[What follows is a transcript of a monologue by Rush Limbaugh from his November 24, 2009 radio program]
Do you know that the Fox News Channel is the only television outlet to report on ClimateGate?¬† The rest of the media is totally ignoring it.¬† The Washington Post is actually attacking the “deniers.” This whole hoax has been fully exposed.¬† These people were hiding data. They were hiding data from a Freedom of Information request. There are e-mails from the guy that ran the place, this university in England, to all of his contributors and all the members of his committee: “Don’t release any information. I’ll delete it rather than release it, if I have to.”¬† They made up numbers.¬† They totally ignored numbers that disproved global cooling.¬† This is a giant, giant, giant scam.¬† It deserves a huge investigation.¬† And Obama, if he was worth his salt, would be the first one demanding it because this has been allowed to hijack an international agenda that is oriented toward further fleecing of the United States.¬† That’s all it is.
We’re going to talk about Copenhagen. We really live, folks, in two worlds. There are two worlds. We live in two universes.¬† One universe is a lie.¬† One universe is an entire lie. Everything run, dominated, and controlled by the left here and around the world is a lie.¬† The other universe is where we are, and that’s where reality reigns supreme and we deal with it.¬† And seldom do these two universes ever overlap.¬† A great illustration is what’s happening here with what is now incontrovertibly known as a hoax.¬† We know that the lead place, this Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University — which is the number one advisor and communicator with the IPCC, which is the UN’s climate-control crowd.
We know that data was made up to advance the notion that man is causing the climate to warm.¬† We know that data was purposely left out that hides the fact that the earth is cooling.¬† Even on this bunch’s website, they cannot hide the fact that temperatures have not increased the last ten years, and they’ve had to come up with some of the most irrational, illogical explanations for it.¬† “Well, it’s the ocean currents out there. It could be El Nino or La Nina. A lot of stuff is going on,” but they specifically ignore anything related to the sun!¬† And without the sun, there’s nothing.¬† How you can ignore the sun in the whole concept of warming is idiocy.¬† But the point is this:¬† We have now the facts.¬† I don’t care how it happened, whistle-blower or a hacker.
Remember, all of this information was subject to Freedom of Information requests, and they were deleting information that would harm them.¬† They were deleting information and fighting the release.¬† So it’s a hoax.¬† We know these people — and I’ve known it all along.¬† I know who these people are.¬† I know who communists are.¬† I know who liberals are.¬† I know how they have to get things done.¬† They have to lie.¬† This ought to be among the biggest stories to come down the pike in a year, and it is in that side of the universe where we all live, in the real world.¬† As far as the left is concerned, the story hasn’t happened.¬† The Indian prime minister is talking about moving fast on Copenhagen.¬† Copenhagen is where they hope to come up with the next Kyoto treaty to punish the leading energy producers and the leading economies of the world.¬† Copenhagen ought to be discredited! It ought to be canceled.¬† There’s no reason for it.¬† There’s no reason for anybody to advance any piece of legislation aimed at reversing something that is not happening.
Instead, what is happening is the people in the Universe of Lies are ignoring it.¬† Their agenda will be paramount — and I guarantee you that as we speak, the hoaxers and everybody involved in it from Algore on up to this Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University are plotting strategy on how to keep forging forward because of two things.¬† There is a hell of a lot of money at the end of this train and these people want to get their hands on it.¬† A lot of it is ours, a lot of it is grants from other governments, plus the power that’s going to come with that.¬† The second thing is that the scientists involved in this so-called consensus stand to have their reputations in ruin if this ever becomes a mainstream story.¬† So they’re going to move fast.¬† Even as we speak right now, they’re plotting strategy to discredit the truth of the hoax.¬† I don’t know how they’re going to do it, but I know these people, and they’re going to do that.
When they come out with whatever their answer is, they’re going to be given total support by the worldwide media, the president of the United States, Algore. And once again it will be the people who look at the truth — the e-mails back and forth, scientists in and outside this organization, those people — are going to be attacked as invading the privacy of people, showing things that have never been intended to be seen in the public eye and basically characterized as extremists and “deniers” and knuckle-draggers. “I mean, people are so old-fashioned! Are we going to get serious with saving our planet?”¬† They are not going to give this up.¬† They’re not going to give it up.¬† Obama’s even talking more about climate change legislation.¬† Even though he may not go to Copenhagen, he’s still talking about how we must at least move forward on cap and trade in this country because it’s important to save the world. “We must use renewable energy.¬† Coal and oil are destroying the planet!”
