Billions of taxpayers dollars are wasted on politically motivated climate science, most of it on buying and running computers incapable of modeling global climate. They're incorrectly programmed so a CO2 increase causes a temperature increase to fulfill the saying "Garbage In, Garbage Out" (GIGO).

The bulwark claim of the anthropogenic global warm (AGW) hypothesis and the objective of the stick are that current global annual average temperatures are the warmest ever. This meant the upturn of the blade in the 20th century was only relevant if it was higher and steeper than any previous record.
Control of the science and content of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Reports was planned from before it was officially formed in 1988. Exposure of manipulation to achieve desired results also began early.
Growth of bureaucracies is a hallmark of totalitarianism. As Mary McCarthy said, “Bureaucracy, the rule of no one, has become the modern form of despotism.” The power behind Barack Obama doesn’t care if he is a one-term President. Total government control is a far more important agenda than any individual political career.
In the battle for proper climate science free from politics, there are two levels at which bureaucracy is a modern form of despotism. In most countries it is in departments of meteorology, weather, climate or environment. At the global level, it is in the United Nations. Regardless of location, it is essentially unaccountable and represents the enemy within.
An acquaintance said I must feel vindicated now that the extent of the corruption in climate science is exposed. The answer is no, because I knew all along there would be no pleasure in “I told you so”. The damage done to climate science, science, and environmentalism is serious.
A small group of scientists – mostly associated with the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia – have consciously withheld data and methods to place global progress, development, economies and peoples lives in jeopardy. Lord Monckton calls it a global fraud. It is that, but much more – and raises the question of accountability.
Most people know Benjamin Disraeli’s comment, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies, and statistics”, but few understand how application of statistics affected our lives in the 20th century. We sense it when everything sort of fits everyone, but doesn’t precisely fit anyone.
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.
