Climate-Gate

SO....how interesting is it to continue to read about the 'scandal' of hidden/tampered with data that previously fueled all the Global Warming craziness.

i remember some time ago a local meteorologist stated that the GW bit was really a ruse to get the public all stirred up. He totally believed that if one would study weather patterns, one would see that the earth typically goes in cycles and that warming is part of the cycle, as is cold. And he did believe that we need to care for the earth but not in the way that was being fed to us by the drive-by media.

When i now read how scientists screwed up and hid true facts and tampered with evidence - so that it would prove what they wanted it to - first of all, i think the should be taken out back and shot-their 'data' has cost the general public millions of dollars, but i also think that the general public needs to be more careful and less gullible. Don't just drink the cool aid...do some research and figure things out for yourself.

Interesting idea, no?

I've been arguing the whole global warming thing with people around me since the stupidity began. I realize that people are looking for something to panic about. Remember when it was that the next ice age was coming, acid rain, the ozone layer, west nile virus (here in Ontario), killer bees, killer flus....on and on....Some people are getting rich off of panicing the general public!

We need to come up with a better scheme so that WE can get rich too. Hmm......
