Obama Science Officials Defend Warming Research

Top White House science officials defended the validity of global warming research against repeated Republican attacks Wednesday that cited leaked e-mails from some climate researchers.

The e-mails from a British university's climate center were obtained by computer hackers and released last month. Climate change skeptics contend the messages reveal that researchers manipulated and suppressed data and stifled dissent.

At a Capitol Hill hearing, the president's science adviser and the chief of the agency in charge of climate research said the e-mails did nothing to undermine scientific consensus on climate change.

Some Republicans said they showed a "culture of corruption" among scientists.

    What about all those hurricanes caused by global warming the past two years? I mean...wait, hmmm, sorry, reminants of an "Inconvienent Lie" by Al Gore. Anyone seen Al, he is supposed to be at the summit....he must be off someplace else telling lies about weather.

    132 countries showed up for this summit on global warming. my question is how did they get there? did they use battery operated airplanes or solar powered airplanes. 132 countries just contributed to global warming. this whole thing is a scam. of course you have Barlow defending anything that Obama says is true. The recent snowstorm across the country must have come from global warming right? the earth has been going through this process since God created it, all of it is natural occurrances, not caused by man. 2012 cant come soon enough.

    The scam goes on when the liberals now control the EPA and take the responsibility from our houses. So, we have a sub Congress and Senate that don't answer for you and me? Sounds like Communism to me. Some of you must remember that the EPA passes laws based on theory, like second hand smoke.....this cost business owners lots of money, not only in NC but it other states. But, this is for their own good. Well, now EPA is now controlling over global warming and O2 emissions......hmmmmmmmm, whats this going to cost? Break out you wallets, go to the unemployment office, this one will cost everybody, rich or poor.

    Hey Barlow, Where were all these life saving libs when species past fell to changes in the environment? They believe so fiercly in Darwin and his natural selection theory yet they think the part about "selected out" can not be allowed to happen. You really think you have that kind of power in the grand scheme? HA!!! Evolution is a crock. You can not prove where any one species turned into another. Species stay what they are otherwise proof would be abundant in the fossil record.

    For those interrested since I didn't find the story on Al Gore cancelling his trip to Copenhagen for the "Climate Forum"..... http://michellemalkin.com/2009/12/03/the-power-of-climategate-al-gore-forced-to-sacrifice-copenhagen-cash-cow/

    Barlow and Lib, the whole myth you are trying to support, is no more than a scam. You can choose to believe the sky is red, when the facts show its blue. You have two poles, north pole and south pole. History shows the earth alters on its axis shifting ice from the north pole to the south pole, as it is happening "now". There is not global warming by man or any other reason. We have been cooling for 11 years. Go to NOAA and look up the statistics, if they haven't been altered now. Lib, that deal on the bridge is really good, you could set up a toll booth to get a return on your investment.

    Barlow, You're exactly right. I also read about the village in Alaska. I wonder if OSOC and others will sing a different tune when it's the Outer Banks that are facing destruction.

    There is no manmade global climate threat. The basis for the Kyoto and Copenhagen Accords were the same IPCC and SPM reports that have now been exposed as containing completely falsified, manipulated data and science. It is nothing more than an attempt on a global scale to redistribute wealth worldwide...the collective theory used by Marxism. Hey...the facts are there showing the falsification, manipulation, and blatant lies of the "Climate" movement. Up to each to decide. I choose to accept the factual and not fabricated truth.

    Is anyone really suprised that the corruption of the environmentalist went this far? This has been a scheme from the beginning involving Al Gore. As long as this scam can be carried out, he makes money. Did anyone think that Al Gore would tell the truth? Well, NBC is trying to sugar coat a story that broke last week on Fox. Yep, that dreaded Fox news. With NBC being bought by Comcast, lets hope the swing to telling the truth and stop protecting the left. I have told many of you in past posts, global warming is a myth, not caused by man, if it ever was and further, we have not had it in 11 years. So, you can pay money for a lie, its in the cap and trade bill in the senate, or you can fight for your freedom. If you think Obamas soldiers on global warming don't have a personal gain in this, I have a bridge I will sell you that goes over the Tar River......
