New chapter in Climategate scandal

The Climategate Scandal blew the lid on the scheme, proving that the whole dastardly sham was a creation of scientists gone bad who had no other goal than to win more research money and to propagate a Leftist political agenda.

New information has surfaced over the last 48 hours that adds more shame and disgrace to those who perpetrated this grand lie on an unsuspecting public.

In 2007 the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the IPCC) issued a report that included a dire warning concerning the glaciers in the Himalayan Mountains. The report stated that unless drastic changes were made globally to industry and commerce, economic systems, and the common lifestyles of advanced nations, the Himalayan glaciers would be gone completely by 2035.

CLIMATEGATE - Australian IPCC Author Prof Andy “Hide the Funding” Pitman cries “No Fair”

So we now have Andy “Hide the Funding” Pitman failing to be able to discuss facts and instead resorting to describing his own absurd version of reality in an ABC interview. He claims scientists for the IPCC receive no funding. Did $63,400 in funding somehow slip your mind Andy during the publicly broadcast interview with the ABC?

Read Andrew Bolt’s article and see Andy fail to mention his funding whilst accusing skeptics of being unemployed and "so well funded". Excuse me Andy, I think your slip is showing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As the cult of the Earth-Centered Universe began to crumble in the face of Galileo's telescopic observations, all those scientists and clergy who had prospered by "studying" epicycles panicked. Rather than admit they had been wrong all those years, they accused the users of telescopes with consorting with the devil, and ultimately tortured Galileo into a public recantation of his studies.

Today we see the same thing happening again. The Global Warming Cult, rather than admit they were wrong (or used) is screaming that the "heretics" are consorting with Exxon. No doubt, some wish that the skeptics could be waterboarded until they public recanted.

But people like Andy Pitman only prove that the Global Warming cult really was a cult, still living with the mindset of the year 1600, the year Giordano Bruno was burned at the stake for suggesting that the stars were the same thing as the sun, only much further away and probably with other planets around them.

But this is the 21st century. And the old ways no longer apply.

Eppur Si Muove, your eminence!

UK Parliament announces 6th Climategate Inquiry

No Climategate FoI prosecutions

First off, I was told that while there appeared to be a problem, I needed to be clear that there would be no prosecutions under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act, regardless of the final outcome of the investigation. Although withholding or destroying information is a criminal offence under the terms of the Act, apparently no prosecutions can be brought for offences committed more than six months prior. As anyone who has made a UK FoI request knows, it can take six months to exhaust the internal review process before the ICO even becomes involved. The ICO can then take another six months before starting his investigation.

The scandal deepens – IPCC AR4 riddled with non peer reviewed WWF papers

Remember our friends at World Wildlife Fund? Those schlockmeisters that produced the video of planes flying into New York with explicit comparisons to 9/11?

Well it turns out that the WWF is cited all over the IPCC AR4 report, and as you know, WWF does not produce peer reviewed science, they produce opinion papers in line with their vision. Yet IPCC’s rules are such that they are supposed to rely on peer reviewed science only. It appears they’ve violated that rule dozens of times, all under Pachauri’s watch.

The IPCC is now damaged goods. Pachauri is toast, and nobody will be able to cite the IPCC AR4 again without this being brought up.

The Daily Mail’s David Rose in the UK broke this story, it is mind boggling fraud to prod “government action” and grants.

Jan 23 09:00

Wow! UK parliamentary investigation into Climategate may not be a whitewash

But here’s the really surprising part: it’s planning to ask the right questions.

— What are the implications of the disclosures for the integrity of scientific research?
— Are the terms of reference and scope of the Independent Review announced on 3 December 2009 by UEA adequate (see below)?
— How independent are the other two international data sets?

This is very heartening news for taxpayers, rationalists, and everyone who believes in the integrity of the scientific process.

First Climategate, now Glaciergate

Nonetheless, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) — the UN’s official climate research branch — picked up on the WWF’s untested claim and, apparently without doing any further checking of its own, stated in its 2007 report that “glaciers in the Himalayas are receding faster than in any other part of the world and ... the likelihood of them disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high,” above 90%.

This is the report that helped secure the IPCC its Nobel Prize.

ClimateGate: Will the Alarmists Have to go Back to Ice Ages?

Well, friends, the AGW folks are on the ropes, and they are taking a beating. When people can step out of their doors and tell that it’s VERY COLD, they aren’t going to be easily convinced that AGW is happening. When people have free access to international information, they can see that it is VERY COLD all over the northern hemisphere!

Of course, there are some AGW folks that are trying very hard to keep the faith, but they are coming off as increasingly desperate. Al Gore has not been seen much lately. Could the Goracle be in a fetal position, counting the billions he might have made if Cap and Trade had passed? Could “AGW” actually be code for “Al Gore’s Wealth?”

