CLIMATEGATE: If nothing else, the story that toppled the media

If there is anything that so-called “climategate” has accomplished, it has been the exhibition of the epic fail of the main stream media.

(note: in case you still have an “i don’t care” attitude about the dispute the theory that human-caused CO2 emissions are causing the climate to warm beyond what would naturally happen, here’s something to consider.  Americans will see the first direct and huge personal financial impact of this theory this January as President Obama’s Energy Tax Bill goes into affect and most see energy bills rise immediatly on average 30%.  Now, on to the matter at hand…)

The white noise that played on the major “news” networks of ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN, and their jouvenile little brother, MSNBC, in the immediate wake of the breaking story of climategate, was simultaneously astounding, predictable, and to some, final vindication.

CNN has a particularly odd choice in a seemingly 10 year old black boy who now anchors their evening news.  While touting the recession is over and calling the increase in troops to Afghanastan the ‘quote surge’ this lad finally got around to sneering at climategate on Sunday evening Dec. 6th.  He simply downplayed the climate change scandal as an effort by naysayers and those seeking to gain politically and financially from failed climate change policies.  WHAT? Funny stuff!  But apparently this young pup got his talking points from the Obama administration et al, as Barbara Boxer was quoted as saying “the real crime is the stolen emails”, and as Obama himself ramps up to be the headline act at the summit in Copenhagen.

The other channels are even less worth discussing.

Why is this important? Because this is the same media that has hyped every tiny bit of sketchy news that played in the favor of man-made global warming theory for the last 8 years.  This is the same media that is propped up by major congomerates like the GE/NBC tie, that have billions of dollars at stake should the “Climate Summit” in Copenhagen fail.  As old and wise men will tell you, “Follow the money.”

When all of these loose ends get tied together, the media has been disrobed entirely as the cheap street hooker of the big corporations and liberal leftists that we have been suspecting her of.  Climategate, however, has finally shined a bright spotlight on her vinereal disease ridden state that is the result of final result of a sell-out career.

To her, and to her pimps, we say R.I.P.

Bring on the TRUTH.

Truth: At Copenhagen, negotiators are going to try to decide how much rich countries should pay to help poor nations to deal with climate change. If this makes you say WTF, then you are probably a normal, logical, thinker.

Truth:1200 limos, 54 private jets will be utilized during the Copenhagen conference. 

On a normal day, Majken Friss Jorgensen, managing director of Copenhagen’s biggest limousine company, says her firm has twelve vehicles on the road. During the “summit to save the world”, which opens here tomorrow, she will have 200.

“We thought they were not going to have many cars, due to it being a climate convention,” she says. “But it seems that somebody last week looked at the weather report.”

Ms Jorgensen reckons that between her and her rivals the total number of limos in Copenhagen next week has already broken the 1,200 barrier. The French alone rang up on Thursday and ordered another 42. “We haven’t got enough limos in the country to fulfil the demand,” she says. “We’re having to drive them in hundreds of miles from Germany and Sweden.”

And the total number of electric cars or hybrids among that number? “Five,” says Ms Jorgensen. “The government has some alternative fuel cars but the rest will be petrol or diesel. We don’t have any hybrids in Denmark, unfortunately, due to the extreme taxes on those cars. It makes no sense at all, but it’s very Danish.”

The airport says it is expecting up to 140 extra private jets during the peak period alone, so far over its capacity that the planes will have to fly off to regional airports – or to Sweden – to park, returning to Copenhagen to pick up their VIP passengers.

TRUTH: Obama is set to go to the summit reportedly to claim America will “cap” or set limits on emissions. But there is currently no legislation before congress that has a remote chance of passing.

TRUTH: “What we find out from the emails is that Jones and a number of others were using underhanded manipulations to suppress scientific publications that disagreed with the CO2-caused AGW theory. There is no scientific consensus if all the science isn’t being considered.” –

TRUTH: the debate at hand is not over whether or not global warming occurs. The debate is whether or not it is man-made.  The main-stream media purposefully remove this distinction from all reports of those who disagree with the theory of “anthropogenic (caused by humans) global warming”.

TRUTH: Science invariably has politics involved.  That’s because science is invariably done by people.

TRUTH: The key to science is “trust but verify”: you trust the science because you are assured you can verify it if necessary.  The Climategate files show the CRU clique wanted to be trusted, but didn’t want to be verified.

TRUTH: Ultimately, there are billions of dollars to be made off of “global warming.”  “Global warming” was a big source of grants and funding.  “Global warming scientists” got to go to all the best conferences.  The money is tainting the science.
