LA Times Changes Its Mind: Science Doesn't Matter On Climate Bill (Newsbusters)
On November 22, while responding to the growing scandal about alleged proof that global warming is a hoax, the Times brushed it off with a puzzling claim that science should have no bearing on climate legislation.
Global Warming Promoter 'Dismayed and Deeply Shaken' by ClimateGate (Newsbusters)
One of the world's leading promoters of the anthropogenic global warming myth claimed Monday he is convinced the e-mail messages involved in the growing international scandal ClimateGate "are genuine," and he's "dismayed and deeply shaken by them." So said George Monbiot, a writer and environmental activist many consider to be Great Britain's Al Gore.
Monbiot accurately said there's "no use pretending that this isn’t a major blow. The emails extracted by a hacker from the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia could scarcely be more damaging"

As Beck pointed out Monday, those involved also conspired to prevent viewpoints counter to their own from getting published in scientific journals or becoming part of IPCC reports.
Climategate: Final Nail in Coffin of 'Anthropogenic Global Warming'? (Telgraph UK)
If you own any shares in alternative energy companies I should start dumping them NOW. The conspiracy behind the Anthropogenic Global Warming myth has been suddenly, brutally and quite deliciously exposed after a hacker broke into the computers at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit.
Unfortunately, we’ve a long, long way to go before the public mood (and scientific truth) is reflected by our policy makers. There are too many vested interests in AGW, with far too much to lose either in terms of reputation or money, for this to end without a bitter fight. But if the Hadley CRU scandal is true,it’s a blow to the AGW lobby’s credibility which is never likely to recover.
Climategate (National Post)
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and various government agencies have been cooking the books to make the case for man-made global warming. Here is a sampling of some of the exchanges.
* From: Phil Jones, July 5, 2005 - “If anything, I would like to see the climate change happen, so the science could be proved right, regardless of the consequences. This isn’t being political, it is being selfish.”
Oil's Expanding Frontiers by George Will
"careful examination of the world's resource base ... indicates that the resource endowment of the planet is sufficient to keep up with demand for decades to come." Such good news horrifies people who relish scarcity because it requires—or so they say—government to ration what is scarce and to generally boss people to mend their behavior: "This is the police!" Put down that incandescent bulb and step away from the lamp!"
Today, there is a name for the political doctrine that rejoices in scarcity of everything except government. The name is environmentalism.
