And They Call Themselves “Journalists”

So you’re a “journalist” and you have the opportunity to interview Al Gore prior to the Copenhagen climate summit. The scandal surrounding the University of East Anglia’s CRU has been breaking for two weeks and its head, Phil Jones has stepped down.  Penn State University is investigating Michael Mann and his discredited “hockey stick”. It even appears that NASA may have been in on the scandal having spent 2 years avoiding FOIA requests. And all of it undermines the very foundation of the science of man-made global warming Gore has based his assertions upon.

Do you think, as journalists, that might be something you’d want to question the man who has almost made a religion out of the cause based on this data?

Yeah, I’d think so too. But apparently John Harris and Mike Allen of Politico didn’t think that was important enough to ask Mr. Gore. Unless, of course, they just didn’t include it in their “published excerpts”. But then I can’t think of a single reason, given the depth and breadth of the scandal, that they wouldn’t can you?

Well, they didn’t.

John Coleman tells you why.

  • Well John must be using telepathy, because there is no link, for him to explain “why” via the Internet.

  • You start to wonder if Obama has hung out with Tiger Woods a bit too much …   Gropenhagen: Prostitutes Offer Free Climate Summit Sex, if they show identification
    This may explain why Obama decided to go.  I wonder if Michelle knows about this ?
    I wonder if this explains Al Gore’s change in schedule ?

  • The head of the UN’s climate science body says claims that UK scientists manipulated data on global warming should be investigated. Dr Rajendra Pachauri, head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), said the matter could not be swept “under the carpet”.

    I guess you can’t subvert the investigation from the outside.

  • There’s another reason to not discredit Gore.

    At the heart of undermining everything Bush did and said for 8 years lead back to Bush supposedly stealing the election. 

    If Gore is discreditted, that goes to threatening the basis for having discreditted Bush.
