Millions of people including children were driven to fear about the world coming to an end. Progress to deal with real problems and improve economies were set back years because of wrong policies. Credibility of science was seriously undermined.

Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive!– Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832)
Question; How and why can a year be claimed as the warmest on record two months before it is over? Answer: To help participants in Cancun Climate Conference desperate because the public don’t believe, funding and power is being lost, as their deceptions are exposed.
Most believe 2010 is the warmest year ever, which is what government weather agencies, proponents of anthropogenic global warming and their supporters want. What is actually claimed is that 2010 is on the way to being the warmest on record, but they know media headlines will distort and USA Today along with others obliges with; 2010: Warmest year on record
Distortion and deception became necessary to support the collapsing exploitation of climate science (Figure 1) faced by all enjoying the warmth of Cancun Mexico while attending the Conference of the Parties (COP) 16 climate meeting. The paradox of record cold wasn’t lost on the public.
The Same Messengers and The Same Old Gang Of Deceivers
Who is making the claim about warmest year while record cold reinforces public cynicism? It’s the same old cast of deceivers identified by BBC reporter Richard Black, who Michael Mann considered reliable. He’s the person they asked to silence BBC reporter Paul Hudson when he produced a skeptical article. Hudson was first recipient of the leaked CRU emails, but did nothing, apparently intimidated by Black.
Black reports; “Temperatures reached record levels in several regions during 2010, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) says, confirming the year is likely to be among the warmest three on record.”
There were also record lows, but the stations they selected bias toward warm.
Black: The global average temperature was 0.58C above the average for 1961-90 according to Nasa, while the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa) put the figure at 0.54 above.
Why is there a difference if there is only one data set? They both over estimate, but NASA GISS, with political scientist James Hansen in charge, are always highest.
Black: The UK record, kept by the Met Office and the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, has 2010 in joint first place with the El Nino-dominated year of 1998.
The UKMO is re-examining its data. The Sunday Times notes,
The new analysis of the data will take three years, meaning that the Met Office will not be able to state with absolute confidence the extent of the warming trend until the end of 2012.
All these groups have actively modified the data to emphasize warming. D’Aleo and Watts’ detailed the extent in their paper, “Surface Temperature Records: Policy-Driven Deception?” Reduction in the number of stations alone created a severe warming distortion. (Figure 2) All government weather offices have adjusted their data to reduce early temperatures, making the current readings seem warmer.

Understanding Of Climate Science Necessary To Understand Deception
Some accused me of extremism for asking if the deliberate climate deception constituted crimes against humanity. People don’t want to believe such a massive deception could occur, especially if government is involved. It’s why they dismiss those who see what is happening as conspiracy theorists. There are conspiracies, defined as a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful. Cabal may be a better description of their actions; “the artifices and intrigues of a group of persons secretly united in a plot (as to overturn a government); also: a group engaged in such artifices and intrigues.” However, deliberately altering data is unlawful and harmful.
There are two big problems created by the exploitation of climate for a political agenda; lack of scientific understanding and lack of knowledge about the political manipulation and criminality practiced. They are interdependent. People don’t grasp the extent of the criminality because they don’t understand the science. It’s why people didn’t understand the implications of the false IPCC Reports and leaked CRU emails.
Now WikiLeaks reveals the extent of government involvement in the deception. The leftist British paper, The Guardian, blames the US with the headline “WikiLeaks cables reveal how US manipulated climate accord” and the charge that, “Hidden behind the save-the-world rhetoric of the global climate change negotiations lies the mucky realpolitik: money and threats buy political support; spying and cyberwarfare are used to seek out leverage.”
They ignore the fact that all nations are involved. Maurice Strong embroiled all the world’s weather and climate bureaucracies when he organized the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change through the WMO. Anthony Watts describes what the WikiLeaks material exposes. “What really strikes us is the fact that all this Copenhagen/Cancun stuff has nothing to do with the Climate, or saving the World. It’s about political positioning, money, and plain old fascism cult promotion.”
Politicians are involved, but most control and duplicity is by national weather agencies. They’re the majority of the IPCC people and dominate conferences like the travesty in Cancun. Politically biased scientists and environmental groups support them. They know the public is not buying the science any more (Figure 1). They’ve switched to exploiting fear, but that exposes them even more as temperatures plummet. Some are so desperate to achieve their goal they’ve openly abandoned the sinking science ship and revealed the real redistribution of wealth agenda. “Last week the German newspaper NZZ Online quoted German economist Ottmar Edenhofer, who is co-chair of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Working Group III on Mitigation of Climate Change, as saying, “The climate summit in Cancun at the end of the month is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War.”
James Taylor of the Heartland Institute provides further evidence.
The UN-sponsored climate talks underway in Cancun are living up to – or down to – expectations. Proving once again that global warming is more a political issue than a scientific one at the UN, and that wealth transfer rather than warming mitigation is the true goal of UN action, Professor Kevin Andersen of the UK’s Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research has submitted a paper saying “rich” nations such as the U.S. should halt economic growth over the next 20 years while allowing developing nations such as China and India to continue their explosive growth and emissions growth. Enforcement of economic growth restrictions in nations such as the U.S. should be enforced by World War II-style rationing, according to Andersen.
World Held Hostage to False Climate Science
My question about crimes against humanity was based on the degree of deliberate deception of climate science practiced. The emails leaked from the CRU alone are sufficient to condemn what has occurred. The scientists involved provided the corrupted science through the IPCC that those led by Maurice Strong needed. They were exploiting climate to destroy developed economies and in doing so have caused untold trauma, disruption, costs and despair. Billions of dollars were wasted on research. False economies were created to promote alternative energy and green jobs. Viable industries and businesses have disappeared or are pushed to the edge with unnecessary costs and regulations. Real problems were ignored. Countries that went further down the false CO2 path, such as Spain, are already paying a high price. Food prices are just one example. They soar as corn is diverted to produce biofuels threatening starvation among people in developing regions. Millions of people including children were driven to fear about the world coming to an end. Progress to deal with real problems and improve economies were set back years because of wrong policies. Credibility of science was seriously undermined.
The only thing that allowed the world to withstand some of the damage was the viability and strength of economies built on fossil fuel energy and free market policies. Hopefully, those who don’t understand the climate science will at least understand the corruption, malfeasance, and deceptions in the CRU emails, the WikiLeaks information and other disclosures. It doesn’t require science to understand the tangled web of those deceptions.