This can drive rational, reasonable, average people insane trying to juxtapose these two universes — the Universe of Reality and the Universe of Lies.¬† The Washington Times has an editorial on this, and the headline:¬† “Hiding Evidence of Global Cooling,” and they cite e-mails back and forth that have been uncovered that prove manipulation of data.¬† “The content of these e-mails raises extremely serious questions that could end the academic careers of many prominent professors. Academics who have purposely hidden data, destroyed information and doctored their results have committed scientific fraud.
“We can only hope respected academic institutions such as Pennsylvania State University, the University of Arizona and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst conduct proper investigative inquiries,” because they’re involved in this. They have people that are involved. “Most important, however, these revelations of fudged science should have a cooling effect on global-warming hysteria and the panicked policies that are being pushed forward to address the unproven theory.” It’s worse than that.¬† It’s a made-up theory that has no scientific evidence backing up one shred of it.
You know, folks, the two universes here — The Universe of Lies, The Universe of Reality — they don’t overlap anymore.¬† And this is even bigger than global warming, which was my point yesterday.¬† It’s about everything that the left is involved in.¬† What this fraud, what the uncovering of this hoax exposes, is the corruption that exists between government and academia and science and the media.¬† Science has been corrupted.¬† We know the media has been corrupted for a long time.¬† Academia has been corrupted.¬† None of what they do is real.¬† It’s all lies! It is all oriented toward a political outcome.¬† It’s bigger than global warming.¬† And of course science has been corrupted here. Science is being used for political purposes.
It always has been, but this is a new low — or a new high, depending on your perspective.¬† But what they have done here is now make it reasonable to doubt everything some scientist says who gets government money from somewhere.¬† And if you know what’s good for you, if you know that they’re leftists, you won’t believe anything they say any time, anywhere, about anything.¬† Their ideas are so hideous, are so insidious, so anti-free market, that they have to dress their ideas up in a phony cloak of compassion: Saving the planet, saving the polar bears, saving the water, saving the earth, saving whatever it is. “Saving the poor,” while they destroy the poor.¬† It just infuriating. So we have now the Four Corners of Deceit, and the two universes in which we live.¬† The Universe of Lies, the Universe of Reality, and The Four Corners of Deceit: Government, academia, science, and media.¬† Those institutions are now corrupt and exist by virtue of deceit.¬† That’s how they promulgate themselves; it is how they prosper.
Now, I looked up what Obama had to say about science in his immaculation speech back in January while I was thinking about the global warming science cover-up that’s going on out there.¬† Given how Obama feels and thinks about science (at least what he said about it) what will his reaction be to the “poof,” as Lanny Davis would say, that top global warming scientists are really lying global warming political scientists?¬† Here’s what he said: “For everywhere we look, there is work to be done. The state of the economy calls for action, bold and swift. And we will act, not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.¬† We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.¬† We will restore science to its rightful place, and wield the technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost.”
Now, if, if he meant what he said, he would declare a national emergency.¬† If he meant “restoring science to its rightful place,” because it has been corrupted, he would call a national emergency. He would cancel every green program that’s going on, which has as its foundation “saving the planet.”¬† He would cancel every tax increase that is scheduled or being discussed that has to do with saving the planet.¬† He would unilaterally demand that every corrupt scientist be named and ostracized, if he really wanted to restore science to its “rightful place.”¬† He would get the bad apples out of the barrel and make sure they never got in, and he would name names and he would be outraged at this degree of corruption that has led the world down a path that will lead to the further harm, and perhaps destruction as we know it, of the United States of America.
He should be outraged! He is the leading protector and defender of this country and its Constitution.¬† If he really meant what he said back in his immaculation speech when he said we will “restore science to its rightful place,” he would be demanding heads.¬† Heads would roll! He would want to know how this happened, how did this scam take place, who was it that thought it up, who have been the participators in this scam, and who have been their allies.¬†¬† Now, I don’t expect any of this to happen.¬† I’m saying this to illustrate just how far off-the-track this country has become.