Top fraud attorney seeks climategate whistleblowers

We are turning up the heat in pursuit of prosecutions against scientists involved in the recent Climategate scandal. Our dedicated group of volunteers working with Climategate.com are behind a plan to entice co-workers of discredited Penn State University climatologist Michael Mann to turn whistleblowers in return for millions of dollars in federal reward money. Mann is famous for his emails obtained from the East Anglia University server hacking, and for creating the widely disputed ‘hockey stick’ graph that is depicted in Al Gore’s film, “An Inconvenient Truth.”

When he turns up to work on Monday, he’ll find that all 27 of his colleagues at the Earth System Science Center at Penn State University have received a rather tempting email inviting them to blow the whistle on anyone they know who may have been fraudulently misusing federal grant funds for climate research.

Biased reporting on Climategate

To judge by recent coverage from Associated Press, the Fourth Estate watchdog has acted like a third-rate pocket pet. Case in point is an 1,800-word AP missive that appeared in hundreds of publications, many carrying it on the front page of their Sunday, Dec. 13 issue with the headline, "Science not faked, but not pretty." AP gave three scientists copies of the controversial e-mails and then asked them about their conclusions. The wire service portrayed the trio of scientists as dismissing or minimizing allegations of scientific fraud when, in fact, the scientists believe no such thing.

Hadley Centre releases data but questions remain

McIntyre of Climate Audit noted that the Hadley Centre had only last summer refused to release any such data to him when he had requested it, on the grounds that some of the data were subject to previous agreements that forbade data sharing. That any possible legal and/or diplomatic considerations were suddenly resolved, was not clear to McIntyre and still cannot be reliably discerned from the Met Office’ FAQ links. McIntyre speculated that the Met Office might have realized that their legal position was never sound and that they prepared the release to keep themselves out of legal peril.

Climategate: the corruption of Wikipedia

If you want to know the truth about Climategate, definitely don’t use Wikipedia. “Climatic Research Unit e-mail controversy”, is its preferred, mealy-mouthed euphemism to describe the greatest scientific scandal of the modern age. Not that you’d ever guess it was a scandal from the accompanying article. It reads more like a damage-limitation press release put out by concerned friends and sympathisers of the lying, cheating, data-rigging scientists

Which funnily enough, is pretty much what it is. Even Wikipedia’s own moderators acknowledge that the entry has been hijacked, as this commentary by an “uninvolved editor” makes clear.

ClimateGate Expanding, Including Russian Data and Another Research Center

Well now some Russian climate officials have come forward stating that the data they handed over to the Hadley Centre in England has been cherry-picked, leaving out as much as 40% of the cooler temperature readings and choosing the hottest readings to make it appear things were warmer than they actually are (regardless of whether the temperature is human-induced or natural).

Even as socialists work feverishly for an accord to limit the freedom of the people and to transfer large amounts of our property to others (otherwise known as “theft”) in Copenhagen, this new ClimateGate scandal explodes onto the pages of the British newspaper the Daily Express:

On Tuesday, the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) issued a report claiming that the Hadley Center for Climate Change based at the headquarters of the British Meteorological Office in Exeter (Devon, England) had probably tampered with Russian-climate data.

The IEA believes that Russian meteorological-station data did not substantiate the anthropogenic global-warming theory. Analysts say Russian meteorological stations cover most of the country’s territory, and that the Hadley Center had used data submitted by only 25% of such stations in its reports. Over 40% of Russian territory was not included in global-temperature calculations for some other reasons, rather than the lack of meteorological stations and observations.

What If Climategate was Cancergate?

What if the intercepted emails uncovered medical researchers discussing the fudging and hiding of cancer research data, and trying to interfere with the peer review process to prevent other medical researchers from getting published?

Climategate: the ailing 'mainstream' media are committing suicide by ignoring the scoop of the century

Climategate is a global household name. No cat has ever emancipated itself more completely from the bag. It is a world-wide scandal – thanks to the internet. Yet, as its ramifications proliferate and dominoes continue to fall, the most repeatedly asked question online is: how can the mainstream media ignore this? Well, we know the answer to that: the MSM are in thrall to the leftist consensus. End of story. But let me pose a follow-up question that may be becoming more imminently relevant.

Are the mainstream media capable of surviving their sidelining of the number one global scoop? Are they finally committing suicide? Are they, in fact, any longer mainstream?

If Climategate Is No Big Deal, Why Are Questions About It Met With An Armed Response?

The boilerplate response on behalf of the guardians of the global warming scam is to claim that the climategate scandal holds no significance whatsoever.

Climategate: with business interests like these are we really sure Dr Rajendra Pachauri is fit to head the IPCC?

Particularly interesting is Dr Pachauri’s connection with the “not-for-profit organisation” TERI. As we learn from its website, this used to stand for Tata Energy Research Institute, but was renamed in The Energy And Resources Institute in 2003. Nothing sinister, I’m sure, in its decision to play down the Tata connection; nor in the fact that Dr Pachauri makes no mention of the fact that he is funded by Tata on his website. And obviously, it is quite normal that TERI makes no disclosure on its website – or in its downloadable annual report (all you get is a pie chart with no figures on it) – about its financial arrangements: the pay scales of its 800 staff members and its esteemed director general are quite rightly hidden from the world’s prying eyes.

