Even as the Climategate scandal grows and AGW theory is exposed as the hoax it is, Obama, using executive powers, is forcing a “carbon-controlling regime on us”, a regime that would never have passed in Congress.
Now more than ever, we need a media to help expose the fraud, instead of primarily alternative media like talk radio and right wing bloggers. Where is the MSM? Even the state run media in the UK is doing a better job of uncovering the truth.
See Ace for the latest Climate news, (which is coming from the British press):
CRU’s Former Head Phil Jones: Well, I Guess Maybe There Hasn’t Been Any Warming Since 1995, And Oh Yeah, Maybe The Medieval Warm Period and Subsequent Periods Were Warmer Than Things Are Now
Even without the MSM’s help, the AGW scam has people wanting heads to roll, influential people even:
Donald Trump Wants Al Gore’s Nobel Peace Prize Stripped
According to Newsbusters,
“With the coldest winter ever recorded, with snow setting record levels up and down the coast, the Nobel committee should take the Nobel Prize back, ” Trump recently told members of his Westchester, New York, country club according to the New York Post.
When he was through, the crowd 500 gave him a standing O.
Over at the American Thinker, S Fred Singer is predicting The end of the IPCC.
We learn from the e-mails that the ClimateGate gang was able to “hide the decline” [of global temperature] by applying what they termed as “tricks,” and that they intimidated editors and forced out those judged to be “uncooperative.” No doubt, thorough investigations, now in progress or planned, will disclose the full range of their nefarious activities. But it is clear that this small cabal was able to convince much of the world that climate disasters were impending — unless drastic steps were taken. Not only were most of the media, public, and politicians misled, but so were many scientists, national academies of science, and professional organizations — and even the Norwegian committee that awarded the 2007 Peace Prize to the IPCC and Al Gore, the chief apostle of climate alarmism.
In this enterprise, the group was aided not only by environmental zealots, anti-technology Luddites, utopian one-worlders, and population-control fanatics, but also by bureaucrats, businesses, brokers and bankers, who had learned how to game the system and profit from government grants and subsidies for exotic schemes to produce “carbon-free” energy and from the trading of carbon permits. Hundreds of billions have already been wasted — most of this in transfers of tax revenues to a favored few.
Meanwhile, in liberal Lalaland, as the science continues to unravel, Howard Dean charges:
Republicans don’t believe in science
Which is something the left likes to do: accuse their critics of being ignorant rubes who have no idea what they’re talking about. It’s a strategy that often works for them, as many people sign on to their cockamamie theories just so they can be “enlightened”, too.
But Ed Morrissy points out a little problem with Dean’s verbiage:
He vents his frustration at Republicans who refuse to adopt the belief system of global warming, annoyed at the jibes from skeptics over the snowstorm that has socked in the mid-Atlantic region this month.
“One of the most disturbing things about the Republican Party over the last couple of decades is that they just don’t believe in science any more. And that is not an approach that is likely to generate any kind of creative thinking…People who use snowstorms as an example of why global warming doesn’t exist don’t understand the science and they don’t care.”
Actually, we do respect science. What we don’t do is adopt belief systems based on hypotheses from so-called scientists that use incomplete and unreliable predictive modeling, include wild conjectures as fact, pass off student dissertations as reliable research, and accept advocacy claims without testing, all while conspiring to hide contradictory evidence and scheme to ruin the careers of those who question them. Science requires that claims get tested, that predictive models that fail get discarded, that data and process remain open for review, and that critical thinking get welcomed instead of demonized.
The jig is up for the AGW hoaxsters. Someone alert the media.

UPDATE (Feb 16):
One more from Ace: Surprising No One: Liberal Media Completely Embargoes Phil Jones Admissions
We have a childish, petulant, insecure, unprofessional media. It has to be noted again that the British media is covering this story well — even left-wing outfits like the Guardian and the statist-establishment-left BBC.
The science is settled, damn it!!!
Even with the American media essentially embargoing the ongoing Climategate story:
