Warming issue is extortion

Regarding the article "Climate talks shift into high gear amid protest" Dec. 13: Desmond Tutu, while in Copenhagen, stated "This is a problem. If we don't resolve it, no one is going to survive." And now he wanted to outline national pledges to curb carbon emissions and set up a mechanism to provide billions of dollars in help for poor countries.

Can someone in the media let him know that the Climate Research Unit has admitted to suppression and destruction of scientific data, subverting any peer review processes and has been blacklisting and attacking opponents, all of which demonstrate that the scientific anthropogenic climate issue, formerly known as global warming, is simply another means to extort millions of U.S. tax dollars.
