Climategate Plus Ten

November 21, 2019 by


By Craig Rucker ~ Ten years ago the “Climategate” scandal broke. A group of climate scientists consistently refused to comply with public records requests for data and communications concerning their research.  What was the quality of the research the public had lavished so many taxpayer dollars on?  They did not want us to know. Then […]

Beyond Partisan Ideology and Big-Oil Interests: Why Climate Skepticism Thrives

May 9, 2019 by


Cornwall Alliance   ~        By Vijay Jayaraj ~   It is easy to associate climate skepticism with the Republican Party and climate alarmism with the Democratic Party. It’s also easy to brand skeptics as beneficiaries of big oil and proponents of unfettered capitalism and alarmists as in the pocket of big wind and solar […]

Sore Spot: Trump Raised ‘Climategate’ E-Mails Of Liberal Activists In NY Times Interview

November 26, 2016 by


By Tim Graham ~ The New York Times released a full transcript of its on-the-record chat with the President-Elect, and while the liberal media sensed a “softening” of Donald Trump’s campaign rhetoric, climate skeptics were pleased he brought up the “Climategate” scandal that liberals would rather forget. Back in 2009, the Times refused to propagate […]

Climate Change – Michael Mann Hides The Decline In Reports He Says “Exonerate” Him

February 23, 2014 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Warming alarmist Michael ”Hockey Stick” Mann is suing Mark Steyn for defamation after being mocked over his dodgy research. Mann has claimed in court documents that he was in fact found innocent by every inquiry into the Climategate scandal: In paragraph 21 of the Complaint, Mann claimed that there had been […]

Climategate Leaker: Our Civilization Is Being Destroyed By Lying ‘Science’ Elitists

March 30, 2013 by


By Ron Arnold ~ “What if climate change appears to be just mainly a multi-decadal natural fluctuation? They’ll kill us probably.” This private musing between two climate scientist colleagues first surfaced along with a whole raft of embarrassing material in 2011, when the anonymous Climategate leaker who calls himself “Mr. FOIA” leaked his second set […]

Global Warmists Confirmed as Cheats, Liars, Fakers; Pope Still Catholic; etc

March 18, 2012 by


By James Delingpole ~ I wonder how the BBC environment correspondent Richard Black would report it if the Climatic Research Unit’s Phil Jones were suddenly to confess that everything he’d said in the last two decades about the anthropogenic warming threat was total rubbish. I’m guessing something like: “Hero climate scientist announces glorious discovery: world […]

Climategate, Part Duh!

November 23, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba At what point will it finally occur to the pea-brained legion of journalists, academics, alleged scientists, United Nations propagandists, and others still blathering about “global warming” and “climate change” that there is no global warming and that the climate has been changing for the past 4.5 billion years on planet Earth? It […]

ClimateGate 2.0: 5,000 New Emails Confirm Pattern of Deception and Collusion by Alarmists

November 23, 2011 by


By Noel Sheppard Almost exactly two years since damning email messages were released from Great Britain’s University of East Anglia showing a pattern of deception and collusion between scientists involved in spreading the global warming myth, a new batch of such correspondence has emerged that seems destined to get as little press coverage as the […]

BBC Environment Analyst Received 15000 Pounds From ClimateGate University

November 21, 2011 by


By Noel Sheppard For years NewsBusters has informed readers of the tremendous financial ties to spreading the anthropogenic global warming myth. On Sunday, coincidentally  the second anniversary of 2010’s ClimateGate scandal, Britain’s Daily Mail exposed the BBC’s Roger Harrabin for having taken £15,000 from the very university at the heart the damning email messages demonstrating […]

Global Warming Charlatans Feel the Heat

May 31, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba The University of Virginia, after vigorously resisting a Freedom of Information Act (FOI) request for data related to the emails of Michael Mann, was the subject of a court order to make them available. While global warming is known worldwide for its claim that manmade warming would doom the Earth, the names […]

Krugman: No ‘Scientific Impropriety’ in ClimateGate – ‘Hide the Decline’ an ‘Effective Graphical Presentation’

March 29, 2011 by


By Noel Sheppard For many years, conservatives have been claiming that Paul Krugman makes up economic data to support his political conclusions. Proving the point, the New York Times columnist said Monday, “Nothing in the [ClimateGate email] correspondence suggested any kind of scientific impropriety,” and in the truly damning message from Phil Jones, the former […]

Global Warming, R.I.P.