But as I was jumping up to write a check to the Sierra Club, I remembered. Hadn’t I heard Ban Ki-moon’s phrase somewhere else before?

I had. And often.

I turned to my trusty archives, and discovered something. At least since the late 1990s, and probably before, journalists, “activists,” and even politicians have been claiming: “It’s worse than we thought.”

Only two things can account for the constant use of these words:

(1) It really is, each and every time we turn around, getting hotter by amounts greater than we had predicted.

While this is logically possible, if this rhetoric were consistently true then by now the Earth’s fish would be swimming in water as hot as Tiger Woods is in.

(2) The politicians, etc., have forgotten the definition of accelerating.

Climategate: Sad Revelation of Corruption in Climate Science

The exposure of thousands of emails, computer code, and other documents from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia last month demonstrates widespread corruption among leading climate alarmist scientists around the world.

The documents show that these scientists have been fabricating, cherry-picking, fudging, hiding, destroying, and otherwise abusing data; intimidating dissenting scientists and journal editors who might publish their work; filtering out dissenting research from the information reviewed by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and by climate change agencies of national and state or provincial governments around the world; and violating Freedom of Information laws and scientific journal policies about data sharing

Climategate: Australian records under scrutiny

Australian scientist Warwick Hughes says that up to 40 per cent of the data used in the Australian study from long-term records came from urban areas where data may have been affected by the Urban Heat Island effect – the phenomenon where heat-retaining surfaces in metropolitan areas cause significant increases in temperature compared to surrounding rural areas.

Hughes claims that the important 1986 study by Professor Phil Jones and colleagues has significant flaws. Professor Jones recently stood aside from his position as Director of the Climate Research Unit of East Anglia University pending an inquiry into information released in leaked emails - the so-called ClimateGate affair.

I would like to begin by thanking you for your good forensic science work, and for your innate commonsense in ab initio sensing what naturally didn't sound right about climate-science's proclamations. But I would also like to express my disappointment that you have stopped a tad short of unraveling the social engineering that lies just behind the thin facade of this mega-funded science of Global Warming. Proving to the mainstream science skeptics that it was fictitious may have been deemed an important first step in unraveling the science of its deception for those of scientific acumen.

Never one to miss an opportunity to jump on a conservative bandwagon, Sarah Palin has called on President Barack Obama to boycott the worldwide climate conference in Copenhagen this month, citing the recent "Climategate" emails incident as proof that global warming is based on "junk science."

Palin has again taken to the social networking website Facebook to voice her opinion, this time declaring that anthropogenic climate change is an "unscientific" excuse for a "cap and tax" plan based on "snake oil" and a "scare tactic" pushed by "dogmatic environmentalists."

Time to Cancel IPCC and Withdraw Nobel Prizes From Them and Gore

Al Gore is the only Nobel Prize winner, whose work was ruled politically biased and containing nine major scientific errors by a court (UK) a week before it was awarded. The Nobel Committee should have known. They could argue they’d already made their decision. Problem is there was considerable evidence about the errors easily available long before. Clearly they didn’t do their homework, so their decision was purely political. The Prize should be revoked.

Climategate Investigator Is Member Of Vehemently Pro-Man Made Global Warming Organization

A civil servant who is a member of one of the most vehemently pro man-made global warming advocacy organizations in Europe which also has direct ties to the IPCC has been handed the job of whitewashing the investigation into the University of East Anglia, while absurdly billing himself as impartial and unconnected to climate science.

Meanwhile, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has ludicrously announced that it will conduct its own investigation into the climategate scandal, despite the fact that the suspects involved have intimate ties to the IPCC, with one of the primary scientists accused of manipulating climate data being a lead author of the 1995, 2001, and 2007 IPCC reports.

Copenhagen climate conference: Independent review launched into 'climategate' scandal

Emails stolen from the University of East Anglia allegedly show scientists were willing to manipulate data on climate change. Climate change sceptics say the scandal casts doubt on the argument that man made greenhouse gases cause global warming.

The row is in danger of scuppering an international deal at Copenhagen later this month to tackle temperature rise.

In order to limit damage to the scientific community and public trust in the science around climate change, the UEA have launched an independent inquiry.

ClimateGate Fraud Exposes Dirty Tricks Agenda For Global Government

Globalist minion Al Gore and the United Nations climate change shysters led by Phil Jones are in trouble. Last week hackers uncovered a pile of email and documents revealing what many of us already knew — the climate change agenda is based not only on easily debunked junk science, but outright lies and deception.

In the wake of the damning revelations exposed by these anonymous hackers, the climate change snake oil salesmen Gore and his complaisant entourage of now discredited scientists are in full retreat.

Gargantuan Industry Of Climate Alarmism Exposed By ClimateGate

The London Guardian and other left leaning mainstream media outlets have pounced on Exxon’s small donations to such groups, reporting it as detestable corporate funding of “climate change denial”.

