Former CIA Agent Investigates “Climategate”

Kent Clizbe isn’t working for the US government or any other organization. He’s one man searching for answers amidst the Climategate controversy.

As the Collegian reported this week, Mr. Clizbe sent letters to 27 Penn State faculty members in hopes of locating a snitch whistleblower. He possesses an extensive background in secure communications and has even recruited a lawyer who has experience working with the False Claims Act.

Faculty members who come forward with information about the Climategate controversy will be protected–and apparently well paid.

We contacted Mr. Clizbe to understand his motives for launching this personal investigation. He explained:

“As a concerned American citizen, I’ve been following the Man-caused Global Warming discussion for many years.  The recent escalation of the stakes, led by Mann, Al Gore, and the UN’s IPCC, with their demands that the US reduce our use of coal and oil, and pay ransoms to poor countries, raised my level of concern for the US and for the world.”

Apparently, Mr. Clizbe is not entirely sold on the issue of anthropogenic global warming and wants the full, unadulterated story, sans false information and misleading evidence. To find the truth about Mann’s supposedly fraudulent activity, he requests that Mann’s colleagues step forward with any relevant knowledge surrounding the issue.

“I understand that the ramifications for any whistleblower could be serious and severe.  Therefore, the key issue that potential whistleblowers at Penn State need to understand is that their security and confidentiality is of utmost importance.  All communications with myself or any attorney, or others on this matter will be completely confidential until such time as the whistleblower chooses to change that.”

Mr. Clizbe will not divulge the identities of any whistleblowers, and the informants will even receive a hefty payment. Hmm, this has the makings of a moral dilemma. If you were a colleague of Michael Mann with the lowdown, would you blow the whistle?
