Secrecy in science is a corrosive force —
The malice, mischief and Machiavellian manoeuvrings revealed in the illegally hacked megabytes of emails from the University of East Anglia’s prestigious Climate Research Unit, for example, offers a useful paradigm of contemporary scientific conflict. Science may be objective; scientists emphatically are not. This episode illustrates what too many universities, professional societies, and research funders have irresponsibly allowed their scientists to become. Shame on them all.
The source of that shame is a toxic mix of institutional laziness and complacency. Too many scientists in academia, industry and government are allowed to get away with concealing or withholding vital information about their data, research methodologies and results. That is unacceptable and must change.
Only recently in America, for example, have academic pharmaceutical researchers been required to disclose certain financial conflicts of interest they might have. On issues of the greatest importance for public policy, science researchers less transparent than they should be. That behaviour undermines science, policy and public trust.
And the UN adds: Leaked emails won’t harm UN climate body, says chairman

It’s quite curious as the western world media continues their La-La-La-can’t-hear-you chant, Pravda, yes that Pravda, is actually doing real journalism. Try this sample for size:
‘Climategate’ is not an ordinary case of falsifying data by a few rogue scientists. The fraudulent theory of Global Warming has provided the basis for an international political movement which has the stated goal of completely restructuring the entire global economy based on that fraudulent theory. ‘Global Warming’ is a con game perpetrated by dishonest scientists and the government and corporate leaders who provide the corrupt scientists with opportunities for advancement.
If we fail to stop the further politicization and institutionalization of the fraudulent theory of Global Warming, we will most certainly experience a future of ‘science’ controlled by government decree and of a world government that facilitates the operations of corporate industries while imposing severe restrictions and arbitrary taxes on the general public.
That is a future which would fully justify resistance and rebellion among the international populations who will be the victims of this massive global fraud. If we fail to stop this fraudulent enterprise by legal means, we will certainly have a future of global oppression based on fraud, with its attendant institutionalized crimes, and whatever popular backlash might eventually result.
The source is here:
According to recent statements by the EU’s President, Herman van Rompuy, the year 2009 will mark the first year of global governance. The EU President, a former Belgian Prime Minister, mentioned this in a recent speech upon confirmation of his presidency. Said the newly confirmed EU President, “2009 is the first year of global governance with the establishment of the G20 in the middle of financial crisis. The climate conference in Copenhagen is another step towards the global management of our planet.” This claim has given rise to fears of a possible coup of the American government if the proposed Copenhagen Climate Treaty is signed by President Obama in December.

I wonder how many billions Al Gore investors are going to loose on the fraud?

Science has taken a big hit with the global warming fraud. There needs to be some steps taken quickly to avoid all science from being sucked down the same rat hole … American Thinker has some details here. Time for action is short.

On one side of the ring is Aleksey Kokorin, Head of the Climate Change Programme at the World Wildlife Fund in Russia. Oddly enough, there’s no bio to be found on Mr. Kokorin’s educational credentials. Indeed, even on the WWF site, he is not listed under staff, board, executives, expert or scientists for the organization. A google search only turns up his name on press releases, which leads me to believe he’s just a hired gun mouthpiece.
In the other corner is Piers Corbyn. A man introduced as an “independent weather forecaster” by host, Dod, and oft addressed by Kokorin as being a meterologist. In reality, Corbyn is an astrophysicist with a Ph.D, and founder of Weather Action. He is the originator of the Solar Weather Technique of long range weather forecasting.

It’s in the software — Read the programmer’s notes, they tell all. The e-mails, they just point out the criminality of the high priests of AGW global warming, they are hiding, deleting, and fixing up the facts about the crime so as to try and escape prosecution of the FOI violations.
Now you know why CRU preventing the release of the software was so important.
Anthropogenic CO2 makes up about 3.2% of greenhouse gases. The New Zealand atmospheric scientist, Augie Auer, wrote that three-quarters of the earth is ocean, and 95 percent of the greenhouse effect is governed by water vapor.
“Of that remaining 5 percent, only about 3.6 percent is governed by CO2 and when you break it down even further, studies have shown that the anthropogenic (man-made) contribution to CO2 versus the natural is about 3.2 percent.
“So if you multiply the total contribution 3.6% by the man-made portion of it, 3.2%, you find out that the anthropogenic contribution of CO2 to the global greenhouse effect is 0.115 percent … that’s like .12 cents in $100. It’s minuscule … it’s nothing.”