He would call for an immediate investigation of all these global warming proponents to see just how much of the scientific community is practicing this fraud and this deceit.¬† It’s the biggest lie, it is the biggest fraud, the biggest scam in the history of the world.¬† We have had treaties that nations have signed.¬† We have seen treaties that we came close to ratifying.¬† We’re going back to Copenhagen and they’re going to try to rebuild what’s falling apart.¬† All in the name of science, which is the pursuit of facts and truth, which no longer is what science is about.¬† It has been corrupted.¬† The only way to restore science to its rightful place is to speak out on this fraud, investigate this scam; make it right by exposing the fraud, the deceit, and the cover-up, and name names.¬† But that’s not going to happen.¬† Because Obama himself isn’t. “White House…” This is Politico.com. “White House Hits Back on Climate Critics — It’s been a bad few weeks for the Obama administration when it comes to climate change, as the White House has found itself trapped between a stalled Senate and constant hammering from world leaders on the lack of leadership on global warming.¬† On Monday, the administration hit back.”
Now, it was Thursday that the e-mails were released that we have all now read and seen and have concluded that the whole thing is a hoax, and Politico, living in The Universe of Lies, doesn’t even refer to that! “White House Hit[ting] Back on Climate Critics”?¬† I thought the story was going to be about Obama hitting back at people who are reading these e-mails and finding a hoax.¬† No! He’s hitting back at people saying he’s not doing enough to advance global warming. “[A] senior White House official, who briefed reporters on the condition of anonymity,” said, “‘It would be a mistake to conclude that the international community’s failure to reach a final treaty in Copenhagen is due to a lack of domestic legislation in the United States.’”
So poor little Obama is feeling criticized by the people of the world who he thought were going to love him and respect him and respect the United States, and all of a sudden they’re complaining to him because their history, the tradition they know, is we take the bullets. The pioneers take the arrows. We do the dirty work around the world, and Obama is not doing it on an issue that they thought he was in the can for, all signed and delivered.¬† And now he may not even go to this thing.¬† I don’t even know how you can write the story.¬† I don’t know how you can write the story and ignore the proof that global warming, climate change — how loudly do I have to shout it? — IS A HOAX!
What does it take for people to understand it is a hoax?
But if you live in The Universe of Lies, the last thing that you are governed by is the truth.¬† The last thing you are governed by is reality.¬† The only thing that matters to you is the advancement of your political agenda.¬† And you tell yourself in The Universe of Lies that your agenda is so important the world will not survive without it and therefore you could lie, cheat, steal, destroy whoever you have to to get your agenda done — because your opponents are eeevil, and in fighting eeevil, anything goes.¬† There are no rules when you’re in a fight with the Devil.¬† And that is why in The Universe of Lies in this country, those of us who live in The Universe of Reality are the true enemy.¬† We are the real enemy.
It’s not Hugo Chavez, it’s not Russia, it’s not Iran, it’s not Al-Qaeda, it’s not Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.¬† We are the enemy because we stand not only in the way of their agenda, but we also expose them daily for what they are: Frauds in the media, in academia, in science, and in government.¬† In the old days before there was a New Media, whatever the government did was considered pure.¬† The media was considered pure.¬† Science was considered pure.¬† Academia was considered pure.¬† Now millions of Americans have had their suspicions of decades confirmed that all of these institutions are frauds, that they put forth a face and an image that hides their truth because it must.
They couldn’t get anywhere were they honest.¬† So The Four Corners of Deceit:¬† Government, academia, science, and media, have been exposed, and the real enemy are those who are doing the exposing.¬† They will continue to live in The Universe of Lies. They will continue to report on meaningless templates like this: All these people around the world concerned about greenhouse gas emissions” and “Obama hasn’t passed legislation here, and so the world can’t act until Obama acts, ” and you sit here, you read it and you scratch your head.
It’s a hoax!¬† It is a hoax!¬† It isn’t real!¬† It never was real.
Have you ever noticed how the media and others always declare that it’s the “respected” scientists who are the ones who believe in global warming?¬† “The consensus of respected scientists.”¬† And, by the way, I must remind you again that if there is consensus involved — i.e., a vote — then there’s no science.¬† If words mean anything, it’s not possible.¬† Science is not up for a vote.¬† What is to be “respected” about lying, bending data, and cursing those who ask questions?¬† That’s the basis of science itself, is inquiry, curiosity, constant test of the data, make sure it’s what it is before we say it’s what it is.¬† Algore says “the scientist I respect most,” like that’s some sort of accolade. They get to declare who’s the scientist to listen to just like they tell us who our nominee should be based not on degrees or results, but on who they like.¬† You can have studied for degrees and worked in the field for 30 years. They’ll put up as your equal or even superior someone who wakes up one day and declares himself an “environmentalist,” that has a fax machine and a cute-looking logo.
