Just days before the President Obama leaves for the Copenhagen meeting on climate change; White Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says the Obama Administration standby global warming.
Despite the uproar involving the release of the hacked e-mails that show that the scientists have been manipulating the data supporting their theories.
The Climate Research Unit at University of East Anglia in Norwich,England has caused firestorm of controversy when a blogger hacked into the CRU computer system and placed the e-mails and other documents on a blog based in Russia, has appeared to contradict the theories by supporters of Climate Change.
Letter from Profs. Phil Jones of the University of East Anglia and Michael Mann of Pennsylvania State University shows how the scientists used method to prove global warming.
Press Secretary Gibbs says that the White House believes “climate change is happening.”
“I don’t think that’s anything that is, quite frankly, among most people, in dispute anymore,” he said during Monday’s press briefing.
“I think there’s no real scientific basis for the dispute of this,” responded Gibbs to questions about those scientists’ credibility.
Climate Change critic Senator James Inhofe,(R-OK) the ranking member of the Environment and Public Works Committee;wonders about the decision to standby Global Warming Theories and has called for investigation into the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to find out if it “cooked the science to make this thing look as if the science was settled, when all the time of course we knew it was not.”
“[T]his thing is serious, you think about the literally millions of dollars that have been thrown away on some of this stuff that they came out with,” he told reporters, noting it was “interesting” the e-mails surfaced before the Copenhagen summit.
