"The intelligence and facts are being fixed around the policy."
the US corporate media tried to ignore the downing street memo.
Feel free to read them all yourself though...
East Anglia Confirmed Emails from the Climate Research Unit - Searchable
He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire. ~ Winston Churchill
Wow, that is powerful stuff.
Scientists agree that humans cause global warming
Ninety-seven percent of the climate scientists surveyed believe “global average temperatures have increased” during the past century.
Eighty-four percent say they personally believe human-induced warming is occurring, and 74% agree that “currently available scientific evidence” substantiates its occurrence. Only 5% believe that that human activity does not contribute to greenhouse warming; the rest are unsure.

"There is a lot of talk coming from CitiGroup about how Dodd-Frank isn't perfect, So let me say this to anyone listening at Citi —I agree with you. Dodd-Frank isn't perfect. It should have broken you into pieces." -- Elizabeth Warren
It's beginning to unravel for Obama? He's going to Copenhagen....how can this issue not be front burner....if a groundswell begins against this global warming hoax, his numbers already falling like Romans in front of Hannibal...what is next?
He should have chosen Tiger woods as a VP, get some of the publicity off of him.

It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

I am interested in seeing the data from NASA as well. Should be interesting to see the formulas they use to fill in data that was never recorded, How they adjusted the data after they changed the coatings on the temp sensor huts in 1979, how they account for urban heat soak in better than 80% of their temp sensor locations, etc.Researcher: NASA hiding climate data - Washington Times
Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said NASA has refused for two years to provide information under the Freedom of Information Act that would show how the agency has shaped its climate data and would explain why the agency has repeatedly had to correct its data going as far back as the 1930s.
"I assume that what is there is highly damaging," Mr. Horner said. "These guys are quite clearly bound and determined not to reveal their internal discussions about this."
Mr. Horner said he's seeking the data itself, but he also wants to see the chain of e-mails from scientists discussing the changes.
The Freedom of Information Act requires agencies to respond to requests within 20 days. Mr. Horner says he's never received an official acknowledgement of his three separate FOIA requests, but has received e-mails showing the agency is aware of them.
He said he has provided NASA with a notice of intent to sue under FOIA, but said he also hopes members of Congress get involved and demand the information be released.
NASA and CRU data are considered the backbone of much of the science that suggests the earth is warming due to manmade greenhouse gas emissions. NASA argues its data suggests this decade has been the warmest on record.
On the other hand, data from the University of Alabama-Huntsville suggests temperatures have been relatively flat for most of this decade.
Also, I am very interested in their explanation for how and why they saw no change in global temperatures from satellites until they "normalized the data to match ground sensor data".
And no, the Democrats cannot back down from global warming. They have bet everything on the control they will gain over the economy and the people with all the AGW laws and regulations they hope to pass.
It will be interesting to find out just who at NASA has exchanged what emails with the people under fire in this current scandal. Anyone care to bet that people high up in NASA are also implicated?
