Ice Capades – New Iceberg Not What It is “Cracked Up” To Be

Professor Andreas Muenchow became a media celebrity this week with his quote about an iceberg in Greenland being “four times the size of Manhattan.” This iceberg has become a poster child for global warming, even though a much larger one broke off the same glacier 50 years ago.

What the press is not widely reporting is that Professor Muenchow also said.....

CLIMATEGATE: A Welcome Round of Layoffs

It wasn’t all that long ago that the Chicago Climate Exchange was expected to be the next big thing. As the market for indulgences carbon credits developed – and especially as cap and trade took effect – millions of people were going to begin trading credits on the exchange. Two of the biggest investors in the exchange were Al Gore (through Generation Investment Management) and Barack Obama (through the Joyce Foundation). As the Examiner points out however, the market for carbon credits hasn’t really developed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Al Gore and Barack Obama were going to get rich on your backs through the fraud named "Human Caused Global Warming." Trillions for the bankrupted US GOvernment and billikons for the carbon traders were on the line, with you footing all the bills.

For the moment, they have been stopped, and we can count coup for this one.

But rest assured the snake oil salesmen will be back with this or another fraud to strip you of what is left of your wealth and your freedom, for fraud is all they know. Continued vigilance (and continued support for those websites fighting against the fraud ) are needed to keep Americans free.

Global warming lies, damn lies and easy rebuttals

Record Kan. corn crop forecasted !!!!!!
Kansas farmers are expected to harvest the biggest corn crop in the state's history this year.

The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service on Thursday forecast corn production in Kansas at 629.2 million bushels. That would surpass last year's record crop of 598.3 million bushels.

Kansas growers planted 4.7 million acres in corn this year, the highest planted acreage for corn in the state since 1936.

Kansas is expected to produce by far more bushels of corn this season than wheat. The 2010 wheat crop is pegged at 369 million bushels, down less than 1 percent from last year. The wheat crop was grown on 8.2 million acres, down 600,000 acres from a year ago.

Is Al Gore Sane Enough to Stand Trial?

Is it a simple kind of Napoleon complex? Or is there something psychologically deeper? Will he be allowed to stand trial if Senate investigations lead to indictments?

I have reflected on one of his commentaries that I saw on YouTube. He had become frightened of the carbon dioxide in the soil and what might happen if it gets out. Carbon dioxide – CO2 – the stuff plants need to live and grow – stuff that’s been around since before the beginning of life – stuff life can’t do without.

Sierra Club gets ‘asses kicked’ again today

Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune said “clean energy” advocates are getting their “asses kicked” inside the Beltway and is calling on environmental groups to rethink their strategies following the collapse of climate change legislation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Legitimate environmental groups hopped on board the Al Gore AGW wagon because it meant easy money and now that Climategate has brought the Warmistas crashing down, the real environmental movement is sadly getting dragged down with it.

NASA Data Worse Than Climate-Gate Data, Space Agency Admits

Global warming critics call this a crucial blow to advocates' arguments that minor flaws in the "Climate-gate" data are unimportant, since all the major data sets arrive at the same conclusion -- that the Earth is getting warmer. But there's a good reason for that, the skeptics say: They all use the same data.

CLIMATEGATE II - US Government in Massive New Global Warming Scandal – NOAA Disgraced

Of major concern here is whether the false data has been fed into climate models ascertaining the broader temperature averages for the entire United States. The alleged response from NOAA as shown in the comments below this article, indicates evasiveness by Chuck Pistis, NOAA Program Coordinator, in answering the question. Why so?

Big Green Lies are Imploding

As World War Two wound down, in 1945 Italian partisans found Benito Mussolini and his girlfriend trying to flee to Switzerland. They shot both of them and then hung them by their heels in the Piazza Loreto in Milan. He had led the National Fascist Party and had been the 40th prime minister from 1922 until being deposed, jailed, and rescued by his pal Adolf Hitler.

I was reminded of this when I read a list of 1970 Earth Day predictions because, sooner or later, lies implode and the liars must be held accountable.

Satellite Failure Means Decade of Global Warming Data Doubtful

Caught in the center of the controversy is the beleaguered taxpayer funded National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). NOAA’s Program Coordinator, Chuck Pistis has now confirmed that the fast spreading story on the respected climate skeptic blog is true.

However, NOAA spokesman, Program Coordinator, Chuck Pistis declined to state how long the fault might have gone undetected. Nor would the shaken spokesman engage in speculation as to the damage done to the credibility of a decade’s worth of temperature readings taken from the problematic ‘NOAA-16’ satellite.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember how the Warmistas have been screaming for you to ignore the cold weather you see right in front of you, because they had data fro a satellite that "proved" 2010 was the hottest year on record?

Well...

Seems somebody was taking a closer look at the satellite maps which showed the Great Lakes temperature up by about 10-15 degrees F, and spotted a data point indicating water temperature well above boiling! NOAA has now been forced to admit that the satellite has a problem, and has been consistently indicating higher temperatures than actually exist, by about 10-15 degrees F. NOAA has removed all the accumulated data for the last decade from their servers, and of course, every global warming alarmism based on that data is not invalidated!

Gore concedes on climate this year

Gore said “the government was not working “as our founders intended it to” and laid more blame at the feet of fossil fuel interests who conducted a “cynical coordinated campaign” with “unprecedented funding” and “who have spent hundreds of millions of dollars just on lobbying.” He criticized “polluters” for “dumping global warming pollution into the atmosphere like it was an open sewer.”

Gore blamed the skeptics for “attacking science and scientists.” “They [the skeptics] did damage and cast doubt,” Gore said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, the fact that Gore is saying the fight against Man-Bear-Pig is over for "this year" tells us he will be back next year, as does his scapegoating of everyone around him rather than admitting the whole thing was a very expensive contrived hoax in the first place.

Bottom line: The Warmistas will be back! This is no time to quit pointing out the frauds wherever they are being promoted.

History of climate gets 'erased' online

A new report reveals a British scientist and Wikipedia administrator rewrote climate history, editing more than 5,000 unique articles in the online encyclopedia to cover traces of a medieval warming period – something Climategate scientists saw as a major roadblock in the effort to spread the global warming message.

CRU cleared of wrong doing? NOT: Parliamentary Trickery

"their suggestion that Jones and others were doing nothing more than “discarding data known to be erroneous” is simply absurd. There was no testimony to the Committee (nor has it ever been suggested) that the tree ring data was measured incorrectly or that the data was “erroneous” – the data is what it is. The tree ring data goes down instead of up – but that doesn’t make it “erroneous”. It only means that the data is a bad proxy – something that was concealed from IPCC readers. It is discouraging to read such bilge."

US Government in Massive New Global Warming Scandal – NOAA Disgraced

But our intrepid anonymous whistleblower wasn’t done yet. He pointed out that Egg Harbor, Wisconsin, really got cooking this July 4th around 9:59AM, according to NOAA and Coast Watch.

Bummed about the Senate dragging its feet on climate? There's a new report out from the Presidential Climate Action Partnership that outlines five big things the Obama administration can do on climate before the next big United Nations climate meeting in Cancun this November.

1. "Work with states and local governments to create a national roadmap to the clean energy economy."

2. "Declare a war on energy waste."

3. "Begin reinventing national transportation policy."

4. "Eliminate fossil energy subsidies under the Administration's control."

5. "Establish ecosystem restoration as a climate action strategy."

ICLEI: Invasive UN Treaty in 600 American Cities

There are over 600 US cities that are members of ICLEI, the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, now known as Local Governments for Sustainability. ICLEI institutes the UN Convention on Biological Diversity treaty that was withdrawn from a vote on the Senate floor in 1994, so the treaty, designed for UN control, is being implemented in cities.

