"Climategate" & Leaked Emails: Scientists that should be Jailed

Facts from the Wall Street Journal:

3,000 emails and documents of some of the world's most influential climatologists were released in the fall of 2009 after the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit's servers were hacked and messages were published on the Internet.

Phil Jones, director of the University of East Anglia's CRU, and Michael Mann, director of the Pennsylvania State University's Earth System Science Center, were two of the emailers that were focused on.

Among some of the facts that came out: These Scientists urged each other 'to present a "unified" view on their theory of man-made climate change, calling it an important "common cause." They also advised each other on how to adjust data so it wouldn't compromise their hypothesis, discussed ways to keep opposing views out of leading Science journals,  and gave tips on how to "hide the decline" of temperature in certain inconvenient data.

Mr. Jones wrote in 2005, "The two MMs (probably Stephen McIntyre and Ross McKitrick, two Canadians who devoted years trying to obtain the raw data and codes used in climate graphs, then fact-checking them) have been after the CRU station data for years. If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the U.K., I think I'll delete the file rather than send to anyone. . . . We also have a data protection act, which I will hide behind."

Mann and friends also seemed to work at blacklisting scientists who disagreed wth their hypothesis of Global Warming, as well as journals that published Global Warming skeptics' work.

"I think we have to stop considering 'Climate Research' as a legitimate peer-reviewed journal," states an email (said to be from Mr. Mann in March 2003.)  "Perhaps we should encourage our colleagues in the climate research community to no longer submit to, or cite papers in, this journal."

Nice guy.  Reminds you of one of History's worst Scientists - Trofim Lysenko.

You are spot on Grandma. The entire Climategate situation has become one of betrayal, deceit, dishonesty, deflection, and just plain immoral behavior all in the name of power, Green greed, and money. It is great to have you post the truth. Just know that there are many of us out here who agree with you and support your dismay at the hypocrisy in the press, media and scientific community.

Global warming! God bless it! I'd LOVE palm trees in Chicago. Think of how much MORE FOOD we could grow with a climate that gave us more sun. But I know that's not happening.

But the GW scam is just a taxing scheme on the part of the 1% to suck more out of people; to kick them down a little more.
