The AGW Racketeering Deepens

NASA has joined the list of key AGW research mainstays that has conspired to hide real climate data in hopes of keeping the theory of man-made global warming alive.

The fight over global warming science is about to cross the Atlantic with a U.S. researcher poised to sue NASA, demanding release of the same kind of climate data that has landed a leading British center in hot water over charges it skewed its data.

Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said NASA has refused for two years to provide information under the Freedom of Information Act that would show how the agency has shaped its climate data and would explain why the agency has repeatedly had to correct its data going as far back as the 1930s.

"I assume that what is there is highly damaging," Mr. Horner said. "These guys are quite clearly bound and determined not to reveal their internal discussions about this."

The more this scandal unfolds, the more I'm stunned by the scale of it all. It appears that the entire AGW movement is based upon politically manipulated data designed to keep providing billions of dollars in research grants flowing to those who would forsake their integrity and objectivity in an organized conspiracy to defraud every last human being on planet Earth.

This shouldn't be just a matter of questioning science, but the subject of an international racketeering investigation that should encompass thousands of scientists and researchers, grant writers, scientific advisors in the world's governments, politicians (up to and including current heads of state) and activists such as former Vice President Al Gore.

It would seem to me that if individuals and groups in the investigation knew about or were manufacturing compromised, manipulated, or outright false data that were being used to determine the laws and policies of states, nations, and the international community, then those colluding would be guilty of something akin to treason.

Do you thank that overstated? Entire economies would be drastically and fundamentally altered by suggestions made by these perpetrators, affecting the lives of billions of people far more profoundly than espionage, terrorism, or even most wars.

I think a death sentence would be too extreme for even the worst of the culprits, but serious felony charges should be considered, and life sentences would seem more than fair for those that would put billions of lives at risk over what increasingly seems to be nothing less than naked greed and the pursuit of power and influence.

I suddenly though about one of the counter arguments to the Truther movement: It is not possible for the US government to have secretly planted explosives in the Twin Towers on 9:11. The truth would have come out.

Kind of like Glimategate.

This is all so depressing. I'm starting to wonder if the entire government and everything it touches is corrupt. OK, maybe not. I still have respect for the military. Can anyone show me why I'm unfairly cynical?

I would so love to see video of Algore doing the perpwalk. Would gladden my heart so this Christmas season.

Let us all keep this push for pursuit of truth going.The counrty, the planet cannot afford for this hoax to proceed. If tens of trillions of dollars will (supposedly) only change the temps by 7/100 of a degree, is that something a wise investor would throw money into?

Human caused gobal warming has be so ideologically oversold and wedded to politics and money, I am unfortunately skeptical whether you can find a good objective body of scientists out there now who could fairly reevaluate the data.
When I was taking a Project Management course I had a teacher who said that you should always be glad for the team curmudgeon, the contrarian, because he or she made you stick to reality and defend your points with dry reason. It sounds like climate science needs a good dose of this attitude to clean it up. But, like I said, with so much money, politics and ideology poisoning the well, I don't see this coming out of the scientific community anytime soon. I hope I am wrong. Perhaps public pressure will force the issue enough to make reverse the trend.
