As hell freezes over, here on earth we have more evidence emerging that anthropogenic global warming (AGW) may be nothing short of a shoddy hoax perpetrated by a coalition of scientists in search of funding, ex-politicians and wannabe celebrities in search of personal fame and fortune and left-wing globalists in search of a cause on which to hang a massive shift in wealth from richer to poorer nations.
I read at the United Kingdom’s The Daily Telegraph’s Web site that Professor Phil Jones, from the Climate Research Unit at University of East Anglia, has made several troubling admissions.
Readers may remember that Professor Jones stepped down in December as director of the University of East Anglia’s climate change unit after hacked e-mails appeared to show manipulation of the research data that was used to support claims that global warming is manmade. The public release of the e-mails set off a storm of controversy some in the news media dubbed as “climategate.”
Apparently, the professor has now admitted he may have lost track of some of the data used to produce the famous “hockey stick” graph, which uses climate readings from worldwide weather stations to show a sharp rise in global temperatures. Moreover, Professor Jones has conceded that there has been no “statistically significant” global warming since 1995. The trend, he said, is positive, but not significantly so.
So taken in have some Canadian leaders been by the distortions and outright lies by the proponents of AGW that we witnessed representatives of the Ontario and Quebec Liberal governments, David Miller, mayor of Toronto and Green Party Leader Elizabeth May traveling thousands of miles to Copenhagen to slag off Canada in front of international audiences.
The time is coming—sooner than they may think—when they may have to eat their words.
