Climategate 2010: The Inconvenient Facts About Global Warming

by S. T. Karnick
Pajamas Media, May 18, 2010

In the wake of the Climategate scandal, panelists and audience members at the Fourth International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC4) indicated growing confidence that the tide is turning in favor of those who believe that manmade global warming is not a crisis.

More than 700 people — including a good many scientists, along with economists, policy analysts, and legislators — have gathered together since Sunday night, discussing the once-settled but increasingly controversial proposition of an anthroprogenic global warming (AGW) crisis. Any triumphalism was averted by a general agreement to explore real-world facts and test the assertions of alarmists. The presenters and audience members continually asked whether the data says what the modelers say it does.

The conference opened with a Sunday evening dinner at which Canadian statistical analyst Stephen McIntyre presented a meticulous history of the hugely influential “hockey stick” graph — which found an alarming rise of global temperatures since 1979 and led to the IPPC conclusion that AGW is causing a global crisis that requires drastic measures. McIntyre had begun publicly questioning the data several years ago, setting off an effort which ultimately led to the recent Climategate scandal, in which it was shown that the people behind the hockey stick graph knowingly altered the temperature record in a way that expanded a relatively common global temperature change into a shocking heat spike.

The scientists’ own words show them as phonying up temperature data “in order to trick you,” as McIntyre noted repeatedly in his presentation, quoting comedian Jon Stewart’s scathing mockery of the alarmists’ attempted evasions. McIntyre quoted extensively from the various parties that perpetrated this massive fraud, but he avoided using such emotionally charged words. Fellow keynote speaker Harrison Schmitt — a Ph.D. scientist and former NASA astronaut — by contrast, embraced the characterization of the Climategate events as a fraud, in response to audience comments in a lively Q&A session after McIntyre’s speech. The questioners strongly criticized McIntyre’s reticence and his argument supporting a central role for government in pressing a climate agenda.

“The questioners strongly criticized McIntyre’s reticence and his argument supporting a central role for government in pressing a climate agenda.”

Yes, NAS (the National Academy of Sciences) does not want the public to know that they used public funds to deceive the public.

Through budget review, NAS has exerted “a central role” in data manipulation and deception about science since the first Apollo Mission returned lunar samples in 1969.

NAS members are justifiably worried that the Climategate scandal might expose NAS’s SOP (standard operating procedure).

A Principal Investigator of Apollo samples (NASA NGR 26-003-057) reported in 1972 that:

a.) Isotopes of Krypton and Xenon in lunar soils had been sorted by mass [Third Lunar Science Conference, vol. 2 (1972) 1927-1945]: http://tinyurl.com/28dglnl http://www.omatumr.com/Data/1972Data1.htm

b.) Isotopes of Xenon in the Earth, the Sun and in meteorites had been sorted by mass and excess Xe-136 from the r-process and excess Xe-124 from the p-process had been added to meteorites from a supernova [Nature 240 (1972) 99-101]: http://tinyurl.com/27lzpy6

http://www.omatumr.com/Data/1972Data.htm

Neither observation was explained by NAS dogma that a nebulous interstellar cloud of H and He formed the Sun and the solar system.

NASA grant NGR 26-003-057 was not renewed, but other studies successfully showed that mass fractionation in the Sun selectively moves lightweight elements (H, He) and lightweight isotopes of each element to the solar surface [Meteoritics 18 (1983) 209-222; European Space Agency SP-517 (editor: Huguette Lacoste, 2003) pp. 345-348]:

Later xenon isotope data from the Galileo Mission to Jupiter confirmed mass fractionation in the Sun [Meteoritics & Planetary Science 33 (1998) A97, paper 5011]:

Questioners criticized McIntyre’s argument of a central government role in climate fraud for the same reason Nixon criticized anyone who suggested that he might be involved in the Watergate break-in: Guilty as charged.

I hope you guys are right – coz if you’re not we’re all dead!

4. Lawrence Oliver, PhD - June 24, 2010

Macca, what are you worried about, nobody gets out of this life alive. The point is to live your life in such a way that you are prepared for your final outcome. Some so-called scientists have prostituted themselves for research funds doled out by politicians with socialist/communistic persuasions. The plan is to destroy the middle class and our way of life through onerous restrictions and extreme taxes. Lord Mouncton warned us about the planned world government through climate change agreements.

5. Larry Swinford - June 24, 2010

The closest thing to anthroprogenic global warming that I see is an obvious rise in temperatures from monitoring stations near airports and cities — sitting in the vicinity of many square miles of heat sinks (roads, parking lots, and building roofs). Deforestation by short-term thinking adds to it. But saying that my lawnmower is helping to tip global warming into an unprecedented catastrophe is an absurdity. Geological evidence indicates the earth has gotten much warmer, and colder, long before man was around to build factories and drive cars.

6. Oliver K. Manuel - June 24, 2010

Thank you, Dr. Oliver, for stating the unpleasant fact of the matter.

The late President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned that the corruption of science might be used to destroy our freedoms in his farewell address to the nation on 17 January 1961:

“The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present – and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system – ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.” http://mcadams.posc.mu.edu/ike.htm

The very tap root of the Climategate scandal sprouted and grew in the US National Academy of Sciences almost from the time of Ike’s 1961 warning!

NAS led efforts to hide and/or manipulate experimental data from the 1969 Apollo Mission to the Moon and from the 1995 Galileo Mission to Jupiter:

Experimental data that cost US taxpayers billions of dollars!
Data that showed the stormy nature of Earth’s heat source!
[Energy & Environment 20 (2009) 131-144; http://arxiv.org/pdf/0905.0704 ]

Thus Climategate exposed the real threat to our security.

NAS is the institution that our political leaders must turn to for advice in a national emergency – a nuclear attack, earthquakes, violent eruptions on Earth or in the Sun, threatening impacts with asteroids, etc.

With kind regards,
