Turnbull pummelled by climate change skeptics

Quote:
Malcolm Turnbull put the Liberal leadership on the line over climate change before the forthcoming round of climate talks in Copenhagen - and lost.
I think the pummeling should be starting soon on obama.

Follow the money.

All this time, for years and years, the believers have been telling us how much money is behind the skeptics, when all that time, it was actually the believers who were rolling in BILLIONS from governments and institutions from around the world.

We knew this.

According to one of the documents hacked from his center, between 2000 and 2006 Mr. Jones was the recipient (or co-recipient) of some $19 million worth of research grants, a sixfold increase over what he'd been awarded in the 1990s.

Thus, the European Commission's most recent appropriation for climate research comes to nearly $3 billion, and that's not counting funds from the EU's member governments.

In the U.S., the House intends to spend $1.3 billion on NASA's climate efforts, $400 million on NOAA's, and another $300 million for the National Science Foundation.
The amount of money pouring into the GW hoax is amazing....and they want more...trillions in fact, to save the world.

Richard S. Lindzen: The Climate Science Isn't Settled - WSJ.com

The Climate Science Isn't Settled

Quote:
Claims that climate change is accelerating are bizarre. There is general support for the assertion that GATA has increased about 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit since the middle of the 19th century. The quality of the data is poor, though, and because the changes are small, it is easy to nudge such data a few tenths of a degree in any direction. Several of the emails from the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit (CRU) that have caused such a public ruckus dealt with how to do this so as to maximize apparent changes.
Mr. Lindzen is professor of meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

In one of the more telling disclosures from last week, a computer programmer writes of the CRU's temperature database: "I am very sorry to report that the rest of the databases seems to be in nearly as poor a state as Australia was. . . . Aarrggghhh! There truly is no end in sight. . . . We can have a proper result, but only by including a load of garbage!"

how many times have we told the barking moonbats on this forum exactly that - -
garbage in, garbage out?

Yeah, but umm... his title doesn't say "climate scientist" so umm, he isn't qualified! *chuckle* sorry, I had to.

Investors.com - The CRU's Criminal Conspiracy

Quote:
Unimpressed by the news is David Holland of Northampton, a grandfather with a background in electrical engineering, who is seeking prosecution of the CRU scientists involved in suppressing and even destroying climate data in violation of Britain's information disclosure laws.

Mr. Holland filed a complaint with the Information Commissioner's Office last week after the leaked e-mails included several Freedom of Information requests he himself had submitted to the CRU, requests that went nowhere, and the CRU scientists' private responses to them.

CNSNews.com - Inhofe Asks Boxer to Investigate Possible Scientific ‘Conspiracy’ in ‘Climategate’ (http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/57879 - broken link)

Quote:
(CNSNews.com) Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, is calling on Chairman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) to conduct hearings on a possible conspiracy between some of the worlds most prominent climatologists to, among other things, manipulate data on so-called global warming.
How can she have any credibility left if she ignores this? The EPA has based their finding on the CRU and so has her committee.

“This is a difficult issue for many liberals, many Australians, but most people who doubt the science also know that it makes sense to take out insurance . . . to manage the risk and to give the planet the benefit of the doubt until any risk is either averted or proven wrong,” Mr Turnbull said.

In other words - Bah, forget the very real possibility that the entire thing is a total scam, and live like cavemen for a few generations, under an all powerful, controlling government, then... if things turn out okay, and this was just a scam, your great grand children can try to rebuild your country.

This was the actual plan that was projected.
