AFP - OSLO (AFP) - US President Barack Obama on Thursday accepted the Nobel Peace Prize, uncomfortably acknowledging his role as a leader at war while insisting that conflict can be morally justified.
Obama's elevation to a pantheon of winners alongside the likes of Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King before he has even spent a year in office has sparked international debate.
Obama said he received the award with "great humility". "Compared to some of the giants of history who have received this prize -- Schweitzer and King;
"War is sometimes necessary, and war is at some level an expression of human feelings."
"The service and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform has promoted peace and prosperity from
"Our actions matter, and can bend history in the direction of justice," Obama told the glittering event at Oslo City Hall, warning that diplomacy must be backed by "consequences" to beat repression.
"I am responsible for the deployment of thousands of young Americans to battle in a distant land. Some will kill. Some will be killed," he said.
"And so I come here with an acute sense of the cost of armed conflict -- filled with difficult questions about the relationship between war and peace, and our effort to replace one with the other."
In 2007, Obama promised to end the war and that we could "Take That To The Bank!"
Is that why the banks are wrecked?

Obey and several other senior Democrats have proposed a graduated surtax, beginning in 2011, to pay for the war. Their bill would impose a 1% surtax on people earning less than $150,000. The tax hike would be higher for people earning between $150,000 and $250,000 a year, and double that for people with higher incomes. The bill does not give exact figures for what upper surtax rates would be, but says that they would be high enough to cover the previous year's war costs.
It would exempt veterans of combat since

Which is why they are talking about a "War Tax."
FYI the income tax was originally sold to the American people as a war tax to fund WWI. The US Government assured everyone that once the war debt was paid off, the income tax would be rescinded! Needless to say, the income tax was not only never rescinded, but has continued to grow through the decades as the government concocts one phony crisis after the other (the latest being human caused global warming) to scare you out of your money.

The truth about Prince may be orders of magnitude stranger than fiction. For the past six years, he appears to have led an astonishing double life. Publicly, he has served as Blackwater’s C.E.O. and chairman. Privately, and secretly, he has been doing the C.I.A.’s bidding, helping to craft, fund, and execute operations ranging from inserting personnel into “denied areas”—places U.S. intelligence has trouble penetrating—to assembling hit teams targeting al-Qaeda members and their allies. Prince, according to sources with knowledge of his activities, has been working as a C.I.A. asset: in a word, as a spy.

That high rate of turnover in the ANA, driven by extremely high rates of desertion, spells trouble for the strategy that President Barack Obama has reportedly decided on, which is said to include the dispatch of thousands of additional U.S. military trainers in order to rapidly increase the size of the ANA.
That doesn't just spell "trouble" for Obama's strategy: it spells complete, catastrophic, disaster.

“Al Qaeda’s base of operations”, he said, “was in Afghanistan, where they were harbored by the Taliban”, who “refused to turn over Osama bin Laden”.
In fact, the Taliban offered to either try bin Laden in their court system or hand him over to a third country if the U.S. provided evidence of his involvement in the 9/11 attacks. The evidence, however, was not forthcoming, and so the Taliban did indeed refuse on that basis.
The FBI has admitted there is no actual evidence that Osama had anything to do with 9-11, and he himself denied involvement before he died. Osama's official FBI wanted poster does not list 9-11 as one of his crimes.
"Obama repeated the following key lies about 9-11 and Afghanistan during his speech:
: I am convinced that our security is at stake in Afghanistan and Pakistan. This is the epicenter of the violent extremism practiced by al-Qaeda. It is from here that we were attacked on 9/11, and it is from here that new attacks are being plotted as I speak.
: It is important to recall why America and our allies were compelled to fight a war in Afghanistan in the first place. We did not ask for this fight. On
As the US announced deepening of its involvement in Afghanistan by despatching 30,000 more troops, President Barack Obama has quietly authorised an expansion of war against terrorism in Pakistan under which CIA would widen its campaign of strikes against militants by unmanned drones.
The expanded operations by the CIA could include drone strikes in the southern province of Baluchistan, where senior Afghan Taliban leaders are believed to be hiding, New York Times reported today quoting officials.
CIA has submitted its plan to widen its campaign in Pakistan to the White House and has asked for commitment to jack up the agency's budget for operations inside the country.
The US is laying the groundwork for "saving a nuclear-armed Pakistan from itself".
*hyperlinks and video live at source*
The US is at unlawful war with Pakistan, having bombed over 50 sites and killing over 400. the Pakistan government rejects this violation of their nation, but just as the US has no respect for the laws limiting war to a narrow definition of self-defense in Afghanistan, Iraq, rhetoric for more war with Iran, and torture, they have no respect for peace in Pakistan.
Americans receive propaganda in support of US government murder and Crimes Against Peace, such as in this piece from the NY Times that say whatever BS seems most palatable without mentioning US and international law. Other propaganda encourage escalation of this unlawful war. President Obama’s escalation of the unlawful war in Afghanistan will concentrate troops on Pakistan’s border.
The Secret US War in Pakistan
November 23, 2009, The Nation magazine
At a covert forward operating base run by the US Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) in the Pakistani port city of Karachi, members of an elite division of Blackwater are at the center of a secret program in which they plan targeted assassinations of suspected Taliban and Al Qaeda operatives, "snatch and grabs" of high-value targets and other sensitive action inside and outside Pakistan. The Blackwater operatives also assist in gathering intelligence and help direct a secret US military drone bombing campaign that runs parallel to the well-documented CIA predator strikes, according to a well-placed source within the US military intelligence apparatus. The previously unreported program, the military intelligence source said, is distinct from the CIA assassination program. "This is a parallel operation to the CIA," said the source. "They are two separate beasts." Blackwater's presence in Pakistan is "not really visible, and that's why nobody has cracked down on it," said the source. Blackwater's operations in Pakistan, he said, are not done through State Department contracts or publicly identified Defense contracts. "It's Blackwater via JSOC, and it's a classified no-bid [contract] approved on a rolling basis. Some of these strikes are attributed to [the CIA], but in reality it's JSOC. So when you see some of these hits, especially the ones with high civilian casualties, those are almost always JSOC strikes."
Note: Don't miss this key report in it's entirety. Why haven't other major media outlets mentioned the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) drone operations in Pakistan, running parallel to the CIA's?
C.I.A. to Expand Use of Drones in Pakistan
December 4, 2009, New York Times
The White House has authorized an expansion of the C.I.A.’s drone program in Pakistan’s lawless tribal areas. More C.I.A. drone attacks have been conducted under President Obama than under President George W. Bush. The political consensus in support of the drone program ... and its secrecy have obscured just how radical it is. For the first time in history, a civilian intelligence agency is using robots to carry out a military mission, selecting people for killing in a country where the United States is not officially at war. The drone warfare pioneered by the C.I.A. in Pakistan and the Air Force in Iraq and Afghanistan is the leading edge of a wave of push-button combat that will raise legal, moral and political questions around the world, said P. W. Singer, a scholar at the Brookings Institution and author of the book Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century. So far, only the United States and Israel have used the planes for strikes, but that number will grow. It is impossible to judge whether the program violates international law without knowing whether Pakistan permits the incursions, how targets are selected and what is done to minimize civilian casualties.

Release of secret reports delayed
November 29, 2009, Boston Globe
President Obama will maintain a lid of secrecy on millions of pages of military and intelligence documents that were scheduled to be declassified by the end of the year. The missed deadline spells trouble for the White House’s promises to introduce an era of government openness, say advocates, who believe that releasing historical information enforces a key check on government behavior. They cite as an example the abuses by the Central Intelligence Agency during the Cold War, including domestic spying and assassinations of foreign officials, that were publicly outlined in a set of agency documents known as the "family jewels." The White House has given the agencies ... an extension beyond Dec. 31 of an undetermined length - possibly years. It will be the third such extension: Clinton granted one in 2000 and Bush granted one in 2003. The documents, dating from World War II to the early 1980s, cover the gamut of foreign relations, intelligence activities, and military operations. The records in question are held by the Central Intelligence Agency; the National Security Agency; the departments of Justice, State, Defense, and Energy; and other security and intelligence agencies. None of the agencies involved responded to requests for comment. Steven Aftergood, a specialist on government secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists in Washington [said] "If binding deadlines can be extended more or less at will, then any new declassification requirements will be similarly subject to doubt or defiance."
Note: These documents are all more than 25 years old. Why can't the public know what their government is trying to hide from them? For lots more on government secrecy, click here.
A list for those who complain
November 29, 2009, San Francisco Chronicle (San Francisco's leading newspaper)
In spring 2007, as one of many American air travelers who were inconvenienced when our names popped up on a federal "watch list," I never could get straight answers from my government. Was this a mistake, or was I being flagged for some reason? How many Americans were on that watch list? What were the criteria for getting on it? I filed my appeal with the Department of Homeland Security's Travel Redress Inquiry Program (TRIP). The Department of Homeland Security received 75,315 requests for redress under the TRIP program as of Oct. 31. Of those requests, 49,826 have been adjudicated, 7,217 are under review, and 18,272 are awaiting supporting documentation, according to the DHS. "Absolutely, the system didn't work as well as it should have," said Suzanne Trevino, a spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration. Once an airline receives a passenger's control number, along with full name, date of birth and gender, that information is transmitted to the government for clearance. Fewer than 2,500 known and suspected terrorists are actually on the "no fly" list, according to Trevino. And less than 10 percent of them are Americans. [Yet] the FBI's Terrorist Screening Center has acknowledged that its watch list has more than 1 million entries of names and aliases representing about 400,000 people [with] with an average of 1,600 people who presented a "reasonable suspicion" being added every day.

