After reading this email to the late climate scientists Steven H. Schneider (released from the 2 year FOI effort to NOAA) below…
…I have this question for Bill Lambrecht of the St. Louis Post Dispatch:
How do you reconcile journalistic integrity with your apparent bias in stating to a scientist that it is important to challenge stories coming out of your congressional district?
The post Climategate1 story you suggest a challenge to is:
WASHINGTON, D.C. _ U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-9) today introduced legislation that would save taxpayers $12.5 million this year and millions more in the future by prohibiting the United States from contributing to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which is fraught with waste and is engaged in dubious science.
“We all know that the UN is incompetent when it comes to spending money, and that is why American taxpayers should not be forking over millions more to one of its organizations that not only is in need of significant reform but is engaged in dubious scientific quests,” Luetkemeyer said. “Folks in Missouri and across the country are tired of this never ending government spending spree, and my goal is to deliver some of our people’s hard-earned money back into their pocketbooks instead of spending it on international junk science.”
Luetkemeyer’s legislation would prohibit U.S. contributions to the IPCC, which is nothing more than a group of U.N. bureaucrats that supports man-made claims on global warming that many scientists disagree with.
Seems like a clear-cut case of media bias to me.
