Climategate: The IPCC Is Over Says UEA Climate Scientist

Could this be the beginning of the end for the IPCC-endorsed AGW scam? UEA climate science professor Mike Hulme has expressed these reservations before. But Climategate is the game-changer that will make people listen. Here’s what he has to say in response to the leaked files:

[Upcoming UN climate conference in Copenhagen] “is about raw politics, not about the politics of science. […] It is possible that climate science has become too partisan, too centralized. The tribalism that some of the leaked emails display is something more usually associated with social organization within primitive cultures; it is not attractive when we find it at work inside science. It is also possible that the institutional innovation that has been the I.P.C.C. has run its course. Yes, there will be an AR5 but for what purpose? The I.P.C.C. itself, through its structural tendency to politicize climate change science, has perhaps helped to foster a more authoritarian and exclusive form of knowledge production – just at a time when a globalizing and wired cosmopolitan culture is demanding of science something much more open and inclusive.

For his full statement go to Watts Up With That.

    An internet driven plebian revolt against the ETS and AGW swindle has made our opposition come to its senses at the 11th hour. The Left/Green useful idiots from the ABC and Fairfax are into propaganda hyperdrive.
  2. Maddie says:November 28, 2009 at 2:35 pmThank you so much for your continued work on this. I’ve spent the past few days catching up and I’m blown away over the silence on this issue. The biggest scam of our generation EXPOSED and barely a word is uttered about AGW being driven by made-up science and if it is mentioned, it’s to reassure the left that Climategate not a big deal.

    It appears getting the truth disseminated is going to be up to good eggs like you. Please, please, please don’t let the MSM be successful in whitewashing this!

    Hey, so the GTS local large tax is bad. Check. While the massive ETS global tied tax is so very good. Got it. That’s Labour Party nuance.

    Ah, how will it go? It certainly IS a load of it. Gee, I imagine that the bankrupt monopoly of the outstandingly dull Oz media will continue to become more boring, useless and irrelevant regards empirical insight into anything based in any self funded and productive known reality. No really.

    I watched Insiders on the ABC this morning and without alcohol.

    Julia Gillard is the Acting Prime Minister and she spoke of the known facts as “the knowEN facts!” Excellent. I can see why she has been so essential to the Labour education revolution, comrades. Who would have thought a university Marxist, trade union lawyer and Labour politician of the left, would be so er, socialist and control freaky.

    Like the megalomaniac wanna be Boy King of the U.N, Kevin zippy Rudd, the Gillard Monster defines all people who use their democratic right to dissent and question as “extremist, sceptics and deniers”, without a sense of originality or a shred of any decent awareness of what “denier” means for Jewish people and people like er, me. Gee, and I thought scepticism was the default essential pillar of the scientific method.

    Nope, apparently it’s based on how many people agree on something. I never knew science could be settled by frauds with big grants, media hacks and politicians. Phew! That’s settled then. To the tumbrels and the firing squads with the enemies of the Glorious Peoples Green Revolution!

    But then her mentor said this, and I kid you not:

    ‘…instead of imparting knowledge, education had to be “part of a socialist struggle for equality, participation and social change, rather than an instrument of the capitalist system”. Was it Lenin, Marx, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot or Che the child killer Guevara?
    Nope. Ex-Victorian Labour Premier Joan Kirner In a speech to the Fabian Society in the mid-1980s.

    Now THAT’S funny.

    And who said this rather recently? “What is at stake is to launch a reform process of the general UN system in view of fostering a new global agenda and building a New World Order.” The U.N did, and who is in charge of that brief? The person who said this:

    “I sounded it out first with Tony Blair and Gordon Brown [who are supporters and held a meeting for this insane smiley faced fascist plan at 10 Downing Street. No really.] and “they said, ‘You’d be terrific at that…” New Zealand PM Helen Clark and actual long term member of a group called, now wait for it, “Socialist International”.

    And that’s even funnier.

    Dig the U.N’s Earth Charter. It’s a barrel of laughs. http://www.earthcharterinaction.org/content/pages/Read-the-Charter.html

    To watch the ironically named Insiders, [a show that apart from the courageous and lone Andrew Bolt] mentioned Tiger Woods but NOT Climategate/GAIACON once, is er, something that tells you everything about the Bolshevik Knitting Circle that is the ABC and most of the Australian media. No really.

    Now gee, Malcolm Turnbull is an uber-rich $150,000,000 merchant banker. The banks will golly, make big money out of this massive ETS and the rest of the carbon thin air trade et al. Just as Al Gore has made around $100,000,000 since 2001 and is set to become a billionaire via cap n’ trade etc. Turnbull too, is a witless, phony disgrace.

    I’ll wager that like most profoundly unread, incurious logical fallacy spouting politicians and others who babble about “Climate Change” Inc and the faux “science” of it, he could not explain a damn thing about it cos gee, he knows nothing but cliché’s.

    Why? They don’t need to know ANYTHING about it if NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO ASK QUESTIONS. They just need to speak fluent regulation and the resultant cash-flow.

    Turnbull called the Liberal Party “progressive!” Like cancer maybe… It’s supposed to be a Conservative Party, and thus a party of the proven principles of free speech, limited government, low tax etc, and NOT a Utopian socialist one. Not for a long, long time and not even under John Howard, who neither lowered taxes nor reduced government. And like the left and other totalitarian fascists always do, but he’s a pretty much conservative!, he still disarmed the people. What a guy.

    And now nearly every politician it seems, drivels that “the people of Australia” want MORE TAX! Riiight. I know I do. Er, no. These mediocrities can spin any internationalist big lie bunkum they want within their chummy unaccountable, unreachable, unreadable and unwatchable world. No really. Go figure.