However, when it comes to the funding of AGW proponents, the figures are infinitely greater, many of the sources take their money directly from our pockets, and yet the Guardian and its ilk, conveniently, remain completely silent.

The leaked emails from the Hadley centre reveal that (now former) CRU chief Phil Jones has received 55 endowments since 1990 from agencies ranging from the U.S. Department of Energy to NATO, worth a total of £13,718,547, or approximately $22.6 million.

NASA Climategate Cover Up

The recent release of the Climategate papers from the Climate Research Unit isn’t the first time those pushing to global warming scam have been caught suppressing information.

Miklós Zágoni was Hungary’s most outspoken supporter of the Kyoto Protocols until he came across the work of Ferenc Miskolczi, a NASA whistle blower who discovered a major flaw in the equations that have been used to predict catastrophic global warming. http://www.blog.speculist.com/archives/001668.html

Miskolczi eventually resigned from NASA because the agency chose to suppress the study that discussed the error. Miskolczi has revised the equations and they no longer indicate the type of catastrophe suggested by NASA bureaucrats.

White House Balks at ClimateGate, Says Climate Change is Happening

When asked about ClimateGate, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dismissed its importance, emphasizing that “climate change is happening.”

Of course climate change is happening. Soon we’ll be calling press conferences to declare, “The earth is moving” or “It’s going to get dark tonight.” The reality is the climate has been changing ever since there was a climate, and part of that change was a cooling period as recent as the 1940s to the 1970s giving rise to fears of a coming ice age. When Gibbs spouts this rhetoric, he’s clearly referring to human-induced warming, but since when has climate change become synonymous with manmade global warming? And what does it take for a scientific consensus to stop being one?

Climategate --The investigations begin

Penn State University has announced that it has begun an investigation of the work of Michael Mann, the director of its Earth System Science Center, following revelations contained in the Climategate documents that have emerged from East Anglia University in the UK.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Investigation? Look how hard they are already working to bolster Mann's reputation in their official statement!

"Professor Michael Mann is a highly regarded member of the Penn State faculty conducting research on climate change. Professor Mann’s research papers have been published in well respected peer-reviewed scientific journals. In November 2005, Representative Sherwood Boehlert (R-NY) requested that the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) convene a panel of independent experts to investigate Professor Mann’s seminal 1999 reconstruction of the global surface temperature over the past 1,000 years. The resulting 2006 report of the NAS panel (http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=11676) concluded that Mann’s results were sound and has been subsequently supported by an array of evidence that includes additional large-scale surface temperature reconstructions.

"In recent days a lengthy file of emails has been made public. Some of the questions raised through those emails may have been addressed already by the NAS investigation but others may not have been considered. The University is looking into this matter further, following a well defined policy used in such cases. No public discussion of the matter will occur while the University is reviewing the concerns that have been raised."

This is a whitewash right from the start! Penn State will never find fault with Mann because that would endanger all that funding his "research" brought in!

ClimateGate scandal demonstrates intellectual protectionism of modern scientists

The inconvenient release of private email conversations among climate change scientists has been a boon for climate change skeptics. What emerges from the leaked emails is a depiction of a group of scientists who practice “intellectual protectionism” — meaning they know they’re right and they’ll do anything to protect their beliefs, even if it means hiding or manipulating data.

Sound familiar? Scientists in the pharmaceutical industry have been practicing this for decades. If you think the ClimateGate emails are revealing, just imagine what kind of similar emails are flying around between Big Pharma scientists who routinely manipulate study data and commit scientific fraud in the name of medicine.

“What is going on at Google? I only ask because last night when I typed “Global Warming” into Google News the top item was Christopher Booker’s superb analysis of the Climategate scandal,” writes James Delingpole.

“It’s still the most-read article of the Telegraph’s entire online operation – 430 comments and counting – yet mysteriously when you try the same search now it doesn’t even feature. Instead, the top-featured item is a blogger pushing Al Gore’s AGW agenda. Perhaps there’s nothing sinister in this. Perhaps some Google-savvy reader can enlighten me.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As I mentioned last eek, there are billions of dollars on the line for the carbon traders and trillions in global taxes on the line for the UN< plus the justification for the UN to take over control of national infrastructure.

The globalists have been at work on this plan since the late 1980s. There is nothing, and I do mean nothing to protect their agenda and the promise of wealth beyond Midas!

No crime will be too extreme, no lie too bold, no sabotage too hateful to carry out, if it serves the New World Order.

Leaked emails won't harm UN climate body, says chairman

Rajendra Pachauri says there is 'virtually no possibility' of a few scientists biasing IPCC's advice, after UAE hacking breach.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Just because we predicted warm, and we are getting record cold is no reason to suspect us!!!!!!!!"

(Ahem)

It is NOT a "few scientists" biasing the IPCC. It is the other way around.

IPCC is not a scientific organization. It is a political one. It was formed by the UN in the late 1980s to allow the burgeoning global bureaucracy to deal with the emerging global problem. BUt the bureaucrats were in charge from day one.

