Wikipedia caught in Climategate Scandal

I’ve commented positively on Wikipedia, and I’ve linked Wikipedia on this site quite often. I knew that it was slightly slanted to the left, but given that everything else is, I found them to be inside the credibility circle.

Not anymore.

Lawrence Solomon: Wikipedia’s climate doctor

The Climategate Emails reveal something else, too: the enlistment of the most widely read source of information in the world — Wikipedia — in the wholesale rewriting of this history.

The Medieval Warm Period, which followed the meanness and cold of the Dark Ages, was a great time in human history — it allowed humans around the world to bask in a glorious warmth that vastly improved agriculture, increased life spans and otherwise bettered the human condition.

But the Medieval Warm Period was not so great for some humans in our own time — the same small band that believes the planet has now entered an unprecedented and dangerous warm period. As we now know from the Climategate Emails, this band saw the Medieval Warm Period as an enormous obstacle in their mission of spreading the word about global warming. If temperatures were warmer 1,000 years ago than today, the Climategate Emails explain in detail, their message that we now live in the warmest of all possible times would be undermined. As put by one band member, a Briton named Folland at the Hadley Centre, a Medieval Warm Period “dilutes the message rather significantly.”

Even before the Climategate Emails came to light, the problem posed by the Medieval Warm Period to this band was known. “We have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period” read a pre-Climategate email, circa 1995, as attested to at hearings of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works. But the Climategate transcripts were more extensive and more illuminating — they provided an unvarnished look at the struggles that the climate practitioners underwent before settling on their scientific dogma.

Climategate – like the legalized money laundering scheme we call American Public Education – is another example of the cancer that is spreading everywhere around us. Corruption, greed, and the lust for political control over the lives of individuals is in the process of destroying our culture.

Proud to be a Denier of Anthropic Global Warming

Here is a great site that you can point your friends to regarding the nonsense of man made(Anthropic) global warming.

The Deniers-Condensed

There is nothing wrong with denying man-made global warming. We were right to be skeptical in 1988, and we were right to be skeptical all the way through to 2008, when the silliness of the idea finally started to sink in with enough people to erode the idiocy behind the theory.
