Beck Ridicules Globwarm Scammers

Glenn Beck points out a good reason why the New York Times doesn't want to discuss the devastating dissemination of the fraud perpetrated by the global warming/climate change scammers. Because their own climate clown was the recipient of some of the emails. You just can't make this stuff up.

This may be one of the greatest hoaxes of all time, yet the true believers are desperate to change the subject.

Sorry, no can do. Even one of the true believers admits the jig may be up.
It’s no use pretending that this isn’t a major blow. The emails extracted by a hacker from the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia could scarcely be more damaging. I am now convinced that they are genuine, and I’m dismayed and deeply shaken by them.

Yes, the messages were obtained illegally. Yes, all of us say things in emails that would be excruciating if made public. Yes, some of the comments have been taken out of context. But there are some messages that require no spin to make them look bad. There appears to be evidence here of attempts to prevent scientific data from being released, and even to destroy material that was subject to a freedom of information request.

Worse still, some of the emails suggest efforts to prevent the publication of work by climate sceptics, or to keep it out of a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. I believe that the head of the unit, Phil Jones, should now resign. Some of the data discussed in the emails should be re-analysed.
Uh, Mr. Monbiot, we're no longer skeptics. We have the truth on our side. It is up to you scammers to prove us wrong now. Or, I suggest, face prosecution for pulling one of the great hoaxes of all time. The world has wasted trillions of dollars now altering our lifestyles over some mythical "global warming" junk science and it's all complete bullshit. It's up to the global warming fabricators to prove us wrong or face the consequences.

The science is settled: You're all full of shit.

There should be immediate hearings on this in Washington, but it'll probably have to wait until the Democrats are booted from office next year. Good luck campaigning on that cap-and-tax scam, folks.

Oh, and for the "new deniers" on the left calling this a "nontroversy," and you know who you are: Your sudden concern over "hacked" emails is fraudulent. We should have seen this under the FOIA, so shove that one you know where.
We don't condone e-mail theft by hackers, though these e-mails were covered by Britain's Freedom of Information Act and should have been released. The content of these e-mails raises extremely serious questions that could end the academic careers of many prominent professors. Academics who have purposely hidden data, destroyed information and doctored their results have committed scientific fraud. We can only hope respected academic institutions such as Pennsylvania State University, the University of Arizona and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst conduct proper investigative inquiries.

Most important, however, these revelations of fudged science should have a cooling effect on global-warming hysteria and the panicked policies that are being pushed forward to address the unproven theory.
They can run, but they can't hide.
However, we do now have hundreds of emails that give every appearance of testifying to concerted and coordinated efforts by leading climatologists to fit the data to their conclusions while attempting to silence and discredit their critics. In the department of inconvenient truths, this one surely deserves a closer look by the media, the U.S. Congress and other investigative bodies.

This is an enormous case of organized scientific fraud, but it is not just scientific fraud. It is also a criminal act. Suborned by billions of taxpayer dollars devoted to climate research, dozens of prominent scientists have established a criminal racket in which they seek government money-Phil Jones has raked in a total of £13.7 million in grants from the British government-which they then use to falsify data and defraud the taxpayers. It's the most insidious kind of fraud: a fraud in which the culprits are lauded as public heroes. Judging from this cache of e-mails, they even manage to tell themselves that their manipulation of the data is intended to protect a bigger truth and prevent it from being "confused" by inconvenient facts and uncontrolled criticism.

The damage here goes far beyond the loss of a few billions of taxpayer dollars on bogus scientific research. The real cost of this fraud is the trillions of dollars of wealth that will be destroyed if a fraudulent theory is used to justify legislation that starves the global economy of its cheapest and most abundant sources of energy.

This is the scandal of the century. It needs to be thoroughly investigated-and the culprits need to be brought to justice.
