Senator Calls for Investigation of Global Warming Fraud

It seems that a week doesn’t pass without some new revelation of fraud, shoddy scholarship or doctored data at the the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).   They got things wrong about the Himalayan glaciers, the Amazonian rain forest, hurricanes and rising sea levels.

And yet politicians wanted to rely on the panel’s findings to create vast new bureaucracies, controlling our energy consumption and regulating our lives.  No wonder one politician (one of those once-derided skeptics) thinks an investigation is warranted:

Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) today asked the Obama administration to investigate what he called “the greatest scientific scandal of our generation” — the actions of climate scientists revealed by the Climategate Files, and the subsequent admissions by the editors of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report (AR4).

Senator Inhofe also called for former Vice President Al Gore to be called back to the Senate to testify.

“In [Gore's] science fiction movie, every assertion has been rebutted,” Inhofe said. He believes Vice President Gore should defend himself and his movie before Congress.

That movie, An Inconvenient Truth, which won an Oscar for Best Documentary, might better be called An Overhyped Fraud.

Inhofe wants “the Department of Justice to investigate whether there has been research misconduct or criminal actions by the scientists involved”.  Those scientists do seem to have done everything in the power to forge a consensus for their conclusions.  But, they inconveniently hid their date and conveniently suppressed peer-reviewed work that conflicted with their conclusions.  As one blogger put it, “When you so obviously stack the deck in your favor, it is no wonder you get a consensus.

  1. The Incoherent Boob needs to be subpoenaed to explain himself and his lame ass “movie”.

  2. Now just imagine if the GOP takes the Senate this fall…

    Ah yes, the Inconvenient Truth faces the glare of a Senate investigation.

    I’m not much of an Inhofe fan, but on this one melikes!

  3. I don’t like this at all.

    Not that I don’t want to see Al Gore the Lying Whore sweating under the lights, explaining why he and his fellow “scientists” were manipulating, ignoring, and downright forging data to meet their predetermined conclusions, then using academic protocol and the media to systematically shout down and hound out of existence their critics.

    But there are far more pressing things than this on which the Senate needs to spend its business. They need to note how the US media has utterly buried this story, compared to the global media, and then let the humiliated press try to get back their veneer of objectivity by savaging the bejesus out of Gore and the Obama Party that supports him.

    Focus on removing stupid regulations, taking tax burdens off working and productive Americans, and slashing the bloated and underperforming Federal bureaucracy. That should be more than enough to keep them busy.

  4. 3: I disagree. We need to kill this nonsense once and for all before the Dems get a chance to impose “cap and trade” later. heck, not only that but how much is this global warming crap costing us right now?

  5. But there are far more pressing things than this on which the Senate needs to spend its business.

    In the internet age, I really don’t think there is such a distinction of a global media or US media. So, ultimately, I don’t think it matters much what the “US” media does or doesn’t do. If they continued decline of both readership and revenue continue, and they don’t get the clue that they’re ef’ing up, then the Senate really doesn’t need to get involved in the media aspect of this at all. To paraphrase Newt, “Let them whither on the vine”.

    Dan, spot-on. Brought a smile to my face :-)

  7. Unfortunately, I think Government Motors is too busy tearing Toyota a new one in a thinly veiled attempt to make their cars look better.

  8. 1.) If there is climate crisis on our doorstep and there is something puny mankind can do about it, then our government should address the threat.

    2.) Meanwhile, there are a ton of things our government must address and climate is not one of them, unless #1 is true.

    3.) I favor colorful sunsets more often and of greater intensity. Suppose a consensus of Americans agree. Shall we go into debt for mad-made more glorious sunsets?

    4.) If man made global warming has cost me tax dollars to chase moonbeams in order to catch them in a jar and if there are more bills lined up to take even more of my money for the scam, then, HECK YES, the perps should be investigated. It sounds like a RICO sort of thing to me.

    5.) Tano had made himself unreachable for the party line comments.

    6.) Actually, I prefer an investigation of TARP and the Stimulus Bill that transfers money from the treasury to pals and cronies to take precedence.

  9. You think Democrats are in trouble now, just wait until Republicans have subpoena power. The industrial shredders will be working overtime after November.

  10. IT’s just floating out there but Inhofe has supposed ties to the Ugandan Kill the MO frenzy plus his supposed links to ‘THE FAMILY’ along with his buddy Ensign.

    Let’s see. . . some fine duck and cover or some thing. .

    will be interesting if Inhofe is successful in getting an investigation started and will have public disclosure. . .on the fraud — the global warming fraud .

  11. Global warming or not. Time to dig out of 1 ft. plus of snow again. :-(
