Skip to comments.ClimateGate Data Series Part I: A break-down of large data file (Simplified Overview)
Posted on 11/27/2009 8:17:45 AM PST by opentalk
Al Gore, George Soros and other Carbon Pirates have got Congress to fund and direct Billions of dollars towards Green Energy and Carbon Control projects based on bogus data claims. These data claims stem from the recently hacked Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia in the UK.
The CRU was set up by the US Dept. of Energy at this university. Why not a US university? It could be because the UK, for the longest time, had no Freedom of Information Act, like the US does. Youll soon see why these scientists and the Dept. of Energy wanted to keep the data a secret or unverifiable. Because the outcomes and the analysis of the data are purely political (Scientists likely paid or on payroll to do so), it has not factual or scientific basis whatsoever.
How do we know this to be true? Because recently, 3000 e-mails of the Scientists conducting the research at the CRU were hacked, along with several data files. While the e-mails are quite damming, the data files are the guts of the CRU's actual computer modelsthe data, the code and the applications. It is really the blatant manipulation of the data that is the dagger to the heart of the Global Warming Myth.
The Harry data file. Data manipulation of temperature data from 2006-2009
One of the largest data files recovered was a file processed and logged by Ian "Harry" Harris at the CRU. As youll see on this tour of this data file, Harry records comments and explains his trial and tribulations to skew the data into a form that supports a global warming trend, though the data indicated with scientific certainty that the average temperature has declined over the last 100 years, Harry attempts to reverse this.
The data file is named HARRY_READ_ME.txt. The first line of this file reads:
READ ME for Harry's work on the CRU TS2.1/3.0 datasets, 2006-2009!. First, Harry indicates hes identified the locations of the 2006-2009 temperature data files and the databases for performing t-mean. For those not familiar with Statistical Math (Stats), T-mean refers to a T-Test of a Difference of Means. A Mean in Stats means the average of a given set of values. So if you have multiple data sets (as we do with temperatures ranging over different periods of time between 2006-2009), Harry needs to figure out what the average difference of these averages are in other words, the average of all averages across all data sets.
Creating Global Temperature Anomaly files and excluding risky values
Next, Harry regenerates the Global Temperature anomalies into a separate data file using the existing data files. He uses a Fortran 90 (Science/Math programming language) program (anomdtb.f90) to data-mine these existing data files to extract any temperature anomalies and separates these temps by writing them to different files. Harrys comment confirming this:
Successfully ran anomdtb.f90 to produce anomaly files (as per item 7 Had to make some changes to allow for the move back to alphas (different field length from the 'wc -l' command). The wc command in the Linux operating system stands for word count and gives you the number of characters, words or lines contained in a file. Alphas or Alpha values measure the risk of getting a Type I error. A Type I error in Statistics (Stats Math) means the conclusion is incorrect for the data and the hypothesis must be rejected. Harrys comment indicates there are numerous Alpha values and as such, would lend to a high risk of producing a Type I error. However, Harry (by his comment) isnt using the data set with Alpha values, but instead using an alternate data set he created without them!
Mapping Global Carbon Emissions Totals to a Standard Grid Model
Harrys next step is to map the global totals of carbon emissions (carbon emissions is what Gore/Obama etc. want to tax the hell out of you for) onto a standard model grid. Think of a model grid as a series of plotting points on a map. The goal here is to have these carbon emission totals plotted on a grid that represents a time scale. The term regridding means to execute a program to re-create the model. There are a number of ways to produce the image file representing this model (.glo) file, and Harry is asking why not use Fortran to generate this file instead an IDL routine:
Successfully ran the IDL regridding routine quick_interp_tdm.pro (why IDL?! Why not F90?!) to produce '.glo' files.

Looks like they’re taking advantage of the weekend to sanitize their site.
Talk about exposing a fraud!
>> The CRU was set up by the US Dept. of Energy at this university. Why not a US university? It could be because the UK, for the longest time, had no Freedom of Information Act, like the US does.
That’s a juicy bit of information, if it’s true.
I can’t find any hard evidence that the USDOE started CRU East Anglia, or funded it. There are suggestions about funding from outside sources, however.
FWIW, here’s their history page.
Scientists who are outside of an area of specialty tend to believe the scientists who are the recognized specialists in that area. It's natural to trust your "colleagues", since they are expected to extend the same professional courtesy to you when it is your specialty that is being discussed.
It's like a fraternity, with PhD in some field of science being the secret handshake.
So, if you want to corner the market in some technical area, you just need to stack the deck with like-minded people in all of the key positions at the major universities. When the subject is a socialist hot-button, and 95% of the professors in major universities are socialists, it's not hard to make this happen.
Then the whole scientific community starts parroting what this group of politically-motivated scientists is saying. After all, we must defer to the specialists in the area.
Happy Belated T-day!
I am loving how the blogoshere is processing this stuff and making it understandable.

Lord Monckton, who challenged Al Gore on man-made climate change and was rebuffed by a gaggle of peevish Democrats, wants the climate scientists caught red-handed fiddling with climate stats prosecuted.
