ClimateGate II Takes Center Stage–Global Warming Hoax Redux

If you thought the University of East Anglia email dump from two years ago was revealing, put your drink down and take a deep breath.

There’s a whole new dump of 5,000 emails and documents leaked by FOIA.org, and they are just as damning – and more so – than the first batch.

James Watts has the best synopsis here.

Here’s a teaser sample from Michael Mann:

email 1680.txt

from: “Michael E. Mann”..
subject: Re: Something not to pass on
to: Phil Jones

I would not respond to this. They will misrepresent and take out of context anything you give them. This is a set up. They will certainly publish this, and will ignore any evidence to the contrary that you provide. s They are going after Wei-Chyung because he’s U.S. and there is a higher threshold for establishing libel. Nonetheless, he should
consider filing a defamation lawsuit, perhaps you too.

I have been talking w/ folks in the states about finding an investigative journalist to investigate and expose McIntyre, and his thusfar unexplored connections with fossil fuel interests.Perhaps the same needs to be done w/ this Keenan guy.

I believe that the only way to stop these people is by exposing them and discrediting them….

Very simply, what these emails confirm is that the great man-made global warming scare is not about science but about political activism.

The difference now is that the lamestream media was very slow to pick up on the first scandal, but this time, they’re going to be all over it. Watch for some interesting fireworks soon from your favorite activist global warming alarmist friends.