There is today, here in Canada and around the world, what Michael Bakunin once described as a “sense of palpitating urgency” with respect to the growing threat to all democratic nations and institutions by this alien force known as Political Zionism. Due to its inordinate power to infiltrate and subvert representatives of all governments thanks to the enormous wealth and media control which it controls in an absolute fashion once sovereign nations like Canada no longer find themselves in control of their own destiny but rather, find themselves in the unenviable position of being nothing more than front nations for the state of Israel and the Rothschild cartel that created and owns that illegitimate bastard child of the World Zionist Organization.
The federal government is wading into deliberations over the future of journalism as printed newspapers, television stations and other traditional media outlets suffer from Americans' growing reliance on the Internet.
Translation: "If we can't lie to them any more, we can't take their money, labor, and children! What good ARE the people to us if we can't take their money, labor, and children? That @#$%ing internet, with its tubes and blobs and crap is making our job of swindling the people danged near IMPOSSIBLE! We have to shut it down, somehow. Maybe we can tell them that reptilian space aliens are stealing their brain cells over the internet every time they read whatreallyhappened.com!!!"
Tony Blair was told Saddam Hussein may not have been able to use his chemical weapons ten days before war was declared, the Iraq Inquiry was told today.
The second day of public hearings heard the Foreign Office had no evidence Saddam was trying to supply chemical or biological weapons to terrorists.
US and UK officials knew what the truth was here, but lied us into an insane and immoral war anyway.
To the governments of the US and UK: anything that you ever say again to the people you govern will no longer be believed, even if it is the truth.
You absolutely lost whatever slight credibility you might have had when you collectively lied your countries into war.
Of course, it was never your kids getting killed or maimed for life, as has been shown very clearly by the way you have treated your Vets, desperately in need of care when they came home. They were, and continue to be, "expendable" to you.
Intelligence revealing that Saddam Hussein's WMD had been dismantled was received by the Government just days before Tony Blair sent troops into the country, senior officials have admitted.
Ministers were also given repeated warnings that intelligence gathered on Iraq's weapons programmes was unreliable. However, Mr Blair told the Commons that Saddam Hussein did have chemical and biological weapons as he prepared the way for the invasion in March 2003.
When do you get angry at the sea of lies in which you are drowning?
An astounding exchange took place in the European Union Parliament earlier this week when MEP Nigel Farage was reprimanded for daring to expose the fact that the EU is an authoritarian dictatorship ruled by unelected bureaucrats to the detriment of national sovereignty.
The US invaded Afghanistan illegally; the country did not attack the US and their government volunteered to cooperate with extradition of any criminal suspects upon evidence of probable cause. The US refused to provide evidence, did not receive requisite UN Security Council authorization for military action required by US and international law, and illegally invaded in a War of Aggression.
Please pause to verify the fact that the US illegally invaded Afghanistan. When an invasion is illegal, the people fighting US troops are defending their nation against a hostile force. If China invaded the US on such pretext, Americans who did not defend our nation would be called cowards and traitors to the invading horde.
Brzezinski Suggests False Flag Event Could Kick-Start Iran War
Top globalist warns Congress of provocation or terrorist attack inside U.S.

International Terrorism Does Not Exist

Barack Obama said new al-Qaeda attacks were "being plotted as I speak," as he announced the deployment of another 30,000 US troops to Afghanistan.
"I make this decision because I am convinced that our security is at stake in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
That's funny; I am an American and I don't live in either Afghanistan or Pakistan!
As for Al Qaeda plotting against us, I wonder if Obama means these guys!

9/11 Information 60-Page Summary
Summary of 9/11 Timeline Compiled by Paul Thompson
9/11 was one of the most pivotal events in world history. Its impact will be felt for years to come. You owe it to yourself to go beyond the sound bites and the simplified official story. This is an extremely complicated story with numerous players and motives. Not everything makes sense or fits neatly together. It's a story full of espionage, deceit, and lies. But if there are forces out there tricking us, they can only succeed if we, the general public, remain ignorant and passive.

Cox Communications, the third largest cable provider in the United States, is the only company I've found that has made its surveillance price list public. Thus, we are able to learn that the company charges $2,500 for the first 60 days of a pen register/trap and trace, followed by $2,000 for each additional 60 days, while it charges $3,500 for the first 30 days of a wiretap, followed by $2,500 for each additional 30 days. Historical data is much cheaper -- 30 days of a customer's call detail records can be obtained for a mere $40.
According to the Danish Daily Information newspaper, the WHO and pharmaceutical companies are suffering from the profit bug. Or, to put it simply, the chief health care organization in the world has teamed up with the drug makers to create a phantom monster – and to rake in cash by selling a remedy for it.

Mr van Rompuy and EU foreign affairs chief Baroness Cathy Ashton were among the EU bureaucrats who cheered the landmark occasion at a glittering ceremony and banquet in the Portuguese capital.
But in Britain, angry anti-EU critics declared that it signalled the end of our independence after the latest massive surrender of sovereignty to Brussels.

FICO and the Credit Card Financial Prison: How a Three Digit Credit Score Reflects Consumerism and not Financial Independence.
. Approximately 75 percent of all those eligible for credit, those that are 18 years or older, have a credit rating score at any given time. This mysterious three digit score named a FICO Score is the basis for loans, interest rates, and should reflect your ability to manage debt. Yet this is one of those confusing public relation developed ideas that tries to water down the fact that going into debt is somehow good for average Americans. Not only is going into debt good, you now have a credit score that is supposed to be some kind of financial report card.
Credit is a slave chain and your credit score is how brightly you keep it polished for massa!
We have been told that the FDIC not only is $8.2 billion in the hole, but they have secretly borrowed an additional $80 billion from the Treasury. We have also been told that the FDIC is lying about the banks in trouble. The number in eminent danger are not 552, but a massive 2,035. The cost of bailing these banks out would be $800 billion to $1 trillion. That means 2,500 could be closed in 2010. Now get this, the FDIC is going to be collapsed before the end of 2010, which means no more deposit insurance. This follows the
This will strip small and medium-sized banks and force them into shutting down or being absorbed. This means you have to get your money out of banks, especially CDs. We repeat get your cash values out of life insurance policies and annuities. They are invested 80% in stocks and 20% in bonds. Keep only enough money in banks for three months of operating expenses, six months for businesses.
Major and semi-major banks are being told to obtain secure storage for new currency-dollars. They expect official devaluation by the end of the year.