Here's the description of the program from ICLEI's own website:

Massive ice island breaks off Greenland

Environmentalists say ice melt is being caused by global warming with Arctic temperatures in the 1990s reaching their warmest level of any decade in at least 2,000 years, according to a study published in 2009.

Current trends could see the Arctic Ocean become ice free in summer months within decades, researchers predict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It didn't melt, it cracked off, and if you stop and think about it,. ice is ALWAYS breaking off the edges of the ice masses. Or did you think space aliens dropped off that iceberg that E.J. ran the Titanic into?

and the above claim is in error. The Earth was much warmer during the Medieval warm period than today.

Globalists Race To Enforce Criminal Carbon Tax

Both Strong and Gore come from the Club of Rome clique, who in their 1991 Report, “The First Global Revolution” openly admitted how they were planning to exploit the contrived hoax of global warming in order to further their agenda.

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.,” they wrote.

If you were wondering why the global warming cult was still pushing their hoax even as scientists admit the Earth has actually cooled since 1995, this is the motive. Trillions of dollars scammed from the public and divvied up amongst the cronies are at stake! Trillions of dollars in carbon taxes and billions of dollars in fees are the prize for which the warmistas will lie, cheat, and steal!

The Temperature Decline That Dare Not Speak Its Name

Let’s look at the NOAA claim that the surface temperature increased .11° C during 2000-2009. Although they did everything possible to hide this information from the public, media, politicians, and even fellow scientists, by the late 2000s even die-hard alarmists were eventually forced to accept that the surface temperature record showed no warming as of the late 1990s, and some cooling as of about 2002. In other words, overall, for the first decade of the 21st century, there was either no warming, or no warming and even some cooling.

A primer for disproving IPCC’s theory of man made global warming using observed temperature data

Comparison of the claims by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of 1) “Most of the observed increase in global average temperatures since the mid-20th century is very likely” man made, and 2) “For the next two decades a warming rate of 0.2 deg C per decade is projected” are shown in this article not to be supported by the observed data, thus disproving IPCC’s theory of man made global warming.

Climategate inquiry glosses over the facts

The tone of the Climategate inquiries was set by Britain's parliamentary inquiry. With an election looming, the parliamentary committee could only hold one day of hearings, and found that the scientists involved had not attempted to mislead people.

Yet the hearings did not include testimony from the most severe critics of the hockey stick graphic, such as Canadians Steve McIntyre and Ross McKitrick, who could have explained exactly why the e-mails did suggest impropriety.

The parliamentary inquiry was also assured by the UEA that the quality of the science would be reviewed by another inquiry to be headed by Lord Oxburgh. Yet Lord Oxburgh's panel handed down a short report which did not examine the quality of the science at all.

Climategate: A Reality Check on Climate Change

Those people still supporting AGW (anthropogenic global warming) are dependent on funding to support their current positions. That funding is in turn dependent in the continuation of faith that AGW (anthropogenic global warming) is correct. After all, when Galileo proved that the Earth Orbited the Sun, funding for continued research into epicycles vanished abruptly, along with tenures and the value of every degree issued in the field of Epicycles.

Climategate: reinstating Phil Jones is good news – the CRU brand remains toxic

As I pointed out earlier this week, the AGW lobby has recently shown signs of belatedly getting its PR act together, of assuming a false humility, of being less dogmatic, in an effort to win round public opinion. It is an attempt to turn over a new leaf – on the Dave Cameron model, to detoxify the brand. It is, of course, a ploy to recover lost credibility and impose upon the public more effectively. Putting Phil Jones back at the centre of the picture completely wrecks that rehabilitation scheme. It is as if Dave appointed Lady Thatcher to oversee his “compassionate Conservatism” agenda.

