When pictures seem alive with movements free When boats like fishes swim beneath the sea, When men like birds shall scour the sky Then half the world, deep drenched in blood shall die.

For those who live the century through In fear and trembling this shall do. Flee to the mountains and the dens To bog and forest and wild fens.

For storms will rage and oceans roar When Gabriel stands on sea and shore And as he blows his wondrous horn Old worlds die and new be born.

A fiery dragon will cross the sky Six times before this earth shall die Mankind will tremble and frightened be for the sixth heralds in this prophecy.

For seven days and seven nights Man will watch this awesome sight. The tides will rise beyond their ken To bite away the shores and then The mountains will begin to roar And earthquakes split the plain to shore.

And flooding waters, rushing in Will flood the lands with such a din That mankind cowers in muddy fen And snarls about his fellow men.

He bares his teeth and fights and kills And secrets food in secret hills And ugly in his fear, he lies To kill marauders, thieves and spies.

Man flees in terror from the floods And kills, and rapes and lies in blood And spilling blood by mankinds hands Will stain and bitter many lands

And when the dragon's tail is gone, Man forgets, and smiles, and carries on To apply himself - too late, too late For mankind has earned deserved fate.

His masked smile - his false grandeur, Will serve the Gods their anger stir. And they will send the Dragon back To light the sky - his tail will crack Upon the earth and rend the earth And man shall flee, King, Lord, and serf.

But slowly they are routed out To seek diminishing water spout And men will die of thirst before The oceans rise to mount the shore.

And lands will crack and rend anew You think it strange. It will come true.

And in some far off distant land Some men - oh such a tiny band Will have to leave their solid mount And span the earth, those few to count, Who survives this (unreadable) and then Begin the human race again.

But not on land already there But on ocean beds, stark, dry and bare Not every soul on Earth will die As the Dragons tail goes sweeping by.

Not every land on earth will sink But these will wallow in stench and stink Of rotting bodies of beast and man Of vegetation crisped on land.

But the land that rises from the sea Will be dry and clean and soft and free Of mankinds dirt and therefore be The source of man's new dynasty.

And those that live will ever fear The dragons tail for many year But time erases memory You think it strange. But it will be.

And before the race is built anew A silver serpent comes to view And spew out men of like unknown To mingle with the earth now grown Cold from its heat and these men can Enlighten the minds of future man.

To intermingle and show them how To live and love and thus endow The children with the second sight. A natural thing so that they might Grow graceful, humble and when they do The Golden Age will start anew.

The dragon's tail is but a sign For mankind's fall and man's decline. And before this prophecy is done I shall be burned at the stake, at one My body singed and my soul set free You think I utter blasphemy You're wrong. These things have come to me
This prophecy will come to be.

Climate change data dumped

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/environment/article6936328.ece

SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.

It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years

U-turn on climate change 'cover up' as university says it will publish leaked email data

The university said it will make all the data accessible in conjunction with the Met Office Hadley Centre as soon as the CRU had negotiated its release from non-publication agreements. However, how much information this will include was today thrown into doubt, as the Sunday Times reported that scientists had admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data.

I have paid a very large price but all along have consulted with my family because they ultimately pay the price. I am proud to say, and I tell them often, how much I appreciate their support. I was denied promotion in the university to the point where I understand I became the longest in rank as an assistant professor in Canadian history. A fact that was part of the ridicule against me on Wikipedia. I was fired from my position as a columnist for a weather column for farmers that I wrote for 17 years.

I am not complaining, it was a conscious decision made in consultation with my family. I knew when I stood up in the cocoanut shy they would throw at me. I have some sympathy with people who have mortgages and families but the truth is if we don't have integrity we have nothing as the amoral and immoral behavior all involved with CRU prove. It is also revealing to see people trying to flee the torpedoed ship. Many of them resorting to the modern tactic of victimology.

Remarkable how Russian hackers are now considered reliable sources. Also significant is how much faith the financial wizards that populate this blog place in the supposed truth that those global warming guys are making a fortune and that this surely discredits the science. How much is being made on the back of national defense and wars that go on forever? How much is being made by allowing GS to borrow at the Fed window? How many billions do health insurance companies scam by simply paying millions to several senators for their votes.
If, and it will take a lot more than this, to make global warming into a fraud. It will still only be a pimple on an elephants ass compared to the rip offs that have become part of every day life.

