Read here. The infamous Climategate (and other 'Gate') scientists and government agencies, which have been exposed as scientific charlatans and false prophets of climate doom, have devised a coordinated, PR propaganda campaign that puts a public face on their continuing denial of the exposed scientific malfeasance associated with global warming science. This public exposure of malfeasance has resulted, for climate scientists, climate agencies and global warming activists, an immense credibility loss, and has severely damaged the reputation of the overall science community.
Here is how a relatively small group of climate scientists and their facilitators (i.e., IPCC, Al Gore, George Soros, etc.) managed to accomplish this almost impossible to do achievement:
1. Willfully sensationalized global warming hypothetical, catastrophic scenarios.
2. Willfully mislead the public and politicians about multiple factors that cause warming other than human CO2 emissions.
3. Willfully adjusted and manipulated past temperature data to make recent warming appear greater than actually experienced.
4. Willfully removed thousands of global location's temperature data from the official records that showed flat or cooler temperatures (i.e. removed rural, high altitude and high northern latitude stations).
5. Willfully conspired to withhold needed data, algorithms and software that would allow any scientist to replicate the "claimed" results and evidence that climate scientists used to support their favored Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) hypothesis.
6. Willfully constructed false historical temperature records using cherry-picked data and datasets; using unreliable proxies as temperature thermometers; and, used non-standard, non-robust statistical and mathematical techniques.
7. Willfully relied on unreliable climate simulation models to make invalid, purely speculative predictions about the climate hundreds of years into the future.
8. Willfully attributed (blamed) every weather event/incident or negative societal condition to human CO2 emitted by wealthy countries.
9. Willfully conspired to keep critical-AGW scientific findings out of peer-reviewed publications.
10. Willfully attacked personally any scientist who challenged the AGW CO2 orthodoxy, or with silence condoned those who attempted to stifle all scientific debate using anti-scientific terms such as "consensus" or "the science is settled."
The above ten are just the proverbial tip of the iceberg. By embracing and/or condoning the above actions, the AGW climate scientists have self-positioned themselves as conspiratorial, habitual liars, who are not to be trusted. Their past actions have led to multiple, world-wide government and university investigations to be initiated against these climate scientists. In the U.S., various states are now legally challenging the EPA's proposed CO2 regulations that were based on the fraudulent science of these taxpayer funded climate scientists.Why did they do the above? With billions of research dollars at stake and potentially immense power and control over governments and economies, the temptation to do evil was just too great. As this new PR propaganda campaign reveals, pro-AGW climate scientists have not been exorcised of the evil yet.
