The scam is revealed, and now there is a blizzard of damning information on the fraud while the country is in the middle of yet more record-breaking snowfall:
The WaPo misleads the public with this headline, Series of missteps by climate scientists threatens climate-change agenda, which A. J. Strata translates into plain English,
It should read “Series of unscientific claims destroys false image of ’settled science’, CRU head concurs”.
Strata goes on to shred the WaPo fallacy,
But you know these journalists who struggled through high school math and science – they are geniuses in their own minds. Let me show how much so:
But recent revelations about flaws in that seminal report, ranging from typos in key dates to sloppy sourcing, are undermining confidence not only in the panel’s work but also in projections about climate change. Scientists who have pointed out problems in the report say the panel’s methods and mistakes — including admitting Saturday that it had overstated how much of the Netherlands was below sea level — give doubters an opening.
Typos? The cries that the Himalayan glaciers would melt by 2035 was no typo – people within the IPCC tried to get that fixed. It was a deliberate lie. How do you typo the claim Africa is going to lose 50% of its food production in 10 years? Is that ’sloppy’ sourcing (i.e., using green propaganda and claiming it is peer reviewed science)? These now proven false and unscientific claims did not give us math and science savvy skeptics an opening – it proved we were right.

Michelle Malkin: The global warming scandal of the century deepens
Ed Morrissey wants to know, Was there any actual warming to begin with?, a good question considering this:
The Times of London delivers a separate blow to the AGW movement today in a report on scientific review of the data used to claim man-made warming of the planet over the last few decades. Several researchers have found that the measurements of temperatures in the AGW record that showed temperature increases mainly came from land development and urbanization, not from actual temperature increases. They have made their findings public through peer-reviewed studies that come at a very bad time for the IPCC and AGW advocates
Roger Kimball has an interesting reading list here, It’s Not That I Like Saying “I Told You So” About “Global Warming,” but . . .
Instapundit has a roundup, too, including links to The Guardian, Foreign Policy, and how Scientists seek better way to do climate report. They could start by saving their data, saving their code, and not stonewalling their critics.
At the end of the parody Hitler asks whether they can go back to global cooling, a theory that was in vogue back in the 1960s and 1970s, as many of us remember. A friend has pointed out that several of the hacks pushing global cooling then switched to global warming once the warming grant money started coming. Gateway Pundit reminds us that
The CPU fraudsters bilked the EU and US for £800,000 ($1,253,624.84) annually for the last 20 years.
As the Hitler parody said, “These are the best scientists money can buy”!
