ClimateGate: The Fix is In

ClimateGate: The Fix is In
by Robert Tracinski

For more than a decade, we’ve been told that there is a scientific “consensus” that humans are causing global warming, that “the debate is over” and all “legitimate” scientists acknowledge the truth of global warming. Now we know what this “consensus” really means. What it means is: the fix is in.

This is an enormous case of organized scientific fraud, but it is not just scientific fraud. It is also a criminal act. Suborned by billions of taxpayer dollars devoted to climate research, dozens of prominent scientists have established a criminal racket in which they seek government money. Phil Jones has raked in a total of £13.7 million in grants from the British government which they then use to falsify data and defraud the taxpayers. It’s the most insidious kind of fraud: a fraud in which the culprits are lauded as public heroes. Judging from this cache of e-mails, they even manage to tell themselves that their manipulation of the data is intended to protect a bigger truth and prevent it from being “confused” by inconvenient facts and uncontrolled criticism.

The damage here goes far beyond the loss of a few billions of taxpayer dollars on bogus scientific research. The real cost of this fraud is the trillions of dollars of wealth that will be destroyed if a fraudulent theory is used to justify legislation that starves the global economy of its cheapest and most abundant sources of energy.

This is the scandal of the century. It needs to be thoroughly investigated-and the culprits need to be brought to justice.

    Okay lets see how Wanderant, CountDown and GregGully turn this into another reason too toss racist insults my way!!
    I will err on the side of caution in regards too global warming. There is no dispute that the earth warmed in the past 100 years. The dispute seems to lie in what caused the earth too warm. There are two camps of thought on this. The progressive camp believes it was caused by man and natural causes. The neo-cons believe it was caused by nature.
    The FACTS are irrefutable that nature and man are the cause of the earths warming. How in GODS world could you not know that man has a hand in global warming. During the past century we have developed gas engines, electricity in homes, numerous factories, automobiles, Jet planes, and tremendous population growth. Common sense tells you that all of this emits CO2. CO2 is a major reason for global warming.
    Why does everything have to be right/left???

  3. Wanderant Says:

    Patriot, if you spit into the ocean, have you caused the rising sea level?

    Now, you’ve got a good scope on the human effect on global warming.

    Better check the historical climate records against your “facts” – they don’t jive….Turkey-

    It isn’t about right and left; it is about right and wrong.