There are more combinations of DNA than there are atoms on planet earth. And the scientists working hard for those big bonuses promised at the end of the project see the easy way out is to simply declare 97% of the genome as junk DNA. Basicaly any bit they don't understand. If one tweaking of their doing causes a mass wipout of cereals what are they gonna do? Say sorry? These people are writing checks no bank can cash. Scientific objectivity, my @ss. This si science gone rogue.

The excerpts from emails and code comments are thought provoking but do not prove fraud on the part of Dr. Jones or the East Anglia center (not to mention the scientific validity of human induced climate change). They should be investigated in the proper forum, of course. That is, within the research community not on financial blogs.

As far as grant money is concerned, I would imagine climatologists could make make much more money telling the oil companies what they want to hear.

PM - thanks for catching the fringe items that deserve front page status. This is a enormous issue that ties in with a lot of other possible fraudulent activity. This bluff has to be called and why the hell people are not marching with pitchforks now I simply don't understand. I'm sure is has nothing to do with the MSM's stellar coverage of this historic event. Anyway, thanks for posting this and spreading the good word. I appreciate it.

Project Mayhem and the other RW bloggers filling this site with their worldview-  

I do not see how you get from the emails you published--a minority out of thousands of emails by your admission--to the conclusions which you reach that the vast majority of scientists are criminals and liars.  

Such a position was adopted by the Catholic church in the 1600's.  They burned to death various persons and tried to keep the scientists from doing anything.  I'd suggest that if you actually believe in such government rules, that the scientists are mostly liars, that you stop using your car, reading books, using computers, or the internet.  None of  wld exist if the anti-scientist crowd runs things. 

Let me suggest that it is normal for their to be disputes within a scientific community.  And?  Your point is?

The overwhelming physical evidence shows that the Climate is changing--as do the measurements buts its hard to measure because there are so many local variables involved.  Is it really so controversial to conclude that SOMETHING is changing the climate?   

The best model which the scientists now have predict that if the tempature rises, then we should see wider swings of weather:  higher highs, lower lows, changing in rainfall patterns, bigger storms.  That seems to be happening too.  Overwhelming evidence throughout the world.  Melting ice, droughts, changes in tree patterns, rain falls, etc.

I'd suggest that the RW refusal to admit science, the collective wisdom of open minded individuals, is usually right is contributing to the US downfall and weakening the country. 

Not the Republican's opposite conclusion, that the collective judgment of the scientific community is usually wrong.   And that ignorance should be praised and promoted. 

On a somewhat related issue:

The RW bloggers using this site to claim that science and regulation will leading us on some road to  serfdom should read  Hayek's book of that name.  Hayek discusses how the Nazi's rose to power.   His book does not discuss science.  Hayek ACTUALLY concludes honest democracy, regulations, and the rule of law will PROTECT against serfdom and abuses of power--not the point for which the book is cited by the RW, who obviously either never read Hayek's book The Road to Serfdom and are ignorant or delusional or read the book and are lying about what it said. 

Since that book is thrown around quite a bit by the RW attackers of democracy and law, let me suggest the readers of this blog get the book and read chapter 3 of the Road to Serfdom, in which Hayek concludes that society should allow more competition over central planning, derides monopoly power, and writes "To prohibit the use of certain poisonous substances or to require special precautions in their use, to limit working hours or to require certain sanitary arrangements, is fully compatible with the preservation of competition.  The only question here is whether [the benefits outweigh the costs]."

I'd suggest from reading Hayek's book that he SUPPORTS the liberal establishment and the scientific community-- and the idea neither is perfect only that its the best we've got. 

That some cheat and lie is nothing new.  The idea that everyone does is not always correct. 

 

 

 

tip e. canoe's picture

i have read the road to serfdom, and i have always consciously considered my perspective more from the LW than the RW (according to your acronyms).  and i do understand much of where you're coming from and very much appreciate your recognition of hayek's work as one that respects human rights as a foundation for economics.

with that said, let me ask you a couple things:

do you have a compost bin? 
how many gallons of petrol did you personally burn in the last month?
how many plants are you growing/taking care of?
what is your monthly usage of coal-derived electricity in KwH's?

