[Welcome Rifters readers! Just so’s ya know, we keep our knuckles clean shaven and our women and chillin’s all protected and stuff around here, so play nice. Geez, if I was as scared shitless as all you Global-Warming-Is-Real guys I’d be changin’ my tidy whitties every hour on the hour! 😉 Enjoy — ‘Okie’]
Last Friday it was announced that the servers of University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit had been hacked and over a thousand emails and several dozen documents had been released to the Internet. These emails and documents present Anthropogenic Climate Change as an ongoing, scientists-protected hoax of massive proportions. As James Delingpole’s Telegraph.co.uk’s article asks: Climategate: the final nail in the coffin of ‘Anthropogenic Global Warming’?
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 Hadley CRU) and released 61 megabites 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 Hadley 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.
Manipulation of evidence:
Private doubts about whether the world really is heating up:
Suppression of evidence:
Fantasies of violence against prominent Climate Sceptic scientists:
Attempts to disguise the inconvenient truth of the Medieval Warm Period (MWP):
How best to squeeze dissenting scientists out of the peer review process.
Be sure and visit that link for all the goodies inside those ellipses! Some of the damning emails can be read over at whatsupwiththat.com; here’s a couple to whet your appetite for Global Warming Hysterical Fabrications and other nonsense — like instructions on how to “salvage” the discredited hockey stick graph presentation using Mike’s Nature Trick and this Phil Jones fella’s cheeriness at the death of a fellow scientists that happened to be a warming skeptic:
Dear Ray, Mike and Malcolm,
Once Tim’s got a diagram here we’ll send that either later today or
first thing tomorrow.
I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps
to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd from
1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline. Mike’s series got the annual
land and marine values while the other two got April-Sept for NH land
N of 20N. The latter two are real for 1999, while the estimate for 1999
for NH combined is +0.44C wrt 61-90. The Global estimate for 1999 with
data through Oct is +0.35C cf. 0.57 for 1998.
Thanks for the comments, Ray.

In an odd way this is cheering news ! One other thing about the CC paper – just found
another email – is that McKittrick says it is standard practice in Econometrics journals
to give all the data and codes !! According to legal advice IPR overrides this.
“It is with deep sadness that the Daly Family have to announce the sudden death of John
Daly.Condolences may be sent to John’s email account (email@example.com)
Reported with great sadness
Did you see this on your nightly network news? I wouldn’t know as I don’t watch those propaganda outlets anymore. Fox News covered it and notes that:
In an exclusive interview in Investigate magazine’s TGIF Edition, Phil Jones, the head of the Hadley CRU, confirmed that the leaked data is real.
I guess MSNBC couldn’t afford to ignore it. CBS News, ABC News and the Washington Post run the AP piece calling the email leaks appalling. The New York Times does cover the hacking but IMO tries to mitigate the damage a bit:
The evidence pointing to a growing human contribution to global warming is so widely accepted that the hacked material is unlikely to erode the overall argument. However, the documents will undoubtedly raise questions about the quality of research on some specific questions and the actions of some scientists.
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air comments:
Do scientists use data to test theories, or do they use theories to test data? Scientists will claim the former, but here we have scientists who cling to the theory so tightly that they reject the data. That’s not science; it’s religious belief.
For me, The Anchoress has the perfect wrapup:
So, we can’t trust science to give us data uncorrupted by agendas. We can’t trust the press to give us news uncorrupted by agendas. We can’t trust the government to do much of anything, purely out of service to America. We can’t trust the schools to actually teach our children the basics. Who can we trust?
Perhaps it is down to trusting ourselves as much as we dare, and trusting God even more, in the end.
With our lives and futures in the hands of the likes of President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid one has to plead, “Oh Mighty God — please help us!”