Gold struck a record price above 1,217 dollars on Wednesday as the US currency weakened, cementing the precious metal's surge over the past year as nervy investors seek safe-haven investments.
Gold has smashed record after record over recent days and weeks on the back of inflationary fears and increasing moves by central banks to diversify assets away from the dollar, which has weakened against the European single currency.
Is Dubai's delay in paying its Dubai World debt the reason Treasury Bills have been paying a negative yield over the last week or so?
The government late Wednesday said it would restructure Dubai World and announced a six-month "standstill" on repayments of the state-run wide-ranging conglomerate's debt.
That will have an effect on the dollar.
The Times is full of it. The "fears were never allayed" because the system was never fixed. Instead of nationalizing underwater banks and forcefully reducing leverage in the financial sector, the Fed provided a blanket guarantee on all types of toxic garbage. That helped calm the markets, but the deeper problems still remain. There's been no new regulations and Wall Street's gigantic looting operation has continued without pause--only now--every-time a deadbeat developer misses a payment in some far-corner corner of the earth, all hell breaks loose.
Suddenly, the banks aren't looking like a really secure place to store your money, if the FDIC is broke!
California is worst off, but hardly alone. Others include Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island and Wisconsin.
The 10 worst off states are examined, but close behind are Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, New York and Hawaii. Only two, Montana and North Dakota, are fiscally solvent and expect to meet their 2010 budgets, the latter because it alone has what the others don't - its own bank able to create credit for state businesses and residents at an affordable cost. As a result, with the lowest unemployment rate in the country at 4%, it's created jobs at a time they're vanishing in the other 49 and the District of Columbia.
North Dakota has really played it smart in terms of having its own state bank for the creation of credit; this has obviously made a tremendous difference for its economy.
U.S. bankruptcy filings rose 33 percent in the third quarter to the highest number since 2005, government data show, as rising unemployment and tight credit made it more difficult for consumers and businesses to stay current on their debts.
"With unemployment surpassing 10 percent and credit to businesses remaining tight, consumers and businesses are increasingly turning to the financial relief of bankruptcy," said Samuel Gerdano, executive director of the nonpartisan American Bankruptcy Institute, in a statement.
Something to keep in mind: We The People include people who hunt for food, or have served in combat.
Bankers, well, they play with paper.
The Bankers may impress themselves with the holes they can punch in paper targets under controlled circumstances of lighting and comfort, but when shooting at a target that is shooting back at them, they will quickly realize that gun fights in the real world are not at all like the movies and TV shows (and gun club brochures) make them out to be.
I will predict that when the bankers have 6 shots in that revolver, and 1200 angry foreclosed Americans kicking down their doors, not screwing us all in the first place will seem like the right course of action to have followed.
Look at the history of the French Revolution. That Guillotine blade did not fall on just the necks of the King and Queen and the nobility.
The Corporatocracy: A New Economic System for the Connected Banking Sector and Political Elites. Providing the new Serfdom Massive Debt Servitude.
Some try to argue the failures of capitalism but our current system is more of a corporatocracy. A system designed for the few by the few. Even Adam Smith argued that society would need to be vigilant against monopolies and charlatans. Yet somehow we arrive at our current time with gigantic investment banks pulling on political strings and operating under Darwinian economics where the overall health of the economy is only an afterthought. We are a very long way from the capitalism Adam Smith advocated.
The Israeli Central Court heard and rejected Wednesday the petition of the Al-Kurd family seeking the eviction of Israeli settlers from their home.
The home, vacant following a court order demanding the Al-Kurds leave the building following a demolition order from Israel’s Jerusalem municipality, was taken over by Israeli settlers on TuesdayWednesday, and denied the plea treplied on Wednesday to the petition of Al-Kurd family from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood where they called the Israeli court to issue an order to evacuate the settlers from their own home that was dominated by the settlers on Tuesday.
So, the court orders the Palestinians out of their home because it is to be demolished, then suddenly Israeli settlers are allowed to live there?
This is the Israeli system of "Justice."
The Jerusalem center for social and economic rights (JCSER) warned of Israeli intentions to deport more than 20,000 Palestinians from the West Bank who married from Jerusalemite women at the pretext that their residence in the holy city is illegal.
Ziyad Al-Hammouri, the director of the center, explained in this regard that the Israeli interior ministry published last year in a local newspaper a notice ordering what it called “the inhabitants of Judea and Samaria living in Jerusalem illegally”, in reference to the West Bank citizens who live with Jerusalemite wives in the holy city, to apply for temporary residence permits.
"Ooooh, you Europeans are SUCH anti-Semites! We will have the Americans come kill you now!"
Last year set an all-time record for the number of Arab residents of East Jerusalem who were stripped of residency rights by the Interior Ministry. Altogether, the ministry revoked the residency of 4,577 East Jerusalemites in 2008 - 21 times the average of the previous 40 years.
Israel boastfully characterizes itself as "... the only democracy in the Middle East."
But you've got to ask yourself; does a true "democracy" do this to some of its citizens because they're the "wrong" ethnicity or religion?!?
I don't think so!
Israel, which has recently been condemned by the UN Human Rights Council because of their war crimes (1), asks Germany to build them two new warships – for free. (2)
After the German chancellor Merkel argued in front of the US congress that “whoever threatens Israel, threatens us” (3), it seems as if Israel will get what it wants. This wouldn’t, however, be anything new: At the turn of the millennium, Germany financed three submarines spending 560 Million Euros on them. In 2012, there will two additional submarines, this time German tax payers will have to pay 333 Million Euros.
It should be pointed out that the German taxpayers who foot this bill had not even been born yet during WW2.
Why are the German people being punished for something they did not do and had no control over?

C’est un problème non pas isolé, mais récurant. Les données de bases sur lesquelles sont basées les prédictions catastrophiques du GIEC ne sont pas disponibles, falsifiée ou carrément détruites. On parle de corruption de la science au service d’un agenda politique de gouvernance globale transcendant les souverainetés nationales et l’imposition d’une première taxe globale allant dans les poches d’une nouvelle entité mondiale non démocratique.
New Zealand’s NIWA accused of CRU-style temperature faking.
The New Zealand Government’s chief climate advisory unit NIWA is under fire for allegedly massaging raw climate data to show a global warming trend that wasn’t there.
The scandal breaks as fears grow worldwide that corruption of climate science is not confined to just Britain’s CRU climate research centre.
It is NOT just a problem limited to CRU!
America is being asked to spend trillions on a theory, some of whose foundational data has been destroyed, allegedly for a lack of storage space. If the data cannot be reviewed, it cannot be trusted, scientifically.
L’agenda du réchauffement climatique est lié avec celui du contrôle de la population, ou même de la réduction de celle-ci, un but avoué dans des documents du Club de Rome et de l’Agenda 21 et de l’ONU, en plus de la bouche même de plusieurs importants supporteurs comme la Fondation Bill et Melinda Gates, Ted Turner, George Soros, Rockefeller. Un autre but avoué dans leurs propres documents, l’équation à établir était d’établir une crise blâmée sur le dos des humains qui se retrouvent à être la cause du problème, même si ce n’est pas vrai, et ainsi justifier de nouvelles politiques eugénistes comme le contrôle de naissance dans les pays du tiers monde et réduction de la population tels que décrit dans le Mémorandum 200 de 1974, un document gouvernemental officiel rédigé par Henry Kissinger.
De plus, il ne faut pas perdre de vue que l’industrie de l’énergie nucléaire revient à la mode après une pause de plus de deux décennies. Club sélect de producteurs d’uranium et de centrales nucléaires, avec des ressources financières importantes. Certains politiciens sans scrupules et leader du dit mouvement contre le réchauffement climatique comme Al Gore veut taxer notre CO2 produit par nos voitures à essence – qui de toute façon auraient dû disparaîtrent du marché il y a 25 ans, si les pétrolières et l’industrie automobile n’avaient pas eux-mêmes tué leurs propres voitures électriques – et vantent les mérites de l’énergie nucléaire. Ils la disent une énergie propre et bonne pour lutter contre le réchauffement climatique. Mais plusieurs vont sans dire qu’ils ont des liens avec l’industrie nucléaire, comme Al Gore. Et ce serait mentir que de dire que le nucléaire ne pollue pas et est sans danger.
À ce sujet, nous allons d’ailleurs essayer de vous présenter une entrevue avec l’auteur Julie Lemieux qui vient de publier un livre intitulé « Avez-vous peur du nucléaire, vous devriez peut-être » qui traite non pas d’Al Gore, mais bien de cette industrie de l’énergie nucléaire et de sa face méconnue.
CO2 emissions are heralded as the single and most important threat to the future of humanity.
The focus of the Summit is on strictly environmental issues. No mention of the word "war" --i.e. the US-NATO led war and its devastating environmental consequences.
No mention of the pre-emptive use of nuclear weapons as an instrument of "peacemaking".
No mention, as part of an environmental debate, of the radioactive fallout resulting from the Pentagon's humanitarian nuclear bombs. Tactical nuclear weapons, according to scientific opinion commissioned by the Pentagon are "safe for the surrounding civilian population".
No mention of "weather warfare" or "environmental modification techniques" (ENMOD) and climatic warfare.
Climategate, the biggest fraud in science history, has more twists and turns than a Christie novel. Check out this latest stunning post which I found over at Watts Up With That -- the leading blog on the true science of climate change. It's a very thorough and technical analysis, which proves that the release of documents came from an inside whistleblower, instead of from some Russian hacker. His identity has not been released. This is important, because the climate changers have been using the hacking as an illegal act in an effort to mitigate the impact of the released messages that show Global Warming is a scam.
The gory photos of male polar bears devouring cubs, dragging shredded carcasses around and creating a bloody mess on the white snow of Canada's North have caused a stir on the Internet and in reports that link the activity to climate change.
But cannibalism among the species is a natural occurrence, says one expert, disputing what is just the latest story to put the polar bear in the debate over man-made global warming.
"Both Inuit and scientific knowledge show that cannibalism in polar bears happens, and it probably always has," said Steve Pinksen, director of policy and legislation for Nunavut's Department of Environment.