(answer honestly please)

If you take a few moments and speed read the thousands of emails you will find that these titans of anthropogenic global warming have a unique approach in  dealing with disputes. A random example (one of many in regard to FOIA requests):

    Phil Jones said the following on 6/19/2007 4:22 AM:
    Wei-Chyung and Tom,
    ...
    Nothing much else to say except:
    1. Think I've managed to persuade UEA to ignore all further FOIA
    requests if the people have anything to do with Climate Audit.
    2. Had an email from David Jones of BMRC, Melbourne. He said
    they are ignoring anybody who has dealings with CA, as there are
    threads on it about Australian sites.
    3. CA is in dispute with IPCC (Susan Solomon and Martin Manning)
    about the availability of the responses to reviewer's at the various
    stages of the AR4 drafts. They are most interested here re Ch 6 on
    paleo.

I think some of these scientists probably need to step back and take a break. Some of the emails -- where they want to withhold data from skeptics who are a pain in their collective ass -- are upsetting to me. This is an argument for absolute transparency.

But yeah, there's very little in the massive disclosure that is even remotely upsetting. Out of all that data, critics have cherry picked a few things that are being published out of context. The explanations for some of the stuff is unsatisfactory, but even at its worst, my response is... "Meh..."

What is really noteworthy, as the RC folks have said, is how absolutely little there is that's remotely damning, and how there's NOTHING in there that suggests a broad conspiracy in the slightest. In fact, most of the concerning stuff is from a tiny handful of scientists, leaving the vast, vast majority of scientists in the clear. And there's definitely no suggestion of a bias motive or any incentive to falsify findings.

Now maybe the vast majority of scientists can now tell the truth. Instead of talking book, for cru, without jeopardizing their careers.

This is by far the worst post I have read on ZH. I highly doubt that almost anyone venting their opinions here has any clue what they are talking about. When I look for insight into the financial industry I come here, because I believe that people here know some shit about shit. However, when I want to know more about climate change I listen to those well versed in the physical and natural sciences, aka scientists (not financial bloggers).

Every single one of my science professors at school (the Nicholas School of the Environment) was very certain that global warming will be a very real threat in the not-so-distant future. These are people who have dedicated their lives to researching geology, oceanography, marine biology, chemistry, physics and the energy industry. No disrespect, Mr. Mayhem, but I trusted them to tell me the truth, and I believe that they have. But keep up the good work on your other postings (you know, about economics, finance and that sort).

Do you think this weighs in favor of their credibility?  It would appear to suggest an enourmous bias.


Anonymous's picture

While I may have exaggerated a bit in saying EVERY SINGLE ONE supports the man made theory, I believe that the vast majority do. And I do not think this suggests an enormous bias. Generally speaking, these academics have each done their own independent work supporting certain hypotheses and that, when this work is combined with projects from other fields, the overall picture points to the theory of man made global warming. Other experienced and intelligent scientists then use prior work to make further conclusions, and extrapolate upon the evidence for MMGW.

Clearly, there will be some academics and scientists who cook their results, like the ones caught in this post, and later research done will be tainted by these results. But as a whole, the science community in the United States and in the World is very supportive of the MMGW theory. I think you would be hard pressed to walk into any top university or graduate school and find a well-respected physical or natural scientist who would be willing to seriously argue against the basis of a man made global warming theory. Now, if you think they are all paid off, tenured lemmings then that is your view, but not mine.

As to dealing with it, I fall more in line with the ZH bandwagon. Cap and *Trade* sounds good on paper, but in the real world it has not and probably will not work as well as planned (or even close). Too many perverse incentives, and GREED comes into play (although when does it not?). What we need is a simple carbon tax, one that would allow alternate energy to compete on even footing with coal and oil. Once we get the ball rolling on this, and the more money that is poured into these industries, that is when our leaders will stop blowing Saudi kinds and fighting criminally wasteful (in financial and human terms) wars in deserts and mountain tundras. The technology is there. Wind farms are being built as we speak. Solar panels are growing in use and getting more cost and energy efficient, we just need to tip the scales in their favor. Yeah, your energy bill will probably go up in the short term... big fuckin deal. This is a long term problem that requires a long term solution. Maybe use tax receipts from this program to subsidize energy cooperatives in low income areas, or give tax exemptions to tech firms in this industry that keep their employees in THIS country.

