Its not about climate change, its about taking away your freedom

The Real Copenhagen Agenda, Editors, Wall Street Journal

last week, Pennsylvania State University said it would launch an inquiry into the conduct of Michael Mann, one of its professors and perhaps the world's most prominent paleoclimatologist.

Jones and Mann have both been key contributors to the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

emails leaked from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit two weeks ago revealed, among many inconvenient truths, the corruption of the IPCC's process of assessing climate science. . .

Still, despite the probes into some of the IPCC's key participants, the chair, Rajendra Pachauri , of that body insists nothing rotten is about to happen in the state of Denmark, where world leaders are set to debate sweeping policies based on IPCC conclusions.

"It is a very transparent, a very comprehensive process which insures that even if someone wants to leave out a piece of peer reviewed literature there is virtually no possibility of that happening," . . .

for all his insistence that the group's methods are spotless, he seems eager to change the subject from science. What he has chosen to talk about instead is instructive. It seems what most concerns Mr. Pachauri now is not climatology, or glaciology, or oceanography—but the way we live.

"Today we have reached the point where consumption and people's desire to consume has grown out of proportion,". . . "The reality is that our lifestyles are unsustainable."
