Climatologists “Intentionally Mislead The Public On Climate Change,” says Ryan

“Statistical tricks.” “A perversion of the scientific method.”

Finally! A politician with some common sense!

VP candidate Paul Ryan is a skeptic when it comes to catastrophic manmade global warming,

Here’s what Ryan wrote about Climategate less than 3 years ago:

„„…(e-mail exchanges) from leading climatologists make clear efforts to use statistical tricks to distort their findings and intentionally mislead the public on the issue of climate change.“

„The CRU e-mail scandal reveals a perversion of the scientific method, where data were manipulated to support a predetermined conclusion.“

And here’s a partial list of Ryan’s other climate and energy accomplishments:

– voted to eliminate EPA Limits On Greenhouse Gases. [Roll Call 249, 4/7/11].

– voted to block the USDA from implementing its climate raindance. [Roll Call 448, 6/16/11].

– voted to eliminate the assistant to the president for energy and climate change, the special envoy for climate change (Todd Stern), and the special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation. [Roll Call 87, 2/17/11].

– voted to eliminate ARPA-E. [Roll Call 55, 2/17/11].

– voted to eliminate the ban of incandescent light bulbs. [Roll Call 563, 7/12/11]

– voted for Keystone XL. In 2011, Ryan voted for the construction and operation of the Keystone XL pipeline. [Roll Call 650, 7/26/11]

– Paul Ryan’s FY 2013 budget resolution retained a decade’s worth of oil tax breaks worth $40 billion, while slashing subsidies in alternative energy research. The plan called for a $3 billion cut in energy programs in FY 2013 alone. [CAP, 3/20/12].

I applaud Romney’s selection of  Paul Ryan to be his running mate.

  1. Misleading on purpose maybe not only for money but to catch millions with their pants down….that will help bringing the population down…..??

  2. He just got my vote. No better words could be chosen to describe this HOAX & SWINDLE perpetrated by the well-known co-conspirators on the U.S. taxpayers.

  3. Then why is he running with Romney? Romney is a “beleiver” in manmade global warming. And in more taxes.

  4. My only problem with the above is the continuation of subsidies/tax breaks for the oil companies, who are swimming in profits and have been doing so for some time. Ryan’s resolution has holes in it and does not address the twin problems of runaway costs on entitlements and congressional spending options, but it at least makes sense not to throw good money after bad. With Obama the US is shooting itself in the foot in terms of economics by entertaining these ridiculous climate change initiatives.

  5. Right on the nose!

    The only use I have for wind turbines is for individual homes to have them available as backup. Also, they might want to have solar panels and generators available as backup.

    If the EPA gets away with their plan to cripple the electricity generation industry in this country, we will need to be prepared to generate our own power.

    Of course, the universal surveillance protocols will probably be less useful in an environment where not everyone is online anymore.

    If the EPA gets their way, and we have frequent blackouts like the undeveloped parts of the world, then Big Brother might be unhappy. Can you say “unintended consequences”?


    • Most cities and towns have laws that prohibit them due to noise restrictions.

      We were going to put one up here in Silverton Oregon but it goes against the noise restriction.

      What we need is a 2 acre plot and all that’s available is 10+ acre farms or lots already zoned for housing due to certain laws.

  6. Given enough money, Paul Ryan WILL believe in the “anthropogenic global warming”. I guess I too would with enough money from the Devil…

  7. I agree with Kevin K, “My only problem with the above is the continuation of subsidies/tax breaks for the oil companies, who are swimming in profits and have been doing so for some time.” Why do we need to subsidize big oil companies??? I cringe everytime I fill up wondering how much I’m going to be gouged. And what really ticks me off is the oil companies are doing it for no other reason that they can do it with impunity. We should be giving subsidy’s for the development of the next generation of fuels/source of energy, not oil companies. Oil will run out eventually. And it is not known confidently how fracking is affecting the countryside.

    • Oil companies do not receive subsidies. They do receive various tax deductions and credits which are generally available to other industries. The most controversial of which is the oil depletion allowance, which somewhat offsets the oil industry’s lack of ability to deduct so-called intangible drilling costs. The oil industry in fact pays enormous taxes. The claim that oil companies receive subsidies is really a reflection of the Left’s apparent belief that all wealth belongs to the state, and the income which private actors are allowed to keep is a tax expenditure or a subsidy.

    • The costs of doing business esp. for oil companies has skyrocketed from what it used to be. Regulations and government mandates haven’t helped any. I read somewhere recently that oil companies profit on gasoline is somewhere near 17 Cents per gallon. I wouldn’t call that ‘swimming’.
      The bulk of what we pay for gassing up our cars is in Federal and State tax on fuel.
      Along with all of our own increased costs on staying alive, oil companies have also had increased costs on drilling, pumping, refining, and distribution.
      I don’t believe in the Marxist claptrap that says big corporations are all about sticking it to the little guy. That is more the province of Big Government!
      Corporations want to provide value to their customers at the lowest possible price. After all they are in competition with other businesses.

      • Just remember that “big corporations” are owned by stockholders – which are, at this time largely mutual funds and Pension Plans – which means us, the “little guys” so, when we want to take away their 1-2% profit margin we are shafting ourselves as well.

    • So, please list the exact subsidies they are getting.

      All that I have seen are legitimate tax deductions. Please explain to me why an oil company should not be able to write off exploration expenses and the cost of leases.

      I am an engineer, and every single company I have worked for has been able to write off all development expenses.

