Posted on 12/02/2009 9:57:52 AM PST by PJ-Comix
Your humble correspondent has been checking the Huffington Post Green section every day since the ClimateGate scandal exploded. After all, that Green section is pretty much predicated on the theory that the earth is warming dangerously and that Man is the cause of it. At first, the Green section had a few relatively minor stories attempting to dispute the revelations of the ClimateGate scandal. However, today the Huffington Post went into a complete panic mode on this topic. Bigtime.
The Green section now features a huge story at the top of the page by Katherine Goldstein which features a slideshow supposedly exposing "The 7 Biggest Lies About the 'Global Warming Hoax'." However, even many of their own readers aren't buying the lame excuses presented as you will see here.
So let us now join the Huffington Post Green section as irritation is expressed over the term "ClimateGate" as they wish it to be replaced by "SwiftHack":

Doesn’t matter what you call it, it’s still a lie.
Their god stands naked and ashamed....................
swift boating = telling the truth
Man made Global Warming has been Swiftboated?......
O.k.......the truth always hurts the liars.
Ping me if you find one I've missed.
Just think of all the tax money these green assclowns were waiting to jump on!....That’s got to hurt!
OK, which one of you Swifthackers left the climategate open?
It is really fun reading about this subject.
Hey, Huff Post! Your beloved leftist media tried to expose the fraud that is Al Gore YEARS ago and you didn’t listen!
Pay attention, ya’ll.

The Inconvenient Truth Al Gore Hopes You Forget!
So, I wake up this morning to hear Al Gore has won an Oscar for trying to save the world!
Then I went out and shoveled 18 of his global warming out of my driveway.
First question: Why didnt he do anything to try to save the environment during his 8 years as Vice President and how many years as a senator?
Some say the Vice President has no power, cant make policy, blah, blah.
Next question: Then why was he able to pull off selling one of our few oil reserves at Elk Hills in California to his big oil buddies at the expense of the environment and fuel reserves. This story was widely reported, but that was 10 years ago. How soon we forget.
[snip]Occidentals planned drilling of the Elk Hills doesnt only threaten the memory of the Kitanemuk [Indian tribe}. Environmentalists say a rare species of fox, lizard and the kangaroo rat would also be threatened by Oxys plans. A lawsuit has been filed under the Endangered Species Act. But none of that has given pause to Occidental or the politician who helped engineer the sale of the drilling rights to the federally-owned Elk Hills. That politician is Al Gore.
Gore recommended that the Elk Hills be sold as part of his 1995 Reinventing Government National Performance Review program. Gore-confidant (and former campaign manager) Tony Cohelo served on the board of directors of the private company hired to assess the sales environmental consequences. The sale was a windfall for Oxy. Within weeks of the announced purchase Occidental stock rose ten percent.
That was good news for Gore. Despite controversy over Dick Cheneys plans to keep stock options if elected, most Americans dont know that we already have a vice president with oil company stocks. Before the Elk Hills sale, Al Gore controlled between $250,000-$500,000 of Occidental stock (he is executor of a trust that he says goes only to his mother, but will revert to him upon her death). After the sale, Gore began disclosing between $500,000 and $1 million of his significantly more valuable stock.
Nowhere is Al Gores environmental hypocrisy more glaring than when it comes to his relationship with Occidental. While on the one hand talking tough about his big oil opponents and waxing poetic about indigenous peoples in his 1992 book Earth in the Balance, the Elk Hills sale and other deals show that money has always been more important to Al Gore than ideals.
The Climate Comrades are certainly going to try, but they can't really spin this one. BTT.
www.hopenhagen.org links to and is linked on Huffington post Green. The blog there has NO pro-AGW posts that I could find, even the lonely thread on climategate.
Swifthack? And like the Swiftboat Vets, the attacks will be on the messenger because they can’t defend the findings!
There once were some whores at East Anglia
Who could very well tickle a ganglia
Twas not ass they were selling
But CO2 they were smelling
It was odorless, colorless but could stranglya
I’m happy with that - seeing as how “swiftboating” means “shining the light of truth” ;)
They should change the name of their site to Dopenhagen.huffingglue.com
Oh, and one other thing....they would have us believe that they meant an alternate meaning when they used the word “trick” and I can go for that. What they really meant when they said they would do a “trick” was that they would screw us for money.
Almost got away with it, too...
The funny thing is that the "trick" e-mail is not even close to the most damning evidence, just the evidence that that average J6P might best understand as outright fraud.
Ask Kevin this question for me, "Does your summary of AGW's key points depend almost exclusively on data and research gleaned from East Anglia - CRU?"
I thought so...
ping climate gate article
I found a CRU thread on HuffPo six days ago and plenty of the HuffPo readers were quite frisky and rebellious. Not swallowing the party line. I did not see censorship so that was good
Stassinopolis is a mega-greenie so she is having brain lock right now.
I can predict the fall back position and it will be we need alternative energy so we are not at the mercy of the Ay-Rabs. My reply will be -— “We have a few centuries worth of coal and doing great with new natural gas discoveries so lets get going and start drilling and digging”
