Climategate, by Brian Sussman, arrived from Amazon yesterday and UPS decided to leave it out in the rain. Sussman was a veteran Meteorologist, a media icon in the San Francisco market for years according to his bio. Maybe our former San Francisco media giant Jeff Pelline knew Brian Sussman and can fill in more details.
According to the book jacket Sussman does a “through investigation into the motives, practices and ultimate agenda” .... to untangle the web of deceit being sold as concern for the environment.” I am 41 pages into my slightly damp copy, and Sussman is filling all my expectations.
This also arrive yesterday from Rasmussen Reports, although I did not see it until this afternoon.
Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Americans now believe there is a significant disagreement within the scientific community over global warming, up seven points from early December just after the so-called “Climategate” scandal involving doctored or deliberately undisclosed scientific evidence first broke.There is hope that more citizens will take the time to read Sussman’s version of Climategate and the numbers will climb to ninety-five (95%).

. . . “only a quarter of adults (25%) think scientists do agree on global warming, showing no change from the earlier survey. Fifteen percent (15%) are not sure. Just 16% say stopping global warming to save the environment is a bigger priority for our national leaders than stimulating the economy to create jobs. A sizable majority (72%) say creating jobs is the bigger priority.”
