Climategate - 4

There has been no particularly relevant news item in the last few days, except Christopher Booker’s superb summary of the Climategate story so far, and the fact that the reaction to the Climategate scandal has grown exponentially in the US, mainly thanks to Fox News, Barack Obama’s Nemesis, and the blogosphere. At the same time the silence of the MSM has been deafening.

Furthermore, James Delingpole wonders what is going on at Google:

I only ask because last night when I typed “Global Warming” into Google News the top item was Christopher Booker’s superb analysis of the Climategate scandal.
It’s still the most-read article of the Telegraph’s entire online operation – 430 comments and counting – yet mysteriously when you try the same search now it doesn’t even feature. Instead, the top-featured item is a blogger pushing Al Gore’s AGW agenda. Perhaps there’s nothing sinister in this. Perhaps some Google-savvy reader can enlighten me…..

Yes, perhaps there’s nothing sinister in this, though.. Enough, let’s look ahead, to be precise when Air Force One will head to Copenhagen for the climate summit (Dec. 9). Here is what Michael Barone has to say about it.


  1. Rob, check out The Drugereport, some interesting articles.

  2. Who could have thought that Google would be in the tank! I let it pass (one can hardly keep up) but I looked for a particular article yesterday and instead I got one I already had and a whole lot of unrelated stuff besides. So ... yes, probably.

  3. Being one of the die-hards on this question, I still see nothing to be too glib about.
    Even If falsifying data and holding back counter evidence won't have too much of an adverse effect, the exponents of global warming responsible for this scandal should resign. How can they be considered professional scientists?

    But even admitting that the fluctuations of temperatures don't concord with the expectations of the 'global warming experts'. There's no doubt that what had long been forecast re. erratic and incoherent climate changes, vast scale flooding, massive annual forest fires, etc., have become a bleak reality.

    Whether one believes that global warming is a natural phenomenon or anthropic, logic decrees that there has never been such an excess of C02 in the atmosphere, and that in any case, we cannot rely indefinitely on the fossil resources that are causing it.
