The degree to which those in official climate science are incapable is illustrated by the reaction. The answer is in the reaction the whitewash has triggered; an orchestrated attack on the skeptics, those who dare to perform science by proving the hypothesis wrong, to ask questions or demand debate. Why? The obvious answer is because the public was increasingly skeptical as evidence accumulated that the hypothesis was wrong.
Two consecutive lawsuits filed against me have precluded my working on articles for the website. Read on for details about the case and my legal defence fund.
Meant to ensure the integrity and objectivity of scientific studies, the peer review process has been repeatedly perverted by academic and business interests to prevent information that would disrupt existing paradigms from reaching public attention. While the public is aware that peer review exists, its potential for abuse (illustrated by the ClimateGate scandal) is rarely discussed openly or candidly. Dr. Tim Ball and author Gavin Menzies join <a href="http://itsrainmakingtime.com" target="_blank"><em>It's Rainmaking Time!™</em></a> host Kim Greenhouse to discuss the problems of peer review in detail.
“It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the slightest doubt that this is so should read the Climategate documents, which lay it bare. I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that word revulsion a definition of the word scientist. So what has the APS, as an organization done in the face of this challenge? It has accepted the corruption as the norm, and gone along with it.”
~Harold Lewis, Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of California, in his resignation letter to the American Physical Society (APS)
Files released either by a hacker or a whistleblower from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia contain so much material that will take some time to put it all in context. However, enough is already known to underscore their explosive nature.
