Update: "Climategate 2 FOIA 2011 Searchable Database"
An alleged republican lobby group loves the CO2 industry and has a page listing elected officials it endorses. Some of them such as John McCain might also be classified as Soros Republicans. Note that Mike Castle is on the list but we got rid of him. Disappointed to see Rep. Ros-Lehtinen on the list.

""Climategate" is back. It was a stinker the first time. The sequel is worse.
The peddlers of the climate denial genre have gone back to the tried and untrue. The producers of "Climategate" have fished another lemon out of the schlock well and pounded out a dreary sequel, "Climategate 2," just in time for the climate conference season.
"Climategate," an overhyped release from 2009 that had the media world buzzing and audiences confused about the true state of climate science, turned out to be a shoddy piece of brain candy. The plot was based on a false premise, the script was thin, and the character development was both wooden and implausible.
Numerous expert reviewers gave "Climategate" and its extravagant claims the big thumbs down. The National Science Foundation, a science committee of the U.K.'s House of Commons, and an independent British panel were among the knowledgeable critics who panned that holiday bomb.
"Climategate 2" is more of the same. As we've seen all too often with sequels, there are no fresh departures from the original's contrived story line, that an evil cabal of scientists concocted a climate change hoax to push some unspecified diabolical agenda. The script is a hack job straight out of the pulp fiction world—a cobbled-together mash that is supposed to substantiate the trite spin doctoring, banal cherry picking, and self-serving agendas that climate denial productions keep trotting out like warmed-over meatloaf at the neighborhood greasy spoon.
The producers of "Climategate 2" shot themselves in the foot with their timing. Just a few weeks ago, an exhaustive review of global temperature records carried out by physicist Richard Muller, hardly a lackey of climate scientists since he has been critical of their work, confirmed the global warming trend. Many lines of observational evidence—not just computer models, but data gathered in the field—lend considerable weight to the conclusion that the warming trend is real and that it bears a strong human fingerprint.***
"Climategate 2" offers no compelling reason to call the mountain of evidence into question. Like the first installment in the series, it's an attempt to manufacture drama out of a thin gruel of insipid plot elements. The first production was pathetic. The second is simply a bore. Stuff this turkey with raspberries and go watch something else."
***This is a lie. Muller's report made no mention whatever about a human component in world temperature. This release sounds as if it were written by someone with a substantial professional interest in AGW-- or perhaps just a radical from a Soros group. Care of the environment is everyone's concern and something entirely different from the CO2 racket which is run by investment bankers. It's always good to know what's out there. ed.
