Is the Political and Scientific Climate Changing on Global Warming?

Paul Driessen-Cleaning Out the Climate Change Cesspool:
There has been no statistically significant global warming for over a decade,
despite steadily increasing CO2 levels – and for several years average annual
global temperatures have actually declined.
Carbon dioxide plays only a
minor role, many scientists now say, and our climate is still controlled by the
same natural forces that caused previous climate changes: periodic shifts in
ocean currents and jet streams, water vapor and cloud cover, evaporation and
precipitation, planetary alignments and the shape of the Earth’s orbit, the tilt
and wobble of Earth’s axis, cosmic ray levels and especially solar energy
output.
Far worse for the Climate Armageddon movement, newly released emails
from its leading scientists reveal a cesspool of intimidation, duplicity and
fraud that could rock Copenhagen and the alarmist agenda to their core. The
emails cast deepening suspicion over global warming data, science and models.
They reveal an unprecedented, systematic conspiracy to stifle discussion and
debate, conceal and manipulate data, revise temperature trends that contradict
predictions of dangerous warming, skew the peer-review process, pressure
scientific journals and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to
publish alarmist studies and exclude dissenting analyses, and avoid compliance
with Freedom of Information requests.
British Climate Research Unit (CRU)
chief Phil Jones to Penn State climatologist Michael Mann, of Hockey Stick
infamy: “Can you delete any e-mails you may have had with Keith [Briffa] re AR4
[the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report and Briffa’s suspect tree-ring data]. Keith
will do likewise.”
Jones to Mann: “If they [Canadian researchers Ross
McKitrick and Steve McIntyre] ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act in
the UK, I think I’ll delete the file rather than send it to anyone.”
(These
actions appear intended to avoid Freedom of Information inquiries. Jones had
previously told a researcher, “Why should I make the data available, when your
aim is to try and find something wrong with it?” Drs. J&M, that’s the
scientific method – to ensure that research and experiments are honest, accurate
and replicable. Deleting files and data also raises serious ethical, scientific
and legal issues.)
Jones: “I can’t see either of these papers being in the
next IPCC report. Kevin [Trenberth, lead author of two IPCC reports] and I will
keep them out somehow – even if we have to redefine what the peer-review
literature is!” (Thereby excluding non-alarmist peer-reviewed papers and skewing
the IPCC process.)
Jones: “I’ve just completed Mike [Mann’s] trick of adding
in the real temps to each series, to hide the decline [in average global
temperatures] .…” (Maintain a warming trend, despite contrary evidence.)
Climate scientist Tom Wigley to Mann: “If you think [Yale Professor and
Global Renewables editor James] Saiers is in the greenhouse skeptics camp, then,
if we can find documentary evidence of this, we could go through official AGU
channels to get him ousted.” (Saiers was subsequently dismissed. The American
Geophysical Union is a once professional society that has likewise gotten into
the censorship, intimidation, climate alarm and money train business.)
These
are the very tip of the melting iceberg. To gauge the scope, depth and depravity
of the conspiracy, visit Bishop
Hill
, ClimateDepot.com and An Elegant Chaos on the
web.
These supposed scientists built their careers and reputations on
conjuring datasets, computer models, scenarios and reports – all claiming that
modern civilization’s use of hydrocarbons is about to destroy the planet, and
all financed by well over $100 billion in US, UK, EU and other taxpayer money.
Realist climate experts have long smelled a rat. The alarmists’ data didn’t
match other data. Their models never worked. Their claims of “consensus” and
“unprecedented” warming had no basis in fact. Too many grant and publication
decisions were decided by which side of the issue someone was on.

Read the rest.

Copenhagen will be interesting in light of the recent email hacking.

Flopping Aces has been on a climate change surge of posts since:

DEVELOPING BREAKING NEWS: Premiere Brit climate AGW research labs hacked… data spreading thru cyberspace about number fudging to hide temp decline

Global Warming Emails May Have Come From Insider (Check out the debate in the comments section)

CRU Emails – “Scientists Have Been Manipulating the Raw Temperature Figures”

ClimateGate the Musical

New ClimateGate Discovery: Hiding The Decline

New Zealand’s NIWA scientists accused of CRU-style fudging of data

without a 4th estate that is free to print the news as it happens, we are hampered at getting the truth out where it should be....."The public as always have their blinders on and therefore are quite myopic....stay well.....

I hope this goes down in -- dare I say it? -- flames?

Sorry, kinda sorta poor analogy.
