The global warming camel got its nose under the tent with the deliberate and shameful doctoring of UN Climate Control documents by Mr. Ben Santer, a contemporary and understudy of the new Secretary of Energy, Dr. Steven Chu while both were employed by the US Government’s Lawrence Livermore Laboratories..
Information in the public domain clearly shows how the results of some 130 peer-reviewed studies on possible global warming and potential causes were discarded and replaced by Santer, the International Panel on Climate Control(IPCC )appointed lead author for the crucial Chapter 8 portion of the 1995 UN study.
When peer-reviewed papers by eminent climatologists clearly indicated that there was no evidence that one can link potential increases in greenhouse gasses to observed climate changes, Santer deleted the peer-reviewed results and wrote in the final UN report that the opposite was true.
Again, after world class climatologists had reported to the IPCC that there was no way to know if and when anthropogenic (manmade) effects on climate could be identified, Santer once again struck these studies out of the report and instead stated that there was a “discernable human influence on the global climate”.
Discovering this intellectual dishonesty, hundreds of world-class scientists who had originally participated in these studies have banded together to protest this disingenuous activity. Consequently, there is no such “consensus” on this issue as Al Gore has repeatedly claimed.
Rajendra Pachauri, the current head of the IPCC recently chastised the G8 nations for not pushing harder for global governance by way of the global warming issue. Pachauri shared the Nobel prize with Gore and considering the suspected duplicity of these laureates in their current activities , the Nobel committee should reconsider how such prestigious awards are made in the future.
We live in a world where “..who knew what and when did they know it” is a common metric for uncovering a suspicious paper trail . This question needs to be asked of Al Gore, Dr. Chu, Santer and Pachauri before what is clearly biased if not fully fabricated “scientific” data places the US and world economy at a critical tipping point.