To finish, here is what I remember from a rant that a friend of mine went on after hitting a rather large L.

He believes that it would be impossible for man made global warming not to be true. Just think of the amount of shit that gets pumped into the atmosphere every day, from the hundreds of millions of cars and trucks driving around to factories spewing millions of gallons of poisonous chemical A to the amount of dirty ass coal we burn to the hundreds of millions of houses and hotels and office buildings with every god damn light on at all times and the heat or AC cranked to the fucking max, to all the pollution we create and get rid of (where does this all go? landfills? the ocean? but really where, in the end?) Have you ever been to Mexico City? It looks like fuckin New England FOG when you fly in but that, my friend, is actually Mexican SMOG. That shit is filthy.

The "Climate" as we know it, has changed drastically over the life of this world. But the questions are the same. What exactly caused the ice ages? Why did the dinosaurs die? Are the polar caps melting? Will all of Florida be underwater in 50 years? WHO THE FUCK KNOWS. All I know is that there have never, ever been this many organisms on earth before using every single combustible or poisonous substance they can get their grimy fuckin hands on and then pumping, blowing, shooting, pissing or even shitting them up them into the air. I mean, I start up the diesel engine on my boat and a nasty ass dark cloud of toxic smoke dissapates into the atmosphere... that can't help. Times that by who knows how many billions and that is what we put into the air every single day. Now, I'm not saying that the world is going to end in the next century... but were definitly fucking some shit up. And if you don't believe that... your a re-tard.

Apocalypse Now's picture

An error in a priori logic.  Most of these arguments begin with an assumption that is relied upon to try and prove an argument where the facts do not fit the hypothesis but that is not science.  You see, this is like an argument that God exists by starting with the premise that God exists and using it for proof - the same goes for evolution, they are both theories that start with an assumption to prove the argument - in reality both evolution and intelligent design both require faith because we can't put either under a microscope to prove either. 

Many of us believe what we have been taught to believe and what we have seen on TV and what we have read in the paper - they are real, because they are real to us and what we have been led to believe.  Truly objective individuals are a rare breed.

Relevant Rousseau Qutoes:

  • Falsehood has an infinity of combinations, but truth has only one mode of being.
  • General and abstract ideas are the source of the greatest errors of mankind.
  • The less reasonable a cult is, the more men seek to establish it by force.
  • The first step towards vice is to shroud innocent actions in mystery, and whoever likes to conceal something sooner or later has reason to conceal it.
  • I prefer liberty with danger than peace with slavery.
  • Truth is no road to fortune.

I can understand wanting to save the world and being told your profession will do just that.  Take solace in saving the world from tyranny - including the tyranny of the dishonorable corporations poisoning the earth and the food supply (and measuring the impact of pollution - not CO2) if you want to fight a real enemy.

A good movie to watch would be Network, here's an excerpt:

"Because the only truth you know is what you get over this tube. Right now, there is a whole, an entire generation that never knew anything that didn't come out of this tube! This tube is the Gospel, the ultimate revelation. This tube can make or break presidents, popes, prime ministers... This tube is the most awesome God-damned force in the whole godless world, and woe is us if it ever falls in to the hands of the wrong people, and that's why woe is us that Edward George Ruddy died.

Because this company is now in the hands of CCA -- the Communication Corporation of America. There's a new Chairman of the Board, a man called Frank Hackett, sitting in Mr. Ruddy's office on the twentieth floor. And when the twelfth largest company in the world controls the most awesome God-damned propoganda force in the whole godless world, who knows what shit will be peddled for truth on this network?

So, you listen to me. Listen to me: Television is not the truth! Television is a God-damned amusement park! Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, side-show freaks, lion tamers, and football players. We're in the boredom-killing business! So if you want the truth... Go to God! Go to your gurus! Go to yourselves! Because that's the only place you're ever going to find any real truth...

"We're all you know. You're beginning to believe the illusions we're spinning here. You're beginning to think that the tube is reality, and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you! You dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube, you even *think* like the tube! This is mass madness, you maniacs! In God's name, you people are the real thing! *WE* are the illusion! So turn off your television sets. Turn them off now. Turn them off right now. Turn them off and leave them off! Turn them off right in the middle of the sentence I'm speaking to you now! TURN THEM OFF...

