“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Climategate May Spur Lawsuit Against NASA for Denied Information Requests

j0302922There is a new development in the Climategate scandal, the leaked emails from the Climate Research Unit in England which apparently show a systematic pattern among some climate scientists to twist, distort and manipulate data to make it appear human activity is causing our planet to warm up.

Yesterday we learned that leaders in the U.S. and Britain are calling for a probe into these leaked documents and why many statements made by scientists talk about “tricks” and deleting information and other things.

Now we hear at the American Spectator that Chris Horner, on behalf of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, has filed a notice of intent to sue NASA for refusing for three years to turn over information requested under the Freedom of Information Act.

The information sought is directly relevant to the exploding “ClimateGate” scandal revealing document destruction, coordinated efforts in the U.S. and UK to avoid complying with both countries’ freedom of information laws, and apparent and widespread intent to defraud at the highest levels of international climate science bodies. Numerous informed commenters had alleged such behavior for years, all of which appears to be affirmed by leaked emails, computer codes and other data from the Climatic Research Unit of the UK’s East Anglia University.

All of that material and that sought for years by CEI go to the heart of the scientific claims and campaign underpinning the Kyoto Protocol, its planned successor treaty, “cap-and-trade” legislation and the EPA’s threatened regulatory campaign to impose similar measures through the back door.

One of the things CEI would like to know about is the quiet correction NASA made to it’s temperature data a couple of years ago.  The “mainstream” media probably made sure you didn’t hear about it, but an error was found by in their statistical data going back for many years.  The result of the corrected data: 1998 was no longer the hottest year on record, but 1934.

Another relates to Al Gore’s toy, the discredited “hockey stick.”

This scandal in the United Kingdom concerning what seems to be falsified scientific data is far from the first time this has been seen.  In fact, a study done a few months ago found a high percentage of scientists who admit to fudging and falsifying data, and who state questionable practices are all too common in the scientific community.

Anyone who believes the scientific community is above political correctness, political considerations, and the base human nature to make one’s self and one’s ideas look good is woefully naive.  In the world of large research grants and government taxpayer-funded largess, the temptations are great.

But a free people must not allow their freedom or their prosperity to be taken away from them through things like the cap and trade global warming tax, or the UN climate change treaty, when such things are based on the fraudulent idea of anthropogenic global warming.

And government officials who would turn a blind eye to such fraud do not deserve to work in our government.

This thin theory never has held water, and it’s refreshing to see that exposed like never before.

  1. Fraud is what ALWAYS happens when governments and other institutions provide funds, awards, scholarships and other benefits for scientists and scientific “studies”. Without exception, a large percentage of the supposedly honest, rational, observation-based scientists “give in” when they learn their salaries, funding, positions and future depends upon supporting conclusions the money string holders prefer.

    Separation of church and state.
    Separation of science and state.
    Separation of education and state.
    Separation of money-supply and state.

  2. Amazing!

    The data (emails) are right in your face and you still refuse to see the evidence.

    These same scientists threatened my job as a scientist with the US Geological Survey because I attempted to publish a study showing with higher confidence that global temperature changes were completely natural caused solely by Earth's physical processes.

    Additionally, these same scientists would not even discuss or refute the science and facts presented. Instead, they took two days to personally attacked me and my family.

    I always knew that when man-made global climate change was showed to be insignificant that people would lose faith, note the word “FAITH”, in science. But this event and exposure is way worse for the science community as a whole. Remember: “Truth is the daughter of Time (Francis Bacon)”.

    Several USGS scientists got fired for the same thing when discussing data manipulation for models developed for the Nevada Nuclear Test Site.

    But no outcry and defense for those scientists?

    IF you can't see any problem with this and you don't wonder if there's been some misleading of the public by these scientists, then you definitely are not scientists, you're in denial and would buy any bill of goods sold, and you have no moral principles to stand on.

    On 25 November 2009 at 12:15 PM, I attempted to post comments on RealClimate.org concerning this matter. That website obviously refused to post my comments because they know me, which is another attempt to silence objective parties on this subject and since they were the ones that threatened my job…..

    Now, think about this. Al Gore PUBLICLY states that the Earth’s Mantle temperatures are MILLION of DEGREES. The man doesn't even have the morality, decency, and/or courage to publicly admit he was WRONG. WHY SHOULD these scientists admit they screwed the pooch. They can't, because if they do, the gig is up…….

  3. Even I cannot believe this bull. Give the politicians some time to spin this. Allready their after the wissel blower. A trial for high crimes againt Global Warming. Lets get our heads out of the sand and stop being sheep.
