Climategate Derailing Copenhagen meeting

Sphere: Related Content

If you read any news that is not based in the US, you'll see that Climategate is a huge deal. How huge?

The Met Office plans to re-examine 160 years of temperature data after admitting that public confidence in the science on man-made global warming has been shattered by leaked e-mails.

The new analysis of the data will take three years, meaning that the Met Office will not be able to state with absolute confidence the extent of the warming trend until the end of 2012.

The Met Office database is one of three main sources of temperature data analysis on which the UN’s main climate change science body relies for its assessment that global warming is a serious danger to the world. This assessment is the basis for next week’s climate change talks in Copenhagen aimed at cutting CO2 emissions.
So to sum up: at least one third of the data used by the UN comes from this source and it will take three years to confirm or disavow the existence of global warming. That means that we shouldn't see anything from the UN over the next 3-years screeching about impending doom, right? Yeah right, if only.

Copenhagen is being looked at as a sham by much of the world with the exception of America because the media has done Obama's dirty work and dutifully not reported anything about it. This would be why people are getting their info online and the word is getting out in spite of the US media embargo.

Unfotunately for Gordon Brown, the Brit media has more scruples than their Yank counterparts:
The Government is attempting to stop the Met Office from carrying out the re-examination, arguing that it would be seized upon by climate change sceptics.
Got that, can't have those pesky facts backing up those vile sceptics, can we? More here.

The Ten Commandments According to the Al Gore
(In truth, there are 11, but that’s Al for you)
1. I am the Al your Gore, creator of the internet; you shall not listen to climate scientists who do not agree with me, for these use data that is unclean and may contain references that fail to fit my master plan.
2. You shall not take the name of the Al, thy Gore in vain.
3. Pay no attention to the emails behind the curtain, for Global Warming is real, and trust me on this – I am completely objective even though Global Warming is making me filthy rich.
4. Remember to keep holy the Earth day: Drive only a Compact Hybrid, and know that I will be watching you from heaven (in my private jet).
5. Honor your father Al and your mother Tipper - You owe us Big Time, for without the Al Gore and his Tipper, the Earth would slip er..
6. You shall not kill - any climate change bills for these are the manna from heaven that sustains the Al Gore and makes Tipper go flipper.
7. You shall not commit adultery, or more importantly, screw me out of carbon credits – I invented the idea, so these belong to the Al Gore alone; But, if you must, go forth and create your own scam.
8. You shall not steal – That is my job.
9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor, unless he disagrees with human caused global warming, in which case feel free to trash his character.
10. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife because she may have voted for the Al Gore. If not – Covet away!
11. You shall not covet you neighbor's goods, because these will be exchanged for carbon credits (See Commandment #7)
… and when the tablets were completed, the Al Gore looked down upon the millions, dreamed of untold billions, and thought the scam was good.