Global unifying themes are so much more attractive to the human psyche than stating we want an all powerful one world government paid for with carbon taxes because everything that can be controlled from energy, movement, and all life forms emits CO2.  The fact that thousands of scientists have bravely signed petitions stating that the science is not settled, and that evidence exists that the data has been manipulated would lead a rational individual to conclude this is a flim flam sham-wow.

Now you are in a difficult position thinking originally that you could save the world from the threat of global warming.  You can either choose to believe that you are like a comic book hero and can save the world from imminent doom, or you can get mad at the manipulation.  You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, Goddamnit! My life has VALUE! Stick your head out the window and I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!'

From one of the emails:

Mike,

Just sent loads of station data to Scott. Make sure he documents everything better this time ! And don’t leave stuff lying around on ftp sites – you never know who is trawling them. The two [climate skeptics] MMs have been after the CRU station data for years. If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the UK, I think I’ll delete the file rather than send to anyone. Does your similar act in the US force you to respond to enquiries within 20 days? – our does ! The UK works on precedents, so the first request will test it.
We also have a data protection act, which I will hide behind. Tom Wigley has sent me a worried email when he heard about it – thought people could ask him for his model code. He has retired officially from UEA so he can hide behind that. IPR should be relevant here, but I can see me getting into an argument with someone at UEA who’ll say we must adhere to it !

I'm sure someone has brought this up already, but Michael Crichton exposed this exact type of fraud years ago in his fiction novel "State of Fear". He references legitimate weather and climate journals in the scientific arena that explicitly support the idea that Global Warming is either not happening, or happening on an extremely smaller scale than we realize. None of what the above news article is saying is new. But it has become so trendy and popular to portray yourself as "green" and "environmentally conscious" that to say global warming is not happening could subject one's self to a reactionary witch hunt as if though one had just stated the Holocaust never happened. I believe that you can acknowledge that there is strong peer-reviewed scientific literature supporting that global warming is not taking place, and still be "green" and "environmentally conscious". But lets not behave like the trendy green hippie folks that don't even necessarily understand the science behind the whole "green" philosophy they so blindly follow. It's time to start understanding the facts behind what causes Global Warming and think cynically.

Anonymous's picture

If you really want to make an argument against global warming that has been increased by humans, I suggest you go into environmental science and start doing your own experiments and studies, rather than focusing on arguing through words, because science is where your arguments are lacking. There has not been one scientific study that has been able to explain a) what else could be causing it and b)why putting so many greenhouse gasses in the air would NOT cause an increase in global warming. In reference to the last point, we have done many experiments and have known for many years that gasses like carbon dioxide make enclosed spaces, from inside a box to the earth's atmosphere, hotter. And humans have been releasing a LOT of carbon dioxide, more than the global system usually does.

I am assuming here, of course, that you are a smart person and realize like everyone, even people who argue against global warming caused by humans, that the earth is warming up. It doesn't take a climatologist or even a high-school student to understand that data. I am also assuming that you realize the significance of the earth warming up even a degree. In terms of average climate, the warming of one degree should happen over thousands of years, not hundreds, and it has a large effect on everything from sea level to ecosystems. The nation of Maldives may have to buy new land if it is going to survive, because the sea level is rising.

It is a matter of empirical, common sense, everyday FACT that the climate is changing. Anybody over age 20 will agree that overall winters are warmer.

Your argument is a logical fallacy, the sunspot cycles occur over hundreds of years, why do you think Greenland was called Greenland?  We are experiencing record cold temperatures, that's why they had to change the term to global climate change.

Great stuff, Mayhem.

The Finnish TV station YLE had a documentation with a similar tone running.
It is available in Finnish and with German subtitles.
There are two interviews in English with Steve McIntyre (Canada) and Richard Lindzen (MIT) in the doc.
The Finnish took samples from trees too and found no evidence of warming and rejected the hockeystick-temperature curve.

Given the almost total reliance of the Russian economy on the revenue generated from the sale of fossil fuels, and given the Russian's lack of achievement in the development of alternate energy technologies, and given the timing of the 'leak' (just prior to COP), is it not a credible possibility that the FSB (formerly KGB) has created this controversy to detract from any progress towards transitioning the world economy from fossil to alternate fuels?

