Global Warming Fraudsters Bilked EU & US for £800,000 Annually for Last 20 Years

This weekend top global warming expert Professor Phil Jones the former director of the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) admitted that global warming was a fraud.

* Data for vital ‘hockey stick graph’ has gone missing
* There has been no global warming since 1995
* Warming periods have happened before – but NOT due to man-made changes

Jones admitted this weekend that there has been no significant global warming in the last 15 years.

But, that didn’t stop these fraudsters from bilking the EU and US for £800,000 ($1,253,624.84) annually for the last 20 years.

The members of the CRU were not the only ones bilking the system. Al Gore saw his net worth grow from $2 million in 2000 to over $100 million in 2008.

EDP24 reported:

Over the last 20-year period, CRU’s budget has been an average of £800,000 per annum which comes from various sources, mainly research grants but also from the European Union and from the US Department of Energy, which has helped fund Prof Jones’ work.

Isn’t it about time for a full scale investigation of this massive green fraud?

    The fact that these people knowingly lied, cheated and stole our money for their fake research projects is appaling.
    All legal mechanisms to ‘claw-back’ the funds ought to be implemented. Names ought to be revealed, Universities ought to be liened upon and hearings ought to be held.

    Well global alarmists, it’s payback time.

  • BurmaShave

    The real crime here with the global warmer “scientists” is that they were conspirators to get the governments of the world and the UN to take control of everybody’s life and tax and bilk everybody in the world with a fraud. So far as I am concerned each and everyone of them should be imprisoned for life and denied all publishing rights.

    And that’s just the CRU fraudsters; there are a hundred more our there sucking down public money to foment their religion.

  • jonyjoe101

    though is a drop in bucket, this should be the first “budget cut” we need to do to balance the budget.

    Fat slob “Al Gore” looks like he eats pretty good, he won’t miss the “bones” that won’t be deposited into his bank account.

    Has anyone notice all the politicians (current and ex) live in mansions? You never see a poor politician.

    Problem is that it would take the government to bring charges and they are equally complicit in the crime. They want control of everyone’s life and these “academic” a**hats were more than willing to provide the method.

    Tar and Feathers seems appropriate.

    Sounds like a False Claims Act violation. Any one who knowingly makes a false statement to the U.S. Government for the purpose of getting a fraudulent claim paid is liable for $5K per violation (each invoice) plus 3 times the actual damage. 31 USC 3729.

    If Michael Mann published the article with the “hockey stickey,” he’s the one who is responsible for maintaining a copy of the original data.

    I’m sorry, but the SCIENCE is SETTLED. The MSM has moved on to bigger stories in Wasilla Alaska at the SHARPIE store.

  • halfacarafe

    Let the trials begin. Al Gore can not claim he did not know the truth. His claims of scientific proof was based on Dr. Revelle’s studies. Dr. Revelle disavowed him and actually sued him to get his name off out of his oscar winning film.

    The problem is that most people won’t even know about or read this story. Unless you read the UK papers, Drudge, or most of the conservative blogs, this stuff isn’t even mentioned.

    I just had a discussion with my mother about this last night. Unfortunately, she gets all of her news from ABC, NBC, and MSNBC. She spouts all of their ridiculous talking points about AGW verbatim. She tried to say these snowstorms (over 12 inches here in Dallas, blasted our record by almost 5 inches) were a result of AGW. I told her that the last few years these folks also said AGW was responsible for little to no snow…..they can’t have it both ways.

    My apologies for reposting but…GE is the parent company of NBC universal.

It is the propaganda arm for GE…And, the AP and Reuters are the propaganda arm for the democratic party and neo communists/progressives…It is no surprise that the public have been bombarded with lies and denied the truth surrounding the global conspiracy that is global warming…

  • Deloras Vind

    Let us not forget the spin off of the global warming hoax is renewable energy. Wind power is just as much an Enron shell game as is AGW.

