Climategate Revelations but the Tip of Giant Iceberg, says Atmospheric Scientist
13 Dec 09 - "A well organized international climate warming conspiracy that has been gathering momentum for the last 25 years,"
says Dr. William Gray.

Boxer wants to prosecute whistle blowers instead of lying scientists
4 Dec 09 - She wants to spin it. She wants to call it “email-theft-gate”, not
Climategate. Way to go, Babs. This shows your true colors.

Climate Change 'Fraud'
By John Ingham
2 Dec 09  - The scientific consensus that mankind has caused climate
change was rocked yesterday as a leading academic called it a “load
of hot air underpinned by fraud”.

Deliberate distortion of climate data
By Alan Caruba
"Who can trust the “science” produced by NASA and other U.S. agencies that have benefited from billions in grants directed at so-called climate, i.e. global warming research?"
Deliberate distortion of climate data

Secrecy in science is corrosive
27 Nov 09 - Why should taxpayers fund scientists who deliberately
delay, obfuscate and deny open access to their research?

They don't give a s*** about the science
28 Nov 09 - (Excerpts) - "If you're wondering how the robot-like
march of the world's politicians towards Copenhagen can possibly
continue in the face of the scientific scandal dubbed "climategate,"
 it's because Big Government, Big Business and Big Green don't
give a s*** about "the science."

Climategate: five Aussie MPs resign in disgust over carbon tax
26 Nov 09 -
"For the rapidly increasing number of us who believe that
AGW is little more than a scheme by bullying eco-fascists to deprive us
of our liberty, by big government to spread its controlling tentacles into
every aspect our lives, and scheming industrialists such as Al Gore to
enrich themselves through carbon trading, this principled act by Australia’s Carbon Five is fantastic news."

Hacked files reveal global warming is a deliberate fraud
By Dr. Timothy Ball
21 Nov 09 – "Global Warming is often called a hoax. I disagree because a
hoax has a humorous intent to puncture pomposity. The argument that global
warming is due to humans known as the anthropogenic global warming theory
(AGW) is a deliberate fraud... the (hacked files) provide not just a smoking
gun, but an entire battery of machine guns."

Phil Jones has collected a staggering $22.6 million in grants
21 Nov 09 - According to this article, Phil Jones, director of the University of
East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU), says that he "can't remember"
what he meant by "hiding the decline." I wonder if he remembers the $22.6
million in grants. I wonder if he remembers only those things that the
IPCC wants him to remember.

Investors Business Daily Editorial: "Climate Con Job"
“These scientists, if they can still be called that, have successfully
conned the world into believing that radical and costly remediation
is needed to stop the planet from overheating. They have needlessly
menaced people and taken taxpayer funds to perpetuate the
deception. They need to he held accountable.”

Viscount Monckton: 'They Are Criminals"

“What have the mainstream news media said about the Climategate
affair? Remarkably little. The few who have brought themselves to
comment, through gritted teeth, have said that all of this is a storm
in a teacup, and that their friends in the University of East Anglia
and elsewhere in the climatological community are good people, really.

No, they’re not. They’re criminals.” m-exclusive/?print=1

Wall Street Journal editorial: "Global Warming with the Lid Off"
“Some of those mentioned in the emails have responded to our requests
 for comment by saying they must first chat with their lawyers. Others have
offered legal threats and personal invective. Still others have said nothing
at all. Those who have responded have insisted that the emails reveal
nothing more than trivial data discrepancies and procedural debates.

“Yet all of these nonresponses manage to underscore what may be the
most revealing truth: That these scientists feel the public doesn't have a
right to know the basis for their climate-change predictions, even as their
governments prepare staggeringly expensive legislation in response to them. “

Ian Murray:
"Three Things You Absolutely Must Know About Climategate"
“First, the scientists discuss manipulating data to get their preferred results.
The most prominently featured scientists are paleoclimatologists, who
reconstruct historical temperatures and who were responsible for a series
of reconstructions that seemed to show a sharp rise in temperatures well
above historical variation in recent decades.

“Secondly, scientists on several occasions discussed methods of subverting
the scientific peer review process to ensure that skeptical papers had no
access to publication.

“Finally, the scientists worked to circumvent the Freedom of Information
process of the United Kingdom.” t=1

Wall Street Journal article by Keith Johnson:
"Climate Emails Stoke Debate"

“Phil Jones, the director of the East Anglia climate center,
suggested to climate scientist Michael Mann of Penn State
University that skeptics' research was unwelcome: We "will
keep them out somehow -- even if we have to redefine what
the peer-review literature is!" Neither man could be reached
for comment Sunday. “

Another article in Wall Street Journal
by Keith Johnson and Gautam Naik:
"Lawmakers Probe Climate Emails"

“Sen. James Inhofe (R., Okla.), an outspoken critic of the view
that humans are causing global warming, said that in light of the
emails, he will call for an investigation into the state of climate
science if the Senate Committee on Environment and Public
Works doesn't act soon.”

From the amusing blogger for the Wall Street Journal,
James Taranto: "Settled Science?"

“(Michael) Mann, who directs Penn State's Earth System Science
Center, said the e-mails reflected the sort of "vigorous debate" researchers
engage in before reaching scientific conclusions. "

“This is downright Orwellian. What the Post describes is not a vigorous
debate but an attempt to suppress debate--to politicize the process of
scientific inquiry so that it yields a predetermined result. This does not,
in itself, prove the global warmists wrong. But it raises a glaring question:
If they have the facts on their side, why do they need to resort to tactics
of suppression and intimidation?”

Prof. Singer's televised debate with Robert Watson,
former the head of the IPCC and a science advisor to Al Gore, please see 
[H/t Richard Wellings] [SEPP comment: Watson's claim that the data cannot
be released because it does not belong to the CRU is stunning. After billions
in taxpayer money spent, the public cannot review the data because it is
proprietary? It may be far cheaper to buy the data first before spending an
additional pound in buying electricity to run the computer models that use
data that has not been independently reviewed.]
