Climategate e-mails sweep America, may scuttle Barack Obama's Cap and Trade laws


By Gerald Warner Politics Last updated: November 26th, 2009


Just a few considerations in addition to previous remarks about the explosion

of the East Anglia Climategate e-mails in America. The reaction is growing

exponentially there. Fox News, Barack Obama’s Nemesis, is now on the case,

trampling all over Al Gore’s organic vegetable patch and breaking the White

House windows. It has extracted some of the juiciest quotes from the e-mails

and displayed them on-screen, with commentaries. Joe Public, coast-to-coast,

now knows, thanks to the clowns at East Anglia’s CRU, just how royally he has been screwed.



Senator James Inhofe’s Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works

has written to all the relevant US Government agencies, acquainting them

with the nature of the e-mails. But the real car crash for Obama is on

Capitol Hill where it is now confidently believed his Cap and Trade

climate legislation is toast. It was always problematic; but with a growing

awakening to the scale of the scientific imposture sweeping the world,

as far as the Antipodes, the clever money is on Cap and Trade laws failing

to pass, with many legislators sceptical and the mid-term elections looming

ever closer.


At the more domestic level, the proposed ban on incandescent light bulbs,

so supinely accepted in this servile state of Britain, is now provoking a

huge backlash in America. US citizens do not like the government coming

into their houses and putting their lights out. Voters may not understand

the cut and thrust of climate debate at the technical level, but they know

when the Man from Washington has crossed their threshold uninvited.


The term that Fox News is now applying to the Climategate e-mails is

“game-changer”. For the first time, Anthropogenic Global Warming cranks

are on the defensive, losing their cool and uttering desperate mantras

such as “You can be sceptical, not denial.” Gee, thanks, guys. In fact

we shall be whatever we want to be, without asking your permission.


At this rate, Copenhagen is going to turn into a comedy convention with

the real world laughing at these liars. Now is the time to mount massive

resistance to the petty tyrants and hit them where it hurts – in the wallet.

Further down the line there may be, in many countries, a question of criminal

prosecution of anybody who has falsified data to secure funds and impose

potentially disastrous fiscal restraints on the world in deference to a

massive hoax. It’s a new world out there, Al, and, as you may have noticed,

the climate is very cold indeed.