      Further more, speculators (wall street) and the government both make more money off oil than the “oil companies”

      So if rich people must be taxed, I don’t see any of y’all going after Obama who has become a mufti-millionaire being a community organizer and politician!

      sorry, I’m tired of the drivel.

      I’m tired of the wasted money on “renewables”, If the tens and tens of billions of dollars spend on failed solar and wind projects where put into Thorium reactors, older nuclear power plants and coal plants would be shuttered because of excess power.

      Not because of a political will (Obama and company) to increase energy costs.

      • Liberals will think of any lie they can to cover up the ice age.

        It’s all part of the Illuminati alien agenda plans to control the world and the Republicans VS Liberal debates help them with their goal as *useless idiots* whom will soon be devoured anyways.

        They (The Illuminati) hate and I mean HATE free market with every fiber in their bodies but they cannot hope to control people unless they get rid of it in which they cannot get rid of it unless they brainwash people.

        They cannot brainwash people unless it’s done in a slow and delicate process to confuse the issues.

        I am sorry but it’s going to take another bloody war to bring back freedom and anybody who can should learn how to use guns or swords to defend themselves when the SHTF.

        We have a mug that says “Freedom is not Free” because you have to defend it.

  8. Dale. Subsidies and tax breaks are not the same thing. I have no problem giving business a tax break. They certainly are not under taxed. Before you even get to the income tax, business has already paid, corporate fees, permit fees, employment taxes, Social Security Taxes, Medicare taxes, Medicaid taxes, etc………. the list is lengthy. Now, a business that has the possibility of loosing a billion dollars on one failed well can’t be in the business of breaking even. Profits are necessary and the use of those profits to finance the next venture is vital.

  9. Paul Ryan is a good choice for Veep and gives us a ray of hope on the climate issue and for the good of our country. Make no mistake, every vote will count simply because so many will not vote because they think their vote would make no difference and as many as 90 million potential voters will fall into this category in this election (according to USA Today this week). It is going to be a close one(just like the last two), so please vote everybody!

    • Vote for the same people over and over again?

      No matter WHO you vote for we are done for as nobody has the guts or the bible to stand up.

      We need the bible guts and guns to secure our freedom from tyrant governments.

  10. I am working offshore about 2 degrees north of the equator on the west coast of Africa and for the past 2 weeks strangely cold out here?

  11. Apparently global mean temperature has dropped 1 degree C from 1990 levels (due to our green policies no doubt ! – right?)

    Is this a trend, if so that is quite a drop and by extrapolating that we get another degree drop by 2032, or more worryingly it may start dropping exponentially.

    “I cringe everytime I fill up wondering how much I’m going to be gouged.”

    Quite a common attitude, and the leftists and mainstream media (but I repeat myself) have spared no expense to ensure that you feel that way.

    You are reading and responding to a science blog, so I assume that you are at some level ‘into’ data. If so, I ask that you do a little experiment.

    The next time that you go into a ‘quickie mart’ to fill up, note the price of the gasoline that you put into your car.

    Then go into the quickie mart and note the price of a popular bottled water like Dasani. If not Dasani, pick another nationally known brand or simply write down the price of a 16 oz container of each brand in the store and average them.

    Armed with your two data points, go home and convert the price of the water into cost per gallon.

    Go on the internet and determine the amount of tax, federal, state, and local, that is built into the price of the gas at the pump and subtract that from the price you paid. The remaining price is what the ‘oil supply chain’ gets to retrieve the oil from its natural habitat, convert it to a form that your car can use, put it in a convenient location, and still make their ‘obscene’ profit.

    Now that you have the cost of the water and the pre-tax cost of the gasoline, make yourself a list of the steps that must be accomplished by the oil company, starting with LOCATING the oil pocket thousands of feet below the surface of the earth or ocean and ending with burying huge tanks underground at the gas station and installing and maintaining the pumps that will deliver the gasoline to your tank with the wave of a card. Don’t forget the cost of the permitting process and regulatory compliance.

    Having done that, and if you are diligent the list will be LONG, do the same exercise for what Coca-Cola must do to get Dasani into the cooler at the quickie mart, starting with building the plant (in a convenient urban location)that filters city water and bottles it and ending with hiring a truck and driver to deliver it to the cooler at quickie mart. Oh, wait, that is pretty much the entire process, isn’t it?

    Now that you have the prices per gallon for the gasoline and the water and a reasonably exhaustive list of what the oil company and the bottled water company must do to get their product into your hands at the quickie mart, decide which company is ‘gouging’ you. Factor in which company is delivering a product that is absolutely essential to modern civilization, which company is delivering a convenience item that could go away with essentially zero impact on your life, and which company is NEVER the subject of hit pieces railing about their ‘obscene profits’.

    • Exactly – the profit margin is actually quite small for oil companies, I did not do your math but I would expect it is much less than 2% of income. The income level is high so the small percentage seems like a lot but it is only a tiny fraction of the income. And the oil companies are owned by shareholders – like ME with my miserable 6,000 in retirement invested in mutual funds that own stock in some oil companies. Their profits are not obscene they are part of my pittance of an IRA – and probably yours as well as pension funds of all types are shareholders.

  13. Is there perhaps a better ticket out there? Maybe. Does that better ticket have a shot at winning? Definetly not.
    Mitt and Paul(sounds like a 60’s folk band) have my vote. Are they perfect? Nope but they represent my way of thinking far more than the current President and company do. R&R in 2012!
