RUSH: By the way, folks, I want to give you a website to go to when you get a chance. It's called ClimateDepot.com. Something fascinating has happened, and I was first alerted to this today by our official climatologist, Dr. Roy Spencer. "A hacker has gotten into the computers at Hadley CRU." That is Britain's largest climate research institute. They're a huge proponent of global warming. The hacker "seems to have uncovered evidence of substantial fraud in reporting the 'evidence' on global warming; the unlawful destruction of records to cover up this fraud" to keep it away from Freedom of Information Act requests, for example. Deceit in the entire operation. And the best place to get all the detail is Marc Morano, our former "man in Washington" on my TV show, who runs ClimateDepot.com. All the details are there. It's a great place to keep up on the global warming debate. He's probably single-handedly, in a civilian sense, the guy (other than me, of course) doing a better job of ringing the bells alarming people of what's going on here.
But apparently they got 62 megabytes of e-mails from this computer, and it looks bad. And it looks like... You know, you see something like this and you say, "Okay, we gotta make sure this is not a hoax." Dr. Spencer looked at this. He said, "This is too, too, too elaborate to be a hoax," in his estimation. I don't know if the jury's still out on that, but more and more people are picking up on this. I've instinctively known this from the get-go, from 20 years ago! The whole thing is made up, and the reason I know it is because liberals are behind it! When they're pushing something, folks, it's always bogus. It's never what they say it is. There's always a hidden reason behind the objective. The objective, stated objective, is just designed to get you feeling guilty, responsible, frightened, scared -- and your kids as well. But it looks like substantial fraud -- a lot of evidence of substantial fraud -- in reporting the "evidence" on global warming.
Clarice Feldman at the AmericanThinker.com has posted on this, and she's got a sample of the purportedly hacked materials here. There are 1,079 e-mails and 72 documents, and they are available online. The hackers put 'em up.
"Dear Ray, Mike, and Malcolm: Once Tim's got a diagram here we'll send that either later today or first thing tomorrow. I've just completed Mike's Nature trick of adding in the real temperatures to each series for the last 20 years (ie, from 1981 onwards) and from the 1961 for Keith's to hide the decline [in temperature]."
To hide the decline in temperature!
"Mike's series got the annual land and marine values while the other two got April-Sept for NH land N of 20N. The latter two are real for 1999, while the estimate for 1999 for NH combined is" blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
Anyway, there are other examples of e-mails. Thomas Lifson adds here, "One interesting hacked e-mail childishly insults American Thinker, by calling [them] the 'American Stinker'." So these people are clearly aware of the people out there who are the so-called deniers. But if this is the real thing, it could be huge. You know, and I must claim that I have saved one soul on this: The lovely and dear Rachel sitting across the glass from me, who is transcribing our calls today. She was an early believer in Algore's movie and book -- and, it's not her fault. I mean, the way this stuff has been positioned, who doesn't want to save the planet? I mean, who wants the planet to be burned up? Who wants the environment to go so bad that we're all going to die? Who wants the polar bears drowning? Nobody wants that, and this is the way the left comes and grabs your heartstrings in order to separate you from your money while they take your soul. And Rachel no longer believes. You don't, do you? (interruption) She no longer believes the gunk. But she at one time was a prisoner of this stuff, and there are a lot of people who are. So it will be interesting to watch this story get played out and disseminated. But if it's true, it is huge.
RUSH: A quick question before we grab the next call. Okay, we've got pretty good evidence today... By the way, thank you for shutting down Marc Morano's website, ClimateDepot.com. We love doing that. I love shutting down people's websites. It doesn't last long, but a lot of people flooded his server at ClimateDepot.com. They've hacked into some major global warming scientist's computer and they've found e-mail evidence -- over a thousand e-mails -- that the science is ginned up; that people are making it up, doctoring numbers and so forth. Now, I love to study human nature. The dead giveaway that the left is lying about global warming is before us today. There has been solid scientific evidence, irrefutable, that global warming has come to a halt. Even the global warming guys admit it. We had a story earlier this week, "My God, what happened? The world is not getting warmer? Oh, our models! We're stumped." Remember that story during the week? It might have been yesterday.
Now, try to isolate the reason for that. Lack of sunspots, solar cooling, is probably the most likely explanation. They're looking at ocean currents. We have pictures. The lack of sunspots is not a theory. There aren't any sunspots and that's potentially bad news. Now normal people with no agenda who have been warning us of the dire consequences to animal life, plant life, plant and scum and everything else from global warming -- "We're all going to perish! We're going to die! Cuba is gonna be underwater and so is Denver. The sea levels are going to rise. The polar bears are going to become so hot that they're going to come shed themselves in front of us and attack us for doing this to them. It's going to be utter disaster central!" -- you would think they'd be happy.
Normal people without an agenda would be relieved to discover this decline in temperatures. After all the theories and the computer models predicting global warming, we now have solid scientific evidence that temperature readings here on earth are falling -- or holding steady, at least. A normal person wouldn't lash out. A normal person wouldn't try to bury the evidence. A normal person would not exploit children to advance what is now known to be a lie. We have comforting evidence that for some strange reason has made statists uncomfortable. That's how we know they're liars with fixed political agendas. Now they actually want this destruction. They want it! They want the polar bears to die! (crying) 'Cause now they're not going to die and we're not going to die, and sea levels are not going to rise. You would think they would be happy. But they are not.
