    Because the political left which is in bed with the environmental lobby( part of their voting base) has turned climate study into a political issue.
    It is a political issue because the first thing that came of it was a UN supported 'carbon tax'.
    Then we had (knee) Cap and (tax) Trade. Obama and his pie in the sky "green energy" nonsense and his unceasing need to ram his version of conservation down our throats.
    If you do not think the alleged global warming issue will not become a part of Obama's upcoming fall campaign strategy, you're in la la land.

    Of course those on the left would consider the release of the emails the crime. The fact that the data in the study was deliberately skewed for political reasons does not matter to you people.
    What a bunch of bullshit.

    Do you live in an energy consuming building? drive a car? Use mass transit? Have pain on your walls? Own anything made with synthetic fibers or plastics?
    If you answered yes to any or all of these items, SHUT THE FUCK UP...

    Amen to that. Well, thanks to their own perfidy, the rascals and their corrupt backers at the U.N have been exposed for what they are, and they have lost credibility in the only place that really matters; the court of American public opinion. Read it and weep, you Chicken Littles,; you can still squawk, but only your Leftist tools care. Your little "movement" is finished, along with the global socialist agenda it was intended to foist upon the developed world. Now take your snake oil and depart, you scheming swindlers and scientific prostitutes; we ain't buying anymore! Begone, ye frauds, (and please, take your squeaking little lemmings off the cliff with you into oblivion)!

    Because every -read: every- "solution" to Goebbles warming is political....IOW, all the "solutions" involve a few elite deciding what's best for the whole world, with no more expertise on anything than being able to get elected or appointed, and dictating to the proles how to go about living their lives.

    Wrong. McIntyre and McKitrick have analyzed all of them and shown they all suffer from the same methodological errors, not to mention outright fraud. For one thing, all of these "studies" include the Bristle-cone pine data which have been shown do be false proxies. They also all use some variation of the component analysis abracadabra which McIntyre demonstrated will produce a hockey stick even with random noise for data.

    You can find a detailed analysis of each one here:

    Hockey Stick Studies « Climate Audit


    Uh,wrong. McIntyre and McKitrick never "confirmed" the Hockey Stick graph. In fact, they thoroughly discredited it, including the MNH98 version of it.

    Here is the abstract on their paper about MBH98:

    Don't be an idiot we all contribute. What you forgot to ask is what am I doing to cut back on my foot print?

    Try walking a whole lot and getting on that fun bicycle of which I have a few. It's all about reducing our impacts.

    When driving we spend the lions share of our time in 4 cylinder 5 speed Toyota pick up trucks.

    And we burn a 97% HVAC system which burns very clean and saves a ton of dollars = very green thinking.

    And we have replaced most all of our windows and are they cool = again saving some very green bucks.

    And have converted most of our light systems to energy star. Love it.

    Saves those green backs which is part of the clean energy concept.

    I couldn't care less about cutting back on my "footprint." I would sooner waste time searching for big foot or an honest liberal.

    Really? That's not what the regulators say. BTW did you know the company is billions in debt and on the verge of collapse? They are really hoping to supply the pipe for the Keystone pipeline. That will save them, otherwise they go tits up and you poor sods are out on your bums.
