Have a look here and read the post. I am at the point where anyone who still believes in global warming as a product of human activity is hardly worth the bother to post to. Typically, they are a form of religious zealot in my experience. As an example, I ran into an old friend that had recently been hired by some firm who spread the gospel of APG-global warming and after a brief argument where I managed to counter all his nonsense with facts clearly in evidence he admitted he didn’t really believe it either but he felt that the public should as “it made them think about the environment in the right way.”
Seriously he actually said that and he wasn’t the first one. So I rarely bother. At this stage if you still actually believe in it, the facts aren’t going to change your mind. But this story is refreshing as it shows how much of the supporting data was presented by those who themselves knew it was false. I predicted some time ago that in a few years, pretty much everyone who claims to believe in global warming now will claim they never did as it gets embarrassingly obvious. This might be a good time to take screen shots of people’s blogs who are still true believers.
H/T our good friend RR. A sample below, but do jump over to gateway pundit and read the whole thing.
If you own any shares in alternative energy companies I should start dumping them NOW. The conspiracy behind the Anthropogenic Global Warming myth (aka AGW; aka ManBearPig) 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 (aka Hadley CRU) and released 61 megabites of confidential files onto the internet. (Hat tip: Watts Up With That)
When you read some of those files – including 1079 emails and 72 documents – you realise just why the boffins at Hadley CRU might have preferred to keep them confidential. As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be “the greatest in modern science”. These alleged emails – supposedly exchanged by some of the most prominent scientists pushing AGW theory – suggest:
Conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organised resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more.
One of the alleged emails has a gentle gloat over the death in 2004 of John L Daly (one of the first climate change sceptics, founder of the Still Waiting For Greenhouse site), commenting:
——– On a related note here is Al Gore just flatulating more nonsense as it occurs to him. This guy is practically a sociopath. I think he has no shame at all.