March 13, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba Have you noticed that you rarely hear “global warming” mentioned on radio or television and the term rarely occurs any more in the print media? One reason is that it has been replaced with “climate change” and the other reason is that the only people talking about climate change seem to be […]

US Lawmakers Vote to Strip IPCC of $13 Million

February 20, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt The leading warmist lobby group may have its money tap turned off: The U.S. House of Representatives today voted by a wide margin — 244-179 — to defund the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The $13-million cut, which garnered support from some Democrats, is part of the House’s budget for […]

How Sceptics Are Frozen Out: The Antarctic Example

February 19, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt From the latest Spectator, a gotcha on the corruption peer-review process that the Climategate emails suggested but which Nicholas Lewis and Matt Ridley now demonstrate. Spectator editor Nelson Fraser sums up (the Lewis/Ridley article is behind a pay wall): In January 2009, Nature magazine ran a cover story … conveying dramatic news […]

The Cancun Wealth Redistribution Conference

December 8, 2010 by


By Paul Driessen It’s become a predictable annual rite. Several weeks prior to each global warming gabfest, breathless news stories, editorials, op-eds and pontifications begin hitting the airwaves and print pages, reaching a crescendo as the conference opens. So it was with Copenhagen; so it is with Cancun. Actually, it may be worse this year. […]

All the News The Times Wants You to Know

December 1, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba In a long career as a journalist, full time and freelance, I have sometimes said that I knew something was seriously wrong with The New York Times when I began to see my byline show up on stories that appeared briefly. It’s been decades since I have held The Times in my […]

Lomborg’s Wrong Solution to a Partly Real Problem

November 30, 2010 by


By Paul Driessen and Professor Robert Carter Bjorn Lomborg (pictured) has been energetically courting publicity for his new film, “Cool It.” The film has attracted minimal box office sales thus far, but he has been publishing articles at an impressive clip, in a quest for more exposure, influence and funding. He correctly observes that public […]

Climate Change, No Longer Scary in Europe

November 24, 2010 by


By Dr. Hans Labohm The upcoming climate change (and wealth redistribution) summit in Cancun – coupled with Bjorn Lomborg’s ongoing publicity campaign for his new film – makes one thing painfully obvious. The fight against the delusion of dangerous man-made global warming remains an uphill struggle. For decades the climate debate has been obfuscated by […]

November 20, 2009: The Day “Global Warming” Ended

November 18, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba November 20, 2009 is an important date because it was the day that “global warming” ended. It was the day that a total fabrication, a hoax, was revealed to be the work of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), aided and abetted by a vast network of governmental and […]

Oxford University Think Tank Complains Media Aren’t Covering Climate Change Issues Enough

November 16, 2010 by


By Ken Shepherd An Oxford University think tank is taking the media to task for not doing more to whip up a frenzy about global warming. Apparently the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism crunched the numbers and found that “[l]ess than 10 percent of the news articles written about last year’s climate summit […]

From Desperate Housewives To Desperate Climate Liars

October 14, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba Not long ago, the Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of California, Harold Lewis, caused quite a stir in science circles when he resigned from the American Physical Society. Physics is an exacting science, bound by immutable laws that are true throughout our universe. It was not widely reported to the […]

Callan Jr, Princeton University, President of the American Physical Society. Anthony Watts describes it thus: This is an important moment in science history. I would describe […]

Why Are Climategate Charlatans Still Free?

September 29, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba If I had engaged in activities that involved fleecing the governments of the United States and the United Kingdom of billions in public funds in the name of “climate research”, and it was found that I had manipulated the data to advance the “global warming” hoax, wouldn’t I be facing charges of […]
