The 9-12 Project of Central PA

"You Are NOT Alone!"

Has anyone been following the Climategate scandal? Of course we have, even though the MSM is doing their best to paper it over. But, did you know one of the primary figures from the leaked email scandal is from right here in Central PA?

International 'climatology' dissembler, er, I mean celebrity Michael Mann is a professor at PSU http://www.meteo.psu.edu/~mann/Mann/index.html It is his Siberian tree rings hoax, er, selected data, that is the basis for much of the historical evidence of global warming.

Would love to stop by PSU and see what he has to say about the scandal. Anyone have a video and want to do some investigative reporting the MSM won't do?

Oh, this was pretty much all the CDT had to say on the matter. Give them credit for at least interviewing Mann, but where are the tough questions and challenges to his weak defense. And they couldn't be expected to contact anyone on the other side I guess! http://www.centredaily.com/news/education/penn_state/story/1646329.... and http://www.centredaily.com/news/education/penn_state/story/1652899....

The biggest scientific scandal since the dark ages happening right in our neighborhood, and CDT whiffs.
Great post from John Stossel on Michael MANN, Climategate, and the Stimulus slush fund $$$. I hope John will do a piece on his show. Maybe Beck or O'Reilly will take it up. This makes me sick! Corruption of science and government, and 'Big U' exposed for the money making fraud that it is.

Some people believe that man made carbon emissions have an effect on the earths climate, some people don"t . I personally don"t belive it. Either way ...CAP AND TRADE, is not the answer. Alot of con men will get filthy rich ...with no end results.

So what are the real facts about global warming?
1.Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is not a pollutant. CO2 is necessary for life on earth. Nothing would be green without it. Vegetation thrives on increased levels of CO2. CO2 amounts to approximately 0.04% [1] of the Earth’s atmosphere. Likewise, mankind’s contributions to annual atmospheric carbon dioxide emissions are tiny. 97% of the CO2 released into the air is from natural sources. Mankind is thus responsible for 3% of the 0.04% of the atmosphere that’s comprised of carbon dioxide (0.001% of the atmosphere). As a greenhouse gas, CO2 is a weak agent. The most powerful contributor to the greenhouse effect is water vapor, which is responsible for 95% of the Earth’s greenhouse effect [2].
2.The Climate Changes. The Earth has constantly gone through periods of warming and cooling. The recent warming trend (which has now reversed – average world temperatures have been falling for the last decade) is not outside the natural variation that’s been observed in the geologic record. Mankind had nothing to do with the onset or end of any of the numerous past ice ages or warm periods.
3.Garbage in, Garbage Out. Computer models used by UN IPCC scientists that project catastrophic global warming are based on flawed inputs. The models assume that when average global temperatures are rising, less solar radiation is escaping from the Earth’s atmosphere. A new study by MIT climate scientist Richard Lindzen, using 15 years of data collected from an orbiting satellite found that the exact opposite is true [3].
4.Consensus. Science isn’t determined by consensus. Consensus is a mechanism of politics. We always hear that the debate is over, the science is settled and the scientific consensus is that we are facing a manmade global warming crisis. It’s a lie. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change consists of hundreds of bureaucrats and only a handful of scientists. Only 50 IPCC scientists were responsible for the reports claiming catastrophic climate change is around the corner. 54 IPCC scientists dissented, but their remarks were excluded from the reports. Over 31,000 scientists from around the world, each holding a bachelor’s or higher degree (over 9,000 PhDs) have now signed a document stating that global warming is not a serious concern [4]. There is a consensus, but it’s not what we’ve been told.

Why should American citizens be concerned about cap-and-trade?
Cap-and-trade will impose huge costs upon American citizens. Cap-and-trade will impose a carbon tax on all goods and services produced in the United States. The average family of four can expect to pay an additional $1700 or more each year. The United States is expected to lose more than 2 million jobs as the result of cap-and-trade schemes. Poor and middle-income families will be hurt the most. All of this for little, if any, real impact on the earth’s climate. Even proponents of cap-and-trade have acknowledged that this scheme will only amount to approximately 1/10 of 1 degree of temperature change in 100 years.

The following video does a good job of explaining Cap and Tax ...but she assumes that man made carbon emissions have an effect on the earths climate, which is hogwash.

The Story of Cap & Trade
This might be a good topic to protest at the tea party. Need to get press somehow some way.
You're right not to trust this. But I seriously doubt it will get anywhere in the legislature. Conklin and Corman will block any investigate legislative investigation. CDT had an article about the Commonwealth Foundation story. Here is the direct message they sent on my Twitter account, with the link: centredailycom
Lawmakers asked to probe prof’s research http://bit.ly/8hFTCv From today's paper... we'll keep running stories when there's new developments

But the plot thickens: the esteemed Dr. Mann received $541,000 in 'Stimulus" money for his research (how that stimulates anything but Democrat propaganda I'll never guess linked here:

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2010/01/14/climategate-s...

I also read an article where PSU got more than $2.5 million in stimulus money for similar research. I find it unlikely that the U will cut ties to the global warming gravy train even though Mann is largely discredited.

Again, this is the biggest scientific fraud in more than 500 years, and it is happening in our back yards. Anyone want to head up to PSU with a video camera and try to talk ot 'Dr.' Mann?

Great idea, but good luck getting in to see him! I've written PSU multiple time trying to learn who is on the inquiry panel, where it will be publicly accessible, and how I can obtain documents it generates.. Brick wall. Now I've got an insider. Let's see what I can turn up.
Sen. Jim Inhofe is calling for a criminal investigation of Michael Mann - specifically for his use of the $500K in stimulus funds. Penn State won't be able to help him if it gets off the ground. Here is a link to an article on this -
I think the US Reps of PA and Senators should be screaming for freezing funding to Penn State until this is fully resolved. Of course, we don't hear any such things from our elected officials. Likewise, the state Legislature should be demanding an explanation and we do not hear anything from there as well. Cutting Penn State's funding is definitely a way to get their attention and to stop ignoring the issue. In politics, most American's have a short attention span. If you ignore it long enough, it eventually goes away. Likewise, if you proclaim a lie/myth long enough, put enough $ into it, then people buy into it as the truth. After all, life takes Visa, right?