From: ernst.kattweizel@redcar.ac.uk

Sent: 29 October 2009

To: The Knights Carbonic

Gentlemen, the culmination of our great plan approaches fast. What the Master called "the ordering of men's affairs by a transcendent world state, ordained by God and answerable to no man", which we now know as Communist World Government, advances towards its climax at Copenhagen. For 185 years since the Master, known to the laity as Joseph Fourier, launched his scheme for world domination, the entire physical science community has been working towards this moment.

The early phases of the plan worked magnificently. First the Master's initial thesis - that the release of infrared radiation is delayed by the atmosphere - had to be accepted by the scientific establishment. I will not bother you with details of the gold paid, the threats made and the blood spilt to achieve this end. But the result was the elimination of the naysayers and the disgrace or incarceration of the Master's rivals. Within 35 years the 3rd Warden of the Grand Temple of the Knights Carbonic (our revered prophet John Tyndall) was able to "demonstrate" the Master's thesis. Our control of physical science was by then so tight that no major objections were sustained.

More resistance was encountered (and swiftly dispatched) when we sought to install the 6th Warden (Svante Arrhenius) first as professor of physics at Stockholm University, then as rector. From this position he was able to project the Master's second grand law - that the infrared radiation trapped in a planet's atmosphere increases in line with the quantity of carbon dioxide the atmosphere contains. He and his followers (led by the Junior Warden Max Planck) were then able to adapt the entire canon of physical and chemical science to sustain the second law.

Then began the most hazardous task of all: our attempt to control the instrumental record. Securing the consent of the scientific establishment was a simple matter. But thermometers had by then become widely available, and amateur meteorologists were making their own readings. We needed to show a steady rise as industrialisation proceeded, but some of these unfortunates had other ideas. The global co-option of police and coroners required unprecedented resources, but so far we have been able to cover our tracks.

The over-enthusiasm of certain of the Knights Carbonic in 1998 was most regrettable. The high reading in that year has proved impossibly costly to sustain. Those of our enemies who have yet to be silenced maintain that the lower temperatures after that date provide evidence of global cooling, even though we have ensured that eight of the 10 warmest years since 1850 have occurred since 2001. From now on we will engineer a smoother progression.

Our co-option of the physical world has been just as successful. The thinning of the Arctic ice cap was a masterstroke. The ring of secret nuclear power stations around the Arctic circle, attached to giant immersion heaters, remains undetected, as do the space-based lasers dissolving the world's glaciers.

Altering the migratory and reproductive patterns of the world's wildlife has proved more challenging. Though we have now asserted control over the world's biologists, there is no accounting for the unauthorised observations of farmers, gardeners, birdwatchers and other troublemakers. We have therefore been forced to drive migrating birds, fish and insects into higher latitudes, and to release several million tonnes of plant pheromones every year to accelerate flowering and fruiting. None of this is cheap, and ever more public money, secretly diverted from national accounts by compliant governments, is required to sustain it.

The co-operation of these governments requires unflagging effort. The capture of George W Bush, a late convert to the cause of Communist World Government, was made possible only by the threatened release of footage filmed by a knight at Yale, showing the future president engaged in coitus with a Ford Mustang. Most ostensibly capitalist governments remain apprised of where their real interests lie, though I note with disappointment that we have so far failed to eliminate Vaclav Klaus. Through the offices of compliant states, the Master's third grand law has been established: world government will be established under the guise of controlling man-made emissions of greenhouse gases.

Keeping the scientific community in line remains a challenge. The national academies are becoming ever more querulous and greedy, and require higher pay-offs each year. The inexplicable events of the past month, in which the windows of all the leading scientific institutions were broken and a horse's head turned up in James Hansen's bed, appear to have staved off the immediate crisis, but for how much longer can we maintain the consensus? Knights Carbonic, now that the hour of our triumph is at hand, I urge you all to redouble your efforts. In the name of the Master, go forth and terrify.

Professor Ernst Kattweizel, University of Redcar. 21st Grand Warden of the Temple of the Knights Carbonic.

This is the kind of conspiracy the deniers need to reveal to show that man-made climate change is a con. The hacked emails are a hard knock, but the science of global warming withstands much more than that.

