NEWSFLASH: Al Gore and RFK are missing since the snow storms have hit the east coast. Al-ber Alert!!! Wait until you see just how stupid Dylan Ratigan of MSNBC is while talking about how global warming is creating the snow storms. (This stupid hick just figured out how smart I actually am.)
Glenn then breaks down the financial problems that Americans are actually facing using real math and real numbers.

ClimateGate? Move along now, nothing to see here, (and this is surely why); even marxists are capitalists are heart. Look at the Chinese.
Climategate: Follow the Money Climate change researchers must believe in the reality of global warming just as a priest must believe in the existence of God.
Last year, ExxonMobil donated $7 million to a grab-bag of public policy institutes, including the Aspen Institute, the Asia Society and Transparency International. It also gave a combined $125,000 to the Heritage Institute and the National Center for Policy Analysis, two conservative think tanks that have offered dissenting views on what until recently was called—without irony—the climate change “consensus.”
To read some of the press accounts of these gifts—amounting to about 0.00027% of Exxon’s 2008 profits of $45 billion—you might think you’d hit upon the scandal of the age. But thanks to what now goes by the name of climategate, it turns out the real scandal lies elsewhere.
Climategate, as readers of these pages know, concerns some of the world’s leading climate scientists working in tandem to block freedom of information requests, blackball dissenting scientists, manipulate the peer-review process, and obscure, destroy or massage inconvenient temperature data—facts that were laid bare by last week’s disclosure of thousands of emails from the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit, or CRU.
But the deeper question is why the scientists behaved this way to begin with, especially since the science behind man-made global warming is said to be firmly settled. To answer the question, it helps to turn the alarmists’ follow-the-money methods right back at them.
Consider the case of Phil Jones, the director of the CRU and the man at the heart of climategate. According to one of the documents hacked from his center, between 2000 and 2006 Mr. Jones was the recipient (or co-recipient) of some $19 million worth of research grants, a sixfold increase over what he’d been awarded in the 1990s.

The lies and deceit about Global Warming are being broken wide open with more information coming in daily, and we are all conspiracists for thinking that maybe something was not tracking quite properly.
The Liberal Party is in turmoil with the resignations of five frontbenchers from their portfolios this afternoon in protest against the emissions trading scheme.
Tony Abbott, Sophie Mirabella, Tony Smith and Senators Nick Minchin and Eric Abetz have all quit their portfolios because they cannot vote for the legislation.
Senate whip Stephen Parry has also relinquished his position.
The ETS is Australia’s version of America’s proposed Cap and Trade and the EU’s various carbon reduction schemes: a way of taxing business on its CO2 output. As Professor Plimer pointed out when I interviewed him in the summer, this threatens to cause enormous economic damage in Australia’s industrial and mining heartlands, not least because both are massively dependent on Australia’s vast reserves of coal. It is correspondingly extremely unpopular with Aussie’s outside the pinko, libtard metropolitan fleshpots.
The lie of global warming makes no difference to the globalist pResident who changed his mind, (like I knew he would), and is planning on attending Copenhagen and pushing the Climate Change Emission restrictions to condemn the world to poverty and control by the UN and the shadow globalists. The globalists are all about controlling resources; energy, oil, gold, guns, food, water, and labor. Can we impeach him yet?
President Barack Obama unveiled a provisional target number for lowering U.S. greenhouse gas emissions that the U.S. will present at next month’s international climate change summit in Copenhagen.
The White House said Obama would offer a provisional U.S. emissions cut of 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020, mirroring a sweeping House climate bill that was approved over the summer. Obama will put this figure on the table “in the context of an overall deal in Copenhagen that includes robust mitigation contributions from China and the other emerging economies,” the White House said.
The Copenhagen talks are aimed at crafting a political accord, with efforts to reach a final, legally binding emissions treaty to follow next year. The U.S. is the world’s second-largest emitter of greenhouse gases behind China, and the president’s attendance will add some much needed weight to the negotiations. “The President’s decision to go is a sign of his continuing commitment and leadership to find a global solution to the global threat of climate change, and to lay the foundation for a new, sustainable and prosperous clean energy future,” the White House said.
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.
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:
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.