Both the 1990 and 1995 assessments by the IPCC scientists stated that it would be almost impossible to determine exactly what role human contributions contributed to climate, although most agreed that in theory there had to be one.

But in 1995, after the scientists were done, the IPCC bureaucrats changed the assessment wording. They removed the comments that stated that the scientists still could not detect the human contribution to climate and replaced it with a claim that thew human contribution was now discernible and a cause for IPCC action. In short, while the IPCC scientists were saying they could not find evidence that humans were changing the climate in 1995, the IPPC officially said exactly the opposite!

There followed an intense period of funding for scientists willing to study human caused global warming, which meant the money flowed to those scientists willing to accept that major premise as fact. As the leaked emails from CRU document, scientists with opposing views were defunded and blocked from publication. That is not science at work; that is politics.

Climategate is a political scandal, not a scientific one.

Climategate: Have They No Shame?

It is clear that the tip-top scientists implicated in the burgeoning Climategate scandal have no honor, but it is also becoming apparent that they have no sense of shame either. Their strategy is to brazen it out and rely on the great global warming alarmist establishment and the mainstream media to circle the wagons. They have got their talking point and the environmental pressure groups are already repeating it over and over: “The ‘global warming deniers’ are cherry-picking a few unfortunately worded emails and then taking them out of context.” Well, they are some pretty big, juicy cherries and there are a lots of them.

Stephanopoulos: ClimateGate Complicates Copenhagen for Obama

Glenn Harlan Reynolds: Climategate denial foundering on army of Davids

Last week a hacker -- or, perhaps more likely, an inside "whistleblower" -- leaked huge amounts of data from the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University in Britain. The leaks demonstrated that many "insider" scientists were conspiring to block publication of dissenting views in peer-reviewed journals, while suggesting that there was data-fudging, and deliberate evasion of Freedom Of Information requests, perhaps even including deliberate destruction of data.

Worse still, the computer models themselves appear to be jerry-rigged and deeply flawed.

Nov 29 12:32

Significance of “Climategate” Deciphered

So what is all the excitement with the documents that hackers pulled off the computers of the scientists who published the data on which global warming theories are based? The short answer is: the data was corrupt, mismanaged, and manipulated. The bigger issue, though, is the idea that the core people working to prove man-made global warming KNEW this to be true and toiled in their emails to one another about what to do about the fact that the research data was not supporting their theories. That, my friends, is the big deal here.

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY

We have collected together a vast body of evidence calling into question the legitimacy of the claims of human cause global warming. We have collected together a vast body of evidence proving fraud and deception on the part of the global warming cult. Please for this information to everybody you know in times of the essence. Barack Obama as already indicated that he will not be swayed by the exposure of the fraud in the CRU/NWIA data, and fully intends to go to Copenhagen to sign away our national sovereignty as penance for our contribution to global warming.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have collected together my concerns about Climategate into this one article. It documents that rulers lie to their people and have done so for thousands of years, and that Climategate is just the latest in a long series of lies to trick you out of money and freedom.

I know this is a long read, but I think I have put together a case for saying that the info-war over Climategate could be a turning point in the history of humankind.

Whether it will prove to be so is entirely up to you.

Climategate e-mails sweep America, may scuttle Barack Obama's Cap and Trade laws

the real car crash for Obama is on Capitol Hill where it is now confidently believed his Cap and Trade climate legislation is toast.

ClimateGate – A Comprehensive Archive

The documents and emails illustrated how prominent climatologists, affiliated with the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change, embarked on a venomous and coordinated campaign to ostracize climate skeptics and use their influence to keep dissenting reports from appearing in peer-reviewed journals, as well as using cronyism to avoid compliance with Freedom of Information Act requests.

Climategate Update 4: CRU Records Worthless

How much of all this raw data jettisoning is mere gross incompetence and how much is deliberate remains to be seen. What is clear is that CRU data for which no raw data exists and all studies since that have relied upon such CRU data have zero reliablity at the moment.

Nov 29 09:26

CLIMATEGATE - John Holdren contributed to "inconvienent truth" and Climategate

Lets start with Al Gore's "inconvenient truth", turns out the truth was inconvenient, so inconvenient they had to mess with the data and make the entire global warming scam to be the inconvenient lie. In 2006 Al Gore had a bit of help making his movie, that help came from John Holdren that contributed data to the movie. We all know what happens to that data or rather what happened to that data.

ClimateGate: CRU Agrees To Publish All The Data. That They Haven’t Thrown Away

Leading British scientists at the University of East Anglia, who were accused of manipulating climate change data - dubbed Climategate - have agreed to publish their figures in full.

In a statement welcomed by climate change sceptics, the university said it would make all the data accessible as soon as possible, once its Climatic Research Unit (CRU) had negotiated its release from a range of non-publication agreements.

Today, "um, well, ya see, our Bad!"

SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.

It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the problems with being a scientists is that you start really believing that everyone else around you is an idiot.

