Global Warming Fascism: A Roundup

ClimateGate, much in the news recently, is a scandal that erupted when a bunch of e-mails from a British climate center were leaked, showing scientists literally conspiring to cook data to support the idea of global warming, conspiring to withhold data from critical scrutiny, and to prevent the publication of views they didn’t like.

While it has made a big splash only recently, it is merely an outcropping of something that has been around for years.

A climate “concensus” in the political and scientific communities has taken on the character of a relgious dogma, with heretics being fired, banished, threatened or shunned.

A web page called Stifling Decent (pun intended), by Roger King, has the details. They are hair-raising.

Well, I guess if it's on some random right-winger's blog, it must be true! Of course, we wouldn't expect a political science professor to messy his hands actually engaging in the details of this debate. Better to just ignore dissenting views about what these emails do and do not show, and link to some blog that confirms your own biases.

There is little doubt what the e-mails show.

You can argue that this is scientific misconduct in a good cause, but it's hard to deny that it's scientific misconduct.
