Climategate U-turn as scientist at centre of row admits: There has been no global warming since 1995

* Data for vital 'hockey stick graph' has gone missing
* There has been no global warming since 1995
* Warming periods have happened before - but NOT due to man-made changes


Congenital Climate Abnormalities

Just exactly what unusual, unexpected temperature anomaly are we trying to explain? The claim is made over and over that humans are having an effect on the climate. But where is the evidence that there is anything that even needs explanation? Where is the abnormal phenomenon? What is it that we are trying to make sense of, what is the unusual occurrence that requires a novel scientific explanation?

Seek and ye shall find :)

The Paul Craig Roberts interview was weird, in that he seemed urgent, but did not tell us where to access this list, or even when Dennis Blair made this statement to the Intelligence Committee. Does anyone have more specific information? As an American abroad, I'd love to have a look at the list.

From businessman's 3:31 PM post:

Paul Craig Roberts reports that our Nation has just recently revealed itself -- via US head of National Intelligence Dennis Blair addressing an apathetic Congress -- to in fact be a police state. Perhaps more info to tie in with that recorded by the late Howard Zinn in his People's History of the United States, to remind us that our good ol' US of A has always, along with its truly commendable achievements, also been a tyranny dressed up in the garb of a Democratic-Republic?