Climategate Investigations Are Arrogant Insults

There were two British investigations into the behavior of scientists at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia (UEA) exposed in leaked emails. Both reports provide no answers, no explanations and are only telling for what they did not ask or do and how they were manipulated. The blatant level of cover up is frightening. These are acts by people who believe they are unaccountable because they have carried out the greatest scam in history with impunity. The degree of cover up in both cases is an arrogant in-your-face statement that we are the power and are not answerable to anyone. Their cover up almost belittles the ones they are investigating.

Climategate Whitewash Complete: Third Inquiry Clears Everyone Involved

A third and final inquiry into the climategate scandal has exonerated everyone involved and declared that there is no question over the science behind manmade global warming – even though, like its predecessors, it has not investigated the science.

The so called “independent” inquiry into scientists at The University of East Anglia’s Climate research Unit found that “Their rigor and honesty as scientists are not in doubt”.

It further noted “We did not find any evidence of behavior that might undermine the conclusions of the IPCC.”

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY

Human Caused Global Warming is not being researched; it is being promoted. Al Gore and his fellow investors have spent over a hundred million dollars in creating a crisis of human-caused global warming out of (quite literally) thin air. They are not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. They expect to reap billions in profits from the trading of Carbon Credits, a "license to pollute" available for a price and subject to brokerage fees. One of the people Al Gore relied on to create this scheme was Ken Lay, late of ENRON, aka the Crooked "E". Al Gore plans to use Carbon Dioxide to do to the world what Ken Lay did to California using electricity; loot the people!

Sneaky, bullying, self-pitying Climategate scientists write to Sir Muir Russell inquiry begging: 'Make it a whitewash hat trick!'

Here is a summary of what they urge in the letter, which you can read in full at Bishop Hill. (Hat tip: Nick Mabbs)

1. There should be a cosy arrangement where corrupt, parti-pris scientists should be free to carry on behaving as badly as they like without any risk of their skulduggery being exposed by awkward public investigations. Private emails in which, say, they gloat about the deaths of climate sceptics, fantasise about physical violence against sceptics, plot how to misuse public funds, plot how to discredit scientists who legitimately disagree with them, plot how to shut down journals which don’t act as their amen corner, etc, should remain private.

2. The Muir Russell inquiry should continue to promulgate the great Climate Change lie.

IPCC consensus on climate change was phoney, says IPCC insider

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change misled the press and public into believing that thousands of scientists backed its claims on manmade global warming, according to Mike Hulme, a prominent climate scientist and IPCC insider. The actual number of scientists who backed that claim was “only a few dozen experts,” he states in a paper for Progress in Physical Geography, co-authored with student Martin Mahony.

“Claims such as ‘2,500 of the world’s leading scientists have reached a consensus that human activities are having a significant influence on the climate’ are disingenuous,” the paper states unambiguously, adding that they rendered “the IPCC vulnerable to outside criticism.”

But on the day in which Britain’s new Prime Minister announced in the Queen’s speech that one of his government’s main goals is to “combat climate change”, it’s perhaps just as well to remind ourselves of the kind of junk science and misinformation that is inspiring his green policies.

Lord Oxburgh himself is linked to various commercial interests which make money from climate change, from wind farms to carbon trading. None of the panel he worked with on his report were climate “sceptics”; and one, Dr Kerry Emanuel, is an outspoken advocate of man-made global warming. Even so, it was surprising to see just how superficial their inquiry turned out to be, based on two brief visits to the CRU and on reading 11 scientific papers produced by the research unit in the past 24 years, chosen in consultation with the Royal Society (which is itself fanatical in promotion of warming orthodoxy).

IPCC Report Card

BACKGROUND
United Nations countries belong to an organization called the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which publishes a report every six years. Often referred to as the "climate bible" these reports are relied on by governments around the world.

The latest was released in 2007. Sometimes called the AR4 (the Fourth Assessment Report), it contains 44 chapters and is nearly 3,000 pages long. Written by people organized into teams - Working Group 1, 2 and 3 - it consists of three smaller reports bundled into one.

