Leaked Emails Confirm Global Warming Is a Deliberate Hoax

Posted by Van Helsing at November 20, 2009 9:52 AM

The jig is about up for the global warming hoax. The Climactic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia has been hacked into, and its emails have been released to the public. Watt's Up With That offers some examples of what the academics paid to play along with this farcical swindle say to each other when they think the public can't hear them. Here's a gem:

I've just completed Mike's Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd from 1961 for Keith's to hide the decline. Mike's series got the annual land and marine values while the other two got April-Sept for NH land N of 20N. The latter two are real for 1999, while the estimate for 1999 for NH combined is +0.44C wrt 61-90.

Apparently even climate scientists have noticed that it's been getting colder, not warmer; that's why they have to fudge the numbers.

At least some of these people have a conscience:

I'm not too comfortable with this, and would rather not sign — at least not without some real time to think it through and debate the issue. It is unprecedented and political, and that worries me.

Everything having to do with "climate change" is political, all right.

The Green People are engaging the population with what has been coined by some as "DEMAND DESTRUCTION"

Even if you could spread the truth, it will not change the reality that more than 50% of the population wants the other 50% dead at this point. Green is simply the New Red and this is how all purges begin!

Gee.... Is there REALLY any suprise to this revalation?

Anyone with any sense at all knows how much of a lie global warming is. They also know how completely foolish it is to listen to a has been political hack like al Gore. Considering the first rule of ALL communists like Odumbo and Gore is to lie, is it really any wonder the truth has come out.

My only regret is it didn't happen sooner!

Posted by: Michelle at November 20, 2009 10:45 AM

It's no surprise. For now, we'll see Liberals first pretending this is a non story, then attacking those reporting it. Then finally scamper like the roaches they are when "Climate change" will be politically toxic. Fortunately we have more than enough videos, audio clips to make sure none of the scums supporting this joke will be re-elected. As an added bonus, this will officially make the Nobel Peace prize worthless, it was already with Chairman Zero's own, but giving it to a criminal fraud like Al Gore will be their final gasp.

So, the folks who were obviously full of used food and trying to gain power with fake data turn out to be...full of used food and trying to gain power with fake data?

Never saw that coming.

Why aren't moonbats commenting on this post?

Jay and Michelle, this could very well BE a surprise for a lot of people. The crowd we get here is NOT mainstream America, in the sense that we're way more politically informed.

Most people are busy with kids, jobs, bills...they hear the news as a background narrative and the left is acutely aware of this. "Global Warming" is that thing they half-hear about on the news. "Oh that. It's something to do with polution and the North Pole melting, right?"

These folks recycle and vote "yes" on "helping save the planet" issues because they genuinely think it's a problem and we should do something.

When you give them the facts, they resist (usually) then get that "are you f#*cking KIDDING me?" look in their eyes when the truth dawns on them and they see the scam.

Keep on spreading the truth!

Hahaha, I love it. A vast left-wing conspiracy, and this after they've accused the right of conspiracies.

Algore will try to excuse all this away.............

OMG the sky is falling and we will all be under water in 10 years. Our only recourse is to tax the industrialized countries into the stone age.... Is anyone surprised by this?

Posted by: Uncle Spam at November 20, 2009 12:36 PM

These won't matter to the emotionally crippled left. They never cared about facts anyway. Even our children have this crap etched into their minds now. mmmmmmm mmmm mmmmmmmm.

LIES, All LIES. Don't you know that the earth's core is at least TWO MILLION DEGREES. Some scientist said that recently, but I can't recall his name.

And no, this will not end the batshit insanity of 99.9% of the white women who've "gone green".

This vast left wing conspiracy is just part of the vast right wing conspiracy.

Yup, in a few years, we'll see all those "going green" signs, tags and bumper stickers disapear, those headless chicken shelling money just to be "green" will shut up pretty quickly about "saving the planet" (how arrogant is this?) To quote Georges Carlin... "This planet endured ice ages, titanic eruptions and violent earthquakes, you really think a fucking plastic bag on the ground is killing it?" Good old George, we miss you.

Who's surprised... really

Posted by: Reaganite Republican at November 20, 2009 2:11 PM

I was stopped on my way into the library today and asked by a newspaper reporter what I was thankful for this Thanksgiving. I told him I was thankful that the hacked emails showing that so-called climate scientists admit to each other that global warming is a hoax had been released.

Posted by: TrickleUpPolitics at November 20, 2009 2:28 PM

This is VIRAL now! Have a look at this tech site...

