US House of Representatives votes 244-179 to stop US funding of the IPCC.
Rick Piltz reporting in climatesciencewatch.org reports on 19 February 2011 the huge US Congress vote against any further funding of the pro man made climate change Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change(IPCC). Republican Blaine Luetkemeyer of Missouri led the onslaught when referring to the leaked climategate files from the climate research unit at the University of East Anglia in November 2009. He said "Scientists manipulated data,suppressed legitimate arguments in peer reviewed journals and researchers were asked to destroy e-mails,so that a small number of climate alarmists could continue to advance their environmental agenda" Holding a recent 740 page report in his hand signed by 700 acclaimed international scientists which challenged the claims made by the IPCC and which he said represented some of the most respected institutions at home and abroad including the US Department of Energy and Defense, the US Army and Navy. A vote of 244-179 is most decisive and illustrates the American public have had enough of the man made climate nonsense.