Now, the New York Times, our old buddy over there, Andrew Revkin.¬† The New York Times is asking for information on the whistle-blower.¬† The New York Times and Washington Post are more interested in tracking down and punishing the whistle-blower than they are in publishing the now-confirmed-as-authentic e-mails and documents.¬† This is what passes for journalism from two of our foremost newspapers.¬† They have been corrupted.¬† They are parts of the Four Corners of Deceit.¬† They are the media.¬† Lest we forget, the New York Times and the Washington Post cheerfully directed their readers to Sarah Palin’s hacked e-mails.¬† Oh, they loved that, but e-mails which are now shown to be “authentic,” these people are trying to track down the whistle-blower.¬† They want to find out who this guy is, and they want to punish him.¬† I have a sample e-mail from a nutcase. Michael Mann is a huge global warmest scientist.¬† He’s almost as bad as John Holdren, who is Obama’s science czar — and Holdren, by the way, is involved in this.¬† Obama’s science czar has involvement with Phil Jones’ group, the CRU over at East Anglia University.
So here’s an e-mail, September 30th of this year from Michael Mann to Phil Jones, who runs the unit over there.
Let’s not get into the topic of hate mail.¬† I promise you I could fill your in-box with a very long list of vitriolic attacks, diatribes and threats that I have received. … It’s part of the attack of the corporate-funded attack machine, i.e. it’s a direct and highly intended outcome of a highly orchestrated, heavily-funded corporate attack campaign. We saw it over the summer with the health insurance industry trying to defeat Obama’s health plan, we’ll see it now as the US Senate moves on to focus on the cap-and-trade bill that passed Congress this summer. … It isn’t coincidental that the original McIntyre and McKitrick E&E paper with press release came out the day before the US senate was considering the McCain. Lieberman climate bill in ’05?
We’re doing the best we can to expose this.¬† I hope our real climate post goes up some ways to exposing the campaign and preemptively deal with the continued onslaught we can expect over the next month.¬† Thanks for alerting us to that detail of Koffman, et al, which I’d overlooked.¬† We’d already asked Darrell if he could compute a Yamal-less version of his series, but as you point out he’s really already done this! And Osborn and Briffa ’06 is also immune to this issue, as it eliminated any combination of up to 3 of the proxies and showed the result was essentially the same.
Now, it goes on to scientific data, but it clearly indicates that these people are purely political.¬† Corporate-funded attack machine?¬† As far as I’m concerned, most major corporations are on board with this crap!¬† General Electric is basing its future on all this garbage.¬† General Electric? Jeffrey Immelt is basing General Electric’s future on a hoax and people’s ability to be convinced that the hoax is real.¬† Corporate attack machine?¬† “Corporate attack machine,” that’s typical language of uber-leftists and statists and anti-capitalists, and that’s what’s the key about this.¬† But there are countless other e-mails that talk about hiding the data that disproves their theory, rigging the data to show that cooling is not happening when it is, and they admit it in their e-mails.
Bloggers in the UK are advising people over there that if they own stock in any alternative energy companies, start dumping them now because the conspiracy behind anthropogenic global warming has been exposed.¬† James Delingpole is actually suggesting if you own stock in alternative energy companies, dump it.
Now, look at me.¬† In the real world, a media existing in the real universe would be tracking down Algore wherever he is and be demanding an interview.¬† They would be demanding to ask him about the rigged science, the phony science and the hoax that he has built his post-political career on.¬† Actually, it’s not post-political.¬† It is purely political.¬† His post-elective career on.¬† The media would be hammering him — or should be — were they operating in the Universe of Reality.¬† He should be hounded until he grants interviews!¬† When he refuses to grant interviews, the media in the real world would be telling their audiences, their readers and their viewers that they have tracked Algore down, they know where he is. They would also say, “Now we know why Algore never lets the media in to one of his lectures or the showing of his movie or his slide show or whatever it is.”¬† He never lets the media in and he doesn’t take questions and he doesn’t do interviews — unless it’s at the Academy Awards or on Saturday Night Live, a comedy show.¬† Is this going to happen?¬† No!¬† Nowhere near the truth will the media get.¬† They rely entirely on their existence in the Universe of Lies.