They are not merely bad scientists they are crooks. And crooks who have perpetrated their crimes at the expense of British and U.S. taxpayers, writes Monckton. With Professor Fred Singer, who founded the U.S. Satellite Weather Service, I have reported them to the UKs Information Commissioner, with a request that he investigate their offenses and, if thought fit, prosecute.
Monckton does not hold out much hope for that, however. But I wont be holding my breath: In the police state that Britain has now sadly become, with supine news media largely owned and controlled by the government, the establishment tends to look after its own.
The corporate media is doing its best to downplay the story. Revelation of a series of embarrassing e-mails by climate scientists provides fodder for critics, but experts believe the issue will not hurt the U.S. climate bills chance for passage or efforts to forge a global climate change deal, reports Reuters. Anthony Leiserowitz, the director of the Yale Project on Climate Change, said the release of the emails will be remembered mostly as embarrassment to the researchers. But theres no smoking gun in the e-mails from what Ive seen.
No smoking gun? The so-called researchers colluded to modify climate data in favor of their man-made climate change fairy tale.
The tiny, close-knit clique of climate scientists who invented and now drive the global warming fraud for fraud is what we now know it to be tampered with temperature data so assiduously that, on the recent admission of one of them, land temperatures since 1980 have risen twice as fast as ocean temperatures, writes Monckton in a bog entry today. One of the thousands of emails recently circulated by a whistleblower at the University of East Anglia, where one of the worlds four global-temperature datasets is compiled, reveals that data were altered so as to prevent a recent decline in temperature from showing in the record. In fact, there has been no statistically significant global warming for 15 years and there has been rapid and significant cooling for nine years.
Instead of demanding researchers answer questions about inventing and fiddling with data, the University of East Anglia has asked the cops to investigate the hackers who revealed the bogus work of our globally-respected Climatic Research Unit that supposedly produces research [that] is, and has always been, fully peer-reviewed by the relevant journals, and is one strand of research underpinning the strong consensus that human activity is affecting the worlds climate in ways that are potentially dangerous.
In other words, fake data used to impose a one-world government and global serfdom is fully peer-reviewed.
In addition to supporting the police in their enquiries, we will ourselves be conducting a review, with external support, into the circumstances surrounding the theft and publication of this information and any issues emerging from it, states a CRU update posted earlier today.
Its definitely a crime to do that in the U.K., and we have reported it to the police, said Simon Dunford, a spokesman at East Anglia, which is conducting an internal probe.
The University of East Anglia should be consulting lawyers. Antonio Regalado, writing for Science Magazine, notes that university researchers may also find themselves in legal jeopardy if they deleted emails requested under the U.K.s Freedom of Information (FOIA) legislation, a crime under U.K. law.
Professor Phil Jones, for instance, apparently engaged in a criminal conspiracy to destroy evidence formally petitioned under a Freedom of Information request. Can you delete any emails you may have had with Keith re AR4? Keith will do likewise, Jones emailed Michael E. Mann, a climatologist and statistician at Pennsylvania State University, on May 29, 2008.
As noted above, deleting emails subject to a FOI request is a criminal offense in the United Kingdom, punishable with a fine.
The arrogant fraudsters, Monckton continues, have refused, for years and years and years, to reveal their data and their computer program listings. Now we know why: As a revealing 15,000-line document from the computer division at the Climate Research Unit shows, the programs and data are a hopeless, tangled mess. In effect, the global temperature trends have simply been made up.
Meanwhile, over at the Huffington Post, Katherine Goldstein and Craig Kanalley dismiss the CRU scandal out of hand. It provides ammo for the right-wing nuts who are according to the ADL and the Department of Homeland Security a threat to the nation.
Despite the lack of evidence of some sort of conspiracy in the scientific community, this criminal activity has created fodder for right-wing groups and websites to promote their own agenda that global warming is not real. This comes at a time when international attention is more and more focused on the climate crisis in advance of the UN climate talks in Copenhagen in December, they write.
Naturally, the climate change progressives and the globalist foundations that support and nurture them are worried about the CRU scandal because the United Nations conference on climate change is right around the corner. In December, the 15th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change will meet in Copenhagen to work on a successor treaty to the Kyoto Protocol.
As Lord Monckton explained in October, a realized Copenhagen treaty will establish a one world Marxist government.
The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries, in satisfaction of what is called, coyly, climate debt because weve been burning CO2 and they havent. Weve been screwing up the climate and they havent. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement, Monckton warned. They are about to impose a communist world government on the world. You have a president who has very strong sympathies with that point of view. Hes going to sign it. Hell sign anything. Hes a Nobel Peace Prize [winner]; of course hell sign it.
Replace Marxist with bankster and you get a better idea of what our rulers have up their sleeves. Moreover, wealth is never transferred to the third world. It is transferred to the global elite. Feel-good palliatives about feeding the poor are merely a parlor trick to steal your money and reduce you to indentured servitude.
Ping me if you find one I've missed.
From the Corbett Report
I thought I saw a note in one of the emails to the effect that DOE money was used .,...to start the CRU...course...I think Jones is at least the third director...

