GLENN: Stu's working on a segment for TV tonight on global warming and the budget. What did we find out this weekend? I know that we found out about the glacier thing a couple of weeks ago. In fact, the glaciers, they are not melting. The glaciers, everything remember in Al Gore's movie where he shows the one glacier up in the him lay as or whatever?
PAT: Falling? It breaks off and falls? Is that one?
GLENN: No, that's another one. But the glaciers
STU: Yeah, hard to keep it all straight.
PAT: Remember, I mean, the one scene he used from Day After Tomorrow.
PAT: Took it directly from Day After Tomorrow and put it into his movie.
GLENN: So here he's got all these glaciers. We find out that the glaciers, what they said was happening with the glaciers and let's not say that all glaciers are, you know, building up ice or whatever. But what they said was happening with the glaciers, not true.
STU: Right. And the biggest problem was that they sourced it essentially from an interview in a magazine. And the guy who did the interview was the guy I believe who caught it and said, wait a minute, that's not what this guy said. Now remember this is what they pitch to you all the time, peer review, peer review, peer review, science, science, science, and they are taking stuff from magazine interviews, but at least that was with a scientist.
GLENN: Okay. So now, that's where they get that whole peer reviewed "Glaciers are melting" nonsense. We find out now, it's verified, that they knew this at Copenhagen.
STU: Before Copenhagen, yeah.
GLENN: But didn't say anything.
GLENN: Keep that quiet. We also know that there was a Climategate, you know, Freedom of Information Act, memos destroyed, coverups. I mean, this is Watergate stuff. On a global scale. What did we find out this weekend that nobody's reporting?
STU: Amazingly they found out that the IPCC report that also missourced the glacier information also had one source in the report that sourced a climbers magazine, a magazine like Runners World for mountain climbers. That was the source of one of the, talking about, you know, mountains going back, sourcing anecdotal evidence from a climbing magazine and another source in the IPCC report actually sourced a student's dissertation, and he was going for he was a major in geography. And it was a student's dissertation on geography.
GLENN: Not peer reviewed.
STU: Not peer reviewed.
GLENN: A student.
STU: A student sourced in the IPCC report and all of this is coming out of the U.K. which seem to be the only people bothering to cover it.
GLENN: So all of this stuff is happening and yet for some reason Obama has in his budget, he's counting on the money from cap and trade. Hmmm, that's kind of interesting, isn't it?
