If the first release of Climategate emails in November of 2009 wasn’t enough to convince people that a small group of superwarmer scientists have been advancing the theory of man-made global warming through manipulation, this newly released batch (generally called Climategate 2) should convince them.
First of all, why should anyone care if this “small” group of superwarmers is doing bad things? The reason is that this small group controls the dialogue on this subject. It manipulates the data to comply with their point of view; it writes the critical parts of the IPCC reports; it decides what is published and what is not published; and, it punishes scientists and organizations that don’t toe the line. While we are being squeezed financially, they are pulling in millions of dollars in grants and honors.
The people that need to step up and put an end to this charade are the good and descent scientists that have been taken in by the superwarmers. They suffer from a confirmation bias that has to be pretty hard to sustain these days of no global temperature rise, falling sea levels and all the climategate email revelations, just to name a few things. These scientists must stand up against the blind allegiance that their professional societies maintain to catastrophic man-made global warming theory. Certainly there are enough reasons for them to become skeptics. They should be comfortable in saying that until there is more proof and open discussions of the science of the global climate, they no longer are going to support the warmer supergroup. Until that happens, the media will continue to uncritically pass on to the public anything the superwarmers tell them because they always use in their defense “almost all scientist agree with the supergroup”.
By the way, for those of you are under the impression that members of the warmer supergroup have been investigated and exonerated, you need to read up on this and you will learn that the exoneration was predetermined. For one good read on this, see here.
