Y2Kyoto: This Is Awkward

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP)

A federal wildlife biologist whose observation in 2004 of presumably drowned polar bears in the Arctic helped to galvanize the global warming movement has been placed on administrative leave and is being investigated for scientific misconduct, possibly over the veracity of that article.

And then there's that problem with the sheep...

When is "The Fruit Fly Pimp" David Suzuki going to be charged with fraud. At the very least the CBC should have their tax dollars reduced by the amount they siphon off to Suzuki for endless reruns of his fake documentaries. Considering that the CBC is on the Board of Directors of the Suzuki Foundation. A clear conflict of interest.

Good, it is about time some of the Gore/Suzuki crowd were investigated for their duplicity.

and then there's that problem with the sheeple who are determined to believe in "global warming" no matter what untruths get uncovered...they are so invested in it emotionally it has become a religion and a rallying call to them.

When 'Greenland' melts and Britain freezes over.

I will/might believe in Man Made Warming-
Climate Change-
Global Warming-
Global Cooling-
or as Bambie calls it:

Global Climate Disruptions.


You know,
?when you think about it,
that fundamentalist Unman/Inman got closer when he charged well endowed women with wearing itsy bitty, teeny weenie, yellow polka dot bikinis,
causing earthquakes, erupting volcanoes,
and tsunamis.

That would have to leave a mark on the earths environment or nuke plants..

Wanna share some of those drugs?

How exactly do you "peer review" an observational study? You would think that if you're routinely flying over the arctic and counting wildlife, you would have a camera with you. Where are the pictures of the drowned bears? Otherwise we have only his word that he saw them - how do you peer review that?

" the investigation is being done by criminal investigators with no scientific background, even though the case is an administrative matter."

Said Jeff Ruch, executive crimin... er uh director of Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility.

Found a roadkill skunk in front of my house... Clearly global warming altered it's behavior contributing to it's death, therefore this is proof of global warming. Logical?

hey I can take pictures if you don't believe me!

Whatever happened to that issue where it was revealed that SooZooki took scads of dough from US interests to slander BC salmon farming so Alaska fishermen (not "fishers") could grab more of the market?

over at Drudge there is an Yahoo article on the "heat loss" into space as recorded by NSA's terra satilite, and it shows that the "shill's" models are all wrong

We didn't need the exposure of this wonky scientist to tell us this. The Inuit have been saying for years that the polar bear population has been increasing, not decreasing.

What TimR said.

Well, in the case of this polar bear study, "peer reviewed" meant "we gazed at it from a distance". I know, it's hard to bear...

A pox on the Sierra Club.
There the ones who want most of the human race dead.
Another group of Earth worshippers in disguise.

What amazes me are two things. 1) How corrupt and dishonest has been the "scientific process" that supports a political ideology 2) How willingly have scientists gone along with this corruption to get funding ... OK 3) how the political class has rallied around this fraud.

Perhaps the last surprise shouldn't be, as the political class is always looking for a means to control.

Joey, Suzuki has just this week been shilling for Alaskan caught Pacific Cod on the Chorus Radio Network.

He is unashamedly working against Canadian interests, which is even more reason for the CRA to strip his foundation of charitable status, just like the Liberals under Chretien did to the Suzuki Foundations competitor Greenpeace some years ago.

Not hard to understand why so many "experts" cling to the bogus GW nonsense. The funding stops as soon as they declare it was all a big mistake. Not to mention they would have to find a real job.
Another example is taxing carbon. Every politicians dream. A tax on nothing. Does anyone honestly believe they will admit they were wrong and drop this travesty. They know full well if you tell a lie often enough it will become the truth.

But, but, but aren't the Polar Bears swimming the 7 Seas looking for ice??? Aren't they? Or is that just the stupid ones? God help the penguins when they arrive at the south pole.

Run David Run; Yes Suzookie, you need to run, you are a fraud and have clearly helped to defraud countless old ladies and children to donate to your house of Snake Oil the Suzookie foundation, foundation made of jello. SCAM SCAM SCAM, you should be so ashamed, my poor old aunt in New Westminster can hardly keep her house, but she donated to you!

Posted by: bartinsky at July 29, 2011 2:05 AM

That reminds me, remember the guy said all the increased polar ice coverage was rotten ice? Has anybody gone up there to check?
