Michael Fumento: Where did all the warming go? – Washington Times

It’s the science scandal of the year. A thousand e-mails and 2,000 other documents were swiped from the server of Britain’s Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University and posted on the Web. Many were truly embarrassing to the writers, while others have been quoted out of context and falsely used as “proof” global warming is “a hoax.”

But in one e-mail a top “warmist” researcher does admit it’s a “travesty” that “we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment.” Further, “any consideration of geoengineering [is] quite hopeless as we will never be able to tell if it is successful or not!”

“Geoengineering” – as in the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill that passed the House and that the conservative Heritage Foundation estimates will lop $9.4 trillion off the economy? Geoengineering such as that to which President Obama hopes to commit us to at this week’s U.N. Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen? Yes, that kind of “geoengineering.”

And as it happens, the writer of that October 2009 e-mail – Kevin Trenberth, a lead author of the warmist bible, the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – report told Congress two years ago evidence for man-made warming is “unequivocal.” He claimed “the planet is running a ‘fever’ and the prognosis is that it is apt to get much worse.”