Well, we all knew it would be a second whitewash of CRU and its climate alarmist pseudo-data; but even the most hard-headed sceptics among us probably thought that Lord Oxburgh’s inquiry would be a tad more sophisticated in its brushwork, that it would make some effort to persuade rather than patronise, that its bland conclusions would be a little less blatant and in-your-face.

FLASHBACK - Climategate: Faster and Faster, the Dominos Fall

The Climategate files were made public just a month ago, and the email messages that were revealed have already had real impact. The emails show us scientists being petty and political, even corrupt. Suppressing dissenting science and perhaps even violating the law to prevent data from being shared with the rest of the world. They show us people with failings, egos against egos. But the emails themselves aren’t enough to call the overall science of CO2-driven, human-caused climate change into question.

CLIMATEGATE - NASA Data Worse Than Climate-Gate Data, Space Agency Admits

E-mail messages obtained by a Freedom of Information Act request reveal that NASA concluded that its own climate
findings were inferior to those maintained by both the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) -- the scandalized source of the leaked Climate-gate e-mails -- and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Climatic Data Center.

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary." -- H.L. Mencken (1918)

The global warming cult is back with the spring, with a fresh bottle of snake oil to sell you!

'Climategate': Parliament Backs the Science, if Not the Scientists

"Within our limited inquiry and the evidence we took, the scientific reputation of Professor Jones and CRU remains intact.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hardly surprising. The British Government, as desperate for carbon tax money as anyone else, held just one day of hearings and did not allow any critics of the AGW science to speak.

"Fabrication" or "Lie" in the IPCC AR4 WGI

Ross McKitrick, an economist at the University of Guelph, has written an interesting and troubling essay about his misadventures in trying to correct via publication in the peer reviewed literature a statement in the IPCC AR4 WGI report that he characterizes as a "fabrication" or a "lie" (here as a PDF). Whatever you might think about Professor McKitrick or his academic work, the accuracy of his claim that the IPCC published an obvious misrepresentation of his work should be without doubt, as you can read for yourself in his essay. The misrepresentation is straightforward and obvious, and I agree that the terms "fabrication" or "lie" in this context are not too strong. If anyone reading has an argument to the contrary (such as "innocent mistake"), I'd love to hear it.

Climategate Investigation A Monumental Whitewash

A Parliamentary investigation into the climategate scandal has cleared the scientists involved of any data fixing and subversion of the peer review process, and notes that the scandal provides no evidence to challenge the notion that human activity is causing catastrophic global warming.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "investigation" took all of one day and consisted of letting the Hadley CRU scientists make up any nonsense they wanted, such as the claim that "Hide the decline" is science-speak for getting rid of erroneous data. (It isn't!)

I would be tempted to dismiss this as an April Fool's day joke but I think the reality is that the government of Great Britain is as desperate to get their hands on carbon-tax revenues as the US Government, coupled with the fact that governments are operating just like the Vatican these days, in that they presume an aura of infallibility which does not allow one to ever admit error.

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY

Human Caused Global Warming is not being researched; it is being promoted. Al Gore and his fellow investors have spent over a hundred million dollars in creating a crisis of human-caused global warming out of (quite literally) thin air. They are not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. They expect to reap billions in profits from the trading of Carbon Credits, a "license to pollute" available for a price and subject to brokerage fees. One of the people Al Gore relied on to create this scheme was Ken Lay, late of ENRON, aka the Crooked "E". Al Gore plans to use Carbon Dioxide to do to the world what Ken Lay did to California using electricity; loot the people!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Relinked in light of the one-day "investigation" by the government of Great Britain that has claimed to clear the scientists of all wrongdoing.

The government is starting to act just like the Vatican here!