CRU gets outed for rigging the climate change data. So to try to recover from that they announce they will release the raw data, just six months after admitting they destroyed it all. Of course, it will take a very long time (at least until after the Carbon Tax gets jammed up our orifice ) to get "permission" to release that raw data.

What is going on here is obvious. Having been caught using phony data, CRU is going to stall for time while they come up with a new set of phony data. As if after having exposed the climate industry as a monstrous fraud that the public will just accept any new information at face value????

We are not that trusting.

The fact is that CRU, New Zealand's NWIA, IPCC and indeed the whole anthropogenic global warming industry is discredited. Shoveling a new pile of manure at us is not going to make the stink from the current pile of manure go away.

At NYT's Dot Earth: Young Scientist 'Disheartened' by Climategate; Core Problems Ignored

What's notably lacking in Revkin's report, Curry's letter, and many other Climategate-related establishment media reports is any willingness to entertain the notion that the scandal completely undermines the scientific basis for the argument that AGW (anthropogenic global warming) is occurring.

It seems that no one will dare say that the pathetic state of the data described in the leaked e-mails and the demonstrated willingness of those who control it to massage it hollows out the entire core of the AGW argument. As I understand it there is no other comparable data set.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is the reality of what is going on.

Those people still supporting AGW (anthropogenic global warming) are dependent on funding to support their current positions. That funding is in turn dependent in the continuation of faith that AGW (anthropogenic global warming) is correct. After all, when Galileo proved that the Earth Orbited the Sun, funding for continued research into epicycles vanished abruptly, along with tenures and the value of every degree issued in the field of Epicycles.

The same applies here. With precious rare exception, every academic whose degree and funding is based on AGW (anthropogenic global warming) is looking at a stark unemployment picture. In their minds, they are not fighting for scientific truth; they are fighting for their livelihood, and the proof is very simple. If their primary concern was really the long term welfare of planet Earth, one would think the Global Warming Cult would be delighted to find out there really is no danger after all. But, as is clearly evident, the goal is to support the orthodoxy even against the revelation that their core scientific foundation is based on a fraud.

Quite a few people, including President Obama, are financially invested in the Global Carbon Credit scheme, in which licenses are issued to pollute, with the surplus units bought and sold through brokerages. Al Gore and his fellow investors have already spent $150 million to "sell" anthropogenic global warming. They will not walk away from that investment easily.

Beyond the researchers whose degrees and funding are dependent on the continuation of a perceived public threat, the media outlets and government officials who signed onto this campaign are now realizing that they have wagered their entire credibility on AGW (anthropogenic global warming) at a time when their credibility was already strained from Saddam's "nookular" bombs, the economy, 9-11, etc. etc. etc. Climategate could well be the final nail in the coffin of the public's trust of media and government.

And looming over all of this is the push for a global government, which rested one third of their justification on the need for a global environmental authority to "solve" the problem of those icky humans messing up the globe.

There is a vast amount of personal reputation, money, and power on the line here. Climategate is the start of a major fight for the truth, one which if won will see the end of many well-known institutions of government and media.

UN scientists turn on each other: UN Scientist Declares Climategate colleagues Mann, Jones and Rahmstorf ’should be barred from the IPCC process’ — They are ‘not credible any more’

A UN scientist is declaring that his three fellow UN climate panel colleagues “should be barred from the IPCC process.” In a November 26, 2009 message on his website, UN IPCC contributing author Dr. Eduardo Zorita writes: “CRU files: Why I think that Michael Mann, Phil Jones and Stefan Rahmstorf should be barred from the IPCC process.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is going on here is obvious. The entire Global Government agenda is hanging by its neck from the Climategate Noose and the rush is on to find someone to blame it all on in the hopes that if enough small fry are sacrificed in flames before the mob, that the agenda itself can still be saved even if it is delayed.

Well, I for one will not be satisfied with a few servile scientists pilloried for doing what they were paid to do.

3) CRU asked to prepare data for a pre-emptive release in past couple of days but trouble reconciling issues between data bases has stopped this.

Climategate: ‘There Was Proof of Fraud All Along’

Nothing about the revelations surprises me. I have maintained email correspondence with most of these scientists for many years, and I know several personally. I long ago realized that they were faking the whole exercise.

When you enter into a debate with any of them, they always stop cold when you ask an awkward question. This applies even when you write to a government department or a member of Parliament. I and many of my friends have grown accustomed to our failure to publish and to lecture, and to the rejection of our comments submitted prior to every IPCC report.

But only recently did I realize that I had evidence of their fraud in my possession almost from the birth of my interest in the subject.

With the release of over 60 megabytes worth of incriminating emails, and the world getting a glimpse into the world of fanatical pseudo-science, there is little that can be done by the professors who are now on intellectual trial. Whether the emails were leaked or hacked, the people responsible for getting the information out have helped uncover the truth about “climate change” like no news story before it. While there have been piles of evidence to expose the global warming fraud in the past, a written exchange in their very own words is the ultimate proof.

