Peabody Energy has filed a petition
] with the EPA asking them to reconsider their findings that greenhouse gases released by human activities “threaten the public health and welfare of current and future generations.” The Peabody Petition was filed in light of the massive evidence of the manipulation of the IPCC process—a processes highly prized by the EPA—which has been exposed by the Climategate emails. The EPA conducted little-to-no assessment of their own into the science of climate change, but instead relied heavily on the work of the IPCC—work which the Petition shows, in no uncertain terms, is tainted and unreliable.
The full Petition is one of the strongest cases yet presented that the EPA’s reliance on the IPCC Assessment Reports is misplaced, scientifically as well legally. It includes an in-depth look at the behind-the-scenes manipulation that took place with such topics as the “hockeystick,” tree-ring divergence, the “trick,” the warm early Holocene, the Medieval Warm Period, the surface temperature record, Freedom on Information requests, scientific peer-review, journal contents, and many other topics.
Here is an excerpt (from the 200+ page Petition) that provides a general summary of the science problems:
