The leaking of the East Anglia “Climategate” e-mails and data last November shattered the appearance of a scientific consensus on supposed “man-made global warming” and provided a disturbing insight into the corruption of the scientific process as it relates to the “man-made global warming” hypothesis. But just who or what had corrupted the science in order to produce the phantom “consensus”?
Commentators in U.S. online discussion forums and blogs wasted no time in identifying two prime suspects: the reputed prophet of green energy, Al Gore, and the right’s least favorite “leftist” billionaire, George Soros. But the real culprit is named again and again in the East Anglia e-mails and documents. The culprit is, however, named with many different names, mysterious combinations of letters and numbers and lyrical code words, names like “DGXII, DGXI, FP5, FP6, FP7, LIFE, ENRICH.” In the final analysis, it is but one and the same multinational organization that lurks behind all these designations: the European Union.
