Over on WUWT one Gail Combs pulled a thread that is fast unravelling the veil and revealing the 'invisible hand' behind the AGW scam: World Bank, Global Warming, Journals, and CRU.
At http://foia2011.org I searched for worldbank.org and found 32 e-mails going back as far as 1998. I have only looked at three so far. Looks like the good old World Bank may be something of a puppet master.One of the emails dug up by Gail is one by Robert Watson (World Bank, formerly IPCC) apparently telling Rajendra Pachauri what to in the AR4 put Summary for Policymakers. Then there's a second email, by a Kenneth M. Chomitz of the World Bank, interfering with how a peer reviewed journal is run.
In itself this is a remarkable find. The contra-AGW camp is often accused of having access to the deep pockets of Big Oil. From these finds it seems that the pro-AGW camp has access to even deeper, more influential pockets! Oh, the hypocrisy...
In the comments there are several people reporting what they find as they pick up the trail sniffed out by Gail. And it is in the comments where things start to get really interesting. What it lays bare is quite concerning (and food for no end of conspiracy theories). At the very least it provides strong circumstantial evidence that the whole AGW scare is indeed a push for One World government. And not one of the freedom loving kind, either.
There's too much in the entire threat to replicate here. To summarize: It shows possible connections between the UN, various NGO's, the World Bank, Big Wall Street (Goldman-Sachs is cropping up here as well) and Big Industry, Big Oil even. Head on over and take it all in. Commenter 'Robert from Ottawa' says it is worse then Lysenkoism. That is exactly the impression one is left with after reading it all. It is worse then mere, blinkered Lysenkoism. Much, much worse, in fact.
