Phi Beta Iota: The media is being deliberately stupid. IPCC is not “the UN.” The UN Secretary General has opened an investigation and is accutely aware of both the crisis this fraud represents, and the opportunity for revisiting the Brahimi Report recommendations.

Climategate controversy has echoes of Watergate, UN says

The e-mails, which were sent over a 15-year period ending on November 12, first appeared on websites run by sceptics on November 17.

Sects, lies and climate-gate – Facts will not alter Obama policy

In the wake of the release of evidence proving that global warming studies have been falsified, and investigations into other global warming researchers believed to have also altered data, President Obama is still determined to commit the USA to regulations that will drastically increase the cost of doing business.

Letter from Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) to President Obama:  Although details have not been made available, recent statements by Special Envoy on Climate Change Todd Stern indicate that negotiators may be intending to commit the United States to a nationwide emission reduction program. As you well know from your time in the Senate, only specific legislation agreed upon in the Congress, or a treaty ratified by the Senate, could actually create such a commitment on behalf of our country.

The Big Question: Does ‘climate-gate’ matter politically?

Of course ClimateGate matters politically, and the damage has only begun.  This won’t help their electoral prospects. It also has ramifications for health care: If you can’t trust them on global warming, can you trust them on cancer screenings?

Obama Ignores ‘Climate-Gate’ in Revising Copenhagen Plans

The White House is shrugging off the Climate-gate e-mails.   “I think there’s no real scientific basis for the dispute of (global warming),” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said this week.    And Obama’s top science adviser, John Holdren, downplayed the e-mails Friday, telling Congress that the controversy involves a small group of scientists and how they have interpreted and shared global warming data.

Think ‘Climate-Gate’ Is Nonevent? Think Again

President Obama’s climate czar, Carol M. Browner, and White House spokesman Robert Gibbs might think that Climate-gate is a nonevent, but on Monday Pennsylvania State University announced that it was launching an investigation into the academic conduct of Michael Mann, the school’s Director of the Earth System Science Center. …  Dozens of researchers at other institutions could soon face similar investigations.

From Climate-gate to Google-gate to Who Was the Hacker Anyway?

Suddenly, though, on Monday December 1, Google stopped offering “climategate” as a choice to those who typed c-l-i and even to those who typed c-l-i-m-a-t-e-g-a-t. Strange.

NASA-Gate

What’s become known as “Climate-Gate” may be about to explode on this side of the pond as well. Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, has threatened a lawsuit against NASA if by year-end the agency doesn’t honor his FOI requests for information on how and why its climate numbers have been consistently adjusted for error

ClimateGate:  The 6 Most Dubious Claims About The Supposed “Global Warming Hoax”

Phi Beta Iota: For those who do not read, the six “myths” discussed in Arianna Huffington’s blog will be just as credible as the documented lies and fraudulent misrepresentations of the International Committee on Climate Change (IPCC), which in our view should be abolished.  The UN System needs a brain that serves all elements of the UN System, not a carbon ponzi scheme scam that only serves a few hucksters and their lobbyists pals.  Intellectually, the six myth dismissals below are beneath contempt.  We challenge Arianna to a debate–anywhere, anytime, just send us an e-ticket and we will engage in “a conversation that matters.”  Respectfully.  It’s time we all got smart again.

U.N. to open “climategate” probe, Issa criticizes Obama’s refusal to investigate

The UN has announced it will open an investigation into climate research as a result of the CRU e-mails and documents that became public last week. The UN said it is luanching the probe because some of the research in question touches on related work either completed or promoted by its own Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

An Inconvenient Truth: Al Gore, Climategate and Copenhagen

Al Gore has canceled a scheduled event to speak in Copenhagen and promote his new book Our Choice. Attendees who purchased tickets to hear the former US vice president and climate change speaker present his book in Denmark, will have to seek refunds for their ticket purchases.

Climategate: Academy members demand Gore’s Oscar be returned

Gore won an Oscar for his climate change documentary in 2007 which in light of leaked emails from 2,500 political hacks posing as scientists, criticism is rapidly growing against Gore and his qualifications for earning the award.

Does ‘Climategate’ kill Copenhagen?

Climategate will have a “huge impact” on the global-warming summit, said Saudi Arabia’s top climate negotiator, Mohammad Al-Sabban, to BBC News. “It appears from the details of the scandal that there is no relationship whatsoever between human activities and climate change,” so curbing carbon emissions will only hurt countries economically. We’ll only consider “no cost” proposals.

Time Covers Up For Climategate

Time Magazine is uncritically parroting a fabricated defense for one of the most damaging emails in Climategate, the one in which Phil Jones of the University of East Anglia boasted of repeating a “trick” to “hide the decline” in temperatures as indicated by tree ring data.

Climategate? What Climategate?

Democratic committee chairmen ignored the evidence of scientific skullduggery at the influential research unit, even as its head Phil Jones stepped aside this week to make way for an investigation.   …   After the hearing, Rep. Sensenbrenner said the refusal of committee Democrats or President Obama’s representatives to take the leaked emails seriously indicated that the “the President’s science advisers are at the bottom of the whole climate change debate,” and just as intent as the East Anglia scientists in not having a full and open airing of the issue.

Climate Gate Scandal Cybernet Fraud

The hacked emails of the scientists made people consider that they have been modifying their scientific studies to have some political gains. Yet, most of the leading dailies did not focus much on the Climate Gate scandal and the subsequent cybernet fraud.

Phi Beta Iota: When the celebrity status of Al Gore made it clear he would be considered for the Nobel, we wrote to the Nobel Committee urging them to instead recognize Lester Brown, Herman Daly, Paul Hawkin, and Anthony Lovins, who along with the Meadows (Limits to Growth) have been the real pioneers of Earth Science.  Climate Change is a scam, and we would not be surprised to learn that its primary proponent behind the scenes,  a Canadian energy entrepreneur, might be the Maddoff Ponzi Scheme artist of the new phantom wealth being “traded” under the Climate Change fraud.

Climategate: Science Is Dying  (WS)

The East Anglians’ mistreatment of scientists who challenged global warming’s claims—plotting to shut them up and shut down their ability to publish—evokes the attempt to silence Galileo. The exchanges between Penn State’s Michael Mann and East Anglia CRU director Phil Jones sound like Father Firenzuola, the Commissary-General of the Inquisition.

ClimateGate as Rorschach Test

The other side, meanwhile, cries “Remember the Pentagon Papers!” while also positing that the C.R.U. “hack” may have in fact been the work of an internal whistleblower who was distraught that scientific fraud was being perpetrated.

Comedy Central Scoops Network News on Climate-Gate Scandal

“Poor Al Gore. Global warming completely debunked via the very Internet you invented. Oh, oh, the irony!”  ….[Instead of reporting on ClimateGate, “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.”

Glenn Beck: What Separates Climate-Gate From Other Conspiracies?

BECK: Good. Tell me, Climate-gate: Give me the one thing that you — as you’re looking into it, you go, “Wow, people should pay attention to this one thing.”

GOLDBERG: Well, you know, the news that so many people are scamming and conniving behind the scenes to exploit global warming hysteria is not shocking. It’s the evidence. Very rarely do you have a conspiracy where there’s actual evidence like this.

BECK: A hundred and forty-five trillion is what is going to cost, their solution, trillions of dollars at stake. So, somebody is making money off of this.

GOLDBERG: That’s right and for years, anyone who criticized global warming was accused of being bought and paid for by the polluting industry and whatnot, while these enlightened, objective scientists, you know, were beyond reproach.   It was like Bill Murray in “Ghostbusters” who says, “Back off, man. I’m a scientist.”

Phi Beta Iota: Copenhagen will either “cover up” the fraud and failure of the science put forward by the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which we judge to be 60% likely, or–if Brazil, China, India, and other decide to adapt very rapidly to this opportunity, it could put the IPCC out of business and instead call on the United Nations to endorse, and private donors such as Sir Richard Branson to fund, a World Brain Institute with an embedded global brain.  At the link below is a two-page point paper we drafted  for speculative reflective purposes.  It may be freely distributed under Creative Commons copyright.  The truth at any cost lessens all other costs–this is not rocket science, just integrity.
