Many of us have been harshly questioning the junk science behind global warming for years and now a massive blow has been dealt to the hucksters pushing this nonsense. Of course, politicians have been working hard to re-brand global warming by calling it climate change considering the last decade or so of global cooling which has been occurring.
Nonetheless, news is surfacing about dozens and dozens of emails exposed from some of the top climate change “researchers” (liars) from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in England. The emails contain numerous conversations about hiding, manipulating and destroying data which is contrary to their view among other things. Keep in mind this is one of the premier research centers for climate change which is often responsible for driving peer-reviewed “science” on this topic and publishing numerous reports claiming that mankind is definitively causing global warming.
In fact, just how important is the Climate Research Unit? The Wikipedia sums it up:
The Climatic Research Unit is a component of the University of East Anglia and is one of the leading institutions concerned with the study of natural and anthropogenic climate change.
It has around thirty research scientists and students and has developed a number of the data sets widely used in climate research, including the global temperature record used to monitor the state of the climate system, as well as statistical software packages and climate models.
This is the group providing the models and statistical basis used around the world to push the climate change lies.
Report on the emails from the Washington Times:
Scientific progress depends on accurate and complete data. It also relies on replication. The past couple of days have uncovered some shocking revelations about the baloney practices that pass as sound science about climate change.
It was announced Thursday afternoon that computer hackers had obtained 160 megabytes of e-mails from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in England. Those e-mails involved communication among many scientific researchers and policy advocates with similar ideological positions all across the world. Those purported authorities were brazenly discussing the destruction and hiding of data that did not support global-warming claims.
Professor Phil Jones, the head of the Climate Research Unit, and professor Michael E. Mann at Pennsylvania State University, who has been an important scientist in the climate debate, have come under particular scrutiny. Among his e-mails, Mr. Jones talked to Mr. Mann about the “trick of adding in the real temps to each series … to hide the decline [in temperature].”
Mr. Mann admitted that he was party to this conversation and lamely explained to the New York Times that “scientists often used the word ‘trick’ to refer to a good way to solve a problem ‘and not something secret.’ ” Though the liberal New York newspaper apparently buys this explanation, we have seen no benign explanation that justifies efforts by researchers to skew data on so-called global-warming “to hide the decline.” Given the controversies over the accuracy of Mr. Mann’s past research, it is surprising his current explanations are accepted so readily.
I’m frankly disgusted in this whole matter for one reason and that is due to the fact that politicians are attempting to impugn legislation such as cap-and-trade on the American people based on a total fabrication put out by fraudulent scientists.
More from the UK Times Online:
If you own any shares in alternative energy companies I should start dumping them NOW. The conspiracy behind the Anthropogenic Global Warming myth (aka AGW; aka ManBearPig) has been suddenly, brutally and quite deliciously exposed after a hacker broke into the computers at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (aka CRU) and released 61 megabytes of confidential files onto the internet. (Hat tip: Watts Up With That)
When you read some of those files – including 1079 emails and 72 documents – you realise just why the boffins at CRU might have preferred to keep them confidential. As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be “the greatest in modern science”. These alleged emails – supposedly exchanged by some of the most prominent scientists pushing AGW theory – suggest:
Conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organised resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more.
One of the alleged emails has a gentle gloat over the death in 2004 of John L Daly (one of the first climate change sceptics, founder of the Still Waiting For Greenhouse site), commenting:
“In an odd way this is cheering news.”
But perhaps the most damaging revelations – the scientific equivalent of the Telegraph’s MPs’ expenses scandal – are those concerning the way Warmist scientists may variously have manipulated or suppressed evidence in order to support their cause.
The earth is not heating up, it has been cooling for over a decade and the global warming prhpets have been covering it up by purposefully manipulating data. I have been reading for years how the data makes no sense as credible scientist after scientist came forth to denounce the flawed theory of man-made global warming as little more than massaging of the data.
Another summary on these new revelations from one of my favorite sites, Global Warming Hoax:
A server belonging to the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit was hacked and a large file containing documents and emails was obtained. A number of these documents seem to indicate an attempt to manipulate data and public opinion.
“Wow!” hardly seems to cover it. There is a huge amount of material here and people are still going through it. No one is denying that this data is legit but we have spent some time investigating it ourselves and have concluded that to fake this much data would be extremely difficult. Even the IP numbers of the mail servers shown in the messages check out (on both the to and from email servers). The data is legit, now the question remains what impact will this have and why hasn’t CRU taken action against some of the people involved?
Many of the documents seem to be concerned with hiding scientific results that don’t agree with them. There are also references to destroying data. Some email messages actually suggest that others destroy data before its discovered under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request (and ironically all of these documents were contained in a folder called “FOIA”). So the next time someone says that “scientists would never fake or manipulate data” here is evidence that they would.
Shameful, there is nothing worse than scientists adhering to a political agenda over the scientific process. Hucksters like Al Gore have been making millions off the carbon credits for years all based on the fraudulent premise that global warming is a fact of life and we’re causing it.
I have never accepted the faulty premise of “climate change” and now I feel even more vindicated. I am just hoping that this becomes bug enough to kill bad legislation like Obama’s cap-and-trade bill which will devastated our economy based on Al Gore’s lies.
