    Climategate: it's all unravelling now

    Link

    By James Delingpole Politics Last updated: December 2nd, 2009

    So many new developments: which story do we pick? Maybe best to summarise, instead. After all, it’s not like you’re going to find much of this reported in the MSM.
    1. Australia’s Senate rejects Emissions Trading Scheme for a second time. Or: so turkeys don’t vote Christmas. Expect to see a lot more of this: politicians starting to become aware their party’s position on AGW is completely out of kilter with the public mood and economic reality. Kevin Rudd’s Emissions Trading Scheme – what Andrew Bolt calls “a $114 billion green tax on everything” – would have wreaked havoc on the coal-dependent Australian economy. That’s why several opposition Liberal frontbenchers resigned rather than vote with the Government on ETS; why Liberal leader Malcolm Turnbull lost his job; and why the Senate voted down the ETS.
    2. Danes caught fiddling their carbon credits. (Hat tip: Philip Stott) Carbon trading is the Emperor’s New Clothes of international finance. It was invented by none other than Ken Lay, whose Enron would currently be one of the prime beneficiaries in the global alternative energy market, if it hadn’t been shown to be (nearly) as fraudulent as the current AGW scam. It is a licence to fleece, cheat and rob. Still, jolly embarrassing for the Danes to get caught red handed, what with their hosting a conference shortly in which the world’s leaders will try, straight-faced, to persuade us that carbon emissions trading is the only viable way of defeating ManBearPig.
    They ought to find the group who broke into the UAE system, and give them all Nobel Prizes for Science. These guys did more for science without degrees than the guys who fudged the data.

    Careful - the AGW zealots take considerable exception to people questioning their religion.

    The problem with all of this is it isn't being reported in any meaningful way on the standard mainstream media.

    Silent yes, clueless....I don't think so. I think they know exactly what they are doing. This is less about science and more about ideological purity of thought.

    source

    ......White House press secretary Robert Gibbs responded to a question about ClimateGate by insisting that "global warming is happening" and that for most people it isn't really a question anymore. That is the same message viewers get from the network news about climate change.

    An examination of morning and evening news programs on ABC, CBS and NBC since Nov. 20 yielded zero mentions of the scandal, even in the Nov. 25 reports about Obama going to Copenhagen to discuss the need for emissions reductions. But during the same time period, the networks reported on pro-golfer Tiger Woods' "minor" car accident at least 37 times. They also found time to report on an orphaned Moose and the meal selection at the president's State Dinner.......

    Boxer: Hackers should face criminal probe over 'Climategate' - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

    Pelosi wants to get those hackers that exposed the Inconvenient Truth.

    So you, don't support the fact they are criminals. I'd bet you don't care that the stole personal property, and in fact could change anything they wanted to to support their theory. The hackers deserved to be put in prison were they belong for do something ILLEGAL.

    I find this a tertiary issue at best. The damage this could possibly do to science is sobering to say the least.
