The guys investigating the Climategate data are better scientists than the "Hockey Stick" crowd. I am talking about "Jeff Id" at "The Air Vent", Steve McIntyre at "Climate Audit", and Andrew Montfort at "Bishop Hill", among others.
In the last week, we have been given a lesson in just how bad Obama and his adminstration is at governing. Everything they touch goes to crap. The latest and greatest example is the attempted bombing on the NW airliner landing at Detroit. Before that, we saw the laughable "Health Care Reform". Before that it was giving money to their buddies and trashing the American automobile industry.
I had thought that we might see a splash and then the climate story would die out. Instead, the story continues to build. "if they have lost Megan McArdle, they are in big trouble". Megan has been a true believer. She is a liberal who likes to think of herself as a libertarian. I have been reading her work for about 4 years.
If anyone is interested, the emails and documents from the University of East Anglia were posted to a news group. This was one of the two hot stories of yesterday. The other being Andrew Beitbart's warning to Eric Holder and Obama that if Holder did not start an investigation of ACORN, Breitbart would hold onto the other videos (about more than just ACORN) and release them right before the election next year. The emails and documents from the University of East Anglia Climate Research Center were apparently obtained by Russian hackers ("Black Hats") and were posted on an FTP server for a short time yesterday. They showed up in other places later. In my case, I found them by searching for "Climate" with NewsRover. You can also find them with BinSearch by searching in the most popular groups using the search term "Climate".
For quite a long time now, the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded for strictly political reasons. Looking back at the list of Nobel laureates, that may have always been the case. Barack Obama obviously did not win the award due to any achievements. The award was due to who he is, not what he has done.
This is the link to Defamer with the video of Eric Dane, Rebecca Gayheart, and Kari Ann Peniche getting naked in bed with a bit of Ecstasy or some such thing. By the way, you can get the .flv file from a news group, which is where I got the file and the link. It was on alt.binaries.multimedia.nude.celebrities.
