An interesting new player in the cloud computing sector is Cloud.com, which offers an open source cloud platform. The company’s software is being used primarily by service providers to quickly build and deploy cloud platforms, allowing them to offer in-house services to cloud-curious customers, rather than seeing them depart for Amazon. In this video, Cloud.com Chief Marketing Officer Peder Ulander provides an overview of the company’s technology and business.
Question by Jimmbbo: Why is Climategate not a smoking gun, but a MUSHROOM CLOUD over manmade global warming’s peer review process?
The True Believers say “The evidence pointing to a growing human contribution to global warming is so widely accepted that the hacked material is unlikely to erode the overall argument.”
Climatologist Patrick J. Michaels challenged that position. “This is not a smoking gun, this is a mushroom cloud.” The e-mails implicate scores of researchers, most of whom are associated with the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), an organization many skeptics believe was created exclusively to provide evidence of anthropogenic global warming (AGW).
Among the IPCC elite embarrassingly, if not criminally, compromised is Phillip D. Jones, a Ph.D. climatologist at the University of East Anglia whose work figured prominently in the IPCC Third Assessment Report of 2001. Jones also contributed significantly to the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report in 2007 (AR4), but he failed to follow through when skeptical investigators asked to review raw data associated with that report.
They announced intent to use UK Freedom of Information laws to obtain the data, so Jones sent the following e-mail to one of his collaborators: “Mike, Can you delete any e-mails you may have had with Keith re AR4? Keith will do likewise…. Can you also e-mail Gene and get him to do the same?… Will be getting Caspar to do likewise.” The Mike in this message is Michael Mann, professor of meteorology at Pennsylvania State University, whose influential “hockey stick” graph warning of pending global warming eco-catastrophe was found by a congressional investigation to be fraudulent. In another correspondence about AR4 labeled HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL, Jones contacted Mann regarding research critical of their global warming platform. “I can’t see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report,” wrote Jones. “Kevin and I will keep them out somehow — EVEN IF WE HAVE TO REDEFINE WHAT THE PEER-REVIEW LITERATURE IS!” (emphasis added)

Media = Ran by Liberals
Global Warming = Ran by liberals.
EDIT* You don’t buy it? The University said they were authentic.
Global warming is a joke. It is indeed a fabrication of facts. This year there was not one hurricane. It is cold as sh*t right now. Any change in global climate was natural and humans had little to no effect on it. Those are observable facts. I don’t need to be a scientist to know that. I also don’t need someone juking the stats like a bad episode of “The Wire” to know that either.
