Three Things You Absolutely Must Know About Climategate
Pajamas Media ^ | November 24, 2009 | Iain Murray

Posted on 11/24/2009 1:30:53 PM PST by CedarDave

They’re calling it “Climategate.” The scandal that the suffix –gate implies is the state of climate science over the past decade or so revealed by a thousand or so emails, documents, and computer code sets between various prominent scientists released following a leak from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia in the UK.

This may seem obscure, but the science involved is being used to justify the diversion of literally trillions of dollars of the world’s wealth in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by phasing out fossil fuels. The CRU is the Pentagon of global warming science, and these documents are its Pentagon Papers.

Here are three things everyone should know about the Climategate Papers. Links are provided so that the full context of every quote can be seen by anyone interested.

First, the scientists discuss manipulating data to get their preferred results. ...

Secondly, scientists on several occasions discussed methods of subverting the scientific peer review process to ensure that skeptical papers had no access to publication. ...

Finally, the scientists worked to circumvent the Freedom of Information process of the United Kingdom.

I think that an amendment to the Health Bill can deal with Global Warming.

First we suture OBlowhard's mouth shut and we have reduced the amount of hot air entering the atmosphere.

Second we sacrifice the Goracle to Mauna Lea in Haiwaii to appease the god of Volcanoes.

Third we house the Gitmo detainees at the DEW Line Site at Barter Island. We can feed them to the Wolverines!

Fourth Push Pelosi off the Golden Gate Bridge!

Did I miss anything?

Climatology will be science (and not a religion) when Hell freezes over, and Al Gore doesn’t deny it!

I read the programmer’s notes in that readme file, and ...

I really shouldn’t use expletives like I planned.

Their data is screwed, in total disarray, untrustworthy by their own admission. They are writing their program so that it massages the data to what they think it should say. They publish temperature variances to 0.1 degrees, yet they’re excited when the program comes to within 0.5 degrees of what they expected — they’re publishing with far more accuracy than they actually have.

I’m a skeptical person by nature, but I’m absolutely astounded at the depth of the ineptness and treachery.

More and more programmers are doing the same. I liken it to a small leak in an earthen dam — it will grow in volume and though temporary measures will slow it, it will eventually cause failure of the whole structure. I expect that will eventually happen here. It’s at the top Drudge’s page with links.

The curse of the “GW”...maybe Gore should consider avoiding all things “GW” since one cost him an election and another his soul.

So what will be the outrage when we find out how every election is tainted by corrupt voting machines. The whole nation is nothing but corruption among all of our leaders or elites.

Also, he claims to be using correlation to compare his results to the original results for Norwich. If, by correlation, he's referring to 'r' (correlation coefficient), then he's off base.

Correlation merely tells you how well one set of numbers predicts another set of numbers. It tells you NOTHING about how they coincide.

For example, assume the original Norwich numbers (whatever they represent) were 1,3,5,7,9. Assume he re-ran the reconstructed code and got 1, 3, 5, 7, 9. The 'r' would be 1. Assume he re-ran the reconstructed code and got 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5, and 4.5. The 'r' would still be 1.

If the top hucksters believe that Anthropogenic Global Warming is a a real phenomena why would they feel the need to manipulate data and crush all dissenting points of view? They obviously have little if any confidence in their own predictions. What will happen to their followers, the true believers as the implication begins to sink in? As their belief system begins to crumble maybe we should start watching environmental activists for signs of depression or worse. Should we try to stop them as they head for the cliffs or just let them jump?

Fifth - John McCain needs to be directly asked about this scandal and how it affects his opinion on “Global Warming” aka. Climate Change.

The Church of Climatology wants YOU!

We can help you remove the Cirrus Engrams in your brain, placed there by Zenu!

These Engrams keep you from seeing the evidence that the world is heat unctrollably, because of a nefarious plot by Zenu! (Alienogenic Global Warming, or AGW, for short)

With the use of our Patented Ergomoter (E-Meter for short) you can SCIENTIFICALLY (Quant SUF!) discover just how much your extraneous actions are contributing to AGW!

Once you know this VALUABLE information, we can help you calculate how much you should contribute to us to MITIGATE your impact, and to FIGHT Zenu, and his nefarious AGW!

Come in today for a (well, almost) FREE introductory course! We'll be glad you did!

Agreed. Not only will the "good guys and gals" start leaking not just about GW but various other liberal scams but it will be a huge 2-for-1 special when the Dem-leaning media continues to ignore all leaks/info/dissent that reveals the corrupt (and often illegal) "by any means necessary" mentality of the far left.

From the article:

“It does not mean that there is no warming trend or that mankind has not been responsible for at least some of the warming.”

These bastards are worse than the environmentalists. What all this means is that nothing human beings do contributes to global climate, and this entire fraud is supported by these wishy-washy so-called critics. When the hell are people going to have the guts to call the entire environmental movement the leftist fraud it has always been and always will be.
