after the data scandal became known , i’m surprised that copenhagen went on as if nothing had happened. at the very least ,i would have expected that when 12 out of 48 “scientist” at that copenhagen were connected to the scandal ,it would be delayed to see what is real and what is ideology based lies.

“Gil Scott Heron Says:

The NY Times did an exceedingly poor job covering the so-called climategate. More specifically, the NYT has treated it like a minor scandal rather than the single largest scientific debacle of our generation. This is not an exaggeration.
This website is an excellent resource to begin exploring the issue: wattsupwiththat.com”

Yup, I’d just like to follow up on what jones and mann are accused of (the leaked files provide overwhelming evidence to support these accusations as well): They outlined the process by which the peer review process in climate ’science’ should be subverted.
They discuss techniques used to manipulate data. They discuss DELETING original data so that they don’t have to turn it over to those who have submitted a FOIA request. And I haven’t even mention all the sordid details of what you’ll find in the leaked FORTRAN files…HELLO!
This is out and out fraud by the very people upon whom the UN IPCC relies to provide them with climate science. Thousands of climate scientists rely on the GISS/CRU data for their reports.
So no, this isn’t some minor, non-event. It strikes to the heart of the idea that there are serious problems with the ’science’ and ’scientific consensus’ of global warming.

Afghanistan the “Deadline War”,…what gibberish is this we talk about? I ask you,…what good is a premature, exit-strategy other than deceptive folly, when you leave the undeniable,and divisable, “masked carnage” of thousands upon thousands of innocents! The patronized mantra of collateralized damage,…women,infants,children,handicapped,and elderly will be the unfortunate ones to be irradicated. But,..the decease will always exist for “Blood-shed”,..as Satan drinks in his insatiable vanity. This,… “Good War”,..this self-induced paralysis for rational thought gone terribly awry,…