One of his IPCC co-authors Eduardo Zorita has demanded that Mann should be banned from contributing to future reports because his scientific assessments are “not credible any more.” Zorita also calls for the barring of CRU’s director Phil Jones and another IPCC lead author, Stefan Rahmstorf.

ClimateGate For Dummies

On Thursday 19th November 2009 news began to circulate that hacked documents and communications from the University of East Anglia’s Hadley Climate Research Unit (aka CRU) had been published to the internet.

The information revealed how top scientists conspired to falsify data in the face of declining global temperatures in order to prop up the premise that man-made factors are driving climate change.

The documents and emails illustrated how prominent climatologists, affiliated with the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change, embarked on a venomous and coordinated campaign to ostracize climate skeptics and use their influence to keep dissenting reports from appearing in peer-reviewed journals, as well as using cronyism to avoid compliance with Freedom of Information Act requests.

Climategate: falsified data, suppressed evidence, professional journal censorship = carbon tax scam

now comprehensively documented:
Global temperatures have declined since 1998 while carbon emissions have risen, undermining the scientific argument for global warming. Now, the public release of hundreds of internal e-mails hacked from University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) reveal data was changed in order to fit the model of global warming and support a global carbon tax and trade.

Initial planning of the tax would cost Americans ~$100 billion every year, an average of ~$1,000 per each household's $50,000 annual income.

Oh, My! Climategate is Spreading

An agency of the New Zealand government has been cooking the books to create a warming trend where none exists, according to a joint research project by global warming skeptics at the Climate Conversation Group and the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition. The chief cook? Dr. Jim Salinger, considered one of the country's top scientists, who began the graph in the 1980s when he was at the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in the UK. CRU, of course, has become ground zero of Climategate at Dr. Salinger has maintained close relations with CRU since, as seen in the Climategate emails.

What do the uncooked books show? Rather than warming over the last hundred years, New Zealand's temperature has been steady.

She told me she has been simply inundated with callers, all of them utterly unconvinced that human influence has made any significant on so-called “Global Warming”. She was desperate to get a few balancing calls from people who do believe in AGW but just couldn’t find any.

Can you imagine this happening a year ago? Or even a month ago? Until Climategate, we “Sceptics” were considered freaks – almost as bad as Holocaust deniers – beyond the pale of reasonable balanced discussion. Suddenly we’re the norm. Climategate has finally given us the chance to express openly what many of us secretly felt all along:

Climategate: MSM Writers Try to Ignore Scandal in Global Warming Stories But Readers Bring Them Back to Reality

An hilariously bizarre situation is happening in the wake of the growing Climategate scandal. Many of the mainstream media stories about global warming are simply pretending it doesn't exist. Perhaps they feel that by ignoring Climategate entirely that it will just go away. Unfortunately for them, the readers of these global warming stories keep bringing up the inconvenient truth of Climategate by mentioning the scandal in the comments section over and over and over again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Two days ago, after the world found out about the CRU emails, the local paper the Honolulu Star Bulletin, ran a story "Mauna Loa Observatory's carbon dioxide readings near worst-case scenario " It was also the cover story for the paper edition, with full-color photo, front page, above the fold. This obvious attempt to re-assert the Global Warming Agenda inspired me to write them the following letter to the Editor.

I told you; the global warming cultists are going to ramp up the hysterical fear-mongering between now and Copenhagen.

Here is the email I sent to Star Bulletin

Shame on Star-Bulletin for this obvious pandering to private interests intent on making millions of dollars “Enronizing” the Cap and Credit Carbon tax system. And I do not choose that word casually. Enron’s Ken Lay aided Al Gore in setting up the structure for Al’s company (which has invested $150 million in “selling” global warming), planning to do to the world with Carbon Dioxide what Enron did to California with electricity!

Setting aside the breaking story of the whistleblower inside the Hadley Climate Research Unit that leaked emails and documents confirming that the global warming “industry” deliberately falsified data to create a climate of fear and panic for political purposes, I would like to remind you that the measurement station at the Mauna Loa Observatory sits on top of a volcano which has been in active eruption for close to 20 years. Carbon Dioxide is emitted by volcanoes. Indeed it is the second most abundant gas in volcanic venting after water vapor (which is also a greenhouse gas).

I am insulted that you treat your readers as uneducated simpletons with little grounding in the sciences. No wonder the corporate media is in decline.

Needless to say, it has not been published.

Translation: Obama will pledge the United States to curbing its appetite for energy, and thus its economic growth, will make reducing emissions a higher priority than creating new jobs and will agree to transfer $1.6 trillion of our wealth to China, India and the other booming developing economies.

And it may be based on doctored numbers.

They have got their talking point and the environmental pressure groups are already repeating it over and over: “The ‘global warming deniers’ are cherry-picking a few unfortunately worded emails and then taking them out of context.” Well, they are some pretty big, juicy cherries and there are a lots of them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Billions of dollars in Carbon-Credit trading fees are on the line, as well as the push for a global government. With the revelation that New Zealand's Climate Center has also been exposed for faking a warming trend, this is truly an international scandal. The globalists are fearing for their very existence, and they know no morality to hold them in check. There is nothing they will not attempt to salvage their plans.