I don't know about any of you but it is time to END the green revolution before anyone gets hurt. I hate pollution and like it when humans keep their places neat and clean. That said, we must remember that THEY insist that Cap & Trade is necessary to offset human and animal CO2 production. This DEMAND DESTYRUCTION mentality is in place to implement a Global Government and a World Tax! It is that simple and we must stop this!

Or else hang em all!

Still no moonbats commenting. Maybe we can find some in a Palin thread.

Al Gore the wealthy lying green hypotcrit needs a kick in the pants

Posted by: Spurwing Plover at November 20, 2009 2:53 PM

"Progressives" are doing the "overwhelm them with stuff" tactic. Scream about global warming. Someone shows it's BS, they're already screaming about health care. That goes sour? The yelling is about "social justice".

They just keep the crap coming, and when you pin them to the mat with facts, they're already onto the next "crisis".

They know exactly what they're doing. Watch tomorrow night...this "test" vote will be what Harry Reid needs to get Obama-care passed. No, tomorrow night's vote isn't on the bill itself, but it'll put it over the top if he gets a few of the "soft-moderate" Dems on board.

WATCH THESE BASTARDS LIKE A HAWK. THEY ARE FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES AND THEY KNOW IT! We can end this all now and send them running for decades to come...or they'll prevail and the Light will be turned out, maybe for good.

"""Al Gore the wealthy lying green hypotcrit needs a kick in the pants

Posted by: Spurwing Plover at November 20, 2009 2:53 PM"""

That's it, just a kick in the pants? How about he returns his Nobel Prize? How about he returns the MILLIONS he has fleeced the US and the world for? How about he is tried for subversion and treason and then if found guilty be hung by the neck or brought before a firing squad? What about Al is forced from his Vice Presidential income and has his security detail removed? Here we are not simply talking about a "Boy who cried WOLF" but instead a subversive that intends to have every man, woman and child in America pay a tax for what amounts to BREATHING. Shouldn't his breath be taken away just as he would have us suffer?

Global boy who cries wolf = Al Gore

Posted by: AlphaOmega at November 20, 2009 3:33 PM

Since the Green movement is based on this it means a total collapse of the movement. Billions have been wasted on bogus regulation. It also means that maybe the burning of fossil fuels was not doing all that much harm and through our government we have made ourselves subservient to foreign sources for no reason at all while we sit on all the energy we'd need for generations.

The added benefit would be destroying the credibility of Democrats and Hollywood liberals.

Where's the real proof that is a conspiracy? I don;t know that much about it but I trust the people who are authorities on it.

What's your question then?

Beats me what my question was. "Lao" has commented twice and I just got here. You've been played again.

Posted by: Lao at November 20, 2009 4:28 PM

The people who leaked those emails are racists.

Thanks for more spewing "Lao". Try expressing your opinions under your own name some time or is that too frightening for you?

I for one am shocked... I actually know Ray Bradley (he was a big wig in my grad school dept). If there was anyone I would have thought I could trust on climate issues, it would be him. VERY disappointed! Whatever could be the motive for this, unless is playing around with data to get more FUNDING, by being "PC" ??

Posted by: Ex-Bat at November 20, 2009 6:04 PM

V the K--this is long but I felt you'd appreciate it. I'm a student at UNC-Chapel Hill, and a missionary kid from Loiyangalani, Kenya. One of my fellow students was pushing the idea of ecospirituality--i.e. earth worship--and my father had the following to say about it. (My father, by the way, built an orphanage in Loiyangalani, along with serving as construction engineer for a windmill project the EU is doing in Northern Kenya...the most environmentally friendly infrastructure project in the world, btw).

"What in the heck is "ecospirituality"? It sounds like good old Pantheism with a sexy new name. Look at the wonderful preservation of the world in countries with a foundational worldview of "ecospirituality". India comes to mind, with the dead bodies floating down the Ganges, deforestation, destruction of most fauna (bad karma you know) along with rat infestations, sacred cows and monkeys, world class air pollution, water pollution, and the oppression of the dalits who are a little further down the evolutionary spiritual ladder (since humans are not deserving of dignity as image-bearers of God).

"Or the primitive African ecospiritist who is at one with his environment without the curse of civilization and industrialization. Who burns 1000 acres of rainforest to harvest a honeycomb; Who turns millions of acres of productive but fragile grasslands into arid desert because of his reluctance to abandon his tribal religious traditions which place a premium on the number of animals he owns and discourage the marketing of his livestock.

"Or the American ecospiritist who is a member of the Rainbow family that meets with all his other ecospiritists in a national park every year for a summer of hedonistic "religious ritual" that leaves hundreds of acres of national park denuded of vegetation and covered with untreated human shit.

