FREE REPUBLIC EXCLUSIVE: The Hadley CRU emails are FAKE! [Satire]
grey_whiskers ^ | 11-24-2009 | grey_whiskers

Posted on 11/24/2009 7:38:25 PM PST by grey_whiskers

STOP THE PRESSES!

After doing a search on a number of links to the controversial emails which have been leaked or hacked from the Hadley Climate Research Center, it has been discovered that they are most likely FAKE.

An examination of the emails in detail shows that they used proportional fonts, which were not available at the time of George Bush's stint in the Texas Air National Guard.

"He played on our FEARS!" thundered a visibly upset Al Gore, screaming from a prepared statement. "He BETRAYED THIS COUNTRY!"

Mary Mapes was unavailable for comment.

A little too tongue-in-cheek for this Freeper, although I’m sure that it won’t be long before such a defense is mounted.

It’s not the nature of the evidence, but the seriousness of the charge!

I thought it was lol fun-ny. Maybe I needed the comic relief.

It may have helped to have been well enough acquainted with the poster and the references.

But then again, I loved the Obama Nobel prize threads, too, even the multiple "aw geez, not this again" reactionary portions.
It was a FR riot. What a day. It was absurdest classic...

I was looking thru the raw data files, there are quite a few 999.9 in the temperature column.

This could be the reporting device signaling a malfunction, or a cover-up for a lazy meterologist, or something else.

I was wondering when the computer sees a 999.9 what value gets inputed into the graphing calculations? 999.9? AVG? MEAN? NULL? WAG?

Until someone actually cranks up the programs and feed in the data, or compares the inputs with the outputs - it is all speculation - but given the tone of those emails. What are we most likely to find?

That’s the most amazingly-almost-semi-not-quite-successful attempt at non-humor I have ever read.

Tree ring data shows conclusively that those emails could not have been transferred to Russia without significant manipulation of the server code.

Oh, that’s really a Wow!

Super, Super Wow!

I’ve spent so much time and money on this issue, I even think that the Brazilian Ckinachow - “Slime” that sleeps between Tipper and me, is just trying to get away from GLOBAL WARMING.

Bless his soul!

I really hope that my scam GW issue will be able to save “slime” from a possible fly swatter in the office!

But wait. I went to one of the sites when the whole thing was breaking and downloaded the zip file in question.....just to get in on it, you know, one more hit one more server of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. Looking thru the zip file there was tons of files you would have to be a nerdy/tech type to manipulate, but one of the few that I did recognize is this one and, I must admit, it has me puzzeled.

That was levity.


Note the run on use of modifiers and the quasi serious tone.

Wait...if it was an attempt at non-humor...it was successful, quite successful.

Did it really take you 5 minutes?

Oh Great- now you’ve given Democratic underground, Huffington Post, and the mainstream media the amunition they need to fight back “But but... Fr has proof the emails are fake- they wrote an article about them being fake”

If you don't like satire, read the other two threads I posted tonight on the topic:

Selected CRU Emails (h/t to boy-on-a-bike and to Darwin Central)

Selected CRU Emails, Part II: Independence of the Press?

Cheers!

Sorry, I didn't think it was *THAT* confusing -- you know, the quote from Al Gore "screaming from a prepared script" was supposed to be the tipoff.

If you didn't get the proportional fonts and Texas Air National Guard reference first, that is.

Cheers!

Thank heavens the mods labeled it "satire" This post was running a lie - like a banner ad in "latest posts". I'm with you - it's lame.
