A new batch of 5,000 emails among scientists central to the assertion that humans are causing a global warming crisis were anonymously released to the public yesterday, igniting a new firestorm of controversy nearly two years to the day after similar emails ignited the Climategate scandal.

Three themes are emerging from the newly released emails: (1) prominent scientists central to the global warming debate are taking measures to conceal rather than disseminate underlying data and discussions; (2) these scientists view global warming as a political “cause” rather than a balanced scientific inquiry and (3) many of these scientists frankly admit to each other that much of the science is weak and dependent on deliberate manipulation of facts and data.

Regarding scientific transparency, a defining characteristic of science is the open sharing of scientific data, theories and procedures so that independent parties, and especially skeptics of a particular theory or hypothesis, can replicate and validate asserted experiments or observations. Emails between Climategate scientists, however, show a concerted effort to hide rather than disseminate underlying evidence and procedures.

The truth is clear: Evidence against the man-made climate change theory exists, and liberal allies in the scientific community are scrambling to save face by hiding that data from the American people and other scientists alike.

Now we know that the “scientific facts” about climate change touted by liberals are nothing more than pseudoscience.

There is no real consensus amongst scientists about climate change. There is only weak data being manipulated by a team of political operatives who masquerade as scientists.

Liberals subscribe en-masse to the paranoid and factually dubious claim that the world will soon be destroyed by mankind.

If that is the case, then why are they trying so hard to censor any evidence that points to the contrary?

The closest historical parallel to liberals and climate change is the Spanish Inquisition.

The Inquisition silenced anyone who challenged its teachings. Even if a scientist could provide clear proof that the world was round and revolved around the sun, the Inquisition would force that scientist to say the world was flat and was the center of the solar system.

Are modern climate change believers, with their data-tampering and political arm-twisting, really all that different?

Liberals want nothing more than to crush American industry in the name of fighting climate change.

Thankfully, the Climategate revelations mean that more and more people realize just how dangerous and unnecessary the liberal climate change plans really are.

Donald Trump knows exactly what the Left wants to do. As a result, he fulfilled his campaign promise to withdraw from the suffocating Paris climate agreement.

The climate change Inquisition is actively being exposed. Now, Americans will know the climate change lies when they hear them.
