So how could dedicated scientists fudge data regarding claims of catastrophic global warming and give ammunition to those seeking policies that would impoverish working people via higher energy costs?
Apparently for the money.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Phil Jones — the director of the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit which was the source of the emails which blew the lid off the lies — received $19 million worth of research grants
between 2000 and 2006, a six-fold increase over what he got in the 1990s.
Wonder how much Penn State’s Michael Mann got?

CanadaFreePress.Com is reporting that the hacked emails from the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit have tied President Obama’s “science czar”, John Holdren, to the global warming hoax.
The emails show that the world’s leading researchers fudged data and conspired via politics to silence scientific dissenters to convince the world that man-caused emissions were causing the earth to warm catastrophically.
Holdren holds the posts of director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and co-chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.
Meanwhile, President Obama is preparing for a trip to Copenhagen where the expectation is that he will cite global warming in pledging to reduce U.S. energy consumption and make us a poorer nation.
A central, if not the central, character in the scandal is Michael Mann, who is director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State. Mann has been selected as one of the 50 leading visionaries in Science and Technology by Scientific American,
This fraud is being played out as though the cover has never been blown by the dying propagandists unaware of their loss of importance. KYW is reporting that “Pa. Ranks 5th for Most Global Warming Pollution” but when I searched the site I could not find a mention of Mann or Eat Anglia or Climategate, which is what the scandal is being called.
Inky Still Mum On Global Warming Scam — Didn’t see a line in today’s (Nov. 25, 2009) Philadelphia Inquirer regarding the now five-day old story showing how respected proponents of the theory that man-made emissions are causing a catastrophic warming of the globe cooked the data to make their case.
And this is despite one of the central characters, Michael E. Mann, getting some of Pennsylania’s tax dollars funneled to him as the director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State.
Katrina Anderson at the Commonwealth Foundation is reporting among those whose discrediting emails have been found in the hacked documents from the Britain’s Hadley Climatic Research Centre is Penn State’s director of Earth System Science Center, Michael E. Mann.
The documents show that top researchers from around the world fudged data indicating that the world was dramatically warming.
Penn State Prof Part Of Global Warming Scandal
One of the greatest scandals in modern science is starting to percolate into the public conscience.
A hacker, Nov. 20, downloaded 62 megabytes of data from a server at the University of East Anglia’s
Hadley Climatic Research Centre, one of the main centers of global warming research, and uploaded them to an FTP site where they were available for the public for a few short hours which was more than enough time for them to be copied and spread through the World Wide Web like aerosol disinfectant.
The data included documents and emails indicating the researchers fudged data to make global warming appear certain and held bitterly emotional hate-filled feelings towards dissenters — not what you’d expect of detached intellectuals confident of their case.
It might still be a few weeks before you see it in the Philadelphia Inquirer, but then how many of you actually still read it?
Do remember that it was this research that was driving the “cap and trade” movement and other attempts to make us a poorer, weaker people.
An agreement was reached, yesterday, to remove four dams on the Klamath River on the California/Oregon boarder and restore a 300-mile migratory route for salmon.
So while we can count on China and Mexico supplying us with the lost food, what is going to replace the electricity? It will come from less insane states and be produced mostly be coal and natural gas plants which pump out greenhouse gases, especially the former.
So why aren’t those concerned about global warming screaming to save the dams? It’s because they really aren’t concerned about global warming.
IOW, it’s bunk.
Reason 1001 Why Global Warming Is Bunk
Joe Sestak was among the 219 congressmen — the vast majority being Democrats — who voted, Friday, to set limits on U.S. energy production, ostensibly to fight global warming. If this legislation passes the Senate it is expected to raise the price of gasoline to $5 per gallon (and the cost of transporting food, clothing, building materials etc.) and double the cost of electricity.
The Dems, btw, killed Republican amendments to suspend the program if gas hit $5 a gallon; if electricity prices rose 10 percent over 2009; or if unemployment rates hit 15 percent.
If these things happen send Joe a thank you note.
And if this crowd thinks global warming is such a crisis why are they fighting tooth and nail to rip down long-standing hydro-electric dams? Why do they push to add snarl-creating toll-booths to freeways? Why do they oppose nuclear power? Why do they insist on applying OSHA regulations to telecommuters?
Their actions belie their words.
