True Lies and false information

It's no wonder some people are taken in by the AGW hoax. The amount of lies and spin that are out there.  As Ian Plimer writes in his new book "How To Get Expelled From School: "If the science of human induced global warming is so strong then why is it necessary for the climate industry to engage in fraud, exaggeration, obfuscation, personal attacks, spin and the demonising of dissent?"

For instance, to my knowledge the ABC have not reported anything about the leak of the "Climategate"  e-mails. E-mails that have shown that the leading alarmist scientists have lied and cheated and tried to suppress papers that go against their falsified hypothesis.

But of course the ABC went against their chairman Maurice Newman. Newman said that they should be even-handed on reporting of the global warming debate (link) but the ABC journalists should be called activists because they revolted and went against the ABC's charter and their chairman's wishes.

Mr Newman was criticised by Christopher Warren, the Federal Secretary of the Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance in a letter the next day:
I was concerned to read yesterday the remarks made by ABC chairman, Maurice Newman, to a gathering of journalists, program-makers and management on Wednesday.
Since his speech I have been contacted by a number of Media Alliance members from the ABC’s news and current affairs team who have interpreted Mr Newman’s remarks as an attempt to influence the ABC’s line on climate change.

Seth Borenstein is also an activist journalist from Associated Press. He has been called out by Newsbusters here and by Steve Goddard here


WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal officials say the Arctic region has changed dramatically in the past five years — for the worse.
It’s melting at a near record pace, and it’s darkening and absorbing too much of the sun’s heat.

Steve writes:
Right. NSIDC reported in their last Arctic Sea Ice News that autumn  freeze up was 40% faster than normal. It is pitch black in the Arctic, and ice extent is essentially identical to 1996.
The Arctic acts as Earth’s refrigerator, cooling the planet. What’s happening, scientists said, is like someone pushing the fridge’s thermostat much too high.