Lundi 7 décembre 2009 s'ouvrira la conférence de Copenhague. Organisée par la Convention-cadre des Nations Unies sur les changements climatiques (CCNUCC), elle regroupera les 193 nations membres, plus d'une soixantaine de chefs d'Etat et nombre d'institutions internationales et d'organisations non gouvernementales qui tenteront de trouver un accord et de nouveaux objectifs pour poursuivre les efforts (modestes) engagés en 1997 lors de la création du Protocole de Kyoto. Ratifié par 175 pays (tous sauf les Etats-Unis...), il viendra à expiration en 2012. Les participants auront deux semaines pour s'entendre sur un nouveau chiffre de réduction pour les émissions de gaz à effet de serre, et surtout sur la répartition des efforts entre les pays riches et les pays pauvres.
De nombreux chefs d'état seront de la fête, y compris le président des Etats-Unis, M. Barack Obama, qui, à la surprise générale, a même annoncé fin novembre des objectifs chiffrés : une réduction de 17 % des émissions de gaz à effet de serre d'ici 2020 par rapport au niveau de 2005. Cette annonce a déjà été jugée insuffisante par les mouvements écologistes qui ont demandé aux Etats-Unis de faire plus d'efforts. En réponse, Washington s'est dit prêt à s'engager sur 30 % de réduction en 2025 et 42 % en 2030. Quasi simultanément, Pékin dévoilait ses propres chiffres : une réduction de 40 % à 45 % de son « intensité carbonique » (émissions polluantes par unité de PIB) d'ici 2020 par rapport à 2005, soit un objectif beaucoup plus ambitieux. Par ailleurs, l'Union européenne s'est engagée sur une réduction de 20 % et s'est dit prête à aller jusqu'à 30 %.
Les scientifiques, par la voix du Groupe d'experts intergouvernemental sur l'évolution du climat (GIEC), estiment qu'une réduction de 25 à 40 % d'ici 2020 par rapport au niveau de 2005 est indispensable pour contenir l'élévation de la température à moins de 2 degrés, chiffre au delà duquel les dérèglements climatiques vont s'aggraver de manière irréversible.
Les responsables onusiens restaient pessimistes jusqu'à l'annonce surprise des objectifs chiffrés des deux plus gros pollueurs de la planète.
Comme pour mieux préparer le public à ce sommet qui promet d'être le plus médiatisé de la planète, nombreuses ont été les sorties de livres et de films promettant le chaos - sinon l'apocalypse -, confirmant ou infirmant la réalité du réchauffement climatique. Puis, le spectaculaire piratage du serveur du prestigieux centre de recherche sur le climat de l'université britannique d'East Anglia, avec la mise à disposition du public d'une sélection de courriels qui prétendaient montrer que les scientifiques manipulaient les données. Tout cela aura fait long feu : quelles que soient les tentatives de désinformation des climato-sceptiques, il est indéniable aujourd'hui que les activités humaines contribuent pour une part non négligeable à l'augmentation de CO2 dans l'atmosphère, et de ce fait, entraînent un réchauffement global de la planète.
Note de l'auteur:
Il y a bien des trous et des inexactitudes sans les connaissances qui nous sont transmit à l'école et à travers les médias corporatifs et étatiques.
C'est la révolution de la façon dont l'information circule dans nos sociétés. Ce n'est plus "top-down", du sommet vers le bas, mais librement, dans tous les sens.
Nous avons accès à l'information comme jamais avant. Avec ses pièges évidents de surinformation et d'informations de piètre qualité. Nous sommes en train de développer un nouveau sens, un "firewall" mental qui sait mieux filtrer la désinformation et la propagande.
Et encore une fois, le temps est en train de montrer que nous avions raison de nous méfier de cette affaire du réchauffement climatique. Les gens vont vous traiter de climato-sceptiques, de théoriciens du complot, vont insister sur les sources fiables, mais ne vont jamais s'interroger sur les sources mêmes et documents fondateurs du mouvement environnementaliste et de la thèse du réchauffement climatique anthropologique alors que les documents existent et sont disponibles à tous, comme l'Agenda 21 du Club de Rome, sur lequel se base les politiques de l'ONU en matière environnementale.
Il faut aussi voir les noms des rédacteurs de ces documents. Vous allez avoir des surprises!
Mais que voulez-vous, les gens sont paresseux intellectuellement et n'ont pas l'honnêteté de pousser leur recherche un peu plus loin que leur conditionnement leur permet. Ils croient ainsi "sauver la planète" et se donnent un sentiment de valorisation personnelle leur donnant l'impression de faire de quoi pour sauver l'environnement, sans savoir si ce qu'il font est vraiment pertinent et basé sur des FAITS réels et de la science FIABLE.
Comment vérifier ces prédictions du GIEC et cette science du climat, qui va avoir un impact incroyable sur nos vies et économies avec ces taxes sur le CO2, si les données de base ayant servit à ces calculs ont été falsifiés ou simplement détruit par les scientifiques de l'Université de East Anglia?
Moi, je suis seulement un gars comme vous autres. Je suis juste scié de voir qu'un gars comme moi, avec pas de budget ni d'équipe de journalistes professionnels, peut arriver à trouver ces informations qui méritent d'être étudiées publiquement avant de prendre des décisions sérieuses, et de voir que les médias en général ne sont même pas capables de nous apporter et d'analyser objectivement.
Ces informations soulèvent des questions totalement légitimes et bien-fondées. Pourquoi faut-il qu'à chaque fois que la population commencent à se poser de bonnes questions qui mériteraient vraiment qu'on prenne le temps de répondre, on vous traite de paranos, de conspirationniste et de nono qui trouve ses information sur le Net?
Quelle condescendance incroyable. Je suis un peu tanné qu'on nous prenne pour des caves qui ne savent plus réagir lorsque que quelque chose d'important se passe. Nous sommes beaucoup plus qu'on le pense à penser ainsi, et à être informés.
Les ingénieurs sociaux savent utiliser notre coeur et notre humanité contre nous. tout le monde veut aider à protéger l'environnement, tout le monde aime la nature, les animaux et un monde propre, non pollué. C'est évident. Alors en créant une fausse crise environnementale (alors qu'il en existe des encore plus criantes, urgentes et réelles, directement causées par l'homme, avec 0% de doute sur ça), tout le monde se sent concerné, et ça devient un problème global qui appelle une solution globale, LEUR solution globale.
Créer une instance mondiale avec une force policière pour faire appliquer ses lois et taxes qui va transcender nos souverainetés nationales, mais qui sera gérée par des gens non-élus et sur lesquels nous aurions AUCUN pouvoir.
La grande question est QUI sera à la tête de cette toute puissante organisation mondiale? Probablement ceux qui financent, ceux qui ont écrit l'Agenda 21 et qui a fondé les principes de la thèse du réchauffement climatique causé par l'homme, des Sommets de la Terre, de ceux qui veulent imposer une taxe sur le CO2 et qui vont profiter de la Bourse du carbone, un autre hedge fund, pyramide de Ponzi.
Pourquoi les gens ne sont pas capables de voir ces outrageant conflits d'intérêts et la source même de toute cette histoire? Parce qu'on joue avec leur sentiment de faire du bien à la planète, de la SAUVER. Les gens oublie que la route vers l'enfer est souvent faite de bonnes intentions.
E-mails hacked from a climate research institute suggest climate change does not have a human cause, according to Saudi Arabia's lead climate negotiator.
Mohammad Al-Sabban told BBC News that the issue will have a "huge impact" on next week's UN climate summit, with countries unwilling to cut emissions.
Scientists say the e-mails from the University of East Anglia do not alter the picture of man-made warming.
India will not accept a legally binding emission cut nor a peak year of carbon emissions at the global climate talks in Copenhagen, Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh said on Thursday.
"There is no question of India accepting a legally binding emission reduction cut," he told parliament, laying out India's negotiating position ahead of the December talks.
The mainstream media has its head in the sand again while one of the largest conspiracies the world has ever seen is exposed via Internet media. As most readers have heard by now, years of emails and programming code have been uncovered from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, which is run by the scientists whose research is the basis for the world's belief in man-caused global warming. Their science is also the backbone for a massive global tax proposal on industry which the Obama administration is pushing in Congress right now.
It stands to reason that the Mainstream media is no longer the mainstream.
The blogs are!
The events of the last few of weeks, involving stolen professional correspondence between a small number of leading climate scientists—so-called climategate—demonstrate my point. Both the theft itself and the alleged contents of some of the stolen emails reveal the strong polarization and intense antagonism now found in some areas of climate science.
Climate scientists, knowingly or not, become proxies for political battles. The consequence is that science, as a form of open and critical enquiry, deteriorates while the more appropriate forums for ideological battles are ignored.
Climategate is the scandal resulting from the public exposure of thousands of e-mails from researchers connected to University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU). The e-mails allegedly reveal that what underlies the global warming “consensus” is a pattern of data massaging, avoidance of sharing data to prevent proper peer review, and behind-the-scenes efforts to silence critics.
Not exactly the scientific method we were taught in high school.
House Republicans pointed to controversial e-mails leaked from climate scientists and said it was evidence of corruption. Top administration scientists looking at the same thing found no such sign, saying it doesn't change the fact that the world is warming.
So, the official response is that even though the data claiming to show the world is warming is an admitted fake (what part of "hide the decline" do you not comprehend, idiot?), the earth is getting warmer because they have data claiming the world is getting warmer, which is an admitted fake (what part of "hide the decline" do you not comprehend, idiot?).
These are the same people who assured us that Saddam had "nookular" weapons.
In a pathetic effort to make the climategate scandal go away, the crooks involved in manipulating data to “hide the decline” in global warming are recasting themselves as the victims of the whole affair, attempting to shift the blame to criminal hackers who stole data, when all the evidence suggests the CRU emails were leaked from the inside.
Of course, the only real criminals are those who were caught fraudulently massaging climate data in order to comply with the United Nations’ agenda for a global carbon tax, a world government and complete takeover of the global economy.
"Forget the facts; you gotta feel SORRY for us!!!!"
(These climate hoaxers have been hanging out with the Israelis way too long!)
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."
