As riots and chaos descend upon the climate confab in Copenhagen, a fresh set of revelations about the Climategate scandal involving the Climate Research Unit at Britain’s East Anglia University is now spreading like wildfire. From the UK Telegraph’s James Delingpole:
Climategate just got much, much bigger. And all thanks to the Russians who, with perfect timing, dropped this bombshell just as the world’s leaders are gathering in Copenhagen to discuss ways of carbon-taxing us all back to the dark ages…
Delingpole quotes from a Russian newspaper which says that the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis has gone through the CRU’s Russian temperature data and concluded that CRU cherry-picked it to show global warming which doesn’t exist. Says Delingpole:
What the Russians are suggesting here, in other words, is that the entire global temperature record used by the IPCC to inform world government policy is a crock.
The global warming advocacy movement is rapidly coming apart at the seams. Even Greenpeace is taking it on the chin.
