Posted on 11/26/2009 9:58:08 PM PST by Frankusa
Data from the research of the British scientists P. Jones exposed in Climategate was used in official report on Climate Change to US Congress.
Climategate began when anonymous hacker published on Internet tons of e-mails of Phil Jones, director of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England. The correspondence seems to suggest that the data in the research was tempered with in non-scientific ways.
Mr. Joness research was used in an official document presented to the President of the USA and the US Congress in October 2009.
Mr P. D. Jones is featured on p.17 of the report to US Congress as co-author of a science paper Consistency of modelled and observed temperature trends in the tropical troposphere, International Journal of Climatology.
To make sure it is the same scientist I followed the publication and was able to confirm that P.D. Jones was representing in the research cited for the US Congress a Climatic Research Unit, School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich.
The report was made available to Congress in October and the Introduction letter is signed by Dr. John P. Holdren, Director, Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology. Holdren is featured in the e-mails hacked and released in the wake of the UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen.
There is a great possibility in the light of the British Climategate that somebody was feeding US Congress wrong information and fake data. Congressional Investigation is underway...

Who prosecutes lying in official documents? Can we get a special prosecutor appointed, perhaps in one of the states that will be devistated by this, like Wyoming?
This is far more effective a use of the new knowledge that Man Caused Global Warming (never..never use the language of the Left and type “AGW” or Climate Change” ALWAYS use man has caused...) is a SCAM.
The number of pools of supposedly reliable data that this has tainted is massive and only a fool, a fanatic, or someone who stands to gain financially can toe the line, rational people the once “flat eathers” have the Truth on their side and now have the firepower to destroy this SCAM once and for all.
This work was funded by the UK Natural Environmental Research Council
The NERC has an ethics policy which states:
a. We expect those organisations whose staff or students receive funding from us to respect the policy, and we reserve the right to refuse funding to those who dont.
b. Operate with honesty and integrity in all our work, taking steps to identify and deal with corrupt scientific practices and professional misconduct.
I wonder if they also gave info to SCOTUS before it ruled that the EPA has to regulate any entity which produces CO2....
"Does this mean we can have our incandescent light bulbs back?"
...is going to become the rallying cry that helps drag this swindle into the light of day.
And yes, it is a swindle- a fraud and a cheat and a scam-- a deliberately designed construct intended to con you out of things you hold dear-- money, prosperity, freedom... and a few other things, as well.
I'm keeping a running file ( always updated ) on this fraud and scandal:
"Hadley CRU has apparently been hacked [epic fraud?]"

What I would like to know is how many research grants were granted or denied based on scientifically accepted concepts, i.e. peer review.
This morning I sent letter to my Senator asking her stance on AWG now that the data they have based legislation on has been proven faked. I eagerly await her form letter response.