Outrage surrounding the climategate scandal is increasing as desperate apologists for the crooks caught manipulating data to “hide the decline” in global warming attempt to distance themselves from the perpetrators, burning a few scientists to save the larger carbon tax gravy train in a cynical damage limitation exercise.
The potential for the climategate scandal to derail the gargantuan agenda to exploit fraudulent fearmongering about global warming in order to ram through a new carbon tax is growing after the ringleader of the scam, Phil Jones, the head of the Climactic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, temporarily stepped down pending an investigation.
Most Americans (52%) believe that there continues to be significant disagreement within the scientific community over global warming.
While many advocates of aggressive policy responses to global warming say a consensus exists, the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 25% of adults think most scientists agree on the topic.
A U.S. scholar is threatening to sue NASA to compel the release of climate change data, saying he suspects the agency has manipulated research like a university research center in Britain is accused of doing.
A senior CSIRO environmental economist has resigned after saying his criticism of the emissions trading scheme (ETS) was censored.
Dr Clive Spash has resigned after three years with CSIRO. For most of this year, he had been in a dispute over the publication of his paper which criticised carbon trading schemes.
The UK-based Optimum Population Trust says fast-rising population levels lead to growing emissions.
The website is urging wealthy people to offset their own CO2 emissions by funding contraception programmes.
It says taking such action is better value than spending money on wind turbines, solar power or hybrid cars.
So ... if I buy a box of condoms for some third world family, I can drive my SUV without feeling guilty about it?
A former top climate scientist who had become one of the scientific world’s most cited authorities on the human effect on Earth’s atmosphere was sentenced to probation Tuesday after pleading guilty to steering lucrative no-bid contracts to his wife’s company.”
Some of the climate-change profiteers are relatively unknown corporations; others are household names with only their behind-the-scenes role in the climate-change industry unknown. Over the next few weeks, in an extended newspaper series, you will become familiar with some of the profiteers, and with their machinations. This series begins with Enron, a pioneer in the climate-change industry.
Professor in climate change scandal helps police with enquiries while researchers call for him to be banned
The scientist at the heart of the climate change email scandal was today interviewed by police about the scandal.
Two plain clothes officers arrived in an unmarked car in the afternoon and took Professor Phil Jones to Norfolk Police's headquarters in nearby Wymondham to give a statement.
Sources said the interview concerned the theft of emails from the university and alleged death threats since the contents of the emails were released, adding he was being treated as a 'victim of crime' rather than a suspect in any criminal investigation.
Detective Superintendent Julian Gregory added: 'He is one of the people assisting police with their enquiries.'
James Hansen the world’s leading Climate Change proponent who convinced governments of global warming now says “it would be better for the planet and for future generations if next week’s Copenhagen climate change summit ended in collapse.”
Environmentalism should be regarded on the same level with religion "as the only compelling, value-based narrative available to humanity," according to a paper written two years ago to influence the future strategy of the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP), the world's would-be environmental watchdog.
The reverberations have extended beyond the campus of the University of East Anglia and the CRU. E-mail messages from Michael Mann, a professor in the meteorology department at Penn State University who has argued that mankind is threatening "entire ecosystems with extinction in the decades ahead if we continue to burn fossil fuels at current rates," appeared in the leaked files. Now Penn State has opened an investigation into Mann's work, and the U.K.'s weather agency has been forced on the defensive as well.
I will admit up front that I have always been a skeptic when it comes to anthropogenic climate change (what used to be called Global Warming before cold spells undercut that mantra). My pre-ClimateGate reasons for this skepticism include things like the pre-industrial Medieval Warm Period, the outright silliness of trying to consider the Little Ice Age to be a baseline for normal temperatures, the discredited Hockey Stick graph, James Hanson’s deceitful attempt to use September temperatures to make October look inordinately hot, it goes on and on. Additionally, part of my reluctance to get on board is the stink of a social/political agenda on the part of the high priests of the church of man-made climate change.
Please continue to forward this around the world.
We are forcing this issue into the public mind, despite the best efforts of the global warming cultists and ABCNNBBCBS.
Phil Jones writes to University of Hull to try to stop sceptic Sonia Boehmer Christiansen using her Hull affiliation. Graham F Haughton of Hull University says its easier to push greenery there now SB-C has retired.(1256765544)
Michael Mann discusses how to destroy a journal that has published sceptic papers.(1047388489)
As frigid Copenhagen prepares for the latest five-star global-warming conference, newly released e-mails by crisis-promoting scientists have exposed a cesspool of intimidation, data alteration and fraud.
Their views, data and models are central to reports by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the Kyoto Protocol and proposed successors, and also U.S. cap-and-trade bills.
As the genuine environmentalists start to realize just how badly they have been used, keep in mind the lessons of history.
Everyone who was ever double-crossed, betrayed, used, or lied to had it done to them by someone they trusted!
The London Guardian and other left leaning mainstream media outlets have pounced on Exxon’s small donations to such groups, reporting it as detestable corporate funding of “climate change denial”.
However, when it comes to the funding of AGW proponents, the figures are infinitely greater, many of the sources take their money directly from our pockets, and yet the Guardian and its ilk, conveniently, remain completely silent.
The leaked emails from the Hadley centre reveal that (now former) CRU chief Phil Jones has received 55 endowments since 1990 from agencies ranging from the U.S. Department of Energy to NATO, worth a total of £13,718,547, or approximately $22.6 million.
$19 million alone came between the years 2000 and 2006.
From National Geographic:
“Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of the St. Petersburg’s Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia, says the Mars data is evidence that the current global warming on Earth is being caused by changes in the sun.“
From MIT on Pluto
“the average surface temperature of the nitrogen ice on Pluto has increased slightly less than 2 degrees Celsius over the past 14 years.”
Since Pluto is moving further away from the Sun and continuing to warm despite that fact, it indicates that something doesn’t fit into “Solar Constant” dismissal theories.
If the other planets are getting warmer and colder in sync with the Earth, then it is the sun and not my SUV, that is the prime determinant in global temperatures.
The recent release of the Climategate papers from the Climate Research Unit isn’t the first time those pushing to global warming scam have been caught suppressing information.
Miklós Zágoni was Hungary’s most outspoken supporter of the Kyoto Protocols until he came across the work of Ferenc Miskolczi, a NASA whistle blower who discovered a major flaw in the equations that have been used to predict catastrophic global warming. http://www.blog.speculist.com/archives/001668.html
Miskolczi eventually resigned from NASA because the agency chose to suppress the study that discussed the error. Miskolczi has revised the equations and they no longer indicate the type of catastrophe suggested by NASA bureaucrats.
from the conclusion:
It’s not about links. This won’t get many links.
It’s not about getting on Digg – anything that challenges Anthropogenic Global Warming automatically gets buried.
and it’s not about popularity: most of you don’t like the “anti anthropogenic global warming” stance.
It’s about the science. The scientific method has helped me to become successful in SEO, Business and many other aspects of my life - and it can help you too. Let’s make sure that the process is not destroyed to appease what’s popular.
for other good links on the topic of solar-system-wide climate changes, see:
In a study sure to ruffle the feathers of the Global Warming cabal, Professor Richard Lindzen of MIT has published a paper which proves that IPCC models are overstating by 6 times, the relevance of CO2 in Earth’s Atmosphere. Dr. Lindzen has found that heat is radiated out in to space at a far higher rate than any modeling system to date can account for.
An agency of the New Zealand government has been cooking the books to create a warming trend where none exists, according to a joint research project by global warming skeptics at the Climate Conversation Group and the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition. The chief cook? Dr. Jim Salinger, considered one of the country's top scientists, who began the graph in the 1980s when he was at the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in the UK. CRU, of course, has become ground zero of Climategate at Dr. Salinger has maintained close relations with CRU since, as seen in the Climategate emails.
What do the uncooked books show? Rather than warming over the last hundred years, New Zealand's temperature has been steady.
ABC news reports that five frontbenchers from Australia’s opposition Liberal party have resigned their portfolios rather than follow their leader Malcolm Turnbull in voting with Kevin Rudd’s Government on a new Emissions Trading Scheme.
The Liberal Party is in turmoil with the resignations of five frontbenchers from their portfolios this afternoon in protest against the emissions trading scheme.
Tony Abbott, Sophie Mirabella, Tony Smith and Senators Nick Minchin and Eric Abetz have all quit their portfolios because they cannot vote for the legislation.
Senate whip Stephen Parry has also relinquished his position.
I’ve just had a great, very sympathetic interview about Climategate on LBC radio (London’s main commercial news and talk station) with Petrie Hosken. She told me she has been simply inundated with callers, all of them utterly unconvinced that human influence has made any significant on so-called “Global Warming”. She was desperate to get a few balancing calls from people who do believe in AGW but just couldn’t find any.
