Oops, ClimateGate is blossoming, as we knew it would considering the magnitude of the fraud and cover-up. It rivals Obama’s winning the Democratic nomination and then the 2008 presidential election. I bet these scientists are wishing they could afford Perkins Coie.
Scientist in climate change ‘cover-up’ storm told to quit
The scientist at the heart of the climate change scandal was under growing pressure to quit last night.George Monbiot, a leading environmentalist, said Phil Jones should resign from the Climatic Research Unit over leaked emails that appear to show researchers suppressed scientific data.
More emails came to light yesterday, including one in which an American climatologist admitted it was a travesty that scientists could not explain a lack of global warming in recent years.

In another note, UK researchers dismissed the work of scientists challenging global warming as ‘crap’.
Another appeared to call for pressure on the BBC after a reporter suggested that evidence for rising temperatures since 2001 was thin.
For those of us that are way behind the eight-ball on this particular issue, let’s recap:
Climategate: the final nail in the coffin of ‘Anthropogenic Global Warming’?
If you own any shares in alternative energy companies I should start dumping them NOW. The conspiracy behind the Anthropogenic Global Warming myth (aka AGW; aka ManBearPig) has been suddenly, brutally and quite deliciously exposed after a hacker broke into the computers at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (aka CRU) and released 61 megabytes of confidential files onto the internet. (Hat tip: Watts Up With That)
When you read some of those files – including 1079 emails and 72 documents – you realise just why the boffins at CRU might have preferred to keep them confidential. As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be “the greatest in modern science”. These alleged emails – supposedly exchanged by some of the most prominent scientists pushing AGW theory – suggest:
Conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organised resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more.
One of the alleged emails has a gentle gloat over the death in 2004 of John L Daly (one of the first climate change sceptics, founder of the Still Waiting For Greenhouse site), commenting:
“In an odd way this is cheering news.”
But perhaps the most damaging revelations – the scientific equivalent of the Telegraph’s MPs’ expenses scandal – are those concerning the way Warmist scientists may variously have manipulated or suppressed evidence in order to support their cause.
Make sure to go over and read the rest if you are still catching up, or considering the lack of time we seem to have right now, check out Stuart Varney on ‘Your World’ interviewing Sen. Inhofe (R-OK) and the investigate that the senator has called for into the climate change hoax.

Frankly hanging comes to mind. You know the death penalty!
When are we going to prosecute all of these corrupt criminals?
the entire Obama administration
everyone in congress who voted for Cap N Tax
all of those greenies
and the respective Scientists
and so on
GAWD, We love the Hackers. PRAY FOR MORE!
Ed Begley…don’t listen to me, listen to someone with PhD after his name…because I have jr after my name which stands for Jerkoff Ridiculous. Someone like this is a proponent for Green/sustainable? Already I’m turned off (Bwaaa…get it?) Well well well…I should be mad as hell, after all the C.R.A.P
(Compromised Research and Pandering) they have put us through, now we get the inside story about what was REALLLLLY going on in those hallowed halls of academia…why, this is the great apostasy, and the world religion has taken a bloody nose and shiner on this one as their High Priests of Global Warming have be shown to be heretics. But I’m not mad. I’m way over that. Right now, my emotion is…honestly…like this: seeeee, we told you so! would you listen? Noooooo. and in spite of this most damning of revelations…Ed Fugley refuses to show the requisite humility in the face of this humilation and admit he, and others have been wrong…very wrong. His stand here shows he is complicit and he should hang along with the rest of them!@!
I do not believe for one minute that this will slow the agenda
of the UN. Keep in mind that you did not see Obama bow, he was simply shaking the hand of a very short person. Facts are what we are told not what we know to be true.
It is not going to stop the agenda of the globalists, but it will wake up that many more Americans to the impending loss of sovereignty. If you thought gun sales had gone through the roof before…
When you consider the costs already imposed due to this fraudulent conspiracy, it has become an international crime. People involved in this FRAUD need to go to jail!
Mike – I am with Letty on ths one – JAIL? Please!
