Tip of the Climategate Iceberg
By Bob Webster
November 30, 2009
Desperately trying to contain the fallout from the latest bombshell that destroyed the veneer of integrity at the UK's Climate Research Unit (CRU), the international cabal of "consensus scientists" are ducking for cover and preparing a sacrificial lamb (Phil Jones?) to save the skins of those whose names have not surfaced among the material revealed thus far. The problem for them is that they really don't know the extent of the pejorative evidence and whose name or email will appear. While the liberated material contained a wealth of information, it does not contain all correspondence among these disreputable scientists. Further, they now realize that attempts to continue stonewalling Freedom of Information Act requests is no longer an option. The alternative, destroying public records is an equally vile offense.
There is a point that needs to be made and made repeatedly and loudly. That point being: the revealed nature of the fraud that has been committed is so obvious and widespread that it is sufficient to condemn every participant in this massive fraud, whether explicitly named or not! The perversion of climate science is exposed as clear, ongoing, and absolutely necessary to support the illusion that human activity (carbon dioxide emissions) has any meaningful impact on climate. The CRU documents represent the tip of the "Climategate" iceberg. Only a thorough investigation will reveal the full extent of this massive fraud.
The reality is that there is a host of data, both from "skeptic" or "denier" as well as "true believer" sources, all of which clearly demonstrate that there is absolutely nothing unnatural about climate change over any period examined since records have been kept. Indeed, we now have hard evidence that massive fraud has been committed by corrupt scientists who have been cooking the data to create a false impression of warming at times when little or no warming has taken place (indeed, even when cooling was observed).
There can be no safe haven for these hucksters of fraudulent science. They are no better than any other "snake oil" salesmen. Those who were most responsible for massive diversion of federal spending (tens of billions of dollars over the past three decades) should not only be fired, they should be tried for criminal conspiracy and violations of the RICO Act. They have corrupted science, the classroom and political processes for their own personal empire-building gains.
In pursuit of their devious fraud, those in charge of trusted institutions from NASA's GISS to the UK's CRU have systematically buried raw data, hidden methodologies, and stonewalled efforts of legitimate scientists to obtain the information upon which their false claims were staked. These are clear violations of information freedom acts in both the US and UK and should be punished to the fullest extent of law along with other criminal acts those in charge have committed.
The people at RealClimate.org have lost all credibility. They have been an integral part of this massive scam and they cannot claim they were not aware of the fraud being committed because they frequently orchestrated that fraud.
The Hansen-Schmidt-Mann axis of scientific prostitutes must be summarily removed from any positions of public trust or funding and, where appropriate, put on trial for their disgraceful contributions to this massive fraud and theft of public funds.
Affirmations of massive international global warming fraud keep emerging from the hacked (liberated) CRU material. This conspiracy reaches into all corners of the "human-caused global warming" industry. Every scientist who participated in this fraud is either incompetent for not recognizing the pseudo-science upon which it was based or corrupt for being willing to pervert his profession for financial/political gain. In either case, there is no legitimate basis for spending one more dime on this scam.
Contact your Senators and Congressman today and tell them you want a thorough and complete investigation followed by severe punishment for those who have criminally misled Congress, wasted billions of tax dollars, deceived children and teachers for their own nefarious purposes, and played the media for fools with their massive fraud.
Bob Webster is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father and early American patriot, Ebenezer Webster, with a strong interest in history, our Constitution, U.S. politics and law. With objectivist and libertarian roots, he has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion and is a strong believer in our Constitution as written. A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science; he earned a degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech in 1964.