Mainstream Media Ignores Climategate

The Earth entered a definitive cooling cycle around 1998 when weather satellites all recorded decreases in average global temperatures. The temperatures reported by the IPCC had been deliberately falsified by the placement of weather stations in or near “heat islands” such as cities or had been ignored when their data contradicted the fraud.

Climategate: the parliamentary cover-up

Climategate exposed the greatest scandal in the history of modern science but you’re never going to hear this from any of the official investigations. Andrew Orlowski at The Register has uncovered why.

Turns out, that there’s this well-funded SPECTRE-like advocacy group called GLOBE (Global Legislators for a Balanced Environment) International which has co-opted leading parliamentarians from the main parties in both the Commons and the Lords into advancing the AGW agenda.

One of those is Lord Oxburgh, recently appointed – on the Royal Society’s recommendation – to lead one of the two official enquiries into Climategate. Mysteriously, Lord Oxburgh has failed to mention GLOBE in his register of interests.

Climategate Shows There's No Global Warming Consensus

Call it the global warming crackup, an unfolding proc­ess of contradictory claims about glaciers, weather, and scientists asserting a consensus when none exists. Global warming alarmists can't make up their minds because the entire basis for their energy rationing project has collapsed into a mess of errors, exaggerations, and deceit.

Climategate: two more bricks fall out of the IPCC wall of deceit – rainforests and polar bears

Oops! There go another two bricks, tumbling out of the IPCC wall of deceit on man-made global warming – there is not a lot left now; even the Berlin Wall (to which the AGW construct is ideologically allied) has survived better. Unhappily for Al, Phil, Michael, George and the rest of the scare-mongers, these two discredited components are among the most totemic in the AGW religion.

ClimateGate Goes Back to 1980

Those of you who still believe that the ClimateGate scandal was just a bunch of emails in England should read this article. James Hansen of GISS appears to have systematically adjusted the historical temperature record to remove a cold patch in the ’70s in order to exaggerate the rise since. The amount of change of 0.6 degrees is for one decade is close to the measured change for the whole century. This is vividly seen in these three snapshots of his data being modified:

Climategate: two more bricks fall out of the IPCC wall of deceit – rainforests and polar bears

So, the rainforest scare, like the Himalayan glaciers panic, is garbage. A further encouraging feature of this development is that genuine scientists are increasingly becoming emboldened to challenge the IPCC’s junk science: the Academy is beginning to reassert its integrity. AGW without withered rainforests is Hamlet without the prince. It was one of those emotive claims much invoked by priggish children in the voice-overs of nanny-state “green” commercials, lecturing their elders on the stewardship of the planet.

ClimateGate: What Will Television Do With All Their Scare-Programming?

But two things happened last year that shot an arrow in the heart of the beast; one of the worst winters on record and Climategate. And the hits keep on coming. Now it turns out that NASA, who claimed for years that their data proves Global Warming is real, was actually just using CRU data all along. And the CRU couldn’t back up any of its data. In fact, they “lost the records” when they were forced to produce them. Oops!

So now these news channels who’ve been trumpeting the story as fact, all those cable networks who spent millions on documentaries hyping it, all those TV shows hawking green as the in color; they all look like fools. Or worse, they look like they were in on what will go down as one of the biggest scams in human history.

Another WWF assisted IPCC claim debunked: Amazon more drought resistant than claimed

A new NASA-funded study has concluded that Amazon rain forests were remarkably unaffected in the face of once-in-a-century drought in 2005, neither dying nor thriving, contrary to a previously published report and claims by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

“We found no big differences in the greenness level of these forests between drought and non-drought years, which suggests that these forests may be more tolerant of droughts than we previously thought,” said Arindam Samanta, the study’s lead author from Boston University.

Climategate: the IPCC's whitewash 'review' is the AGW camp's biggest mistake yet

It looks as if the tottering IPCC has just made its biggest mistake yet. Twenty-four hours after the announcement of an “independent” inquiry into certain aspects of its activities it is possible to make a considered assessment of its significance. By any reasoned analysis, it is not only a whitewash but one in which the paint is spread so thinly as to be transparent.