Can you imagine this happening a year ago? Or even a month ago? Until Climategate, we “Sceptics” were considered freaks – almost as bad as Holocaust deniers – beyond the pale of reasonable balanced discussion. Suddenly we’re the norm. Climategate has finally given us the chance to express openly what many of us secretly felt all along:
The head of the U.N.'s panel of climate experts rejected accusations of bias on Thursday, saying a "Climategate" row in no way undermined evidence that humans are to blame for global warming.
"I mean, just because you discover the carpenters are sloppy and used substandard materials is no reason to doubt the soundness and safety of your home, right?"
Climategate: MSM Writers Try to Ignore Scandal in Global Warming Stories But Readers Bring Them Back to Reality
An hilariously bizarre situation is happening in the wake of the growing Climategate scandal. Many of the mainstream media stories about global warming are simply pretending it doesn't exist. Perhaps they feel that by ignoring Climategate entirely that it will just go away. Unfortunately for them, the readers of these global warming stories keep bringing up the inconvenient truth of Climategate by mentioning the scandal in the comments section over and over and over again.
Two days ago, after the world found out about the CRU emails, the local paper the Honolulu Star Bulletin, ran a story "Mauna Loa Observatory's carbon dioxide readings near worst-case scenario " It was also the cover story for the paper edition, with full-color photo, front page, above the fold. This obvious attempt to re-assert the Global Warming Agenda inspired me to write them the following letter to the Editor.
I told you; the global warming cultists are going to ramp up the hysterical fear-mongering between now and Copenhagen.
Here is the email I sent to Star Bulletin
Shame on Star-Bulletin for this obvious pandering to private interests intent on making millions of dollars “Enronizing” the Cap and Credit Carbon tax system. And I do not choose that word casually. Enron’s Ken Lay aided Al Gore in setting up the structure for Al’s company (which has invested $150 million in “selling” global warming), planning to do to the world with Carbon Dioxide what Enron did to California with electricity!
Setting aside the breaking story of the whistleblower inside the Hadley Climate Research Unit that leaked emails and documents confirming that the global warming “industry” deliberately falsified data to create a climate of fear and panic for political purposes, I would like to remind you that the measurement station at the Mauna Loa Observatory sits on top of a volcano which has been in active eruption for close to 20 years. Carbon Dioxide is emitted by volcanoes. Indeed it is the second most abundant gas in volcanic venting after water vapor (which is also a greenhouse gas).
I am insulted that you treat your readers as uneducated simpletons with little grounding in the sciences. No wonder the corporate media is in decline.
Needless to say, it has not been published.
Hmm. All sounds very scientific. By the way, the CRU may be in East Anglia but it gets money from the U.S. Department of Energy and the EPA — which means you, Mr. and Mrs. America. Which makes it a domestic news story. Sadly, many U.S. newspapers evidently lack the resources to cover the story, but a reader copies me a letter he sent to the New York Times offering to help out:
Yesterday, on behalf of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, I filed three Notices of Intent to File Suit against NASA and its Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), for those bodies’ refusal – for nearly three years – to provide documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act.
In an incredible reversal of fact and fiction the Dutch Environmental minister Jacqueline Cramer claimed today that the hackers who took the data from University of East-Anglia’s server “manipulated the numbers”, supposedly to sabotage the upcoming Copenhagen conference.
Although nobody disputes the authenticity of the e-mails, Cramer apparently does. In addition to her bizarre statement that the unknowns, after hacking into the University’s computer, somehow “changed the numbers” she even goes so far as to scream out loud: “this is just criminal. It’s unacceptable.”
Scientists say shrinking Arctic sea ice may be forcing some polar bears into cannibalizing young cubs.
THE scientific consensus that mankind has caused climate change was rocked yesterday as a leading academic called it a “load of hot air underpinned by fraud”.
Professor Ian Plimer condemned the climate change lobby as “climate comrades” keeping the “gravy train” going.
In a controversial talk just days before the start of a climate summit attended by world leaders in Copenhagen, Prof Plimer said Governments were treating the public like “fools” and using climate change to increase taxes.
He said carbon dioxide has had no impact on temperature and that recent warming was part of the natural cycle of climate stretching over billions of years.
YEP, THE CORPORATE MEDIA HAVE BEEN GIVEN THEIR ORDERS TO SCARE YOU BACK INTO OBEDIENCE TO THE GLOBAL WARMING CULT!
Not since Henry Kissinger fled a team of LaRouche organizers, in the back of a delivery truck in New York City's Central Park in the early 1980s, has an obese fascist moved so fast to escape an angry crowd, as Al Gore did today in Chicago. Appearing at a bookstore in the downtown Loop, Gore was confronted by a team of demonstrators from a grass roots group called "We Are Change," as he was signing his latest fascist screed on the global warming swindle. Gore bolted from the bookstore, raced down an alley, jumped into a waiting car, and tried to speed off, with protesters chasing after him and banging on the car.
Obama Science Czar John Holdren is directly involved in CRU’s unfolding Climategate scandal. In fact, according to files released by a CEU hacker or whistleblower, Holdren is involved in what Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist Canadian climatologist Dr. Tim Ball terms “a truculent and nasty manner that provides a brief demonstration of his lack of understanding, commitment on faith and willingness to ridicule and bully people”.
“Holdren has a long history of seeking total government control. He was involved in the Club of Rome providing Paul Ehrlich with the scientific data in his bet with Julian Simon. Ehrlich lost the bet. Holdren’s behavior in this sorry episode with Soon and Baliunas is too true to form and shows the leopard never changes his spots,” Ball concludes.
Meanwhile, even with an AWOL mainstream media, the Climategate snakes continue to slither out from under the rocks.
President Barack Obama is about to stride off to Copenhagen, where he'll sign away any hope that America can return to sustained prosperity.
The president promises next month's international palaver on climate change will be marked by aggressive action to combat global warming and a firm commitment by the United States to shoulder its share of the responsibility.
Translation: Obama will pledge the United States to curbing its appetite for energy, and thus its economic growth, will make reducing emissions a higher priority than creating new jobs and will agree to transfer $1.6 trillion of our wealth to China, India and the other booming developing economies.
And it may be based on doctored numbers.
What’s the hubbub? It all comes down to men behaving badly. Emails and files related to top scientists that support man made global warming theory were released in the hacked files. These scientists have authored/co-authored many of the studies relied on by the UN IPCC, and world governments. The studies have been used to pronounce global warming an immediate, and therefore taxable, threat.
Here are some of the highlights of the documents released.
SciAm tries to rebuild the case for Copenhagen with a lot of fancy footwork.
I warned you that the cult would pull out all the stops to scare you back into obedience.
It only took CNN six days to notice the growing international scandal known as Climategate, and when it finally reported on the matter, it predictably did so by downplaying the significance.
Maybe even more embarrassing for the supposedly "Most Trusted Name In News," Russia Today did a far better job of detailing what happened at Britain's Climate Research Unit and how the global warming debate is impacted by it.
In climate research and modelling, we should recognise that we are dealing with a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore that the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.
From the IPCC's own website; read it and weep!
The following 8-minute interview explains and shows that independent university measurements were accurate and “official” data was fraudulent (and here). This data was contrived to support a global carbon tax, a new exotic derivative for skimming money from working families. People within the US government is complicit in this criminal fraud; members of Congress are initiating investigation.
For analysis from Ian Plimer, best-selling author countering alleged global warming data, go here. Below is House Committee testimony of Al Gore denying any data that condtradicted the basis for a global carbon tax that would cost Americans hundreds of billions of dollars in new taxes.
The alleged villains this time are the climate scientists at the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NiWA) – New Zealand’s answer to Britain’s Climate Research Unit. And to judge by this news alert by the Climate Science Coalition of NZ, both institutions share a similarly laissez-faire attitude to scientific accuracy.
Skimming through the often spaghetti-like code, the number of programs which subject the data to a mixed-bag of transformative and filtering routines is simply staggering. Granted, many of these "alterations" run from benign smoothing algorithms (e.g., omitting rogue outliers) to moderate infilling mechanisms (e.g., estimating missing station data from that of those closely surrounding). But many others fall into the precarious range between highly questionable (removing MXD data which demonstrate poor correlations with local temperature) to downright fraudulent (replacing MXD data entirely with measured data to reverse a disorderly trend-line).
CRU relied on 8 papers linking tree ring growth to temperatures in historical times. However, these papers were full of errors despite being approved by the (now known to be compromised) peer-review process.
These papers and indeed the entire CRU methodology was to express tree ring thickness solely in terms of temperature while ignoring or minimizing the effects of variations in water availability, nutrients, disease patterns, and the fact that increased CO2 would trigger more robust plant growth even though the actual temperature might remain constant or even decline.
Faith? I told it was a cult!!!
Yesterday Brian Williams delivered an NBC Nightly News report about President Obama attending the Copenhagen global warming summit. Guess what hot topic was left untouched? If you had guessed Climategate you would have been correct. Not only Williams but also the other TV networks, with the exception of FOX News, have completely ignored what is considered to be the biggest scientific scandal in history.

