The Paper Lab
In science, hypotheses are proven through repeatable experiment: a reaction and a compound are
created by mixing specific chemicals in specific amounts, an electronic circuit generates a specific and controllable signal given
specific circuit topologies, a force applied to a specific mass produces a repeatable result. These experiments can be performed
over and over yielding the same result. In school, prospective scientists are required to do labwork to learn the techniques
of their field of study and the rigors of the scientific method. They are required to write a lab report detailing the steps
and data taken throughout the experiment. As in every field, there are weak students and cheaters. In science, the technique
of choice for these cheaters is the paper lab. The paper lab is a technique wherein the cheating student
does not execute the labwork or generate real data. Instead, the cheater works backwards from the result, using the theory,
to build a lab report that provides a plausible description of what they should have been doing: in essence, the description
of steps taken and data recorded are fabricated to support the theoretical known outcome. It is extremely difficult to expose
these cheaters unless the contrived intermediate data is clearly unrealistic. These unethical individuals often make it through
the system and into the workforce where they waste corporate resources and cause great damage to their employers and society
in general. With the exposure of hacked data and emails (see http://theblogprof.blogspot.com/2009/11/searchable-database-of-hacked-cru.html), it has become clear that the "scientists" at the Climate Research Unit (University of East Anglia, UK) of the
UN's International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have generated a paper lab on global warming: something long suspected
given their unwillingness to provide the data used to generate their lies. Perhaps the most frightening aspect of this multi-trillion
dollar fraud is the role played by the media.
The paper lab generated
by the global warming "scientists," led by CRU director Phil Jones, is one of the two primary
reasons that the industrialized economies are running massive deficits and debts; not to mention the devastating
effect this bogus work has had on the third world. The Warm Mongers have successfully used this paper lab to
support the false hypothesis that CO2 creates global warming. This fraudulent hypothesis has been used to legislate
the constraint of the development of American fossil fuel sources, the addition of unnecessary cost to the manufacturing
and the automobile industries, and the limitation on the expansion of power plants to meet energy needs. These
actions, taken together, have resulted in trillions of dollars in unnecessary and excessive costs over the last nine
years alone. It is quite appropriate that frauds like Jones and his co-conspirators are government employees (the
UN, NASA, Penn State, Colorado U., et. al.), giving a new meaning to the phrase, "political science."
Quite simply, Jones and his co-conspirators should be prosecuted to the full extent of
the law, and science left to real scientists: those who have to earn their keep every day in the private sector and not those
on a government sinecure.
Perhaps the most frightening part of this fraud is the role
the media played in it. The media pushed the conclusions of the global warming frauds. Supporting the economically crippling
and unnecessary political actions taken in support of this paper lab without considering and airing the arguments
of the skeptics. The same media labeled these skeptics kooks, flat earthers, and greedy capitalists; likening them
to deniers of the Holocaust. All without a rigorous debate over the hypothesis and an evaluation of the data set. At no time
did they explore legitimate climate change theories: plate tectonics, precession and nutation, the variations and anomalies
of the earth's electromagnetic field, or solar flare cycles. The traditional media has done true scientists and
environmentalists a disservice that will be difficult to recover from.
questions that the Warm Mongers always ask are: "Why would they fake this? What could they possibly gain?" Well,
just look at Al Gore; from $2M to over $100M in net worth in less than 9 years. Money and power change everything.
I am reminded of the story of the meeting of Western environmentalists with Eastern European
environmentalists after the fall of the USSR and communism. After hours of listening to the Western environmentalists tell
the newly free Eastern European environmentalists how they should act and what they should do to "fix" their environment,
one of the Eastern European environmentalists stood up and said, "Stop right there. What you are recommending is what
we have just been freed from. I know what you are. You are not environmentalists, you are watermelons: green on the outside
and red on the inside."
