Hello I'm Charles -- -- for Neil Cavuto climate -- for -- climate gate.
Oh never -- those emails exposing a cover up -- global warming scientists who apparently.
Can find evidence that the planet is actually warming up at all.
I guess this trivial story hasn't made it to the White House because the president announcing today he will travel -- Copenhagen to attend.
The global climate summit next month where he will propose a costly plan.
The cut emissions to -- -- says good for the president because climate gate is being blown out a way out of proportion.
Jim is the author of feeling the -- dispatches from the frontlines.
Of climate change.
Jim these are damning emails and that really seems like to a lot of -- prove that this whole global warming thing is a -- Well I think they'll be reading a lot into one scientist -- perhaps overzealous or a -- one side -- we're talking a thousand even though there's only one -- there's only one smoking gun here the scientists said something like.
He used a trick to fix the report.
And he says that it's completely rubbish that he would manipulate scientific data I'm not here to defend that guy think he probably did overstep his bounds I'd like to know more about it.
In terms of manipulating data -- -- remember a book called the Republican war on science.
There was a whole book filled with manipulation of climate science that book but -- -- talking about here though is a situation more.
We're gonna change a lot of what we -- in this country -- this is going to be an expensive fix to a problem that may not even exist.
I think it's very important that science be held -- the highest standard.
And I think this gentleman.
Needs to look at how he manipulates data this is that the University of East Anglia.
And they downloaded from the -- a 160 megabytes from the servers of the university a lot of emails a lot of did not a -- by the way he wasn't sending them to himself.
This is about global thing there was a guy Pennsylvania another professor I mean this is a lot of people who were very important are also -- the United Nations.
And that's damning stuff well there's a damning email there's not a whole lot of damning data and there I mean if you really wanna get bored read some climate data there.
Written by scientists -- that stuff people put you straight to sleep -- About the I -- first so there's a lot of stuff -- there I mean they say they can't find any evidence of global warming.
-- you have of course a guy talking about the tricks.
Then there's Mike's nature trick coming into -- talk about -- -- -- -- forty years but this is incredible stuff there was no email saying hey you know what if no one condemn these emails this collusion or seems like collusion.
Among the guys -- -- making the determination that the world the world is getting.
-- again I'm not here to defend that guy if it's found that he manipulated science he probably should resign a lot of people are calling on him to resign I have no.
I don't have enough knowledge -- really know what he should do it's based on one sentence in an email that's all I know I've -- about it I didn't -- lead.
Else might -- -- I don't know so but where does this put us those shall we take at least take a step back and in the president's gonna make this trip he's -- he's gonna make some serious suggestions that are going to be extremely expensive to Americans.
Certainly at least step back and say let's really look at this before we take this incredible step would come across and rubicon here.
No I don't think we should do that I hesitate to tell people to read my book but.
Feeling the heat is full of -- -- the Republican vote what -- -- -- feeling the heat is full of evidence that climate change is already happening.
Glaciers are melting all over the world sea level is rising.
We're seeing heat waves storms are increasing intensity because of that we saw Hurricane Katrina we saw a lot of give.
-- saying that so that you know what's so funny because after Hurricane Katrina the big warning was next year's going to be worsening a year after that it's actually gotten better it's been really cold that.
Does it mean to the average person affect most polls now showing the average person is starting to have second thoughts about this is that why they're just gonna try to run with this manipulate data and get any kind of build on.
And maybe before the country has an epiphany.
I have might have thought that until I read and the Fox's own poll on this issue.
That shows that 75%.
Of Americans really do believe that -- board's direction you have -- going in -- -- it's gone down below what I was up at day 80% but it's still most Americans believe it's real.
Jim they're very Smart -- -- really at this point considering this and how many people -- involved in these emails going around the world.
Should we take a step back so the president reconsider even momentarily.
And say maybe we need that outside independent counsel to take a look at this stuff.
I think we should look at the operations of that university.
But I don't think there's any question the global warming is real and I think the president should step forward rather than back all right -- thanks a lot appreciate your time okay.
