'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The University of East Anglia got what it paid for -- a fig leaf intended to hide the truth about climate alarmism.

A new report upholds climate alarmists' preordained blame-mankind conclusions and "exonerates" the university's Climatic Research Unit by whitewashing its scientific misconduct documented in the Climategate e-mails. It's a clumsy whitewashing, too -- one whose conclusions were just as preordained.

This report is touted as "independent" but was commissioned by the university . It was headed by one Muir Russell, described in media accounts as a former civil servant -- which doesn't exactly connote scientific or statistical expertise.

It's the third such whitewashing -- after one by the British Parliament and another funded by the university. And with this "exoneration" in hand, the university, which fired Phil Jones from his post as the unit's head after his infamous "trick" Climategate e-mail was exposed, is rehiring him as its director of research. How convenient!

What this report really confirms is that climate alarmists and their enablers pervert genuine science and whitewash evidence of their misconduct. Hopefully, those gullible enough to buy what these charlatans sell will get what they have coming, too.