CLIMATEGATE - AUSTRALIA'S CAP-AND-CREDIT CARBON TAX SCHEME COLLAPSES IN WAKE OF SCANDAL!

Wow, Australia’s parliament just imploded over discord due to emissions trading scheme being pushed by opposition leader Malcolm Turnbull

ClimateGate: The skeptics are vindicated

By releasing into the Internet about a thousand internal e-mails from the servers of the Climate Research Unit in the University of East Anglia — in some respects the international clearing house for climate change “science” — he has (or they have) put observers in a position to see that claims of conspiracy and fraud were not unreasonable.

More generally, we have been given the materials with which to obtain an insight into how all modern science works when vast amounts of public funding is at stake and when the vested interests associated with various “progressive” causes require a particular scientific result.

IT IS THE VESTED INTERESTS WE SHOULD BE FOCUSING OUR ATTENTIONS ON!

Climategate and the “T”-word

Here from the Steve McIntyre’s Climate Audit blog is a breathtakingly short and simple illustration of the values of Dr. Phil Jones, Director of the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit, from whence all these emails and documents concerning global warming have been lifted.

Phil Jones, Dec 3, 2008:

About 2 months ago I deleted loads of emails, so have very little – if anything at all.

Phil Jones, Nov 24, 2009 Guardian

We’ve not deleted any emails or data here at CRU.

Oops. Forget the “T”-word. How about the “P”-word (prevarication)? Or the “BFL” word (big fat liar)?

Climategate: BBC website still thinks it's a story about computer hacking

which is a bit like reporting another scandal as:

Watergate: ‘loose latches’ blamed

Security problems persist at a building complex in Foggy Bottom, Washington DC, following a burglary that reportedly caused the resignation of a leading political figure last night.

Watergate senior janitor Herb D Kowalski is calling for a thorough review of window latches, which he says are still “way too loose” two years after the burglary.

“I hear tell that politicians have gotten involved and that old Tricky Dick got fired,” he said.

“But that’s hardly the main issue, which is that those window latches are a disgrace. I said so when they put ‘em in, but did anyone listen?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually, the BBC wants you to think this is just a story about computer hacking.

TV Environmentalist Goes Nuts Over ClimateGate

If the juvenile and wildly erratic behavior of celebrity environmentalist Ed Begley jr. is anything to go by,the warmists are more upset about ClimateGate than they are letting on!

This was so funny it put me on the floor in tears. Very funny video. If you want to see a global warming person lose it totally on camera then watch the video!

Climate Expert: “Compromised” UN Scientists should be excluded from IPCC, Peer-Review Process

A prominent German scientist who was attacked in the leaked CRU emails by UN affiliated climate scientists has stated that the group should be barred from taking part in the peer-review process and excluded from the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Professor Hans von Storch, who is referred to in very unflattering terms several times in the leaked emails, points out that the CRU scientists acted as “gatekeepers”.

On the Climategate emails

Doubts about how much humans are contributing to changes in the climate have had an increasing number of things in their favor: a leveling off and even cooling of global temperatures over the past decade; the fact that Anthropogenic Global Warming theory (AGW) doesn’t account fully for a number of natural effects on the climate; admissions that the likes of Al Gore have trumped up the potential consequences of global warming in order to gain public attention; serious questions about the accuracy of the data that AGW proponents cite, and the scientific rigor with which the data have been collected.

What was missing was a paper trail indicating that warmists were manipulating the exchange of information and attempting to silence skeptics. Until now.

Climategate – How Did Climate Change Come To This?

This was never about the environment. It was just about the money, and nobody even bothered to check one of the most important things at the root of the whole debate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Damage Control is that this is a science scandal. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is a political scandal because the politics preceded the manufactured science.

'Climategate' - CRU hacked into and its implications

I was forwarded the chain of e-mails on the 12th October, which are comments from some of the worlds leading climate scientists written as a direct result of my article 'whatever happened to global warming'. The e-mails released on the internet as a result of CRU being hacked into are identical to the ones I was forwarded and read at the time and so, as far as l can see, they are authentic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sooooooo ... BBC HAD THE CRU EMAILS OVER A MONTH AGO... and sat on the story until the Blogs forced it into the public eye?????

Call For Independent Inquiry Into Climategate as Global Warming Fraud Implodes

Calls for an independent inquiry into what is being dubbed “Climategate” are growing as the foundation for man-made global warming implodes following the release of emails which prove researchers colluded to manipulate data in order to “hide the decline” in global temperatures.

Former British chancellor Lord Lawson was the latest to demand an impartial investigation be launched into the scandal, which arrives just weeks before the UN climate conference in Copenhagen. “They should set up a public inquiry under someone who is totally respected and get to the truth,” he told the BBC Radio Four Today programme.
