Get ready for more greenwash...

As old favourite Roger Harrabin reports:

The second of three reviews into hacked climate e-mails from the University of East Anglia (UEA) is set to be released later.

It has examined scientific papers published over 20 years by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the heart of the e-mail controversy.

In fairness, the BBC has reported the issues people have with Lord Oxburgh's interests. But still, notice how Harrabin reports how the mails were "hacked" - were they? I thought that hadn't been confirmed yet...

However, if the panel follows the recent House of Commons Science and Technology Committee report into the e-mails it will conclude that the scientists involved had no intention to deceive.

Odds that they'll follow the Committee report?

Odds that once this review is over, we'll be told again "the science is now decided"?

Fuck sake.

Update: Well, what a fucking surprise.

This one claims we going to have more cold winters:

But very carefully adds that it is only a local effect, and that things are still hotting up.

So while we are freezing our tits off over the coming years, taxes on fuel will carry on rising because of so called global warning.

Sadly even the upcoming election won't give us sceptics a voice.

They lied, they got caught, but just like the shit bag polititions that put them up to it there will be no comeback for them.
What a fucking suprise.