If you're wondering how the robot-like march of the world's politicians towards Copenhagen can possibly continue in the face of the scientific scandal dubbed "climategate," it's because Big Government, Big Business and Big Green don't give a s*** about "the science."
They never have.
How about tar and feathers, pitchforks and torches, rails, ropes, tumbrels; any of that catch your attention, cultists?
It is clear that the tip-top scientists implicated in the burgeoning Climategate scandal have no honor, but it is also becoming apparent that they have no sense of shame either. Their strategy is to brazen it out and rely on the great global warming alarmist establishment and the mainstream media to circle the wagons. They have got their talking point and the environmental pressure groups are already repeating it over and over: “The ‘global warming deniers’ are cherry-picking a few unfortunately worded emails and then taking them out of context.” Well, they are some pretty big, juicy cherries and there are a lots of them.
Billions of dollars in Carbon-Credit trading fees are on the line, as well as the push for a global government. With the revelation that New Zealand's Climate Center has also been exposed for faking a warming trend, this is truly an international scandal. The globalists are fearing for their very existence, and they know no morality to hold them in check. There is nothing they will not attempt to salvage their plans.
Wow, Australia’s parliament just imploded over discord due to emissions trading scheme being pushed by opposition leader Malcolm Turnbull
Climategate is not going to stop with the sacking of a few servile scientists!
This is a PDF file (large, about 11 meg) made from a PowerPoint slide show from Artesia Geological Services. It lays out the hard facts and figures about the effects of CO2, and illustrates much of the spin and fraud of the global warming cult.
Now, I am not saying the CRU/IPCC scientists are innocent. Quite the contrary they are in this mess up tho their necks, which do deserve a tall tree and short ropes. But this rush to pin the blame on the scientists is originating from those who hired the scientists and wrote the grants to find or create evidence of human caused global warming, to justify taxes and a global government.
Forget the henchmen; I want the masterminds on the gallows!
WHEN DOES AL GORE RESIGN?
WHEN DOES IPCC RESIGN?
WHEN DOES THE ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURE ARTS AND SCIENCES RESIGN?
WHEN DOES THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE COMMITTEE RESIGN?
YES, THE SCIENTISTS DID A VERY EVIL AND REPREHENSIBLE THING BY FAKING THE CLIMATE DATA, BUT LET US NOT IN OUR HASTE TO HANG THE HENCHMEN IGNORE THE RINGLEADERS!
This is a very subtle piece of propaganda.
This story and several others like it are trying to place the focus (and blame) for the Global Warming Hoax onto the scientists caught rigging the data. And yes, those scientists who sold out scientific method and their honor for a grant are guilty and have not gotten half the kicking around they deserve.
But in our haste to toss mud at those clean white lab coats, let us remember the golden rule of science; he who has the gold makes the rules.
So, the real culprits are the politicians and power brokers and investors; the NON-scientists, who bought themselves a crisis to use to trick the people of the world out of their money and their freedom, THESE are the real villains!
And in true villain style they are looking to offer up their hired help as sacrificial lambs for the slaughter in order to save their own sorry asses.
Please do not fall for it
Al Gore posed for a photo paddling a canoe. But in order to make sure the canoe would float for the photo-op, 4 billion gallons of water was released from a New Hampshire dam and allowed to escape down the creek. New Hampshire was in the middle of a record drought at the time.
This is the guy who sold you global warming and told you it was all your fault!
'I won't let the b*****s out until they've done a deal': Climate change envoy John Prescott reveals unusual approach to solving global warming
The leaders of the U.S., China and India should be 'shoved' into a room at next month's global warming summit - and not allowed out until they reach an agreement, according to John Prescott.
You will give us your money! And you will give us your obedience, maggots!
If the juvenile and wildly erratic behavior of celebrity environmentalist Ed Begley jr. is anything to go by,the warmists are more upset about ClimateGate than they are letting on!
This was so funny it put me on the floor in tears. Very funny video. If you want to see a global warming person lose it totally on camera then watch the video!
People are talking about the emails being smoking guns but I find the remarks in the code and the code more of a smoking gun. The code is so hacked around to give predetermined results that it shows the bias of the coder. In other words make the code ignore inconvenient data to show what I want it to show. The code after a quick scan is quite a mess. Anyone with any pride would be to ashamed of to let it out public viewing.
In other words, the actual computer software used by Hadley CRU was hacked to alter the results it produces.
Global Warming” is, and always was, a policy for genocidal reduction of the world’s population. The preposterous claim that human-produced carbon dioxide will broil the Earth, melt the ice caps, and destroy human life, came out of a 1975 conference in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, organized by the influential anthropologist Margaret Mead, president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), in 1974.
Although the majority of the attention around ClimateGate has focused on emails exchanged between CRU scientists, the real smoking gun proving deception and fraud can be found in the code of climate models which prove that temperature numbers were “artificially adjusted” to hide the decline in global warming since the 1960’s.
Attempts on behalf of the establishment media to characterize the scandal as “rancor” amongst scientists completely obfuscates the real issue, which is the fact that man-made climate change proponents gamed their data models to make them produce the results they wanted.
A prominent German scientist who was attacked in the leaked CRU emails by UN affiliated climate scientists has stated that the group should be barred from taking part in the peer-review process and excluded from the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Professor Hans von Storch, who is referred to in very unflattering terms several times in the leaked emails, points out that the CRU scientists acted as “gatekeepers”.
Le soleil et les taches solaires:
With 690 spotless days so far in this minimum as of June of this year, that is hardly outside of the range of previous minimums but it ain't over and there is no sign it will be anytime soon. The characteristics of the sunspots are unusual and don't look good to this interested lay person. Is this a lead in to a Maunder Minimum type Little Ice Age or is this the beginning of the big one? Time will tell.
The big story here is not the characteristics of sunspots changing but rather the changing tenor of the professional scientific community to stand up for true scientific debate that has been suppressed for so long. Far too long, in my opinion.
The total number of spotless days in this solar minimum exceeds 500 days since the last maximum. The number of blank days in this cycle now makes this sunspot cycle the longest since cycle
In fact, a blank sun was seen by astronomers for more than 260 days during 2008, making last year the second blankest year of the last century. Sunspot activity was also lacking throughout 2007.
So, if the sun stays quiet for a few more months we will begin to rival the activity of the sun in the early 1800s. It was the last time the earth has experienced such low solar activity and the result was dramatic global cooling referred to as the Dalton Minimum .
Repeat after me; "The sun has NO effect on Earth's temperature. The sun has NO effect on Earth's temperature. The sun has NO effect on Earth's temperature. The Earth is getting warmer! The Earth is getting warmer! Global warming is MY fault! Global warming is MY fault! I must atone by paying a carbon tax. I must atone by paying a carbon tax..."
The Sun normally undergoes an 11-year cycle of activity. At its peak, it has a tumultuous boiling atmosphere that spits out flares and planet-sized chunks of super-hot gas. This is followed by a calmer period.
Last year, it was expected that it would have been hotting up after a quiet spell. But instead it hit a 50-year year low in solar wind pressure, a 55-year low in radio emissions, and a 100-year low in sunspot activity.
According to Prof Louise Hara of University College London, it is unclear why this is happening or when the Sun is likely to become more active again.
Most scientists believe humans are the main culprit when it comes to global warming, and Weiss is no exception. He points out that the ice remained in Europe long after solar activity picked up from the Maunder minimum. Even if we had another, similar low, he says, it would probably only cause temperatures on Earth to drop by the order of a tenth of a degree Celsius - peanuts compared to recent hikes.
The total amount of cooling ranges from
The human-induced depletion of the protective ozone layer has altered wind patterns and caused temperatures in most of the southern continent to fall so that more cold air flows over the Southern Ocean, freezing the water, the scientists said today in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.
"So, whatever happens; it's your failt anyway and you have to pay for it!" -- Al Bore»
But like the stock market, the sunspot cycle is unpredictable. And just when astronomers thought it had hit bottom, it went lower. It has been a bear market for sunspots for many months now. That also means there have been no major space storms, which can zap satellites and threaten power grids on Earth.
Right now, the solar cycle is in a valley–the deepest of the past century. In 2008 and 2009, the sun set Space Age records for low sunspot counts, weak solar wind, and low solar irradiance. The sun has gone more than two years without a significant solar flare.
“In our professional careers, we’ve never seen anything quite like it,” says Pesnell. “Solar minimum has lasted far beyond the date we predicted in
For 2009, the number of “spotless” days are 123, as of May 31, which is 82%.
According to the forecast, the sun should remain generally calm for at least another year. This calm has a greater affect on Earth’s atmosphere than you might imagine. With low solar activity, the Earth’s atmosphere can cool and contract.
After lying dormant for a few months, the Sun is once again witnessing revival of Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) activities since May 5, which will help in determining the beginning of a new 11-year-solar cycle.
On May 5, the Sun produced an impressive coronal mass ejection (CME) and a burst of radio emissions, signalling the passage of a shock wave through its outer atmosphere, an alert from NASA said today.
During 2009 so far, the sun has been completely free of spots about 77 percent of the time. NASA researchers last month said quiet jet streams inside the sun were responsible, and that activity would soon return to normal.
L’homme et le CO2 ne causent pas les changements climatiques, les faits véritables:
This contention was challenged by Idso (1989), who wrote -- in reference to the very data that were used to support the claim -- that "changes in atmospheric CO2 content never precede changes in air temperature, when going from glacial to interglacial conditions; and when going from interglacial to glacial conditions, the change in CO2 concentration actually lags the change in air temperature (Genthon et al., 1987)." Hence, he concluded that "changes in CO2 concentration cannot be claimed to be the cause of changes in air temperature, for the appropriate sequence of events (temperature change following CO2 change) is not only never present, it is actually violated in [at least] half of the record (Idso, 1988)."
In other words, the very data the cultists claim proves that CO2 drives global temperature actually shows that CO2 levels are reacting to climate change. The mode, is simple. Earth gets warmer, animal populations increase, resulting in more CO2.
Ice Core Studies Prove CO2 Is Not the Powerful Climate Driver Climate Alarmists Make It Out to Be
Volume 6, Number 26:
For the past two decades or more, we have heard much about the global warming of the 20th century being caused by the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration that is generally attributed to anthropogenic CO2 emissions. This story, however, has always been controversial [see Smagorinsky et al. (1982) and Idso (1982) for early pro/con positions on the issue]; and with the retrieval and preliminary analysis of the first long ice core from Vostok, Antarctica -- which provided a 150,000-year history of both surface air temperature and atmospheric CO2 concentration -- the debate became even more intense, as the close associations of the ups and downs of atmospheric CO2 and temperature that were evident during glacial terminations and inceptions in that record, as well as in subsequent records of even greater length, led many climate alarmists to claim that those observations actually proved that anthropogenic CO2 emissions were responsible for 20th-century global warming.
A central tenet of “climate change” dogma holds that increased emissions (2 billion tons a year in 1850 to 35 billion tons a year now) leads to greater CO2 levels in the atmosphere. But a new study from the University of Bristol could shake up traditional assumptions. The study suggests that CO2 levels have remained constant since 1850.
According to the University, “The results run contrary to a significant body of recent research which expects that the capacity of terrestrial ecosystems and the oceans to absorb CO2 should start to diminish as CO2 emissions increase, letting greenhouse gas levels skyrocket.” In fact, the trend in the airborne fraction has only been 0.7 ± 1.4% per decade (essentially zero).
There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.

