Gates galore



Numerous like sand in the desert are the different scandals that have been shaking the global warming establishment the past year. A very clever person came up with attaching the suffix "-gate" to each one of these outrageousities, in rembemberance of the Watergate scandal when Nixon (famous for his enviromentalist inclinations) broke into the Republican headquarters.

The current avalanche of gates started with Climate-gate, and then it went on from there, like a card-house falling apart when you torch it with napalm. Woossh! For your benefit, I have compiled the most comprehensive list of Climate gates on the Internet. It includes past, present and future gates.
Remember that one single gate was enough to end the presidency of Nixon. Then imagine the unstoppable force of the more than 150 gates (including sub-gates) I have listed here. I even add more of them as I write this. Anybody who sees this list must think: "Oh boy, how may gates! Global warming cannot be true!" If enough people read this list, we will win the war against climate science! Then we will be the consensus! It is simple blog science logic.

  3. What a mess!

    It's only when you see it after an independent researcher lays it all out that the full impact hits you.

    Why are the press not beating down their wives to make a path to your door, Baron?

    Unless there's something else stopping them.
    Pressgate?

    In particular Dutch-gate was useful, as that can be given three different names!

  7. Dear Baron,

    Thank you so much for putting the gates in alphabetical order. It is this sort of precision and accessibility to data that makes blog science impeccable!

  8. The ignorance of these scandals in the public mind is itself a scandal. Perhaps it should be called gate-gate?
