A new report reveals a British scientist and Wikipedia administrator rewrote climate history, editing more than 5,000 unique articles in the online encyclopedia to cover traces of a medieval warming period – something Climategate scientists saw as a major roadblock in the effort to spread the global warming message.
But this is hardly surprising. Long before Climategate broke, there was the sworn testimony of Dr. David Deming of the University of Oklahoma before the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works on 6 DEC 2006 where he said:
"...I was contacted by a reporter for National Public Radio. He offered to interview me, but only if I would state that the warming was due to human activity. When I refused to do so, he hung up on me...
"...I received an astonishing email from a major researcher in the area of climate change. He said, "We have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period...
"...The Medieval Warm Period (MWP) was a time of unusually warm weather that began around 1000 AD and persisted until a cold period known as the "Little Ice Age" took hold in the 14th century. Warmer climate brought a remarkable flowering of prosperity, knowledge, and art to Europe during the High Middle Ages... now it was a major embarrassment to those maintaining that the 20th century warming was truly anomalous. It had to be 'gotten rid of.'"
Unfortunately for the cabal, they forgot that every email and Wikipedia edit sits on somebody's hard drive somewhere. Which reminds me of a joke.
Q. How many climate change proponents does it take to change a light bulb?
A. None. There never was a light bulb.