A new peer-reviewed climate study is presenting a head on challenge to man-made global warming claims. The study by three climate researchers appears in the July 23, 2009 edition of Journal of Geophysical Research.
The earth’s climate (in contrast to the climate in current climate GCMs) is dominated by a strong net negative feedback. Climate sensitivity is on the order of
Alarming climate predictions depend critically on the fact that models have large positive feedbacks. The crucial question is whether nature actually behaves this way? The answer, as we have just seen, is unambiguously no.
The Australian Geologist Who's Exposed the Hoax
James Delingpole talks to Professor Ian Plimer, the Australian geologist, whose new book shows that ‘anthropogenic global warming’ is a dangerous, ruinously expensive fiction, a ‘first-world luxury’ with no basis in scientific fact. Shame on the publishers who rejected the book.
Imagine how wonderful the world would be if man-made global warming were just a figment of Al Gore’s imagination. No more ugly wind farms to darken our sunlit uplands. No more whopping electricity bills, artificially inflated by EU-imposed carbon taxes. No longer any need to treat each warm, sunny day as though it were some terrible harbinger of ecological doom. And definitely no need for the $7.4 trillion cap and trade (carbon-trading) bill – the largest tax in American history – which President Obama and his cohorts are so assiduously trying to impose on the US economy.
Imagine no more, for your fairy godmother is here. His name is Ian Plimer, Professor of Mining Geology at Adelaide University, and he has recently published the landmark book Heaven And Earth, which is going to change forever the way we think about climate change.
While the NASA study acknowledged the sun's influence on warming and cooling patterns, it then went badly off the tracks. Ignoring its own evidence, it returned to an argument that man had replaced the sun as the cause current warming patterns. Like many studies, this conclusion was based less on hard data and more on questionable correlations and inaccurate modeling techniques.
The inconvertible fact, here is that even NASA's own study acknowledges that solar variation has caused climate change in the past. And even the study's members, mostly ardent supports of AGW theory, acknowledge that the sun may play a significant role in future climate changes.
More than two-thirds of this upward trend in recent decades can be attributed to changes in African dust storm and tropical volcano activity during that time, report Evan and his colleagues at UW-Madison and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in a new paper. Their findings will appear in an upcoming issue of the journal Science and publish online March 26.
