    Might be fun to ask a lib if they know what Climate Gate is.

    An article from the Toronto Sun. 26th November 2009, 8:22am

    "If you're wondering how the robot-like march of the world's politicians towards Copenhagen can possibly continue in the face of the scientific scandal dubbed "climategate," it's because Big Government, Big Business and Big Green don't give a s*** about "the science."

    They never have.

    What "climategate" suggests is many of the world's leading climate scientists didn't either. Apparently they stifled their own doubts about recent global cooling not explained by their computer models, manipulated data, plotted ways to avoid releasing it under freedom of information laws and attacked fellow scientists and scientific journals for publishing even peer-reviewed literature of which they did not approve.

    Now they and their media shills -- who sneered that all who questioned their phony "consensus" were despicable "deniers," the moral equivalent of those who deny the Holocaust -- are the ones in denial about the enormity of the scandal enveloping them.

    So they desperately try to portray it as the routine "messy" business of science, lamely insisting, "nothing to see here folks, move along."

    Before the Internet -- which has given ordinary people a way to fight back against the received wisdom of so-called "wise elites" -- they might have gotten away with it.

    But not now, as knowledgeable climate bloggers are advancing the story and forcing the co-opted mainstream media to cover a scandal most would rather ignore.

    The problem, however, is those who hijacked science to predict a looming Armageddon unless we do exactly as they say, have already done their damage.

    The moment they convinced politicians the way to avert the End of Days was to put a price on emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the unholy alliance of Big Government, Big Business and Big Green was forged.

    Big Government wants more of your taxes. Big Business wants more of your income. Big Green wants you and your children to bow down to its agenda of enforced austerity.

    What about saving the planet, you ask? This was never about saving the planet. This is about money and power. Your money. Their power.

    If it was about saving the planet, "cap-and-trade" (a.k.a. cap-and-tax) -- how Big Government, Big Business and Big Green ludicrously pretend we will "fight" global warming and "save the planet" -- would have been consigned to the dust bin of history because it doesn't work. We know it doesn't work because Europe's five-year-old cap-and-trade market -- the Emissions Trading Scheme -- has done nothing to make the world cooler.

    All it's done is make hedge fund managers, speculators and Big Energy giddy with windfall profits, while making everyone else poorer by driving up the cost of energy, and thus of most goods and services, which need energy to be lighted, heated, cooled, grown, constructed, manufactured, produced and transported.

    Readers often ask how they can fight back. First, forget about asking when the warmists will see reason. They won't.

    Instead, send a message to Prime Minister Stephen Harper by e-mail (pm@pm.gc.ca), fax (1-613-941-6900) or call toll-free (1-866-599-4999) and ask to be put through to the Office of the Prime Minister.

    Do the same for Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff by e-mail, (ignatm@parl.gc.ca). fax, (1-613-947-0310), or call-toll free (1-866-599-4999) and ask to be put through to the Liberal Leader's Office.

    Tell them you want no part of the madness in Copenhagen.

    Blow their phones off the hook."

    Most of the worlds "news organizations" have at least mentioned "climategate" and many have done a good bit more. Only in the U.S. has the so-called mainstream (the "all obama news" media) simply pretended it does not even exist. Thank god for Fox News and the internet. Otherwise, Americans would not even know it happened.

    Canadians may be smarter than us but they're all afraid of the dark. At least that's what I've heard.

    Canadians are smarter than us. What chance do we, The People, have in slowing down O'Bama, Gore, et al? What a shame, for what used to be a great Country. The slippery slope is getting steeper. GOD save America. Shoot often while we can, Bob

    It didn't take a rocket scientist to know that global warming was a farce. The Earth has been going through temperature cycles since the time of its creation.

    Besides, how could anyone take seriously anything that Al Gore says? You know, he invented the internet. Lol.

    So was Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize fraudulently obtained?

    Bet no one wants to touch THAT with a ten foot pole.
