20th century was the warmest ever. They knew the claim was false, many warmer periods occurred in the past. Michael Mann ‘got rid’ of the MWP with his production of the hockey stick, but Soon and Baliunas were problematic. What better than have a powerful academic destroy their credibility for you? Sadly, there are always people who will do the dirty work.”

Indeed, Holdren’s emails show how sincere scientists would be made into raw “entertainment”.

Wild Thing's comment........

Oh how I wish we had more Conservatives in Congress right now. As it is, we will have a hard time getting anything done to stop this FRAUD!

We also have proof now why Gore does not allow debate about his Global warming BS.

Obama and this Administration and the words traitor and treason go side by side. And Obama and the MSM want to ignore ClimateGate so they can push Global Communism forward.

There is an old law that states: Always draw your curves, first , then plot your plot your data points to fit the curve. Works every time.

This is sophmoric, cheating and rearraging the data to fit what they want for an outcome. But to have it come out like this is GOLD.

It's funny how The Bush Ranch was more green that Fat Albert's Tennessee home which uses more electricity than the whole state could in a month! He stands to become the first global billionaire off the backs of everyone who didn't make him President. He has his own cable channel (which I have blocked from my satellite dish)and doesn't practice what he preaches. I found out I'm pretty green already. On Top Chef Gail Simmons talked about thawing the meat in the frig before cooking it straight from the freezer. Well, heck, I've been doing that for years!

Gorebal warming, cap and trade are all steps towards the NWO. Enough allright allready.

Posted by: Bob A at November 25, 2009 10:28 AM

Once again the great Al Gore has been exposed as a lying fraud. First Love Story, then the Internet, and now this.

How this man continues to remain credible is only due to the fact that the media chooses to ignore this latest boondoggle.

It is going to be interesting to watch how Barbara(don't call me maam)Boxer's committee is going to spin this. If I'm not mistaken, Sen Imhof is on that committee. There will, no doubt, be some interesting debates.

The Congress knew of the lack of credibility, I'm sure and were hoping to get the legislation passed and into law before any of this came out.

LOL Mark, Bode on a logarithmic scale, it's that gain on the phase-shifts. 2010 is gettin' damned close and the shifty frigging worms are squirming. I'm off to find my cattle probe, what the hell for? It's all posturing, Inhofe has no orchises.

Posted by: Jack at November 25, 2009 11:23 AM

With this out and being played around the GOOD media, Obama has said, this means nothing, they are still going to go ahead with their plan to destroy with his phony communist global warming agenda. In other words the man-child is saying don't confuse me with the facts.

Stewart Varney also had on Ed Bagley Jr. and Stewart laid the phony global warming on him, I thought ole' Ed would throw an embolism, he was so angry.

Posted by: Mark at November 25, 2009 12:28 PM

The climate change scare is just a means of controlling Americans and their money. A hoax pushed by Marxists and globalists. As BobA states, the New World Order. The climae scare is unravelling for these perpretators.

Lynn, isn't it funny how they say things
like you said that you are doing already.

Bob A., that is exactly what it is.

SEAN, good point, your right all three of Gores
"First Love Story, then the Internet, and now this."

Mark LOL that is funny about ed bagley
doing that. heh heh He is a total nut case
on this stuff.

Tom,yes and they sure have been pushing it.
Now they will get a fight about it and I hope
it can be stopped oh that would be so
