The earth is warming up, that is not a conspiracy. The leaked CRU emails contained absolutely nothing controversial. All the quotes touted by the ignorant conservatives have been analyzed and explained, revealing absolutely no conspiracy. If you actually spent 5 minutes reading more than just one sentence, researching the people who wrote the emails you would discover their true meaning. Deny Ignorance is supposed to be our motto but all I see is ignorance regarding this topic.

In Mikhail Gorbachev's book Perestroika: New Thinking for Our Country AND THE WORLD on page 32 he lays it out in the open:
"We will now firmly stick to the line that only through the consistent development of the democratic forms inherent in socialism and the expansion of self-government can we make progress... It is exactly because we place emphasis on the development of socialist democracy that we pay so much attention to the intellectual sphere, public consciousness and an active social party... In the West, Lenin is often portrayed as an advocate of authoritarian methods of administration. This is a sign of total ignorance of Lenin's ideas and, not infrequently, of their deliberate distortion. In effect, according to Lenin, socialism and democracy are indivisible."
And on page 34, ibid:
"Perestroika means mass initiative. It is the comprehensive development of democracy, socialist self-government...But in principle I can say that the end result of perestroika is clear to us. It is a thorough renewal of every aspect of Soviet life; it is giving socialism to the most progressive forms of social organization; it is the fullest exposure of the HUMANIST nature of our social system in its crucial aspects - economic, social, political and moral... The essence of perestroika lies in the fact that IT UNITES SOCIALISM WITH DEMOCRACY and revives the Leninist concept of socialist construction both in theory and in practice."
And on page 36, ibid:
"...we are conducting all our reforms in accordance with the socialist choice. We are looking within socialism, rather than outside of it, for the answers to all the questions that arise. We assess our successes and errors alike by socialist standards. THOSE WHO HOPE THAT WE SHALL MOVE AWAY FROM THE SOCIALIST PATH WILL BE GREATLY DISAPPOINTED. EVERY PART OF OUR PROGRAM OF PERESTROIKA- AND THE PROGRAM AS A WHOLE, FOR THAT MATTER -- IS FULLY BASED ON THE PRINCIPLE OF MORE SOCIALISM AND MORE DEMOCRACY...More Socialism means more democracy... We will proceed toward better socialism rather than away from it. We are saying this honestly, without trying to fool our own people or the world. ANY HOPES THAT WE WILL BEGIN TO BUILD A DIFFERENT, NON-SOCIALIST SOCIETY AND GO OVER TO THE OTHER CAMP ARE UNREALISTIC AND FUTILE."
Also on page 147, ibid, one interesting statement:
"A third world war, if unleashed by imperialism [Bush Doctrine], would lead to new social upheavals [global economic collapse, terrorism] which would finish off the capitalist system for good, and this would spell global peace [socialism]."
Now, as to clarify the United States position on this policy, let's refer to Presidential Documents (AE2.109:25/47) "Administration of George Bush, " November 22, 1989, page 1822:
"Off the island nation of Malta [Knights of Malta], Mikhail Gorbachev and I [President George Herbert Walker Bush]will begin the work of years... I will assure him that THERE IS NO GREATER ADVOCATE OF PERESTROIKA THAN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES."
Don't you guys get it? Communism is nearly dead with the exception of north korea and cuba.
The Earth's climate is changing, and has been having wild fluctuations of both cold, and warming.... No one is saying Climate change is not happening, but your people just want to blame mankind, and allow a one world government to rule over people with the excuse that "all humans are evil and they must be contiained." No matter how much you try to dismiss the leaked emails, YOU ARE WRONG.... Obviously YOU haven't read what the emails say. Other scientists, including from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) have ADMITTED that the leaked emails ARE REAL, and that it will take a lot of effort for them to gain the credibility of the people.
