The Polar Bear is Out of the Bag' on Global Warming with Hacked Emails From Climatologists Says Matt Harrison of the Prometheus Institute

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Someone hacked into the climate research unit at East Anglia University in England and divulged emails between scientists about their doubts about climate change. "They 'let the polar bear out of the bag' on their questionable tactics used in gathering and analyzing the data," says Matt Harrison, author of The American Evolution and founder of the Prometheus Institute a public policy think tank. www.ThePrometheusInstitute.org

"While the global warming science was already cloaked in uncertainty, the current controversy only further undermines the authority of the scientific 'consensus' that dominates the debate. While that hacking and distribution worldwide is illegal, this information is out there now being discussed and cannot be ignored," adds Harrison.

Here's a sample:

"I've just completed Mike's Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie, from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith's to hide the decline." (Phillip Jones, Director of the Climatic Research Unit, University of East Anglia in Norwich, from email November 1999)

"The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can't." (Kevin Trenberth, Head of the Climate Analysis Section, National Center for Atmospheric Research, from email October 2009)

"There's plenty more but the point is that we're about to turn our nation's economy and world's economy upside down based upon faulty and questionable science with the cap-and-trade bill now before Congress and measures to be debated in Copenhagen next week," says Harrison. "Furthermore, the bill is a foreboding thousand-page monster and is inscrutably complex. It calls for government to determine the total cost of pollution annually, spread that cost evenly amongst all business and industry in the form of credits or allowances, and those who pollute more will buy (trade) credits from firms that pollute less and don't need their full allowance."

Harrison contends that the bill not only fails to solve climate change, but "it's a thinly-disguised tax on young Americans who'll spend the rest their lives struggling under oppressive taxes thrust upon them by unscrupulously opportunistic scientists and their unthinking supporters.

"Yes, 'the polar bear is out of the bag' on global warming and Americans need to stop this bill from endangering the world's greatest economy."
