Why all the ruse?

In response to Pamela Gardners letter ‘Global warming is real’ published in the Lakes District News edition of Nov. 23, 2011.

First off I would like to say that the evidence in Professor Mueller’s study does show an extended warming period for much of the last century.

What the report does not show, is the last 10 years of the study, in which the climate was more or less static and even showed a cooling trend, as reported by Mueller’s colleague Professor Judith Curry.

Professor Curry criticized Professor Mueller for trying to hide the decline.

She also criticized him for going public before the research had been peer reviewed.

Her story unfortunately isn’t getting as much attention at Professor Mueller’s.

In the meantime, no evidence has surfaced that suggests that global climate change is man made.

Combine that with the leaked emails from these scientists that actually echo some of the concerns of the skeptics.

Such as how the models fail to include factors such as sun spot cycles, volcanic activity and global surface water temperature.

So why all the ruse?

Maybe to enforce the need for a carbon tax?

Which lets face it is a tax on life and a tax on the lifestyle that we’ve been forced to adapt to in this global economy.