James Delingpole, UK Telegraph:¬† “If you own any shares in alternative energy companies I should start dumping them NOW. The conspiracy behind the Anthropogenic Global Warming myth (aka AGW; aka ManBearPig) has been suddenly, brutally and quite deliciously exposed after a hacker broke into the computers at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (aka Hadley CRU) and released 61 megabites of confidential files onto the internet. When you read some of those files — including 1079 e-mails and 72 documents — you realize just why the boffins at Hadley CRU might have preferred to keep them confidential. As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be ‘the greatest in modern science.’ These alleged e-mails — supposedly exchanged by some of the most prominent scientists pushing AGW theory — suggest:¬† Conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organized resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more.
“One of the alleged e-mails has a gentle gloat over the death in 2004 of John L. Daly (one of the first climate change skeptics, founder of the Still Waiting For Greenhouse site), commenting: ‘In an odd way this is cheering news.’ But perhaps the most damaging revelations — the scientific equivalent of the Telegraph‚Äôs MPs‚Äô expenses scandal — are those concerning the way Warmist scientists may variously have manipulated or suppressed evidence in order to support their cause,” and they give samples of the e-mails, which we’ll link to this story at RushLimbaugh.com.¬† I don’t want to read all these e-mails.¬† Some of it does contain scientific data and would be boring to hear.¬† Just read them for yourselves and you will see exactly what’s being discussed here.
The Wall Street Journal: “Global Warming With the Lid Off — ‘The two MMs have been after the CRU station data for years. If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the UK, I think I’ll delete the file rather than send to anyone. … We also have a data protection act, which I will hide behind.’ So apparently wrote Phil Jones, director of the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU) and one of the world’s leading climate scientists, in a 2005 e-mail to ‘Mike.’ Judging by the e-mail thread, this refers to Michael Mann, director of the Pennsylvania State University’s Earth System Science Center.
“We found this nugget among the more than 3,000 emails and documents released last week after CRU’s servers were hacked and messages among some of the world’s most influential climatologists were published on the Internet.¬† The ‘two MMs’ are almost certainly Stephen McIntyre and Ross McKitrick, two Canadians who have devoted years to seeking the raw data and codes used in climate graphs and models, then fact-checking the published conclusions — a painstaking task that strikes us as a public and scientific service. Mr. Jones did not return requests for comment and the university said it could not confirm that all the e-mails were authentic, though it acknowledged its servers were hacked.¬† Yet even a partial review of the e-mails is highly illuminating.”
The Journal goes on to provide more information and excerpts from the e-mails.¬† They conclude thus:¬† “For the record, when we’ve asked Mr. Mann in the past about the charge that he and his colleagues suppress opposing views, he has said he ‘won’t dignify that question with a response.’ Regarding our most recent queries about the hacked emails, he says he ‘did not manipulate any data in any conceivable way,’ but he otherwise refuses to answer specific questions. For the record, too, our purpose isn’t to gainsay the probity of Mr. Mann’s work, much less his right to remain silent.
“However, we do now have hundreds of emails that give every appearance of testifying to concerted and coordinated efforts by leading climatologists to fit the data to their conclusions while attempting to silence and discredit their critics. In the department of inconvenient truths, this one surely deserves a closer look by the media, the US Congress and other investigative bodies.” It sure as hell does, and the media ought to be trying to find Algore this minute and to have him explain this.¬† That would be happening if… (interruption) Four Corners of Deceit, Snerdley. They’re all corrupt now. Media, academia, science, government, the Four Corners of Deceit.
The thing is, as I said yesterday, this doesn’t surprise me because I know who liberals are.¬† I know that liberalism is a lie.¬† I know that liberals have to lie about who they are, what they believe, and what their agenda is.¬† Look, what other movement needs a “wordsmith” to tell them how to say things which are not true to make people believe them, as in George Lakoff (rhymes with)?¬† Who the hell has people like that?¬† Who needs a wordsmith to tell people how to put together statements and write legislation that essentially has “yes” meaning “no”?¬† Who needs that?¬† Frauds need that! People filled with deceit, people who are trying to fool us every day need help in doing it from professionals.¬† Honesty is the last resort, and it is seldom used by anybody on the left.