"Or the latest ecospiritist iteration from the West that occupies the moral high ground as a planet-savior while hypocritically consuming/wasting more resources than any of his neighbors while demanding that THEY make sacrifices for the common good: Who use that moral high ground to deny basic human dignity and rights to their neighbors and actually steal their birthright from them.

"Some of these folks were in Loiyangalani this year with a grant from National Geographic (they are experts at spending the wealth that others have created), to study the effects of Global Warming in the Lake Turkana basin of the Great Rift Valley. I attempted to dialogue with them on "sunspot activity", and the cyclical nature of climate, as evidenced by both hotter and colder times in earth's history, but they used the standard hubristic academic defense. Rather than employ reason, logic, and truth in dialogue to refute my arguments, they said they were PHD's in climatology and I was unqualified to even dialogue with them… so there!

"So they 'studied' Global Warming effects in the Lake Turkana basin from the comfort of one of the local lodges, while I went to Nairobi on business. A few days later I got a frantic phone call from Loiyangalani asking if I could arrange a medivac for one of them who had a severe case of food poisoning. I told them I would work on it and call them back. Our conversation went as follows:

"Me: Hi John. I found a plane that can divert to Loiyangalani and pick you up this afternoon. The problem is it is a Cessna Caravan, a large turboprop with a huge carbon footprint, and I am sure you would not want to spew all that carbon into the atmosphere to make a diversion for just one person. Fortunately, one of our local traders is hauling a load of dried fish to Kisumu early tomorrow morning and he has agreed to give you a lift. Your extra weight on a ten ton truck will add a negligible amount to the carbon footprint of that trip. This will cause the least impact on the environment.


Me: This is the problem, John. You occupy the "moral high ground" on saving the planet, but you are completely hypocritical. Your lifestyle will not change a bit. All of the sacrifices will be borne by others. You will buy the carbon credits from poor desperate people like my African neighbors who do not understand that the pittance you give them will appeal to their human capacity for self-indulgence while concurrently denying them the opportunity to industrialize and realize the same standard of living that you enjoy… Your plane will be there in two hours.

"John is not alone. Witness the lifestyle of ecospiritist, Al Gore, or Barbara Streisand. I remember reading an interview from Ms. Streisand twenty years ago where she was advocating the abrogation of single-family dwellings in America, arguing that Americans should live in Soviet style public housing boxes in order to save the planet. My copy of "Architectural Digest arrived in the mail that very day and featured, "The Homes of Barbara Streisand". One of them was a mansion constructed of 24" diameter logs build in a pristine area of the Rocky Mountains. Another was a mansion constructed on an unspoiled section of seashore off the Pacific Coast. I think the third was a penthouse in New York City.

"What about your classmates? Do they have any idea of the consequences the policies of these ecospiritists will have on their poor neighbors… or the environment for that matter. They must be careful not to be tools of those whose answer for saving the planet usually ends up being some totalitarian system of control which wrecks the economy (and good environmental management costs a lot of money and can only be done in countries with strong economies), and tramples human rights and dignity. The former Soviet Union and the present Communist Government of China, exercised/exercises TOTAL control of their subjects and environment. It has been a disaster for both.

"The free governments of the West (with their underlying Judeo-Christian worldview stressing the "stewardship of the natural world) have made mistakes in this area, but still have the best record of real Environmental Management in the world. I would encourage your classmates to refrain from jumping on anyone's bandwagon until they have not only exhausted the debate on ideas but have enough life-experience to understand the consequences of those ideas in real life."

And that's the problem, science does not depend on authority for its findings.

Posted by: J at November 20, 2009 8:52 PM

What are we going to do now. We can't start over, these same people conveniently lost the original temp logs. I guess we just have to assume the contaminated data is accurate enough. I am sure this would meet all the scientific criteria to keep the debate of climate change going.

As long as people keep watching the idiot box,(tv) they will keep being conditioned and will keep being reinforced in they're brain that Global warming exists. OMG, how stupid can people be if they don't see that Al Gores carbon offsets are a complete scam!! What an insane idea, and he's getting away with it. This world is really making me sick!!

Suited up and went to DU to check their reaction to this story. Check out this, specifically posters "notesdev" and "rayofreason." They're rational, articulate, and intelligent. No idea what they're doing on DU.

Glad to see someone had the balls to expose the haox. Al Gore should get hung for this, hopefully cap and tax is dead now and Barbra Boxer can get thrown out of office.