"This is the kind of conspiracy the deniers need to reveal to show that man-made climate change is a con. The hacked emails are a hard knock, but the science of global warming withstands much more than that."

The science of AGW will withstand the science's advocates falsifying, hiding, and manipulating the data they present to support their theories, while conducting an incestuous circle-jerk of "peer review"? That's not science, that's blind faith and apologetics.

4 out of 5 circle jerk dentists recommend Oral B. We alway keep one person out of the circle jerk to use as ridicule bait. Meanwhile while employing our methodology our commercials get met with hostility such as "Shut the fuck up and put the stupid nylon bristles in the stupid nylon stick, I'm not giving you 8 bucks for a toothbrush you dicks."

Given the almost total reliance of the Russian economy on the revenue generated from the sale of fossil fuels, and given the Russian's lack of achievement in the development of alternate energy technologies, and given the timing of the 'leak' (just prior to COP), is it not a credible possibility that the FSB (formerly KGB) has created this controversy to detract from any progress towards transitioning the world economy from fossil to alternate fuels?

Regardless of whether the global warming is occurring or not, I think it is silly to question the fact that increasing CO2 levels, along with other forms of pollution, isn't the best thing for the environment and humans.

For those who think all this alarmist and environmentalist push hidden agendas, please do the rest of us a favour and conduct a simple test as follows:
1. Park your car in a private garage (it has to be small - like a house/townhouse garage; public parking wouldn't do)
2. Close the garage doors and windows
3. Leave the car running
4. Sit down beside it
4. Run the experiment for an hour. Then, post your findings here

Cheers and enjoy your home project!

C02 will get you every time errrrrr ummmm I mean C0 will get you every time - CO2 is the stuff humans exhale and plants "breathe" so to speak - C0 is the stuff that comes out of the tail pipe of most automobiles.

So how about sitting in your garage with a Ficus benjamina

Hmmm: some people have issue with Dr. Ball being the truth savior:

Dr. Ball can't even tell the truth about his own resume. His claim to be the first Climatology Ph.D. in Canada is a total falsehood; his degree was in historical geography - not climatology - and it was nowhere near the first ever granted to someone writing vaguely in the field. It also was granted by the university as a doctor of philosophy, not the more prestigious "doctor of science" that Ball claims in these articles.

He claims as well to have been a professor (again of climatology) at the University of Winnipeg for 32 years, while he confirmed in his own Statement of Claim in a pending lawsuit (look here ) that he was a professor (of geography, never climatology) for just eight years.

Dr. Ball claims never to have been paid by oil and gas interests, but if you look here , you'll find a Globe and Mail story in which Dr. Barry Cooper, the man behind Ball's former industry front group, the Friends of Science , offers this clumsy admission: "[The money's] not exclusively from the oil and gas industry," says Prof. Cooper. "It's also from foundations and individuals. I can't tell you the names of those companies, or the foundations for that matter, or the individuals."

Wait... will this happen before or after the Ukrainian weaponized flu that Mayhem posted about last week?!? I am so confused. You remember, the one that turned out to be totally bogus.

I was wondering how long ZH "radical" take would take to reveal its neoliberal foundations. Nice going guys,

You obviously drank the kool aid on environment change being a scam a long time before these hackers. Proof of climate change as a result of human activity is established. It doesn't depend solely on one set of data or one researcher. You, "project mayhem', are obviously an avid Fixed News watcher. An I'm sure you believe that NASA faked landing on the moon. So, light a big fat cigar. Stick your head in a plastic bag and breath it in baby, breath it in. One less rotted head to deal with...

Another Greenshirt fascist weighs in on the debate.

The emails show that data was falsified and/or manipulated to bring up the results these "scientists" wanted, resulting in collusion and incestuous "peer review" to legitimize the studies. When skeptics requested the data to cross-check the claims, these "scientists" either hid the data or "lost" the research. The so-called established "proof" you speak of has been faked, as the emails clearly show.

Your post reflects the ranting of a simpleton and a religious nut.

I'm puzzled by the timing of this information (just as the Copehagen meeting is about to start).....

 

In April this year I wrote a piece called "eco-logical miscalculations", about the exact same same issue.

I managed to piss of a few fanatics, but that was it...