Obama is a Spook. I don't mean that in the racist sense of the word.
Obama's mother was/is a CIA officer.
Obama was one of 8 students selected to study Sovietology in Columbia's IR program under Brzezinski, one of the CIA's top- ranking officers. This how the CIA partners with the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) as Brzezinski was also appointed director of the CFR, by David Rockefeller when the CFR was first created.
The following research information came from The Obama Timeline by Don Fredrick. I highly recommend this timeline to anyone really wanting to know Obama (and not going by what he says):
Obama meets Zbigniew Brzezinski while at Columbia. Brzezinski, a CIA expert on the Soviet Union, teaches international relations and is the head of the Institute for Communist Affairs at Columbia. Obama is heavily influenced by Brzezinski who would later, as National Security Advisor for President Jimmy Carter, be instrumental in encouraging Americas betrayal of the Shah of Iran (which then led to the takeover of Iran by Ayatollah Khomeini, the 444-day American hostage debacle, and the rise of Ahmadinejad)
After his last year at Columbia, Obama was sent by the US government (CIA faction) to Pakistan in 1981.
The following research information came from The Obama Timeline (over 350 pages of research data) by Don Fredrick:
Obama stayed with the family of Hassan Chandoo while in Karachi. Another of Obamas hosts, in Jacobabad, Pakistan, is Muhammadian Mian Soomro, Obamas senior by 11 years, son of a Pakistani politician (Ahmadmian Soomro, the deputy speaker of the West Pakistan Assembly) and himself a politician, who later becomes interim President of Pakistan when Pervez Musharraf resigns in August of 2008. Soomro states that someone personally requested that his father watch over Barack Obama, but Soomro will not name that individual who allegedly is an American, possibly with CIA ties, now living in South America.
After Columbia and Pakistan, Obama went to work for a CIA front, Business International Corporation (one of whose specialties was recruiting leaders of domestic left-wing organizations as CIA assets).
Over the years, a certain CIA faction have become experts at toppling governments. Some of their work include "Operation Ajax" in over-throwing Iran's Democracy, and then placing and backing a dictatorial Shah as leader at the time (1950s), until the Iranian revolution overthrew him in 1979 for a Theocracy. Other government toppling and/or favorable leader placement include Indonesia, Iraq, former Soviet Republics (i.e. Georgia) and so on.
Communists started infiltrating the CIA most notably in the 1970s. Brzezinski is a Marxist and Obama mentor (and now part of his administration and inner circle).
So, you see what is happening now, this same CIA faction (which many top CIA officers are also members of the CFR and Trilateral Commisssion) are toppling the US government! They have only toppled dozens of smaller governments to date, but with one of their recruits in the Whitehouse, they feel confident in taking down the US.
Also, Obama was chosen to "woo" both Africa and the Arab League of Nations into the Western Elite model for a one world government. By having Black skin and deep Muslim connections, it was a logical choice to get these countries and continents "under their wing". As Brzezinski stated in his own book "The Grand Chess Board" (a blueprint for a one world government powered by the Western Elite), it was essential to claim these Pawns because together they account for 2/3 of the world's energy resources (Oil and Minerals).
Some things to note:
Obama ran for state office and his opponent quit the race before the election.
Obama ran for US Senate, and his opponent quit the race before the election.
Obama ran for President., and his foreign policy chief was, who else, one of the CIA's top officers, Brzezinski.
Also, McCain (maybe on purpose) slipped on Larry King and said Obama will be the next President, and this was when he was leading by 1 pt in the credible Polls (Zogby etc.)
It is also why McCain near the end of his campaign started telling the people of America to "Stand-up and fight for America. It is the greatest country in the world, fight for her!!)
And, like in the past, the Muslim brotherhood and Muslim intelligence agencies have been fooling this CIA faction by placing their props in a position for CIA recruitment. In other words, putting their guy in front of the right people at the CIA (Brzezinski) to be noticed and recruited.
Does this make Obama a dual agent for both the CIA NWO (New World Order) objective AND the radical Islam (world order under Islam) objective?
In effect it does, and this why you're seeing Obama do both agendas simultaneously. Eventually, one will collide with the other, but the people of the USA don't have that long to wait before their freedoms are eroded. The time to step-up is now.
Only, we the people can stop this by demanding Obama prove his eligibility. Time is running out.
Obama was one of 8 students selected to study Sovietology in Columbia's IR program under Brzezinski, one of the CIA's top-ranking officers. This how the CIA partners with the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) as Brzezinski was also appointed director of the CFR, by David Rockefeller when the CFR was first created.Thanks Ernest.

Ernest. We taint supposed to talk about the CFR.
I need to be civil and not frothing at the mouth like I am right now....
USDOE has definitely funded projects within Hadley CRU. Somewhere on their website I ran across a page that lists a couple of them.
The questions are:
1) Did USDOE *start up* Hadley CRU?
2) Did they do so explicitly to get around US FOI laws?
Those two assertions by the author are not well supported (yet).
