The Climate Gate scandal has spread from England to New Zealand, and possibly into NASA (who, curiously, don’t want to release their raw data for review). It’s even reached the White House – John Holdren, Obama’s Science Advisor, may be implicated in some of this. (Side note: Among other things, he believes in government control of human breeding.)
Major Point: these “scientists” would not have needed to alter their data if that data supported their thesis. The very fact that they felt the need to alter their data and hide the evidence is proof that in their minds, the evidence is not there to support man-made global warming.
So the scientists in charge of providing the data to back up the global warming thesis clearly do not believe they have the evidence to support it.
This is so important to understand that I’ve repeated myself. Sorry.
