Why Are Climategate Charlatans Still Free? By Alan Caruba
In an excellent column, Alan Caruba has put very succinctly what many of us has thought of Climategate and the follow-up whitewash hearings.
If I had engaged in activities that involved fleecing the governments of the United States and the United Kingdom of billions in public funds in the name of “climate research”, and it was found that I had manipulated the data to advance the “global warming” hoax, wouldn’t I be facing charges of fraud?
Or if the universities for which I worked had benefited from receiving those public funds had conducted hearings that exonerated me, wouldn’t those institutions be considered accessories to the alleged crime?
Alan mentions whitewashes on both sides of the Atlantic, the US EPA's declaration that CO2 is pollution, Al Gore lying under oath....
Alan finishes: " There is no reason why those who provided the data underwriting the fraud of Climategate should not face justice. That may not occur, but the truth will be a form of justice despite the loss and waste of billions in both the United States and the United Kingdom."
Australia has wasted millions as well. We have a Department of Climate Change sitting twiddling their thumbs awaiting legislation to give themselves legitimacy and some work to perform.
