“Climategate” Shows Hypocrisy Is Global Warming Evidence Mostly Fabricated?

In November 2009, the University of East Anglia’s Hadley Climate Research Unit (CRU) was caught red-handed fabricating data on climate change. Phil Jones, the head of the CRU, which purportedly consists of some of the pre-eminent climatologists in the world, has resigned in shame. Michael Mann, a Penn State University climatologist who is also at the heart of this collusion, is under investigation.

This false data was used by climatologists all over the world to justify anthropogenic, or caused by man, global warming. The ramifications of this scandal, unimaginatively dubbed, “climategate” by the press, have sent shockwaves through the debate on climate change.

On the same front, NASA is being sued for allegedly manufacturing data on anthropogenic global warming after officially changing their opinion of 1934 being the hottest year on record to 1998 without providing a shred of evidence.

The effects of this travesty are reaching all corners of the globe. India is refusing to go forward with spending their time and treasure to combat this falsehood. Australia has stood against the eco-radical agenda by shooting down a climate change bill similar to the cap-and-trade monstrosity currently being considered in Congress.

And absolutely nothing binding came from the Copenhagen conference, due in large part to the skepticism of the nations in attendance and despite the personal pleas from President Barack Obama, who can’t seem to get anything accomplished these days.

There is absolutely and unequivocally no consensus in the scientific community that global warming exists and is caused fully, or even in part, by humans. It is shocking that these discredited climatologists base their data on the temperatures from the last 100 years. The Earth is billions of years old and has witnessed many variations in temperature.

To use such a limited time span to explain temperature changes for the history of the planet is utterly ridiculous. That’s like saying that because it rained today, it must have rained every day this year. Even still, these charlatans couldn’t show an increase in temperature without fudging the data.

I encourage you to research this for yourself. Take a look at the book, Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1,500 Years by George Mason University’s own S. Fred Singer. Singer, a world- renowned atmospheric and space physicist, analyzes historical data from two millennia.

Do eco-radical liberals come from such privileged lives that they really think there aren’t serious problems in the world like starvation, poverty, war and disease? How do they justify creating problems literally out of thin air? A fact not lost in this scandal is that the climatologists were earning and stood to earn millions more in research grants. I suppose in their eyes if there is a profit to be made then that justifies lying.

The fact is that these eco-radicals amount to modern day alchemists who wasted their lives trying to turn lead into gold. In the end, no matter how much you want something impossible to be true, sometimes it just doesn’t add up.

With this “climategate” scandal, global warming is no longer a legitimate scientific fact – it’s a punch line. It is time that we take the necessary steps to reduce funding for all climate change initiatives at Mason .

It is obvious now that eco-radical groups like the Environmental Awareness Group, the Mason Office of Sustainability, the Center for Climate and Society, the Climate Change Communication Center and the Department of Climate Dynamics base their conclusions on “junk science” and are simply no more than a waste of our money and resources.

Additionally, the audacity of liberals to wag their finger and shout such insults as “flat-earther” to people who simply want to debate the concept of man-caused global warming is shameful. That indignation has turned on them as now only 34 percent of the country rightfully believes that global warming is caused by man.

Senator James Inhofe, a Republican from Oklahoma, perhaps summed up the hypocrisy of anthropogenic global warming the best when he said, “Until this year, any scientist, reporter or politician who dared raise even the slightest suspicion about the science behind global warming was dismissed and repeatedly mocked.’’

Now that time is over, and has been replaced with the shame of being caught fabricating “scientific” data. As Senator Inhofe mockingly proclaimed, “We won, you lost, get a life.” Now let’s please start focusing our efforts on solving real problems.
