MSM Still AWOL On Climategate

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!!!

GOOD NEWS:

Even with the American media essentially embargoing the ongoing Climategate story:

  1. We know that the White House and Congress are disconntected, but so are the Media. They know this climate BS is load of junk science, yet they remain silent. It’s the same with schools. Here in California, you would think the ocean has just risen 20 feet. I swear if Obama said tomorrow morning that sun will rise in the west and set in the East, the media would report this as gospel, and then say nothing when it doesn’t happen.

    But worse than that I’m seeing a lot of Sheeple who go along to get along. I know too many people who have self censored (to the point it has become automatic) because not being in step with current trends may cause them trouble . And it has worked well for them. After all, Fashion is so much more a powerful arbiter of behavior than mere decree.

  15. Since we now know that decade was the warmest decade in human existence

    Who’s this “we”?! And what’s there to correct?

    LOL. “In human existence?!” Warmer even than the medieval warm period or or or…?

    It’s not even convincingly established that the last 10 years have been significantly warmer than any other decade. Good lord, but you’re gullible.

  16. just reading the science and filtering out the politics.

    Unfortunately, climate science has become so completely politicized it’s hard to separate the science from the politics.

    I have an idea. Why don’t you drop your links over at Watt’s up with that, or Climate Audit, and the scientists there can help you sort through it.

  17. Anthony Watts is pure politics. He’s into wild stories, like supporting Monckton’s claim that John Kennedy came back from the dead to appoint Bill Ruckelshaus head of EPA to “fix” DDT for Kennedy’s dead friend, Rachel Carson.

    At the science sites I’ve dropped these ideas and links, I’ve gotten a good reception. Most scientists don’t have a problem sticking with what the research shows.

    Have you tried any non-political sites with science interests? Say, Pharyngula, or Not Rocket Science, or Bad Astronomy? Have you tried Robert Park at the University of Maryland?

  20. I’m no expert on the medieval warm period, but for the sake of argument, I’d accept that it was warmer than today (though, of course, that’s not what the climate record shows — that’s based on a few accounts from the North Atlantic area).

    So what? The cause of that warming was not CO2. That the climate was warmer in the past does not negate the buildup of CO2 today, nor does it suggest in any way, any difficulty with the observations that warming today, way beyond any natural cycle, is a result of human-introduced CO2 in the atmosphere.

    But you try to evade my question with yours. The weather record and the climate record both clearly show warming in the past decade. Every year of the last ten has above the average worldwide average temperature for the entire 20th century.

    I’m curious why you omit the facts.

    Like

  21. So what?

    You said that the last ten years were the warmest in human existence.

    That’s why I laughed. That’s why I take nothing you (or your sources) say on this topic seriously.

  22. Without a lick of evidence to support your case, you dismiss the science of the last decade — and then you laugh.

    Santayana’s Ghost laughed, too. Not with you.

    Again, of course, you duck the issue. You have no explanation for why it would be significant if there were a warm period in medieval times warmer than today.

    I also said, “for the sake of argument.” Argument is not what you’re seeking — you’re not trying to get the facts. You’re trying to find something, anything, to support your predetermined view, regardless how wrong it might be, regardless whether there is any information of any kind to back it up — let alone science.

    Typical of fact denialist: You’ve decided you’re right and any contrary view is wrong. You can’t prove it. You’ll claim it’s been evidenced, even though you can’t offer evidence or explain why the irrelevant claims you make would be significant.

    But it takes up space on the blog, doesn’t it?
