If a scandal isn't reported by the media, does that mean it never happened?
For the millions of Americans who don't watch Fox News or listen to talk radio,
the answer is a resounding yes.
Friday, November 20, evidence came to light that "appears to show a conspiracy to falsify data and suppress academic debate
in order to exaggerate the possible threat of man-made global warming." Translation:
The global warming movement rests almost entirely on the IPCC's claim
to represent the "consensus" of climate
science. That entire movement now stands discredited.
In the face of this absolutely shameful and possibly criminal revelation of chicanery,
deceit and manipulation of data
the mainstream media has stuck to their decades long policy of ignoring any evidence
or opinion that challenges their firm belief that the world is undergoing a climate crisis. A
crisis that can only be rectified if all global citizens drastically change their
Despite these revelations, the AP's science writer continued reporting
on the worsening climate
non-crisis, "Since the 1997 international accord to fight global warming, climate
change has worsened and accelerated — beyond some of the grimmest of warnings made
back then." Scary stuff, if it were true.
CNN chimed in, reporting their own shocking headlines: Sea Level Rise Could Cost Port Cities
. Remember, this 'news' story was published after evidence had come
to light that credibly challenged the very facts CNN was reporting. Yawn.
Six days after this scandal came to light, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and NBC had yet
to make their viewers aware
of what is being called "the greatest
[scandal] in modern history." A scandal that could derail
the whole concept of man-made
global warming. And, coincidently, the $129 billion carbon market that rests on
this shaky and manipulated data.
Also ignoring this scandal is our very own president, who announced last Wednesday
that he will attend the long-anticipated, high-stakes global climate summit in Copenhagen.
Obama's climate czar, Carol Browner, announced on the very same day that global warming science is "settled.'
No need to even address
those pesky e-mails that purport to show differently.
"I'm sticking with the 2,500 scientists. These people have been studying this issue
for a very long time and agree this problem is real," said Ms. Browner. The 2,500
hundred scientists, by the way, are comprised mainly of United Nations bureaucrats
who have a vested interest in the massive wealth re-distribution that they suggest
as a solution to this non-crisis.
On Thursday, more evidence of climate chicanery came to light - but was again ignored
by the media. Gerd Leipold, the outgoing leader of Greenpeace, admitted that his
organization's recent claim that the Arctic Ice will disappear by 2030 was "a mistake."
Also on Thursday, information surfaced that indicates New Zealand, also, appears
to have been tinkering with raw data
in order to make "global warming'
appear scarier that it really is.
Again, no mention was made in the U.S. media. Oh, CNN did finally acknowledged the
issue yesterday by reporting that there was "very little context"
in the e-mail evidence. CNN declined
to publish any of the damning e-mails and they failed to identify any of those 'leading
scientists' whose work has been shown to be a possible fraud.
Those 'leading scientists' then continued with business as usual, issuing another dire proclamation,
"Tackling climate change
will help prevent millions of deaths among people who are alive now and save the
world for future generations."
These same scientists then responded to the damning evidence
to the contrary in the
usual way. By attacking and discrediting the motives of the messenger. "We're facing
an effort by special interests who are trying to confuse the public," said Richard
Somerville, Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Scripps Institution of Oceanography
and a lead author of the UN IPCC Fourth Assessment Report.
As of this writing, Fox News
the only national outlet reporting on this scandal. Website WattsUpWithThat
Canada Free Press
appear to be the only
media investigating the hacked e-mails that seem to show a decades long conspiracy
to fudge climate data and squelch any and all opposing data and scientists.
The 'garbage-in, garbage-out' climate models the IPCC use as proof of global warming
now appear to be false. Global 'leaders' conveniently ignore
the burgeoning scandal and continue to insist that unless a massive re-distribution of global wealth
is immediately enacted, global warming will threaten every man woman and child on
Americans can disagree on the extent of climate change and even question man's role
in it. The issue at hand however, is the fact that the media, whose job is to report
facts, has declined to do so. The media, with Fox News as the only exception, have
bought into Dan Rather's "fake but accurate" view of the so-called 'global-warming'
Father Earth, Algore sums it up best: “This is not a political issue, or a scientific
issue or a psychological issue – it’s a moral issue. If anything it’s actually a
spiritual issue.” There you have it. If you don't agree with the unscientific 'consensus'
than you're a really stupid, bad and immoral person. The left has spoken and the
media agrees. Case closed.

Comedy Central Scoops Network News On Climate-Gate
The network news broadcasts have ignored a growing scandal over evidence of a potential climate
cover-up — and now they've even been scooped by the fake news at Comedy Central.
December 4, 2009:
Day Fourteen and Counting
For the fourteenth straight day, the three broadcast networks have
failed to report on the great and growing ClimateGate scandal on their weekday morning
or evening news programs.