  • Scott

    Global warming was to be the Trojan Horse for neo-communists to exert power, control, and extract taxes for the state…The nazis, russians, chinese, vietnamese, cubans, north koreans, kymher rouge, and others got their way by killing tens of millions…Neo-communists have re-packaged and rebranded themselves as Progressives…In the modern era and particularly in America with gun rights, the new communists have no hope of totalitarian rule. They must be lie and manipulate the public and destroy their enemies politically to get what they want…We saw what they tried to do to President Bush…He held the line on these lunatics for eight years…Now, the weight of lies is destroying Global Warming. The battle lines have only just been drawn however. It seems that communism has more lives than Freddie Kruger…But, we are beginning to know the enemy…That is the first step to victory.

    not the first time I have seen such writings.

    What would a lawyer do? The CRU is broke. Liberals blow all their money.
    So, who’re the deep pockets in this train wreck?

    Al Gore. Mr. Moneybags.

    Where IS he BTW? Both he and Hillary have been noticeable by their absences.

  • Andreas K.

    The German government is considering buying stolen bank data about what they call “tax dodgers” who dumped their money into Switzerland. In order to “serve justice”. Which, in fact, is a criminal act by itself, since buying and selling stolen goods is nothing else but fencing criminal loot.

    Yet…

    The German government is awfully silent over this issue here.

    But wait… the German government has been cashing off with “global warming” themselves…

    Are we going to see legal action taken by the official sides?

    Don’t think so. It was those official sides who happily supported the scientists with tons of money so that they could continue to spew their nonsense.

  • Charlie Gibson

    Bubba, looks like you got that “dumb” thing down all by your lonesome. Did you miss the Phil Jones interview with the BBC? He admitted that there’s been no appreciable(statistically significant) warming since 1995(with the exception of 1998).

    But, if you insist on “shortbussing” this thread, try and at least fit some sort of fact based verbiage in your comment, prior to declaring everyone else a moron.

    So, “The dog ate my hockey-stick data,” eh?

    Cripes, that was lame even in third grade. These guys have been caught dirty. I really want to see some jail time and pay backs of all the funding ‘stolen’ to support this crap.

  • From the Brits- who are experiencing a serious lack of any sense of humor over this-

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1250872/Climategate-U-turn-Astonishment-scientist-centre-global-warming-email-row-admits-data-organised.html

    Understand. Unlike American liberals, who have discretionary income, the Brits have suffered loss of wages, jobs, and living standards over “global warming”. These people are going to be really PI**ED OFF! Remember the difference in the cultures. When we are mad at our football team we throw foam fingers and empty paper beer cups. They throw rocks, bottles and each other.

    If Al Gore were British he’d move.

    Somebody owes somebody money. I wonder when the lawsuits will be brought against Jones and the rest for theft and fraud. If a Pharma company lied on their tests to get a drug out and people were injured, the people would sue and win.

  • Estragon

    Wait a minute here! While it is true that Al Gore’s investments mean that if his policy prescriptions were enacted, he would be the first “green” billionaire, the big boost in his net worth had nothing to do with that.

    From his $2 mil personal net worth on leaving office, Gore made his money through his high-tech connections, being appointed to several boards of directors and accepting stock options as compensation. Most of his increase came from Google – he had been given many shares in advance of their IPO, and was an instant 9-figure guy.

    Whether or not it was appropriate for a retiring politician to accept all this free money is debatable, but his windfalls were quite independent of the global warming scam. At least, so far . . .

    The wheels are truely falling off the Global Warming/Climate Change hoax. At the national level the Cap & Tax scheme seems to be stuck. But at the State and Local levels, in man places, so called “Green Initiatives” of “Green Agendas” have been adopted or are being considered. Their strategy was to ram it down from the top. Having failed in that, they new tactic is to get it in locally. But the end game is the same. These initiatives must be stopped, and where adopted, they must be ended.

    For money, for filthy lucre, Algore betrayed this country!! He preyed on our fears!!! Because of his lying propaganda, Americans have been deprived of American oil, American coal, of the right to drive the kind of cars that we want, of the opportunity to buy cheap fuel. He got rich; America got screwed.

    Gore betrayed this country! He preyed on our fears!
