Penn State warmer, part of the warmergate scam, is under investigation:

Penn State Will Investigate 'Climategate'

The Penn State administration plans to investigate Climategate and determine if it needs to take further action, the Daily Collegian reports. A little more than a week ago, E-mails exchanged among an English university's climate change researchers were illegally obtained from a server and posted online, the report says.

Climate change opponents say the E-mails indicate that climate change researchers—including Penn State Prof. Michael Mann—exaggerated or fabricated global warming data. And, according to the report, some E-mails indicate that the director of the research unit in question may have contacted researchers and asked them to "delete certain E-mails."

Oh, you left this out this part of the article:

"I would be disappointed if the university wasn't doing all [it] can to get as much information as possible" about the controversy, Mann tells the Daily Collegian.


I'm not usually given to making predictions. But I'm going to predict that Penn State will determine that Mann didn't exagerrate anything, and his work is just fine.

One good thing to come out of this is that Ned, the Republican Party, and conservatives in general have now given their stamp of approval to the illegal collection of evidence.

Therefore if someone steals some documents that prove the Klimate sKeptics have been falsifying and manipulating data, they'll focus on the evidence and not the messenger.

The eggheads over at Nature write in an editorial:

In the end, what the UEA e-mails really show is that scientists are human beings — and that unrelenting opposition to their work can goad them to the limits of tolerance, and tempt them to act in ways that undermine scientific values. Yet it is precisely in such circumstances that researchers should strive to act and communicate professionally, and make their data and methods available to others, lest they provide their worst critics with ammunition. After all, the pressures the UEA e-mailers experienced may be nothing compared with what will emerge as the United States debates a climate bill next year, and denialists use every means at their disposal to undermine trust in scientists and science.

The snake-oil salesman knows what's up:

Al Gore cancels lecture in Copenhagen

COPENHAGEN — Climate campaigner Al Gore has canceled a lecture he was supposed to deliver in Copenhagen.

The former vice president and Nobel Peace Prize winner had been scheduled to speak to more than 3,000 people at a Dec. 16 event hosted by the Berlingske Tidende newspaper group.
The group says that Gore canceled the lecture Thursday, citing unforeseen changes in his schedule.

Meanwhile, back in reality:

Over the decade's first nine years, global temperatures averaged 0.6 degrees Celsius (1.1 degrees F) higher than the 1951-1980 average, NASA reported. And temperatures rose faster in the far north than anyplace else on Earth.
...
By year-end 2008, the 2000s already included eight of the 10 warmest years on record.

Oh, those kooky scientists at NASA. When will they learn that they're supposed to ignore their trained observations?

From your postings in this tread alone we can all ascertain that you wouldn't understand it.

Why? What's the scam Ned? What's the grift?

Ned,
Why are you against advancing cleaner more sustainable energy? Do you like sending Billions to the brown people you hate so much every year?

NED, WHAT ARE YOU AGAINST?

If you can't answer one direct question I think you should just go the fuck away already.

Remember, Ned, you're masquerading as a Christian on this forum.

So go easy on the religion-can't-be-trusted talk, OK?

Yep that's what I thought. Ned is just a drive by spambot who isn't contributing in any way to any discussion on this board. He should be removed.

Fisti, like is fellow warmers, is in a free-fall of fear. Their leaders have been exposed as hacks and naked opportunists at a most inopportune time. Al Gore and the "leaders" of this movement have gotten rich off this scam.

What's in it for Fistsi and his fellow parishoners? Lost jobs? A lower standard of living? More world government control? Yep.
