Progressive Democrats in the Senate organized an all night Global Warmingathon in an effort to push the fictional concept of Climate Change.
Unfortunately for them, the Republican Senator from Oklahoma, James Inhofe, defeated their plans utilizing only one word: Climategate. (4:00-6:00)
(In 2009) I asked Lisa Jackson, when you have the Endangerment Finding it has to be based on some type of science. What science are you going to use? She said mostly the IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. So that’s the kind of science they have been using for a long period of time.
But, ironically, the timing couldn’t be better. It wasn’t a matter of weeks after that, it was a matter of hours after that, that Climategate was exposed. Climategate all started with East Anglia University’s Climate Research Unit, one of the main Universities that helps put together information about Global Warming for the IPCC. There it was disclosed that the IPCC was systematically distorting the facts, cooking the science of Global Warming to either cover up data that didn’t tell the story they wanted everyone to hear and exaggerated the impacts of the changing climate to help drive people, out of fear, into action.
