Lying, Cheating and Defrauding Taxpayers is ok, Announces Panel of MP’s

From the Telegraph:

“So, the results of the first Climategate enquiry are in. And guess what? It’s a word that begins with “W” and ending with “-hitewash.”

Over at Climateaudit, the mighty Steve McIntyre is furious. Among those he holds responsible is Nigel Lawson, for having given away territory he certainly had no right to cede on the subject of that now-infamous phrase “Mike’s Nature Trick.”

Here’s how the parliamentary committee exploited Lord Lawson’s ill-judged comments.

These [ UEA]interpretations of the colloquial meaning of “trick” have been accepted by even the staunchest of critics:

Lord Lawson of Blaby: The sinister thing is not the word ‘trick’. In their [UEA’s] own evidence they say that what they mean by ‘trick’ is the best way of doing something.
Chairman: You accept that?
Lord Lawson of Blaby: I accept that.

Lord Lawson’s error under pressure before a hostile and (with the exception of dissenting Labour MP Graham Stringer) quite extraordinarily obtuse audience is understandable. But you can see why McIntyre, a man who has done more than anyone to expose the fraudulence of the AGW industry, finds it so hard to forgive.

Damn it, he has written paper after blog post after essay explaining in precise and superbly informed detail exactly why this “trick” was a bad, naughty and very wrong thing – and not, as the UEA’s appallingly disingenuous submission preferred to gloss it, a colloquial phrase meaning “the best way of doing something.”

In short, it was a very dodgy, deeply unscientific way of deleting inconvenient data. It was also, entirely typical of the lying, cheating and fraud exposed in the Climategate emails. Let us not forget, we pay for scientists like Phil Jones with our taxes. How entirely typical that a body representing the most corrupt, money-grubbing taxpayer-funded roach pit of the lot – our Houses of Parliament – should have found it so very easy to exonerate the Climategate scientists of all wrongdoing.”

    Great Blog,

    Amazing how “intellectuals” can turn a word into the opposite meaning. Trick = method Black = white

    I just wonder if you are interested in my new blog.

    Have you ever started up a discussion by way of comment on their blog, with a Global Warming Supporter and found that as soon as you politely but authoritavely disagree with him or her, instead of giving you a reasoned, scientific answer, hopefully with relevant references, the owner of the blog simply spams your comments?

    I am finding this is a typical cop out by people who have this “faith” in the “Anthropogenic CO2 causes Global Warming” hypothesis.

    This is because they cannot answer your comment as it is very likely there is no answer compatible with their beliefs.
    Furthermore, because they have this misplaced “faith” it is understandably very difficult to admit that there are questions that need to be answered before we commit to cataclysmic economic measures to try and meet the IPCC emission reduction requirements.

    My new blog at gives you a chance to have your spammed comment published.

    Simply copy and paste all the details of the conversation into a comment on the site, in the same manner as previous examples that are there and I will make sure your full conversation is published. This of course means one needs a little fore thought when commenting.
    Also feel free to leave a comment about any page or the site in general. All such comments are posted unless they are obscene, name calling or abusive.