First, who appointed this review body? Those two iconic standard bearers of climate science objectivity, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and IPCC head (still!) Rajendra Pachauri. There is nothing like being judge in your own cause – it secures a less damaging verdict.

Climategate Stunner: NASA Heads Knew NASA Data Was Poor, Then Used Data from CRU

Email messages obtained by the Competitive Enterprise Institute via a Freedom of Information Act request reveal that the climate dataset of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) was considered — by the top climate scientists within NASA itself — to be inferior to the data maintained by the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit (CRU).

The NASA scientists also felt that NASA GISS data was inferior to the National Climate Data Center Global Historical Climate Network (NCDC GHCN) database.

These emails, obtained by Christopher Horner, also show that the NASA GISS dataset was not independent of CRU data.

UN brings in top scientists to review IPCC report on Himalayan glaciers

Moves aims to restore public confidence in science of global warming after mistake over melting rates of glaciers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that the goal of the meeting isn't to find out what is really happening with global warming, but to "restore public confidence in science of global warming", i.e. re-brand, repackage, and re-sell the same snake oil all over again.

And note that the UN and IPCC are trying to put all the focus on the one bogus claim about the Himalayan Glaciers.

But of course, the loss of trust in the global warming cult is not based only on the lie about the glaciers. The AGW cult has been destroyed by numerous and repeated lies, exaggerations and frauds.

In addition to the glaciers, there was the CRU computer code, which showed that the entire "hockey stick" was a fabrication.

There were the Climategate emails which showed a coordinated and deliberate campaign of suppression of any opposing viewpoints.

There was the British Court ruling that found numerous points in Al Gore's "documentary" to be outright lies, such as claiming that increasing CO2 led to increase in temperature which the ice core data shows exactly the opposite; that first the temperature goes up, and then CO2 increases!

There is the video of the former head of Greenpeace admitting that the claims about Greenland losing its ice cover in 20 years were totally made up fantasies to scare people into signing donations checks!

There were the temperature sensors in colder high latitudes being shut down.

There was the temperature sensors found sitting in air conditioning outflows and in one document case next to a trash incinerator.

There was the new paint applied to the boxes holding the temperature sensors that increased the internal temperature by a whole degree!

The list goes on and on and the gaffe over the Himalayan Glaciers is just a tiny part of the whole scandal, but apparently the one the UN and IPCC feel they can refute while ignoring the rest, in order to "restore public confidence in science of global warming", i.e. re-brand, repackage, and re-sell the same snake oil all over again.

They must really think you are stupid!

A perfect storm is brewing for the IPCC

It was in this newspaper that we first revealed how Pachauri has earned millions of pounds for his Delhi-based research institute Teri, and further details are still emerging of how he has parlayed his position into a worldwide business empire, including 17 lucrative contracts from the EU alone. But we should not expect the truth to break in too suddenly on this mass of vested interests. Too many people have too much at stake to allow the faith in man-made global warming, which has sustained them so long and which is today making so many of them rich, to be abandoned.

Met Office to re-examine 150 years of temperature data in the wake of the Climategate scandal

Temperature records dating back more than 150 years are to be re-examined by the Met Office because public belief in global warming has plummeted.

The re-analysis, which was approved at a conference in Turkey this week, comes after the climate change email scandal which dealt a severe blow to the credibility of environmental science.

The Met Office says that the review is 'timely' and insists it does not expect to come to a different conclusion about the progress of climate change.

Climategate: the official cover-up continues

If there’s one thing that stinks even more than Climategate, it’s the attempts we’re seeing everywhere from the IPCC and Penn State University to the BBC to pretend that nothing seriously bad has happened, that “the science” is still “settled”, and that it’s perfectly OK for the authorities go on throwing loads more of our money at a problem that doesn’t exist.
