TV Tricks Of The Trade

On a lot of blogs a quote has been circulating that the lead IPCC author of Chapter 8 made a shocking admittance.

The latest installment of Jesse Ventura’s highly successful Conspiracy Theory show exposed millions of viewers on national TV last night to the climate change fraud, blowing a giant hole in the global warming scam by exposing how its adherents comprise wealthy industrialists making billions in profits by fearmongering about the environment.

The most damning part of the program is when Ben Santer, a climate researcher and lead IPCC author of Chapter 8 of the 1995 IPCC Working Group I Report, admits that he deleted sections of the IPCC chapter which stated that humans were not responsible for climate change.

Accusing Santer of altering opinions in the IPCC report that disagreed with the man-made thesis behind climate change, Lord Monckton told the program, “In comes Santer and re-writes it for them, after the scientists have sent in their finalized draft, and that finalized draft said at five different places, there is no discernable human effect on global temperature – I’ve seen a copy of this – Santer went through, crossed out all of those and substituted a new conclusion, and this has been the official conclusion ever since.”

“Lord Monckton points to deletions from the chapter, and there were deletions from the chapter, to be consistent with the other chapters we dropped the summary at the end,” Santer admits to the program.

Commenting on The Alex Jones Show today, Lord Monckton said that this was the first time Santer had publicly admitted to deleting the information.

Unfortunately for these people who are crying victory it is not as clear cut as you might suspect at first glance. For starters this quote goes against everything Maurice Strong has said publicly and is quite out of character. But the most telling thing is that the video where he makes this admittance has a very obvious cut in what Maurice Strong is saying. If you know what you are looking for.

The following video from Potholer54 gives a very nice rundown on the spread of this incorrect quote and why it was deliberately done by the editors:
