We’re not the only ones wondering

February 15, 2010

In an earlier post, I wrote a bit about the lack of mainstream media coverage of the ClimateGate scandal and the growing collapse of the Global Warming mania.

I’m not the only one wondering about the curious incident of the dog in the night-time:

If there’s one thing the Snowpocalypse-hastened collapse of the Great Global Warming Hoax has shown us, among other things, it’s that Mark Steyn, as usual, was right all along, and “Anthropogenic Global Warming” — ridiculous on its face, as anyone who knows history could have said, and did — was as much a journalistic scandal as a scientific one.

Think about their coverage of ClimateGate and the global-warming controversy in general, and then about how the major media protected Barack Obama and refused to investigate his career, his associations, and his political beliefs during the presidential race. Then recall how they spent much of their free time in that same campaign savaging Sarah Palin. Do just that, and the professional and ethical bankruptcy of the media becomes clear.

Mainstream journalism is dead.

FAIR IS FAIR: Apparently The Washington Post still has some integrity left, albeit their spin of this scandal as “missteps” is laughable. (h/t NewsBusters)

TANGENTIAL UPDATE: An example of how the media ignored the political environment in which Obama was raised.

How do you say “Hide the decline” in Swedish?

Looks like we have another case of playing fast and loose with the data, this time in Scandinavia:

Climate skeptic blogger Frank Lansner at Hide the Decline (EU) has done an excellent job in bringing to our attention the analysis of Swedish scientist and skeptic, Dr. Wibjorn Karlen from Stockholm University, who has studied the Scandinavian temperature records between 1900 and 2000.

Dr. Karlén has debunked the fraud of the IPCC for falsifying the temperature of the Scandinavian region at the end of the 20th century to make them appear a staggerring 0.7 Degree Centigrade higher than actually existed.

In fact, the peak in temperatures for this cold northern European territory occurred not in recent years, but between 1930-50. After compiling data from all the available data sources in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden Karlén found that:

  • “The very significant temperature peak around 1930-40 has been reduced almost removed totally.”

Read the whole thing. This fraud is crumbling faster than a wet cookie.

Hot on the heels of Phil Jones’ devastating interview, Hitler learns that the global-warming scam is falling apart:
